Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection - Face Palette

Palette Review & Swatches

This is another palette that I wasn't sure about reviewing, because it is limited edition & i'm unsure if it's still available to purchase :/ but it's such a beautiful palette & Becca have added more to the Jaclyn Hill champagne collection since, with duo compacts including the blushes & highlighters from this palette, so I thought i'd post a quick review for those interested in the new compacts or if this palette ever comes back!
The face palette includes Jaclyns original baby "Champagne Pop", along with a new highlighter "Prosecco Pop" better for deeper skintones & 3 new blushes "Rose Spritz", "Amaretto" & "Pamplemousse" all for $52 USD (or $102 NZD from Sephora NZ)
If you have ever watched Jaclyn Hill on YouTube, you would know the woman is extremely talented & has a mind full of makeup knowledge! She knows what she wants from her makeup, she is an absolute perfectionist when it comes to her passion, so I knew these products were going to be amazing quality & to the best of Beccas abilities they made that happen.
Now I know this collection had a bit of controversy revolved around it due to the eyeshadow palette that was part of the collection, including one shade Jaclyn created, had to be made in a different factory in china, so some palettes were perfect but most were not up to par, resulting in Becca completely dropping the palette from the collection. Which I think is cool because it shows if they can't make something perfect for us, they won't make it at all. Jaclyn Hill was very honest about the whole situation over snapchat & expressed her disappointment, but people are always looking for something shady or sinister behind everything & started attacking Jaclyn over the internet about the whole collection being a sham & that everything was made in china, the face palettes Champagne Pop is different to the original BLA BLA BLA! Yet nothing was said about the other products before the info about the eyeshadow palette was known.. Some people are far to quick to judge & desperate to see others fail. It's makeup everybody, it's not that serious!

Just had to get that out of the way, I know about the eyeshadow palette but that is definitely not the case with the face palette. I'm literally in love with this palette! Champagne Pop was the first product I ever bought from Becca, because Hi gotta support JH! So this was the first time trying their blushes & wow! I was in shock at how smooth, buttery, pigmented, delicious these were! Wait till you see the swatches below, one touch of every shade & one swipe on my arm, the texture is amazing & so smoothly swatched down my arm like actual butter! I compared my original Champagne Pop with the new one in the palette & at first glance I thought the original was slightly more peachy but my friend pointed out the gold palette would throw your eyes off a bit, swatched next to each other they're exactly the same! The texture is the same, the shade is the same & end result on the face is the same!

A quick little mention about the packaging, IT'S THE PRETTIEST THING I OWN!
It's super high quality, quite solid & heavy gold case with a white champagne spritz top, amazing mirror inside that doesn't bend or blur, like Jeffree Star said "it's an expensive mirror!"

♥SWATCHES



Champagne Pop -
Jaclyns original, Soft white gold with pinky peach undertones 
Prosecco Pop -
Medium warm gold
Rose Spritz -
Soft peachy pink with pale gold shimmer
Amaretto -
Matte toasted almond  
Pamplemousse -
Matte warm coral pink

I wish you could see how smoothly these swatched on arm, the pigment dragged all the way & didn't go patchy or powdery. These are the best blushes I've ever used (not that I'm a big blush fan, but I'm starting to use them more) and of course the highlights are so creamy and reflective yet melt in to the skin making them appear very natural
If they ever bring this palette back I totally recommend getting it, once you see the quality you'll be using them all the time! But if not, don't forget Becca & Jaclyn have also added compact duos to the collection including combos like Prosecco Pop + Amaretto, the perfect pair for tanned/olive skin or there's Champagne Pop + Flowerchild Blush (not in this palette but a more wearable combo versus Champagne Pop & say Rose Spritz) or Prosecco + Pamplemousse, another good combo for deeper skin. Check them out at Sephora US & AUS/NZ
