Becca Ombre Nudes Eye Palette ($40.00 for 0.295 oz.) is a set of five, neutral eyeshadows with matte finishes. Those on the hunt for a warmer, muted neutrals in strictly matte finishes may like this one. All five shades had decent or better pigmentation with softer, silkier textures, where only one was on the powdery side. Unsurprisingly, the shades are more dupable than not, so if you already have your favorite neutral palette, I don’t think this is going to be a must-have.

Ombre Nudes #1 is a light-medium peach with warm, orange undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff with a soft, silky texture that blended really easily on the skin. It wore well for seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ombre Nudes #2 is a medium brown with soft, warm yellow undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a soft, silky texture that was a smidgen powdery. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me before creasing. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ombre Nudes #3 is a muted, medium-dark brown with a hint of taupe and a subtle, yellow undertone. It had a mostly matte finish. The color had decent color payoff with a soft, blendable texture that made it more buildable in practice. It showed signs of fading after seven and a half hours. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ombre Nudes #4 is a dark brown with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color coverage with a silky, smooth texture that was easy to work with. It wore well for seven and a half hours before fading. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

Ombre Nudes #5 is a dark, richer brown with warm, red undertones and a matte finish. It was the most pigmented shade in the palette, but it was also the most powdery, so it applies better in two thin layers (built-up) rather than all at once. It was a little harder to blend as well. It stayed on for seven and a half hours on me. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

This looks to be a lovely neutral/nude palette and would be perfect for someone newer to makeup or for someone who’s been living on a mountain peak in Mongolia for the last 15 years and is now back in civilization and wants to get into makeup again but for a lot of us, this is pretty redundant. The shadows look lovely, though, and for anyone who doesn’t like glitter and who also finds 12 or 10 neutrals all in one palette a bit too much to get their head around (I’ll confess, I’m often this way), this palette would be ideal. Great workshorse/work basic palette. If I were new to makeup, I’d buy it.

LOL! The plight of having so many neutral palettes to choose from.

I wonder if we’ll see a total shift to bold, bright eyeshadows for a few years and we’ll long for the days of neutral palettes again.

Pretty much sums up my feelings. I’ve banned myself from buying any more primarily neutral pallets for awhile. Too much brown in my collection.

I think I use this palette at least 3 times a week, since ever I got it. Is super handy, the shades are neutral enough to combine them with anything and makes a great understanded nude eye, specially usefull when binging over bright loud lipsticks.

I actually like this palette better than Naked Basics. I find it to be a bit powdery, but the shadows blend more easily and are less prone to giving me a muddy look if I don’t blend them just right. Plus, you get full-sized shadows with this one, which makes it a better value, especially if you can snag it during a sale.

I can pass on this but they are beautiful shades. I’d rather splurge on a Becca soufflé! Christine, what nail color are you wearing?

It’s Guerlain’s new summer shade… I want to say it is called Ocean Blue, but I don’t recommend it (I’ll review it in full, but I didn’t want anyone to get too excited about it, lol).

I have been wondering how this one would do for a while. It just seems a bit over priced for what it is to me. I’m well stocked in the neutral palette matte category and recently added Kat Von D ‘s Shade and Light palette (which I quite like). Think I will be passing on this one. 🙂

I swatched this a few weeks ago, and I really liked it. However, since the Kat von D palette has since been released, I think that’ll be a better buy. If I travelled a lot, or needed a smaller palette to carry around, it would probably be a better choice, but I rarely bother to touch-up these days.

I’m sure I have all these in my stash somewhere but this still looks like a great palette. The swatches look nice and buttery. I need to check out a Becca palette asap!

I guess I don’t see the point of this. The shades are different from each other, granted, but as a range of shades, they’re too close. With a slight shift in tone of the two middle/medium ones and the next darker one you could reduce the set to 3 colors and get the same effect with blending on the eye. If the lightest one had been lighter than skin tone (for those of us with that skin-tone range) then you could have justified 4 colors by turning that one into a highlighter, but otherwise … meh. And again sooooo warm. The set would work for me, but it ignores all the women with cool enough skin to look ill with such yellowy browns.

Now, if they had done something unique like retaining the precise steps from light to dark while shifting color on the spectrum as they changed tone, and retaining the same degree of desaturation, or “brownish” tone in each color, that would have been cool, and much more useful for creating eye looks outside the palette, with other colors you already own. For example, start with a warm yellow-based light (cream), a yellow-orangish tan medium-light, a coral-ish brown medium, a red-clay medium dark and a wine brown dark — more limited rainbow, less ombre. And then they could do a cool-color version by starting with the red (pale flesh pink) as the light and moving through to moody indigo as the darkest color.

I may have had too much coffee this morning.

I could see this working a lot like the Naked Basics range – easy to incorporate with other products you own as well as wearable on their own (assuming you want warmer neutrals, of course). I also see it working for anyone who has trouble blending more contrasting shades (it’s really hard to not blend these!).

I personally like the subtle differences. I don’t always like a stark contrast, and find this sort of spectrum provides a “clean” look. I do, however, wish this was more neutral in tone; just because it’s brown, it doesn’t make it a “neutral”!

I really like it lol I’m a sucker for good brown eye-shadows, and this is pretty and matte!! My poor wallet. Another item added to my shopping list lol

I’ve had this palette for a few months now. I really like it! I’m a huge fan of nudes though and wear them almost every day, so I have several nude palettes.

I’ve bought this palette and the original Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette months ago during an Ulta 20% sale. I’m dark skinned so it really serves as an ultra neutral, matte palette mainly for crease and brow bone highlighter use. I call it my “supplemental”palette and I use it to add dimension to my eye shadow looks from other palettes and single e/s.

It’s lovely to hear that this works on darker skin, too, even if it is more for crease/brow bone – nice to have them together.

I use this often. I like that I can line, touch up brows and even contour my face with it too. Being so fair, I wish there as an ivory, but, I have plenty of those 🙂

Just imagine if this palette came out few years a little early! I got this palette even though I have a ton of “neutral” palettes, because not every one of them has these, not too cool or not too warm just perfect shades of matte, natural shading colors for the eyes! All the ones I have have way to red and warm. I like it more than the Naked Basics palette because this just goes well with any other palette (even the non neutral ones) to help blend out the colors… Really a great addition if anyone needs the sort of fool-proof neutral matte shades for their existing colorful, shimmery palettes.

I love this palette. I am a freelance hair and makeup artist and use this on almost all my brides as a transition shade or a neutral smokey eye. I even use it as contour powder for the face.

The darkest shade looks like an AMAZING eyebrow powder! LOL

But, NAY for another neutral palette! TOO MUCH choices out there with better quality for this. Come on, Becca. Really? LOL

I’m NC 35 and would love recommendations for a neutral, matte eye palette Christine. I’m a total eyeshadow newb, like for years I only owned MAC Woodwinked lol. But last fall I got the UD Pulp Fiction palette and now use it to soften my eyeliner or for my-eyes-but-better looks. As a beginner I’m confused about which neutral palettes to get and which are higher quality in terms of the usual requirements (finely milled, buttery, creamy). So far I’m eyeing the KVD Shade + Light and MAC Nordstrom Naturals palettes.

I have this palette I don’t you them as your traditional eyeshadow but to contour with, I have dark skin and the deepest shade is the perfect contour shade. It gives me a natural shadow

I’m glad to see your review as I’ve been thinking about getting this. The peachy lean of the shades suits me. And I like smaller five shade palettes like this. On the wishlist it goes!

I fell in love with this palette when I first set eyes on it last year and I keep telling myself I am going to buy it but I have purchased other new palettes/products except this one (because it’s not limited edition so I figure I have some time to get my hands on it) but I will eventually purchase it because my heart feels like I can’t live without it.

I’ve been looking at all the matte palettes trying to figure out which go get. I’m an NC 30-35, leaning towards more of a C30-35. What would you recommend? This, the KVD or the UD or something else? I don’t have many mattes in my collex (maybe 3) so I’m trying to fill in the gaps and found out my stash w some good matte workhorse type shades. Thanks so much Christine!

Maybe the Kat Von D – I’m not sure which Urban Decay one you’re referring to, so if you could clarify, I could be more helpful there 🙂

I think this is too light for NC30/35 really.

I have this palette and I love it. I actually chose this over my Naked palette and sold it just because I get overwhelmed by the number of shades in that palette. This is easier to use and less confusing for someone who doesn’t have the luxury of time to choose between colours. A no-brainer palette for me.

I wish they’d do Ombre Smokes or greens – I’d be a happy camper if they do. 🙂
