BECCA Limited Edition Ocean Jewels Collection + a Giveaway!

Press Sample

 

BECCA’s newest collection, Ocean Jewels is inspired by the multi-faceted color of seashells and ocean jewels. The collection consists of a mermaid inspired Eye Shadow Palette ($35), a Highlighter Palette ($46) and Liptuitive Glow Gloss ($25).

I admit when I first saw the collection I thought it might not be suited for more *ahem* mature ladies but then I could NOT get the image of the eye shadow palette out of my head: the beautiful packaging and that stunning, complex purple shade… well I was smitten and I’m so glad I caved into my obsession!

The limited edition eye palette features seven mesmerizing eye shadows with three different finishes: creamy matte, metallic and twinkling toppers.

  • Seashell is a creamy ivory beige matte
  • Abalone is a metallic duo-chrome pastel purple
  • Ocean Jasper is a duo-chrome brown with  red, blue and green shift (topper)
  • Tourmaline is a creamy brown matte
  • Sandstone is a warm metallic copper
  • Spirit Quartz is a deep metallic silver taupe with purple undertones
  • Mermaid Pearl is an iridescent holographic shimmer with blue shift (topper)

Seashell and Tourmaline are the only matte shades and they are SO smooth and creamy! The standout shades for me are Abalone with its pretty sparkle and Ocean Jasper with the brown/blue shift. Mermaid Pearl has iridescent blue and green sparkle that make it perfect as a topper but I don’t care for it on it own. While Sandstone and Spirit Quartz may not look all that unique, you can easily add a topper to change the look. I did get some fallout with Mermaid Pearl. That said, every color in the palette is outstanding and the toppers add an extra dimension that is incredible. The palette is ideal for soft, pretty spring looks. At first glance you may think Ocean Jewels isn’t very versatile, but that’s where the toppers come into play–you can transform any shade with them and have fun creating your own custom shades.

All the shades blend beautifully, even Tourmaline, the deep brown. Deep toned mattes can be patchy and hard to work with, but not this one! All the shades are highly pigmented right out of the pan, with the exception of Seashell but that’s because it’s pretty much the color of my skin and is meant to be a base shade. The toppers are beautifully reflective and perform nicely. I found you get the biggest contrast by using Tourmaline as a base with the toppers: Mermaid Pearl over Tourmaline changes the brown into a lovely green, Ocean Jasper over Tourmaline a pretty blue.

Mermaid Pearl over Tourmaline

For this look, I used Seashell as a base, Spirit Quartz in the crease, Abalone on the lid and inner corners, Ocean Jasper on the outer third, Mermaid Pearl on the brow bone and Tourmaline to line upper and lower lashes. This was really easy to do and I like the way it turned out!

The packaging of the BECCA Ocean Jewells Eye Shadow Palette is elegant round silver compact with a beautiful seashell design on the front. It really is stunning and gives off a lovely ocean vibe. There is a full-size mirror which is always appreciated.

Liptuitive Glow Gloss is a custom color, ultra-nourishing lip gloss that reacts to the natural chemistry of your lips and blossoms into your own unique pink shade. It has a pretty, subtle sparkle to it, feels wonderful on the lips, is not the least bit sticky and it smells tropical! On my pale lips, it’s a sheer, mid-warm pink.

See the sparkle!

  2. I like the calming waves of the ocean, the sand,
    and seashells.
    Thanks, Cindi

  3. Crystal Martin says

    Im obsessed with this palette and every shade in it

  4. My favorite thing about the ocean is the very edge where it lazily comes up to bond with the beach. I’m fascinated by the sudden ability to see thru the water clearly to the sand below. This is where the water deposits its mysteries for beach lovers to have the joy of discovery. I love how the color changes right there from blue to white to clear. I’m captivated by every beach manicure I see because of the tru-toned water and how it is indistinguishable from the sand at that point. I Haagen spent my favorite hours in Hawaii at that mystical end of the wave discovering treasures while cooling my feet. It brings me joy.
