The Body Shop Eyeshadow review and swatches

Guest Post by Tejinder Kaur
Hi gals,
Today I am going to share with you two beautiful eye shades of TBS which I bought during 50% off sale recently. I love The Body Shop cosmetics and the eyeshadows are:
1. Spearmint (shade no 38): It is a pale, shimmery and light mint green
2. Velvet Green (shade 43): It is a deep, dark, blackened forest green.

The packaging is very cute, nice and simple.  It comes in  round silver cute pot and you can see the shade through the top. 
Quantity: 1.4 g
Price: £7.00
Talc (Absorbent/Bulking Agent), Mica (Opacifier), Synthetic Fluorphlogopite (Viscosity Increasing Agent), Lanolin Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Dimethicone (Skin Conditioning Agent), IsostearylNeopentanoate (Emollient), Silica (Absorbent), Cera Carnauba (Stabiliser/Viscosity Modifier), Synthetic Wax (Binder/Emollient), Isopropyl Palmitate (Emollient), EthylhexylPalmitate (Skin Conditioning Agent), SclerocaryaBirrea Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), RicinusCommunis Oil (Emollient), Polymethyl Methacrylate (Emollient), Sorbitan Stearate (Emulsifier), Hydrogenated Caprylyl Olive Esters (Binder), Tocopheryl Acetate (Antioxidant), Cyclopentasiloxane (Skin-Conditioning Agent/Emollient), Zinc Stearate (Binder), Methylparaben (Preservative), Propylparaben (Preservative), Lauroyl Lysine (Skin Conditioning Agent), Tin Oxide (Opacifier), Dimethiconol (Skin/Hair Conditioning Agent). This product also contains marula oil in it, as do many of the cosmetics from The Body Shop.  Marula oil is full of antioxidants and moisturizes and gives smoothness to the eye lids. 
Availability ofshades: 19 shades available.

What product Claims:
Crease-resistant eye shadow that lasts
Suitable for contact-lens wearers
Dermatologically tested
Ophthalmologically tested

My thought about Product:
Both the colours are really pretty and contain shimmer as well. Very highly pigmented as swipe it with my finger and blend out nicely. The texture is very nice and provides intense colour coverage. They are very smooth and silky with a pearl like finish. The staying power is awesome. There is no problem with creasing or fading throughout the day. . It is very sticky too as stickiness helps with longevity and both colours would be flattering on all skin tones. These are really attention grabbing eye shadows and will definitely enhance your eyes for sure. I will also receommend The Body Shop Eyeshadow blender brush for great application. Here are my eye swatches:
  • Texture is very soft, sticky and smooth not powdery/chalky at all.
  • The pigment is perfect.
  • Easy to apply and blend.
  • Long lasting with no creasing, smudging or fading
  • No irritation like redness, itching or watery eyes.
  • Stays longer
  • Travel friendly
  • They do not provide a sponge applicator with it.
  • A bit expensive but worthy.
  • Size and quantity is very less.
Rating: 4 out of 5
Final Verdict: These eye colours are well worth the money because you only need a little bit to completely cover your eye.They go on smooth and are pretty pigmented, soft and blendable. These eye shadows are very amazing.I would highly recommend this product. 
Thank you.
