The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette

The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette 24 1200x900The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes palette has always fascinated me. The idea of cute little shadow blocks, that can be picked and shifted from the palette was intriguing. Sowhen The Body Shop is having upto 50 % off, I decided to pick it up.

Price of Shimmer Cubes is Rs 1595

There are 4 shimmer cubes. Shades are Think Pink, Live Lilac, Go Violet & Tint it pinkThe Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette 1200x900

Packaging 

These shimmer cubes are packed inside a cubical see through plastic case. Each cube has been packed separately inside the box/ palette. I found the packaging very cute but fragile, cubes can fall out and break.The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette 24 Lily cole collection 1200x900Texture

The formula is soft and creamy. Application was easy with minimal fall outs. Shimmers don’t feel gritty.The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette lili cole collection review 1200x900Pigmentation

Pigmentation is an issue with these shimmer cube palettes. The shades are sheer and you have to keep layering them to get the desired intensity. The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette lili cole collection review and swatches 1200x900These shimmer cubes can be excellent choice for those who want sheer wash of color on their lids. You can wear any one shade all over lids and there wouldn’t be need of retouching. These last 8+ hours.

What I liked

  1. The fact that these cubes have been packed separately. One can take out their favorite shade and carry around in their bags. However you should be careful since the lid comes off easily.
  2. Shades can be mixed and matched to create number of looks.
  3. Each cube is packed with product and even after using it thrice I am not able to make a dent. I guess these will last me forever.

What could have been improved

  1. Pigmentation could have been a bit better.
  2. Price. It find these too expensive if compared to the quality.

I tried my hands and created a look. The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette lili cole collection review and look 1200x1228The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Palette lili cole collection review and eotd 1200x1006

Overall Thoughts

I liked the formula and quantity of the shimmer cubes palette, however pigmentation could have been better. Palette has a mix of light and dark shades so you can mix and create different looks. Girls who love sheer shades would love this but if you are more of a matte or  looking for daytime wearable shades you may not like it.
