I know I’m late for the highlighter party but I’m sure a lot of you have been oggling over Becca x Jaclyn Hill’s Champagne Pop. I mean, it has become quite the buzzword last year when it was first released. In fact, in the first 20 minutes it was on sale, the online retailer sephora.com sold a record-breaking 25,000 compacts, which was then a limited-edition color. Because of the huge demand and success, Becca decided for it to become a mainstay.
Now today, let me share with you what the hype on this beautiful highlighter is all about.
Amplify your natural radiance with a creamy, luminizing powder highlighter that veils skin in a soft, pearlized glow with a lustrous finish. Shimmering Skin Perfector™ Pressed is enriched with ultra-fine pearls that absorb, reflect and refract light. Like crushed gemstones, the multi-toned pearls adjust to your natural undertones. Unlike traditional methods, the one-of-a-kind formula blends pigments with liquids, providing an unparalleled, creamy application with balanced color coverage.
This specific shade, the Champagne Pop, is so magical that it achieves what used to be impossible for highlighters: a single shade that looks great on every skin tone. Unlike most highlighters that came before the Champagne Pop, which was mostly white for fair skinned or golden for darker skinned, this famous rose gold highlighter has a peach undertone that is so universally flattering.
“When you look at the color peach, it’s a mix of pink and yellow. And when those two colors are blended together, you get a shade that neutralizes your skin’s own undertones, which are usually some combination of yellow and pink, and warms up your complexion. It acts like a chameleon in the sense that the peach tone adapts to your skin tone,” Becca style director and makeup artist Kerry Cole.
Anyway, here are the swatch:
It’s so pigmented with one swipe off the pan. Ugh. GOR-GE-OUS.
Look at that beautiful fine glow when applied on my skin! You can spot it on the tip of my nose, the high points of my cheeks, my brow bone and a splash on the inner corners of my eyes.
You can definitely build it up if you want an ‘in-your-face’ highlight, but I like this diffused natural glow effect. I love pairing this with my Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush for that seamless glow through my cheeks.
