The Body Shop - Golden Brown Eye Palette

A girl can never have TOO many neutrals hence I am not even going to apologize for yet another neutral eye shadow post. I know you guys love it... albeit secretly.

You remember my post about The Body Shop's Smoke & Sparkle collection right? Well, I have an eye shadow palette from their range and unlike Topshop's recent gimicky collection, the shades in this palette actually reflect the name.

There will be two palette's in the range and the one I have is Golden Brown. First of all, take a deep breath and appreciate the lush packaging. The gold and black casing although chunky, is a stunner in reality.

The mix of colours has to be given some credit here. There's a gorgeous chocolatey-taupe, a shimmery pinky silver, a matte coffee brown and a clear glittery cream base. 

It's always a plus to have a tiny little liner and a brush duo that fits in nice and snug so you don't have to carry much around when on the go. 

The velvety texture and the undetectable, airbrushed finish is actually what separates the palette from the others in my vanity and makes it stand out.

The clear glitter cream base can actually be worn on its own or as a primer to layer on the other shades. It's slightly dry and powdery texture makes it stay put on the lid and avoids creasing. The glitter in this is so pretty and even shows through the shadows layered on top, giving the look dimension but in a sophisticated manner.

I created two looks to demonstrate the versatility of the palette and more importantly the finish and blendability of the shadows.

I kept a strong outer crease in the first look and opted for a daytime Kristen Stewert-esque smoky eye in the second one.

This is a part of Body Shop's Winter Collection and should be available to purchase in stores and online after it releases in a month.

Press sample. I'll purchase the other palette when it releases though!

@Shivani - I agree! I previously found their eye shadows quite boring and the packaging dull.

I didn't see the need to buy another neutral palette after the Naked palette, but this seems like such a great compact for taking with you on the move - I will definitely consider this if it's £15 or less. That was very specific of me wasn't it :oP x
