Becca Review

Hi guys! I know, I know…we haven’t posted in a long time 🙁 But life got in the way. However, we are back and we hope you guys are ready for all the goodies we have for review.

Last week I purchased the new Becca x Chrissy Teigan Glow Face Palette. Becca did an amazing job designing the packaging for this prodict. The container is rose gold with the top part that looks like pink marble. Inside you have four pans, two highlighters in Rose Gold and Beach Nectar, a blush in Hibiscus Bloom and a bronzer in Malibu Soleil. The highlighter pans are 0.18 oz and the blush and bronzer pans are 0.085 oz. Only Beach Nectar, Hibiscus Bloom and Malibu Soleil are limited edition. Rose Gold Highlighter is ppart of their purmanent highlighter collection. You can purchase the palette on the Becca website, Sephora or Beautylish.com for $46.

Honest thoughts, it’s a nice palette. Is it special? Definitely not. Like everything else Becca does, this palette was heavily marketed on social media. The hype was built up by both Chrissy herself and other beauty influencers. Being a makeup addict myself, I had to get the palette to try, but I am not really impressed.

The Beach Nectar highlighter is nice but doesn’t really work on my light skin tone when I am not tanned. I do get darker in the summer and would definately use this illuminator however, the other products in the palette don’t really work for me. For one, I already have the Rose Gold highlighter. I think it’s kind of pointless to include a product that is already part of the permanent collection in new, limited edition palettes. Most people who love Becca would already own this highlighing powder and those people who dont have it, it’s probably because the highlighter is too dark for them to use. Secondly, I am not a huge fan of Becca blushes. In my opinion, they are way too pigmented and, yes that could be a bad thing. The only blushes I like from Becca are those that came in the split pans. I find that the formula they used for those blushes has less pigment and I don’t end up looking like a clown. The formula used for the Hibiscus Bloom is the same as they ise for their regular blushes and I ended up returning all of them because I just couldn’tget them to work for me. The bronzer in this palette is also nice but the pan size it’s in is tiny. Getting a normal sized bronzing brush into the prodct is very hard without getting some of the surrounding highlighters on the brush. It would have been much better if the bronzer came in the bigger pan size and the Rose Gold highlighter in the smaller.

Overall, I give this product a 2.5 out of 5. I will definitely be returning it and hopefully Becca releases Beach Nectar in a single pan. Remember, this is just my opinion. I do like how the palette works and there is definitely nothing wrong with the quality of the palette, it just didn’t work out for me. 🙁

Xo,
Sasha
