Becca recently launched a new palette in collaboration with Chrissy Teigen (INR 3680). It is a palette with four colours for the face, including two highlighters, one bronzer and one blush. This review is based on personal first impression.
Product Description: It features a Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in NEW Beach Nectar and Rose Gold, NEW Sunlit Bronzer in Malibu Soleil and NEW Luminous Blush in Hibiscus Bloom.
Packaging: The packaging of the product is literally everything! It comes in a beautiful rose gold box with such a pleasing design that I want to paint my room rose gold now (not a fan of pink, still want to do this so you can imagine how pretty it is). The exterior is in a glossy pink shade with a decent sized palette. A tiny sample of Becca Primer and directions to use come with the palette.
Palette Details: The palette as mentioned above consists of four colours.
- The Rose Gold Highlighter is a peachy undertoned highlighter, which is a repeat from Becca’s Rose Gold collection.
- The Hibiscus Bloom Blush is a soft pink blush with a hint of gold. This blush gives out a radiating glow and is highly pigmented.
- The Malibu Soleil Bronzer is a medium warm bronze also with a slight hint of gold. Just like the blush, it is also highly pigmented.
- The Beach Nectar Highlighter is a champagne peach tone highlighter.
The Rose Gold is with medium copper undertones and sparkling metallic sheen. I am not a fan of it as for me the sparkles are too large and it is not as creamy as other Becca Highlighters. However, the texture does not seem rough and has a buildable pigmentation. Also, it is a tad bit dark for light to medium skin tones. It faded from my face after about four hours. I would rather go for Anastasia’s Illuminator or Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop.
The blush and bronzer are amazing. They look shimmery but do not leave an over the top glittery look on your face at all. They’re both absolutely blendable and stayed on my skin for eight long hours. But a warning, start by using very tiny bits of it on your brush because these are highly pigmented. They do not seem as pigmented on their swatches, but trust me, when applied on face, the pigmentation shows up!
Apparently, Beach Nectar is Chrissy’s favourite highlighter shade. It is a soft and peachy coral shade with golden finish. The powder diffuses perfectly with the skin with great pigmentation. I can see why Chrissy loves it! It stayed on my face for about eight hours before appearing patchy.
Personal Pros and Cons:
- Comes with four different colours, so definitely worth the price.
- Breaks the monotony of regular matte shades with a hint of sparkles.
- So glad that the shimmers do not have any yellow gold undertones!
- Perfect kit with summer hues to travel.
- Dupeable with Becca’s previous products.
- Can be a little dark for light skin tones.
- Starts to give a patchy look after about eight hours.
- Can give extra pigmentation if worn too heavily.
Final Thoughts: Based on my initial swatches, I did not like it. But ever since I actually wore it on my face, I haven’t used any other blush and bronzer. Also, Beach Nectar is a beautiful shade, but I’d rather use it occasionally. And a no for Rose Gold from me.
If you are a fan of warmer cheek products, go for it! It is definitely worth the value. Definitely Recommended!
