The Body Shop Honey Line

I just re-discovered The Body Shop via their new Honey themed makeup line. Everything has a faint hint of honey scent with bronze and amber colours..I was immediately drawn in. Like a bee to..honey? Ugh.

Anyway, definitely check it out! I've always been a fan of the Body Shop's makeup and skincare line and will definitely be back for more goodies. They currently have a buy 1 get 1 50% off promotion which helps too.

Products I've tried so far:
Honey Bronze Bronzing Gel for Face - Bronzing 
Honey Bronze Bronzing Gel ($14)
This gel is perfect for the weekend when you don't want to wear foundation but want a glow to your skin. I find it doesn't work that well under foundation. But I haven't tried mixing it in with my foundation which might be a good workaround.

01 Honey Bunch 
Honey Bronze Lip Nectar in 01 Honey Bunch ($13)
This is a sticky, honey scented lip gloss in an beautiful orange colour. I'm a bit disappointed in the texture as the shimmer gives the gloss a gritty feel. Looking beyond that the pigmentation is great and I love the concept. 

A few things I'd like to get!
Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil - Bronzing 
Honey Bronze Shimmering Dry Oil ($22)
Compared to its much more expensive cousin, Nuxe Huile dry oil which is $60 a pop..
Honey Bronze Brilliance Powder ($22)
This is perfect for travel!
01 Bronze
Do you have any Body Shop recommendations?
