I'm not usually one for peach blushes because I am such fair skin. This product was on sale at The Body Shop though (3 for $10) and so I decided to pick it up.
It's VERY shimmery, a little bit too shimmery for me, but it is very nice. I would use it as an eyeshadow or a highlight rather than a blush. I love the fact that it comes with several colours in one package, so you get a bunch of different dimensions with the swipe of one brush.
EDIT: I have been using this more and more as a blush. I use it with my Hot Brights pink blush from TBS, though, and it gives my skin a healthy sheen. Added another lippie for that!

I love these to bits. It looks fantastic as a lid colour or sparingly used to highlight your face. When I use it as eyeshadow I do a simple, fresh look with MAC Cork e/s in the crease, dark brown liner, and black mascara. Makes green eyes absolutely sparkle. If you're afraid of shimmer I wouldn't recommend this, it is packed with it.

I've heard a lot of good reviews on the Body Shop Shimmer Waves. Being my curious self, I decided to buy one. To be honest, Peach was the only one that caught my eye. It looks goregous in the pan and I couldn't wait to try it out. What I didn't expect was the peachy colors having a silvery tint to them. From different angles, every color looks like silver. I guess it's not a BAD thing but still. The colors are wonderful for highlighting. When they say "Shimmer Waves", they're not lying. The palette is packed with shimmer. If you don't like having a lot of glitter on your face, I would not recommend this product. I never use this as a blush. Instead, I highlight my temples, the bridge of my nose, the inner corners of my eyes, and my browbone with this. It gives me a satisfying glow. Don't use too much though or else your pores will look HUGE. This is quite pigmented (shimmer-wise) and a little goes a long way. I would not repurchase this because there's a LOT of product that could last me for a long time. It's also a bit too expensive for my liking; $22? Two or three of the colors are almost the same.

This is my go-to highlighter! Even better than BB shimmerbrick, it is a peachy, finely milled powder that doesn't look too frosty or white on my cheekbones. It compliments my NC25ish asian skin tone very nicely. :) I highly recommend this for a soft, glowy look...just sweep over cheekbones, down the nose, and around the eyes! It also works well as a highlighter with my eyeshadows.

Received this in a swap and I love it! I love peachy blushers and was having trouble finding a peach highlighter,hubbie bought me BB shimmerbrick in apricot for Christmas which is gorgeous but this is almost as good IMO.It shows up well on my pale skin and looks good as an e/s too.Am well chuffed!

Nice shimmer and works very well as a highlighter - i find myself reaching for it most frequently, even over some of my MAC MSFs. However, it's not as pigmented as i would have liked to use it alone as blush, though this does make it easier when layering over other blushers as it's harder to overdo it. Can be used as eyeshadow as well. I would still repurchase because the shimmer is subtle and really pretty :)

Very nice shimmery effect, however the orange color doesn't really stand out. So The body shop MUA taught me to use anther orange blush before I apply this shimmer wave, and it will give a highlighting effect. It gives me a sheen looking, love it!

i had the shimmerbrick in apricot when i bought this and since then i had not touched the shimmerbrick once. i prefer this as i m not that good with mu technique yet and this product gives me some error margin. why, because it's sheerer and the powder doesnt fly everywhere and it's harder to over apply. my opinion of this product is solely based on my comparison of it with BB shimmerbrick in apricot. it doesnt magnify pores and make me look frosty, just love it! i wonder if i should get the bronze as well. i wont repurchase tho as i hardly use highlighter only on occassions but if u dont have one you should try it!

I don't like to write reviews but when a product is this awesome I must write something. Like all the other reviews, this gives an awesome healthy glow. I also noticed it helped diffuse my stupid forehead lines. But be careful. I put too much of this down the slope of my nose and my mom said she could see it glowing in the movie theater.

This is reeeeeallly pretty. Very good on my PPP (tanned right now) skin. Not just on my cheeks, either- everywhere! It was totally worth every cent, as I look so fresh and healthy when I wear this. I usually wear all the colors as a blush and/or highlighter, swirled together.

I have the bronze shimmerwave which i like and the pink one isint to bad ,and was really really looking forward to this coming out !!! it looked so pretty in the picture and when it arrived (i got it for cost price as i work at TBS)i was soo dissapointed its just plain old silver even if u just try the darkest peach shade on your hand it looks the same ggrrr so sad :(i am warm toned and silver and kind i hate,very dissapointed and def would not repurchase.although having said that a pale cool based girl may love it. EDIT:So i spoke to soon ,i have lately been using this everyday as a highlighter on my cheekbones and down my nose it makes you looks so healthy i really like it

For $16.50, this is a great shimmery powder. I was a little disappointed with this. Super pretty in the pan. Five shimmery shades ranging from pale peaches to deeper peaches. On however, its kinda silvery shimmer. I dont really see much color. I thought it would be warmer and a little more pigmented but its quite light. That being said, it still gives my skin a nice shimmery glow thats not glittery. I am an NC30 light olive complexion and it looked nice. I would repurchase this.

I already have this in Rose and Bronze.I was searching the store the other day because they're on sale now and saw this.I bought it immediately despite the high price (this was not on sale since it's just released).When I tried it for the first time I was hooked by how my cheeks look!It's even better than Rose in my opinion because it might not show up on every skin tone.But Peach is such a lovely color.There's no white highlighter among the five waves in this one.Instead they are all different shades of peach,the darkest one is kind of 'orangy' but when you dab your brush all the other colors blend together and balance it so there's no chance that you get an orange look with this.I love how intensely shimmery this is and the texture is quite amazing too.It'll be a total pleasure to wear this especilly on summer.If you're a shimmer fan like me,and after a sun-kissed,chic,dewy look you should not miss this!
