Becca Afterglow Palette

Hi everyone! I thought I'd do a little review today on a palette that I got for Christmas which I'm loving and that is the Becca Afterglow palette. I only got introduced to this brand at Christmas, I'd heard a lot about them and how people were loving them so I really wanted to try some products, this was bought from Cult Beauty along with one of their primers and I really love it because the products inside are generally really different from things I'd typically use, aside from one of the highlighters and I'm enjoying it a lot!


In this palette you get three highlighters and two blushers for £34 I believe, and I think when you are new to a brand like me sometimes it is better to invest in these palettes to find out what you like, the full size highlighters alone are £30 so they definitely aren't cheap so I think when you don't know what you love yet it is better to buy these sorts of products. 


I absolutely love the packaging it's so pretty, only thing is though it is the type that will keep every finger print that lands on it, I find that so annoying because it's actually so gorgeous when it's brand new and the second you pick it up there is finger prints all over it. One thing I will say about this palette is that it is so much smaller in person and the pans themselves are very small. It's a bonus because it's perfect for travelling because you get a mixture of products in one slimline palette however I was surprised when I received it because of it's size. 


The three highlighters you get from left to right are Moonstone, Rose Gold and Topaz. The thing that I have heard the most about Becca is how much people rave over their highlighters so I was so excited to try them out! Moonstone would be something that I would flock to straight away so that is definitely my favourite from the palette followed by Rose Gold then Topaz. The quality of them all is absolutely amazing they are so pigmented and shimmery.


Left to right: Moonstone, Rose Gold, Topaz

The only one I'm a bit iffy about is Topaz which is a golden copper bronze, purely because at the minute it doesn't suit my skin tone, however when I'm tanned I think I could get away with it when I'm wanting that really bronzey look. It would make an amazing eye shadow however because it's so pigmented and shimmery that I think it would look so gorgeous on the centre of the lid. Moonstone is a pale gold shade which I absolutely love, I'm currently the palest I will most likely be all year in January so this is perfect for me, Rose Gold which is a golden rosy pink I really love, this is something I would never normally choose for a highlighter but I actually really like it, again I also think this would look good as an eye shadow and maybe dusted a tiny bit or the top of your blush. 


You then have your two mineral blushes which are Wild Honey and Flowerchild. I just want to point out that these are so creamy, the quality really is amazing! 


Wild Honey, Flowerchild

Wild Honey (peachy nude) is so different from anything I would ever choose normally, I'm actually quite boring with blush choice all I have is muted pinks and corals really, so again in the summer when I'm tanned and what to look very bronzed I think this would be amazing! Flowerchild is a peach pink with gold flecks and this is definitely more to what I would normally go for, it looks very different in the pan than it does when swatched which I think you can tell from the pictures. One thing I will say is that a little of this really does go a long way, the first time I applied it I picked up on my brush the standard amount I would do for any blush and I literally looked a bit like a clown it was so pigmented and bright, so definitely only use a tiny amount of this it's all you will need!

My biggest issue with this palette as I said before is the size of the pans, this is mostly a problem when you are trying to pick up product with your brush because you have to stop it from going in the other pans and then product starts to go everywhere and it turns into a bit of a mess! It's not impossible to use you just have to be careful, even if the pans were more spaced apart that would help but never mind! The quality of the palette really does live up to everything I've heard however, and I think there is something for everyone in it as well because all the shades are so different. Whilst some aren't the most wearable they would look so nice for specific looks and I can't wait to use them all! Let me know in the comments if you've tried any Becca products and what you think!

  2. I have never tried anything from Becca before but I do love the look of this, to try before I buy a full size highlighter.

  11. I haven't tried any of the Becca products but this Afterglow Palette looks and sounds really good. That is often an annoying thing with palettes like this, when the products mix as you are trying to get just one out. But then like you say, it's a good price to say you get to try three highlighters and two blushers and the shades do look gorgeous!

  13. The Moonstone highlight is GORGEOUS, though I doubt I'd ever spend this much on makeup products. Shame about the size of the pans!

  18. At first I was like the palette is huge but then in the picture with the little purse in the background it does look smaller than I expected, but it's still a great price to get to try all those Becca products as it's such a popular high end brand. I can see what you mean about Topaz but Rose Gold is absolutely beautiful! I really like the blusher shades too :)
