The highlighter of dreams - BECCA Champagne Pop.

If you remember my post about the MAC highlighter in soft & gentle a few months ago, you might remember me saying that I will forever use this one and never will need another one.. well.. I take this statement back. I still believe that it is a stunning highlighter, but I just found one that I love even more. And since then I realised a few things about soft & gentle which I never realised before. 



On Black Friday last year I was browsing cult beauty and saw the hyped BECCA highlighter in champagne pop.. and I just had to try it. There are not a lot of occasions where you get 20% off BECCA products. When it arrived it was love at first sight. And suddenly I fell out of love with my soft & gentle. So I passed it on to my sister. Haha, as I said it is still a beautiful product but champagne pop is so much more me. It is more of like a gold than a pinky shade. This suits my skin colour so much more. And the biggest difference I have realised is the texture. BECCA is more an intense shimmer, much finer. MAC has actual big glitter pigments to it. I heard that the Mary-Lou Manizer by The Balm is a good dupe for the MAC one and is without the big particles. So maybe I will check this one out next. 

In terms of intensity, I feel like both highlighters are on the same level. Both are really intense. So if you are not into it, it's maybe not a highlighter for you. I tried some Dior highlighter the other day which I find much more subtle, so maybe give these a try. 

If you want to see me wearing the highlighter just visit my Instagram (@lisa.autumn). This is the only highlighter I wear these days.

Did you try any BECCA highlighter? Which other shade should I order next?

  6. I've only recently finally got myself to a counter to swatch this in Person as there is no Becca stand near where I live. It's on my wishlist now, I'm currently trying to finish up Mary Loumanizer from the Balm and plan to buy this as a reward when I finally finish it!

  7. I have champagne pop in three different variations haha. The Jaclyn Hill Palette, the normal pan and one of the split pans. I'd have to bathe in it to go through all of it haha.

  8. Sounds like a fab recommendation and I can't wait to give it a try! I usually go for the Chantecaille highlighter which is also a really good one!

  9. I really never have understood the hype around soft and gentle. I mean it is nice but it feel very grainy! Especially compared to Becca! have you ever tried Maryloumanizer? That is half the price of this but very high quality like this!

  22. I remember trying to stay away from Champagne Pop for a really long time, but the minute I got my hands on one - damn, it is so beautiful! Even when I have my photos taken for boring stuff passport or visas, I apply it and my skin looks 100 times better lol.

  27. I don't have champagne pop but I have the Moonstone highlighter by Becca and I absolutely love it. I think like you said texture is a huge part of why I love it so much, it's so finely milled and very different to all the other highlighters I own!
