#TBTBeauty with Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Eyeshadow Quad in Bora Bora

Happy Thursday!

I'm taking a few minutes to myself and thought I would go ahead and get a quick post up for you. It's been a while since I've shared a #TBTBeauty post with you, largely in part because I've gotten into a groove of postings and skipping Thursdays. Since I'm here, let's go for one today!

If you're not familiar with the project, let me briefly fill you in! I am guilty of always pushing older products aside as I get new ones in my stash, and this throwback series is a way for me to revisit older products that I haven't used in awhile. It's also been a great way for me to decide if I really need to hold on to that eyeshadow palette any longer or if I can finally let it go.

Today's #TBTBeauty product is the Bora Bora eyeshadow quad by Be a Bombshell Cosmetics.

I actually forgot I had this eyeshadow quad until I was packing up all my makeup for the move. In truth, I'm not entirely sure where I got it from as I don't recall purchasing it myself. It may be been part of an Ipsy bag when I had the subscription quite some time ago.

As described by Be A Bombshell Cosmetics, the colours in this quad are cocoa brown, bright teal, rust orange, and tawny brown.

I'm not sure why I've never really used these eyeshadows before! This is the colour payout I found when using a light hand without any real build-up. You can definitely come up with a more intense look if you wanted to build it up more! For the $9 price tag, the eyeshadows also apply surprisingly well and blend out beautifully!

While I've never been to Bora Bora specifically, I have been to Tahiti and Moorea and can certainly see how French Polynesia inspired the shades in this quad!

I'm so glad that I revisited this palette, and I'm going to have to keep Be A Bombshell Cosmetics on my radar! There are several other destination- themed eyeshadow quads I now have my eye on along with a few other products I want to pick up and try out.

Are there any specific Be A Bombshell Cosmetics products you recommend that I try or to avoid? I'd love to hear what you think of the brand! Also, what older products have you added back into your beauty rotation lately? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!

  1. Love the pop of teal you used! I always want to wear teal but it never looks right on me!

  2. I used to love Be A Bombshell when I first subscribed to Ipsy, but after getting a few great products, I got a bad, like really smelly, mascara that BAB didn't want to replace so it left a bad taste in my mind about them. Truth be told, I don't know if they exist any more! But I love that green/aqua shadow on you! It looks fab with your brown eyes. I bought a green NYX shadow at Ulta recently that I thought was going to be a deep forest or maybe olive, but it turned out to be light green, not what I wanted. Back it goes! I bought the Huda Emerald Obsessions so I hope I will get up the courage to wear aqua and bright green shadows.

  3. I love to stash hunt so this post is very relatable to me. I did have a lot of BAB from subscriptions but I never bought any myself. I like their cream blush stick. You look good in that teal.

  4. That's also my goal for myself, revisit my old palettes and get creative again with makeup. I like the pop of color! And I like your chocker top too

  5. That is a nice quad with colors that look amazing on your eyes

  6. I got this in some beauty box or the other as well. I wish I could pull off that blue on my skintone - it looks fabulous on you!

  7. I usually go for teal liners but this is a fun shadow look!

  8. That color set looks amazing on you! I have also been pulling out some older eyeshadows lately after forgetting about them for a long time.

  9. That teal looks great on you! I've also been trying to add some older palettes to my makeup rotation lately. I've definitely been neglecting some products.

  10. I love this look and I actually have this oldie so I am totally going to give this a shot! Thanks for the inspiration!

  11. I am digging this color combo! Teal isn't a color you see often and I don't know's beautiful.

  12. This is so pretty on you and now I want to play with colors on my eyes! LOL!
