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?

Love the lip and cheek tint. Not much use for lips but it is the BEST subtle glow with a hint of shimmer on the cheeks. Been using it for years. The make up wedge sponges are the best too.

Hair Pieces or synthetic hair fibers, which is generally less expensive. A Top Hair Piece or Wiglet can be the ideal cost effective option for women or young ladies with thinning hair or hair loss to have a full volume natural looking head of hair.
