I adore this look from Becca Cosmetics. The laid-back but classically elegant vibe epitomizes the Australian brand. When I saw the stock photos on Becca’s website, I was immediately smitten–even though peach doesn’t exactly say Angel to me. There are seven items in the collection–the two palettes are Fallen Angel and Enigma. I chose Fallen Angel because although beautiful, the shades in the Enigma palette just don’t look very unique to me. I may regret not purchasing it but not yet. I am not disappointed with this palette as peach and coral my favorite shades to wear on lip and cheeks. However, Becca is a pricy line and the Fallen Angel palette is no exception–we’ll get to that later in the review.
The Fallen Angel palette contains:
- Sunrise lip gloss–a very sheer light peach gloss
- Nectar- a lovely peach lip & cheek cream
- Narcissus Highlighter-perhaps the gem of the palette, a pale gold cream highlighter
- Brush–I used it for the lip gloss
The texture on everything is divine as is typical for Becca. Sunrise is very, very sheer–almost clear, just a slight hint of color. Personally, I prefer a bit more color but on the other hand it’s a great natural weekend look. There is a slight vanilla scent that I like very much. Nectar Lip & Cheek cream is simply beautiful; a pretty peach with such a creamy and definitely non-sticky texture. It can be applied lightly for a slight flush or layered for more color. I adore this shade. Narcissus is a gorgeous pale gold highlighter that feels more like a powder on. It is not glittery or over the top–a lovely soft glow. Perhaps this is where the Angel title originates? Contrary to other reviews I’ve read, I like the brush that is included. I used it for the lip gloss– I prefer to use my fingers or a skunk brush for cream blushes and cream highlighters.
Here is a look featuring the Fallen Angel palette. I’m also wearing Becca Brocade eye shadow (separate review coming soon).
Packaging: brown rubber palette, full mirror, brush included
Quality: this is where Becca never disappoints. The texture of all the items in the palette are wonderful.
Value: the palette retails for $45 and each pot is only 1.3 grams whereas a regular blush is 3 grams. Palettes are usually a good value b/c you get more product for the money, the Fallen Angel palette is actually more expensive. I purchased this for 20% off at the Becca Friends & Family sale so that makes it more palatable.
Best For: anyone who likes a natural chic look, those partial to peach tones. This palette works beautifully with a smoky eye–such as the Enigma eyeshadow palette within the collection.
Overall: I love this palette and the soft natural look it gives. The texture and quality are amazing. I would not consider it a great value but for me, I am very happy with it and don’t regret purchasing it.
