Jaclyn Hill can do no wrong. She is beautiful, she is talented – and she is a sassy, smart businesswoman to boot. Since her initial praise of Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Opal back in the day, she has since been catapulted to interweb-fame and ended up collaborating with the company on her own Pressed Perfector. Dreams.
Unless you are clinically dead, you’ve probably seen her most recent release with Becca popping up everywhere. The original Champagne Pop is now available in Pressed and Poured form, and there’s an eyeshadow palette and face palette (with some of Becca’s lovely blushes) to boot! We are patiently waiting for this release at Space NK in the UK – however, you can currently pre-order on their website. Quick UK beauties, QUICK!
The original Shimmering Skin Perfectors in Pressed form are by far my favourite highlight formulations from Becca. As an oily gal, I find the poured and liquid formulas (unless I’m extremely careful) are a bit too glowy for me. Too glowy!? Sacrilege, I know. Such is the struggle.
Champagne Pop is a really beautiful, warm, shimmering light golden-peach. If applied with a fan brush and a light hand, this can be quite subtle, but you can ramp up the highlight as much as you wish using a slightly more dense brush. I think on a very dark skin tone this may come off as very bright-white and be a bit too shiny for day to day – but you do you. On fair to medium skin tones, this is a truly beautiful highlight. If applied very lightly, it just makes you look well – y’know? Great for those lacklustre skin days. If you’re a little more tanned, this is truly beautiful atop a little bronzer.
The powder itself is finely milled, almost creamy to touch, and super pigmented. It is, however, quite lightly pressed, so be aware – these do not tend to travel well! My SPP in Opal disintegrated when it came on a trip to France with me, and I had to have a minute’s silence.
I find that this lasts for a “normal” length of time on top of a liquid foundation base – 7-8 hours before starting to fade, which is about right for me.
This is definitely high-end, but you really do get a fantastic product here. One pan will last you for ages (unless you glow all out, all day er’day) and you look glowy without being glittery. I would hands down recommend this – if you own only one highlight, make it Champagne Pop!
