Face to Face: The Body Shop Shimmer Cube Palette 18




"My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?
Mamma mia, now I really know,
My my, I could never let you go."







Hmmm...MAC Colour Craft makes me sing! But I have to win! I need self-control! Goooosfraba! Goooosfraba! ^_^


Yeah! We all have temptations! We all want MAC because it's MAC! While blog hopping, I saw a lot of beauty bloggers showing their swatches of MAC Colour Craft. Reading every reviews, looking the different swatches, I even have my choices on what to buy if I already have the mullah. But I want them all. How I wish I can buy it all!

So I have to live not in my dreams but in the reality that I can't afford them all. What I did was to look for other brands with the same shades. I guess this can stop me raving.

Did you know that MAC Colour Craft Mineralize Eyeshadow in Fashion Patch had almost the same shade with TBS Shimmer Cubes Palette 18?
Almost, because TBS have only 3 shades of what's in MAC.

I got this for a long time and after MAC Colour Craft was release, that's when I remember that I also have the same shades. I think I won't be needing MAC Fashion Patch anymore. I catch this item on sale that's why it's much cheaper than MAC. I forgot the original price of this and when I searched online thru TBS website, it's $22(~PHP 1,058.13) while MAC Fashion Patch is shockingly way cheaper, it's only $19.50 (~PHP 937.89). So obviously, it's not advisable to buy TBS with its original price. If you can catch this baby on sale or if its even available, then you're a lucky girl.





SWATCHES







Here are a few similarities and differences based on what I've observed and researched in both products.

Note from the Author: I don't know much about MAC Fashion Patch but this is just what I observed, researched, read and saw. I may not include images nor names of persons since this is based on my own opinion.


Ingredients are not included in the websites of both product.

SHADES:
The left part of the shades are what the product have and the right part is what it looks like (based on my opinion)


**I can't say much since I don't own MAC Fashion Patch but we all know MAC carries its name for being a highly pigmented makeup and dependably long lasting, therefore the info above can possibly be true. ^_^








I do love looking for products that is way cheaper than that of expensive makeup like MAC. All you have to do is make a wide search so you can find the same quality with reasonable price.

You can make a party/night-out looks with this TBS Shimmer Cube.


TBS Website
says,

Best if you want to:

Create a flirty, feminine look with four fresh, shimmering eye colors.


TIPS:

Shimmer Cube Shades can be used separately or blended together. Apply dry for a sheer finish or wet for greater color intensity and metallic finish.


Hope you learn something! ^_^ Thanks for reading...
