I was super excited this past weekend to get my hands on the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne palettes! Honestly, I figured I would probably pick them up at some point once the newness died down, if there were any still available. I already have several Becca highlighters, and I didn’t really need another palette with shades similar to some I have on hand.
But then we went for our regular shopping trips at Sephora in Shreveport and Bossier City. When I saw them in person, they were just SO beautiful that Jerry told me I should go ahead and get them; I’m glad I did! (Thank you Amanda, Jerri, and Cassie!) Make sure to check out the video down below to see the swatches and get more deets!
The packaging of these palettes is simply stunning. They are gold-tone and white, with a classy yet fun confetti-inspired design. The weight is substantial, so they don’t feel “cheap,” and the mirrors inside are of good quality.
The Champagne Face Palette was everything I expected, and more. There are two Shimmering Skin Perfectors (highlighters) in Champagne Pop and Prosecco Pop; and three blushes, Rose Spritz, Amaretto, and Pampelmousse. Rose Spritz has a shimmer, and the others are matte.
The colors were buttery soft and very pigmented, even the shimmers. While Jaclyn stated in her YouTube video that the Prosecco Pop may be too yellow on light skin, it looked stunning on Cassie at Sephora in Bossier City, not at all yellow. I thought it looked equally beautiful on my medium skin, as well.
In the photo and video, I’m wearing Rose Spritz blush and Prosecco Pop as highlight. I love the combination so much, that I want to keep using the same colors. But I know when I try the others, I’ll love them too! Decisions, decisions…
As for the eyeshadow palette, I’m only glad I got it so I could tell you to check out a store display before purchasing. I really, really wanted to love it, but honestly, I was not impressed.
Don’t get me wrong, Jaclyn did a FABULOUS job of picking the colors, they are gorgeous. But the quality is substandard, especially for Becca. It’s not terrible, just make sure to try it before you buy it. (Read more about the eyeshadow palette here.)
The eyeshadow palette is disappointing, I’ve read. I think they already pulled it out from the market because it’s sub-par from the usual Becca products. The face highlighting products look great on you, though!
Awww, thank you so much! And, yep, they got discontinued quick, I noticed when I was swatching for our video how powdery they were (see our post at http://beauxbeautyblog.com/?p=3609), and it really irked me that the shadow palette was made in China. I was so sad because the colors were beautiful! But, I’m glad the face palette was up to standard, since that’s what I was looking forward to most- no one does highlighters like Becca! 🙂
