BECCA Ultimate Eye Colour Quad in Night Star

BECCA Cosmetics is a brand that I have loved for a long, LONG time.  They released their Ultimate Eye Colour Quads a few months back with their Smoke & Grace Collection.  There are five different quads to choose from: Night Star, Sun Chaser, Eclipse, Galactica, and Astro Violet.  My favorite of the 5 shade choices is Night Star, which is what I am showing you today. 

The outer packaging is their typical brownish-black cardboard with their name in silver.  The packaging of the product is a rubberized plastic with a metallic portion donning their name.  

“What it is:
A luxe quad compact of smooth, highly pigmented eye shadows in matte, demi-matte, and metallic finishes. 

What it does:
Color, contour, and highlight the eyes with one luxe palette. Four velvety smooth powder shadows in matte, demi-matte and metallic finishes offer ultimate looks in a complete wardrobe of intense color with rich dimension. Highly pigmented mineral powders build quickly and blend easily for lasting color in a silky smooth finish.

This set contains:
- 4 x 0.07 oz Eye Shadows

What else you need to know:
This formula is enriched with antioxidant vitamin E that helps to protect the skin from free-radical damage and provides moisturizing and anti-inflammatory properties. They also contain a special blend of powders and emollient agents for a soft, smooth, and uniform application. These shadows are free of fragrance and preservatives. “

The quad itself is surprisingly small.  When I saw it online I was thinking of something along the size of a MAC quad.  My hands are incredibly small (my 7 year old has the same size hands as me) and this quad doesn’t even fill up my palm.  I find that a huge benefit.  It is a compact that contains a mirror and four eye colors with which you can complete an eye look without adding any other colors.  PERFECT!

The eyeshadows themselves are impressive.  A couple are just buttery soft while the others are silky smooth.  While the textures in the palette are slightly different (mostly the same) the quality is of the highest regard.  
There is a shimmery blush/nude shade.  Next is a matte brownish-taupe with a slight green tint.  The darkest shade in the quad is described as a jet black by the company but I would disagree; it is more of a blackened brown–also matte.  The shade in the palette that makes it for me is a shimmery pale slate with hints of green.
I have nothing negative to say about this quad.  I love the brand, I love the product itself, and I even love the packaging.  I put together a look using the quad and I hope you like it.

To me this quad can easily be used for bridal looks as well as a night out on the town.  The 4 shades in the quad are perfectly varying enough to be a self-sustaining quad, meaning that you don’t need any other eyeshadows to complete an eye look.  You can even switch around the placement of the eyeshadows to create different looks.  I love versatility in my makeup products.
BECCA Ultimate Eye Colour Quads retail for $40 and can be found on the BECCA website as well as anywhere else that sells products from the brand.
