Hype. I like to think that I'm immune to it but to be perfectly honest, I'm not. The proof is right here, in front of your very eyes. Working with Becca Cosmetics, makeup artist/beauty YouTube vlogger Jaclyn Hill created a highlighter then unleashed it upon an unsuspecting public. The hype was huge! Almost epic, dare I say? And I fell for it. Hook, line and sinker. My first ever Becca purchase is the Becca X Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed - Champagne Pop. I am an evangelist for the youthful glow movement. I believe that a touch of luminosity well placed is just the thing every face at every age needs so it made sense to me to buy this item. Plus... It's so pretty!

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed - Champagne Pop - Packaging Overview notesfrommydressingtable.com

The box is a shiny rose gold with raised bubbles. I am a notorious rose gold magpie, coat anything in rose gold and you can be assured that I'll zero in on it. It was a dead cert that I would lock eyes on this packaging! When you open the box and slide out the compact it lands in your hand with a gentle, heavy plop! Weighty and tactile, the Becca packaging is unique and beautiful. It is industrial in it's look, with it's brushed metal top and bottom panels and brown rubberized trim. Becca is etched in the top, curving, twice all the way around. In the front edge is a typical snap closure.

Open the compact and in the lid is a full size mirror and more of the rubberized trim top and bottom. While it looks great, it's a pain in my ass to keep clean!

In the well of the compact is the powder. I was a bit surprised, when I first opened it to see just how warm and golden/peach it looked and honestly, I was skeptical that it would work for my fair skin.


There really isn't too much point to this photograph... I was screwing around, editing the pictures for this post and this one wanted to take me in this direction. It does give a nice close up of the product, so I decided to include it.

I dipped my fingers in to pick up a swatch and the texture of the powder is highly refined and gloriously soft but the press doesn't feel fragile. The colour is warmer, to my eye than it's description. Champagne Pop is more yellow gold and a bit more peach than pink. This is a heavy swatch, I didn't have to press hard on the surface of the powder to pick up this much product. It is very pigmented and has opacity without being thick, chalky, chunky or powdery.

Here a thick swatch. I wanted to show the glow and just how smooth and silky this powder is, on the skin.

Described as a "white gold with a pinky-peach under tone," some of the pictures and videos I saw were of this highlighter applied quite heavily, shown under very bright professional lights and it can pack a reflective punch! I had some trepidation, fearing that perhaps I was diving into deep, mirror infested waters. My fears were unfounded. When I apply Champagne Pop to my face with a soft highlight brush, it gives me a gentle, luminous glow that is not glittery or overtly sparkly. Controlling the amount applied prevents it from overwhelming and the effect is a beautiful, brushed by an angel wing glow that would flatter just about everyone. I don't notice this highlighter emphasizing pores or fine lines and my fears about the tone have been calmed, as well. This highlighter doesn't tone overly warm or gold/peach on my skin. I just see light.

I am fair, with neutral undertones and some creeping redness, (thanks. Obama! But, seriously, I turned fifty and turned red. What's up with that?) and this highlighter works for me. I've seen it on many different skin tones and it seems to be so pretty on just about everyone.

If you are ready to experience the effervescent light giving joy of Becca X Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Pop, I would suggest that you pick one up. While this is a limited edition item, it is still widely available in Sephora stores and on their website.

Do you own this pretty highlighter? What do you think of it? Do you like it as well as I do? Not as much? Spill your guts. Just... Do it on my kitchen floor, please. I'm out of Spot Shot.
