This is the first post on the single eyeshadows from the Body Shop, where I'm reviewing all the neutral colours from the range. A second post is going to be uploaded today (hopefully) with all the greens, blues and purples!
Please click on the pictures to make them larger ;)
From left to right: #13-Vanilla Cream, #15- Pebble Grey, #29- Pink
#13- Vanilla Cream: a matte off-white, a colour essential for any make-up bag! I only use it on my brow bone to clean up any mess I've done with the blending of darker colours on the lid.
#15- Pebble Grey: a shimmery mushroom grey colour, perfect as an inner-corner highlight teamed with other cool-toned eyeshadows.
#29- Pink: a matte light pink colour. It's so easy to wear, perfect for daytime! Also looks great with a brown eyeshadow on the crease.
From left to right: #41- Golden Peach, #5- Burnished Brown, #8- Golden Paprika
#41- Golden Peach: part of the new velvety formulation, the name says it all- a golden peach! It looks lovely when swatched but I haven't found yet a flattering way to wear it... To see a better view of the colour in the pan, please look at the first photo of this post :)
#5- Burnished Brown: a satin golden brown, probably similar to Mac's Woodwinked. Very pretty colour, looks at its best combined with lots of bronzer or a tanned face!
#8- Golden Paprika: a warm, shimmery bronze. Would look absolutely fantastic on blue eyes, sadly it doesn't work on me- although it looks ok when I apply it only on the lower lashline. Last year I dropped the pan and the powder smashed in pieces- I made an attempt to press it myself, see how I did it here ;)
From left to right: #4- Granite, #7- Conker, #32- Chocolate, #39- Soft Black
#4- Granite: my absolute FAVOURITE of all the Body Shop eyeshadows!!! It is a matte mid-tone brown; I wear it alone on the lid, as a crease colour or on the lower lashline as it makes a beautiful "natural shadow" effect. But it has been discontinued, damn it!!! Could the Body Shop AT LEAST give to us customers a last-minute warning on the products that are going to be discontinued? Please???
#7- Conker: a part metallic, part duo-chrome red-toned light brown. Very wearable, would complement all eye colours. I mostly combine it with lilacs and purples.
#32- Chocolate: another favourite of mine, it's a dark cool-toned brown with silver shimmer and the new velvety formulation. It looks so pretty over a black base, it's my go-to choice for a brown smokey eye!
#39- Soft Black: as the title suggests, it is a matte black colour- not the blackest in the market but still good for beginners.
Oh, one more thing I almost forgot: all eyeshadows from the Body Shop fit into Mac palettes (they're actually 0.5 or 1 mm thinner in diameter) and the pans are very easily removed from the plastic container.
Watch out for part 2- I'm writing is asap ;)
Happy blogging and reading and commenting to everyone!
