Today I will be reviewing and swatching a gift I received from Jo for my birthday. It is the Shimmer Cubes palette in the shade 07 which contains the colours ruby, dusted silver, argyle pink and rich bronze. I have never really considered buying this before but was really excited to receive as the colours look beautiful. The shimmer cube palettes are available on the Body Shop website for £16. They have lots of different shades.
As you can see there is a variety of beautiful shades and I was particularly excited by the Silver shade as I needed one for a wedding I'll be going to this week. You would be surprised how hard it is to get a decent pigmented silver that doesn't look grey or purple on application. Through trial and error I have acquired too many. I was really hoping it would be pigmented!
I wasn't disappointed! This is applied dry so I assume it would be even more vibrant applied wet. I applied the silver shimmer on my lids and must say other than some fallout (to be expected with the name shimmer cubes) I was very impressed.
What I also love is that you can take each one out so as I only need the silver one this week, I have taken that out to put in my travel make up bag. Nifty eh?
I'm glad Jo got me this for my birthday as I probably wouldn't have picked it up myself thinking it would only be shimmery without much pigmentation. Also the price would be another issue that would stop me purchasing it so thanks Jo! It is a very welcome addition to my collection.
Till next time...Toodles! :)
