AW10: Body Shop Smoke and Fire

body shop smoke and fire

Well, hello there, Body Shop. Don’t you have a lot of very pretty stuff for us this autumn, eh? Above you’re looking at some of the pieces from the August 1st-launching Smoke and Fire collection from the brand.

No longer the place to pop into to merely pick up your Beech lip liner (oh go on, I’ll admit I was addicted too), Dewberry perfume oil and other Products of Yore, over the past couple of years the store’s cosmetic collections have been growing steadily stronger and this seems amazing, based on the photos anyway.

No doubt you want to know what’s what, yes? Head after the cut for close-up shots and prices so.

body shop shadows

There are three eye colours in Peach, Midnight Blue and Velvet Green for €11.95. Crease-resistant and long-lasting the brand says, these also contain Vitamin E and Community Trade marula oil.


Interesting, eh? These cone-shaped yokes are limited edition Kajal eyeliners, and come in Charcoal, Evergreen and Steel for €10.95. Dying to give these a go I must say.

body shop  blushers

Another very strong-looking product, these are the limited edition Autumn Leaves compacts, €22, in Chestnut and Berry. Less bronzer or blush and more designed to add some colour to your face or to illuminate the complexion a little, the advice is “sweep the blended colour across the face, neck and decolletage to give cheeks a natural glow, or use to highlight.”

body shop lipsticks

While I love lipstick generally, in the context of the rest of the line up, these Colourglide lip colours, €10, are definitely the least interesting of the bunch. Still, the shades are wearable, and the formulation contains loads of moisturising goodies like Vitamin E, jojoba and rosehip seed oil, Community Trade marula oil, sesame oil and beeswax.

Right so! What do you think of the collection? Interested in picking anything up?

    Oh my. I’m loving ALL of this. Autumn/Winter are without a doubt my favourite seasons and I just love all the colours, textures and…well…everything about it! And this collection couldn’t sum it up better. LOVE.

  • MariaMac says:

    im not the best with eyeliner so will be looking forward to giving those ones a go!

  • dublinista says:

    I love the look of the green Kajal eyeliner. Beech lipliner – I used that for years!! I’m sure there’s probably still one thrown in the bottom of one of my overflow make up bags!

  • ceci says:

    The eyeliner looks great, only I wonder how you will be able to pare it.

  • Zinne says:

    It’s a pity they don’t have the eyeliner in chocolate- it would go perfectly with that peach eyeshadow.

  • fifibelle says:

    The eye products are beautiful looking, have to say, good point about parng down the Kajal though.

    Used to love going into the BodyShop, loved their lipbalms!Had a good few of the White Musk range of perfumes too

  • ClaireBear says:

    Ah, White Musk and Dewberry! Is there a single Beaut who DIDN’T buy these back in the day?

  • littlesis says:

    Wow! This stuff looks really high-end, I am dying to have a look now :)

  • daiseeboo says:

    I have to say I am not a huge fan of the body shop as I have reacted badly to their products in the past and when I popped in last week to pick up a little pressie for my sis for her hols the service was beyond brutal but I will venture in for that green eyelner, have been looking for something like that for a while as I like green on my eyes but nothing too bright so a subtle line of that would be perfect.

  • Anneml says:

    Love the look of the eyeliner! Are you sure these are Bodyshop??

  • Pola says:

    Sorry to be pesymistic, but how are you going to sharpen the eyeliner?

  • Starchild says:

    Really daiseeboo? That’s terrible! I always get really good service, in the Blanch Bodyshop, anyway! Loads of samples too! I really like the look of that peachy eyeshadow. Hopefully that bronzer doesnt have just spray on glitter coating!

  • Fee says:


    Get a piece of paper. Extend the liner and hold it almost parallel (about a 15 to 20 degree angle) to the paper. Draw on the paper, focusing on making it more pointy.

    I have a Kajal liner pretty much identical to the Steel one above but I’ve only used it about twice. I loved the idea of Kajal liners after seeing a few youtube videos but have to say I was a bit disappointed with the results, may need more practice.

  • Holly says:

    The Kajal eyeliners really remind me of the Sleek Kajal Eyeliners. I have a purple one and love it, so must try these as they’re more accessable to me :)

  • OilSlick says:

    Looking at those eyeliners… I wonder what would happen with them once the point was worn away? Then it would be like smearing a crayola around your eyes!

  • OilSlick says:

    Sorry – just went back up and read Fee’s comment!
    It seems like such a waste, though, to use up all that eyeliner just to sharpen it…
