Becca (and highlighter) lovers rejoice! We’re only a day away from the launch of Becca’s collaboration with Jaclyn Hill: The Champagne Collection and it’s gonna get crazy!

Following in the footsteps of Becca’s very first collaboration with Jaclyn Hill, which brought us the cult favorite Champagne Pop highlighter, this collection already has so much buzz around it. Lets take a close look at what’s about to hit the shelves…
Becca Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection
With continuous demand and interest for the original Champagne Pop highlighter, I guess a follow up collaboration makes perfect sense. I personally didn’t expect it to have so many pieces within it, but more the merrier I say. Here’s a break down of The Champagne Collection:
CHAMPAGNE POP HIGHLIGHTER in POWDER, LIQUID and PRESSED CREAM FORMULAS
Along with the existing Champagne Pop highlighter in powder version, this collection brings a liquid and also a pressed cream formula into the mix. This is great as all of Becca’s permanent highlighters come in these 3 different formulas so considering how popular Champagne Pop shade is, it’s good to have it available in a variety of formulas now.
Champagne Pop Liquid is $41 (1.7oz); Champagne Pop Pressed Cream is $38 (0.19oz); Champagne Pop Powder is $38 (0.28oz)
CHAMPAGNE COLLECTION FACE PALETTE $52-
A limited edition highlighter/blush palette, this is what a lot of people are already going crazy over. It features the original Champagne Pop powder highlighter (0.19oz), the new Prosecco Pop powder highlighter (0.19oz) and 3 small blushes. The difference between Champagne Pop and Prosecco Pop is that: Champagne Pop has warmer almost peachy undertones whereas the new Prosecco is more of a yellow/true gold undertone.
The blushes – left to right are: Rose Spritz which is a warm pink with golden shimmer throughout; Amaretto is a soft tan/brown with pink undertones and though it’s described as a matte shade, it is in fact a satin finish with subtle gold sheen; Pamplemousse is a warm pink with a satin finish.
Being such a huge fan of Becca highlighters and blushes, I have no qualms about the quality or the color payoff of this palette. My only hang up is the Rose Spritz blush. Rose Spritz is basically the Pamplemousse blush mixed with either Champagne Pop or Prosecco Pop highlighter. I would have loved to have seen either a true coral, a matte mid/dark tone peach or even a cooler shade instead. Especially given the color variety in the next product coming up, this would have made the palette more versatile than to repeat a color. In any case, considering the amount of product you get, the palette is great value for money at $52.
CHAMPAGNE COLLECTION EYESHADOW PALETTE $40-
Last but not least is a limited edition eyeshadow palette, featuring 5 colors with a mix of matte and shimmer finishes. This palette definitely offers more variety in terms of warm and cool tones than the face palette. This is what I meant earlier when I said even a cool toned blush would have been a great addition to the face palette, to tie in with some of the cooler eyeshadow colors.
Left to right: Chardonnay (shimmer); Champagne Toast (shimmer); Cordial (matte) ; Cognac (matte); Bordeaux (matte)
Champagne Pop eyeshadow palette retails at $40 (5 x 0.06oz)
So here we are beauties, the much hyped about and anticipated launch from Becca in its entirety. The collection is exclusive to Sephora and available for online purchase Thursday May 26th; 9am PST (US & Ca) and in stores June 16th.
Let me know if you end up getting any (or all) of the collection and what your favorites are :)
