Leona Lewis is the new brand activist of The Body Shop. Perfect timing I’d say as The Body Shop helped to enforce the law to ban animal testing in the UK of March 11th. I was keen to try a few bits from Lewis’s limited edition makeup line. The line consists of line includes four high-shine lip glosses, two shimmering blush palettes, a blush brush and a sweet adaptation of my favorite cult classic white musk scent, called “White Musk Libertine”.
I tried the two lip glosses from the collection Bronze and Coral. Coral doesn’t really show up on my skintone, but give my lip high shine. The Bronze gloss appears mauve on my skin, but nonetheless its my favourite amongst the two.
This blush has great pigmentation, but sadly doesn’t match my skin tone As its quite shimmery it doubles up as a highlight and eye shadow for me personally. I think this blush/highlight/eye shadow will be a staple in spring makeup.
Leona Lewis’s The White Musk Libertine edition certainly has more floral scents, which will instantly be a spring favourite for me. The musk scent used is synthetic, and not animal derived like the original. On the plus side the fragrance is EDP so you know a few squirts will last longer.
The range is available from today:
