Shade and Light

Long time no blog! I hate getting out of a blogging routine and these last few weeks have been hectic to say the least. Unfortunately my work, life balance has knocked my blogging schedule out of sync.
But I'm back today with a review on two very exciting little products that every girl (or guy) needs in their make up bag pronto.

If you're as pale as a ghost like me, and even the lightest foundation shades seem too dark, then you're going to love these. I own a lot of high street foundations, that are great, but during the winter months they were starting to make me look like I was wearing a mask. I was reaching for my MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW10 everyday, which I love, but is too heavy to be wearing day in/ day out.

My makeup routine was changed forever when I discovered The Body Shop's Shade Adjusting Drops (£10 each) ...

These little bottles are heaven sent. They're essentially concentrated foundations in white and chocolate brown. They come with a pipette for precise distribution and just one drop is designed to make your foundation half a shade lighter, or darker. They have a thick consistency for a foundation but they seem to mix with foundations, high street or high end effortlessly.

The Lightening Drops have a slightly pink undertone that stops your usual foundation from developing a white cast. I have been adding a drop onto the back of my hand and mixing it with two pumps of my regular foundations on a daily basis. I find that it doesn't interfere with the coverage or texture of my foundations, it just helps to adjust the shade perfectly. 

I'm dying to try these out as a liquid contour instead of my usual powders. They blend in so well with liquid foundations, I bet they would work awesomely - I'll keep you updated :)

Have you tried these from The Body Shop yet? I'd love to know your thoughts on them... xoxo
