The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation

*PR sample

The Body Shop has always been a favourite of mine for all things bath and body but I have never thought to venture into their cosmetics range. This week I have been testing out the new Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation, a light weight, pillow soft base for the skin. My shade is 'Malawi Beach 03' which is a perfect match for my summer tan. Overall there are five shades to choose from but admittedly this is quite limited. I found this foundation gives sheer coverage which is perfect if you want a minimal make up look, although it is probably buildable to your preference. The consistency doesn't weigh down the skin and it feels barely there.

The only thing I wasn't too keen on was the applicator, I much prefer to use a brush when it comes to foundation. I like to buff in my base rather than pat it on, just to ensure an even complexion. Needless to say I'm quite impressed with this product and I will definitely consider more of the make up pieces The Body Shop as to offer.
