Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection | Preview and Swatches ♡




At 5:00pm on the dot, these beauties were in my basket being paid for. 

I kinda have a love/hate relationship with these 'YouTuber/Celebrity Limited Edition' stuff because I hate the feeling of maybe missing out and having to rush to beat everyone else in the queue, it's just not a comforting feeling.

However, finally being the proud owner of a couple of limited edition products makes me feel so excited. So that's my love/hate relationship explained for ya!

As soon as I heard Jaclyn Hill reveal her collection on snapchat, I was all over it like a mad woman. I mean just look how b e a u t i f u l these products are!

As you can see, I opted for both the face palette and the eyeshadow palette. I already own the Champagne Pop highlighter (which I am probably a little bit too obsessed with..) so I didn't really feel like I needed the 'creme' and 'liquid' versions of it.



This face palette is just stunning and the design of the packaging is so beautiful. I also love how this palette comes with a huge mirror inside which is super handy for on-the-go application.

I definitely feel like Jaclyn put her heart and soul into this palette - from the packaging, to the layout and design and also down to the shades of highlight and blush that are included. I wouldn't expect anything less from Jaclyn though as she never does anything half-heartedly, which is exactly why I trust every one of her recommendations and definitely all of her products.


Swatches L-R: Rosé Spritz, Amaretto, Pamplemousse, Champagne Pop, Prosecco Pop

The new highlight shade - Prosecco Pop - is a gorgeous warm gold with a yellow undertone, which, when mixed with Champagne Pop, creates the most gorgeous and slay-worthy highlight you have ever seen.

The other shades included in the palette are the ever famous Champagne Pop (soft white gold with peachy pink undertones), Luminous Blush in Rosé Spritz (soft peachy pink with pale gold shimmer), Mineral Blush in Amaretto (matte toasted almond) and Mineral Blush in Pamplemousse (matte warm coral pink).



The other product I briefly mentioned that I purchased was the eyeshadow palette. Now, we all know how obsessed I am with eyeshadow palette's so this purchase was a given really.

Again, the packaging is beautiful and really light weight. I think some people aren't liking how lightweight the packaging is and are saying that it feels 'cheap', but I disagree and I think the aim with this was that it's travel-friendly - which I really like.



The different shades within this palette are so pretty and quite unique - just like Jaclyn! It's not often you see an eyeshadow palette with this much versatility, especially with 5 shades! This definitely gets a massive thumbs up from me and I cannot wait to start using it.



Swatches L-R: Chardonnay, Champagne Toast, Cordial, Cognac, Bordeaux

The shades included in the palette are Chardonnay (sheer gold with flashes of pink and soft yellow), Champagne Toast (reflective peach with a dash of cinnamon), Cordial (matte rose with warm undertones), Cognac (flattering matte coffee), Bordeaux (rich matte wine with chocolate undertones).

I'm extremely excited to start using both of these palette's and I'm so lucky to have these limited edition beauties in my possession.

Congratulations to Jaclyn Hill for an awesome collaboration with Becca Cosmetics. This collection is absolutely stunning and I can't wait to see more from Jaclyn in the near future!


P.S. I now understand, from watching Jaclyn's snapchat story (jaclynrhill), that the eyeshadow palette is going to be eliminated from the collection due to over 50% of them having a dry and patchy formula. I cannot comment on this yet as I have only swatched the eyeshadows - mine seem fine, nice and creamy. However, I will have a review coming soon on both of these palettes once I have used them a lot and you will hear my verdict then!

    1. I definitely recommend you to :) I know.. It's such a shame and I feel extremely sorry for Jaclyn. I hope they can re-work the formula and bring it back out because it's a gorgeous palette. I haven't used mine yet but the swatches were really creamy and not patchy at all so hopefully I have an amazing one xo

  8. I definitely want to try out the cheek palette but there's no way I can afford it right now. Looks absolutely stunning though! I can't believe I haven't even tried Champagne Pop yet. I'm a little behind with these things haha. I would've loved to get the eyeshadow palette as well but since it's no longer available I can't.

    1. That's the only thing with limited edition beauty products, they always come out when none of us have enough money to get them! I had to put some money aside to be able to afford them! You definitely need to get your hands on Champagne Pop because it's so gorgeous!! I know, it's such a shame about the eyeshadow palette xo

  9. You're so lucky you got your hands on these they both look gorgeous - definitely need the eyeshadow palette in my life!

  15. The face palette is seriously calling my name! I didn't pick it up when it launched, but I kind of regret it. It looks amazing! I may pick it up during the restock! Love your review :)

  19. I saw these gorgeous palettes on Sephora's snapchat when they first released them and they just looked s o stunning. She seems to do such a good job! So I'm shocked and sad that her eyeshadow palette is discontinued as that was the one I was so interested in. Hopefully she will try again and I can make sure to get the next one. :)

    1. Jaclyn is amazing at what she does and she always gets it right! I'm really sad that it's had to be eliminated and it's such a shame that people are getting at her for it when she wasn't the one in the lab making them.. At least both her and Becca have been amazing about it and have listened to everyone's concerns and have got rid of it, rather than making a load of money from it - It's extremely lovely and honest and you don't see that often anymore. I hope it comes back with a new formula so that you're able to get your hands on it :) xo

  21. I hope your eyeshadow palette turns out to be ok (it seems you got a good one from the swatches!) - I'm so disappointed by the whole thing :( I only ordered the face palette so really hope there are no quality issues there as it looks beautiful - the shades are exactly what I want!

    1. I used it the other day and *touch wood* it seems to be a great one which I'm super pleased about! I know, it's really disappointing and I would have hated to have sent my eyeshadow palette back! The face palette is absolutely beautiful - you will love it! The quality of it is amazing :) xo
