The Body Shop Shimmer Cube Palette in Warm -Photos + Swatches

Hi ladies,

I recently visited The Body Shop and I picked up a few things.

The first one was this gorgeous and very practical Shimmer Cube Palette in Warm.


I love Shimmer Cubes!
I think they are such a great value for money.
They are £16 each but as you can see on the photo above you get a lot of product 4 X 4g!
Each shadow will last you a long time.

Also at the moment (only in stores I believe) when you get a Shimmer Cube Palette you get another one half price!
Of course I got another one too. I will post about it soon. I want to try it a bit more first.

This Warm palette is exactly what its name says...warmed toned colours.
I've been using this palette all week now and I created endless combinations. 
I used them on their own or mixed up.

The names of the shadows are
01-Honeycomb 
02-Dark Chocolate
03-Marshmallow
04-Choc Chip

Honeycomb is similar in colour to Woodwinked by Mac
Choc Chip is similar (but nicer in my opinion) to Patina by Mac

Marshmallow is probably my favourite. Yes, very strange but it's the perfect all over the lid colour and it's ideal to apply on the tear duct area for a bit of highlight.

See some swatches:


I think they look a bit frosty on these photos but they are super creamy and buttery.
They apply so easily. I use a 217 look-alike (the one by Boots) and they apply with no problem. They blend straight into your lid and with each other.

I have 3 Shimmer Cubes Palettes in my collection and I love them.
I cannot recommend them enough.
I think £16 for each sounds expensive but when you think how much you get then it's a bargain.

I hope this was useful.

    I love the Body Shop Shimmer Cubes. They're so huge they last forever. These colours actually make me feel a little bit hungry as they remind me of chocolates!

    @Amy: Yes, they are. Love them :) X<br /><br />@Summer Loren: I used to do that for a long time until I bought the first. No it&#39;s the first think I look for when they have new collections. so worth it. X<br /><br />@Guestbook: LOL. And the names...all food-related. X<br /><br />@Ellie: Yep. I&#39;m happy with the purchase :) X<br /><br />@Caitlin: Some things are expensive and not worth it but there a few things that they do well one being the cubes. Try them. X<br /><br />@ The Peach: Yes, they have other dupes as well. Go ans swatch them. X<br /><br />@Hi Rach: Yes do...they are very nice and soft. I&#39;m sure you will like them and they will look fab with your green eyes. X<br /><br />@Ashii: I bet they last ages. If they don&#39;t smell or look funny I guess it&#39;s ok :) X<br /><br />@Emma: I haven&#39;t tried them wet yet! I&#39;ll defo do soon. I&#39;m sure the colours will go even stronger. X

    Came across your blog while I was looking for swatches of the Shimmer Cubes. While those are nice, I love the look of your nail polish more! Can you tell me what it is please?

    @Nazia @ MascaraMagic!: Hi! It was a combo actually. Star Gazer in 509 as base (it&#39;s a grey purple) and on top a coat or two of OPI Significant Other Color. X
