The Body Shop Eye Definer shades in Black and French Navy

Before I start I just want to say a quick thank you to everyone who left a lovely comment on the last blog post! They really made me feel a lot better and it's nice to see people understand about family pets!

Now onto the blog post...

I couldn't resist picking up the August 2011 issue of InStyle magazine for the freebie Body Shop eye definer pencils. In my book, you can never have too many eye-liners and seeing as my current Seophora liner is ultra tiny, it's about time I had a new one!

Other issues of the mag come with a freebie Mascara but I didn't really fancy that. Instead I opted for the eye-liners, of which you get two! One in traditional Black and the other in French Navy.

For freebies, these aren't too bad, and for £8 on the Body Shop website, it's still quite a bargain. I don't usually use a blue eye liner but I think I could get used to it.

Both look nice and dark when swatched on my hand but once applied, they lose a little of their boldness. On the waterline, they get wiped away after a few blinks but as a thin line on the eye-lid, they do look pretty good.

Many eye-liners tend to get stuck in the bottom lashes and you can definitely see that in the pics. Although they aren't as bold on the water line, I don't think they would come off completely, though you may want to re-apply through out the day!

Would you believe I'm not wearing any mascara? It certainly looks like it in the last pic, weird. I would have to say I'm a little disappointed that the liners wipe off so easily. I've never tried Body Shop make-up so I'm not sure how good it is but it really annoys me when a liner doesn't stay on. The blue seems better than the black so I might make use of this one a bit more!

Just a quick shameless plug before I go. If you fancy joining Cherry Pie over on Facebook, that'd be grand! Once I reach 25 'fans' I may just hold a little Facebook only giveaway!


  1. Too bad they're not lasting that much, cause they look really good. I have a blue one myself and I really like the color, but it's a different brand.
    Hope you enjoy them, though :)

  2. i would buy that mag for the eye pencils too! now following you on FB!

    It's greatly appreciated!

  3. might have to pick this up :) the blue really compliments your eyes :) oh and i liked your face book!x

  4. Nice colour! I picked up this magazine when someone else finished it and left it on a train, so no freebie for me but a not bad read for free!

  5. The both look really pretty on you. I would definitely buy the magazine for the free eye pencils.

    P.S. We are having a giveaway on our blog. Check it out and I hope you enter.

  6. I yet have to find an eyeliner that is truly waterproof when I use it on my waterline x=

  7. I never manage to get my eyeliner to stay on very well, especially in the summer when I get hayfever, I don't even bother with mascara. I might have to get this magazine though as I could do with some new eyeliner

  8. it's a shame about them not lasting. i've tried a few bodyshop cosmetics and from what I can tell its very mixed. some of their things are amazing while others are just a waste of money really!! x

  9. Have heard great things baout these products, thanks for sharing.

    Helen, X

  10. Ha, I got the mascara and I must say, it's really rather good! Sally x

  11. They do really good eyeliners, I got a silvery grey one from a magazine last year and I love it, when it runs out I'll definitely be buying it again! I'm so sorry about your little cat too xx

  12. i always find pencil liners smudge too much :( have you tried gel ones? xx

  13. I'm definitely gonna get this, i've been looking for a navy eyeliner everywhere! thanks for the review xx

  14. You have really pretty eyes. Its hard to find a good eye liner. These look good. :)
