Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed

Friday, July 10, 2015

Last week, Becca launched a limited edition shade of their best-selling Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in a shade called Champagne Pop that was made in collaboration with YouTuber and make-up artist, Jaclyn Hill. Champagne Pop is described as Jaclyn's "dream shade of the very best highlighter on the market... This creamy luminizing powder veils the skin in a soft pearlized glow. Light-reflecting pearls beautifully catch the light, allowing your favourite features to pop! Sweep across face or apply to targeted areas including cheekbones, brow bones, and bridge of nose." It is exclusive to Sephora; it was made available online on July 2, and will be available in stores on July 16. Champagne Pop comes in a regular dark brown rubberized mirrored compact, but in a special edition rose gold box featuring Jaclyn Hill's signature. Each compact has 8 grams of product, and retails for $46.

Champagne Pop

Moonstone, Champagne Pop, and Opal

Champagne Pop is a light warm peachy champagne with champagne gold micro-shimmer in a pearlized finish. It has a very soft, almost creamy texture, and goes on smoothly and evenly. It has high pigmentation and opaque colour pay-off. It can be layered and blended out easily. It is darker and more peach than Becca Moonstone, slightly lighter and warmer than Becca Opal, lighter and warmer than MAC Soft and Gentle, slightly darker and more peach than MAC Lightscapade, darker and more peach than TheBalm Mary Lou-Manizer, warmer and less pink than TheBalm Cindy Lou-Manizer, and more peach than Bobbi Brown Beige Shimmer Brick.

Whether or not you're a fan of Jaclyn Hill, it's undeniable that she's created a gorgeous highlighter shade with Becca. It has everything you'd expect from Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formula: an incredibly soft and finely-milled texture that feels almost creamy, high pigmentation with intense colour pay-off, and a stunning pearlized finish. I've included swatches of Moonstone and Opal beside Champagne Pop so you see what the difference is between the three and to see if it's worth chasing down Champagne Pop. For those who find Moonstone to be too light or Opal to be too beige, Champagne Pop will be worth looking at. I recommend this for light to medium-dark skintones (those with very fair skintones may find this too dark to use as a highlighter, and darker skintones may find this too light or stark), and it will work best for those with neutral to warm complexions (those with cooler undertones may find this too golden). The issue for many will actually be acquiring the product — it sold out online in under an hour, and has become Sephora's fastest selling product to date (when a highly recognized beauty brand collaborates with one of the most famous make-up artists on YouTube on one of their best-selling products, the hype surrounding it is unreal). If you were interested in Champagne Pop or were too late in buying it online, it will be made available in-store at all Sephora locations on July 16 (yes, even the stores that don't carry Becca regularly). Again, it will go fast, so get to your local Sephora the moment it opens.

  1. Haha, this just convinced me that maybe one of the others is something I need! But probably in the cream formulation - the powders are lovely but I really want something a little subtler right now. Or I mean, in the fall when it finally cools down (I HOPE) and a highlighter is actually necessary again.

    1. Haha, I love highlighter regardless of the time of year. :P

      I think the shade will depend on what your skintone is now. I'm an NC35 right now, and I find Champagne Pop to be just perfect. It's a bit darker and a touch peachier than Whisper of Gilt. Moonstone is actually a little too light and vanilla for my liking on my skintone any time of year, but it's really lovely on fair skintones. Opal is more similar to MAC Soft and Gentle, so it's a bit more pinky beige in comparison, but the most widely flattering overall.

  2. do you know how this compares to benefit's watts up? that one is my favorite so far for the shade.

    1. I had Watts Up and it seemed cooler and pinker in tone than Champagne Pop which is peachier.

    2. Watt's Up is darker and more gold. And it's also cream, which is the biggest difference.

  3. Lol, like Larie, Champagne Pop only served to highlight my need for Moonstone or Opal. :)

    1. I think Champagne Pop is actually my favourite of the three! At least, on my skintone. Moonstone is a bit too light for my liking, and I do like Opal, but it's quite a bit pinker in comparison. They're all beautiful, though. :)
