A Plate of Palette: The Body Shop Eye and Cheek Palette 02 (Winter Collection '09)
For the third and last installment of A Plate of Palette, I present you The Body Shop's Winter Eye and Cheek Palette in 02.
A palette of warm sumptuous eye and cheek colour to create classic smoky eye and warm blush combination with our fabulous wet and dry powder formulation. Each palette contains four smooth wet and dry Eye Colors and one complimentary Cheek Colour, along with a duo ended eye applicator for easy application and a handy mirror.When I saw the Winter Collection Makeup of The Body Shop, it was love at first sight. But it was nearing holiday and the fact that we had to buy tons of furniture and appliances for our new unit kept me from buying this palette. But by some force of nature, I was able to get myself this palette in 02. And so far, no regret. I love the pigmentation and the subtle shimmer that is so apt for the season. I can even drag the looks for the spring and fall season since the colors are warm and flexible.
I used this palette for our New Year's Eve dinner at home. It was just me, R, dad and Tito Bubot but I opted to put on makeup anyway. I used all of the eye shadows and it glided and blended beautifully without the need of a primer. The cheek color made my apples rise like souffle. LOL.
For someone who's just starting out with their collection, this palette is a good way to begin experimenting. The colors may be shimmery but it is definitely fine for day wear. I love how the 02 palette suits most Filipina skin because of the warm tones. The complete blush and eyeshadow takes away the stress of mix and matching.
01 shade: blush
02 shade: caramel shimmer
03 shade: pink shimmer
04 shade: plum shimmer
05 shade: chocolate shimmer
Another great thing about this palette, you can use the eyeshadows wet for maximum intensity of dry when in a hurry.
I love that I can tote this around for an overnight stay and I'll be set for the whole day and night. The size is small enough to fit a good sized evening bag for retouch. Definitely great for weddings and such.
The blush is even comparable to the ever popular NARS Orgasm. Wow, right?
The eye shadows aren't as shimmery as one would think. It's subtle enough to be used for everyday use.

getting addicted to it!
P.S. I got this palatte along with the glitter liner and mascara package. The total cost saved me about Php500.00. Sorry I forgot how much it was, but it was around Php1,600++.
The Body Shop Eye and Cheek Palette in 02 is available at all The Body Shop Branches located at your favorite malls. I got mine at SM Mall of Asia.
