BECCA Eye Lights Palette + Champagne Pop Glow on the Go Kit Review and Swatches

 I am so ready for the luminous, sparkly, glowy look this holiday season and that is why I had to pick up these shimmering holiday sets from Becca Cosmetics. They are also the first ever Becca product I own! I always wanted to try their most coveted highlighters but somehow I was always more distracted with my love for YSL, Chanel and Givenchy for cosmetics. So, I had been waiting for a palette that features a collection of Becca highters and with these two products I have pretty much tasted everything from Becca in terms of highlghters for warmer complexions. I also wanted to get the holiday blush palette from Après Ski Glow Collection but I couldn't find it at Sephora.

So for today I am sharing these beautiful products from Becca Cosmetics with swatches and why they are my favorite this holiday season. Catch up on my holiday favorites here.

CHAMPAGNE POP - GLOW ON THE GO KIT
This set feature two travel sized Champagne Pop highlighters in pressed powder and in liquid form. I had never tried Champagne Pop before, so this was a great way to add it to my collection. Its a lovely shade that is a cult favorite and had won over millions - including me. There isn't a single highlighter in my collection that I have hit pan on so even these travel sizes will last me years!
And they are pretty good sizes. The pressed powder is 2.4gm which is the size of the mini Becca Highlighters, which retail for C$23 and the liquid highlighter is only 5ml. So at a price of C$24 for this kit, I got a pretty good deal. I am not much of a liquid highlighter person, so this is a great way to experiment.
Like eveyone else, I am in love with Champagne Pop, a little goes a long way and it never looks bad. It gives a radiant glow, that can be quickly intensified to a more full on-in-your face highlight. Love it.

BECCA EYE LIGHTS PALETTE
This is the holiday eye shadow palette from Becca Cosmetics for this year and it includes five of the best selling Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlghter shades in an "eye version", which is Pearl, Rose Quartz, Moonstone, Opal, and Topaz—and two holiday-inspired shades—Toasted Marshmallow and Hot Cocoa. For me its  a collection of their best sellers - I use this on my eyes and face.
I actually like them better on my face than eyes. They are super easy to use because I can never go wrong with neutrals. The pigmentation is a bit sheer for an eye shadow but that also makes it super easy to quickly do an eye look. We usually go for breakfasts during the holidays and after a late night, its hard for me to pull together a look. This palette allows me to swipe a few shimmery shades on my lids, contour the crease with Toasted Marshamallow+ Hot Cocoa and apply Moonstone in the inner lid and under the brown bone and I am good to go.
The packaging is also great. It has a great sized mirror and its slim, so it fits my cosmetic pouch nicely. The satin shades
It makes a great palette for me because it fits my busy life style. It might not be the perfect palette for holidays, but since I got to try almost all the highlighters from Becca in one palette, I am not going to complain. Also, this palette is only C$35 and on sale since launch, so its a very good price point to get a collection of Becca Highlighters.
