BeccaxJaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Review

Becca and Jaclyn Hill recently introduced their latest collaboration - the Champagne Glow palette - and I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The palette has three beautiful shades in white, a peachy golden tone, and a copper. The two warmer colors have been previously released on their own but the white highlight is a new shade exclusive to this collaboration. Becca is always amazing when it comes to highlighters and the shades always give such great coverage and coloring.

When myself and Faith heard that the palette was released early in our local Sephora store we bolted there after work. I was super happy with the pigmentation after swatching, but did find it to be not as creamy feeling as the full size. I also feel that the pans are a bit smaller - the NARS kabuki brush seems to be the perfect counterpart. The gold packaging is gorgeous and the three colors would be great for on-the-go. I see this more as a travel size of your favorite BECCA highlighters.





Pearl The first shade (and limited edition one) is a frosted white coloring. It's perfect for lighter skin tones and looks beautiful as a strong highlight. I tend to use it on the inner corner of my eye, on my cupids bow, and on my cheek bones - sometimes on top of Champagne Pop - if I'm wanting something with a little more intensity. Most times this coloring can look a bit cheap or frosty but somehow Becca makes it look super glamorous! 

Champagne Pop I already own this shade in the full size so I knew what I was getting myself into. This Jaclyn Hill highlighter is seriously THE BEST and always gives my skin a great glow. I apply it all over my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, and on my brow bones with a large fluffy brush.

Blushed Copper This medium-dark coppery shade has been demo-ed as a blush overlay for deeper skin tones, so I was interested on how I would use it. For me this works best as an eyeshadow to complement my all-over glow with the two other colors. However, I was very surprised to see that it wasn't as shimmery as I had anticipated. Out of all of the shades this one was probably the least of my favorite - but it is still a beautiful addition to the palette.






Overall I think that this palette makes for a great addition to my collection and I can't wait to use it throughout the seasons! I think this would look great in Summer on top of tanned skin, and it is a great value for the price.

Have you tried the Champagne Glow palette yet? If so, what are your thoughts?
