Lve these little cubes. Never had a problem with sheerness, blendibility and are easy to apply. I do suggest using an eye primer which will enhance the colour and effect of the shadows. The packaging is cute and the amount given is generous. I personally would not use them for daily wear since there is a lot of glitter but i dont find this is a problem.

While the colors are pretty they are way too sheer!
I like to use them on top of black e/s in smoky looks to add some shimmer but I don't think they're pigmented enough to even use as a brow bone highlight!

I have four of these 06, 10, 11 & 12. If I should rate them it would be in this order: 12, 06, 10 & 11. 11 have very light colors wich is not very well pigmented.

These are nice, sheer, glimmery cubes of color. I really enjoy all the different color combinations The Body Shop has made available. The application of these colors goes on beautifully too. Although I love the look of the four cubes inside their container, and it seems to last forever - my only gripe is that they aren't the best for when you travel. I still give this product five lippies anyhow. Great product! Luv it!

I have a lot of gripes with these eyeshadows. They aren't very finely milled or pigmented and crease after about six hours of wear. I bought it because it was on sale and the packaging is super cute, but that's the only thing good about it. Definitely will never purchase another one.

While I do think that some of the colours are nice, I would not repurchase. The lasting power is extremely poor. Pretty much all of the shades are too glittery or shimmery without enough actual colour pigment. Also, the cheap plastic packaging sucks.

I wasn't satisfied by this product.
Just tooooo much glitter, rather than shimmer.
Difficult to apply, don't blend well.

Good selection of colours. Nothing exceptional here though, I find the staying power is quite poor and dry or wet will barely last through 8 hours of the day. The quad has lasted me four years and I still have two cubes to go!

I have the 06 and 07 palettes of these. I've had the 06 for about 18 months, I use it nearly every day, and I've barely made a dint in it.
I find the colours versatile and easy to blend, you can do all sorts of effects with them, and you can use them for a barely there effect, or use a damp brush for more dramatic colours with longer staying power.
I find that I don't really use other shadows anymore, I can do daytime or night-time effects with these 8 colours and achieve a professional effect in about 2 minutes without even using a brush. If you were to choose one palette to start with though, I'd recommend the 06.

I have two of these (palettes 6 and 7). I think they're fantastic, subtle, versatile and gorgeous. Other reviewers have complained about the cubes not blending well, but I have not had this problem. I apply them with brushes, rather than my fingers and I find that the shades in palette 07, can be blended to make a nice, subtle smoky eye. They are not highly pigmented, so if you're looking for a really dramatic look, these aren't for you. They're on the pricey side, but you get a lot of product and they last forever. I took off one lippy because the packaging is a little unpractical. The lids tend to be loose-fitting, so you can't just throw them in your makeup bag without putting some tape or a rubber band on them.
