This product likely needs no introduction, as it was created by Becca and the very popular Jaclyn Hill on YouTube. I didn’t buy this because of her, but because the description sounded totally up my alley: “soft white gold with pinky peach undertones”.
This product comes in the standard Becca packaging, which always reminds me of a UFO. I do like that it is unique compared to other brands.
I think this is a beautiful highlighter, but over-hyped. The color is very nice and it is one that will flatter all sorts of skin colors. It is pigmented, but not insanely so; it’s pretty easy to sheer out.
I find the texture to be a little chunky and powdery, but it’s easy to blend. On my skin, I have to be super careful because it really accentuates pores and makes my skin look textured where it isn’t. It isn’t: “put this on and it looks amazing.” For me, it took some trial and error to get it to look just right.
Although it is beautiful and I’m going to keep it, I wouldn’t repurchase (it is limited edition, but I wouldn’t get it again in the future if it were still around).
Here are some comparisons to other highlighters, from left to right: MAC Soft n Gentle, Laura Mercier Spellbound, Becca Champagne Pop, MAC Perfect Topping, ColourPop Highly Waisted, Becca Opal (liquid), MAC Diamonds, Wet ‘n’ Wild Fergie Rose Golden Goddess.
One thing I did notice is that Champagne Pop is quite similar to the Mary Kay Mineral Eyeshadow in Honey Spice.
Honey Spice is a little lighter and cooler in tone, but when they are applied to the skin they look pretty similar. I do really like using Champagne Pop to highlight my eyes! Plus, Champagne Pop is $38 and Honey Spice is $7.
Overall, I think this is a beautiful highlight but there are better ones out there, in my humble opinion. 🙂
Did you get Champagne Pop? What do you think of it?
