Becca X Jaclyn Hill: The Champagne Collection Face Palette

Hi Guys,

I know I'm very late to the Champagne Pop Party, I convinced myself that when this palette first launched I didn't need it. Although the Champagne Pop single highlighter has been on my mind for quite a while. So when Space NK very kindly sent me some vouchers for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, I talked myself into getting the palette, as why not, if I was going to buy Champagne Pop anyway... (See this is also the reasoning that ruins all spending bans...)
 I haven't really tried much from Becca at all apart from a sample product and lots of swatches in store of all their gorgeous highlighters. The Champagne Collection by Becca is a collaboration with the American Makeup Artist and Youtuber Jaclyn Hill. There are various products in the range, which has expanded recently, but the Palette is limited edition and includes exclusive shades. As well as a little sachet sample of the Backlight Priming Filter too.

The packaging for the palette as well is weighty and just as luxurious as the product housed inside. Not only with a massive mirror in the lid, but the whole inside of the palette is made with a really reflective mirrored finish. As well as carrying on the slightly dotty theme from the box, onto the lid of  the palette too. 
 It consists of three blushers, which either have the formulation of the Becca mineral blushers or a luminous finish and two highlighters. All of the formulations have been chosen to give a radiant glow to the skin and to brighten the face. 

Champagne Pop - Of course it couldn't be part of the Champagne Collection without Champagne Pop itself. The highlight is quite peachy in appearance, but once swatched it has a very soft white gold finish. 

Prosecco Pop - Is the warmer golden sister to Champagne, I feel like Prosecco Pop swatched is almost what I imagined Champagne Pop to look like. 

Rose Spritz - This is the only Luminous Blush in the palette and luminous it definitely is. It has a finish that I find is very similar to the highlighters. Though just slightly less intense with the shimmer, the shade is a pretty peach pink, which has an eye catching golden shimmer running through it. 

Amaretto - This may be my favourite shade of the three included, especially coming into the autumnal months. The Mineral Blusher is warm and inviting, its almond tone perfect for everyday use.

Pamplemousse - I think Pamplemousse is the bright fun summer sister to the other two shades, I do find it quite similar to Rose Spritz, but I think its a good almost toned down alternative. It has a matte finish, but the warm coral pink blends beautifully into the skin. 
(Swatches: Left to Right - Prosecco Pop, Champagne Pop, Pamplemousse, Amaretto and Rose Spritz)
All of the finishes to each shade are so easy to work with, as they melt into the skin and blend like a dream. Though they still pack a punch when it comes to the pigmentation, the littlest bit really does go the longest way with these. 

In the UK the palette is available from Space NK for £48, unfortunately its currently out of stock online, however I managed to grab mine in my local store. So keep an eye out as there are still some hidden away!

  5. This looks so dreamy! I´m always discussing with myself if I should buy any of these palettes as well. I think I might wait until December (if they´re even still available then) just so I have a reason (aka my Christmas present to myself). But they´re just too beautiful to miss out on.
