Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow
Last year when Jaclyn announced her collaboration with Becca, fans all over the world rushed online or to their local Sephora to pick up the limited edition Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop. The limited edition shade was such a hit that Becca decided to make it a permanent part of their collection. Champagne Pop was a highlighters junkies dream, with its luxuriously soft texture and soft, sparkly shade that was suitable for almost all skin tones.
Fast forward to just over a month ago and Jaclyn announced a new collaboration with Becca. I predicted the company would be launching the popular shade of Champagne Pop in the other two formats; Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured and Shimmering Skin Perfector liquid simply because that was what was available in the other permanent shades.
Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured is a nice subtle version of the popular shade Champagne Pop.
While I was correct on that front I couldn’t have predicted the extent of Jaclyn’s collection as well as the beauty of the entire collection.
The Champagne Glow collection was launched a few weeks ago with a very glamorous New York party and a limited quantity of the new products for pre sale (which sold out in record time)
As predicted, on offer were the two new formats of Champagne Pop highlighter but in addition to this two new Limited Run products were launched.
The crown in the Jewel of the Champagne Glow collection is the Champagne Glow Face Palette. The palette features five face products in a variety of finishes and shades. Included in the palette is the original Champagne Pop highlighter along with a brand new shade Prosecco Pop.
Prosecco Pop is Jaclyn’s response to the issue facing ladies with darker complexions; that is, that Champagne Pop often looked a little light or ashy on these skin tones. Prosecco Pop is a gorgeous true gold highlighter that looks wonderful on light to dark skinned girls. Those with porcelain skin may fin that the highlighter is a little dark or may cast a yellow hue on the skin.
Also featured in the palette are three completely new blush shades. Pamplemousse is a bright pink coral, this blush is super soft and pigmented and on my NC20 skin is fairly bright and easy to over use. Amaretto is a deep, warm shade which can be used as a bronzer or all over face powder to deepen and warm up the complexion. Rose Spritz is the stand out blush shade in the palette, its super shimmery finish makes it more suitable as a blush topper rather than a blush (unless you’re a shimmer queen) The pretty pink shade is infused with champagne shimmer and is meant to pair up with the two highlighter shades.
Left to right; Champagne Pop, Prosecco Pop, Pamplemousse, Amaretto, so Spritz.
In addition to the face palette, an eyeshadow palette was also released as part of the pre sale. While I personally enjoyed the palette there reportedly was an issue with the manufacturing of the palette which caused the company (at the request of Jaclyn) to delete the product from the collection. While many consumers and die hard Jaclyn fans must be disappointed in the decision, the gross inconsistencies in the texture of the palettes meant that some consumers were being “ripped off” of their money.
Personally I found the palette mostly smooth and easy to work with. I am assuming that my palette (which i kindly received as a PR sample) was one of the good ones.
Watch the in depth video for a possible eye shadow palette dupe.
While the eyeshadow palette will no longer be available, the Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Face Palette and Shimmering Skin Perfectors should be hitting Australian shelves early July.
