Body Shop 4-Step Smokey Eye Palette - Brown Gold + FOTD

In addition to the Quo by Orly nail polishes, I also got an eyeshadow quad from the Body Shop for Christmas. It's a warm brown smokey eye palette with a gold creme sparkle eyeshadow.

I enjoy this palette. The pigmentation is very good, they are extremely smooth and creamy and they blend so well. In addition to all this, the Body Shop sells only cruelty-free products which leaves me in good conscious after using them!

The packaging is beautiful - plastic case, well secured with a gold band that reads "the Body Shop". Large mirror inside and the palette came with a brown mini eyeliner and a small brush.

Here are some photos and swatches as well as my face of the day that I did with this palette (and "Purely Naked" eyeshadow from Makeup Geek). Enjoy!

Swatches taken with flash. As you can see, the gold creme eyeshadow ends up being a very light (almost disappointing, but not quite) gold glitter. Nice as a base!

Still working on figuring out how to capture the looks better. Thanks for looking!

Does a proclamation of cruelty-free from a makeup company help you make a decision on whether or not to buy the makeup?


  1. I am looking forward to buy makeup . I would make sure to go for this palette as it is from one of my favourite brand. Thank you! sharing this post.

  2. I like brown eye shades. They look awesome in a night function and also good for making a smoky eye.
