Lancome Juicy Shakers

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend! A couple months ago, Lancôme released a line of lip oils called Juicy Shakers. The Juicy Shakers are made with “bi-phase technology.” The first phase is a non-sticky, transparent blend of five different oils that help moisturize and condition your lips. The second phase provides pigment for a light wash of color.

I purchased Great-Fruit (sparkling grapefruit) and Cherry Symphony (cherry pop). Great-Fruit had a peachy stain to it, while Cherry Symphony is a bright cherry red.

The Juicy Shakers are very easy to apply! All you do is shake the little tube (I think it looks like a cocktail mixer!), unscrew the cap, and dab the pigment-soaked cushion onto your lips, adding more or less til you reach your desired opacity. My personal favorite is Cherry Symphony. It gave me that just-ate-a-popsicle stain! Great-Fruit smelled amazing, but I didn’t see any noticeable change on my lips.

Although the oils don’t dry down, I found that they last a decent amount of time! I got roughly 3 hours of wear, with no eating and only sipping some water, before I re-applied. They also taste awesome! I’d previously tried the YSL Tint-in-Oils but I was never crazy about them because of the way they tasted. But the Juicy Shakers taste exactly how they smell! To me, the scent isn’t overpowering, but if you’re sensitive to scents you might want to sample these in-store prior to purchasing.

All in all, for $20 a pop, I think the Lancôme Juicy Shakers are excellent lip oils! The packaging is cute and sturdy, the scents & color ranges are great, and they do an awesome job of hydrating your lips. Although I love YSL’s cosmetic line, I think the Juicy Shakers are a much better alternative in terms of cost, shade range, and taste.

Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon Palette!

Hey everyone! Today I’m going to be reviewing the new Benefit Cosmetics Cheekathon Palette. Most of you have probably seen this palette in Sephora with the really cute display of KathleenLights, MannyMUA, and Patrick Starrr. This palette comes with 5 full-size blush pans (a $145 value) and retails for $58.

benefit cheekathon palette

The Cheekathon Palette contains full-size pans of Dandelion, Hoola, Rockateur, Coralista, and Dallas. I love the packaging of this! It’s made of cardboard, has a magnetic closure, and feels very sturdy. I love the illustration on the front. There’s a large mirror on the inside and the palette also comes with a flat brush like the one that comes with Benefit’s blushes and bronzers.

As you can see, most of the blushes in this palette are on the warm side, but Hoola is fairly neutral. I was hoping either Rockateur or Coralista could be used as a highlighter, but I think they’re both too dark.

The quality of this palette is consistent with the quality of Benefit’s permanent blush and bronzer line. All the colors swatch evenly and smoothly. The brush that comes with the palette is also decent quality. It’s a great shape and works great for both contouring and applying and blending blush.

All in all, I think this palette is really nice! It’s made well, the quality is great, and you get so much product for your money. The Cheekathon Palette would be great for someone who wanted to try out some blushes or was looking for a cheek palette to streamline their collection.

What about you? Is the Cheekathon Palette on your list? Let me know in the comments ❤

Anastasia Beverly Hills Lustrous Lip Gloss Set

Hey guys! As you guys know, I am a diehard fan of matte lips. I typically hate wearing lip gloss and avoid it at all costs. However, this season I’ve been seeing a lot of cute looks online that incorporate a glossy lip! So I started wondering… Am I missing out?

I saw that this Lustrous Lip Gloss Set by Anastasia Beverly Hills was on sale at Macy’s for only $20 (original price: $40), so I figured why not give it a go? I have seen many good things about Anastasia’s lip gloss collection and I decided that if I was going to delve into the world of lip glosses, I wanted to start with a range that was highly rated.

anastasia beverly hills lustrous lip gloss set

The Lustrous Lip Gloss Set contains eight different shades, ranging from sheer shimmers to creamy, vampy shades. Each gloss smells like cake batter and comes with a flat, rounded applicator. The applicator makes it easy to get a smooth line and an even coat, which keeps it from looking goopy on the lips.

Most of the shades in the set applied very well including Black Cherry, which I was skeptical about due to its intense pigmentation. Gilded and Metallic Rose are the two standout shades, in my opinion, as they are both really unique, flattering, and could transform any lip color/lip liner you paired them with. I decided I prefer the shimmer glosses over the solid color creams, but that is just personal preference on my part.

None of these glosses were sticky, feathered, or broke up during wear. This set is a fantastic deal, both at the $20 sale price or at the $40 retail price. I am extremely impressed with the longevity these glosses have and I really want to try more from the ABH range!

Who else is feeling glossy lips this summer? What are some of your favorites? ❤

May 3B Box!

Hey everyone! I got my first 3B Box in the mail last week. One of my friends who’s a K Beauty addict told me I should try this out, so I did! For those of you that haven’t heard of it, the 3B (Or Beauty Beyond Borders) Box is an Asian Beauty subscription box that gives you samples of popular products each month for only $12 per month.

may 2016 3b box

Here’s everything from the pouch. First off, I’m impressed with the amount of samples they send and the fact that you get a sheet mask too! As someone with super-dry skin, I can’t ever have too many of those.

Here’s a breakdown of everything I received:

  • Leaders Brightening Recovery Mask. This premium coconut gel mask contains Telangyn and Niacinamide to even out your skin tone and restore radiance to your skin for a glowing complexion.
  • Sulwhasoo Essential Firming Cream. This luxurious cream is blended with potent Korean medicinal herbs to instantly firm and tone while stimulating collagen for a long-term lift. Adlay millet detoxifies and promotes elasticity while pomegranate, green tea, and ginkgo fight free-radicals to maintain a youthful radiance. This can be used in place of your AM/PM moisturizer.
  • Skinfood Royal Honey Propolis Essence. Propolis extract is created by black bees and known as nature’s antibiotic. It’s anti-inflammatory, great for acne-prone skin, and non-comodogenic (which means it won’t clog your pores). This essence boasts an impressive list of ingredients with 50% black bee propolis extract, 20% royal jelly extract and 10% royal black honey extract. I’ve actually been using this the past few days. I think I’ll have to wait longer to see the full results but it has helped clear up the few small pimples I did have!
  • Dewytree Blackhead Out Nose Patch. Volcanic ash from Jeju Island and charcoal extracts clean out any clogged pores and remove blackheads. I typically try to shy away from strips because they can be hard on your pores, but I tried one of these and they actually worked very well! I had a couple clogged pores on my nose that were turning into whiteheads and these cleared them right up.
  • Aritaum Fresh Power Essence Pouch Sleeping Pack. Honey is one of our top ingredients thanks to its antibacterial properties and skin-boosting antioxidants. This sleeping mask is perfect for lathering on as your last step in your nighttime skincare routine and waking up with beautiful glowing skin.

All in all, I’m extremely impressed with the 3B Box! I’m already excited to see what June’s shipment will bring. Do any of you subscribe? Let me know in the comments. ❤

Dupe Alert: Morphe 35O vs. Juvia’s Place The Nubian Palette

Hey guys! As you know, warm-toned shadows are super popular right now. It mostly started with the Morphe 35O palette, but they’ve become widely available since other companies have released their own variations on the trend.

I recently stumbled across the brand Juvia’s Place after seeing some pictures of their palettes on Facebook. I fell in love with the Nubian 1 Palette and decided I needed it in my life. But, when it arrived, I noticed it was extremely similar to my Morphe 35O Palette!

morphe 35o and juvias place the nubian comparison

So naturally, I had to do some comparison swatches. Below is each shade of the Juvia’s Place Nubian Palette with its 35O dupe.

morphe 35o and juvias place swatches row 1

morphe 35o and juvias place swatches row 2

morphe 35o and juvias place swatches row 3

With the exception of the first shade in the second row, I was able to find an extremely close or exact dupe for every. single. color. The formulas are also exactly the same, which leads me to think they’re both repackaged from a generic brand. I’ve known that Morphe has done this for a while now, but I am surprised that two separate brands would each make a palette using almost the exact same colors.

Oddly enough, both palettes are around the same price, but you get 35 colors in the 35O versus only 12 in The Nubian. Clearly, the 35O would be the better deal, but I could see someone choosing The Nubian instead if they didn’t want or need a 35 pan palette.

Personally, I am going to be destashing The Nubian since I already own the 35O and don’t need them both. I suppose the moral of this story is to research swatches before you impulse buy a palette online!

Jeffree Star Beauty Killer Palette, Skin Frost Highlighters, and Gemini Liquid Lipstick!

Hey guys! I hope you’re all having a great week so far. Today, I have a mega review post for you—all Jeffree Star. I have the Beauty Killer Palette, the Skin Frost highlighters, and Gemini!

jeffree star beauty killer palette skin frost highlighters gemini liquid lipstick

Beauty Killer Palette. The Beauty Killer palette boasts 10 shades, each weighing about .09 oz. For reference, a standard MAC eyeshadow is .04 oz. The palette itself is cardboard with a magnetic closure and very slim. The shadows come in three different formulae: matte, frost, and glitter. The palette offers both bright and neutral shades. The pans are huge and are arranged into quads to easily create different looks.

jeffree star beauty-killer-swatches

All the shadows in this palette are super pigmented, but Rich Bitch is a bit of a problem child. It’s a beautiful shadow but feels a little gritty when swatched and is a bit of a struggle to apply evenly. The matte shadows do not feel chalky and are easy to work with. My personal favorite is Courtney. It’s such a beautiful shade and is perfect for those transitions! The glitter shadows are also easy to work with, but I do wish there was more glitter in the swatches. I suppose that’s a typical struggle with glitter shadows, though.

The Beauty Killer Palette retails for $45. Honestly, I think the price is a steal for what you get—10 gigantic shadows with a great formula. This palette would definitely be best for someone who is either very comfortable working with bright colors or is interested in trying them out. Overall, it’s an excellent palette and one you could use for a variety of looks. The fact that it contains a transition shade is a huge plus for me because that means you don’t have to pull in shadows from other palettes if you don’t want to!

Skin Frost Highlighters. I am straight up obsessed with these babies. Each compact contains 0.5 oz of product (roughly twice as much as a Becca Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector)! At $29, this product is a steal. I purchased the bundle to save a little cash and to get a chance to review them all. There are some slight discrepancies with the formula between shades. King Tut is much creamier and softer than Peach Goddess and Mint Condition, while Ice Cold feels a little less creamy and more dense.

jeffree star skin frost highlighter swatches

All of them swatch and apply beautifully though. Ice Cold is a white gold on my skin tone. I expected it to be a replica of Becca Pearl, but I actually think this highlighter is much more flattering. I also found that Ice Cold did not leave a white cast on the skin in indirect light. Peach Goddess is without a doubt my favorite of all the Skin Frosts! It’s beautiful in the pan but when applied, it looks like the most perfect peachy gold highlight. Mint Condition may look intimidating, but I found that unless I really packed it on my skin, it looked like a super unique silvery highlight, not straight-up green. King Tut is a beautiful bronze gold, but is much too dark for my skintone, like I suspected.

I would be remiss not to include that there have been reports surfacing online that these highlighters are easily damaged during shipping, particularly King Tut. I did not experience these issues and found that my order was very well packed, with each compact double-wrapped with bubble wrap and paper. However, since I bought the whole bundle AND the palette, that could be why mine didn’t shatter, since the box was very full. I think these are exquisite highlighters and that, unless you’re ordering King Tut, the risk is not large enough to justify not purchasing them. If you’re skeptical, you could always purchase them through Beautylish instead of the Jeffree Star site. I haven’t heard of as many incidents with orders purchased from there, but makeup is particularly fragile and damage during shipping is not necessarily unheard of. I think this is just something we makeup addicts have to deal with from time to time. Luckily, powder compacts can be repressed!

Like I said above, I think the Skin Frost highlighters are exquisite. They are high-quality, unique colors, and very reasonably priced when you consider how much product you’re actually getting. I cannot wait for Jeffree to release more colors in the future, because I will likely want them all!

Gemini Velour Liquid Lipstick. I have discussed the Velour Liquid Lipsticks a few different times on my blog. I recently used Gemini in an FOTD that I posted.

jeffree star gemini liquid lipstick urban decay glitter

It is described as a “terracotta warm-toned nude.” It actually reminds me a lot of Kat Von D’s Lolita II, but it’s not as orange. I found Gemini to be extremely wearable and flattering on my skintone and the formula is just as awesome as ever. This is the first Velour Liquid Lipstick that I’ve purchased for several months and I have noticed a strong rootbeer float scent has been added to the formula. I am not particularly sensitive to scents, but since I’m not crazy about rootbeer (I know, I know) it was off-putting at first. However, the scent does not linger after the lipstick dries down, so I’m cool with it, but I wanted to mention the scent since I know there are people out there who greatly dislike scented cosmetics.

This concludes my Jeffree Star Cosmetics mega-review! Are any of these products on your wishlist? Let me know in the comments ❤

May Favorites!

Happy Sunday, everyone! May was such a great month for makeup. There were so many new releases that I’ll be posting soon. In the meantime, here are some of my personal favorites from the past month.

IMG_1384.JPG

  1. Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Face Palette. I recently posted a full review on this palette but I’m still crazy about it! The packaging, the blushes, the highlighters… Everything about it is A1. I highly recommend purchasing it.
  2. Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil. Since I have super-dry skin, I’m a big fan of mixing a few drops of oil in with my moisturizers. It helps keep my skin hydrated throughout the day. At $72, this oil is a bit pricey, but a little goes a long way. This oil is also 100% pure, unrefined marula kernel oil and contains no chemicals or added fragrance, making it great for sensitive skin. It’s also high in antioxidants and Omegas 6 and 9 and is great for hydration and healing your skin.
  3. Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Gemini. I’ve talked about how awesome Jeffree Star’s liquid lipsticks are in the past, but I am really feeling this shade for summer. It’s a really nice warm nude that’s extremely flattering.
  4. Jordana Sweet Cream Matte Liquid Lip Color. I picked this up on a whim when I was at KMart a couple weeks ago and I am very impressed by the formula! It’s been hard for me to find a drugstore liquid lipstick that dries completely down, but this Jordana one is great. It applies smoothly and evenly and has comparable lasting power to my other liquid lipsticks. The shade I got, Strawberry Cheesecake, is a beautiful coral pink. At only $5 each, you can afford to stock up on all the shades!
  5. Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Major Volume Mascara. I have had this deluxe sample for a while but only recently decided to start using it. It’s become one of my favorite mascaras, possibly even a holy grail! It gives me the length and volume that I get some Too Faced’s Better Than Sex, but this wand keeps my lashes from looking clumpy. I am definitely going to be purchasing a full-size after I use this up.
  6. Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals. I’m sure you’re all tired of hearing about these highlighters, but I am really impressed with the quality! I ended up purchasing this one on eBay for around $10 but it’s completely worth it to me. The formula is very creamy and pigmented, applies well and is very glowy! Crown of my Canopy, the darker shade, is of the same quality. If you can find these anywhere, I highly recommend getting them.

That wraps up this month’s favorites! What were some of yours? Let me know in the comments below ❤

Greed – 7 deadly sins FOTD

This is a look I did in collaboration with a few other beauty bloggers/enthusiasts. Our theme was the 7 deadly sins. I chose to do Greed. ✨

7 deadly sins greed makeup gold glitter

gold glitter lips jeffree star gemini

For this look, I knew I wanted to incorporate gold glitter. But I also wanted to use a lot of products to really get into a mindset of greed and make this look truly excessive. Here’s what I used!

products used for greed makeup

Face:

  • Make Up For Ever HD Foundation in N115
  • Revlon Photoready Insta-Fix Foundation Stick
  • Sephora Bright Future green color corrector & Gel Serum Concealer in Meringue
  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Contour Kit in Fair (not pictured)
  • Sephora Contour Powder in Tranquil
  • Becca Cosmetics x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Glow Face Palette – Prosecco Pop
  • Sleek Makeup Solstice Highlighting Palette – Equinox
  • Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals (yes, I stacked 3 highlighters to get that glow!)
  • NARS blush in Orgasm
  • Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel cream bronzer
  • RCMA No Color Loose Powder (not pictured)

Brows:

  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Taupe
  • Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel

Eyes:

  • Morphe 35O Palette
  • Equinox from Sleek Makeup Palette for inner corner highlight
  • Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Midnight Cowboy
  • Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara (THE BEST mascara. New fave!)

Lips:

  • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Gemini
  • Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Liner in Midnight Cowboy

First impressions: I used several products for the first time with this look. I’ll just list them out with mini-reviews:

  • Morphe 35O Palette. I’ve had this for a long time but other than playing around with it when I first got it, I never really reach for it. Now that I’ve used it for a whole eye look, I don’t know why I haven’t! The mattes blended beautifully and the dark gold metallic shade I used for a lid base applied smoothly and I didn’t need to use Fix+ to make it pop like with other metallics.
  • Wet N Wild MegaGlo Highlighter. I was lucky enough to find both shades on eBay for a decent price, but you guys seriously need them. I’m sure literally every other blogger has told you that, but if you can find them, buy them immediately! Precious Petals is such a beautiful color.
  • Sleek Solstice Palette. I bought this because of Jaclyn Hill’s mini Snapchat review and I have no ragrets. It comes with 4 different colors, but because it’s less than $20, I felt comfortable buying it just for the shade Equinox. That’s the crown jewel of this palette for sure. I’ve never seen a highlighter before that was so glowy and just BAM when you apply it!
  • Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Gemini. This is the first Jeffree Star liquid lipstick that I’ve bought in a while. While I’m not sure how I feel about the rootbeer float scent, the formula is still amazing and I think the color is so flattering.
  • RCMA No Color Loose Powder. I purchased this after hearing so many rave reviews about it, but I think I’m still partial to Laura Mercier’s Translucent Powder more. This one did the job, and the price is definitely right, but I feel like it just sucked what little moisture was to be had out of my undereyes.
  • Anastasia Cream Contour Kit in Fair. This was given to me by a friend. I have to say that I was underwhelmed by the formula of the creams. I expected them to be easier to work with. Luckily, I’d watched Miss Jazmina D work with hers enough on Snapchat and learned that you could apply it under your foundation. I did that and found that I liked how it looked much better that way. It was still tough to blend out at parts, but at least I didn’t have to worry about messing up my foundation while doing it. I’ll probably continue to use this kit, but only for nights out or when I have a lot of time to dedicate to my makeup.

Have you guys used any of these products too? What were your faves/flops? Be sure to follow me on Bloglovin! ❤

Play! by Sephora – May 2016

Hey everyone! Who else is ready for this long Memorial Day Weekend? I got my first Play! by Sephora box a few days ago. I was really excited to get it because, like most of you, I am obsessed with Sephora. I hoard their deluxe sample promos like crazy. When I first heard they were doing a beauty box, I signed up immediately. I just got taken off the waiting list this month.

I’m also a big fan of beauty boxes but I haven’t found one yet that I’m consistently satisfied with. Because I shop so frequently at Sephora, I have really high hopes for this box in the long term!

play by sephora subscription box

The theme of this month’s box is The Forces of Nature. This box is all about discovering beauty products that are “high-performing—and good for you, too.” All of the products in this box are derived from natural ingredients.

Here’s what I received this month:

  • Orange Sanguine by Atelier Cologne. “A refreshing burst of sweet blood orange and bitter orange peel paired with notes of geranium.” Orange Sanguine is part of Atelier Cologne’s Collection Originale, which is made using high concentrations of essential oils to create fresh citrus scents. This perfume smells so citrusy! It’s very potent but I love the scent.
  • Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Kimchi. “Handcrafted, high-pigment lipstick delivers intense hydration using twelve edible oils.” This lipstick contains coconut oil, which is “highly anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and hydrating,” and pomegranate oil, which “moisturizes and protects from environmental damage with antioxidants.” Bite Beauty creates all its lipsticks using food-grade ingredients that are antioxidant-rich and made in small batches. I love Bite’s new Amuse Bouche formula. It’s so pigmented and creamy. Kimchi is such a bold, vivid pink!
  • Tarte Tarteist Lip Crayon in Latergram. “Prime and line with this lip crayon that nurtures with Vitamin E and antioxidants.” Vitamin E is a “natural preservative that nurtures dry skin and helps protect from free radicals.” This lip pencil contains mineral pigments which “produce vibrant, long-lasting color and help to soothe the skin.” The mineral pigments in Tarte’s products are made by crushing actual earth minerals into fine powders and contain no synthetic counterparts, so they’re perfect for sensitive skin. Latergram is a beautiful warm, terracotta/rusty nude. The formula is really nice and applies smoothly.
  • Origins Maskimizer, Drink Up, and Clear Improvement masks. “Innovative priming mist optimizes skin’s condition, while the charcoal mask cleases and the the overnight mask deeply moisturizes.” These products contain: marine algae, a “powerful anti-irritant that helps to soothe and calm the skin;” bamboo charcoal, which “deeply purifies, draws out impurities, and unclogs pores;” white china clay, which “absorbs toxins and balances while being ultra-gentle on skin;” apricot kernel oil, which is a “non-greasy oil that nurtures and hydrates;” and japanese seaweed, which “helps repair skin, which prevents moisture loss and signs of aging.” In partnership with American Forests’ Global ReLeaf Project, Origins has planted over 500,000 trees around the globe.
  • Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial. “Lightweight overnight facial treatment melts into skin to brighten and moisturize with wild rose oil.” This facial contains wild rose oil which is “rich in Vitamin C for helping even skin tone and visibly improve fine lines.” Based in Athens, Korres works with local farmers to produce botanicals and other natural ingredients that are unique to Greece’s climate.
  • Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask. “Intensely hydrating hair treatment made with naturally derived ingredients to restore and replenish.” This conditioning mask contains argan oil, which is a “potent multitasking oil that repairs, softens, and reduces frizz,” and avocado oil which “deep conditions and enhances shine without weighing down hair.” Briogeo’s founder was inspired to start a cosmetics company by her grandmother, who harvested raw ingredients from her own farm to make hair care products.

In addition to these samples, this box comes with a card to present in a Sephora store to receive expert advice and to receive 50 bonus Beauty Insider points with any purchase. Overall, I’m very pleased with my first Play! by Sephora box! This beauty box is definitely worth the $10 monthly fee and is perfect for someone who wants to try out the brands Sephora has to offer without breaking the bank.

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette

Hey everyone! As most of you know, Becca and Jaclyn Hill teamed up to release a whole range of products in the new Champagne Collection. The whole collection releases May 26 exclusively on the Sephora website, including this face palette and an eyeshadow palette, poured Shimmering Skin Perfector, and liquid Shimmering Skin Perfector.

Luckily, Sephora released a few face palettes on the site last week so I scooped it up to review!

The Champagne Collection Face Palette contains three blushes, Champagne Pop, and Prosecco Pop. Rose Spritz contains 0.1 oz of product, Amaretto and Pamplemousse contain 0.12 oz of product, and both highlighters contain 0.19 oz of product each. According to Temptalia’s calculations, that means this palette has a total value of $106.16, which is more than twice the retail price!

First impressions of the packaging: luxe, sturdy, and well-designed. This palette does not feel cheap at all. The palette snaps closed, which adds extra stability especially since the pans are so soft.

The blush pans are all a decent size and I was able to use my usual brush with ease. The highlighter pans are large and I was able to use my large fan brush without dipping into the other pans.

The blushes are so pigmented! I was extremely surprised that they were so vivid since Becca’s blush formula is supposed to be light, sheer coverage. Rose Spritz reminds me a lot of NARS Orgasm and gives that perfect glowy sheen. Amaretto is a warm, rosy brown. This color is really great for warming up the complexion to make my face look a little sunkissed, but this color could also probably double as a bronzer in a pinch! Pamplemousse is… wow. So pigmented. So bright. It looks borderline neon on me and makes me look a little sunburned, but I think the right person could wear this well.

I own the full-size Champagne Pop and while there’s no color difference between the two, but I noticed the formula in this palette is a little drier than the original. This doesn’t really affect the application, but there is a bit more powder kicked up with the brush. Prosecco Pop is a true gold highlighter. It is slightly dark for me, but if I mix a little Champagne Pop in when I apply it, it works just fine!

Overall, I think this palette is a great release by Becca. The color selection works for a wide variety of skintones, the quality is A1, and you definitely get your money’s worth. This product is limited edition, so be sure to buy it as soon as it’s released! ❤
