The Body Shop Shimmer Eyeshadow
Advantages: Adds intense shimmer for stunning eyes.
Getting ready for a night out a few weeks ago, I dragged out my massive and over indulged make-up bag full of cosmetics as I was looking for something different to wear, as my usual make-up bag is a lot smaller and only contains certain day make-up that is not really suitable for a night out.
When I go out I like to have huge eyes that look like a professional has applied my make-up, so I apply many colours and blend them together to achieve glamorous results.
On this occasion I got out the body shop eye shimmer to compliment the eye shadow I was already wearing.
This is a body shop eye shimmer that comes in the form of a pressed powder eye shadow, it is exactly the same as the body shop matt eye shadows, but it is highly pigmented with glittery bits that blend beautifully with any eye colour.
Once you have applied this to your eyes you will have an intense shimmery finish that reflects the light, this then gives your eyes the appearance that they a much bigger than they are.
I found this eye shadow to be very easy to apply and can be worn over the top of a different eye shadow to enhance the colours, or it can be worn alone for a much softer look.
This is a very light weight powder that never creases and sits into the little wrinkles that we all refuse to admit we have, it also covers well without smudging and smearing off within hours unlike some other brands.
These fantastic shimmer eye shadows come in seven different shades, so you can certainly get a colour to suit you. These shimmers come in pastel and intense shades, suitable for both day and night make-up.
NO3 shimmer pastel pink
NO6 shimmer violet / lilac
NO8 shimmer emerald green
NO2 shimmer gold
NO1 shimmer white / silver
NO4 shimmer orange / copper
No 7 shimmer sea blue
I personally use the shimmer sea blue NO7 with the body shop matt aqua blue eye shadow, it looks stunning with thick black lashes and liquid eye liner.
I would personally apply this with your finger tip or using a blender brush so you can apply it and smudge it into your other eye shadow evenly to give a better finish, which looks professionally applied.
It is recommended that you apply this to you eyelids, brow line, underneath you bottom eye lashes and into the tear duct areas. This will emphasises your eyes to the full extent without you looking like a clown with too much make upon.
Removal is very easy for this product as well, you can either wash it off with soap and water or a conventional make- up remover will also do the job.
Talc, Lanolin Oil, Isostearyl Neopentanoate, Dimethicone, Synthetic Wax, Lauryl Methacrylate/Glycol Dimethacrylate Crosspolymer, Sclerocarya Birrea (Marula) Oil, Copernica Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Tocopheryl Acetate, Methylparaben, Silica, Propylparaben, Mica, Titanium Dioxide.
The three key ingredients here are Marula oil which is used to moisturise and condition the skin helping it to stay soft and supple, Vitamin E is also used to soften and protect the skin and lastly Lanolin oil which is a rich moisturiser that is absorbed easily to give you skin added protection.
These three key ingredients are part of the community trade programs that the body shop support.
These shimmer eye shadows can be purchased from www.bodyshop.co.uk for the bargain price of 8.00 each or at any body shop store for the same price.
These are very small eye shadows, but take my word for it they last ages. I have had mine for over twelve months and I have not even made a dent in to it.
I love this as it really gives my eyes definition and enhances the colour as I have blue eyes, I only apply this to my brow lines and underneath my eye lashes. I always finish it with black liquid eye liner and heavy thick black mascara, so my lashes look like spiders legs.
I can go on a night out, a heavy one at that and come home hours later with my make-up still I tact, I hate it when it is half way down your face before your head even hits the pillow.
The shimmer in this eye shadow is what makes it extra special for me, as it reflects the light really well and looks great for a night out, I don't think I could wear this during the day as it would be too much even though they do pastel shades, I don't think it be suitable for me.
If you fancy glamour puss eyes then give this a whirl, but I would recommend you use a blender brush or something similar to blend colours together, because if you don't blend them well enough they can look very thick and patchy, which is never a good look on any girl.
Summary: easy application, insentive colour and coverage....
