Over the weekend I went to Sephora armed with a giftcard and zero clue as to what I was looking for. After walking around for a bit and covering myself in endless swatches and glitter I came across the Becca Cosmetics display. I’ve swatched the highlighters before, but to be honest I never had much of interest in them. However, after assessing my makeup collection I decided I wanted another powder highlighter to add to it.
So, when I saw the beautiful highlighter / blush duos it was a no brainer to me; two products for the price of one? Yes please! I purchased Champagne Splits, which is a highlighter in the shade Champagne Pop and a blush in the shade Flowerchild.
I swatched these in the store and immediately made my friend swatch them as well. Both the highlighter and the blush are so buttery and smooth it’s unbelievable. Both the highlighter and the blush have the same peach undertones so they complement each other beautifully. The highlighter is stunning, and catches the light in just the right way. I’m the type of person who says more is more when it comes to highlighter, and this one is perfect for that.
The blush is highly pigmented, so it’s important to use a light hand when applying it to avoid looking like a clown. You’d be a cute clown, but still, best to avoid that look all together. I usually get the blush on my brush and then blow a bit off before applying it to my face. You can always add more blush but it’s harder to take it away once it’s already on your face.
You can find some great highlighters and blushes at the drugstore, but I think you’ll be hard pressed to find anything that’s comparable to this product. At $38 it’s certainly more expensive than a drugstore product, but you get what you pay for.
