Current cravings and how to curb them

I have in fact gotten over the crave for Urban Decay eyeshadow in half baked during my mission to finish up some items in my collection. But it didn't last for long as of late I saw a beautiful eyelook with the Body Shop Chocolate box shimmer cubes 06 on youtube.

The Body Shop chocolate box shimmer cubes in 06

I have not gone in person recently to swatch them, but have swatched the shimmer cubes in stores through the years, and what I remember is they are VERY shimmery and I never really was tempted to buy any of them, if it was due to shimmer, the packaging or the size (it is a lot of product 4x4 grams that would last for years and years).
The more I looked online through swatches of the shimmer box, the more I came to realize I must have these shadows, or very similar in my collection, and this is what I came up with:

My "shimmer box"


So my shimmer box 06 from the Body Shop is made of:
Wet and wild comfort zone palette: the first swatch is a mix of the two top left colors (browbone and eyelid)
Almay intense i-color in 412 trio for blues: the bottom color of this trio is the second swatch
Maybelline single eyeshadow in silken taupe: the third swatch
Almay intense i-color in 412 trio for blues: the brown in this trio is the fourth and last swatch
You can compare my swatches to swatches taken by Beautyshelfie and British beauty addict and see if you think they are similar or not.

At least I do not need to invest in the Body shop palette, as I seem to have all the colors in it.

Hope this has been an inspiration for you to go through your stash when you get the next craving for a product.
