The Body Shop Shimmer Cube Palette | Chocolate Box


Aside from avidly writing about they're views on animal testing as part of an Ethics module in University (an assignment that my lecturer still recalled me writing in third year), The Body Shop is a brand that I have paid little attention to since freshers year. But with the welcome arrival of a 3 Step Chocolate Box Eye Kit, in particular the Chocolate Box Shimmer Cube Palette, its safe to say that my love affair with the brand has well and truly been rekindled.

As a teen I remember The Body Shop being 'the place' to go for makeup, and the beautiful shimmer cubes, more specifically the vibrant lilac palette (oh Sophie) were always the object of my affections. So I am thrilled to finally have this palette in my possession. First things first, lets talk packaging. The shadows are individually contained (each with a lid) within practical, sturdy, acrylic cubes, making it an ideal palette for travelling. To top it off, unlike most shadows, the cubes are seriously deep, meaning that they will last a lifetime.

The shadows themselves are beautiful. This particular palette contains four complimentary shades, Honeycomb (a beautiful shimmery gold), Dark Chocolate (a deep shimmery brown), Marshmallow (a subtle pinky nude) and Choco Chip (a subtle shimmery taupe). Seriously pigmented and long lasting all four shades are ideal for both night & day time looks.

I received the Chocolate Box Shimmer Cube as part of a Limited Edition Christmas Kit, however I am happy to say that the palette can be purchased separately from The Body Shop for £16.
Have you tried any of The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes?
