Happy Monday creatives!
I hope you all had a great and safe weekend!
I’m back again with a new eyeshadow palette review! I’ve been using this BECCA Volcano Goddess for the past few weeks now. It was an impulse buy at TJ Maxx way before the Corona pandemic.
It has a range of shades, some natural, some glitter, and some metallics.
Cloud: an easy to use light cream shade used best for a base color (matte)
Volcanic Sand: a cream shade that can be used for either a base or a transitional shade (matte)
Granite: a light dusty taupe shade that could be used for a base, transitional or even just an allover shade (matte)
Gilded: one of the most golden shades I have seen of yet! In my opinion, the best way to apply this is by gently tapping the eyeshadow instead of using the swiping motion. (metallic)
Now we’re getting into the glitters and metallics!
Diamond Dust: This is a metallic cream shade with pink and gold specks of glitter this one is actually an if-y for me. it’s kind of hard to blend in even if you do the tapping motions. It’s a bit chunkier than the other glitters. I usually use this as an ending touch to my shadow look. (metallic)
Haze: This is more of a mauve-y rose gold shade that might be one of my mostly used shades of this palette! (shimmer)
Red Rock: This would be a light maroon shade that works perfectly for a crease look. (shimmer)
Lava: A sharp metallic copper that really does remind me of lava! It’s a very distinctive shade. (metallic)
These are more of the earthy dark tones
Agate Ash: a soft taupe shimmer shade that can be used perfectly for a all over shade. You could easily just wash that shade over your eye and add some eyeliner and you would look perfect! (shimmer)
Crate: somewhat of a deep shimmering stone shade that again would be perfect just on it’s own. (shimmer)
Hematite: a deep gunmetal shade with a lot of sparkles! This one as well is best applied with your finger in tapping motions. Remember it’s always best to use your fingers for most of the metallic colors. (shimmer)
Midnight Sapphire: a shimmering midnight blue. This is such a beautiful color however, this is actually the 2nd most hardest shade to apply! Again tapping with your fingers is your best way of achieving a smoldering look. I occasionally use this shade when I’m going out in the evening and need a little umph in my look. (metallic)
Pros: The shimmering shadows are to die for! You have a range of different shades whether you want to use it as an everyday look, a special look or an nightlife look.
Cons: I would recommend to do your eye makeup first as you do get quite some fallout as you apply mostly the metallic shades.
Do I regret buying it? Umm, of course not! I really do love this palette and can we talk about the packaging! It’s screaming out indeed volcanic vibes. Don’t you think?!
