This is my honest opinion on why I barely touched or use all the eye and face makeup products from Body Shop.
No, I don’t hate the brand. I actually love their BB cream and lipliner, but majority of the beauty products I’ve tried is just ‘meh’ to me.
When I first started buying makeup I don’t need, Body Shop was one of the few makeup brands available in where I lived. I gradually bought them, starting with the 4-eyeshadow cubes, and then the shimmering waves and so on.
Every time I opened my makeup drawer, I just never picked them up. Their textures are uneven and pigmentation is very, very subtle. Below I listed what I dislike about each product.
02 Matte & Shimmer Cheek colour – It’s a blush/ bronzer/ overall finishing powder. Each one is too small to be applied individually, so what I prefer to do is to swirl everything and swipe it as a bronzer. But, it’s not suitable for my skin. And the sheerness doesn’t add much to my face.
Blush on Bronze – This is a shimmery bronzer. As you can see, it’s a little too orange for my skin, or anyone’s really. And I can’t use it as a blush either as it appears streaky on my skin.
Shimmer Cubes Palette 07 – Its a shimmery eyeshadow cubes. The packaging is travel-friendly in a way that you can bring the shadow individually. However, the texture is chalky and the pigmentation is not impressive.
01 Shimmer Waves – This product is gorgeous in appearance. But again, similar to 02 Matte & Shimmer Cheek Colour, it’s too narrow to use the shade individually and the pigmentation is just not enough for me.
01 Blushing Daisies – I pressed it again as when it fell down, it broke into pieces. Pretty highlight, but when there’s other highlighting products, this becomes pale in comparison.
Overall: Perhaps if they separate the integrated shades into individual packaging, it would make it easier to apply. And it would be great to see re-formulation of the products. Until then, I’m not going to get Body Shop beauty products for a while.
