Got this as a gift from a friend and love it. Palette #06 has four flattering, warm-toned natural (browns family) shades that can be pulled out individually. The pigmentation is great on the darker shades and decent on the lighter ones. I thought, before opening, that these were going to be loose shadows and a total mess. However, they are compact like little sugar cubes, making them fun and totally convenient. The shadow is the SOFTEST in texture I've ever used (and I mean that as a compliment) yet thankfully there is little-to-no fallout. Goes on evenly, blends easily and then stays put. Despite having shimmer in the name, these aren't overwhelmingly glittery - the shimmer is very subtle (and quite pretty).
This is a great palette and I'm very pleased by the shades and the quality. Recommend!
I got this when it was on sale a looong time ago, and I'm still not even half way through. They're kinda expensive but they last you a lifetime. I use the taupe colour on a daily basis, it's just gorgeous. Not much of a fan of the orange/golden and rose colour though. They apply quite evenly and stay on all day long.
I have recently bought this product and can safely say I am in love. I am a huge lover of smokey eyes and this shimmer cube is amazing for achieving that. Although it was a little pricey, I love the colours, they are incredibly pigmented and you can literally do just about any kind of look with them, weather you want to go light or dark and sultry this will help you to achieve that. I also love the packaging, because on first glancing you would think that you won't get very much product for how much you are paying, but I can see these lasting me forever, because you get a lot in one pot and you don't need much product to make a really full on impact. I also really like how they are separated into little indivdual pots each, because they get less messy and don't end up mixing into each other like other palettes I own. The one thing I would say is that I'm not a huge fan of the orangey/gold colour, I think its the honeycomb one, just purely because I'm not a lover of that shade of eyeshadow, it looks okay when put into the inner corner of my eye, but I would say it is the wrong colour for my skin tone to be used all over the eye. However the other three I completely love. Would definitely recommend and buy again.
This is hands down my FAVOURITE make up item of ALL TIME.
I've had my palette for YEARS, use it every time I apply make up (2 - 4 times a week) and still have so much product left. I honestly can't speak highly enough of the quality of these shadows. These are PERFECT for an every day neutral look, and can easily be used for a statement nighttime look. These colours suit EVERYONE! Here they are..
Honeycomb - the orangey copper colour. Amazing on blue eyes. So pigmented. Use it all over the lid and smoke it out, as it's not a dark colour it's perfectly appropriate for day time.
Marshmallow - the lightest champagney, peachy colour. I use this not only to highlight my brow bones but also to highlight my cheek bones and cupid's bow. For an understated look with a little shimmer I'll apply this all over my lid and use the next colour, Choc Chip, in my socket line for subtle definition.
Choc chip - beautiful silvery, muted brown.
Dark chocolate - deep, rich chocolatey brown. My FAVOURITE! It's SO pigmented and looks great on everyone! I've used this for filling in my brows for years.
WET YOUR BRUSH SLIGHTLY AND WATCH THE PIGMENT INTENSIFY!
The only thing I don't like about this product is that the plastic packaging is easily breakable.
Please note: all the shades have shimmer in them, so if you're looking for a matte palette this is not for you. But if you are... go buy this. NOW.
These cubes are really something! Really easy to apply and blend, and the lasting power is really good, this looks great the entire day! Also, you get so much product, I've had mine for years now. Also I think this is the only palette I have that I actually use every color, they are so natural and chic and goes with everything! I can't seem to find anything bad to say about this palette, except that the small lids breaks quite easily, but I did lose them to the floor so I guess that ones on me.
LOVE. This eye shadow has been my favorite for many years, and I am going to explain why! The colours are amazing, perfect for wear in the day or night. Also, you can switch from a day look to a night look so easily! These are simple to apply, and very easy to blend. The colours last a long time, even when applied without any primer or base. The absolute only downside of this eye shadow is the packaging that it comes in. It looks cute in the store, but is kinda painful once you get them home. Not so great for when you are in a rush, packaging and lids all over the place! All in all though it was one of the best purchases I ever made. The shadow also stays in a cube shape when the container is tipped upside down and the cube falls out- awesome for messier make up appliers!
This was an MUA purchase! I tried it on at TBS and all the colours looked really good on my NC 43ish skin tone...so I had to have it! The packaging looks cute but is quite a pain to deal with in a hurry...if only it was a single palette! The 4 colours are awesome and shimmery enuf to wear both in the day and at night...they are all really pigmented and long lasting (with or without UDPP, IMO). I read that these pigments can be used as nailpolish and mixed with lipgloss too...will update as soon as I try it! :D For girls who love shimmer, get this!
I love this quad! I match NC 40 in MAC and Iíve been reaching for it every day since I bought it over a month ago. I literally have to remind myself that I have other palettes and shadows. Hereís why:
- The four colours (pale champagne, light gold, taupe and burnt-bronze) all have a slight shimmer when dry and a solid metallic sheen when applied wet. This makes the quad great for a frosty-brown day look and for dramatic shiny eyes in the evening.
- Every colour in here goes well and blends silkily with every other and yet is pretty enough to use on its own. I usually do a plain taupe lid; bronze lids with gold in the centre; and champagne lids with bronze in the corners for the office. I also did a bronze smoky for the night with wet bronze blending upwards into taupe and champagne. You have to try them wet!
- Thereís very little fallout with these colours, unless youíre doing a lot of blending. But if you are piling on the colour, there might be some creasing by the end of the day Ė itís nothing that canít be solved with primer. The UDPP is enough.
- The cubes themselves are excellent value for money. Thereís tons of product in there Ė Iíve barely made a dent in ANY of them.
- Itís such clever packaging! Each cube has its own case and lid so you can carry them separately or pick from other shimmer cube quads and build the set you need for the day. Iíve taken off the cube lids, but kept them all closed in the outer box so I donít have to open each little cube in the mornings.
- My least favourite colour is the champagne Ė itís a nice highlighter but too light and cool for the lids. Still itís a more useful ďquad dudĒ than other palettes Iíve seen.
- A lot of reviewers have recommended using the cubes wet as an eyeliner Ė it hasnít worked well for me since they donít turn out as rich as Iís like. But then I only care for black and navy liners.
- I really wish that TBS made a coral shimmer cube set. It would make my life complete.
EDIT: I just applied the bronze cube wet, with a flat shadow brush, on my nails and sealed it with colourless topcoat. It works as nail colour too. Woohoo!
I got this yesterday at my local TBS for 50% off. Seeing that this retails for $22 I was glad I called my store and asked if they had this in stock, on the phone they told me they were having a promotion, donate $5 (by buying a makeup bag) and get any makeup product you put into that bag 50% off! I didn't waste any time and rushed over the same afternoon. And let me tell you I love love love love love this product! The colors are beautiful and the quality is awesome, it does have some fallout, but it's minimal if you remember to tap off the excess. I have just seriously started using eye shadows a couple of months ago and I'm obsessed with neutrals! I love the subtle natural looks or smokey evening eyes that you can come up with using this palette! I am in love with the shimmer cubes! Some people don't like the packaging, but it's actually relatively sturdy, as sturdy as plastic can be.. When you buy this new there are two tape strips on two sides of the big lid, I left one of them on and open it that way instead of lifting the lid straight up, I find it secure that way and might just tape that side (once it wears out) shut and open it from the opposite side. I'll definitely repurchase once I run out of this which will be hmm... maybe a couple of years <3 continued >>
I love this product! It's a bit expensive but you really do get A LOT of product with this. I love how versatile the colors are, great for everyday, but with a sweep or two of the darker colors, you can instantly transform the eye from day to night. I got this on 20% discount so the purchase was definitely worth it. The texture is really good and it surprised me that I didn't have any fallout despite it looking too glittery (well, it's not). It stayed on very long and didn't crease and blended really well. Haven't tried applying it wet though, many say that it'll last longer. But all in all an amazing product!
PS Actually gave up my my everyday MAC eyeshadows for this baby!
