The Body Shop Eyeshadow Palettes
[productsample] There are lots of new launches coming from The Body Shop over the next few weeks, but I’m starting with these eyeshadow palettes because I think they’re the best we’ve ever seen from the brand.
As you can see, there is also a brand new mascara, looking pretty in pink with green fronds. There are two earthy tone based palettes – above is Own Your Naturals but the one I’ve put properly through its a paces is called Paint In Colour, below.
Each palette has 12 shades, chopping and changing between matte and metallic throughout. I love the design that puts raised parts to the colours (although I have to confess I’m not entirely sure if it creates a pattern (a leaf maybe) overall – I keep looking!).
In terms of quality – I have no complaints at all other than I found the matte shades very slightly droppy. The formulas are full of colour, smooth in the application, beautifully blendable and verstatile: a definite step up to anything we’ve seen before.
If you love neutral tones a la Bobbi Brown, I feel that The Body Shop has paid close attention to that brand’s colour palettes and then spiced it up with some exciting metallics and shots of shimmer.
Happy Go Lash (such a great name) looks all pretty but is really very punchy in terms of depth of blackness and a decent covering in one coat. Impressive! Despite the brush being a bit chunky for my own personal liking, the formula glides onto lashes well giving a bit of uplift and definitely a thickening effect.
This is Row 1 from Paint In Colour. I think you can see how smooth the shades are – and the depth of colour surprised me, but it’s all there.
And.. the bottom row. I have to say that I don’t have a price or even a launch date at this stage but I hope they’ve made plenty because they’re lovely, suit-all palettes that feel as though they’ve had care and attention lavished on them at the product development end. I’ll update when I have more details but do let me know what you think.
