Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette


I debated over whether to get this or not for a long time, but when I saw that it was on the NZ Sephora website (which was totally unexpected), there was no question.

First off: all of the shades in the palette are amazing formulas. They swatch and wear beautifully.

Top to bottom: Rose Spritz, Amaretto, Pamplemousse, Champagne Pop, Prosecco Pop


Blushes:

Rose Spritz is absolutely gorgeous. It's like a better and more intense, slightly more coral version of Deep Throat by Nars. Deep Throat (who comes up with these names) is still a good dupe though if you do want to try it and can't get your hands on this palette.

Surprisingly, my favourite blush shade is Amaretto. I thought it would be too dark and bronzy to be a good blush colour (I'm pretty pale), but it actually works quite well. I wish they would make it permanent and do a full sized pan.

The third shade is Pamplemousse, which I would describe as a corally pink shade. I like it, but I don't think that this is anything particularly special or unique.

Highlighters:

There were rumours that the original version of Champagne Pop and the version in this palette are different. I can confirm that this is totally true.  The two swatches below are BOTH Champagne Pop. The top is from the palette and the bottom is the single Champagne Pop original.


It's less obvious in the photo than in real life, but the top shade is a lot more gold toned, while the bottom shade is a lot more copper. While they are both beautiful highlighters, in person, you can tell that they are distinctly different colours. I prefer the one from the palette, its a bit softer and (despite neither of them being at all natural) more "natural" looking, if you know what I mean - at least on my skin tone.

I have to say that although I do prefer the one in the palette to the original, it is a little disappointing that there is this discrepancy. From a high-end brand, you would expect a more consistent product.

Last but not least is Prosecco Pop. Another gorgeous highlighter, but a little too gold for me. Mixed with Champagne Pop it works though.

Overall, I am happy that I got this palette. But if you want it and can't get it anymore, don't be too disappointed. Champagne Pop is permanent and you can find dupes for the blushes. The only shade that I think might be harder to find a dupe for is Prosecco Pop.


Did you get this palette? What do you think?
