Hopefully you have all been made aware of the new Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection which was created by Jaclyn and Becca Cosmetics. As soon as I knew this was a thing, I put an alert in my diary, worked out what time it would be on sale according to UK time and kept a close eye on social media to get little sneak peaks before the official launch. I have honestly never been more excited for a makeup collection in all my life.
If you don’t know who Jaclyn Hill is, she is a makeup guru on YouTube who launched the world’s number 1 highlighter, Champagne Pop (£32), last summer which sold out almost instantly. Jaclyn is known as the highlight queen within the YouTube world so it was only right that she launched her first highlighter with, in my opinion, the company behind the best highlighters on the market. If you haven’t tried any of the Becca highlighters, you are missing out, seriously! Please buy one, you will not regret it. I have Opal, Champagne Pop and Pearl and they are by far the best I have ever used. They are the most gorgeous, buttery, pigmented, creamy and unique highlighters on the market and worth every penny. I have a guide to highlighters post which you can find here if you wanna see some swatches.
This new collection blew up on social media when it was first announced so you can imagine all of us beauty obsessed folks trying to find out as much information as possible. Within this new collection is the following: Limited Edition Face Palette (£48/$52), Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette (£36/$40) and Shimmering Skin Perfector Champagne Pop in Pressed (£32/$38), Liquid (£34/$41), and Poured Crème (£30/$38)! I already have the pressed Champagne pop so I knew I didn’t want to buy this again as I am nowhere near finished that. I wasn’t too fussed about the liquid or poured crème versions so I went straight for the thing that would get the most use and that was the LE Face Palette. So on the 26th May 2016 from 4.30pm, I sat and refreshed the Sephora screen until the “add to basket” tab opened up which was at 4.45pm. I then frantically went through the stages of purchasing it, forgot my password, kept typing in the wrong information but after a couple of minutes it was over and done with. I was over the moon when I got my confirmation email to say it had all gone through and would be with me by 31st May. I bought it for £59 with shipping and taxes included but after a few days I got an email to say this had been reduced to £49, BONUS!
I know that the face and eye palettes are sold out online, I have included links to the liquid, creme and powder variations of Champagne Pop above but all items will be available from 16th June on Sephora website and in store so you have plenty of time to save your pennies and get in there. It will be available from SpaceNK too as of the 21st June which you can pre order here.
You can also pre
order the Eyeshadow Palette here. The eyeshadow palette has been taken off of the website due to recent negative reviews with regards to Becca Cosmetics using a different lab to make sure they met the deadline. Jaclyn has also taken her YT video down where she discussed all products in her latest collaboration as she was angry and hurt that everything wasn`t tested. Check out her twitter for more information. I dont know if this everywhere or just in Sephora. But if you are unhappy with your palette, then you need to contact Becca or Sephora.
As I said previously, the only thing I bought from the collection was the limited-edition Champagne Collection Face Palette which features five shades in total. There are 2 x 0.19 oz. Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed highlighter shades in Champagne Pop (soft white gold with pinky peach undertones), Prosecco Pop (medium warm gold). 2 x 0.12 oz. Mineral Blush in Amaretto (matte toasted almond), Pamplemousse (matte warm coral pink) and 1 x 0.10 oz. Luminous Blush in Rosé Spritz (soft peachy pink with pale gold shimmer). This palette is Paraben, Sulfate and Phthalate free. I think we can all agree, that is a lot of product for the price tag. I think its valued at over $130 or something ridiculous like that. It also comes with a huge mirror too so its easy to pop in your bag and use when you want to touch up your makeup.
It does say you can mix and match but there is only 2 pinky shades, a contour shade and 2 highlighters so I don’t think there is much room to mix and match as such. Each powder within the palette is what I would expect from Becca to be honest. They are all highly pigmented, they are buttery soft, they feel creamy, they blend out beautifully and they look fricking amazing! I imagine they would suit all skin tones as they seem to be universally flattering shades.
I am in awe of this palette. It is simply stunning. I cant wait to play about with it more especially using Rose Spritz as a lip highlighter! If you want this palette, I would suggest getting in there early as they are limited edition which means when they are gone, they are gone!
