Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette Swatches
I have wanted to try the Becca and Jaclyn Hill collab highlighter "Champagne Pop" for quite some time now, but have never brought myself around to actually purchasing it. However, when I found out about this face palette coming out that would not only include the highlighter that I had been lusting over, but 1 additional highlighter and 3 blushes, I knew I HAD to have it!
This palette is stunning! I am always a fan of a beautiful highlight, but I especially love them in the summer to add that shimmery glow to the skin that everyone loves to have. All 5 products in this palette are extremely pigmented and if you want to glow, you've come to the right place. Now with that being said, these highlighters are definitely not for those of you who are looking for a more subtle glow. With one dip of your brush and one swipe on your cheekbones, you will look like you were just kissed by the sun!
Here is a swatch of the two highlighters in the palette. So first we have the star - Champagne Pop! I mean what can I even say about this highlighter? This is a beautiful champagne color (duh!) that has a neutral undertone. The shimmer to it is "out of control" and in just the couple shorts weeks I have had it, it has become my most reached for highlighter!
As far as Prosecco Pop is concerned, this is a really gorgeous true golden highlight. For me specifically, Prosecco Pop does not compliment my skin tone very well as a highlighter, but I have used it as an eyeshadow and am beyond impressed. The pigmentation allows this to be one of the most reflective and golden shades I have. I would even say it is better than my previous fav gold shadow "Half Baked" by Urban Decay.
Now here are the blushes. The first shade is by far my favorite! Rosè Spritz is just gorgeous! I mean I swatch this and feel like I just can't even handle how pretty it is. This is a beautiful rosy pink color with a gold shimmer (not to be confused with glitter. There is absolutely no chunky glitter in this blush or in the highlighters. Just a pure shimmery sheen!). Now if you are looking to take your glow to the next level, honey this is YOUR shade!! I mean ... I just have no words. It's just pure MAGIC!
The next shade is Amaretto, this a wonderful neutral blush that I have found myself pairing with some of my bolder looks because it adds a pop of color to your cheeks without competing with a bolder eye or lip.
Lastly the color Pamplemousse. This color is definitely similar to Rosè Spritz, but does not have that golden shimmer. Instead, there is a subtle sheen to this blush which I have paired with my more natural day to day looks. It gives a beautiful rosy pink tone to the cheeks and mimics the look of a natural flush, which makes it very wearable.
Now, I know with this Becca x Jaclyn Hill Collection there were other products including an eyeshadow palette, but I didn't purchase anything else from the collection. When I first looked at this palette (especially after using Prosecco Pop as a shadow color), being the rebel that I am, I was inspired to do an eye look with it!
1. I started out by priming my lids with a white base, I used Nyx Jumbo Pencil in "Milk". I chose a white base because I really wanted to make sure the pinks and golds popped and were true to color!
2. I then applied Prosecco Pop to the inner 1/3 of my lid and lower lashline. I made sure to pack this on well so I just used my finger.
3. Rosè Spritz was applied to the middle 1/3 of my lid and lower lashline, again I packed this with my finger as well as I feel applying these shades get the best color payoff this way.
4. I applied a mixture of Pamplemousse and Amaretto to this outer 1/3 of the lid and lower lashline using, you guessed it, my finger.
5. With the only shadow I used that was not in the palette, I took the Wet n Wild single eyeshadow in Panther (any matte black will do) on a pencil brush ( I used a MAC 219 brush) and applied it to the outer V of my eye. I also brought it into the crease for some added dimension and definition.
6. I blended this out with the mineral blush shade, Amaretto on a fluffy blending brush (I used a MAC 286 brush).
7. I add some black winged liner to the top lid and also lined the first half of my water line with the same black gel liner (from Physician's Formula).
8. On the other half of my water line, I added a bronze liner from Wet n Wild named "Pros and Bronze" and made sure there was a smooth transition between the black and gold.
9. Champagne Pop was added to the inner corner and brow bone for highlight.
10. Mascara was added and that was it! Here is the completed look!
I was so happy with how this look turned out and try to remind myself all the time that makeup is meant to be fun and playful. You never know what you can create when you think outside the box!
