Hi lovelies! I'm back in Birmingham safe and sound. It's raining, obviously, and I'm stuck inside feeling very tired and a little grumpy :(! So I stopped reading my academic books and thought I'd have a read of your blogs instead. Much more fun.
Today I received my Body Shop order which I enjoyed a 40% off thanks to Body Shop always offering deals to me by email and me falling for their marketing every time. I chose this product as I actually saw someone else's review (I'm really sorry I can't remember who, I have an awful memory) and thought it looked lovely!
Here's what I ordered:
1) Shimmer Cube Palette 06 in Warm - £16.00
2) BB Cream in Light (I was really excited about this, review coming soon) - £12.00
3) Foot pumice, yum - £3.00
4) They sent me a free sample of tea tree oil, yay!
This was meant to come to £31.00 but I got it for £18.60. I love offers.
Top Left colour: Marshmallow
Top Right colour: Honeycomb
Bottom Left: Choc Chip
Bottom Right: Dark Chocolate
(This is making me hungry...)
I used marshmallow as a base all over my eyes after applying eye primer by ELF. I then used honeycomb on top and blended them together with my ELF blending brush. I then used Choc Chip in my crease using the same brush and then used dark chocolate in the outer corner of my eye, top and bottom. I then used black eyeliner from Rimmel and my Yves Saint Laurent Volume Mascara sample that I got from Whats In My Handbag.
Hopefully you can see how it turned out!
I think the colours are lovely and are great for an everyday look. I think my very colour is marshmallow. I find that browns are really good for green eyes as they make them "pop".
I don't think £16.00 is a bad price as there is a lot of product there and the colour is lovely and pigmented. As I got mine for £9.60 it's an absolute bargain considering the quality.
Have you ever used the shimmer cube palettes? Did you like them?
