Okay, so it seems every man and his dog is talking about this highlighter at the moment. Yet again, I’ve been swept up in the hype. I first heard about this product from Instagram and then my little sister (who is sixteen and completely obsessed with Youbtube makeup tutorials) told me that I needed the Becca ‘Champagne Pop’ highlighter as it’s been created by Youtube beauty guru Jaclyn Hill. I’ve watched a few of Jaclyn’s videos in the past and really enjoy them but it wasn’t necessarily her endorsement that made me want this product – I’m just a little bit obsessed with highlighters and this one looked way too pretty to ignore.
Unlike most highlighters I own which are silver or gold toned, Champagne Pop is very much a pinky peach highlighter and quite unique as it has multiple shades running through it. I’ve not seen any other highlighters quite like it before which obviously justifies yet another unnecessary beauty purchase. It’s also insanely pigmented – trust me when I say you only need the lightest dab for the product to be transferred from the pan onto the brush you’re using. I really like this about it as it makes it effortless to apply and I know it’s going to last me a long time. It’s also so finely milled – there are no chunky glitter particles in it and instead it had the most beautiful metallic finish which really does make cheekbones ‘pop’ as the name would suggest. It blends like a dream too and is really buttery soft to the touch.
My only concern about this product is that because it’s SO buttery, I feel it could crumble at any moment so I do worry about taking it out and about with me in my handbag. I did own the Becca Opal highlighter and that completely crumbled and fell from the pan whilst I was using it (no idea what caused that as I didn’t drop it) and I have heard reports that people have had the same thing happen to them with Champagne Pop too. Definitely not ideal!!
