THE BODY SHOP SHIMMER CUBE IN WARM REVIEW & SWATCHHi guys,

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.

Thank you for stopping by lovelies! Don’t forget to leave a comment to say Hi! :)

  1. I need these in my life!!! I love these colors and it is awesome that you can take them in and out of the cube. I do agree that they are cute!! :) You did a good job applying the eyeshadow, need to give yourself more credit. Looking gorgeous as always xo

  2. Wow, these are such gorgeous colors. I’m glad you included the photos of you wearing the shadows because they look even prettier on your eyelids than they do in their containers. I’m trying not to buy any new beauty products right now, but these are definitely on the list for when I start letting myself spend. ;)

  3. What beautiful colours! And cute packaging too. My best friend back in high school had one of these quads and loved it. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi, I just bought this from a friend and wow aren’t they pretty :) I love how you can take single colours out and take them with you rather than the whole quad. I think the shades are very versatile and would suit a lot of colourings too.
    I love the photo where you’ve stacked them up ;)

    • Thank you Amy, yes I agree I love that you can take the cubes out separately. Love this colour palette but may try the pink one next :)
