The Body Shop Friendship Weekend Sale and NOTD 01

I was at The Body Shop (TBS) with Tinkerbell for the Friendship Weekend sale (25-27 Feb) where TBS members will get a 30% discount and friends get a 20% discount off their purchases. So Tinkerbell and I took the opportunity to get some stuff and one of the items I got was the TBS baked eyeshadow in 08 Amethyst.

I first spotted this on the eyes of the sales assistance and was immediately captivated by the vibrant purple colors. Here's what the eyeshadow looks like with its packaging.

It was SO SO SO extremely difficult to capture the true colors that I see with my own two eyes on camera. Really, I wanted to do this eyeshadow justice but the camera is not picking up the lovely shimmers. Definitely check the color in stores and see for yourself. AMAZING. :D

Texture/Formula : A little bit gritty. Be careful of fall-out. 
Color payoff : Not that great as I expected it to be but the amazing purple colors was the overwrite to that. The last picture below shows the baked eyeshadow swatched wet. Definitely shows up much better.
The smaller crescent is a dark purple with SUPER PRETTY  fine purple, pink and silver glitters. The bigger crescent is a violet purple with fine pink glitters.

Anyways, here are some other pictures... the very best I could do for now. Enjoy!

Till then... here are my nails of the day (NOTD) :

Base :  Rimmel Nail Stronger Base Coat
Color:  Stage Cosmetics 19 Extreme (black loaded with fine gold shimmer)
Top:    The Face Shop Nail Top Coat
