This was supposed to be one of my mystery items because despite spending hours on line trying to find something out about it, when I came to photograph it, I discovered the date on the back. Yes, it was a head-desk moment but also has saved me from any further looking.
I think perhaps Chase Aston was the chief make-up artist at the time. Rather disappointingly, for something so pretty, it’s called Blue 01!
It’s the only thing that I’ve kept from past Body Shop collections and I honestly can’t remember anything about it – what other products were in the collection or if there were any other colours. So, I’m hoping it might ring a few bells with someone.
The little flowers are two-tone silver and mid-green with a frosty light green behind them – I’m sure they’re over-sprays and the whole effect looks a bit Japanese influenced to me. I’ve seen only one of these on a re-sale site and it was sold. I’m intrigued to know whether there were any more colours. It’s in great condition for a 14 year old product.

I remember a friend buying this when shopping for our summer holiday – I’m sure there was also a darker blue option of this shadow.
Oh, dark blue sounds lovely.
It looks vaguely familiar… there might have been a blusher? highlighter? bronzer? with a similar imprint – it did look so pretty and feminine! I’m also surprised it was made in the US, I wonder if that’s still the case? Anyway I love the Body Shop make-up and think it’s vastly underrated – reasonably priced too, especially with frequent promotions.
