I recently posted about my top five highlighters and mentioned that I had recently purchased Champagne Pop, which is the latest product from BECCA in collaboration with Jaclyn Hill (a.k.a. the Queen of highlighting!). I've watched Jaclyn on youtube for a few years and love her positive, upbeat, sassy personality. Her highlight has always been "on fleek" so when I first heard about this collaboration, I was so excited but when I then heard it was exclusive to Sephora, my heart sank because I assumed it would sell out immediately. Sephora ship to the UK (there are some brand restrictions), and therefore we can order from Ireland via the Parcel Motel. I actually ended up ordering it from Rose's Beauty Store because it worked out a pretty much the same price and shipping was only £3.50. It arrived less than a week after I ordered & it was pretty much love at first sight.
It is described as soft white gold with pinky peach undertones and I could definitely see this suiting both pale and tanned skins. This is a highly pigmented product and it is so light reflecting that I was unsure initially if it would be suitable for daytime wear, but then I thought "sod it" and have been wearing it during the day because it is a really beautiful product & if I was to keep it for only night-time wear, it just wouldn't be used! #sickgirlproblems
The powder is buttery soft - probably one of the creamiest powders I have ever used. In fact, I have made some little dents in it just from removing the plastic cover - that is how soft it is. I use a very light hand and only the smallest amount on the tops of my cheek bones, a tiny amount on my cupid's bow and a little on the inner corners of my eyes. The swatch above shows how pigmented it is, but it is swatched quite heavily on my hand to show the colour but I personally use a much lighter touch when applying it.
I don't have a similar highlighter in my collection so am delighted to own this, but it still doesn't beat my absolute favourite highlighting product, which is Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Liquid Lighting, which is more subtle than Champagne Pop and is perfect for everyday wear.
In on of her recent videos, Lily Pebbles said that she thinks that Champagne Pop will be released in the U.K. soon, which is brilliant news! Are you tempted to buy it? Do you have anything similar in your collection? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this gorgeous product!
