  • Formula: Eyeshadows are creamy but very powdery in general. The Light shades are particularly more powdery and therefore were hard to build. Definitely need a primer underneath when using this product. Perhaps best for a more light, natural look.

  • Palette: Colors at a glance are very beautiful. However, once you start playing with it, you notice that you don't have a lot of choices when it comes to medium/darker shades. Therefore, I found it very hard to come up with versatile looks and always went back to the 1 or 2 looks I could come up with. This is mainly due to the fact that out of the 7 shades, you have 4 that are shades of white/ivory with either a more neutral, yellow, or pink undertone. The darker shades, especially Hot Cocoa and Toasted Marshmellow, looked really flattering on the eyes. Additionally, there are only 2 finishes: satin-matte and high-shine which again, on the lids didn't make a big enough difference for the palette to be versatile.

  • Generally, a little disappointed with this palette as the formula for BECCA's highlighters are so good. I just wished that translated to the eyeshadows as well.
  • Beautiful medium-dark colours 
  • Packaging is beautiful
  • Packaging leaves a lot of fingerprints
  • Only 2 finishes that are both sparkly/shiny (Satin-Matte, High-Shine)
  • Powdery
  • Not very buildable 
  • Not versatile
  • Too many light shades that look almost the same - not enough darker shades
  • Price
Repurchase? No
