The Body Shop launch their new concept store in Leeds

The Body Shop in Leeds City Centre (on Briggate) has been getting a bit of a makeover. It’s bigger, prettier and basically cooler. So, to celebrate, they invited a few of us to an evening of makeovers and fun.

I wanted to give their matte lip liquid a try, as I’m a big fan of liquid lipsticks. One of the gals said it was a great product, stayed on really well and faded evenly when it did come off.

Maybe the product doesn’t like my lips, because although I loved it at first…I found that within a few hours the product had bled a bit, most had come off and definitely hadn’t faded evenly. So that one really isn’t for me.

One Body Shop product that I *am* loving at the moment that I just wanted to mention is their bronzing drops. Little “drops of sun” that can go into your moisturiser or foundation. I love this product, so good.


After makeovers, I had a good look around at the products The Body Shop were showcasing. I love love love their beauty advent calendars at the moment, they have a few to choose from…so great for all budget ranges.

The one below has my all-time favourite face oil, Oils of Life (see separate review here), is in there…along with a few others I’ve been dying to try.

One of the fab features of the new Leeds concept store is that you can personalise jars of body butter. I love this idea!

The Body Shop kindly gave us vouchers to make our own and I had some argan oil body butter made for my friend Sarah…


Thank you Ally ❤❤❤ #bodyshop #pinkflamingo

…and lovely Lucy also won some prizes, including a pampering sesh at the new store:

The Body Shop were lovely enough to send us all away with a beauty advent calendar…

    Looks like an awesome event Ally, gutted I couldn’t make it! I want to try the drops of sun. The liquid lipstick sounded so good at first – shame it doesn’t last!

    That was a fun event! I’ve bought quite a lot of bodyshop goodies as Christmas presents. I like the liquid lip but really do wish that it lasted longer! Ps. I forgot about those photobooth pictures and it they made me giggle!
