BECCA HAS TWO NEW HIGHLIGHT SHADES AND NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT

Bonjour!

So I recently saw that Becca has TWO new highlight shades out and I couldn’t believe I hadn’t heard of them yet. I’ve literally got about 75 open tabs on my computer as I write this. For the holidays, they’ve released two limited-edition shades: ‘Vanilla Quartz’– a buttery light gold infused with pink pearl, and ‘Golden Mint’– a light green that shifts to a wearable gold. They also re-released ‘Rose Quartz’ for a limited time.

Why is no one talking about this?? I feel like everyone and their mother took to social media to promote the Becca x Chrissy Teigen aka Becca x Jaclyn Hill ripoff palette (there, I said it), but where is the hype on this??? Where are the bloggers and Youtubers going wild jumping out of cars???

It’s funny- these look pretty similar but they’re quite far away. It was hard to find clolse up swatches! You can buy the full size of ‘Vanilla Quartz’ from Sephora or Becca Cosmetics for $46CAD. They also came out with mini sized highlighters (a Sephora exclusive) and Vanilla Quartz is included. They retail for $19CAD for  and other shades available are ‘Opal’, ‘Moonstone’ and ‘Rose Gold’.

As for ‘Golden Mint’, that is a Becca Cosmetics online exclusive and is available in the full size only. They released it to the Sephora app for one day only a few days ago, but so far it isn’t available there- yet.

What do you guys think? I think they look nice. Possibly ‘Vanilla Quartz’ is a little too frosty but I’m tempted to order it anyway because I’m losing my tan and it might be a good fit. I’d have to swatch ‘Golden Mint’ in person to see if it actually looks gold or not.

 

Are either of these on your holiday wish list???

  • Vanilla Quartz is new to me, but they actually did a campaign for the Golden Mint a few months back on Instagram. Followers got to vote on either that or Smoky Quartz for their next release. The latter won, but they eventually released the Golden Mint about a month or so later.

    • Yes I saw that on their insta!! But other than that no other influencers have spoken about it from what I’ve seen!

  • I will probably consider this as oppose to their liquid highlighter I’m not a fan like everyone else. The colors in this collection is pretty.

    • Yea I don’t really like liquid highlighter either- I find it is so easy to ruin your makeup! xo J

  • Vanilla Frost looks really pretty. I find it hard to do golden highlights with my skin tone since I’m ghostly pale most of the time so I prefer frostier highlights!

    • Sorry Vanilla Quartz*

    • Ohh that’s fair. I know, I have this Nars highlight I love (Albatross), but it’s so yellow toned if I’m really pale in the winter it’s too much!

      • Oh no, yeah definitely a summer highlight for when you’re naturally tanned!
