Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette – Review & Swatches

Becca’s newest addition is another highly anticipated collaboration with Jaclyn Hill. The Champagne collection palette has been all over social media, as her millions of followers have eagerly awaited its release.

There was an early limited release on May 17th (which sold out in 90 minutes!) before its official online release on May 26th, and its in-store release on June 16th.

The limited edition palette will be sold exclusively in Sephora stores and Sephora online, and retails for $59 Canadian ($52 USD)

The Champagne Collection Palette features 3 blushes (2 Mineral and 1 Luminous), and 2 Shimmering Skin Perfectors.

  • Rose Spritz: luminous “soft peachy pink with pale gold shimmer” blush
  • Amaretto: (mineral) a “matte toasted almond” blush
  • Pamplemousse: (mineral)”matte warm coral pink” blush
  • Champagne Pop: with”soft white gold with pinky peach undertones” shimmering skin perfector
  • Prosecco Pop: “medium warm gold” shimmering skin perfector

The packaging is stunning, and I think in many ways perfectly represents Jaclyn Hill and her style. It’s chic, girly, and glamorous with it’s quite squared packaging and gold detailing. It’s one of those items you want to put on display at all times!

The pigmentation is amazing – smooth and pigmented with a soft and blendable texture. Initially, I wasn’t a huge fan of the color selection, however I quickly came to love the shades. They are definitely unique, and offer a shade for each skintone which I think is fantastic. This is a stunning palette for the summer, and the shades can be blended & combined in so many different ways.

“Rose Spritz” is gorgeous, but very shimmery. If you have a lot of texture/acne, you may want to use a very light hand with this one – or use it as more of a blush booster by sweeping a tiny amount of it over another blush colour.

“Amaretto” is gorgeous as a bronzer, or as a warmer blush for medium-deep skin tones. It shows up very warm on camera, but is a bit more neutral in person.

“Pamplemousse” is a tone that is great for all skin tones and types! It looks a bit scary when swatches, but is beautiful when lightly dusted on the cheeks with a fluffy brush.

As for the quantity, the shimmering skin perfectors are 0.19 oz each (compared to the 0.28 oz of the regular Shimmering Skin perfectors), the mineral blushes are 0.12 oz each (compared to the regular 0.2 oz) and “Rose Spritz” is 0.10 oz. So while you are getting less than the regular full sized items, considering all but Champagne Pop are limited edition and the lower cost of the palette, it’s a great value!

Overall, I think Jaclyn Hill & Becca did a fantastic job with this palette. It’s stunning and I highly recommend it!
