Becca Cosmetics released four ‘Ultimate Eye Color Quads’ as part of their recent ‘Smoke and Grace Collection’. I first picked up ‘Night Star’ and was so pleased with its performance that I more recently picked it up in Galactica as well. All four palettes are quite irresistable and I found incredibly difficult to choose between them. The luxe palettes contain four complementary shades to color, contour and highlight. The shades of Becca are always tastefully chosen, high quality and rich in pigment easily making me swoon for these new palettes. See these beautiful young woman for look inspiration.
The four shadows are velvet smooth, and blend with great ease. They are highly pigmented although easy to sheer out or layer for a more intense effect. The powder is finely milled and not too soft, there is zero fallout. These shadows are truly a pleasure to work with, this one has become part of my everyday routine. The palette is versatile allowing you to wear both day and night. The shadows combine to make a stunning smokey-eye. I find them to last all day on me.

- The lightest shade is a metallic champagne peach. The shade is too dark to use as a highlight on my skin tone. I find myself using this daily as an all over eye shadow.
- The second shade is described on Becca’s website as a metallic brown, I describe it as a metallic copper/bronze. This shade is a beauty and perfect for bringing out green eyes.
- The third shade is a matte ebony. I will use this either wet or dry to line my eyes.
- The final shade is a matte dark brown. A beautiful brown that I will use as a contour when creating a smokey-eye look.
Galactica is $40 here and also available at Sephora
