The Body Shop - Lily Cole Shimmer Cubes Palette 24- Review, Swatches, Photos

Article By Tejinder

Hi everyone
What’s up?? Hope you had a great weekend. Today I came up with detail review of TBS Lily Cole shimmer cubes palette 24. I picked up this cube last week only as part of the Body shop sale. This is very fantastic and cute palette which contains four shimmer cubes .The shades of these cubes are Think Pink, Live Lilac, Go Violet and Tint it Pink which are not very pigmented and need two or three swipes to build up a good colour. All colours blend very easily and stayed longer if use a primer. Tint It Pink and Live Lilac work very well together as base colours. I like Think Pink and Go Violet for the outer V or for the crease. All 4 shades have a metallic finish and have some tiny shimmer particles in it.

 According to the Picture the order of the colour ;

1. Live Lilac
2. Tint Pink
3. Think Pink
4. Go Violet

Description of Colours; Live Lilac is the pale lavender. Tint Pink is the pale pink cube. Think Pink is the reddish brown colour and Go Violet is the very dark plum brown cube .To intensify these colours always use a damp eye shadow brush on these shimmer cubes. The cubes are very small and cute and have a little lid too. The qualities of these shadows are pretty good, with the two lighter shades you do have to build it up a little to make them visible especially Live Lilac and Tint Pink. My favourite combo is Tint in Pink in the inner corner or in the base and highlight with the Think Pink in the outer V of my eye and in the same manner I used live lilac and Go Violet. I experienced a bit of messy fall out but it’s easy to clean up. 

Packaging: The Packaging is one of the impressive part of these cubes and has the Lily Cole signature on it. Inside one big transparent box, there is 4 little container of eye shadow and each has a separate lids. You can takeout each individual cube and just travel with that or put it in your handbag. Each cube has a little lid too. I think the individual containers and lids are there to prevent them to make a mess when you open the box. The cubes are very soft to touch and cannot imagine myself ever finishing a whole cube of shadow.

Staying Power: staying Power is pretty good. There isn’t a huge amount of fade towards the end of the day but it’s definitely worth wearing a primer underneath to help them stay on a little longer. These are perfect colours for summer.

Texture: These shimmer cubes are perfect if you like a soft, purple/pink eye look. The texture is nice and smooth, which makes them easy to apply and blend and can be worn wet or dry

Price: £16
