This by far my favorite BE eye shadow. It is a shimmery sandy-pink color that is just gorgeous on my pale/cool skin. It brightens my eye area and make me appear more awake and looks very natural. I have over a hundred shadows from BE (they're my fav makeup brand) and this is the ONLY shadow that I use a lot, almost daily. Use this with a dark brown liner and deep brown mascara and wow, it just looks very understated and gorgeous.

Nude beach is one of the best base color eyeshadows ever, I've used it for years queen Hellen is the second eye shadow base I love it's more gold.

When I wear this on my eyes, they glow. It brightens my entire face. I absolutely love love love this product. I like it with a little black eyeliner for definition. Buy this eyeshadow, you will not regret it!

Awesome! I used this a lot. When I cant decided what I'm going to do to my face this is my fall back product. Always giving a consistent look and many compliments from it.

This eye shadow is GORGEOUS. Beautiful beige-y pinky silvery tone, and very shimmery. It could be a glittery mess if you apply too much, which is why some people probably don't care for it. But you just have to learn it... I get the tiniest amount on my brush and then tap off the excess, and apply it to my lower lid only, right above the lash line. It brightens my eyes and gives a beautiful, romantic glow. Since you only need so little, it should last a long time. Wish it had a sifter, but still love it and will repurchase.

This is the most glittery, sparkly, shiny shade of sort of dirty champagne/peach in the container. And it's so glittery that it's almost unwearable...ALMOST! But this is one of the best products for using on the tear duct/inner corner. The over-the-top glitter transforms itself into a flattering, illuminating finish that seems like it has its own light source! And, surprisingly, when I press this onto my tear duct area with a small pencil brush, there is no fallout at all. I got a sample of this ages ago from Sephora. So little of the product is needed to brighten the inner corner that I can't imagine how anyone would ever finish up a full sized container. If I ever manage to finish my sample, I think I'll just ask for another sample (while purchasing other products) because the full sized container would just be a waste.

This was a huge disappointment for me.
The colour was so sweet when I sampled it in the store: looked like a very light pinkish grey shimmer tone. When I applied it to my eyelid at home, the pink and grey disappeared and my lids turned into two disco balls. lol... The shimmer was actually glitter with sparkles, and I'm 20 years too old to wear that kinda stuff. Returned it the next day.

I personally love this eyeshadow. If you're worried about fine lines around the eye area, I can understand why you wouldn't like this product, but IMO: if fine lines are an issue for you, then you should know better than to buy sparkly eyeshadows anyway! lol I'm only playing.
But on a serious note: this eyeshadow is amazing. I'll often use it to take a look from natural-daytime to ultra-glam-nighttime. But more often than that-I use it everyday! The only time I'll opt out of using it is if I'm going for a very matte natural look.

Gorgeous gorgeous colour! Hard to exactly describe this shade. It is not quite pink or beige or gold nor silver.. it is a mix of all this. It is visible enough to sweep across the lids on its on. For smokey looks you can use it as a base or under the brow, tear duct, undereye. Very versatile to use and extremely pretty! Has tiny glitter and shimmer which still is wearable for the day. The finish is a slightly nude wet shadow which is definate LOVE! One of my fav eyeshadow as of now

Another great shadow. Can be applied lightly for a day time look or go a little heavier and add other colors for nighttime. Opens up the eyes and make them pop beautifully.

This is so shimmery and pretty! It definitely makes your eyes pop with some brightness. I like using it with a smoky eye to create a shimmery, sultry look. I just wish it wasn't so messy to apply. It is a pigment/powder after all.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Pops the eyes with a sheer wash of brightness like no other shadow I have tried. Can be applied ever so lightly to open the eye area or heavier for a dramatic, evening look. I use this every single day, sometimes with no mascara for the most natural daytime look. Perfect and so inexpensive!

this is my FAVORITE color of eyeshadow from BE. i use this on most of my clients who are looking for a smoky look. i use this as a base. it has a pink tint to it, but not over powering. i would definately buy this again and again, which i have done.

What is wrong with my eyelids, why can't I get the BE shimmery stuff to stay on my eyes? I want to like it, everything about it would be perfect...the color, the shimmery-ness, everything, except for the part about it not staying on no matter how much primer I put on beforehand. Sad.

This is a VERY glimmery shadow. I am not exactly sure how we are supossed to define "glimmer" but the best way I can explain it is that it's like a cross between shimmer and crushed glitter. It is very sparky and is best left for an evening looks and for highlighting (in very small areas!). It's a dusty super light pink glimmer. It is very pretty and super girlie! Fun shade. Would recommend. Would repurchase.

This shadow has me hooked. It is my everyday all over sweep, I cover my entire eyelid to the browbone and then layer on other neutrals for my daytime looks. This product is a primer-necessary eyeshadow, or else you will end up with tons of fallout if you plan on wearing for 6+hours. I use a fluffier, softer brush when I apply so I only get a hint of glimmer, instead of using a stiff brush and getting "sparkle". On days where I am in a rush I can just brush this on the lid and hit the road!
I gave packaging a 4- it sits on my vanity, and I do not travel with it, but I find that I prefer the bigger BE containers so that I can fully load my brushes. Just a quick tap or two into the lid is all you need, since this is a 4-hole opening. However if I didnt have that little peeve, it would be a 5.

I love this eyeshadow! I have used this shade for years, and it continues to be one of my favorites! It is a nice neutral champagne color that I use for the inner corners of my eyes, to highlight my brow bone, or over a darker shade to make it a little lighter and shimmery. If you do not like a lot of shimmer I would stay away, but I love shimmer and this is definitely one of my favorites!

One of BE's most popular glimmers, this shade is universally flattering with it's soft peachy champagne glow. The problem for me is that there is way too much shimmer in this product to really be wearable. It does make a nice highlighter and can be added to a flat lipgloss to create some depth and pretty shimmer. I still reach for this once in a while for an evening look, but Stila Kitten does the same thing in a easier to carry pot. If I was still in my 20s, this would probably get four or five lippies from me.

Too sparkly for this old woman! I am 44 and gave this to my teenage daughter. It looks way better on her than it did on me.

It really is not a warm color at all. It looks greyish in the jar and looks like uncolored shimmer in the lids. It is not really flattering or really unflattering but it makes me look made up. I wanted to give it some color so I scrabed my almost finished Chanel Venus shadow in the jar and mixed, Now it is a nicer nude color. But I would not buy it again. It does not give an especially clean look that I am after.
