Christmas @ The Body Shop

Tonight we had the wonderful opportunity to attend the launch of The Body Shop's Christmas collection with the always wonderful and charming Karim Sattar (That's him with us!). Greeted with mulled wine the scent of potpourri in the air, we got to mingle with old friends and meet new ones before Karim talked us through the make-up trends for the new season. We'll have a post up in the next few days with some of the best tips we gleaned from Karim!

A smokey eye is the call of the season and, whether your choice is a sultry warm brown or a charcoal black, The Body Shop have you covered with their 4-Step Smokey Eyes palettes. There are also cute lipgloss tree decorations which I really want to get as stocking stuffers for certain people!  For those of you who love hand creams, body butters, body scrubs and lip balms, the three signature scents for Christmas 2011 are Candied Ginger, Cranberry Joy and Spiced Vanilla. We each got a beautiful gift basket to take away with us which contains an item from each scent as well as a smokey eye palette so, we'll be sure to report back to you on these once we've had the chance to try them.

For now, however, we'll let the super-Christmassy pictures do the talking!
