Review // The Body Shop 4-step Smokey Brown Palette


 I'm a massive fan of neutral shades so when i saw this palette i instantly fell in love as the shades are so glamorous and pretty. I really love the packaging of this palette as on the front it has a beautiful look created with this palette and on the back a easy step by step guide so it's made really easy to use. It also comes with two little eyeshadow brushes, a rounded eyeshadow brush and a angle brush which fit in the palette and are actually really lovely quality. 

The palette itself is quite small and compact with a beautiful gold body shop symbol on the top, it's very sturdy and clips shut without budging so makes it perfect for travelling. On the inside the lid is a huge mirror, so perfect for touch ups, there's a small tray to keep the two brushes and then the four stunning shades which are quite large considering it's quite a small palette and are all extremely pigmented and blend like a dream. 

The first shade is a beautiful shimmery light champagne colour which highlights and complements the other colours wonderfully. Used on the brow bone it ties the other colours in nicely whilst being quite subtle, it's also really nice to put on the inner corner to just really open up and brighten your eyes. Secondly is an amazingly rich coppery gold tone that has a lovely shimmer and looks really pretty when applied on the lid and then blended out. The third shade is a lovely light shimmery brown that compliments the copper tone again really nicely when applied on the outer corner and along the crease of the eye, it makes the smokey look without being to overly dramatic. And lastly is the only matte shade in this palette and is a very rich chocolate brown which i have used along the lash line and slightly winged out to create a subtle eyeliner but i think it would also look nice to intensify the outer corner if your after a more dramatic look. 

Overall this is a stunning palette to own and is amazing value and quality for money, if like me you adore neutral looks you need this palette in your collection. I would also say it's a great palette for those who's just starting out in eyeshadow as it has a step by step guide and two brushes you ideally need to create a nice smokey eye.
