Hailed as a self-confessed fan of Becca highlighters, the stunning Chrissy Teigen joined forces with Becca Cosmetics to celebrate its latest makeup launch of the limited edition Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette ($46 / 0.53 oz – 15 g). Introducing an exciting Summery range housed in a sleek, travel-friendly rose gold compact, the poetic junction brings forth three exclusive colors as well as a repeat from the permanent line (Rose Gold). Teigen, who was involved in every step of the production process, chose to offer a versatile face palette that features her favorite existing highlighting shade from Becca, Rose Gold, and three new cheek colors sure to please any lover of warmer and shimmery complexion products.
Endowed with warm sultry shades apropos for the season, the beautiful palette accurately encapsulates the essence of what Becca represents as a complexion authority: natural, authentic beauty. Created with Becca’s iconic and unique formula that blends pigments and liquids for a super fine, creamy feel, all shades have excellent pigment, a smooth finish and blend seamlessly on the skin. Coverage ranges from medium to fully opaque and are easily controlled for a sheer wash of color or layered for a high-impact, standout pop. Aside from the overall colors and portability factor, what I truly love about this palette is how effortlessly all four shades coordinate with each other to provide one cohesive and complimenting look.
A look at the color selection and descriptions as I see them
Rose Gold – is a warm, medium rose with reddish/peach undertones and golden shimmer and has a metallic sheen finish
Hibiscus Bloom – is a warm, medium pink with fine golden pearl and a has a satin finish
Malibu Soleil – is a warm, medium to dark brown with golden undertones and has a satin finish
Beach Nectar – is a warm, medium champagne peach and has a golden metallic finish
Swatched on the arm
Bottom line, this is a solid performer and I am absolutely head-over-heels for it. I have owned all-in-one palettes previously but none as well executed as the Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette. The colors coordinate beautifully together for the complexion as well as the eyes. In itself the palette is a great size for travels or on-the-go application as it is sturdy, sleek and comes equipped with a nicely larger square mirror. The overall colors are quite perfect and the shimmer ratio is balanced out just enough to where it gives the face a glow without that frost factor. The general quality is beyond amazing, it has a pigmented and smooth formula with great wear time that lasts all day and on my skin did not emphasize any pores or texture. For the price, I think this is a must-have buy especially if you missed out on last year’s Jaclyn Hill collaboration or are just a fan of all things glow. All-in-all, I highly recommend this, such a fan.
