~The Body Shop Matte Eye Shadows Review!~

Hey everyone!

This review is on The Body Shop matte eye shadows.

I purchased these two products for $0.90 each, during their huge sale online. Great deal!!

The packaging is very small yet durable, and has not scratched on me yet! I have dropped these little eye shadows on my carpet, and they did not break! Granted I may have just been lucky at the time!

The lid has a clear window, which helps you know instantly what color you have in your hand. The downside to the packaging is that the name of the shade is not listed on the bottom, instead you view only numbers such as: 09 or 12. This is not the end of the world, but I always love reading the names of products, and somehow I have yet to remember the numbers of the shades.

As far as the products themselves, I find that these matte eye shadows last on my lids all day, and do not crease. The shades that I purchased are very neutral shades, and compliment any outfit I wear!

These eye shadows are light weight, and very fine in texture. I have been using the more skin toned shade to cover up the circles under my eyes, and it really does the job! An added bonus to the skin tone shade is that it helps to blend out any harsh lines, left by other eye shadows. I use the darker brown shade all over my lid.


~Great smooth texture

~Does not crease

~Last for hours

~Packaging is durable and small

~Can blend out easily


~The original price is rather expensive

~No shade name on the bottom of the packaging

~Does not pack onto a brush well (I just use my fingers)

Overall, I rate this product at 3.75 out of 5 sugarcubes. I think this is a great eye shadow to keep with you, and would be great to travel with. I would repurchase this, but only on sale!



Note: I purchased this product with my own money. I am not associated with the company listed above, nor are they paying me to review their product. As always, this is my honest opinion! :)
