The Body Shop Star Silver
Yes they do, but they seem slightly smaller than 26mm. With a magnet, it’s no biggie. You can see a picture of it in the palette in How to Make Your Own Pans for Pressing Pigments: A Beauty Newbie Guide
Recently I bought two shadows from The Body Shop. Normally, I am not thrilled about the pigmentation in their shadows, but when I stopped into the store last week I saw an amazing silver. After swatching it, I can say without a doubt it is as pigmented as any MAC shadow. When you swatch it dry it’s heavenly- when you add a little mixing medium? Liquid metal!!!
Ahhh. It’s gorgeous.
Anyway, I had just come back from the MAC store where I had bought an empty palette. Just looking at the size of the shadow I thought it would fit the palette, so I bought it. When I got home, I was really excited to depot my Body Shop eyeshadow, until….
I realized it wasn’t like a normal single eyeshadow; one where the shadow pan sits in a black tray that then sits into the case of the eyeshadow. No, the Body Shop has to be different! Grrr. The case is completely one piece and the pan sits tightly into that case. Now that I had it home and open, I could see it was going to be a big hassle to get than darn pan out of there. Or was it?
Normally when I depot something, I always peel the back off. And do you
know what I found?
A hole in the back of the eyeshadow, one that was hidden under the sticker! Before I show you how, let me just say, that I got this shadow out with less effort than ever before. I only waited 3 minutes and the pan come out nice and clean. No dents, no fumes, no crumbly eyeshadow.
Wanna know how?
