The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes 07

Here are more Shimmer cubes, this time palette 07.  This was the first shimmer cubes I bought at TBS and I think the colours are quite unique together.

Again, the colours are obviously shimmery-cubes of shadow.

The silver in my opinion is the base colour and suits the three other shades well.  Its great for highlighting and adding to the corner of your eyes.  The brown and pink are beautiful shimmers which add a flush of colour over the lids.  The purple is quite hard to get a good true colour swatch when used dry, I think this shade is quite hard to blend as well.

The colours show their full potential when used wet.  You can see my previous post on the shimmer cubes – HERE.  So you just wet your brush, create a paste with the cube and then apply to skin! Easyyy peasy! They really do look beautiful when used as a paste.

What do you think of these shades guys?  I am always a bit confused with this palette as I don’t see how to use the brown and purple together, but I guess its just a selection of different colours in one set that you can use separately.  And again, if you have a few of the palettes you can swap the cubes around to create your own.  The shadows last well, they dry easily without creasing when used wet and with a primer.  Each cube will last you a lifetime, which is good for the £16 price tag.

I hope everyone is having a good week so far.  My first prize winner on my giveaway received her prize package earlier this week and you can see her post about it HERE! Go check out her blog, I love it!

  1. Yeah, I know what you mean. They're all lovely shades but I'm not sure they work that well together. But, like you say you can swap them around. Do you have the new one- I think it's 19? If so, are the colours wearable?
