|Cats like highlighter too!|
Becca's Champagne Pop is a great example of a product which has sold out time and time again largely because of the internet. Created by YouTube makeup artist Jaclyn Hill, it's a lovely pale gold highlighter with pink/peach undertones which look naturally beautiful on most skin tones. And because of the love it's been getting online, it's sold out multiple times at Sephora - to the extent that people have been using a set of hashtags - #findingchampagnepop - to help each other locate Sephora stores which have it in stock.
Naturally, when I was in the States recently, I put Champagne Pop on my must-buy list - mostly because of the internet frenzy - and I was lucky enough to find it at the Seattle Sephora store. And gorgeous it is - it's not too gold, not too white, and just warm enough to be pretty without looking odd on my cool toned skin. It's a subtle highlighter, but one which definitely helps the cheekbones to look more sculpted. It also looks bloody good dabbed onto the cupid's bow (the dent in the top lip) and on the browbone.
Texture wise, it's a very creamy powder, blending with ease thanks to it's buttery texture. I discovered the impressive pigmentation levels the hard way - robot face was the result - and now I use only the lightest dip onto the product with a fluffy brush. The powder is very, very soft and thus very delicate - I dropped mine on the floor a little while ago and now have a compact full of crumbled bits and chunks, so be careful!
At $38, it's expensive, but a little goes a long way, and if you've struggled to find a highlighter that isn't too white, too warm, too gold, or too flat, you may well find this one to strike the perfect balance for you, as it does for me. I'm very pleased with it, and would happily repurchase if I ever ran out. Find it at Sephora.
