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?!

 

 

Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Eyeshadow Palette

Happy Monday loves!

I’m changing things up this week since I’ve still got my gel nails on! This has been an over due eye shadow palette review that I completely forgot about! Back in Christmas season, CVS had a Wet n Wild palette kit which included an eye shadow palette, an eye primer, and an eyeliner. This has been in my makeup storage for quite some time and forgot about it. The only reason I remembered it was because I was wearing a green top and wanted to go for a green look, and I found the palette hiding. This palette has 6 shades, and is called Comfort Zone.

There’s 2 sets of shadow shades: a rosey taupe set and an emerald green set.

The Rosey Taupe Set:

 

  1. A light golden shimmery brow bone color. I use this for the brow bone and also sometimes in the inner corner for a pop of color!
  2. A rosey eyelid shade: This usually my go to eyelid color when I want a rosey pink look. I love how its light and actually very buildable.
  3. A medium bronze crease shade: I wish the picture would do the color justice! It’s a medium bronze with  metallic shimmer. I sometimes use this as an eyelid shade for the days I want a basic bronze look
  4. A darker brown definer shade: This is probably one of the darkest shade in this palette! It has a burgandy reddish glitter to it. I love using this as an eyeliner for those days I don’t want to use a gel or liquid liner.

The Emerald shades:

I’ve read that people who use an emerald shade for brown eyes makes the eyes pop. So I love this part of the palette!

  • A. a bronze browbone: Again I use this for mostly the inner eye. It’s such a pretty bronze taupe shimmer.
  • B. a spring green eyelid: This is actually my favorite color from the whole palette. It’s a pretty shimmery green that is buildable. It looks really pretty on top of the Revlon ColorStay Creme Eyeshadow in Pistachio.
  • C. a grayish brown with a shimmery top crease. It’s a bit harder to blend in compared to the others.
  • D. a red brown with a blue-teal duochrome and frosty top. I love this is shade as well just because it’s so different!

There you have it loves! My very first Wet n Wild Eyeshadow Palette Review. What do you guys think?!

A little about the company:

It was developed to help the everyday woman keep her youthful glow. It’s available in countries all over the world, and can be purchased at Nordstroms, Walgreens, Beauty.com, and Pharmasave in Canada and many other beauty supply stores.

From looking at the site, one of my wishlists is the Measurable Difference Facial Nano Steamer. It would work wonders for my esthetician career since I don’t exactly have a facial steamer! lol >_<
