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