Hello there everyone!
As you recently know about two weeks ago I had the opportunity to purchase the whole champagne collection from Jaclyn Hill when it was released in store at Sephora. If you haven’t read that post you can catch up right below:
I was super thrilled to get my hands on this collection because it’s Jaclyn Hill and I LOVE her work + products. I’m sure you all heard the news she recently gave about this palette that it was being pulled from the shelves, from online from anywhere it was selling because the palettes were not made consistent when BECCA tried a new lab & made them there. (For time purposes) Some palettes were great when others were not great at all. I was shocked that it was in stores on the “in store release date” because it was pulled from BECCA all together WAY before that, and at this point I knew I had to try my luck & buy it.
These swatches are swatches I did using my hand at work with paper so I can show you guys how it looks in the “I just purchased this” moment. At this point I was thrilled because it was highly pigmented at this moment for the first & LAST time. Then my luck ran out when I went home to give this product a thorough test! I attempted to apply these swatches to my lids with a brush over a period of a week. I used my IT Cosmetics brushes + my Artis brushes, and they all gave me the same outcome. For a whole week I used this palette and it seemed like NOTHING was even on my lids. The formula did not pick up AT ALL with any of these brushes, and the formula was VERY CHALKY. The only way they applied decently was when I used my finger to put it on, but it was still very spotty. I knew I had to return this because the product wasn’t working out, and I could use that $40 elsewhere. So I woke up early today took my butt to Sephora before work, and RETURNED IT! (Honestly didn’t want to return it because it’s something we’re never going to have again, but it needed to be done)
I’m OK with the fact that I had to return this product because it just wasn’t working out. I’m not mad AT ALL at Jaclyn Hill what so ever (She’s my girl!). In fact I’m not mad at anyone not even BECCA. It happens, especially when you go out of your comfort zone to try a new lab. So everyone who is throwing shade at Jaclyn or BECCA you all need to just CHILL OUT because there’s no reason to hate!! It wasn’t their faults! If you got a great eye palette good for you I am nothing but jealous of you right now because as bad as I wanted mine to be good, and work it just wasn’t. (Just wanted to throw that in there LOL)
Since this product is technically no longer on the physical Sephora “market” I did find it on Amazon if anyone wants to be daring enough to give it a go! It is Limited Edition so getting your hands on this is VERY HARD!
Did you guys buy this palette? What is your thoughts/outcome?!
