Last week, I was lucky enough to order the new, limited edition Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette during its early release on the Sephora mobile app. It will go on sale on Sephora.com tomorrow, May 26th and will be available in stores on June 16th. For whatever reason, I feel like I need Jaclyn Hill’s collaborations with Becca whenever they’re announced. I don’t typically get excited about blogger or YouTuber collabs, but it’s different with Jaclyn! Even though our makeup styles couldn’t be more different, I know what she brings out with Becca will be high quality and very, very pretty! Here are some more pictures:
The packaging is very pretty. It is plastic, but it has a nice weight to it that I feel would be over the top if it were made of glass or metal. The back of the palette has a sticker that details which shades and formulas are inside. The entire inside of the cover has a good, high quality mirror.
Inside, you get a 0.19 oz pan each of Champagne Pop and the new highlighter, Prosecco Pop (Becca’s original Shimmering Skin Perfectors come in 0.28 oz pans). Prosecco Pop is described as a medium warm gold. You also get three blushes, Rosé Spritz (0.10 oz), a “peachy pink with pale gold shimmer”, Amaretto (0.12 oz), a “matte toasted almond”, and Pamplemousse (0.12 oz), a “matte warm coral pink”.
So far, I’m enjoying all the shades. I think my favorites so far may be Amaretto and Pamplemousse, which is exactly the opposite of what I expected. Amaretto seems a bit deep for very fair skin tones, but it actually looks quite muted and pretty after it’s blended out. Pamplemousse is BRIGHT! You need a very light hand for all of these as they are extremely pigmented, but especially for Rosé Spritz and Pamplemousse. It should also be noted that while Amaretto and Pamplemousse are described as matte on Sephora’s site, they do have a very small amount micro glitter when viewed up close, though it’s nowhere near as much as Rosé Spritz, which has all the pop of the two highlighters. While I do think Prosecco Pop is gorgeous, it is a bit noticeable on my skin. It has an obvious gold appearance instead of a natural-looking highlight. I’m wearing it as an eyeshadow today, and I think it looks beautiful!
Some other things to note: My palette came with a 1.5 ml sample of the Backlight Priming Filter. Becca claims this is a $136 value. I could be wrong, but when comparing the pan sizes in this palette to their normal pan sizes and prices, I could only come up with an overall value of $106. Still, considering this is retailing for $52, it’s an incredible savings. I was honestly expecting this to be more in the $70-$80 range.
Overall, this is a gorgeous palette. It’s definitely something to look into if you’re a collector, if you love Becca’s formulas, and if you love blushes and highlighters! Will you be ordering this when it goes on sale tomorrow?
