The Body Shop Enchanting Eye Palette Frosted Pastels Review

The Body Shop enchanted palette frosted pastels

I always get excited when The Body Shop releases new products especially for Christmas. It’s one of my favourite stores and their products are always so amazing. This year The Body Shop launched the Enchanting Eye Palette and I was mega fortunate to be sent the Frosted Pastels palette.

These four ultra-wearable shades were inspired by the latest colour trends, and come with a double-ended brush for easy application. The packaging has been designed with a special edition Nordic Christmas theme. Suitable for contact-lens wearers.

The packaging is a light flip top box that feels sturdy. The pattern on the packaging reminds me of those cute Christmas jumpers. The palette comes with 4 colours consisting of two matte and two shimmery shades. All shades were pigmented, creamy, easy to use and swatch.

Additional info:

  • Product made in Thailand
  • RRP $36.95
  • Comes in Frosted Pastel and Dolly Pastel
  • Available at The Body Shop
  • Life cycle 24 months

What I like:

  • The cute packaging
  • Good pigmentation
  • Long lasting colours
  • Colours blend easily
  • A good mix of shimmery and matte shades
  • I love the ‘how to’ guide at the back of the palette, great for newbies like me who usually buys a palette but have no idea what to put where

A great little holiday palette that creates gorgeous festive looks. If you’re looking for some last minute Christmas presents, check this palette out.

The Christmas Tag

the christmas tag

To get into the festive mood, I thought why not do a Christmas tag and that’s when I spotted The Christmas Tag on Milk Bubble Tea.

1. What is your favourite Christmas Movie/s?
Back when I was a kid, I used to love sitting in front of the tele all day watching Christmas movies. I wouldn’t say I have an absolute favourite but the most memorable movies would be Home Alone and A Mom For Christmas.

2. Do you open your presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?
My family celebrates Christmas with a nice big delicious dinner but we don’t exchange gifts. The husband and I will exchange gifts and we usually open on Christmas day. This year, we didn’t even bother wrapping our gifts and went straight to using them haha.

3. Do you have a favourite Christmas memory?
Why yes I do. December 2010, we spent Christmas at Mammoth Lakes in California. It was my first time seeing so much snow back then. I remember being fascinated with snow up to my knees. Anyway long story short, it was snowing on Christmas day and it just turned the whole Christmas experience to the next level.

4. Favourite festive food?
Anything that is sweet.

5. Favourite Christmas gift?
This question is an easy one, it would be my Hourglass Ambient Blush Palette! Every year, the husband and I set a budget on how much we can spend on a gift. I decided I wanted the blush palette and bought it myself…so romantic huh?

6. Favourite Christmas scent?
The smell of food cooking.

7. Do you have any Christmas Eve traditions?
Usually the husband and I will watch a movie together so nothing special or fancy.

8. What tops your tree?
I don’t have a Christmas tree yet because we’ve only just moved a few months ago. I’m being stingy and waiting for the sales to start at Myer. If I had a tree now, I think I would get a giant star or a bow for the tree topper.

9. As a kid what was the one (crazy, wild, extravagant) gift you always asked for but never received?
I’m not into crazy or wild gifts. I remember wanting a big Cabbage Patch Kid?

10. What’s the best part about Christmas for you?
Having 2 days off work and spending time with my family.

Thanks for reading peeps! I tag anyone who wants to do this tag and be sure to let me know in your comments.
