AMW Reports: The Body Shop Colour Me Spring 2010

Last Friday is a very exciting day for me!  Aside from being my favorite day of the week, aside from being the day nearing my birthday, it's The Body Shop's Colour Me Spring Bloggers' Event!  I haven't really given The Body Shop a chance when it comes to makeup, I've always loved their skincare products and their makeup brushes, so this is the perfect time for me to investigate further and see what The Body Shop can offer!

Introducing, The Body Shop's Spring Trend Make-Up


I'll show you up close and personal on TBS' Colour Me Spring 2010 collection plus some wonderful tips from a make-up artist!

Shimmer Cubes (Php 1,195.00/approx $26.00)

Make-up artist Chase Aston says:
"These fabulous Pop-tastic shades are my favorite Shimmer Cubes ever!  Wear shades alone, or smudged together, creating seamless, contrasting hues on the eye-lids.  Use with The Body Shop metallic Eye Definers for a modern twist on the smoky eye, layer shades for an individual and unique eye-look.  These four fantastic, easy-to-wear shimmering shades can be applied dry for sheer hints of color.  Or apply with a moist brush, for a more intense wash of color."


Lip and Cheek Stain (Php795.00/approx $17.25)

Chase Aston, make-up artist says: 
"Easy to apply, sweep over a nude lip, wearing alone for a sheer flash of color or re-apply to intensify the hue.  Worn on cheeks, layer with Kiss of Color to shape, shade, contour and highlight the cheekbones"

Kiss of Colour Cheek Blush (Php1,395.00/approx $30.32)

Make-up expert Chase Aston, says: 
"Softly smile, then press Kiss of Colour onto the apples of your cheeks.  Next, using either your finger or a blusher brush, blend up and along your cheekbones.  These fantastic shades can be worn alone, or layered over The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain to intensify the shade."

Hi-Shine Lip Treatment (Php595.00/approx $12.90)

Make-up maestro Chase Aston says these are: 
"Two fabulous, super glossy, ultra moisturizing, must-have lip shades for spring.  Fresh and flirty, easy to wear shades that can be worn alone for a sheer hint of a tint, layered over Lip & Cheek Stain and Colour glide Lip Colour."
Love Gloss (Php650.00/approx $14.13)

I've been ooh-ing and ahh-ing over the new collection!  And trust me, I've seen so much make-up from The Body Shop on that day and my  mind went blank and I didn't even took a shot on the huge traincase!  Whatever I ask from them, they seem to have them!  Where in the world am I from?  I have tried their liquid eyeliner and it's pure love!  

Aside from being impressed with the new collection, the event was such a success as beauty bloggers met up again and some, for the very first time!  And it's even more fun creating "Spring Make-up Looks" while chit-chatting with the rest of the girls!

These 2 ladies look gorgeous even without make-up!

Dearest partner-in-crime Shen and a wonderful lady I've been wanting to meet for a year!
Teeyah!  Girl!  You are hard to get! Imagine?  A year to finally meet you in person? 
Worth the wait though!


And I can't help but feel envious of her sexy outfit!  
Off shouldered top?
I gotta have one ahem...make one!  *pulls one sleeve down*

A gorgeous model-like blogger Tish and her beloved!
Great to meet you both!!!

Also met the girl behind Candy-Blush
Kristine (right) and her friend
They're both super *ahem* young! :)
I seriously felt over 30 with them around! *laughs*


Thanks to Earth for this shot!  I have to grab this because I don't have a photo of her!  It was such a fun event as you can see from our smiles!


Wonderful cupcakes with cute colors that made me want to keep it rather than eating them!

And finally, before I end this long post!  I want to thank the wonderful people from The Body Shop for holding such exciting event for bloggers like us.

Marian Alarcon, Category Manager

And the rest of the fresh-faced girls!

*sigh* events like these leaves me with such euphoria!  I do meet a lot of people online but meeting them in person is different!  It's nice to really talk to them, no matter how different our personalities are, we all ended up talking about the same thing, our love for beauty...both in and out!

Have a wonderful day!
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
