The palette includes two powder eyeshadows, demi-mattes Doeskin (a dusty, muted beige pink with a few tiny sparkles) and Tweed (a rosy, warm, very softly shimmery brown). Quartz is a creme eyeshadow, a shimmery peach.
And oh, Turkish Rose. Is that not the perfect rosy-flush blush shade? When I swatched the Fallen Angel palette, I mentioned that I have always been a powder blush kind of girl. Becca has finally won me over with their amazing creme blushes and lip-and-cheek cremes. They are pitch-perfect on shade, and so blendable, with color that is sheer-but-buildable. I have eyes for no other.
Barbarella is a black cake liner (Becca calls it a compact eyeliner). Cake eyeliner can’t be used dry (and I swatched it dry to illustrate that point). To use a cake eyeliner, you need a brush (an angled eyeliner brush or a thin, flat-topped tightlining brush). Dampen the brush, then work it back and forth over a corner of the cake (adding more water to the brush as needed) until you achieve a paste the consistency of shoe polish. When you’re done applying your eyeliner, the cake will quickly dry (and unlike many powder shadows, its texture will be unchanged by this wetting).
All Becca palettes of this 5-pan layout are $65.
The “Best of Becca” palette contained Damask eyeshadow (golden bronze shimmer), Brocade eyeshadow (rich bronze shimmer), Turkish Rose cream blush, Blossom lip & cheek cream (soft caramel nude), and Bird of Paradise gloss (pearlised peachy gold). I wanted to list the shades because that palette was limited edition and is getting harder to find.
