The beauty world has been insanely buzzing recently, with the launch of the new Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. Palette contents aside, the launches in both the UK and US, both instore and online have also been going a little crazy – it is sold out most places, and was incredibly hard to get hold of. However, my Nanna was recently holidaying in Las Vegas, and luckily for me, she was there during the Sephora instore launch of the palette, and so, she very, very kindly hauled my Grandad around various different Sephoras to track down my very own palette. I couldn’t have been more excited!
I first stumbled across Becca highlighters whilst watching a Zoella You Tube video, where she mentioned one of the Shimmering Skin Perfectors in Moonbeam, which after watching how luminous it made Zoe’s skin, and with highlighters being greatly coveted for in the beauty world, I just had to purchase, and fell in love with.
Now, this fabulous collaboration between Becca Cosmetics and You Tuber Jaclyn Hill is a collection of all things Champagne Glowy. This is a limited edition face palette, which arrives in luxurious white and gold packaging, which is a very sizeable palette, with a large mirror on the underside of the lid and a clasp closure, a little like a clutch!
The Face palette has five different pans – there are three blush shades, including Rose Spritz, a rose gold toned shimmer, Amaretto, the least shimmery, but very dainty light bronze shade, and Pamplemousse, less shimmery than Rose Spritz, but with a much more coral pink pigment to it. With regards to the highlighters, which are larger pans than the blushes, you receive the original Champagne Pop, which is a light peachy high-shimmer, and a new, more golden-toned highlighter, Prosecco Pop.
I found Rose Spritz to be intensely luminous and the pinker of the three blushes, with Amaretto being a beautiful shade useful for a light contour, or to add warmth, dimension and depth, and lastly with the most vivid hue in the palette being Pamplemousse. You can of course mix and match all five shades, as well as layering them up to create your very own personalised glow.
Formula-wise, each one is incredibly pigmented, buttery smooth and soft to the touch, and until you get used to the depth of highlight, I would recommend using them lightly at first. Although, again, it is one of those cosmetics products that looks so beautiful I hardly dare use it, for fear of one day running out. Which leads me to the price, £48, and considering one single, only slightly larger Becca Skin Perfector costs £30, the price was insanely good, and there is absolutely no surprise that this was a UK and US sellout.
There are currently other items which have been released in the Becca x Jaclyn Hill collection, which are still available at Space NK, including the Shimmering Skin Perfector, the Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured Creme and the Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid, as well as some upcoming releases including Shimmering Skin Perfector Champagne Splits, a Shimmering Skin Perfector Slimlight and an Angled Highlighting Brush! Swoon! Keep your peepers peeled for those!
