I picked up a Body shop shimmer cube a few weeks back and promised to do a review. This is the cube and it is in called palette 06
The colours are (top left-right, bottom left -right)
02 Dark Chocolate
They are packaged in little tiny cubes inside, meaning you can carry them individually or as a quad.
They can be used dry, or wet as shown in this swatch;
Left to right, Dark choc0 02, choc chip 04, 01 honeycomb, 03 Marshmallow.
Towards the bottom of the stripe I added a little bit of water. It really makes the colours shine. My photo doesnt quite do it justice. They looks was like liquid metals when wet, and have a really delicate shine when dry. You can use them as a highlighter, base, liner and a shadow. You could probably use them with your normal bronzer too to add a shine!
Verdict: I LOVE this product, and it really makes my blue eyes pop. It is easy to apply and lasts for quite a while. Adding water makes creates several different looks, making it a bargain for the price. When applying I use the lightest colour as a base and then build up using 04 in the corner and crease. For a later night time look I add the darkest colour as a liner. They blend easily and are easy to carry about.
I have seen four of these shimmer cube palettes in the shops, although I believe some are limited edition for the summer. I would really recommend these as an investment product. I have used mine loads and they still look untouched! They are available fromt he body shop online store, or in most stores. The price varies depending on your source, I got mine for around £14.50 (with my 10% discount card) but they retail for around £15-17 for 4 x 4g of product.
The next time I do my eyes for an evening look, I will take a photo and show you how they wear.
Have you tried this product? Can you recommed it?
Don't forget my competition coming soon!!
