Am I the only one that's kind of over this now? How many more products could they possibly release? I feel like at this point they are just milking the popularity of Jaclyn Hill to its fullest extent, just another marketing ploy. I apologise if I come across as just underwhelmed, I have been watching a lot of beauty reviews and researching a lot of stuff that has made me a tad cynical about the beauty business and its integrity, but at the end of the day it is still a business and you can''t deny that these, just like every other item in this collection, is going to sell out in minutes, I already have a full post with swatches and all the information you need on the Champagne Splits (post here) so go and read that if you are interested.. This post foucses on the Slimlights and Angled Highlighting Brush.
The Slimlights are new and permanent and from what I understand they are essentially highlighter pens, with a creamy twist up crayon version of the three Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfectors: Pearl (the palest of the three, soft pearly white), Champagne Pop (Jaclyn Hill's shade, hence her name is on the packaging of this one, and this is a champagne fold with peach undertones) and Topaz (my favourite, a golden bronze shade). It is designed for use on targeted, precise areas of the face, such as the inner corner of the eyes, bridge of nose, around the eyebrow area and anywhere else that may be difficult to reach. To me, they just look like cream eyeshadow sticks so I would use them for the eyes more so than anything else, but I don't think they are worth it. You guys know I love the Kiko Cream Shadow Sticks (post here) and they are much cheaper, I am sure similar shades are available.

For more information here is a review by Really Ree and an overview by Temptalia. They retail for $28 which might be around £20, but who even knows as the pound is falling faster than my dreams. It will be available in July, this month, so imminently I presume. What do you guys think? Will you buy it? Are you over it? I don't even want to talk about the angled "highlighting" brush, because it is the most generic and dupable brush you could possibly find. I will admit it is pretty and most likely of good quality, but I would be surprised if every makeup lover on the planet didn't own at least three of these angled contour brushes. The brush retails for $28, again also available in July. Apologies if I sound negative, I just wanted to give my honest opinion. Thank you so much for reading. Take care.
Have you tried anything from the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Collection?
