Being a girl whose makeup kit contains way more than the acceptable amount of glow inducing products, I was shocked to find myself thinking that not all highlighter’s are made equal as I admired the delicate champagne glow from my latest purchase. Because finding the perfect highlighter can be quite a quest, the texture, the shade, too subtle, not subtle enough…. the glitter overload. But this is – The One.
The collaboration between the Australian brand Becca and respected makeup artist Jaclyn Hill have created a breathtaking highlighter that truly epitomise’s radiance.
The shade, a soft peachy champagne tone, so unbelievably flattering and universal for almost all skin shades. The texture velvety smooth. The pigment intense but in no way overdone. The glow visible but not faux, no visible glitter just a lit from within radiance offering an instant boost of life to even dullest of complexions.
Blend over the cheekbones, down the bridge of the nose, over the cupids bow, across the upper brow bone or keep it simple and stick to just above the cheeks. Apply and with a Sigma tapered face (f25) brush or angled blusher brush with a light hand during the day heavier at night. It’s similar to Dior’s amber diamond, but it’s not the same this really is candlelit glow perfection.
Is there a negative, well It’s a limited edition and is currently only available via Sephora (Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed – Champagne Pop) but coming in at approximately £30 including International shipping & taxes makes it easily justifiable. Feel free to check out Jacqueline here on how to apply Champagne Pop.
