Shade Adjusting Drops From The Body Shop.

Sunday, 19 February 2017

A little while ago I did a review on the Jackie Oates Colour Supplement from Lush. I wasn't that impressed with the product and ever since, my hunt for a magical potion that lightens foundation continued. Until I came across The Body Shop's take on the shade adjusting product. Spoiler, I bloody love it!

So, as you can see it is basically just a white foundation that you mix with your foundation if it is slightly too dark for you. 1 drop is meant to lighten your foundation by 1/2 a shade. I usually add 2 drops, to my Revlon Colour Stay foundation (Ivory). It's a great product for pale peoples (like myself) to help lighten up orangey drug store foundations. Lets be honest, it is really hard to find a pale foundation which doesn't oxidate. Plus if you are not willing to splash out on a £30+ higher end foundation this is a great alternative to add to the bases you already have.

These drops are made from a concentration of white and pink pigments which helps neutralise yellowness while lightening. They also have darkening drops, these help guys and gals who find their foundations too light or ashy. A mixture of black and red pigments helps darken while keeping the natural depth. 

The only problem I have with the product is the packaging. I really liked the idea of the little pipette but it just doesn't pick up the lightening product. No matter how many time you squeeze the top or shake it, it just doesn't really grap anything. That is the one and only fault I have with the product. 
(Update: I have just read a few reviews and a lot of people have said the same about the packaging, don't let that put you off though!)

Have you ever tried this product? Or anything similar?

  1. I have a few foundations I'd definitely like to lighten so this sounds well worth it, glad they work so well!

  2. This sounds so good - I wasn't sure how well it would work! I have so many foundations that are slightly too dark for me x

    1. I was kind of skeptical at first but it works a treat!x

  3. This sounds perfect, because it means you can still use your summer foundations in the winter!
