BECCA Ultimate Eye Colour Quad in Eclipsed ~ Photos, Swatches, and Review

BECCA came out with their new Ultimate Eye Colour Quads ($40 US) quite some time ago but I had not gotten around to trying them out. I have Eclipsed to share with you today and I can tell you it was well worth the wait.

The quads come in round rubberized compacts with metal embellishment just like their cheek and face compacts. I love this compact and sturdy packaging. There is no wasted space with teeny brushes or sponge tipped applicators.

Unfortunately my palette arrived with one of the shades broken. I pressed most of the shadow back in it’s pan without losing much product but unfortunately my photos are not pristine. I also figured since one was broken that “what the heck” I could dig right in and start testing it without worrying about taking photos first. ;)

The information from BECCA refers to the shades as: Metallic Silver, Metallic Champagne, Metallic Khaki, Metallic Moss

I would describe the shades as follows: Shimmery charcoal grey, metallic champagne, matte cool brown, shimmery moss green. The metallic champagne is super pigmented and creamy. The remaining three shades are nicely pigmented. The matte shade has a nice smooth texture and blends well. The grey and moss shade are a bit drier than the other in the palette but they lay down and blend beautifully. They last through the day without fading or creasing on me.

I think this is a superb palette. While it doesn’t include a browbone shade it is really nice to see that it offers a matte crease shade as well as options for day and night looks with the bright shimmery champagne and well as two deeper shade options. The formula contains vitamin E and is fragrance and preservative free.

    You aren’t going to believe this but I bought and returned it. In the palette it looks so dull. I had bought way too much at the time and I hadn’t used this so I returned it. Your swatches make me sorry.

      You didn’t even TRY it? Oh dear! I hear you though. I have so many things I love it’s hard to share the love around.

    This is the first post that actually make me want one of those Becca quads. The pigmentation looks outstanding and the colour selection is perfection. I’m only slightly worried that they might look a bit muddy on me.

    I was just looking at this at Sephora on-line, so I’m glad to see you reviewed it. Think I’m going to splurge and get this one. The colors are beautiful. Would love to see you post a look with it.

      They are lovely shades. I didn’t think I’d like it because of the drier texture, when I prefer more buttery powders, but the colors are gorgeous.
