Becca Champagne Collection Face Palette

Becca Champagne Collection Face Palette
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.

Overall, it is a nice cheek palette, though it leans very warm and coral-toned with three of five having higher-sheen finishes so it’ll be best for those who like their golds and pink-corals and more of a metallic finish than a subtle highlight. I think making either Rose Spritz or Pamplemousse more of a cooler-toned shade would have helped make the palette more versatile (maybe a mauve or plum). The packaging is heft, very solid, and some might even find it a little too heavy to carry in an everyday bag. It clicks closed, and the lid stays up, so it is usable–probably some of the nicest cheek/face palette packaging released in awhile. For me, personally, it’s very easy to wear on my coloring, and as they’re all blendable, they are easy to use as well. I could definitely see traveling with this one.

Champagne Pop is a pop of warm, peachy-orange gold with a strong, frosted finish. It is definitely the type of highlighter where a little goes a long way, and I think there is a small learning curve when using Becca’shighlights–a lighter, feathery brush and a lighter hand, as they are very pigmented, is recipe for great results. The texture felt a little drier and looser in the pan (to the touch) compared to my standalone version, which I found true in the Champagne Glow trio and the Afterglow palette. The standalone is just creamier and smoother; it feels more luxurious, but oddly, they really perform the same. They look the same applied, the color is within range between versions (especially once blended out/applied but the version in this palette seemed yellower to me but hard to distinguish the difference once applied to the face.

Prosecco Pop is a light-medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a frosted sheen. Side-by-side, it’s darker and has a stronger yellow tone (compared to the more peach-orange of Champagne Pop), and then blended out, it’s marginally darker and doesn’t have as strong of a white base to it. I feel like if it was a bit darker and deeper (a little more brown in it), it would be more contrasting next to Champagne Pop, but they are more similar than they are different. The texture was very blendable, though a little dry to the touch, and did emphasize pores slightly, even when I used a lighter hand/less dense brush (what I normally use with Becca’s highlighters, as they are very pigmented!). The color lasted for eight hours on me. Fenty Beauty Blonde (P, $25.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Addiction (P, $44.00) is darker (95% similar).

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

Rose Spritz is a bright pop of warmer pink with strong, golden frost that translated into a near-metallic sheen. I would say is too pink to be even a pink-coral but if you have very strong yellow undertones, it may end up looking more coral than pink once applied and blended out! The texture was blendable and fairly smooth, not quite as “dry” as the highlighters but not quite as creamy or as finely-milled as the standalone formula. It had rich pigmentation, which isn’t how the formula is billed (see more about that in my Luminous Blush reviews), so if you wanted a sheerer, buildable formula that really can be used as a “blush topper,” this might be a miss for you. On the other hand, if you like your blush very pigmented, this will be right up your alley. This shade wore well for eight hours and just stopped short of emphasizing pores on me. Laura Geller Fruit Punch (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Rose Gold (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, cooler (90% similar).

Amaretto is a slightly muted, medium-dark rosy brown with warm undertones and a smidgen of fine, gold pearl. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth, and blendable texture–no dryness present at all–that was easy to apply and use. As it wasn’t as shimmery as the prior three shades, there was no issue about pores or being more light-handed. The problem is that Becca, for reasons I don’t understand, says it’s a buildable formula, when it’s quite pigmented. The color lasted for eight hours on me before fading. theBalm Balm Desert (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). By Terry Savannah Love #5 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). KIKO 106 Beige Rose (P, $12.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Elegance (370) (P, $45.00) is lighter, warmer (95% similar). Stellar Beauty Eclipse (P, $25.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar).

See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Pamplemousse is a bright pop of medium-dark pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had very rich color payoff–a little went a long way–and I highly recommend using a light hand with this. The texture was smooth and blendable, but it had a slightly thinner feel to it compared to the other four shades in the palette. Again, the formula is supposed to have buildable coverage, but it is rather pigmented, so I think that if you prefer subtler, sheerer color, you are out of luck, and if you happen to prefer your blushes more pigmented, then it’s not a deal-breaker at all–it’s just contrary to what the brand claims. This shade lasted for eight and a half hours on me. NYX Peach (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Makeup Geek Love Affair (DC, $9.99) is cooler (95% similar). NARS Impudique (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, cooler (95% similar). Burberry Coral Pink (P, $42.00) is darker (90% similar). Milani Lady Rouge (06) (P, $8.99) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Chanel Duo N. 01 Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour

Chanel Duo No. 01 Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour
Chanel Duo No. 01 Les Beiges Healthy Glow Multi-Colour

Chanel Duo No. 01 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.” As far as higher-end, luxury-level powders, I found these to be sadly lacking in silkiness and smoothness; they just had a firmer, stiffer texture that made getting color coverage out of the shades difficult and harder to apply for a blended, seamless look. The coverage is as described–sheer–and somewhat buildable but mostly sheer to semi-opaque with several layers. I think a key aspect of a great highlighter and/or contouring product (and most cheek/face products) is blendability, and both shades were lacking that.

No. 01 (Top) is a medium-dark peachy-orange with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had sheer to semi-sheer coverage paired with a stiff consistency that was hard to get product off of the pan. I used a really dense brush and jabbed at the half of the pan in order to get color to show up on my skin tone. With extra effort, it blends out for a diffused look, but it’s one of the more time-consuming Chanel powders I’ve used in awhile. The color lasted for seven hours on me. Make Up For Ever B304 (P, $23.00) is lighter (95% similar). Tarte Sensual (P, $28.00) is cooler (90% similar). Too Faced Pinch My Peach (P, $30.00) is brighter, cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

No. 01 (Bottom) is a dark brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had sheer coverage and a drier, firmer texture that was harder to apply evenly. It does work well for contouring, and I liked how it wasn’t overly warm-toned as a lot of contouring products can be. The satin-to-matte finish also made it appear more shadowy on the skin, as it looked like skin. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours. Illamasqua Steal (P, ) is lighter (90% similar). MAC Swiss Chocolate (P, $23.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Naturally Enhanced (LE, $33.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Kat Von D Subconscious (P, ) is darker (90% similar). Anastasia Dusk (LE, ) is darker (90% similar). NYX Hollow (P, $5.00) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

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.

Light & Tan Vibes #1 is a medium, golden bronze with warm undertones and a fine, frosted shimmer. It had good color payoff paired with an incredibly smooth, silky texture that blended out effortlessly. The shimmer was just fine enough that it didn’t emphasize pores to my eye, but it gave a noticeable sheen. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Charlotte Tilbury Medium/Dark Bronze (P, ) is cooler (95% similar). Too Faced Jolie (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). Laura Mercier Seduction (P, $44.00) is darker (90% similar). theBalm Betty-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, lighter, warmer (90% similar). Too Faced Sun Bunny #1 (P, ) is warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Glo Up (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). NARS Casino (P, $36.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Poolside (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze (LE, $45.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). Becca Topaz (P, $38.00) is lighter, brighter, warmer (85% similar). Kevyn Aucoin Tropical Days (P, $48.00) is lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Light & Tan Vibes #2 is a softer, medium pink-coral with warm undertones and fine, gold frost that gives it a luminous finish. I think this is a shade that will look pinker and brighter on fairer and cooler skin tones, and then a bit warmer and more coral-like on warmer skin tones (like it does on me). The texture was soft, silky, and very lightly dusty, but it blended out beautifully on the skin and sat well without emphasizing pores or the skin’s natural texture. It lasted for just over eight hours on me before fading around the edges. This color is extremely dupable, though. Guerlain Blush G (LE, $65.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Fenty Beauty Yacht Life (P, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Becca Flowerchild (P, $32.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals The Natural High (P, $22.00) is darker, warmer (95% similar). Too Faced Peachy Keen (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar). Stila Peach Shimmer (LE, ) is warmer (95% similar). MAC Sweet Vision (LE, $28.00) is darker (95% similar). Bobbi Brown Antigua (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, lighter (95% similar). Chanel Rose Glacier (170) (LE, $45.00) is cooler (90% similar). Estee Lauder Wild Sunset (P, $34.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). theBalm Hot Mama (P, $21.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). MAC Springsheen (P, $23.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tarte Laugh (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Tarte Glisten (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Sunkiss Ribbon (LE, $70.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Milani Dolce Pink (P, $8.00) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Sleek MakeUP Rose Gold (P, $6.99) is more shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). KIKO 103 Golden Peach (P, $12.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Laura Geller Tropic Hues (P, $28.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). Laura Geller Fruit Punch (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Light & Tan Vibes #3 is a light, golden peach with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good color payoff, though this is a color that tends to get lost on my skin tone as once blended out, it just adds a sheen without pronounced color–on lighter skin tones, you might get more warmth and on darker skin tones, it might highlight more obviously. The texture had the same smooth, silky, and finely-milled as the other shades, and it was easy to blend out on the skin. From what I could tell, the sheen was visible for a good eight hours before it started to breakdown. Tarte Moonlight (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Highlighter (Softcore) (LE, $60.00) is warmer (95% similar). bareMinerals The Brilliant Sunset (LE, $26.00) is darker (90% similar). Milani Rosa Romantica (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). Hourglass Euphoric Strobe Light (P, $38.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Anastasia Forever Young (LE, ) is more shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Laura Geller Peach Glow (P, $26.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar). Surratt Beauty Coup de Genie (P, $32.00) is darker (90% similar). Physicians Formula Natural Glow (P, $12.99) is less shimmery, darker, less pigmented (95% similar). NARS Give In Take Blush II (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (85% similar). Suqqu Yawakouki (05) (P, $34.00) is less shimmery, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Light & Tan Vibes #4 is a light, golden beige with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. Again, it’s so close to my actual skin tone that it is hard to show it off in a full face photo–in the skin swatch, you can just barely see it. It doesn’t do much on my skin tone, but I could see it adding light warmth on very fair skin tones or helping to even out some complexions. The texture was finely-milled and soft, very blendable and sat well on the skin. It was hard to see the product on me, but based on what I could assess, it seemed to last eight hours. By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #4 (LE, ) is darker (95% similar). NARS Nico (P, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Light & Tan Vibes #5 is a muted, medium rosy brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. I found it to have a more noticeable glow on the skin than the lighter tan (#4) shade. It ended up being a subdued, natural-looking bronzing element on my skin tone, and I can see why it would work a treat for fairer complexions (the palette is designed for lighter skin tones, while the other palette was designed for darker skin tones). The texture was a little dusty, but it didn’t look powdery on the skin and blended out without immediately sheering out. On me, the color wore well for eight hours. By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #6 (LE, ) is darker, warmer (95% similar). MAC Optical (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Surratt Beauty La Rosée du Soir (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Colour Pop Aphrodisiac (P, $8.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Urban Decay Video (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Sensual (P, $28.00) is less shimmery, warmer (90% similar). Zoeva ND010 (P, ) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar). Hourglass Brilliant Nude (P, $38.00) is more shimmery, darker (85% similar). NARS Talia (Highlight) (P, ) is less shimmery, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Light & Tan Vibes #6 is a medium-dark brown with warm, yellow undertones and a satin finish. It had good color payoff, though it was the least pigmented in the palette, paired with a fairly soft, smooth texture. Oddly, it was a little firm in the pan compared to the other shades. I wouldn’t describe it as hard to use or to blend out, just that it wasn’t as effortless as most shades in the palettes were, so the difference was more noticeable as a result. This shade wore for eight and a half hours on me before fading. Tarte Social Butterfly (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Warmth (LE, ) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #5 (LE, ) is less shimmery (95% similar). Stila Sending My Love Bronzer (LE, ) is darker, warmer (90% similar). Colour Pop Paradise Cove (P, $8.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC I'll Hold My Breath #1 (LE, ) is warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals The Skinny Dip (P, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). Burberry Summer Glow (P, $48.00) is warmer (85% similar). Becca Wild Honey (P, $32.00) is lighter, warmer (90% similar). bareMinerals The High Dive (P, $24.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar).

By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise Sun Designer Palette ($82.00 for 0.53 oz.) includes six shades that can be used as highlighters, blushes, and/or bronzers. There are two variations, this and a lighter version with more muted shades on the left side (which I expect to review as well). 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.

Tan & Flash Cruise #2 is a bright, medium coral-orange with warm undertones and a soft, frosted finish. The pigmentation was intense and true-to-pan–a little went a good way. The powder had a very soft, silky feel to it, but it wasn’t dusty or powdery. It was easy to diffuse and blend out on the skin, and the color wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Tan & Flash Cruise #3 is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a pearly sheen. It had good color payoff paired with a soft, blendable texture that was silky and finely-milled and just a smidgen dusty. The color lasted for eight hours on me before fading noticeably.

Tan & Flash Cruise #4 is a light beige with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had opaque color coverage, but it blends in with my skin tone, so it may be hard to tell. On my skin tone, it tends to subtly highlight without adding a lot of color. This shade wore well for eight hours before fading. By Terry Light & Tan Vibes #4 (LE, ) is lighter (95% similar). NARS Nico (P, $30.00) is less shimmery, lighter (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Givenchy Moonlight Saison & Ambre Saison Les Saisons Healthy Glow Powders

Givenchy Moonlight Saison Healthy Glow Powder
Givenchy Moonlight Saison Healthy Glow Powder

Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder ($52.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a new “baked” powder that comes in five shades; one is a highlighter and four are in various bronzing hues. Some retailers have the highlighter/bronzer separated out, though they seem to be part of the same formula otherwise. I bought the highlighter and one of the bronzer shades to check out. The formula is decent with a very smooth texture, which has a firmer press and requires a dense brush or a heavy hand to get coverage out of it. The powder blends out fairly easily, wears eight hours, and neither shade emphasized pores/skin texture for me.

Givenchy Moonlight Saison Healthy Glow Powder ($52.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a very, very light white with subtle, warm tones and a satin finish. To the naked eye, I could just barely see a sheen on my skin, but it is very, very subtle. I don’t expect that the highlighter will work on that many skin tones, as it is very white-based and has little sheen, but very fair skin types who like subtler finishes may like it. It seemed to last about eight hours on me (harder for me to tell, given the color paired with my skin tone). It is actually described as “radiant” and for “strobing,” and it could function more as a finishing powder or setting powder for similarly-hued skin tones than it does as a highlighter. The shimmer/sheen is actually much less than the bronzer I picked up! Chanel Poudre Lumiere Glacee (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Shimmer Highlight (P, ) is more shimmery (95% similar). Fenty Beauty Metal Moon (P, $34.00) is more shimmery (95% similar).

Givenchy Ambre Saison Healthy Glow Powder ($52.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a medium, yellowed brown with warm undertones and a satin sheen. The texture was smooth, slightly firm (but not dry/stiff), and sat well on the skin. It produced a soft, lit-from-within kind of glow that didn’t look shimmery or emphasize the skin’s natural texture. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff. This shade wore well for eight hours on me. Chanel Original (P, $50.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Bronze (02) (P, $40.00) is less shimmery, darker, cooler (90% similar).

Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze Beach Shimmer Powder

Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze Beach Shimmer Powder
Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze Beach Shimmer Powder

Bobbi Brown Bikini Bronze Beach Shimmer Powder ($45.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark bronzy brown with subtle grayish tones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. Colour Pop The Golden Child (LE, $8.00) is more shimmery, lighter, cooler (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Bahama (LE, $38.00) is darker, cooler (85% similar). MAC Superb (P, $33.00) is more shimmery, warmer (90% similar). By Terry Light & Tan Vibes #1 (LE, ) is lighter, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s a new, limited edition formula/product for summer, which is supposed to give the “warmth and radiance of a natural tan.” It is heavily scented (and on purpose) with Bobbi Brown’s Beach scent, described as “notes of jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin.” There’s a lot of powderiness to the scent, which isn’t prevalent in the Beach fragrance I have from a few years ago. Unknown to me when I originally swatched it, the product is intended for decolletage, shoulders, and body, though for a body product, it is actually smaller than I would have expected–it is more in line with a typical face bronzer. The texture is firmer with a high amount of sparkle, so I can definitely see why it is more suitable to body bronzing than on the face. Nevertheless, it’s easier to show the result/coloring on the face, but rest assured I tested it on face and body, and once blended out, it doesn’t read nearly as sparkly as I anticipated–probably has to do with that stiffer texture. It blended out decently but could have been easier to work with. It lasted for eight hours before it started to fade, and if I had clothes that rubbed against the powder at all, it was much quicker to fade and isn’t transfer-proof at all.

The packaging might be the worst I’ve seen from Bobbi Brown; it is very, very thin, flimsy plastic–it felt more like the kind of temporary packaging you’d get when buying a refill pan or the like. There’s just no substance to it, and I was quite taken aback by it since it’s not an issue I’ve encountered with Bobbi Brown in the past.
