Becca Apres Ski Glow Face Palette ($54) is a new, limited edition Holiday 2017 highlighter and blush palette that was placed on my instant buy list as soon as I saw it. Far be it for me to rave highlighting anything but Becca’s palettes have been really good to me! I loved the Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Palette and I had great success with the Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette. So, it seemed like a no brainer to pick up the Apres Ski Glow Face Palette.

Here’s my thoughts, review, and swatches.

Like past palettes the Becca Apres Ski Glow Face Palette is presented in a beautiful metallic blue compact with a huge mirror inside. It’s really a luxe, beautiful palette perfect for Holiday gifting. The inspiration behind the palette is give you that fresh from the outdoor glow or “snow bunny” look and it succeeds beautifully at doing so.

The thing I like most about the palette is the fact that the round up of shades run both cool and warm and should suit a variety of skin tones. One of the most appealing items for most people will be the inclusion of the new Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Icicle which is a cool white that reflects icy blue. It’s actually the one shade I didn’t like as I don’t think I look good in shades like this but it will pop on a darker skin tone or even a lighter one. I played with quite a few over the last few days and it gives this snowy look to cheeks that literally looks like you stepped in from a winter storm. Or were kissed in one!

There’s also a new Mineral Blush in this set (one of the reasons I wanted it) called Winter Berry but Winter Berry is one of those standard Becca shades that tends to look a lot like other shades they have available. None the less it’s still a gorgeous shade and it is what I am wearing in this post along with a dusting of Opal which gives me a golden pink finish.

Also included in the palette are permanent Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Rose Quartz and Opal as well as Sunlit Bronzer in Bronzed Bondi and Luminous Blush in Blushed Cooper. Each pot is 0.09 oz in size. All the formulas have a soft, velvety texture that blend easily with a long, strong wear that doesn’t fade for several hours.

I’m always every so slightly wary of palettes as sometimes the formula isn’t quite as good as the full-size products but that hasn’t proven an issue with any of the palettes I own from Becca. Their small sizes that appear in palettes are just as good as their full-size item. The quality remains the same across the board.

Overall, I really enjoyed the Becca Apres Ski Glow Face Palette. It gives me a nice round up of shades that can either get me a warmer or cooler glowing look on my cheeks or face. Truly, if you’re looking for that soft snow bunny glow this palette will get it for you.

Muse Approved.

Get this one! You won’t regret the purchase!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Wow! I’m surprised by the Muse’s stamp of approval. I’ve tried but I have given up on highlighters and contouring. Perhaps my makeup skills are lacking, but I think it’s more that I’m not interested.

    • Isabella Muse

      I am not either. Contouring, highlighting, it goes RIGHT over my head! However, I have become terribly addicted to Becca’s palettes. This one, Champagne Pop, and Chrissy’s palettes are so fab ;-D I really like the pretty glow they give my skin! But that’s about the extent of my highlighting lol!

  • Christina D.

    I’ve only tried Becca’s eye shadow palettes, the Ombre and the Ombre Rouge, and I disliked both; they were muddy on me although I recall that you liked them. I think Becca is better known for their face products.

    BTW I hauled the new Viseart Grande Pro palette.

    • Isabella Muse

      I did! they were good to me. You should try this! You never know you might love πŸ˜€ Haha I KNEW you’d get it. I didn’t get it! Too much! I skipped πŸ˜€

      Excellent. Costly, but excellent. By pan, more than reasonable. F’sure, you’re going to be able to use the hell out of it. Idk. Got 4 already, and am under extreme financial hardship, so won’t. The Visearts are go good, they blend themselves. And they stay put. People invest in clothing or shoes, often big bucks for one occasion. This is an investment that will def pay off. Congratulations.

    Yeah it was a lot, even for me. But I’m opting for quality over quantity. For all the smaller orders I place for mid-range staff that’s OK, I’ve put it all into one order of high-quality product that I really enjoy. So I’ll reign in the spending on other stuff…at least that’s what I’m telling myself. Besides, if you do the math, it’s less than $6/shadow and trust me, Viseart is worth it.

    • Isabella Muse

      Girl, I don’t judge! You know me πŸ˜€ Enjoy it, as long as you love it that’s all that matters. I was tempted but I backed out last minute. Seemed a little too much to splurge. I really want to destash and just concentrate on quality as well but it is hard when I have to refer back to certain items because of the blog :-/ If it was up to me I could probably rid myself 75% of the makeup I own!

      I bought their Golden Hour palette (first Viseart palette purchase for me), but I haven’t had the chance to play with it yet. I’m excited though because I’ve never heard anyone say anything bad about their shadows (other than they wish they could buy more if it wasn’t so cost prohibitive, but I still feel safer dropping money on Viseart versus Natasha Denona which seems to get mixed reviews, even though I was drooling over the Lila palette).

    The one thing that Becca does really well is blushes/highlighters. I think you always get really good value from their palettes, if the shades are right for you. These would look lovely on your complexion Muse, across all seasons.
