Champagne Bubbles

Colour Pop Champagne Bubbles Pressed Illuminator ($12.00 for 0.3 oz.) is a light-medium, golden yellow with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was yellower and lighter than it appeared in the pan–almost more of a yellow hue than a true gold. The texture was slightly drier, denser, and needed a heavier handed approach to pick up product evenly on it.

It applied evenly and blended out well, but I didn’t think it illuminated my skin as much as I anticipated as it appeared quite subtle despite having opaque coverage. It also had a slightly sweet, fruity scent to it (supposed to be a “sparkling pink grapefruit mimosa”). This product lasted well for eight hours on me before fading visibly.

I know I’m terrible but my first thought when I saw this was, “Oooh boy, the people at Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs are gonna be side-eyeing that design real hard.” It’s a lovely product and I love the aesthetic, I just wish it was a little more unique. The market is already flooded with highlighters, you have to really WOW me to get my money at this point. MAC’s recent Lunar New Year highlighter in Double Gleam with that gorgeous dragon press design was the first highlighter that really shouted at me since Givenchy’s Poudre Lumière Originelle from 2016 (I have a weakness for ornate powder press designs, they’re works of art in my eyes). But at this point I’m more of a collector than anything, so I’m more picky than the average enthusiast.

Hope ColourPop has some good lawyers, because they obviously stole Marc Jacobs package and product design! How foolhardy!(unless he never had his copywritten)

As for the shade itself, I’m not enthralled by it. I thankfully have better yellowish gold highlighters than this one.

I first thought it was a Marc Jacobs product as well. However, it is the same packaging as the Sol line from them. I have all three and the only difference in the outer packaging is the color and the push to open on the Marc Jacobs. I find the ColourPop ones harder to open and the mirror opens out at wider angle. The Marc Jacobs highlighter has a smaller pattern on it. The pan size is .25” smaller than MJ. That’s probably enough of a difference so that MJ can’t sue them?

I never really cared for corrugated-looking embossing like this. That aside, I think this is quite pretty, but I can’t pull off really yellow cheek products. I really want to rock yellow blush and highlighters, but no matter what I do, I end up looking jaundiced.

In my opinion that looks dry and my mind didn’t go to Marc Jacobs at all. I think colourpop has been doing this long enough to not be sued. There are plenty of brands that have similar packaging 🤷🏼that highlighter just looks blah and way too subtle.

Quite glad I passed on this and the liquid highlighter, WAY too subtle, and I really don’t like sparkle in my highlighters.

Just got this in the mail and quite disappointed. My brush wont pick it up. I have to really press hard into the product to pick it up. And I got the colourpop brush with it so, youd figure that would be the best shot. Sad I wasted the money on this.
