The Body Shop Lily Cole Shimmer Cubes Palette 24

Hello dearies!

Here's a quick post regarding the palette I got from an event by The Body Shop a couple of months ago. This is actually my favorite among the items in the goodie bag! :P

The Body Shop Lily Cole Shimmer Cubes Palette 24

It is my favorite because eyeshadows are my most-loved makeup in general. That is because that's where you can exercise your creativity in the highest extent when it comes to doing makeup.

Details at the back of the palette.

I actually have a shimmer cube palette from TBS too but of different shades. This palette definitely has a big amount of product. I haven't even reached the half of my old palette even if I use it a lot.

The packaging a bit different from the old palette though since the cover is connected to the palette. But it still has the same transparent casing and same size.

The shades included are all blendable together composing of pinks and purples.

BTW, I think I've ruined the formation in this picture. It's not in the order that is written at the back. Sorry.
Shades are (clockwise from upper left corner) : Think Pink, Tint in Pink, Live Lilac, and Go Violet

They are very pigmented, huh?

I use them all together to create this look:

The resident MUA in The Body Shop MOA, Morning, liked what I did with my eyeshadow. I already posted an FOTD post regarding this look a few weeks ago. To see the rest of my makeup that day, click here.

Back to the palette, it is pigmented, the shades are shimmery, and I do believe it is wearable. Some might say that the plum shades can be aging but I think it's actually on the way you apply it on your lids.

Staying power is so-so. I recommend you use a good eyeshadow primer for this because mine creases over time around 4 hours because of my oily lids so having a trusty primer is necessary for me when I use this palette.

I don't really know the price of this but I will update this post when I get the chance to drop by a TBS store. :)

Have you tried this palette yet? What do you think about it?
