Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette #19

Claims - Four new colours create a gentle contrast of hazy shades and vibrant blues, greens and lilacs! Perfect for turning day time make-up into a stunning party look!

Shimmer Cubes palette #19 comes from the Nature's Color Collection Spring makeup range! Retails for 16 pounds! I believe the shades are Sea Shell, Emerald Sea, Hushed Orchid and Sparkling Sky! Pearlized and wearable! Dry for sheer application! Wet for intense pigmentation! I believe these are the baked versions! Correct me if I am wrong!

The packaging is nothing dramatic, but more realistic in approach! Comes in a transparent box; seperate upper half and lower half! The eye shadow cubes are detachable! You can carry whatever shade you like as each cube comes with a seperate lid! Great for hand bag and travel! You get a hell lotta product for each cube, which is nearly 4 grams!

Tip - Apply to the eyelid using eyeshadow brush for overall cover and using a dampened slanted brush for a line of defined colour on both the lower and upper lash line!

Dry swatches!

Key Ingredients - Marula oil is a very effective moisturiser that also helps condition the skin over time! Sesame seed oil helps leave the skin supple and soft! Aloe vera contains numerous vitamins, minerals, enzymes, amino acids, natural sugars and is believed to be anti-inflammatory!

  1. I think I need to take a look at them. :)

  2. i like it how each cube is independent

  3. I really liked these when I chked them out at the store.. but they had this brightly colored one and I didn't like the colors.. I sorta prefer browns shades coz at least then i can wear them to office.. otherwise they just sit & lay eggs in my kit :D

    But I really liked the packaging & the concept of these shades.
