I’ve been playing with the Becca Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette ($46) for a few days and a review and swatches seemed like the order of business today because I don’t think I can wait a second longer to tell you about this one. You can get your hands on the Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette tomorrow at Sephora.com but as of now it is showing as out of stock.
As you know Becca and Chrissy Teigen collaborated on a brand new face palette that launched last week on the Sephora App. I was seriously standing by my phone at 3AM in the hopes of snagging it but sadly, I stayed up for no reason as Sephora decided to go live with it a lot later that day. As you know I’m not one to get excited about highlighters but I have the Becca x Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Face Palette and absolutely adore it so, it was kind of a no brainer picking up Chrissy’s palette as I knew I’d love it as well.
This is a limited-edition palette and I have thought about it and do regret not purchasing a backup of Jaclyn’s palette so when it goes live tomorrow I think I’ll be purchasing a back up of Chrissy’s because it truly is a gorgeous selection of shades.
Let’s take a look!
Chrissy’s a beautiful woman and she has gorgeous sunkissed skin and I think her palette was created with that in mind. If you tan easily or you have medium to tan skin these colors will pop on your skin tone. Her palette is all about getting that perfect Summer glow.
The palette comes housed in a gorgeous rose gold metallic box. The palette is also rose gold metallic with a peach marble face plate that has Becca and Chrissy’s name splashed across the top. It’s a heavy and well made palette with a generously sized mirror inside. It’s a lighter compared and a little thinner compared to Jaclyn’s palette but still beautifully made and very much a vanity worthy piece of makeup. If I had to change one thing about the palette it would be the fact they included a clear plastic film that had Becca and Chrissy’s signature on it. I wish they had actually out this on the mirror but it makes sense they didn’t as they probably didn’t want to obstruct your view of the huge mirror. Truly you can see your entire face in this thing!
Inside you’ll find a one of the new Sun Lit Bronzer’s in the shade Malbu Soleil (0.085 oz). This shade is exclusive to Chrissy’s palette and not available in the permanent Becca Sun Lit Bronzer range. It’s a light tan shade with very, very subtle and barely there gold shimmer. This has a smooth, satiny texture that adds a touch of warmth to your complexion. It’s actually a fairly good shade for contouring work on a medium fair skin tone that tans easily like my own. You’ll also find a brand new shade of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush in the color Hibiscus Bloom (0.085 oz). I love the Luminous Blush formula! I’ve reviewed in the past and Muse Approved it because the consistency is so beautiful and the finish adds such a lovely glow to my complexion. I was happy to see a brand new shade in this palette. On Sephora’s site they describe it as a golden pink coral but it’s quite a brighter apricot pink with a subtle golden sheen. Needless, to say the color is gorgeous. I know many of you are probably wondering how it compares to the Rose Spritz shade in Jaclyn’s Palette! I’ll be comparing shades in an upcoming post so you can see the subtle difference between the two shades. I actually wish they had made this shade bigger because I’ll likely hit pan on it face. Next up we have two different Shimmer Skin Perfectors one of which is Rose Gold and the other Beach Nectar (0.18 oz). As you can see the highlighters are the largest pans in the palette and what good reason. Shimmering Skin Perfector has a strong cult following so, makeup lovers are purchasing this because of those highlighters, particularly the shade Beach Nectar which is a brand new shade, exclusive to this palette. Beach Nectar truly is gorgeous and it’s a shade that you can imagine Chrissy using in her daily looks. This is a light peachy apricot with a fine gold sheen! It pairs up perfectly with the blush in this palette and it’s the combination I’m wearing in my photo below. You also get the shade Rose Gold which is a permanent shade. This is a champagne golden beige that looks quite lovely paired up with the Sun Lit Bronzer shade in this palette.
Needless to say all the powders have a soft, silky consistency that blend out smoothly and evenly. I didn’t have issues with the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter adhering to drier areas on my cheeks, they applied very smoothly and looked flawless. I was impressed with how well all the colors worked together. I think sometimes I can get lost in palettes that have a mismatch of shades but Chrissy’s Palette has a selection of shades that work well together. With Summer on the way, this is really a perfect pick up to get a beautiful luminous glow on your face and cheeks!
Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette is an outstanding palette that well worth picking up. I have to admit I’m a little exhausted with makeup releases lately and I don’t get as excited about them as I once did but the Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette is definitely one to get excited about. This is beautifully presented with a gorgeous formula that you’ll be happy to add to your collection. Don’t miss it.
