Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Palette Unboxing & Swatches

I will not hesitate to admit that I am a stress shopper, but I will reluctantly admit that I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to supplies, most notably office supplies and beauty supplies. In my time of intense stress a few weeks ago, Mina mentioned that she had an extra unused Jaclyn Hill palette. At first I wasn't sure what it was, but then she mentioned that it included the Champagne Pop highlighter, I was intrigued. I had heard so many bloggers and vloggers rave about the shade of highlighter, but I was a bit put back by the price ($38 for a single shade). The palette, with five shades for $52 total, is much more economical (lol, right?). It also happens to be impossible to find anywhere; I can't even find it on anymore. It turned into a win-win situation: I took the palette off her hands, saving her the return trip, and I now own a Champagne Pop palette, which I never in one million years would have found in stores.

I have yet to try it out, but you can see the shades in the pan and in the swatches. As I am still in Sacramento, I do not have all of my makeup brushes with me, and even if I did, they are long past due an upgrade. I have a basic set from e.l.f. but they're quite old and there's no specific brush for blush and highlighter. I considered getting the e.l.f. professional set, but since they're more or less the same price as the highly acclaimed Real Techniques brushes, I'm leaning more towards that core collection instead. I'm still a good bronzer and foundation short of a full makeup set; I don't know why I'm buying all this makeup when I rarely wear anything but eyeliner on a daily basis. Hopefully once I have the brushes I'll be more inclined to wake up an extra ten minutes earlier every day to pop on some highlighter. ◊
