IT'S BEEN TOO LONG! I am terribly sorry for abandoning my vlog updates! I am trying to better manage my time, and write more often. The latest and greatest is brought to you by my most recent purchase of the new BECCAxChrissy collab palette. Funny--a few days after I received this in the mail, I watched a YouTube video on how Becca is slick and recycles shades. GO FIGURE!
I am happy I bought the palette to swatch and compare. The shades do show up similar to previous ones released.
I forgot to mention my purchase of the individual Sunlit Bronzers also from Becca. I picked up Bronzed Bondi and Ipanema Sun. Might I also add that I have Becca Sunchaser Palette--I KNOW I'M THE WORSTGAHHHHH. Out of all the shades, both "Ipanema Sun" and "Ipanema Sunset" have been my favorite so far. "Ipanema Sun" takes on a beautiful brown undertone that serves as a great contour shade. I layer it on top of another bronzer, and it delivers seamless definition without looking muddy or powdery. "Malibu Soleil" was an extremely seductive name and I HAD TO see how the shade looked on my skin. MEH! It shows up, but I don't think it will do much when I am tan.
Above I swatched the blush and highlighter shades from Sunchaser, Chrissy, and Afterglow palettes. I unfortunately left out "Wild Honey". Even though "Hibiscus Bloom" shows up more vibrant than "Apricot Bloom", I prefer how the apricot shade looks on my skin. As for the highlighter shades, the only new Shimmering Skin Perfector highlight is "Beach Nectar", which takes on a peachy golden tone. It serves as a beautiful blush topper, and I'm sure will show up lovely as a more highlight shade when I'm tan. HOWEVER--I'm on the fence about keeping this palette given all the hype surrounding it, and it being hailed as this new palette when several of the shades are similar to those released in the past. We shall see! I am definitely keeping my "Ipanema Sun" and Sunchaser palette. This might be on the return list! For a full review, check out YouTube video below!
