As many of you already know, I purchased the Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Palette a few days ago when a limited amount were released. This Limited Edition palette officially launches on May 26th, so I wanted to let you know if you need it.
The short answer is “YES, you absolutely need this palette”. Here is the long answer:
THE PACKAGING: The packaging is gorgeous. I love the white and gold and the palette feels very sturdy, which I appreciate. It was actually a lot “thicker” than what I was expecting. I also enjoy the huge mirror. The only thing I don’t like about the packaging is the mirroring around the products. Mine is already covered in fingerprints.
THE HIGHLIGHTERS: If you don’t own any Becca Cosmetics highlighters, here is what you need to know: they are incredibly buttery, smooth, and NOT very subtle. If you are looking to “glow from within” – these are not your highlighters! The only negative that I have experienced with Becca highlighters is that they shatter easily. If you do not already own Champagne Pop, it is a gorgeous peachy/pink color that is flattering on any skin-tone. Jaclyn Hill did a great job creating a shade that works for so many people. Prosecco Pop leans more warm and more gold. I actually prefer Prosecco Pop on my medium skin-tone and think it will be the perfect highlighter for summer.
THE BLUSHES: Honestly, I was not sure how I was going to like these blush colors. My first impression was that Amaretto looked like a bronzer, Rose Spritz looked like a blush topper, and Pamplemousse looked like clown blush. However, I am happy to report that I was WRONG. All 3 of these are gorgeous, incredibly wearable, and flattering. I’ve heard a few people say that they use Amaretto as a contour shade, but it is the most gorgeous matte blush shade on my skin. I would personally buy this palette just for this blush alone. I was absolutely shocked at how pigmented Rose Spritz is. I was worried it would be a glittery blush topper but it looks gorgeous on it’s own. A few people have said it looks similar to Orgasm by Nars and I would have to agree. I think this will be a very popular shade. Pamplemousse is absolutely stunning but you have to be careful – it is VERY pigmented. Each time I’ve worn this blush I’ve had to use my Makeup Geek Face Buffer Brush to blend out the blush.
THE PRICE: This palette costs $52 and is valued at $136. I think that $52 is a VERY fair price for this palette. Besides the size of the pans, I can think of very few palettes I own that I will honestly wear and love every product in the palette.
THE REST: I love watching YouTubers and “Beauty Gurus”. Watching YouTubers like Jaclyn Hill is what started me on this makeup-loving-journey. For me, I find it hard not to root for Jaclyn Hill. She *seems* so genuine (and I truly think she is). It’s fun to purchase a product and know that you are supporting someone who you genuinely like. I would highly recommend that you get this palette! If you aren’t able to get your hands on this palette you can purchase Champagne Pop here.
