The Body Shop Bronze Shimmer Waves

Hello everyone!

Boredom had kicked in, altough its Friday after an exhausting week I can never be bothered to actually go out, so I just sit at home doing nothing. I should probably start revising for my prelims but I can never focus and I get a lot of homework everyday so I never have time. They've put them forward this year which means that I'll have to do them at the beginning of November and I'm s****ing myself!

I thought I would just post swatches of The Body Shop Shimmer Waves. I got these about 2 weeks about, because I thought this was a bit subtler than using one-coloured bronzer and it has a highlight to it. It pretty much reminds me of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, that I never bought because of the whopping price (over £30, I don't think so!). This is £16, and I had a voucher and paid £11 which I thought was quite bargainous for the amout you get! I got the 01 Bronze shade, unfortunately there was only 2 shades to choose from the other one being like a mix of pinks which I didn't really like. Actually I can't say that I didn't like it, because I didn't even swatch it, but the look of it wasn't too pleasing. Anyway here's the swatches for you!

Personally I really like it, but it is a matter of personal taste. It's wearable and suitable for daily wear when you haven't got a lot of time - it's crucial for me somedays when I haven't got as much time to do my make up in the morning. They do stay on for a reasonable amount of time, what you would expect from this type of product, I only ever tried this on top of foundation and it didn't settle into pores or anything so it's a YAY for me! It's also makeup bag friendly, it's a compact, won't crack and you get bronzer highlighter and blusher! So you do get a hell of a good deal for £16... I like how these could be used as eyeshadows, I've never tried it but I reckon that they would be okay to use on eyelids.

That's it for now, but you'll probably hear from me soon!
