 Swatches in Natural Light and my opinion about Shimmer Waves: Bronze

When it comes to makeup products, I always look for multipurpose products which are compact ones that can be carried on the go! i love travel friendly multi purpose products.
The Body Shop Shimmer waves comes in 3 beautiful shades: Apricot, Blush & Bronze out of which I picked Bronze. It has neutral shades both dark and light..What  I mostly like about this is that it forms a rosy toned bronzer which is absolutely gorgeous on olive toned girls! This can be used a eyeshadow, highlighter too. 
Pigmentation of the shades are awesome!Each shade of this case has a great color payoff and is very easy to blend and apply. Wear time is upto 7 hours which is decent in my opinion, it doesn’t have chunky glitters on it…In my opinion this is a palette with a mix of metallic neutral shades that can be used on cheek and eye area. 
  • multitask product (can be used as eye shadow & blush/bronzer)
  • great pigmentation
  • easy to blend and apply
  • wear time of 7 hours on cheeks and 5-6 hours on eyes over a primer
  • easily available
  • shelf life of 2 years
  • Expensive 🙁

Overall, I think its worth a try!
