I was so proud of myself for resisting the Becca x Jacklyn Hill collaboration, telling myself I had more than enough highlighters. Then I saw a tweet from Space NK saying the Champagne Collection Face Palette was back in stock (limited stock!), and suddenly I was running down to the Winchester Space NK (the best new shop in Winchester!).
There it was on the till all ready for me to part with £48, which I promptly did! To be fair, it is the best value of the whole range so far as you get two full size highlighters and three fairly large blushers. The highlighters on their own are £32 and the highlighter blush duos are also £32, so £48 really is good value!!
The palette is beautifully packaged, all creamy white and golden bubbles..sigh. Inside is a huge mirror (thank you!) which makes this so easy to use and take with you as your main on the go mirror. It is large but not too big for travel or for your (my) day to day makeup bag.
So inside there are two highlighters, the very famous Champagne Pop and the new(ish) Prosecco Pop, my top two drinks of choice too!!
Champagne Pop has already been reviewed to death – warm peachy pink glow, super intense, liquid metal like. Prosecco Pop is more of a intense gold and a slightly cooler tone, still gorgeous. If I had to choose it would be Champagne Pop for my skin tone, as it gives me a lovely glow that actually isn’t too crazy! Both are very finely milled and easy to apply and last really well.
The blushers are also stunning. There are three Rose Spritz, Amaretto and Pamplemousse. Rose Spritz is the most shimmery of the three – a soft pink that looks more subtle when applied than what you expect. Amaretto is a lovely matte pink brown, very flattering and perfect for everyday. My favourite is Pamplemousse, it looks like quite a intense a hot pink that shouldn’t work, but on my skin it is a lovely flush of pink that gives me that healthy, post exercise glow!
I am super impressed with this palette, even more so as every shade suits my skin which I wasn’t expecting. Below I am wearing Champagne Pop and Pamplemousse.

I have taken this with me on holiday as my only blush/highlighter and never felt like I should have brought something else.
If you can get hold of this do, it is worth it!
