Apres Ski Glow Collection

Becca Apres Ski Glow Collection Eye Lights Palette ($45.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes seven eyeshadows inspired by the brand’s famous powder highlighters, just designed “specifically for the eyes.” I think that one of the strengths of Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed highlighters is their texture–that creamy, smooth, and velvety-feel that is almost effortless when it comes to blending and diffusing on the skin. That doesn’t exist in this palette; the textures are dry, powdery, and prone to sheering out. The eyeshadows only adhered decently to the lid with a dampened brush but were barely-there washes when I attempted to use them dry. When I tried using them dry over eyeshadow primer, they were still miserable to work with.

Pearl

Pearl is a pale, white gold with warm undertones and a pearly sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a moderately dusty texture that was prone to sheering out to semi-sheer coverage at best. This shade lasted for four and a half hours on me before fading significantly.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is a light-medium peachy p ink with warm, golden shimmer and a metallic finish. The consistency was dry and sheered out as soon as I started to blend it out, which reduced its coverage from semi-opaque to a veil of gold (no peach/pink was apparent) when I applied to my lids with a dry brush. I was able to get more out of it using a dampened brush. It lasted for five hours before fading noticeably.

Moonstone

Moonstone is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It seemed to have good color payoff initially, but as soon as I started to blend the edges, the drier, powdery texture just sheered out the color to semi-sheer coverage. I noticed that it seemed to “melt” on the lid but fade very quickly (five hours) from there.

Opal

Opal is a medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, but it was impossible to maintain the coverage as the color did not stick to the skin and sheered out as soon as I started to diffuse the edges. This shade lasted for five hours before fading significantly.

Ingredients

Topaz

Topaz is a medium-dark gold with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had rich pigmentation, and it actually applied better than a lot of other shades as it did not seem to be quite as dry and felt like it had more binder in it, which helped it adhere better to bare skin. The color lasted a bit longer, too, at six and a half hours of wear.

Ingredients

Toasted Marshmallow

Toasted Marshmallow is a medium, golden brown with a soft, copper pearl. It had sheer color payoff that did not build up and barely adhered to the lid–I could almost blow the powder off my arm! It lasted for three hours on my lids before looking patchy and slightly creased.

Ingredients

Hot Cocoa

Hot Cocoa is a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, rosy undertones and a satin sheen. It had good pigmentation that applied decently to the lid, but it was harder to blend out as the texture was dry and on the stiffer side. The eyeshadow wore well for five and a half hours on me.

Yikes. I already knew I wasn’t going to purchase this because it looked so basic and overdone but now your review has sealed the deal. Their quality has gone down a lot lately.

Blelch! Becca really needs to step back from their eyeshadow palette fantasy. 2 awful fails from them is enough already. Their schtick is highlighters, and they do them flawlessly. Those along with some of their very nice lip products are what Becca would do well to stick with.

Oh, Becca, you are capable of SO much better. There’s nothing I like about this palette – the roundness (squares and rectangles work best for me in terms of storing them), the large amount of wasted space and the very unexceptional colours. The fact that quality is also so poor is one more thing that keeps me from wanting this.

I agree. I have decided not to buy any more palettes that aren’t rectangular. Tarte does this all the time and while I love what they make, I can’t afford to store them flat in a drawer. Then what happens it that I put things on top of them and they never see the light of day. I might as well not have them.

Yikes, I’m always skeptical when brands tries to turn their highlighter formula into shadows (remember the Hourglass Modernist shadow disaster?), looks like I was right to be wary. And even if this formula was good, IDK, I think I already have dozens of dupes that are better quality and cheaper

At first glance, I thought this was a highlighter palette (of their shimmering skin perfectors). It is so strange to me that they took that concept, but turned it into an eyeshadow palette, and then didn’t even execute it well. Oh well, easy pass.

This looked like a good, basic collection of shadows. I will be shopping my extensive stash for color dupes. Thanks for the extra cash staying in my wallet.

I expect so much more from Becca. This looks lovely in the pan. That’s about it, apparently. I don’t buy makeup just to look pretty in the pan, and I doubt anyone else does either! Easy pass.

When I first saw this I thought it was a highlighter palette and was skeptical then because what skin tone would be able to wear all of these shades. A Temptalia reader corrected me and I was surprised that they would even try to create an e/s palette with the same names and shades as their highlighters. Now to see it review so poorly is quite sad. I could tell from the eye look that you created that they were a bear to work with. Your blending skills, color composition and placement are always exceptional but these shadows just didn’t work. Thank you for your always timely reviews. I would not have purchased this but had it been a good palette it might have worked for someone just starting out in makeup. Too bad.

I think Becca should just stick to doing blushes and highlighters – they do those well , wereas their eyeshadow range has always been a bit average. This is much poorer than average though and you would think that QC would have picked these errors up.

Thanks christine, I was on the fence about this palette. Seems like a similar issue as the palette they did with jaclyn hill. Their ombre palettes are so good, it’s so disappointing that Becca’s palettes are so hit and miss when they obviously have an eyeshadow formula that is quite good.

Just…wow. This is all kinds of miserable. There are so many great palettes out there for the same money. I also hate the layout. I think there is a lot of wasted space designed to make consumers think they’re getting more for their money.

Question: are the highlighters not safe for eyes? Because I’ve always seen people say they’re great for face and eyes, and have been using mine as eyeshadow since I picked them up!

That’s what I thought! And they look great on the eyes too! I really don’t understand this product, why change the formula at all? Why even make this at all?

Y’know, 10 or so years ago, before I started coming here (and when I had lots less makeup and lots more storage space for it….gee, I wonder if there’s a connection?), I don’t think the packaging would have bothered me and I probably wouldn’t even have noticed it….I’d just look at it and think “Gee, I could use that” or “Nah, those products don’t seem very good” and wouldn’t have thought about the packaging or wasted space at all. So I’ve clearly become more discerning or aware about packaging.

How disappointing. I was lusting after this palette, but I’m so thankful I waited for this review before committing to it. Money saved. Thanks Christine!!!

Wow. Thank you for your reviews. This palette and the Tarte treasure one were the two I planed to purchase this holiday season. Thanks to your reviews I will definitely be saving myself some money and disappointment.

I’d passed on this pallets when I first heard about it having found others I’d rather have. So went it went on sale I decided to pick it up for my sister’s birthday and one for myself as I love the aesthetics of the compact But then I hesitated coming here first to look at the review So thankful as always -somehow missed the review when initially posted here. I will still order one for myself just to depot and use as a compact But I have been saved the embarrassment of gifting such a deplorable set of useless eyeshadow. As always love the content and am so grateful for all your hard work!
