If you are a self proclaimed makeup tutorial junkie ( like I am), chances are you know the name Jaclyn Hill. Last year she formulated a highlight shade with Becca called Champagne Pop, which is a beautiful pinky white gold. In addition to being strikingly beautiful, it’s also pretty pricy at 37 dollars, so I set about finding a less expensive alternative. I found one. So let’s talk about this $3 alternative to Champagne Pop.
Side By Side
On the left is elf baked eyeshadow in Enchanted. On the right is Champagne Pop. Looking at them, you cam see that Enchanted leans more peach, whereas Champagne Pop is more gold. In person, these differences are less noticeable
On the left, Enchanted. On the right, Champagne Pop.
The difference in formula is huge. Champagne Pop is smooth and easy to build color with, where Enchanted feels like touching Styrofoam and is not very pigmented. In order to make the color look as it does above, I had to wet my brush. Champagne Pop was applied dry: straight from the pan. Champagne Pop is a little more white gold, and Enchanted leans a little more peach.
However, when applied, the colored on the cheekbones give nearly the exact same effect. This photo shows Champagne Pop on my left cheekbone.
And on my right, is Enchanted, applied with a wet brush. The only discernable difference when applied, is that Champagne pop is much more sparkly, where Enchanted has a more glowy effect.
All in all, I would say that if you’re not down to spend a small fortune on a highlight (although it is beautiful), this alternative is a pretty good one!
