Becca Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Review

CP1*Purchased by me

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).

CP4Here 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.

CP5Same order, different lighting.

One thing I did notice is that Champagne Pop is quite similar to the Mary Kay Mineral Eyeshadow in Honey Spice.

cp11Champagne Pop, 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?

    So which do you think are better? I don’t own any Becca. Believe hype is pushing this product brand. I do have Wet n Wild, Laura Geller and It Cosmetics. Have been interested in Mac and Estee Lauder. I read on a blogger list once that they felt Josie Maran had the best highlighters. I want one that blends seamlessly between my blush and under eye highlight.

      I love the Josie Maran liquid highlight! If I had to pick a favorite highlight from any brand, I would probably choose something from MAC. I love MSFs, and the cream colour bases are amazing highlighters too (I like Hush, Pearl, and Shell). I haven’t tried any Estee Lauder highlighters yet!

    What a timely post! Yesterday I bought one of L’oreal’s new True Match Lumi powder glow illuminators (come in a liquid, too.). Comes in 3 different color options for cool, neutral and warm skin tones. I bought the neutral, which is called “Rose.” The highlighter is a quad of colors: rose tones and also whitish and champagne like. The quality is superb! The powder is soft, almost creamy, when you brush your finger across it. There is a delicate shimmer and glow, but NO glitter or massive sparkle effect. The “sparkle” is limited to a tiny, fine milled effect. The colors are beautiful alone or blended altogether. It’s the best highlighter I’ve tried, and I’m a highlighter junkie! The effect of this illuminator really is beautiful on the skin- it’s not over the the top nor does it disappear on my redhead pale skin. The cool version of this True Match Lumi in Cool is very interesting. It has shades of blue, green, pink and white. I would imagine the green and blue are there for color correctors- I dunno. Would love to hear from someone who has this before I buy it which will be soon no doubt. I’m a cool skin tone leaning heavy on being neutral, so I have a wonderful excuse to have both! 🙂

      I have seen the new L’Oreal highlighters, but I haven’t tried them yet. Thanks for the feedback! I might have to check them out! 😀
