BECCA Cosmetics AFTERGLOW Palette: Photos & Review!

Hey Everyone! Thank you for tuning in as always! 🙂
Today’s post features a new palette from Becca Cosmetics!IMG_2617Introducing the Afterglow palette from Becca Cosmetics,
now available to purchase from your nearby Ulta! (in store or online) IMG_2619TA-DA! Isn’t it just beautiful? This may just be Becca’s 1st ever all cheek palette and I’m in love! This palette includes 3 of their highlighters and 2 of their best selling blushes. Highlighters (aka Shimmering Skin Perfectors)  included are: MOONSTONE, ROSE GOLD, and TOPAZ. Mineral blushes included are WILD HONEY and FLOWERCHILD.IMG_2620From left to right: Moonstone, Rose Gold, Topaz, Wild Honey & FlowerchildIMG_2625So now that we’ve covered the basics, let’s get to the juicy details of this palette. I think this is a great way to explore Becca’s cheek products if you don’t own or have yet to try their fabulous cheek products. Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfectors (highlighters) retail for $38 for .28 oz. and the Mineral Blushes retail for $32 for .20 oz— this is a great value because you get the chance to try 5 products for only $39.50, in my opinion, totally winning! IMG_2613I really love how slim and compact this palette is–
it easily fits into my makeup bag, not bulky and very travel friendly.

As for skin tones, I think these blushes will be stunning on the lightest to the darkest of skin tones, however, as for the Shimmering Skin Perfectors, Moonstone is my ultimate fave… yes, it even tops Champagne Pop. I’m pretty fair skinned, and Moonstone is my go to along with The Balm- Mary Lou Manizer. So I find Moonstone to work with all skin tones, it’s the perfect shade for a stunning glow. As for Rose Gold and Topaz, I find that these 2 work better as highlighters on medium to darker skin tones. However, that hasn’t stopped me from using this palette recently. I love using the Shimmering Skin Perfectors as eye shadows on my lid for some extra PIZAZZZ. They add oomph and define your eyes perfectly — in love.

*Overall, I think this palette is very much worth the price tag. You get the chance to try out 5 of Becca’s cheek products at such an incredible value. It’s definitely affordable in my opinion, and I always like to remind you all that a little goes a long way when using these products. These cheek products are incredibly pigmented and long-wearing. This palette also makes for a very nice gift for a make-up artist, make-lover, make-up enthusiast.. you get the point, right? If you get the chance, go to your local Ulta and try out this palette for yourself.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. As always, thank you so much for tuning in and reading– love you all. xoxoxo
