~The Body Shop - Nature's Minerals Eye Shadow Review~

Hey everyone!

I purchased these Nature's Minerals Eye Shadows when The Body Shop was having their HUGE sale online!

I got a great deal on these shadows! They were 3 for $10! Normally each would have been $13, so this was a fantastic deal!

These eye shadows are highly pigmented with a large amount of shimmer to them (which I adore!). I find that they apply easily with either a brush or your fingers.

The packaging is very durable, and is easy to keep clean (which is a bonus to me). The packaging is very small, which allows you to put more than one shade into your makeup bag.

It takes a couple good taps on the bottom to get the product to pass through the shifter. I find this to be good for me, because it allows me not to waste product by having too much and it spilling out when I open the lid.

The colors themselves are vibrant and shimmery, and last for hours without any touch-ups needed. I find that the shimmer/glitter can wear away after a couples hours (but that does not bother me).

Colors from top to bottom are:

~Radiant Graphite

~Pink Opal

~Platinum Shimmer

I find that these colors blend well with each other, and will compliment most of the other colors I have in my collection.


~Small, durable packaging

~Easy to keep packaging (lid) clean

~Beautiful colors

~Highly pigmented

~Color will stay vibrant for hours


~Shimmer will wear off within a couple hours

~The shifter allows for a limited amount of product to pass through (this could be seen as a positive as stated before)

Overall, I rate these products at 4.75 out of 5 sugarcubes! I would repurchase these items; however, it would be when The Body Shop had another online sale!



Note: I purchased these items with my own money. I am not associated with The Body Shop, nor are they paying me to review their products. As always, this is my honest opinion! :)
