Becca Bronzer + Blush Highlighters

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection

May 26, 2016

The Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection launches today online at Sephora and everything is beautiful. The collection features items focused on creating the ultimate glow for the complexion, eyes and cheeks. The original Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder (reviewed here) has been extended into two other formulas. In addition two palettes created by Becca and Jaclyn Hill have launched as limited-edition pieces. The collection launches online today 5/26 at Sephora and will be in stores 6/16. In the collection (the image below is interactive so you can click on the icons to go directly to the product pages online at Sephora):

A closer look at each item starting with the Champagne Collection Face Palette which comes a large sturdy mirrored compact. The two palettes have gold reflective packaging so if you see that they look different on other blogs or on social – it’s because of the highly reflective nature of the surface. The Champagne Collection Face Palette has three blushes and two highlighters. All the colors in this palette are extremely pigmented but easy to blend – in testing this I found it best to use with a light hand. There is one shade of Luminous Blush called Rosé Spritz which is a very shimmer pink gold finish. There are two shades of Mineral Blush which are more on the satiny side and more natural-looking in Amaretto which is a medium tan and Pamplemousse which is a pink grapefruit color. You can use shades individually or mix to create different looks. I found I liked the look best when I used either of the mineral blushes first before layering any of the shimmery shades on top.

There are two highlighters – both of which are extremely shimmery and very glowy. I have and adore the original Champagne Pop (originally reviewed here and compared to Anastasia That Glow here). The Champagne Pop in the palette is identical in color but for some reason to my eye both highlighters in the palette seem to be a couple notches up in terms of glitz and shimmer. Both are still wearable if you apply with a light hand. Prosecco Pop is the more yellow gold option which usually isn’t a flattering color on my olive yellow-based skin. I can wear Prosecco Pop with a very light hand, but I still prefer Champagne Pop by far. A closer look:

Swatched below with a medium hand, you can blend to sheer out or apply with a denser brush for more intensity. Pigment is so rich I suspect these colors will show up on a wide range of skin tones. The overall effect is very glowy but still wearable for conservative makeup lovers:

A look at the palette without sunlight or flash:

Next up is the Champagne Collection Eye palette which has two shimmers and three mattes. The overall undertone is warm. It has Chardonnay which is a pale white gold frost, Champagne Toast which is a warm tan copper frost, Cordial which is the prettiest mauve matte, Cognac a very warm toasted brown matte and Bordeaux a soft plum matte. The shimmers offer rich high pigment color while the mattes have a softer medium finish. Textures are soft making them easy to blend on the eyes but I do recommend using a creamy base (I like using the Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid or Poured Creme on the lids, but I think I’m the only one I know who does not have oily lids). For me the colors did take a bit of experimenting and blending because I cannot wear reds or warm shades like this easily. I swatched it next to Ombre Rouge which I just ordered (have not tried yet) for reference. Here in direct sunlight:

Another shot of the Becca Champagne Collection Eye Palette – because the packaging is gold it looks different depending on what is reflecting in the compact:

Last but not least are the three Champagne Pop complexion items. The Shimmering Perfector Liquid offers the most natural finish. It’s very natural on the skin and on the medium-sheer side. The color almost matches my skin exactly so it adds a naturally dewy sheen. It does look luminous so if you have oily skin you may find it will look more luminous as the day progresses. The Shimmering Perfector Poured Creme has a more visible finish compared to the Liquid but still looks very natural. Out of the three Champagne Pops this finish and color is my favorite. Then you have the classic Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed – for those who love highlighters there is a different formula for multiple colors in the Becca line so you can pick the finish that works best for you.

Below the Champagne Pop formulas swatched along with a few other Becca colors:

I’ve only been playing around with the collection for a few days but first impressions are that I really love all three Champagne Pop formulas. I did think there might be a chance that having Champagne Pop in three formats would be overdoing it but after testing them I think they are different enough to justify all three if you love highlighter. If you want to limit yourself to 1, my favorite is the Poured Creme because it has the perfect in between finish (powder being the most shimmery and liquid being the most natural).

For the Face Palette – I had already ordered it when it launched as a very brief preview and was able to test this one for a few more days. I tried this a number of ways and found it to be extremely pigmented and very glowy – but the colors are easy to blend for a wearable look and the blending does not require a lot of extra effort which is nice for me since I’m more conservative in the makeup I wear. The colors are naturally flattering for and the warm undertones brighten the complexion. Since the colors are pigmented I prefer to apply with a lighter hand. The Champagne Pop highlighter in the palette does seem to be more glowy and shimmery compared to the individual version (Prosecco Pop is exclusive to the palette). If you prefer a more natural glow or softer color this may be too shimmery or too pigmented for you.

The Eye Shadow Palette is all kinds of gorgeous but very warm. I have been experimenting with warmer shades recently though and the palette from Becca is really stunning. I start with the medium matte mauve shade, then layer the ivory and gold, then use the deeper shades to contour – the effect is very pretty and soft without being too warm. Pigment for shimmers is rich while the mattes have a sheerer more natural finish but still offer smooth easy to blend coverage.
Bottom line everything is beautiful and worth checking out. The Becca Face Palette may be too glowy for some in which case I’d recommend you opt for the Tom Ford Afternooner which has a much softer effect but similar warm color scheme.

You can find the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection exclusively at Sephora. It launched online today 5/26 but everything is scheduled to launch in store by 6/16. 

The Champagne Collection Face Palette and Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed were already purchased by me, however Becca also sent the entire collection for review consideration.

  • I got caught up in the drama and ordered the face palette and the poured cream I already have the pressed powder. I have only once ordered from US because I could wait for friends or family to shop for me. This really looks gorgeous and I can't wait for it to land. Xx

  • The Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection looks absolutely stunning and gorgeous. I can see myself purchasing this collection!!! ❤❤

  • Such a beautiful collection!

  • This was a great read. I bought the palette today and was eager to see what was in store! It also cleared up the difference between the three formulas.

    I've seen people saying that the Champagne Pop in the face palette has a drier consistency compared to the standalone Champagne Pop – have you found this to be true as well?

  • Jojo

    Love Becca! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on the rouge palette as I've been eyeing it for some time. Are the matte shades pretty much exactly same in both palettes?

  • i am so excited by this line! i still havent tried the champagne pop highlighter but i really want to! the eyeshadow palette looks absolutely stunning!

  • I really like the blushes in the palette but for us ultra pale people it's probably too much!

    • Totally agree… I don't know if I should purchase this one or The Afternooner… My boyfriend says none of them! 🙂

  • THANK YOU for the swatches alongside ombre rouge. I have the ombre rouge palette and am so glad I didn't spend $40 on a palette that basically has 3 of the same colors in it.

  • Oh, I'm so glad I finally have a moment to catch-up on all my favourite blogs, yours included (obviously!). I first spotted this incredible on Instagram – no surprises there – and I was blown away by the stunning shades. It's like beauty heaven on a palette!

    Of course, I'm even more in-love with this collection and even more convinced that I need it after reading your always thorough review. I can't decide whether I want the Face Palette or Eye Palette. Maybe both. Hmm.

    Bring on super glowy, luminous skin!

  • Well I know what my next paycheck is going towards!

  • That e/s palette looks so pretty <3

  • The eye palette looks really nice! I didn't realize there was one since everyone has just been raving about the face palette lol

  • This looks utterly gorgeous! I need that palette 🙂

  • I can't WAIT until my face palette is delivered on Tuesday. I'm NW45ish, and just saw a blogger with a deeper skin tone use it;it looked gorgeous on her.

  • This collection is just beautiful! I need to get my hands on that eyeshadow palette 🙂

  • I'm so glad I managed to pick these up and they are on their way to Dubai-your swatches really are stunning and as always, so helpful even though I am so much paler than you. But you always swatch against something I own so I can mentally compute how it will look on my skin!

  • Oh my, everything looks gorgeous! Especially loving the look of the eyeshadow palette, not that I need any more haha!

  • Can I just add I absolutely love Sephora. I ordered this from UK on Thursday afternoon and it's being delivered on Tuesday. Some British retailers don't even turn this round that quick. I ordered the two face palettes (one for me and one for my sister) I already have the Champagne Pop powder and I ordered the poured cream but having watched Wayne Goss on You Tube and read this in more detail I do wish I had ordered the eye palette and the perfector liquid which is a bit mad when I already have so much stuff & I am trying to cut back but I get totally seduced by the drama of a much anticipated release and your beautiful photos which are my Achilles heel.

  • All arrived and I am delighted. For UK readers the Space NK list opens tomorrow for pre ordering of the whole Jaclyn Hill Becca Champagne Collection with arrival due 21.06.2016 which is hugely appreciated as that is my birthday and I can now order the eye palette and the shimmering Perfector liquid which didn't seem so urgent but of course now I haven't go them I find I am obsessing about having them……typical! So glad we will have a UK stockist but I imagine these will sell out as quickly here so I would really consider getting yourself into the pre order list when it opens tomorrow. Xxx

  • Oh my. This looks breathtaking. x

  • This looks so beautiful, the face and eye palette are divine. I need them, great post and stunning photos x
