I picked up the new Nordstrom Exclusive Becca Afterglow Sunset Face Palette ($44) which I really didn’t need but still really wanted. I’m horrible because I have many of these blushes and highlighters in a full-size already but I wanted travel palette that held them all as this has some of my favorite shades. That’s my excuse for purchasing it and I’m sticking to it 🙂
The palette is a gorgeous rose gold metallic compact that’s elegant yet lightweight with a mirror inside. You get two blushes, two highlighters, and one bronzer. At 0.21 oz devided by four you get about 0.525 oz per shade. I really struggled with the price a little tiny bit as Shimmering Skin Perfectors are 0.25 oz each and $38 and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush are 0.2 oz and originally $34 in price (they are actually on sale currently for $17 and some folks have even found them cheaper at Marshalls, TJ Maxx). I was trying to wrap my head around the fact that a single blush or highlighter has more product and is priced cheaper. I mean, sure, there’s variety in this palette and I love that! Having five different shades in one palette is brilliant! But I’d have appreciate the price being a little lower you know?
All that being said I will say I did love this little palette. I’m not a highlighter girl by any means but Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter is where I say a big yes. I really love this formula! It’s has a velvety texture that blends perfectly on my face without being too frosty or adhering to drier areas. I love mixing it with my blush to create a perfect shimmering finish. This set includes the shades Crystal Gold and Champagne Pop.
Becca Luminous Blush is another of my favorite products. This includes the bright shade Snapdragon! This is pigmented with a subtle radiant finish that blends beautifully on my cheeks. You also get a Mineral Blush in Flowerchild which has a light, silky formula that blends easily on cheeks. I love combining both shades with a hint of Champagne Pop to create a pretty radiant glow on my cheeks. I’m wearing Snapdragon and Champagne Pop in my look below!
You also get Sunlit Bronzer in Capri Coast which is a very light, shimmering bronzer. You know me, I’m not a bronzer girl by any means but this is so light and subtle it created a little bit of warmth on my face but nothing muddy or orange! The formula was very lightweight and silky.
All in all, this is a little pricey. I don’t really think you need to purchase it unless you have money to splurge. I actually should not have purchased it myself since I have three of the five shades but I travel so often I don’t want to lug around individual pans. That might be one reason to purchase it for yourself! The other reason would be if you never tried Becca before or don’t have these shades it’s a nice starter palette!
Becca Afterglow Sunset Face Palette is available now exclusively at Nordstrom.
Where to buy
Becca Afterglow Sunset Face Palette is a new Nordstrom exclusive palette that contains 2 highlighters, 1 bronzer, and 2 blushes. The palette is $44 and contains a total of 0.21 oz making it a bit expensive for what you get. This is not a must have for fan’s of the brand that have these shades already! It might tempt some who want a travel friendly version of full-size favs but the price might make you reconsider. It is a nice way for new users to experience a variety of Becca’s blushes, highlighters, and bronzers in one go! The formula was excellent overall, with excellent packaging. I just felt the price was a bit much for the amount you get.
- Very nice selection of shades and variety of different powders (blush, bronzer, highlighter) in a travel friendly palette.
- Excellent formula that’s easy to apply and blend.
- Gorgeous luminous looks are easy to create with this palette!
- Small amount of product for the price!
- Not a must for those that already have these shades in a full-size.
Those who haven’t tried a lot of Becca might like the Afterglow Sunset Face Palette however, the price is a bit high for what you get!
