Be a Bombshell Bora Bora Eyeshadow Quad Review+Swatches

Be a Bombshell Eyeshadow Quads boast a "high pigmented, long lasting formula for all day wear. Enjoy the convenience and versatility of creating many different looks from our eyeshadow quads". There are four color combos available; my review features Bora Bora. Each quad contains 4.8 grams (.17 oz) and sells for $16. I received this eyeshadow quad in my March Ipsy Bag. Be a Bombshell does not test on animals. This product was made in China.

Be a Bombshell's Bora Bora Qua comes in a round black compact. The flip top features a window into the product. A sexy lady leaning against the letter B adorns the compact. The four eyeshadows are separated into shark tooth shaped pans. The shade name can be found on the back of the compact.
Be a Bombshell's Bora Bora Quad is excellent! I was blown away by the awesome quality of this eyeshadow palette. All four shes are super pigmented with great textures. These eyeshadows are very easy to work with - they blend very nicely. There is some mild fallout involved, mainly from just one shade. Color payoff is so rich, but if you want an even bolder look these mineral eyeshadows can be used wet. Worn over a primer, I get great wear from Be a Bombshell's Bora Bora Quad - no creasing with minimal fading for eight hours or more. I highly recommend using a primer or base with these super pigmented eyeshadows, as they tend to stain the skin.
Rock Bottom is described as a "burnt coral-metallic copper with shimmer". I'd call it a metallic burnt orange. This shade is fiery and intense - a gorgeous highly pigmented shadow.
Risky Business is a "shimmering golden brown", which is a perfectly accurate description. I love shades like this one - so flattering and versatile.
Bora Bora is a "teal blue with a hint of shimmer". Wow, this quad's namesake is so beautiful. A gorgeous, mostly blue teal with a satin finish. Bora Bora is slightly drier and harder than th other three shades, though its still quite good. Bora Bora is the one shade in this palette that causes fallout.
Starlet is a "shimmery chocolate brown". Once again, an apt description. Starlet is a mid-toned, warm brown with a satin finish, though the occasional fleck of gold shimmer. This is a great basic shade that helps pull the three brighter colors. 
Be a Bombshell's Bora Bora Quad is fantastic. All four eyeshadows boast strong pigmentation, easy application, and excellent wear. Each eyeshadow, which is also available individually for $14 a pop, is gorgeous in their own way. I think I'll be using this eyeshadow quad pretty often this summer. I'm thoroughly impressed by this quad and I do recommend it if the colors appeal to you.
