Here's your first look at Becca's first-ever eyeshadow palette (and it already has a waiting list)

Holy mother of shimmer.

19 Sep 2018

Hold onto your highlighters, glow lovers; the brand that brought us backlight priming filter, champagne pop and one of the best dewy foundations we've ever tried, is delving into a new category.

Becca Cosmetics is releasing an eyeshadow palette on October 1st (only two weeks away!) and hot damn, those are some HAWT shades with even hotter finishes.

'Volcano Goddess' features 12 eyeshadow colours in total, ranging from a deep shimmering blue in 'midnight sapphire' to a 'gilded' gold and earthy 'red rock'.

As the brand known for lighting up complexions with dewy, high-shine products, it's no surprise only three shades have matte finishes, while the nine others are either 'shimmer' or 'molten metallic'.

This is the first time Becca has released an eye-specific product, with Global Ambassador & Style Director, Kelly Cole, telling GLAMOUR: "This launch is a little off the cuff for Becca. It's new, different and exciting."

The name 'Volcano Goddess' doesn't just come from the earthy, fiery shades you'll find inside, but the formula also contains black tourmaline, a natural mineral crystal that's formed in volcanoes.

As we swatched the shades for the very first time, it was love at first texture. These eyeshadows have the same buttery feel as the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder (which won for best highlighter in our 2018 Beauty Power List), gliding onto the skin with a satisfying trail of colour left behind.

Kerry says the colours can be used either wet or dry, but either way you apply it, they pack a punch. The shimmer and metallic shades have the high-level of glow you'd expect, looking as wet and delicious as the already best-sellers from the brand. Our favourites? Lava, a bronze with the most beautiful metallic finish, Red Rock, a red that anyone could wear, and Hematite, a shimmery grey that's just begging to be turned into a smoky eye.

Becca's Global Makeup Ambassador, Nikki Wolff, gives this handy tip for working with the palette: "When using the dark colours or creating a smoky eye, trace the edges of your look with a bronze shade for a smoother transition to the skin."

Retailing for £38, the palette already has a and based on our sneak peek and swatching, we'd say it's well worth getting in line.
