After hearing every single makeup junkie rave about this palette, I finally got my hands on it! When I heard that the infamous Chrissy Teigen teamed up with BECCA, I was excited. If you follow Chrissy, then you already know that this fashionista’s makeup is always on point…especially her cheeks! And the fact that she collaborated to create a palette that accentuates this feature for everyone is marvellous.
What’s in the palette: This palette includes two highlighters (Rose Gold & Beach Nectar), a blush (Hibiscus Bloom) and a bronzer (Malibu Soleil). It also comes with a built-in mirror and the packaging of this palette is ultra cute! The Rose Gold highlighter is obviously in a rose gold tone. The Beach Nectar highlighter is more of a light pink/peach highlighter. Hibiscus Bloom is a gorgeous satiny pink/gold. Malibu Soleil is your usual bronzer with a hint of shimmer.

The Good: OMG. The highlighters are beautiful on pretty much any skin tone! Both the highlighters are different from one another and can be worn during the day or night! I love how pigmented and buildable the blush/bronzer are. One of the main reasons why I love this palette is because of its versatility. Not only can you use this for you cheeks, you can also use this on your eyes. I used this palette and only this palette for one week straight and the results were great! Also, the formula of all these shades are incredibly smooth! They all glide on so well on to your skin and you can layer them without looking cakey. I found that all these shades look super natural on my skin tone and after having this on all day, the shades didn’t move or look overdone (score).
The Bad: As much as I love this palette, I can’t seem to understand the sizes of the blush and bronzer included in this palette. They’re significantly smaller in size compared to the highlighters. Although, I guess that because this is a “glow” palette, the highlighters are going to be the highlight of this palette (LOLz) but I would love if the blush and bronzer were the same size because my understanding is that I would use more of the blush and bronzer than the highlighter. But, that’s literally the only negative thing I found.
Final Verdict: If you love highlighters, Chrissy Teigen or makeup in general, then this palette needs to be yours! Not only is this pigmented to the max, it gives you the perfect glow without looking like you spent hours doing your makeup. But you better get it fast because this baby is a limited edition release!
