And of course, as my luck typically goes, a discontinued product from The Body Shop. Like many with large-ish stashes, I tend to rotate my products and often forget about ones not currently in rotation, like these gems. I'm afraid this post isn't particularly helpful for most of you though you might still be able to find these on swapping sites or Ebay. I don't recall when I bought these, or how much they cost. I don't know when they were discontinued. But The Body Shop gods brought back another product I loved so I can hope they do it again, right?
These blushes are silicone based, so they glide over the skin and have great staying power. A small little dab is quite enough for a natural look (you'll see in the swatches below just how pigmented these guys are). I find the formula keeps them for sinking into pores or lines on the face (or dry patches). What can I say? I love them.
ingredients: propylene glycol dicaprylate/dicaprate, isododecane, polymethyl methacrylate, dextrin palmitate, silica, myristyl lactate, cyclomethicone, disteardimonium, hectorite...
uh, I just discovered that I smeared off some of the ingredient list, oops (yes, I'm typing this all out by hand and yes the writing is teeny tiny)! Anyway, you get the idea. There's also mica, a few dyes, talc, propylparaben, barium sulfate, titanium dioxide, marula oil and a few other things.
Either way, as you can see, I'm not terribly sensitive to ingredients and I don't read prior to application. Um, and these are the bomb! Why do bad things always happen to good people? I deserve good things, like awesome blush that probably has a reasonable price tag! Right? Of course Right (Fiddler reference)!
