The Body Shop Down To Earth 03 Palette

A couple of years ago I worked in The Body Shop and I fell in love with their eye products. 
I myself have super sensitive skin and when some products are very pigmented they can irritate my eyes but with 
The Body Shop I've never had that problem. 

They are mostly known for their amazing body butters, creams and oils but I don't think many people are aware of the range of makeup they do. 

Recently they released a new range called the Down To Earth range and it's a number of eyeshadow products that almost represent colours of the Earth. The shades are unreal! 

I've tried the Down To Earth 03 Palette €25. It's a quad palette 

Three of the shadows are a grey/green shade and one bright shimmer shade 

So the way these are designed is to be able to create a complete eye look using all four shades. The top left shimmer shade Indian Rose Quartz can be placed under the brow bone as a highlight, inner corners and on the lid too. 
The top right shade Atlas Rhassoul shade can be placed on the lid to give that deep smokey look as well as placed on the outer corner. 
The bottom left shade Cerro Rico Silver can also be placed on the lid. 
The bottom right shade Siberia Anthracite would be then used on the outer corners to really darken and smoke out the look or placed on the lid and blown out / blended with one of the lighter shades. 

So as you can see this Palette has many uses for creating an eye look. 

The consistency of the shadows are a lovely creamy texture which makes them super easy to blend and work with. I love this in a shadow. The colour pay off is great they don't crease on the eye and last all day. I always apply an eye primer or concealer on my eyes before any eye look this helps with colour pigment and pay off with every product. 

This palette is perfect for complimenting brown eyes because they would really make eyes pop. So if your looking for a stocking filler for someone who loves makeup and has brown eyes this would be fab. 

Now in saying that they shades will work really well on both blue and green eyes too these just happen to compliment brown eyes fabulously! 
If you wet your brush with either fixing spray or water it will intensify the colour and shimmers so much more which is a handy tip. 

A little goes a long way with these shadows so you will get a long time out of each shadow. You can also take the shadows out the palette and mix and match them with other shades and palette from the range. 

Overall I loved the palette and love love their shadows I always have. 

Have you tried any of their eye products?
