Help to stop cosmetic testing on animals with the Make Over The World campaign


the body shop make over the world campaign

To highlight their work in protecting animals, The Body Shop and the RSPCA have come together in a unique collaboration called Makeover The World.

Despite thinking animal testing is a thing of the past, thousands of animals worldwide still suffer in the name of beauty. Whilst animal testing is now prohibited in the European Union, many well known cosmetic companies continue to test on animals outside of the EU to sell in other parts of the world or in those countries that require mandatory animal testing.

Following the EU sales ban which stops products tested on animals outside the EU being sold on our shelves, countries like Israel, India and Brazil have already looking into improved practices and legislation.

If you’re one of the 7 out of 10 people who want a end to animal testing join The Body Shop in their campaign to Makeover the World by asking the top 10 global cosmetic companies to stop needless animal cruelty.

One unique part of the Make Over The World campaign involved The Body Shop reaching out and Testing on the Blogger. When I was approached to take part I loved the idea and thought it was a fantastic way of raising awareness. I was sent a fantastic bundle of The Body Shop makeup to test and wasted no time in creating the perfect cruelty free makeover.

The Body Shop Colour Crush lipstick

Infused with a rich moisture this gorgeous lipstick gives a high impact colour. Available in 29 shades the lipstick offers real variety and shades to suit all whether you prefer nude lips to pillar box red. Colour Crush is a vivid crimson red that smells amazing and glides on with ease. I was disappointed by the lack of colour transfer when applied and felt it ended up giving the results of a lip balm or lip gloss.

The Body Shop Define and Lengthen Mascara

Say goodbye to short lashes with The Body Shop Define and Lengthen mascara. The product defines lashes and helps to make them longer with a smudge resistant glossy formula. The results are fairly average for a high street mascara and whilst my lashes were defined I didn’t feel it added much in the way of length.

The Body Shop Shimmer Waves

Boost your complexion with five gorgeous shimmering shades for your face and cheeks. Whilst the product is a little expensive it has a multitude of uses and it can be used as a blusher, bronzer and even eyeshadow. The powder is heavily pigmented and whilst I didn’t feel it added a lot of shimmer when on it’s still a really useful addition to your makeup bag.

The Body Shop Colour Crush Eyeshadow

These intensely pigmented eye shadows have a pearlescent or matte effect based on the colour with a silky soft texture. They can be used wet or dry and are great for blending layers of colour. Available in 36 shades there’s a eyeshadow for everyone occasion whether you’re chilling with your friends or you’re heading out on the town. Oh, Honey is a shimmery light gold shade that looks great with blue eyes and Head in The Sky is a deep cloud blue. Unfortunately the shades didn’t add much colour when applied and I was more then a little surprised at this considering the price of them.
