Becca — The Stealthy Shangtung

Becca Shantung Eyeshadow ($24.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a beautiful warmed-up molten brown with bronze shimmer and golden sheen. It has subtle red undertones, and it’s such a gorgeous bronze shade. The texture is smooth, soft, and almost buttery, but without any powderiness. It almost feels like it melts onto the skin (but it’s not a cream, it is a powder).

What a great first shadow for me to try from Becca! However, the higher price point accompanied by the below average quantity has me a bit jarred. Really, 0.03 oz.? Most high-end brands at similar price points put at least 0.05 oz., which is nearly double.

    No Swatches? :(

  2. Evelyn

    wow, I haven’t seen something from Becca in ages, I thought the company had gone out of business.

  3. LizMarie

    Those colors are gorgeous!! But can you say UGLY PACKAGING?!

  4. Wendy M.

    Ooh, even the shades look buttery!
    I like.

  5. Hilana

    Ah! Now I see them! :) When I opened it up the first time they did not show up.
    gorgeous colours. Thanks Christine. I love seeing it on your skin because colours could look so different in the containers.

  6. Jess

    Is this similar to MAC’s bronze shadow?

  7. Tabi

    Very pretty! Looks like a sister to UD’s Smog, though, so I think I’ll pass since I already have Smog (which is amazing).

  8. d

    maybe the it’s more expensive because of the mirror packaging (but it looks sturdy)

  9. Lauren

    the packaging looks like nipples! (i must be eternally 12)

  10. Lizz M.

    Just came in here to say I love the packaging and if it were a little less pricey i’d buy out the line, haha. This looks gorgeous, looking forward to more swatches of these shadows.

    theres nooooo way im paying for a teeny tiny bit of eyeshadow for 24 dollars! i can get the same thing from mac for cheaper.

  12. Ryan

    I love the packaging and the color but its just to expensive.

  13. Looks like MAC Woodwinked when swatched.

  14. pquanda

    Ohh! Please do a look with this please!!

  15. Kim L

    oooooh! drooooollll! Korres Golden Brown 34S looks a little similar and has a very soft texture as well. Maybe less red. But one could get the whole Golden Goddess kit for only $30 instead if this for $24.
    This is still stunning tho – stop tempting me!

  16. Christine,
    The Becca line is amazing! For value I suggest one of their palettes. The Best of Becca or Avalon are really good basics. They usually run $60-65 but you get 2 e/s, a cream blush and a highlighter (Avalon). I got mine at Dermstore with a 15% off code so it was only $50. Hautelook often has Becca at rock bottom prices and the cream blushes are amazing!

  17. Mollie

    where can these be purchased? love them!

  18. Mia

    ooooo pretty

  19. many dupes for this color, moreover i cant find it in my country.

  20. Nicole

    SO glad to see some Becca on here Christine! I bought Becca Lame eyeshadow years ago. Love that color. And even though the packaging looks small, it lasts a long time!

    I can’t wait to try Shantung! I already have Lurex :)

  21. I think Shantung looks similar to UD Smog, but less shimmery. I have Smog, but I don’t have Shantung, so I’m just going by how my monitor shows it.

  22. Interesting packaging. Not too sure about paying that hefty price tag.

  23. LNU

    I don’t think I could justify buying this, although it really is very unique and pretty.

  24. Diana

    Looks lovely! I came across this e/s on beautybay for 6.20eur!!! So I have to buy it now, it’s a steal at that price! Even though I’ve so many e/s from mac and ud that are very similar (woodwinked, bronze, tempting, smog, toasted!).. oh well the packaging justifies it hehe :)
