It’s July 16th! For those who don’t know, Jaclyn Hill’s collaboration with Becca Cosmetics drops in all Sephora stores today, Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38, 0.28 oz)!

 Usually, I am not one for the big limited edition hype of products (not worth the headache of waiting then hoping you get one), but Champagne Pop was on Sephora’s home page and I easily purchased it. With Champagne Pop being available for purchase online for two weeks now and people getting 10+ backups, it just seems like so many are in circulation/being sold. I don’t think it’s one of those limited edition products that will be very hard to get (but who knows!)

This is my first Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed. I always swatch Opal when I’m at Sephora (just so beautiful!!!!) and just when I was about to take the leap, Jaclyn’s collaboration was announced. 

Champagne Pop comes in the same case as all of the other Shimmering Skin Perfectors, with a clear plastic cover on the actual highlighter that says Becca and Jaclyn Hill. I didn’t expect the product itself to be so fragile (It had been through a couple bumps during the delivery and it came with a couple small pieces of highlight broken outside the pan). For those who want to travel with it, I would suggest packing it with cotton balls and then shutting the lid to keep the product as secure as possible.

Champagne Pop is described as, "a soft white, gold shade with pinky peach undertones".

The formula is so soft and applies so evenly. The powder is milled so finely, the texture is almost buttery. This makes it very easy to blow out your highlight but a fan brush makes it very easy to sheer out. I think it would work for those who love strong highlights and for those who prefer applying their highlight with a lighter hand. With my more oily skin I prefer a more natural highlight and Champagne Pop at it’s sheerest is so beautiful. I am around an NW30 and I've seen it looking amazing on those of all skin tones. It lasts around seven hours on me and I don't find that it emphasizes any pores or skin texture when it's applied on the more sheer side. Like with all powder highlights, I would not use this on nose area at all, but I love it in the inner corners of the eyes and on the brown bone.

Everyone has noticed that Champagne Pop is an exact match for Opal and Moonstone mixed. If you own both or even if you only own one, you may want to skip out on this.

Champagne Pop is available at sephora.com and at Sephora stores. What do you guys think? Will you be purchasing this?
