I talked about this briefly in last week's Sephora Order post, but here she is in a post all to herself.
I'm not familiar with Jaclyn Hill at all. I know that she has had an eyeshadow palette with Morphe Shadows (I reviewed mine here) and that she has done other collabs but I don't really watch any U.S youtubers so I hadn't seen much hype about this until it hit twitter and blogs.
Fellow bloggers Aisling , Sinead and Orla (aka Enablers #1, #2 and #3) were equally responsible for my level of want, but Sophistikat's snapchat contributed too. (It's also U.S Sephora exclusive, and I'm fairly sure that was half the reason I wanted it so much).
Here she is in all her glory!
I've never used any Becca products before, so I wasn't sure if this packaging was limited edition or not but the rest of the range seems to be the same, so it's just the box that's different.
Mine had a small crack in the powder that I just smoothed over but I was so glad that it didn't arrive shattered after all the handling between Sephora and Longford! The powder is soft, buttery, finely milled, and really pigmented.
I was a bit worried when Orla mentioned in her video that it tends to cling to problem areas because that's the one issue I have with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders. I swatched this on my arm and found it a bit daunting because of the pigmentation:
But I really like it on my face. This next swatch is a bit of an overload, and I wouldn't wear this much every day, but I'm really happy with it!
I love to wear it along where my cheekbones would be if I had any, plus on my browbone and a tiny bit down my nose - I was putting it on my top lip but it looked ridiculous, it's too pigmented to wear there (on me anyway). Also, moustache.
You can order the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop exclusively from Sephora.com - Sephora ship to Ireland via Parcel Motel. I have a guide to using Parcel Motel here. I didn't incur any customs charges on my order.
It's not going to be for everyone - I'm surprised I even like it so much given the disappointment with some other lust-haves - but I'm so glad I went for it and it's gone straight to the top of my favourite highlighters list.
