Hello my lovelies,
I love highlighter, I feel as though in the past 2 years it has completely taken the beauty world by storm. For me, I can’t create a makeup look now without applying highlight it completely changes a look and creates the most beautiful glow. Who doesn’t want that!?
This highlighter by BECCA, has been a massive product in the highlighter world. I saw so many reviews and makeup looks with this that I just thought it was too beautiful not to have and I decided to bite the bullet at the start of 2017 and get my hands on it.
I picked this up in Space NK up until this point I didn’t even realise that they stocked BECCA, as soon as I had swatched it for myself I knew that I couldn’t not buy it, I couldn’t walk away. I fell in love, yes it was love at first site.
First off, I love the packaging. Slim, compact, sturdy and elegant. It also has a mirror – yes BECCA thought of it all. It is a very decent size pan and instantly you are mesmorised with how beautiful it is. Who doesn’t want a beautiful shimmering golden highlighter on their cheek bones!?
The highlighter itself is very pigmented, so if you are a little conservative with your highlighter I would be wary when sticking your brush in it – a little really does go a long way. If you are like me and you can never have enough highlighter on your face then this is a winner for you.
The shade, is absolutely stunning I mean truly stunning. The way the shade catches the light is incredible and looks gorgeous on so many skin tones. I would say if you are very pale then it wouldn’t work for you because of how golden it is and I would suggest looking at other shades that they do in the collection like Opal but I love this for my skin tone and I can imagine it would look even better with a tan and on darker skin tones.
Just to put into perspective how pigmented it is, I swirled my finger in a circle to get this pigmentation – impressive right? Because it is so beautiful I don’t actually wear this on a daily basis as I don’t feel as though it warrants this highlighter – isn’t that bad!? This really is the best highlighter I have ever come into contact with and people that don’t like this – I don’t understand.
BECCA are at the top of the highlighter world with this one and I don’t even know what will ever beat this to my number one spot. If you have never swatched this before – I would seriously recommend getting down to your local stockist and trying it out. I guarantee that you will fall in love with this product like I did.
I will be definitely purchasing the other shades of the Shimmer Skin Perfectors in the near future, but with the price tag I won’t be buying them all at once. I am sure I will love them as much as Champagne Pop.
Have you tried Champagne Pop before? What are your thoughts on this? Do you have a dupe for this that you would recommend?
