Champagne Pop - BECCA

Currently I am high on highlighters. I simply can't get enough of that glowy finish it gives the skin. NikkieTutorials got me hooked on Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone and soon I wanted to try out more from Becca.

After getting over the fact that I dropped Moonstone right after I received my parcel from Sephora, I started using it and loved it! I had to press it two times because once it breaks, it will always be fragile. Unfortunately I can't take it with me for traveling because it will just break and create a highlighted chaos. I'll pass.

My old time favorite highlighter from Dior, Amber Diamond, was discontinued. So my search for the perfect replacement had begun. 

Moonstone is described as a pale gold and that pretty much hits the spot. Champagne Pop is a white gold with pinky peach undertones. I would say it is a skin colored highlighter with a warm gold finish. The powder is a bit dusty after I swirled my brush in it. I like to apply it with a fan brush or the highlighter brush from Zoeva.

Overall, Champagne Pop is a very nice highlighter. It gives the skin a glorious glow and can be build up to a very intense look. The pigmentation is great, it is not glittery and sits nice on the skin. The longevity is great, it lasts all day on me and looks pretty on the eyelids too. I did wet my eyeshadow brush after I dipped in the highlighter. This is better to prevent the powder from forming a seal.

Compared to Moonstone, this looks more like a skin like highlighter. I feel like it has more dimension than Moonstone. Moonstone is quite light and may be even too dark for my slightly tanned skin.

Honestly, I am not a big fan of the packaging. It looks nice, but is is very heavy, hence not great for traveling. The lid is not flat which makes it difficult to stack on top or place amongst the other powders. The rubber will make it look dirty fast. It does come with a mirror, that is always a plus.

The price is on the higher side €38, but you get a lot of product and the packaging is very sturdy. All in all you pay for good quality.

Do any of you own a Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector?

  3. I want so badly "Rosegold", but not as a highlighter but as a blush and eye makeup :)
    Jamina1404 made me fall in love with that product very madly :)

  4. You should actually follow Jaclyn on social media, especially Snapchat, and see who she really is. She's cried out to her fans who she actually calls friends about how much she loves and appreciates them, and knows that without them she'd be nowhere. She literally mentions every single day how lucky she is and how she's so undeserving of her success but feels so blessed (though she really is deserving since she's worked so hard to get to where she is today). I don't think it's fair to point out such a negative, hateful thing about someone you don't really know, either. I can confidently say though that she's a wonderful, sweet, honest, brilliant person and only wants the best for her friends and everyone around her, especially those who support her! (:

  5. Hi Simone! I was just catching up with Epica and getting myself excited to see you guys in San Francisco soon, and I discovered that you're just as into beauty & fashion as I am! It's pretty awesome seeing a badass, talented musician who has a variety of interests as well, especially ones like mine! Hopefully I'll get to meet you when you're here. In the mean time, would love for you to check out my blog as well :)
