Becca Champagne Collection Eye Colour Palette

Becca Champagne Collection Eye Colour Palette ($40.00 for 0.30 oz.) includes five neutral eyeshadows with two shimmery shades and three matte shades. All five were fairly blendable, pigmented, and easy enough to apply; this palette will be best for someone who likes warmer neutrals with semi-opaque, buildable coverage. It’s decent but not particularly impressive overall.

Chardonnay is a bright, yellowed white-gold with very high-shimmer content. The texture is denser and more silicone-like–almost feels like a cream–than other Becca eyeshadows I’ve tried (including the ones in this palette), so you might want to use a flatter, synthetic brush if you haven’t worked with the formula before (I used a Chikuhodo GSN-09 without issue, though). It had good pigmentation with a blendable consistency that sat well on the skin. This shade started to crease after seven and a half hours of wear on me.

Champagne Toast is a muted, medium copper-brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen paired with some looser sparkly bits. The texture was somewhat dry and prone to sheering out; it reminded me of eyeshadows with more of a glittery overspray/overlay where the glitter doesn’t bind as well with the base color and tends to get everywhere. I had a fair amount of fall out initially, and then there was some more as it wore on. The eyeshadow color lasted for seven hours on me. theBalm Fit (P, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar).

Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Cordial is a muted, medium pink-leaning mauve with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a thinner, somewhat dusty texture that kicked up some excess and tended to sheer out. As a lid color, I would highly recommend a primer underneath, and as a transition shade, it was easier to work with as it built-up fairly well and blended out nicely. This shade lasted for seven hours on me before fading noticeably. Urban Decay Laced (DC, $19.00) is cooler (95% similar). Wet 'n' Wild Silent Treatment #1 (PiP, )(95% similar).

Cognac is a slightly muted, medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a matte finish. The consistency was soft, lightly dusty, but very blendable and buildable to opaque coverage, though it was more semi-opaque without layering it on. It lasted for eight hours on me before creasing. Too Faced Mocha (PiP, $16.00) is warmer (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Stone (LE, $22.00) is warmer (95% similar). Sephora Hot Chocolate (LE, ) is darker (95% similar).

Bordeaux is a dark, plummy brown with warmer undertones and a satin-matte finish.

Hi Christine! I am just curious about “the world of you tube”. I’ve watched lots of channels and each one says how fabulous this palette is, a “must have”. That includes her other palette that includes the blushes. It seems like when each “you tuber” does a collaboration and the other channels view it, they all say how fabulous it is! Wondering if it’s the “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” thing. I used to enjoy watching the videos but, for me, they all seem to blend together now, if that makes sense.

Hi Wendy,

I’m not really active on YouTube, so I’m not sure if anything has changed, but generally, it really just depends on the relationship between the person and the brand/collaborator. Some companies engage influencers via press samples, others provide samples and compensation, and some don’t provide anything (a reviewer purchases). From my experience, I’ve very rarely received a pitch or offer from a brand that actually states that it requires a positive review, but I do not receive many as most of my contacts are well-aware that I don’t accept compensation for reviews so I’m probably not the best to speak on that aspect of the community!

Lisa Avatar

There are definitely some brands that will pay for positive reviews, or influence reviews in some other ways. (I recently got an offer for a “free” brush set that asked me to pay for the set, on the promise that after posting a positive review my money would be refunded. And of course some brands seek to discredit or harass people who post negative reviews.) But I think that also a lot of reviewers are (1) concerned with maintaining relationships and goodwill with brands and (2) influenced by the opinions of other reviewers, so that even if they’re not consciously posting a dishonest review they might be more apt to overlook issues with the product.

I loved the idea of this palette, the colors as they look in the pan go well together. But I’m glad I ended up just ordering the face palette πŸ˜›

Dina Avatar

This collection looks terrific on you, but as others have stated, I’m taking a pass on this one. There are too many good palettes out there for spring/summer.

Ray Avatar

Interesting review! From what Jaclyn has stated, she came up with the color/level of sparkle for the Champagne Toast shade and Becca kind of worked the rest of the palette around it.

Dena Avatar

You have been so busy this weekend. I do hope you will get a chance to relax. Thank-you for the heads up on the Lorac Pro 3 palette which I ordered and is being shipped to me now. Thank-you also for your hard work.

Meghan Avatar

I think the only one Jaclyn Hill actually had a hand in with this palette is the bronze one!

Anyway, all the YouTube review I saw about this palette said how amazing it was. I knew I should’ve waited for your review! I figured it’d be pretty dupable, but I missed out on the face palette, so it was a compensatory purchase for me… πŸ™

It will be back online June 16th. Just make sure to mark the date. I guess it will be around 12PM or the very early morning(0:00) east time.

Thank you so much for your honest review. Every YouTuber has been raving about this product. Then again they are using primers so I’m sure it definitely helps the shadow. I’m glad I waited. I’ll just swatch it in store. I have 4 dupes out of 5..so probably won’t be getting this. The only thing this palette has in its favor is how compact it is for traveling.

Thanks a lot for this revieuw! I was really looking forward to this review but that will be an “easy” pass for me. Easy in the sense that at this price tag, I expect/want the shadows to perform better. Even though a good technique, proper tools and a primer can make up for it I consider that a eyeshadow palette is good when it is a no brainer.

It’s too bad because it would have been a nicely packaged and portable glam’ look but I’m sure I’ll find item to spend my money on hehe!

This palette reminds me so much of the Carli Bybel palette by BH Cosmetics. It has the same range of colors, but with 10 eyeshadows and 4 highlighters. I mean, the quality isn’t amazing but it’s a good dupe for under $15!

Nique Avatar

Thanks so much for your review. Once again, your honest and thorough review saved me money. I had planned to purchase this, but now I will pass.

Maribeth Avatar

I think I will pass on this. The colors aren’t special and I have many dupes. I was going to purchase this a few days ago and almost did but it became sold out while putting it in my Sephora cart. The matte products look dry and patchy.

What a fabulous look on you, Christine! I bought this eyeshadow palette the minute it was available — no regrets. I love, love, love the new cheek palette, so if it’s even 1/3 as nice, it will be a hit for me. I’m sure it’s dupable, but I enjoy collecting. I think this will be great for travel and a quick eye look, esp. when I’m wearing the highlighters. I’m also a sucker for collaborations with YouTubers and bloggers; it’s really cool to see the cosmetics companies embrace them.

Lisa Avatar

I purchased it and can’t wait for it to get here to play with. I wish it would have scored better but I’m glad I will have it in my collection. I love the colors for an everyday “have no clue what I’m gonna do today” look. I also purchased the face palette, I don’t even like highlighters but I have a for real obsession with becca’s blushes. The eye look looks amazing on you, very pretty.

Sonya Avatar

I bought this even after reading your review – which for me, your reviews are typically spot-on. And this was no exception. When I got it I thought, ok, lovely little neutral and that is fine by me. But when I applied the shadows to my lid… meh. Champagne Toast is a fallout mess and the other shadows do not provide enough oomph to warrant keeping the pallet. So as much as I don’t like returning products, this one had to go back.
Thanks for consistently keeping your reviews very honest and true, you have saved me countless $ over the past few years. Why I thought I had to defy common sense this time, I’m not even going to try and rationalize.
smooch!

BECCA has (temporarily?) pulled the plug on this palette and it’s no longer being sold on Sephora. Why? Quality issues.

MayrA Avatar

I always come to your reviews. I love them.
Well it’s sad that you got the one from china. That’s why the eyeshadows didn’t swatch that good.
