The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Pallete 06 [review+swatches]



I've had this for a while and I absolutely love it, this is the BodyShop Shimmer Cubes Palette in number 06. Its basically a quad with four shimmery eyeshadows. I'll show you all of the four shades and share some swatches! 

What The BodyShop says about it:
Get big, eye-opening results. Rich mix-and-match palettes of  subtle iridescent blendable eye shadows that can be used wet or dry. Crease-resistant and suitable for contact-lens wearers.
Best for: all skin tones
Chocolate brown shades
Iridescent finish
Crease-resistant
Dermatologically tested
Ophthalmologically tested


 Shimmer Cube Palette - Eyes 


Packaging:
A square transparent plastic container that has four smaller plastic squares with their own lids that contain the four different colors.



Top Left HoneyComb, Top Right Dark Chocolate, Bottom Left Marshmallow,
Bottom Right Choc Chip

Review and Swatches:
The four shimmery shades are called Choc Chip[a dusky brown], Dark Chocolate[dark chocolate brown], HoneyComb[golden], Marshmallow[baby pink]. Beautiful colors with nice pigmentation. I apply them with my fingers too sometimes, which indicate the ease of use. The color and shimmer lasts a long time. The blend-ability is good and these do not crease either. Can be used wet or dry, I do both depending on the look or occasion. Two of the colors resemble those in the BeautyUk Baked Eyeshadow Trio that I reviewed earlier. This has a complete range of colors for an eye look, the highlight, the dark crease color as well as two pretty colors for application all over the lid.


HoneyComb
This one below is my most used one, I'm sure you can make out from the condition of this cube. This one brings out a beautiful color when applied with a wet brush.


Marshmallow

Dark Chocolate

Choc Chip

Rating:
4.5/5


Verdict:
I love it, it has a great quality complete range and the colors are super gorgeous.

  13. I was thinking of getting those, but i didn't since i am not sure how well they will look on my too white too pale skin.
    by the way i am not sure if you read my previous comments, but i was interested into the "blogger interviews" you have and was wondering how do you do that.
    should i email you?
    of course you would be ok with me being featured here.
