PUMPKINS, FALLING LEAVES, AND TRICK-OR-TREATING, OH MY!
There’s just so much to love about this spooktacular time of year. And, let’s not forget about candy, bonfires, and dressing up. The frightfully festive season is back and to celebrate all things Halloween we’ve launched our special edition Vanilla Pumpkin body care range.
EVER WONDER WHY PUMPKINS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH HALLOWEEN?
The celebration of the trusty jack-o-lantern is inspired by the Irish Festival Samhain, which marked the transition from the sunny summer season to the dark nights of winter. Candles inside pumpkins provided a guiding light to those travelling along dark paths against the eerie spirits of the eve.
SPICE THINGS UP
Inspired by fresh-baked goodies, our special edition Vanilla Pumpkin range features a delightful blend of autumnal flavours. It has a quintessential pumpkin fragrance, vanilla from Madagascar, and hints of tonka bean, hazelnut, and maple syrup.
This delicious collection is also 100% VEGETARIAN and two products are even 100% VEGAN – talk about guilt-free indulgence!
“Our sense of smell is closely tied to our ability to access memories…even some of our earliest. Science has revealed that the powers of vanilla are shown to make more good memories than bad. Plus, research has demonstrated that the smell of vanilla reduces stress and anxiety and helps makes us more calm.”
Jennifer Hirsch, Beauty Botanist for The Body Shop

From bursting stars to flashy bubbles, leap into a superhero state of mind with our transforming guises. It’s easy as BANG, POP, and POW to recreate Ciara O’Shea’s wow-worthy looks with our Halloween make-up must-haves.
Using the 2-in-1 Smoky Gel Liner, contour the outline of your face and trace the lines of your neck and collarbone.
Outline the shape of your small stars or balloons with the 2-in-1 Smoky Gel Liner, then fill in the star shapes using the Eye Definerin Gold and Pink and the balloon shapes with the Eye Colour Stick in Barbosa Emerald or Texas Topaz.
3. STARRY EYES
Using the 2-in-1 Smoky Gel Liner, create spike shapes along the brow line and under the lower-lash line, then outline the crease line. For the left eye, use the same Gel Liner to draw a starburst shape. Apply and blend the Texas Topaz Eye Colour Stick across the eyelids to fill in the outlines and use the White Matte Kajal to fill in the outer starburst shape.
or BALLOON EYES
Outline the balloon shape using the 2-in-1 Smoky Gel Liner, then fill in some of the edges with the White Matte Kajal. Repeat with smaller balloon shapes on the opposite eyebrow then fill your balloons using the Eye Colour Sticks in Texas Topaz and Barbosa Emerald, as well as the Gold and Pink and Eye Colour Sticks.
Trace your bubble or starburst shape with the 2-in-1 Smoky Gel Liner and fill in using the Matte Lip Liquid in Sydney Amaryllis for the bubble, or Goa Magnolia for the starburst. Dab a little White Matte Kajal onto one side of your top lip to give the illusion of light.
“Halloween is the most brilliant time of year! I adore experimenting with colour, make-up, and creating some special effects. That’s what made this Pop Art look so much fun to create, the options are endless.”
