The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes

The Body Shop shimmer cubes have been around for ages, and I have always wanted some but never got round to buying them. Recently I have had a bit of a blog sale addiction picking up some bargains!! I bought these from a lady called Lisa for £4.50 each these are the old style cube containers but the retail price is £16.00 each so I got a huge bargain.

Each cube has 4 plastic containers inside containing a cube of eyeshadow which you can remove, I don't know how I will ever get through these as the cubes of eyeshadow are HUGE, I have tried to show the depth in the next picture.

Most eyeshadows are less than 0.5cm deep these are a whopping 1.5cm deep (approx). I am soooooo impressed, they are so shimmery and very well pigmented, here is a swatch of each shade.

The thing I like most about these shades is they have so much glitter running through them but the don't look tacky and glittery they shimmer beautifully. They can be used for a daytime looks and gradually built up for an evening look.

What surprised me is for the amount of glitter in these shadows, while I was applying them there was no glitter falling on my face, which I hate when using glitter based shadows.

I read some reviews on The Body Shop website about the Shimmer Cubes and people have said they last forever, one lady has been using hers for 2 years and still has loads left.

I think they are most definitely worth £16.00 but I am glad I got them for a bargain price, I had a quick peek on eBay and some are selling for as low as £6.00!

Have you tried any of The Body Shop makeup?
