Becca Champagne Collection Face Palette

Becca Champagne Collection Face Palette ($52.00 for 0.72 oz.) includes two highlighters and three blushes. Each highlighter contains 0.19 oz. of product ($51.57 worth), each Mineral blush contains 0.12 oz. ($38.40 worth), and the Luminous blush contains 0.10 oz. ($16.19 worth)–the palette has a total value of $106.16 or $10.40 per shade. I think there’s plenty of each product, and the size of each pan (even the smaller blushes) is appropriate and can be used with a slew of blush and highlighter brushes. Like other Becca palettes, the texture is noticeably drier and looser in the pan for the highlighters, compared to the standalone formula, which is something I notice more by feel and initial application, but it doesn’t seem to change the color, tone, or the way the product looks applied and blended on the skin (this is my only hesitation about the palette). Worth noting, Becca called out the Mineral Blushes as matte, but their interpretation of matte is more like true satin–there is a sheen to the skin but is not overly shimmery, and secondly, Becca seems to market their blushes as more buildable/medium in coverage but all three are very pigmented–this is, as a result, reflected in the rating but if you like your blushes pigmented, you should mentally bump up the ratings.

MAC Tryphaena and Cleopatra Pro Sculpting Creme Duo

MAC Tryphaena & Cleopatra Pro Sculpting Cream Duo ($33.00 for TBA oz.) has a highlighter and contour in a cream formula. The formula felt denser and had less slip than MAC’s Cream Colour Bases, and they are consistent with previously-released Pro Sculpting Creams (I have a review for them from 2012). I found them easy to apply and blend out with fingertips or synthetic brushes, as the texture was creamy with enough color payoff to show up on the skin but wasn’t so dense as to become difficult to use. They lasted for seven to eight hours on me.

Chanel Duo N. 02 Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour

Chanel Duo No. 02 Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour ($65.00 for 0.39 oz.) is supposed to be used as a highlighting and contouring powder duo that gives a “sheer, natural finish.” Between the two duos offered, this is the “better” one, but it still falls noticeably short when it comes to being blendable and easy to use. I just think that the texture is far too firm, too stiff, and it translates into application, which is where it really counts. For some, this might be a happy accident, but the darker “contour” shade here is far from “sheer.”

By Terry Light & Tan Vibes Sun Designer Palette

By Terry Light & Tan Vibes Sun Designer Palette ($82.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes six shades that can be used as highlighters, blushes, and/or bronzers. As I mentioned in my review of Tan & Flash Cruise, there was a lighter/mote muted option, and this is it. I had the same experience with this palette as I did with the other: I was impressed by the softness, blendability, and finish of these on the skin–they’re very easy to use and diffuse, and the finish is glowing without emphasizing pores. Despite being very soft and finely-milled, they’re not really powdery or dusty; they seem to have a decent amount of binder so they adhere well and don’t get messy in the pan. The wear varied from eight to eight and a half hours across the six shades.
