The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops

 Finding the perfect foundation shade can be tricky, I'm guilty of having a draw full of foundations that are either too light or too dark for me. The Body Shop have the answer to adjusting our foundation shades to match our skin tones perfectly. The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops help turn an almost there shade into the perfect one for you, they're specifically designed to lighten and darken foundation without changing the formula of the foundation at all. Both lightening and darkening drops come in small glass jar with a pipette which is super convenient. If you're quite fair like me you are very familiar with trying to find a foundation that isn't too dark or orange, well these little drops are magical and now an essential addition to my makeup collection. The formula is quite thick so a little honestly goes such a long way, I simply use the tiniest amount to make my foundation at least 1/2 a shade lighter. I absolutely love these drops for numerous reasons as well as making my foundation lighter or darker. They do not at all affect the consistency of the foundation in any way which is absolutely great. The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops are exactly what I have been looking, these little gems are super handy and very affordable.
 The Lightening Drops are designed for those with light to medium skin tones, if you find your foundation looks a little orange or dark then this will work perfectly for you. The lightening Drops are concentrated with white and pink pigments, they help to neutralise yellowness while lightening. I transformed my foundation to my perfect shade in just one drop. I love the silky texture, they're not watery at all and they blend perfectly with my current liquid foundation. The pipette gives you great control for adding as little or as much as you like. The Darkening Drops are designed for those with medium to dark skin tones, if you find your foundation looking too light or slightly ashy then this will work perfectly for you. The Darkening Drops are concentrated with black and red pigments which help darken the foundation while keeping the natural depth. The Darkening Drops will be super handy if you have recently been on holiday and caught a tan, I personally see myself using the darkening drops in the Summer once I've caught a bit of a tan, these will save me going out and buying my favourite £32 foundation just for the sake of a couple of weeks. One drop of the Darkening Drops will adjust your foundation to at least 1/2 shade darker. The Darkening Drops can also be used as a contouring product, I simply dap a tiny amount on the back of my hand and then using an angled brush I will blend the product out, it creates a lovely natural contour shade. I love that it's super lightweight on the skin and blends in like a dream. I highly recommend checking The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops, you can purchase The Body Shop Shade Adjusting Drops from www.thebodyshop.co.uk for £10.

  1. I like the concept of these however I typically have a few foundations on the go in various shades so I tend to mix them together to alter them if I need to. I imagine the lightening drops would be good for those who struggle to find really pale foundations though.
