BECCA Volcano Goddess Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

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.

1st row

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?!

 

 

Drugstore Beauty Haul

Hello Loves! I hope you all are doing great this week! 🙂 I always walk in drugstores just planning to look at the new products but I always get sucked in looking at the sales and clearance areas. Tsk Tsk for me. :p Hi. I’m Chrissy and I’m a beauty junkie! I ended up buying things from Target, Walmart, CVS, and Rite Aid. Walmart I bought the Trim Manicure Kit that included a nail clipper, a toenail clipper, 2 cuticle sticks, a salon board and tweezers. It’s practical and I needed to restock on the salon board and cuticle sticks. For some reason, I’m always losing my nail clippers and the time that I need to clip them, they’re gone! This only costed $0.97 and that’s the original price! trim kit I’ve never really took care of my nails but I figured I would start so I bought the Sally Hansen Cuticle Massage Cream  with apricot oil for less than $5. It intensively moisturizes and conditions which is a plus since at work I’m always using my hands. sh cuticle cream I was looking at my Ibotta app (which is a rebate app for purchasing different things and getting cashback) and found that they’ll pay you back $1 for buying the Olay Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid Cleaning System. These usually run about $10-15 a piece but I was lucky enough to find a few on clearance for only $5!  It comes with the Shine, Shine Go Away Cleanser along with a cleansing brush. olay CVS Just recently, CVS started selling NYX products finally! Now I can earn that $5 ExtraCare Buck for beauty purchases including NYX. I got the  NYX Wonder Pencil in the shade Light. It can be used as a concealer, eye brightener, and a reverse lip liner. I used it as an eyeliner for the waterline and my, it works wonders! Literally as its name! image (4 I’ve heard marvelous things about the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer  in 20 Sand Sable. I’d advise to go to that magic red machine that gives you coupons when you scan your card because you’ll be surprised sometimes. When I scanned my card, I had one coupon that was $3 off any Maybelline cosmetic and another coupon that was $5 off a Physicians Formula purchase. I can’t complain on those! maybelline fit me Target The only thing I got was the NYC Long Wearing Nail Enamel in 141 Red Velvet Rope. nyc red velvet rope
