The Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection has been on my radar for a while now. If you don't know, Jaclyn Hill is a You Tube beauty guru. If you watch her recent videos she's got an amazing color and highlight to her cheeks. I had been saving this Champagne Splits Shimmering Skin Perfector® Mineral Blush Duo ($38 at Sephora) in my wishlist and yesterday pulled the trigger when I literally did a quick "in and out: at Sephora on Powell Street in SF. The colors for this blush and highlighter duo are Champagne Pop (highlight) and Flowerchild (blush). There are 4 color sets in all so you can pick the blush/highlighter duo that best suits your skin tone.
First of all, let's talk about the compact because it's such a beautiful brushed silver and gold finish. I like that it's not too heavy either. The blush itself is a really nice flattering pink, but it isn't too overpowering either. I have a swatch below where I applied it on my arm with my NARS blush brush and you can see how soft and subtle it is. Just the way I like it! I must warn you though the highlighter looks more shimmery close up than what I am used to. But from far away when I look in the mirror, my cheeks look just amazing! You can use your brush to blend it out more if you want to.
You can see from this swatch how beautifully the highlight color blends right into the blush!
I didn't need another blush or highlighter for that matter but I am super happy with this purchase. I'm new to the Becca brand and I'm very impressed with this product!
