I was at The Body Shop and there were so many great things that I wanted to try!! Especially their makeup and some of the Vitamin E Body Care line. I picked up these little treats since they were BOGO 50% off, and they were incredibly gorgeous little eyeshadows! I always walked passed The Body Shop in terms of makeup, but am SO glad I went in and tried some of their things out! I feel a new obsession coming on. lol
These are the two eyeshadows I got, one is an Eye Shimmer in Emerald 08, and the other is an Eye Color in 44 Golden Meadow. I had been looking for colors like these for a while now, and no one ever really got it quite right for me, until now!! Like I said, these are Buy One Get One 50% off, $9 each, and they are also doing free shipping with some other promotions of their website if you want to check it out!
The website says, “A range of beautifully smooth, long-lasting, crease-resistant eye shadows that offer intense color coverage, while helping to moisturize the skin. Available in a variety of pearl and matte shades and finishes.” They also contain Marula Oil, Lanolin, and Vitamin E.
The packaging is very cute with the reflective silver and small size. This is great for me since I am running out of room in my makeup storage!! They are smaller than an average eyeshadow so keep that in mind. The packaging is all plastic, and not quite a circular shape, more oblong. I like their little logo in the center and that you can see the color through the top.
The formula is AMAZING on these. You definitely can tell they used oils in these as they are incredibly tacky yet smooth. They have amazing pigmentation and stay on the lids without any primer! The shimmery effect of the green is the perfect shade I had been looking for, it looks amazing on med/warm skin tones! The eye shimmer in emerald is really unique. It’s a very light white with iridescent green shimmers and highlights. You can use this alone for an amazing glow, or use it on top of other eyeshadows to transform the eye color. This one feels a little less tacky, but the staying power is JUST as great. I really recommend these eyeshadows!
