Review: The Body Shop Shimmer Waves

Left: Bronze, Right: Blush

Left: Bronze, Right: Blush

Where to buy?: The Body Shop stores or website
Price: $22.00

What The Body Shop says:
Pearl pigments provide shimmer and sparkle, helping to disguise fine lines around the eye area. Ultra-fine talc is a high-performance powder that enables smooth and even application. Community Trade marula oil from Namibia helps to repair skin’s moisture barrier.

My Review:
I purchase the shade blush first and after trying it for weeks and fell in love with it I decided to purchase bronze. Like most powders that have these multicolor strips (Milani's Glimmer Stripes, Bobbi Brown's Shimmer Bricks etc) they're multipurpose, they can be used as a bronzer, blush, highlighter or eyeshadows. They're very blendable and not glittery but it gives a beautiful sheen.

"Bronze" is a great bronzer if you want that nice summer warm glow and they also make a awesome eyeshadow for everyday looks.

"Blush" makes a good highligther on the cheekbones or brow bone.

Although compare to the Milani Glimmer Stripes (Review) I still like the Milani one much better, its cheaper, their texture is much softer and have more shade selections. Otherwise these are not too bad, I recommend the shade "Bronze" if you're interested because it suits every skin tones.

Would I buy this again?: no
Rating: 4/5

Hi Yuna! =)

Which one do you like better, the bronze or blush? I just bought the blush but am thinking about exchanging it with the bronze. FYI, I am asian w/ a light complexion. Thanks!

@angel.mojay: For the Blush shade I really think it should be a highligther even for someone who has a light complexion because its very very light/sheer. I would recommend the Bronze which can also double as a eyeshadow :]
