Right before I went on my trip to Traverse City, Michigan I was sent the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection. So I decided to live swatch the collection for you. This collection is currently available at Sephora, but it is limited edition.
Best Highlighters, Bronzers and Contours for Summer
Where to Buy
$40 eyeshadow palette (discontinued)
$52 face palette
$38 pressed shimmering skin perfector .28 oz
$38 creme shimmering skin perfector .19 oz
$41 liquid shimmering skin perfector 1.7 oz
The eyeshadows were swatched on Too Faced Shadow Insurance.
The eyeshadow palette was pulled because the quality wasn’t up to Becca’s normal products.
a sheer gold with undertones of pink and flashes of soft yellow
This was a nearly invisible sheer gold metallic on me. Terrible in my opinion.
a reflective peach with a dash of cinnamon
This is a pretty metallic peach but it needs to be built up.
a matte rose with warm undertones
This reminded me of Urban Decay Laced (light pink taupe matte). It was better than Champagne Toast.
a flattering matte coffee
This is a slightly deep warm brown matte. It was ok. You probably have a million shades like it in your collection.
a matte rich wine with chocolate undertones
This is supposed to be a burgundy brown. It applied terribly. I even tried swatching it twice. For a similar shade, Urban Decay x Gwen has Punk (currently on sale for $39, 30% off, see my review). Too Faced Chocolate Bon Bons has Bordeaux, the same shade with the same name, only a much better formula than the Becca formula.
The Champagne Face palette is much better quality. However, I think it’s better for darker skintones than mine. The only shades I would wear in the palette are Rose Spritz and Pamplemousse. Prosecco Pop and Champagne Pop are too dark to be highlighters on my skintone.
a white gold with pinky peach undertones
a medium warm gold inspired by liquid gold
a matte toasted almond
a matte warm coral pink
The pressed version of Champagne Pop has the most intense highlight, which I really like the finish. I wish the color was lighter so that it would work on my skintone. If you like your highlighter to be seen from a distance, this is what you want. The creme version is the most subtle, so if you like a subtle and refined highlighter, this is what you want. The liquid version can be mixed into your primer, foundation, moisturizer, just about anything you want.
If you like this video, give it a thumbs up and share!
I personally wouldn’t recommend the eyeshadow palette, but it’s not available any longer anyways. Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani eyeshadow palette is less than the price of the Becca x Jaclyn Hill palette right now, and it has 15 shades vs. 5. So if you are thinking about an eyeshadow palette, that might be a good one to snag.
I would only recommend the face palette if you can wear all 5 shades. If you’ll only wear 1 or 2, I would skip it. I do recommend the highlighters if you don’t have pale skin like mine. I do think they’re gorgeous.
