Hola chicas! The Body Shop has new single eyeshadows out called Colour Crush and I’m gonna swatch two of them for you, Blackcurrant Affair and Sweet Pea. Both swatches were made on bare skin with no moisturizer/primer/base underneath as always, so that you can see the colors on their own. Also, keep in mind that the swatches are packed with product, so that you can see what the colors really look like, and you can definitely sheer them out to get a softer look. Let’s take a look at the swatches (click on the pic for a bit larger view) :
Blackcurrant Affair is a quite dark purple with slight fuchsia shimmer. You can use it either as regular eyeshadow on your eyelids or as eyeliner, since it’s pretty dark. The colour you see in the picture above is true to life and I tried to capture it as best as I could, purples are SO hard to photograph.
Sweet Pea is a quite light green, especially when you blend it out, and it has a slight metallic finish. Don’t let the “metallic” word scare you though, it’s really discreet and not in your face, as you can see in the picture above. It's more of a sheen than a metallic finish actually.
What do you think of the colors? Would you wear them and if so combined with what? Let me know in the comments below! Since I’m obsessed with purples I’m gonna wear the purple eyeshadow more, especially to smoke out my black eyeliners and to make them softer.
