Becca Ombre Nudes Eye Palette Review & Swatches ❤

Hi guys, I'm here to review for you today the Becca Ombre Nudes Eye Palette. I have seen this palette being raved about ever since it came out which is not so long ago. I ordered it from Space NK for quite a high price however, it was worth it. Below are pictures displaying the pigmentation, true shades and the quality of the product swatches without and with a primer. This Becca Eye Palette contains 5 eyeshadows that contains mostly cool toned shades of brown except eyeshadow (1) which is a light dusty peach shade. I apologise If I haven't took an image of the back of the palette but it doesn't say much, just the number of the shades without names.

Whole review of the product:

Packaging: The packaging comes in a dark brown/Sepia colour box with Becca printed on the side. Just like any regular box packaging, it includes the name of the palette and description on the back saying, "Create natural depth and luminous highlight with velvety soft, tone-on-tone ombre nudes. Skin-authentic shades with a range of contrasting undertones enhance and illuminate the eye area for a wide-eyed effect, Green Coffee Oil helps awaken the eyes and smooth the lids, while a built-in priming effect extends the wear of your shadows. These versatile neutrals may be used to create a range of looks, from subtle to bold". The main packaging of the product has a sleek and glossy cover with a wide mirror inside covered with a plastic so that it wouldn't get dirt on it. It also contains 5 eyeshadows size compared  with the MAC single eyeshadows. The way to lock the product and open is a clip-in access and it is very easy and convenient to carry in your makeup bag.
Pigmentation: If the eyeshadows are applied without a primer, it comes off looking like a light shadow however it works best with a primer. One of the eyeshadows (1), when being built for more clarity became quite powdery and can get messy. In contrast with this, the other dark eyeshadows are fine. They do cling onto hairs hence the picture above.
Fragrance: No fragrance
Texture: Buttery, powdery & good quality.
Multi-uses: Except for its main purpose of eyeshadows, this product can be used to create natural contour shadows in your face. depending on skin tone. The eyeshadow (1) and (2) can be used for light skin tones, (2, 3, 4) for tan-mid dark skin tones and (4,5) for dark-ebony dark skin tones.
Audience/Preferable for: Any one
Price: £34.00
Rate: 8/10
Delivery Experience: When I first ordered this product, it was out of stock everywhere. After a week, I found it available in stock at the Space NK website. I had to splurge myself into getting the palette as quickly as possible since it runs out quite quickly. Successfully, getting myself one; it is set to be delivered at my home by Tuesday 30th. I was excited because when the product arrived they provided exactly what estimated time they were going to be delivering the products as well as the name of the delivery guy. Whilst I was opening the package, I found  the eyeshadow that I bought from Laura Mercier but the palette was not there. I became quite disappointed so I rang customer service and told them of what my enquiry is about and they have told me that they do not know when they are going to be delivering the next stock of this product so thus, I waited because it was out of stock again on the website. The day after, I recieved an email explaining that I have got a delivery soon set up to arrive on Thursday, 2nd of October from Space NK. After so, I have received my product.
