Behold! The Multi Tasking Power of This Neutral Gradient Palette

You can’t flip a magazine page or click a link on a beauty blog without seeing the words “ombre” and “contour.” These two concepts weren’t even on my radar just a few years ago, and now it seems like I’m living in an ombre and contoured world… with good reason. There is so much power in subtle gradients of color, something that was harnessed brilliantly in the BECCA Ombre Nudes Eye Palette.

If you’re looking for sophisticated nudes, this is the palette for you. There’s not a sparkler in the bunch, just five matte neutral nudes that practically anyone could wear in many ways.

Even though this palette is designed as eyeshadow, it is capable of so much more: perfect for facial contouring; can be used wet or dry as eyeliner, and works like a charm to define and darken brows of almost every shade.

The most unique thing about the Ombre Nudes Eye Palette ($40) is the similarity in shades. When I first looked at it, I thought the three darkest shades were identical. But no, there are subtle differences, and the similarity makes it a breeze to create a gradient eye. The two lightest shades are truly neutral, and the three darkest browns lean on the cool side of neutral.

The finely-milled powder shadows feel smooth and creamy thanks to green coffee oil, a natural ingredient that awakens the eyes and acts like a built-in primer for long wear. I’m guessing this might also be the secret to the colors blending so flawlessly.

I had so much fun creating looks, both subtle and super-bold, with these five colors. And when I ran out of ideas, I turned to the handy guide BECCA thoughtfully includes with the palette. Sorted by eye shape, the guide contains step-by-step instructions, like paint-by-numbers for makeup perfection.

  1. Love the ombré idea for getting various shades of the same color, it gives you more options and I like that they can then be layered in different ways. There isn’t a Becca product I’ve tried that I haven’t liked…great brand!

  2. This looks like a gorgeous palette! It looks perfect for daily, work appropriate eyeshadow. I like that the colors look rich and vivid while still remaining appropriate for an office environment. I will be picking this one up. Awesome review!!

  3. I bought this too. I agree with you, it’s very nice! I’ve even used it to contour my face. I wish the lightest shade was even lighter because I’m very fair/cool toned. But, I still love it and wear it often :)
