Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Pop

Hi!

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.

    1. Still not entirely sure if I'm putting it in the right place K, but at least I'm not using a bronzing brush to put it on any more.......fairly sure they could see me from the ISS :)

    1. Thanks Dani! I do too but maybe I wouldn't want it as much if it were easy to get, I always fall for 'limited edition' like a fool

    1. Thanks Zoe! MUA do gold and pink toned ones that might be worth a go, as is Catrice's new highlighter pen and The Balm Mary Lou-Manizer x

  9. This looks amazing on you. It really is a beaut. I just wish I had some spare cash to pick it up before it sells out for good.

  10. Looks beautiful on you Sharon, it's too pigmented for my tastes but have loved it on people in every review I've seen! I also know the pain of a gold moustache, maybe we could make it cool?
