A Summer Glow|Becca X Chrissy Review

At this point and time I’m sure all of you have heard about or bought the “Becca X Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette”. There was buzz around this product before its release as expected, since one of social media’s biggest stars was a part of this collaboration. This palette comes with 1 blush shade, 2 highlighters, and 1 bronzer. Let’s start with packaging. I am a sucker for packaging and this product got me good. It’s a beautiful metal quad with a marble front and a massive mirror inside. The colours of the packaging consist of mostly pinks, peach, and rose gold, which gives off a very light and summery vibe. Becca really nailed the packaging!

Opening up the palette you will see your product. Let’s begin with the bronzer. It is a beautiful product, perfect for a warm summer bronzy look but it’s more for light to medium skin tone. It is not dark enough for deeper skin tones. I guess if they did want to market it for more skin tones they could’ve added 2 bronzer shades instead of just 1. There are flex of shimmer in the bronzer, which personally I am not fan of. I do prefer matte bronzers. The bronzer is the product I use the least in this palette. The blusher is amazing; it also contains flex of shimmer which I do not mind. The blush is a beautiful rosy shade which will compliment a lot of different skin tones. It is well pigmented which is great!

I appreciate that the palette comes with 2 highlighter shades, which will compliment more skin tones. One thing to note is that these highlighters in the palette are less pigmented than the regular Becca powder highlighters.  This isn’t a terrible thing; I found that these highlighters in the palette are more so of an everyday effortless summer glow and not blinding where you need sunglasses. I usually layer them on top of one another which give a great finish. On their own they give off more of a medium glow.

The quality of all the powders, I find, are great. They are not chalky and application is smooth. The outcome is long lasting, and if you are a fan of warmer shades and a non-blinding everyday glow, you will love this palette. This palette is well priced as well since you do get 2 highlighters, 1 blush and 1 bronzer. I do find myself reaching for this face palette on the daily since it has everything I need in it and is perfect for an everyday effortless look.
