A few weeks ago, The Body Shop released some new Honey Bronze makeup items and the Highlighting Domes just looked too pretty to pass up! I also decided to pick up the Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm (not new) because it got good reviews and I like the other balms they make, so…yah.
The Honey Bronze Highlighting Domes are available in 3 shades and I chose shade #2 – a soft peachy pink with a hint of golden shimmer and a slight honey fragrance. (The other 2 shades are #1 which looks like a light neutral champagne with golden shimmer, and #3 which looks like a milk chocolate with golden shimmer.) These have a creamy texture that applies somewhat dry (doesn’t feel tacky like some cream blushes) and the soft, natural color lasts all day! $16
The Honey Bronze Shimmer Lip Balm isn’t new, but I decide to get it for reasons stated above… I am totally on the fence about this product. You definitely have to have a light hand with this, maybe only a dab or 2 to brighten up lips. Any more and you start to get that 90’s frosted lip look…not good. Also, it’s a bit on the dry side (maybe because of the shimmer?) and I might have liked it more if it was slightly glossier/wet. However, I tried dabbing some on my lids and it gave a surprisingly pleasant brightening effect and really made my lashes pop! $12
Wearing The Body Shop Honey Bronze Lip Balm on my lips (and a dab on my lids) and the Honey Bronze Highlighting Dome Shade #2 on my cheeks.
The other new Honey Bronze items they released (that I didn’t get) are:
– Honey Bronze Tinted Face Gel which promises to “leave skin with a sun-kissed bronze matte tan that looks utterly natural, never orange or streaky.” I have to admit, I kind of want to try it! $20 for 1 oz.
– Honey Bronze Tinted Leg Mist “is a transparent gel mist which helps to create tanned-looking legs in seconds. It gives an instant, even sun-kissed bronzed glow whilst leaving your legs feeling refreshed and moisturized. No oil, no shimmer, no transfer – just a natural looking matte tan!” $25 for 3.3 oz and it ships for free.
