Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette Review

Today’s post is my Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette Review*. This product has been spoken about a lot recently and I was tempted to pump my review out very quickly. However, I wanted to wait and really get some decent use from this palette first. It’s been over a month now and I’m definitely ready to share my thoughts.

STORY BEHIND THE COLLECTION AND WHAT IS IT

For those of you who know absolutely everything about Becca Cosmetics, but haven’t heard of Chrissy Teigen, or don’t know a lot about her (like myself), she is a model from America, and John Legend’s other half. Plus, she is incredibly stunning.

The Becca x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette contains two highlighters, a blush and a bronzer. It is supposed to be your warm summer glow, all in the one place. The shades are designed to be complimentary to one another.

MY THOUGHTS

In typical Becca Cosmetics fashion, this palette is pretty awesome as a whole. I didn’t have any problems with any of the shades when it comes to fall out or low pigmentation. I think that the shades work beautifully with one another and that the palette looks beautiful too. Let’s go shade by shade.

Rose Gold is a gorgeous highlighter, that is in fact a part of Becca’s permanent range. It reminds me a lot of Bronzed Amber. I find that it is a true rose gold shade, with something metallic about it and a incredible sheen. However, in terms of pigmentation itself, I’d say that a shade such as Opal has slightly more pigmentation. There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s just something to note. I find that this highlighter is sadly a little too warm for me at this stage because it is winter here in Australia. But, I can imagine rocking this all the time in summer. So excited.

Malibu Soleil is a very warm, satin finish bronzer. I personally find that the shade isn’t a great bronzer for me as I like mine a little deeper, and less orange. I still think it’s a great shade that blends very easily. It’s just not for my complexion.

Hibiscus Bloom is a lovely warm, pink blush. It looks quite daunting in the pan. However, it doesn’t come off too strong. It’s easily buildable so you can definitely get the type of pigmentation that you’d like by using a light hand or doing a few layers. One thing to note is that it looks very shimmery in the pan. But, it doesn’t really translate that and it only has very small flecks.

Beach Nectar is my favourite shade in the palette. It is so shimmery, peachy, corall-y, and an all rounder beautiful blush. I literally can’t stop using it. I love creating a very matte look on my face with a strong highlight, and beach nectar on the tops of my cheeks. It’s so so lovely paired with a light smokey eye too.

CHRISSY TEIGEN VS JACLYN HILL’S PALETTES

Quite a lot of people online have been talking about Chrissy Teigen’s palette, saying that it is very similar and almost identical to the Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. I must admit that when I first saw photos of Chrissy’s palette, I did think that they looked similar in the pan. I also thought they looked very similar when I received it and looked them in the flesh, side by side. However, upon using this product and comparing it against my Jaclyn Hill palette, they are in fact quite different.

From the swatches you can see that the Jaclyn Hill palette has slightly stronger pigmentation, and 5 shades in total, compared to 4 in Chrissy’s. The Jaclyn Hill palette’s highlighters are also more golden, while Chrissy’s are rose gold and peachy.

Which one should you buy? That’s definitely a tough one. I personally would recommend Jaclyn’s as I think the shades are more suitable for my skin, all year round. I’m also in love with the blush shade of Rose Spritz too much to say no.

Do you need both? Another tough one! They are different and they are both beautiful. But, you probably don’t need both.

  • Both palettes look beautiful! A ton of people were saying how similar the two were, so I behaved and held back on the Chrissy palette. I love the highlighters in her palette though! 🙂

  • I have this palette and I love it! I was supposed to get the Jaclyn Hill one but it was always out of stock, so when this was release, I bought it immediately. 😛

  • Oh how I would love to purchase this palette. However I definitely feel it’s more suited to tan skintones, which is great because there aren’t a lot of face palettes designed for darker skin. Me & my pale skin shall just drool over it 😉 x

    • Aww no really! I think you could use a really delicate hand and probably get away with it 🙂 x
