While The Body Shop Fresh Sorbet Blush looks like my ideal blush (I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them), they’re actually hugely disappointing. I love creme and sorbet style blushers for their blendability and natural look (and, of course, the fact that they’re not powder, which instantly dries my skin) but it’s a big oops for these.
If you look at the first swatch, the clue is there. The texture is almost impossible to blend because it moves – it does not uniformly blend, but instead travels wherever you push it or try to blend it. It also reacted badly with my base and formed little squirls (my base is a bareMinerals product) which meant the whole lot had to come off. There’s something really wrong with this formula – I tried finger application and brush application and the same problem emerges with both methods, so I can’t recommend it in any shape or form. The only plus, if you somehow have the blending skills of a goddess, is that it leaves a fresh looking tint on the cheeks. In the main picture, you can also see the new Body Shop Instamatte, which is another story altogether and I’ll blog that one separately.
The Body Shop Fresh Sorbet Blush is £12 and available now.
