Awhile back one of the latest collaborations between Becca and Jaclyn Hill hit shelves. The Champagne Collection Face Palette features 3 blushes and 2 highlighters, all together in white and gold packaging.
I’ve been using this palette for a fair amount now and wanted to share my thoughts (even though this was limited edition).
To start off, the 3 blushes are in the shades Rosé Spritz, Amaretto, and Pamplemousse. I have to say that I’ve used Rosé Spritz (bottom swatch) the most out of the three and it definitely reminds me of Flowerchild. It is a stunning coral shimmery blush and is so smooth and blends so well.
Amaretto (middle swatch) is a neutral terracotta shade of blush that is matte in finish. This the blush I have used the least in the palette but I do like putting it in the hollow of my cheeks. I’ve also used this shade in the crease of my eye to warm up an eye look.
Pamplemousse (top swatch) is the last blush shade and is a vibrant pink coral matte. This blush is super pigmented but still blends out really easily. I enjoy pairing this blush with Rosé Spritz as they give more dimension to the cheeks.
Now for the highlighters, Champagne Pop and Prosecco Pop are the two shades in this palette. I absolutely adore Champagne Pop (bottom swatch) and this is my 4th product with it in it. Now do I need this many iterations of the same highlight? Probably not. But I use this highlighter enough that I’ll go through all of them at some point. It is a great champagne-peach shade that gives an amazing glow.
Prosecco Pop (middle swatch) is the new highlighter in this face palette and definitely more yellow and gold in tone. It has the same great formulation as Champagne Pop but I find there is just a touch less glow when you apply it. It is a shade that would look stunning on darker skin tones but someone fair like me can also pull it off but you just have to be light handed.
Now when you combine the two highlighter shades (top swatch), you blend the best of both worlds. The extra shine from Champagne Pop (plus the more flattering shade) and a bit of the gold and warm tone from Prosecco Pop.
I am very happy with the product in this palette but I had one major issue. The packaging of my palette actually broke while I was photographing it. I must have opened the palette too much and one of the hinges broke. Now it’s hard to open and close the palette but I can still snap it shut and get use out of it.
It’s unfortunate that my palette broke but the product really is fantastic in it. It really helps solidify the fact that Becca makes some really amazing highlighters and blushes (whether in a Jaclyn Hill collab or not).
You can still get the split pan blush/highlighter duos on Sephora and a couple of the shades of blushes are included in that part of the collection!
What are your thoughts on this palette?
