This is a limited edition eyeliner that was available in the UK during Christmas. There’s a probability that it may be released this December too. This was a gift from my cousin and I got the green 1 while my sis got silver (I can do the swatch of the silver 1 sometime if anyone is interested)

Three striking shades of liquid eyeliner, with glitter particles to add definition to the eyes, and complete the winter look. Contains Community Trade aloe vera. Available in three wild striking tints.

It’s the kinda shade u get when you take a Christmas tree with all its decoration and paraphernalia and put it in a blender! Okay…it’s actually a very pretty olive green shade. It has light green n peacock blue shimmer particles. I took several pics but none of them do justice to the actual shade. It’s a li’l brighter and greener than it appears.
Packaging & Applicator:
It comes in a cylindrical tube that’s slightly bigger than my index finger but slightly smaller than Lakme 9to5 Intense Shine Eyeliner and slightly bigger than a centipede and slighty smaller than an earthworm and…Okay, okay, u get the picture, right? The lid is the shade of gunmetal and adds oomph to the packaging. Since it’s a screw top lid there’s no question of leakage. Very travel-friendly packaging and will fit into the smallest of purses. The brush is thin and long. The bristles thankfully stick together and make application super easy.
My experience with Body Shop Sparkle Eyeliner Ocean green
When I first swatched the product, all hopes came crashing down like the twin towers on 9/11 (sorry…bad comparison)! uh: The color looked so fab in the tube but on application it’s very VERY sheer…almost liquidy. I drew 1 line over another again and again (as though I wuz painting a wall) but there was no chance of the color showing. In fact, the brush strokes became very visible. So I lined my upper lash line with a matte black eye pencil and then applied this over that. Ooh yaay! The color showed in just one swipe. Two swipes and it looked perfect! It’s very shimmery and the black under it lends extra glam. This also helps the color to last longer (am not sure how long it lasts when worn alone). Usually, eye products with shimmer make my eyes sting…but this doesn’t. So double Yaay! :clap-n-jump:
Here’s how it looks when worn alone (I can’t believe I did this!!!…pls don’t be scared.). You can see the brush strokes and patches where there’s no color at all. I’ve swiped the product atleast 4 to 5 times here:
This is how it looks when worn over black eyepencil:
What I like about TBS Limited Edition Ocean Green Eyeliner:
- Sturdy, attractive and travel-friendly packaging
- Shade is very unique and festive coz of the blue and green shimmer particles
- Application is easy
- No discernible fragrance
- Lasts for atleast 5 hours or more when worn over black
- Easy to remove
- Didn’t irritate my eyes
What I don’t like about TBS Limited Edition Ocean Green Eyeliner:
- Pigmentation is very poor
- Contains parabens
- Availability is an issue
Will I re-purchase? Nope. Am sure there are better pigmented greens out there waiting to be picked (No, am not talking bout spinach!!).
Does anyone know a dupe for this?
