I’ve been wanting to review these Body Shop Shimmer cubes since forever ago but I keep getting distracted by other things. Truth is I’m not so savvy when it comes to working with eyeshadow, so you may have noticed my lack of eyeshadow posts…
However this is the most favourite eyeshadow I have ever had the pleasure of owning, so I thought it definitely deserved a mention. The colours are gorgeous and so easy to wear, plus it’s so easy to blend that it helps even the most useless peeps like me apply it with ease.
Let’s also take a moment first to just squeal at the fact that they are so frigging cute! For some reason four little cubes stashed perfectly inside one bigger cube is just too adorable for me.
There are 5 colour variations to choose from and I have the Shimmer Cube in 06 Warm, which is combination of shimmering golds, taupes and browns. Don’t be alarmed by the term “shimmer” though, they will not leave you looking like a glitter disco ball, they actually give you the most subtle but gorgeous iridescent sheen. You can see in my swatches the lovely sheen and finish, but it really doesn’t do it justice at all, they are far prettier in real life.
The shimmer cubes in Warm in particular is very flattering and it’s my favourite neutral eyeshadow, I even prefer it to my Urban Decay Naked Palette…. Yep I said it!
The texture of these cubes is so easy to work with too, each cube is super soft and buttery and just blends into each other effortlessly. As I said earlier, I really am rubbish when it comes to eyeshadow application but the formulas of these cubes just makes it that much easier to get a natural finish.
I bought this last year during the body shop sale and I managed to get it for £8 instead of it’s normal RRP of £16 (They have an offer on at the moment, so if you fancy taking a peak.)
At £16 you may not consider this a budget buy, but they honestly last you forever because don’t forget that each cube is just solid eyeshadow. I’ve had mine for a year and have barely skimmed the surface so far.
