I've been an avid fan of the Body Shop best sellers' Shimmer Cubes for quite some time.
Up until now, there were only 2 palettes in their permanent range (which I have reviewed in an old post here); and each year, the Body Shop used to bring out a LE shimmer cubes palette to jazz things up- but if you read my blog long enough, you'll know that I stay away from anything LE! Naturally, I missed all of those pretty eyeshadow palettes.
So you can imagine my squeal of excitement when I found out that the Body Shop added 4 new shimmer cubes to their permanent makeup range!!!
I only got the #20 palette so far but I'm planning to get them all ;)
Look at these gorgeous shades... Ahhh I can't stop admiring them!
So happy for my purchase!!!
From left to right, we have: Indigo Blue (HG alert, this colour was the reason I got this palette in the first place!), Starlight Silver (beautiful all-over-the-lid colour), Midnight Black (a shimmery dark grey, actually) and Snow White (perfect to highlight the inner corner of the eye).
It's also advised to use them wet;
the colour impact you get is beyond gorgeous!
Compared to the old Shimmer Cubes, there are a few differences:
* the packaging has slightly changed, see the round corners?
* the new formulation is much more smooth to the touch
* there's 4x3.5=14 gr of product in there, whereas the old Shimmer Cubes
had 4x4=16 gr. But honestly, it's unnoticeable- both new and old cubes
look as if they have the same volume :/
As for the price, they cost 20E- and before you think that it's a lot, lemme just say that you're paying for 4 eyeshadows that you'll never use up. NEVER. Also, one has to give credit to the greek branch of the Body Shop for keeping the old price tag- if this new launch took place 2 years ago, they would have totally added a fiver!
What do you girls think of the new Shimmer Cubes?
Would you consider getting any for Christmas?
