BECCA Cosmetics – Volcano Goddess – Eyeshadow Palette

IMG_0080

A stunningly beautiful palette of vivid, metallic and matte shades to unleash your inner Goddess.

I stumbled upon this palette whilst on Instagram, and I couldn’t believe the array of colours that were in this palette. BECCA have captured a Volcanic eruption perfectly – the deep reds, the light beige with the smokey greys and black.

I’ve seen BECCA on Instagram a lot, and in awe of their ability to create a natural glow and vivid shades, so I just had to get this one. I am so glad I did.

If you follow me on Instagram you would know I crushed hard on this palette, its my go to for a bit of empowering glam. The multitude of shades allow me to create unique looks every time and dare me to be braver with each look!

The formula is creamy, with little to no fallout after a Jeffree Star-esque brush tap to remove excess, and the pigmentation is very vivid – a little goes a long way making this a perfect build up the shade palette.

The shades are punchy, but can be honed for a subtle eye look or you can create a strong, empowering eye look. This is definitely a palette everyone should have in their collections, it is simply stunning.

Bottom Line: One of the prettiest palettes I have ever bought!

OPV Beauty – Yemoja Eyeshadow Palette

IMG_2069

A majestically beautiful palette of vivid, metallic and matte shades.

I stumbled upon this palette whilst on Instagram, and I couldn’t believe the colours and how vivid they were – so I had to buy it and test it for myself. And I’m so glad I did.

OPV Beauty based this palette on inspiration from the Nigerian goddess of Yoruba, the protector of women, love, and healing. This lead to the creation of twelve oceanic shades ranging from a deep crimson red, Eko, to a deep blue, Oba.

The palette boasts a healthy amount of matte and foil shades to help add dimension and light to your eye makeup. The shadows are build-able, with good colour pay off, and blend well allowing for creating combination shades.

The foils apply easy with fingers, and via wet or dry flat brushes to help create intensity desired. My personal favourites are Ayao, a pale pink gold reflects which when applied is a wonderful rose gold appearance, and Oko, a deep foiled forest green. The diversity of the shades make this a great palette to experiment with, and the quality is superb with little fallout.

Bottom Line: A delicious array of colours to create dramatic foiled looks as well a matte masterpieces.
