The Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette is a limited edition item, and easily the most exciting item of the entire collection released by Becca this past month. I don't usually jump onto getting the newest cool thing as soon as it comes out, but I'm a total sucker when it comes to blushes. So for this palette, I couldn't resist.
I'm one of those people who didn't buy Champagne Pop when it was released last year, so I'm quite excited about getting it in the palette. As soon as I swatched it, I understood the hype - it's a mesmerizing, peachy highlighter The palette also introduces a new highlighter, a little sis to Champagne Pop if you will - and it's called Prosecco Pop. This one is very golden, and would look gorgeous on medium-darker skin tones. On the fairer ladies, I think this would work best on top of another cheek product or mixed with a blush.
The three blush shades are each pigmented. I suggest using a bigger/fluffier brush to apply, such as the RT blush brush. My favourite blush in the palette is Rosé Spritz, on the top left of the palette - the perfect combo of peachy pink and golden shimmah. It reminds me of Nars' Deep Throat or Orgasm, but with a better texture and more shimmer. Amaretto is a warm "nude" blush shade, which is meant to be complementary to many different makeup looks. This one is matte and has a drier texture, which makes it apply less pigmented with a brush than the other blushes. Finally, the shade Pamplemousse is a bright, matte, coral pink. It gives such a nice, fresh "pop" to the cheeks without looking garish.
While the each individual shade in this palette is beautiful on its own, I think the beauty of this product lies in the mixing of the shades. Everything complements each other wonderfully. Mix the two highlighters together, or mix blush & highlighter, or even blushes with each other. Plus, it's great on different skin tones, for day makeup or night makeup.
The packaging is beautiful, of course. The palette has a nice weight, and a gorgeous mirror. You know how some makeup products come with a dinky little mirror? This mirror is not that, it is actually quite big and doesn't distort at all. One tiny, minor detail bothers me about the palette; that the bottom row with Champagne Pop and Prosecco Pop aren't aligned with the top row. It's shifted to the right. Why??
