The limited-edition Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection was highly anticipated by all! Once I found out the collection was being released online on May 26, I set my alarm for 12pm and ordered immediately! Acting like a crazy woman paid off because this entire collection sold out within the first hour! If you don’t already know about Jaclyn Hill, she’s a very popular beauty YouTuber and is one of my favorite girls to watch! She’s extremely knowledgeable about products, genuine in her approach, artistically talented and just absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend you subscribe to her channel! I already own a full-size Becca Champagne Pop highlighter (and love it), so I knew I wanted to purchase the limited-edition Face Palette and Eyeshadow Palette to add to my collection! If you didn’t get your hands on the products you wanted from this limited-edition set, have no fear! The full collection will be available in Sephora stores for purchase on June 16th!
The Face Palette has two shades of highlighter and 3 shades of blush to illuminate your entire face look! The formula of the highlights are extremely pigmented and can be layered to create an intense glowing effect. They are both extremely long-lasting as well! The original Champagne Pop is a very peachy-toned, champagne colored highlight, while the new Prosecco Pop is a light gold, warm-toned shimmer. Both are absolutist beautiful and will be a must have for the summer months! The blush shades are Rosé Spritz, Amaretto and Pamplemousse. My current favorite way to wear these shades is to take Pamplemousse on my cheeks and Rosé Spritz right on the apples. I find that because Rosé Spritz is a shimmery blush, it really looks beautiful dusted on the front of whatever blush color you’re wearing to bring out that all over face glow, without emphasizing pores, as some shimmery blushes tend to do when applied all over the cheek area. These blushes are very sheer in formula and look beautiful layered on top of each other. They aren’t the longest lasting blushes I own, but I would consider them to last about 5 hours until fading, which isn’t terrible! I also think the shades are going to look really beautiful on every skin-tone, which is awesome that Becca and Jaclyn Hill took that into consideration when choosing these colors!
The Eye Palette includes the shades Chardonnay, Champagne Toast, Cordial, Cognac and Bordeaux! This palette of both shimmer and matte shades is very versatile, making it wearable for daytime and nighttime looks! To be completely honest, these are not the best quality of eyeshadows I own. Yes, they are pigmented and blend out beautifully on the eye, but I noticed they fade pretty quickly even with a primer. My favorite color is Champagne Toast because it’s a beautiful warm bronze shade (my favorite) and it was unfortunately the most disappointing shadow in this palette. It faded from my eyes within the first couple hours and by the end of the day had completely disappeared. The matte shades are longer lasting in pigmentation and didn’t fade as terribly on my eyes. I am going to keep using this palette and try to find ways to make it work because the colors are so beautiful, but I definitely would recommend other eyeshadow palettes before this one.
If you only want to buy one item from this collection, I would highly recommend the Face Palette. It’s highly pigmented with beautiful shades selected for any skin tone. I think you will really love how this product layers on your skin, making it versatile enough to compliment many makeup looks. This Face Palette will be the perfect traveling companion for summer beach trips when you want your makeup to be pretty and glowy, without having to pack multiple products! Unfortunately, I wouldn’t recommend the Eyeshadow Palette because it just fades so bad! The sheer pigmentation of these shadows just doesn’t work for me. Let me know if you have a primer or special secret to applying these because I truly do want to make them work! Thank you so much for reading this post, leave me a comment below if you have this collection and what your thoughts are on these products!
