I'm so sorry this post is a week and a half late! Work has been absolutely crazy, and I've been really busy with last minute preparations for LA. I still cannot believe that I'm going to VidCon! That is for another post, though - today I'm going to tell you about the newest highlight from Becca cosmetics in collaboration with YouTuber Jaclyn Hill, Champagne Pop! You may have heard of it since a lot of people have been going crazy about it (myself included), so I definitely wanted to let you know my thoughts on it!
I have watched Jaclyn Hill's videos on YouTube for a while now, so when she announced Champagne Pop, I was so excited! A good highlight is what I had definitely been missing in my makeup collection, so I couldn't wait to get my hands on it.
The box is a gorgeous rose gold shade with "drops" of champagne (hence the water droplet overlay for the title picture hehe) all over.
The color shows up a bit better and this picture. The back features a picture of Jaclyn and a little back story to the product!
The whole product packaging itself looks the same as the other Becca highlights, and I love how it looks and feels! It's super chic and compact.
There's a little plastic cover over the product when you first open it up. I couldn't wait to get it off at this point!
LOOK AT THAT COLOR.
Here's a swatch on my hand!
It's seriously such a beautiful shade, and looks so pretty in the sunlight, and also when you aren't in direct light. I am in love!
Here's what it looks like in simple natural light - I love how it isn't super in your face (although you can definitely put more on than I did here!), but it also gives a super pretty glow to your skin. I applied it to the upper apples of my cheeks (is that a thing?) and also to my cupid bow area.
I love how it makes my skin glow a bit, since I have super dry skin that can look too matte sometimes!
Here's how it looks in direct sunlight!
I really love how this looks like in the sun - it gives you the perfect summer glow!
Overall I am SO satisfied with this product! The consistency is slightly buttery (you know what I mean?) so it goes on really well. I've been playing around with how much product to actually put on my brush, and I don't really think you can go wrong. It gives such a pretty glow to the skin, and looks especially gorgeous in the sun and bright lighting. I've noticed my skin also looks much glowy-er in general in regular indoor lighting, and I have gotten many compliments on it!
I was afraid I would be too pale for a highlight, but this shade really compliments the pinker undertones in my skin since it's more of a rose gold color. Even though it is a rose gold shade, I think it would look really good on people who are darker or have a more olive complexion. It really is a versatile product that can work with a lot of different skin tones!
I really encourage you to get this highlight if you've been needing one, or if you want to try a new one out! Becca highlights are known for being really great, and this one definitely lived up to the hype and expectations! I'm very, very pleased with my purchase, and give it two thumbs up!
Do you have a favorite highlight?
Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! :)
