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…
It was so much fun to spend time with some of my usual squad of fave Leeds Bloggers…
…and there was a bit of competitive spirit going on with a Twitter photo competition, which Ellie won (she DID get on a zebra, fair play to her!)
(can I just take a moment to fangirl over Ellie’s cheekbones?! That gal looks like a bloody model…so gorgeous)
…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…
It’s been my only beauty advent calendar this year, so much appreciated.
Thanks for a really fun event Body Shop and I’ll be back into store again soon!
You can follow the store on Instagram and definitely check out the VIP pamper treatment. The bloggers that had it said it was fab.
