BECCA X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette Review

Hey, Everybody, I’ve been anticipating to review this beautiful, I mean really beautiful face palette. This is one of the hottest beauty items to have right now and I’m pretty sure we’re all curious about it. So, here it is, the Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette ($46) review and swatches.

Upon receiving Sephora’s email promotion about it, I was like “Oh my, this palette is gorgeous”. A few days later, upon receiving the palette by mail (since my local Sephora didn’t carry it yet at that time) I saw that it was indeed a sight to behold. Such a pretty and luxurious looking palette. It seems like Becca’s really good at making tempting compacts and palettes that you cannot resist, and with their collaboration with Chrissy Teigen, this palette couldn’t be more perfect.

There are four shades in this palette, two are highlighters, one is a bronzer and the other one is a blush. I’d say it’s a smart choice to put two highlighters in there because one can never have too many highlighters, especially for those strobing fanatics. Speaking of the two highlighters, they’re kinda similar in tone, but one is slightly darker and rosier, while the other one is lighter and peachy. The bronzer can be doubled for contouring, while the blush is more of a peachy pink.

Rose Gold (Pressed Highlighter) – Just like its name, it’s a golden rosy shimmer that looks very natural especially on light to medium complexion. It could look very similar to the Beach Nectar highlighter in the shade, but once the light hits, you’ll realize that it’s more natural and more subtle in effect.

Beach Nectar (Pressed Highlighter) – A golden peachy shade that’s a tad lighter than Rose Gold. A great highlighter for almost all skin tones because this will really stand out no matter what the lighting is during the day. I prefer this highlighter more than the one above.

Malibu Soleil (Bronzer) – Kind of a medium matte brown that is blendable and gives a natural finish. It sorta reminds me of Benefit’s Hoola, but slightly less pigmented, perhaps. This is such a good versatile bronzer/contouring shade.

Hibiscus Bloom (Luminous Blush) – Pretty coral pink blush with a bit of shimmer. I love that it’s not too pink and it gives the healthy flush on the cheeks. It also complements well with the two highlighters.

This Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette is indeed a great palette to have and is a must have. It has everything you’d want in a highlighting/contouring palette and the shades complement each other, not to mention their natural effect on the face. They may be all on the peachy side or that the effect is slightly more peachy, but I think that’s the purpose. It’s meant to make you look healthy and glowy ala California skin. The shades are also blendable and can be layered as well. I know some fair-skinned peeps have complained that the palette looks too dark or too pigmented on them, so it may help to be very light-handed when applying the colors.

I also noticed a few fallouts especially on the Beach Nectar highlighter, but it’s not so bad, at least not for me. Couldn’t really say any more negative things about this palette. I’m glad that I bought it and I think you might wanna have it too. It makes me feel like Queen Cleopatra that just got out of Sephora all gilded and well-chiseled, blinding everyone’s eyesight, until someone says “you look oily” and that’s when I start to become The Hulk. LMFAO.

 

The Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette is available in Sephora, QVC, Lord & Taylor & Ulta.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop/Flowerchild

Hey strobing and blush fanatics! This Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Collab has been all the buzz in Sephora lately. It seems like this year’s cool weather makeup trend involves luminous skin and playing with light. Thus the quest for the perfect highlighter or strobing products. 

I’ve heard a lot of talk about Becca highlighters or the Shimmering Skin Pressed Perfectors, specially the very famous Champagne Pop. Kylie Jenner uses them and a lot of MUAs. This Sephora Exclusive, Limited Edition Becca and Jaclyn Hill Highlighter and Blush Duo is a really good option for those who wants to try Becca’s popular Champagne Pop Highlighter plus their popular mineral blushes at the same time. It’s even great for those who have never tried their Champagne Pop before, like me. There’s different combinations available in each 4 compacts; The Champagne Pop (highligher)/Flowerchild(blush), Champagne Pop/Hyacinth, Prosecco Pop/Amaretto, Prosecco Pop/Pamplemousse.

I wasn’t so sure what combination I wanted at first. I had my eye on the Prosecco Pop/Pamplemousse at the beginning, because the blush’s color seems to match my skin tone upon swatching them at Sephora. But, I really really wanted to try the Champagne Pop, so my decision shifted towards the 2 compacts with Champagne Pop on them. But then again, I feel like I wanted the Amaretto shade for contouring, but it has Prosecco Pop on it, no Champagne Pop. OK, I literally had a brain damage in Sephora while trying to decide which Becca x Jaclyn Hill Highlighter/Blush duo I should get. I almost walked out from there because I got so annoyed at myself. But I WANTED TO TRY IT at least just one compact, my unconscious subconscious was telling me. So off I took home the Champagne Pop/Flowerchild, fingers crossed 🙂 but at least there’s Champagne Pop on it, hoping that the blush is buildable enough for more coverage.

Well, what do you know! this combination is really great. I love the Champagne Pop highlighter so much, I’ve been using it a lot lately. It gives a soft highlighted effect on the face and it stays put for a long time. I’m not exactly sure why some people said that this particular formulation is different from the original Champagne Pop Pressed. I swatched both at Sephora and I really couldn’t tell the difference. Perhaps I should try the Shimmering Pressed Perfector too. 🙂 As for the Flowerchild blush, well, it’s pigmented enough and is really buildable. Also, it doensn’t look over the top. Overall, a really great blush/highlighter combo. I’m planning to get another one, perhaps the Prosecco Pop/Amaretto, I hope. 🙂 

 

Grab yours now! you can buy it in sephora.com. Happy Highlighting!
