Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection

I'm sure you're all fully aware of the collection thats taken the beauty world by storm, of course it's the Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection!
Like most people, I was introduced to this with the release of the 'Champagne Pop' pressed shimmering skin perfector. I received this as a birthday gift, and I've been hooked on the shade since, so when Becca & Jaclyn announced the Champagne Collection Face Palette, I was desperate to get it! It was so difficult to get a hold of with it being in such high demand, not to mention the price of it being over in the US! Luckily, on one of my frequent browses on Space NK, I spotted it! It was one of those 'add to bag, pay, done' situations.

The packaging is super luxurious. You can tell love and effort has gone into creating this palette. While having a couple of products in one place can be handy, it is quite heavy, so I'm not sure I'd use it as a travel palette! I travel a lot, and it's hard enough trying to narrow down my 'on-the-go' beauty products without carrying a paperweight!
However, that doesn't mean it doesn't make a beautiful addition to my vanity.. white and gold? Very 'instagramable'. (When is that word going to be added to the Oxford dictionary I wonder?).

Shades from L to R - Rose Spritz, Amaretto, Pamplemousse, Champagne Pop & Prosecco Pop

The selection of blushers are beautiful, although I would probably switch Pamplemousse for a peachy shade, however I think Pamplemousse would be beautiful on deeper complexions. All shades are super pigmented and blend beautifully. A light hand is required! My favourite of the trio is 'Amaretto', the perfect brown toned pink. I loved this so much that I went on the purchase the Champagne split in 'Amaretto & Prosecco Pop'. 
You get a pan of Champagne Pop, (of course!), and the new creation, Prosecco Pop. Champagne Pop is slightly peachier in tone, whereas Prosecco Pop is a lot more gold. I actually prefer Champagne Pop to Prosecco Pop, I find it to look a lot softer and it almost melts into my skin. Unfortunately I don't think is in stock anywhere at the moment, but you can purchase these items individually!

Now here's a product I definitely didn't see myself being enamoured by, but one that's totally taken front seat in my make-up routine. The rest of the products in this post were received as a birthday present from my parents, and I wanted this purely because I'm a huge Jaclyn fan, and I love the Champagne Pop line, not because it was something I necessarily needed. I saw myself occasionally using it as a cream highlighter, or as a base for my powder highlighter, but oh no! I decided to mix it with my foundation, and sweet Lord it was the most beautiful creation known to man. Bare in mind I'm an oily gal, so adding dew to my base isn't my priority, but this added the most beautiful 'lit from within' glow to my skin, bringing out gorgeous golden tones. If you're looking for some glow, (who isn't these days?!), definitely pick up one of these babies, it'll change the game completely. 

Here we have another variation on the Champagne Pop highlighter, and this is aimed at more precise highlighting, you know, the cupids bow, nose & brow bone, that type of thing! Unfortunately, this just doesn't do it for me. Don't get me wrong, the colour is beautiful, but the way it applies is just far too dry for my liking. I like products of this nature to be creamy and bendable, but this requires a little more attention than it should. I love the idea of it, but it's a miss in my opinion!

Who other than Jaclyn Hill to create the most deluxe brush? I couldn't even bare to throw away the gold box it came in!
If you're in the market for a highlighter brush, definitely check this one out, it's super soft and distributes the products beautifully. I'd even consider using this for blusher as it does seem to cover quite a lot of surface. 

I didn't pick up the poured version of Champagne Pop as I can't see myself using it, but if you like a cream highlighter, it's one worth picking up!

Have you tried anything from the Champagne Pop range? Comment below, I'd love to know!
