Available from November 2010, the catwalk-inspired Winter Trend Collection will be adored by style-queens everywhere. Look out for the limited edition Sparkler, a boudoir-chic atomizer that dusts the face and body with fairytale sparkle. With a range of dazzling choices to suit all complexions, this must-have collection is perfect to give to ultra-glam friends as a Christmas gift. Or choose to treat yourself so you can dazzle at all the season’s parties.
The Winter Trend Collection features the highest quality naturally derived ingredients, such as marula oil from Namibia, cocoa butter from Ghana and organic virgin coconut oil from Samoa, which are sourced through The Body Shop unique Community Fair Trade programme. By choosing to bring a little sparkle into your life this winter, you can bring joy to farmers and their families in marginalised communities around the world.
Sparkler in Boudoir Pink (MRP Rs. 1395)
Make sparks fly! This season’s lust-have, the limited edition Sparkler is a gorgeous boudoir style bottle full of iridescent sparkle-dust. Its elegant atomizer ingeniously delivers a completely even veil of sparkle to the skin, whilst the clever combination of different sized pearls and glitters creates a sophisticated multi-dimensional shimmer. Simply point the nozzle anywhere on the face or body to release a burst of pearls and glitter so you can sparkle from head to toe.
Chase Aston, international make-up artist, says, “The Sparkler is an absolute make-up must-have to get the party started! Lightly spray over the face, décolletage, shoulders and neck for a flirty, sensual shimmer effect.”
Top tip: For an ultra-precise application, lightly spray the Sparkler onto a powder puff, then press along the cheekbones to highlight. Chase Aston, International Make-Up Artist & Spokesperson.
Eye Palettes (MRP Rs. 1595)
Fashion-forward fashionistas will adore the new Eye Palettes from the Winter Trend Make-up Collection. Perfect for creating smouldering party eyes, these two limited edition palettes in 01 Twilight and 02 Midnight each contain four pressed powder eyeshadows plus a shimmering highlighter that can be applied to eyes, cheekbones and brow bones.
With a unique design and metallic-look stripe across the pack, these Winter Palettes are beautifully chic. And by flipping open the palette you’ll discover a handy mirror and applicator, so you can perfectly apply the eyeshadow and highlighter anytime, anywhere.
Each eyeshadow contains skin-caring Community Fair Trade marula oil from Namibia, which helps to condition the skin over time, and each glamorous palette is created from recycled paper.
Commenting on the Eye Palettes, Chase Aston says, “These fabulous colour palettes with satin smooth and creamy textures are exciting, enticing and easy to use. Take runway to real-life by creating sexy, smoky eyes – winter’s trend de jour!”
Stardust – Glitter Pots (MRP Rs. 545)
Stardust isn’t just the preserve of fairies. Give your party look a touch of fabulous glitter with a Stardust Glitter Pot. Choose from feminine pink or glamorous gold particles and gently apply to your face and body with The Body Shop Eye Shadow Brush or your fingertips to sparkle the night away.
Chase Aston says, “These fabulous and cute party pots of intensive shimmer instantly explode with an intense wash of colour. Use to shape, shade and highlight the eyes or, if you dare, anywhere else on the body
Fun to use, just press over the lids to turn tired day make-up into a fabulous glamorous night look, instantly!”
Top Tip: For a precise and long lasting application, first smooth the creamy highlighter from the Eye Palettes onto the lids. Then take The Body Shop Smudger Brush, sprinkle glitter onto the flat side of the brush, and press onto lids.
Top Tip: Sweep an eyeshadow brush across the cream highlighter from the Eye Palettes, dip into a Stardust Glitter Pot, then smooth onto the inner corners of eyes for a dramatic eye-effect.
Top Tip: For a precise, smudge proof, product fall out-free application when applying Stardust onto the body, first spritz the area with The Body Shop Vitamin E Face Mist. Whilst skin is still moist, sprinkle the glitter pot dust onto a powder puff and firmly press onto any area you would like to highlight.

Eye Liner (MRP Rs. 795)
Make your eyes sparkle this winter by framing them with smouldering Eye Liner. Choose limited edition 04 Starlight for a subtle silver glitter effect, or go for dramatic 01 Black. Each shade has a pen-style applicator, which allows you to run the applicator along the lash line to define and enhance your eyes. The Eye Liner features Community Fair Trade marula oil from Namibia, a remarkable oil that helps to care for and condition skin over time.
Chase Aston says, “Winter’s smoky eyes would not be complete without a bold slick of liquid eye-liner. Re-create the classic retro winged eye using the black shade, or add a twist to both your day and night look by sweeping the shimmering silver liner acrossslids to add contrast and drama.”
Commenting on the Love Gloss, Chase Aston says, “These gorgeous shades are the perfect foil for the Winter Eye Palettes – whilst eyes are intensive and succulent, lips are barely there with just a hint of shimmer and sparkle.”
Shade: 01 Natural Lip Gloss
Shade: 19 Pink Sparkle Lip Gloss
Top Tip: Smooth Love Gloss over a bare lip for a sheer barely there wash of colour, or layer over Lip & Cheek Stain or your favourite Colourglide Lip Colour shade for fabulous party lip looks. Chase Aston, International Make-Up Artist & Spokesperson.
Nail Colour (MRP Rs. 345)
Enjoy twinkling fingers and toes with a choice of two glittery nail colours. Create a wow effect with dramatic black nail polish flecked with starry silver. Or for a more feminine sparkle, choose the new pink and pearly shade.
Chase comments, “Fresh and flirty or dark and mysterious, these two fabulous nail shades evoke these feelings and more. These are absolute make-up must-haves to accompany the Winter 2010 Colour Palette.”
Top Tip: Add drama by customising your nail colour. Whilst the varnish is still wet, sprinkle a little Stardust onto nails and allow to dry for a Diva-licious manicure! Chase Aston, International Make-Up Artist & Spokesperson.
