My take on The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette 07:
The packaging is pretty simple. It comes as a transparent cube box with four separate smaller cubes within with each of the eye shadows molded into it. The description is mentioned on the back of the box. The colors in the palette are 01 Ruby, 02 Dusted Silver, 04 Rich Bronze and 03 Argyle Pin.
Color and texture:
01 Ruby is a dark taupe shade with deep purple undertones. The texture is smooth to apply and I generally use it for cut crease makeup. It works best while working on a dark smokey eyes look.
The pigmentation is awesome as seen on the swatch. It goes opaque in a single swipe.
02 Dusted Silver is a sparkly silver shade with lots of minute shimmers. It is frosty in finish and looks beautiful when worn on the brow bone and as an eye shadow as well. It is well pigmented and is also smooth during application. Though it contains a lot of shimmer, it doesn’t have much fallout and has absolutely no creasing.
03 Rich Bronze is a stunning medium golden bronze color and definitely one of my favorites from the palette. It glides softly over my eyelid with no pulling since the texture has a satin feel. All of these shades has a frosty look but can be worn any time of the day as well as at night since the shimmer is not OTT.
04 Argyle Pink is a medium rosy pink in color. This is so girly and pretty that I absolutely love. As seen on the eye swatch, I have used this shade with a damp brush over my eyelid to intensify the color. It too consist minute shimmers but is comfortable when worn with no fallouts.
Pigmentation: As seen on the hand swatch, all of the shades are well pigmented on their own. For deeper color, apply with the help of a damp brush.
Staying power: It last for 5-6 hours or more on me with primer since I have oily eyelids.
