Becca Champagne Glow Shimmering Skin Perfector Palette ($34.00 for 0.26 oz.) includes three highlighters in white, peach-orange, and copper. The latter two have been released in full-sized, individual compacts previously, but this is the first time for the white highlighter (Pearl). If you like Becca’s highlighters, I don’t see why you wouldn’t like this palette, other than that you may already own two of the three shades. Like the Afterglow palette, the texture of the three powders seemed drier here, not quite as creamy or as finely-milled as the full-sized versions. It doesn’t seem to impact the overall appearance of them on the skin, and they’re still blendable and easy to apply. Becca’s highlighter formula is what I’d call a strong highlighter–intense, obvious, over-the-top–and a little goes a long way, so I recommend using a very feathery highlighting or fan brush to get a luminous sheen to avoid emphasizing pores.

Pearl is a pale, milky white with a frosted shimmer. The texture was fairly soft and smooth, but it felt a little dry–almost looser and not as dense as the full-sized pressed highlighters do. It had good pigmentation that could be blended out or built-up for a really high-shine sheen. The highlighter lasted for eight hours on me. Becca Pearl (DC, $38.00) is less shimmery (95% similar).

Champagne Pop is a light-medium, golden orange with warm undertones and a frosted, almost metallic sheen. Again, the texture felt looser, a little dry, compared to the full-sized version I have from earlier this year. It doesn’t feel particularly dry (certainly not crumbly or stiff), but I think one of the more standout characteristics of Becca’s pressed highlighters is that creaminess, that richness, which I don’t quite get here. Luckily, it still applies easily, blends and diffuses on the skin, and lasted for eight hours without emphasizing pores. Melt Cosmetics Gold Ore (P, $39.00) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Ciate Celestial (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Chanel Ivory Gold (10) (P, $58.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar).

Blushed Copper is a medium-dark, coppery brown with warm, reddish undertones and a frosted sheen. It was intensely pigmented with a soft, blendable consistency. This one is metallic enough that it emphasizes pores if I’m not careful with my application. I’m medium in complexion (MAC NC25-NC30), and it works as a highlighting blush on me, as it does yield visible color on my skin tone. If you’re fairer than I and aren’t sure how to use it, you can use it with a fan brush for even subtler warmth, or you can mix it with Pearl or Champagne Pop to lighten.

Wow, they all look lovely on you! I got the Afterglow palette and love it, but haven’t had a chance to mix the shades yet, will give that a try

Nancy T Avatar

Such a gorgeous looking trio! I really like this one quite a bit, and I believe just about everyone could use it due to all 3 shades being blendable with one another. As I had said previously, I just don’t know whether it’s something I actually need with MAC Shaft Of Gold coming to me? Plus already owning CP Butterfly Beach, Poolside and Quarters? But I WOULD buy this if I didn’t already have so many similar shades!

I love the lip-color combination on you Christine! 🙂 I just received the Opal Glow on the go palette and this was the first time I tried the powder formulation of the shimmering skin perfectors and I know they aren’t for me! I mean they are pretty good but seeing how subtle the liquid version is I was expecting something less sparkly and more creamy and somehow what I received wasn’t! Long story short, I am sort of on the fence about getting any more of the powder versions, be it palettes or full size! Much happier just slathering the liquid all over my face ha!

I am absolutely OBSESSED with this highlighter palette. For all the NW50-ish ladies out there, do not be afraid to get this. We can rock all three!

I’ve always been wary of highlighter because I felt as though it would make my oily skin look even oiler. Recently my friend lent me her Becca highlight in Opal. I’m absolutely in love!
I saw this palette in store and was underwhelmed seeing it in the palette. But looking at your swatches and actually applied, I think its the perfect palette to start my Becca collection!

Nicole Avatar

I have this and 100% agree with your review. I was concerned about the dryness when I swatched them. But, gladly I felt like it was okay ven on my skin which has been giving me a lot of issues with dryness. So far, I have only worn Pearl and Champagne Pop alone and mixed. I love all 3 mixed!

BonnieBBon Avatar

I really hope Becca releases pearl in a full sized pressed or poured version! I’m just throwing that out there in case anyone from becca is checking this out. That’s my vote ?

Kelly Avatar

First of all, your eye makeup is stunning! What eyeshadows/liners did you use? Second, I really wish they didn’t include Blushed Copper in this palette. Anyone with a paler complexion really can’t use it; Opal seems like it would’ve been a better choice as it looks fabulous on all complexions.

Abir Avatar

I actually think it was smart to include the copper tone. Opal is too close to champagne pop. And even though pale people can’t use the copper shade, it’s perfect for two things:
1. you can mix it with the other two shades to make them rosier
2. You can wear it over blush if you don’t have large pores.

Such a gorgeous looking trio. Could you please recomend a good highlighter for my NC 30 Indian skintone? I am too confused between Becca skin perfector and the Balm Mary lou Manizer. I prefer subtle highlighting.
Thanks
