Jaclyn Hill and Becca Cosmetics discontinue unreleased eyeshadow palette?!

Hello my little buttons!

In the latest YouTube gossip, Jaclyn Hill (makeup artist, YouTuber) and Becca Cosmetics recently created the Champagne Collection, a highlight and blush palette as well as an eyeshadow palette. Jaclyn allegedly spent a long time creating the face palette and it seems to have been well received, most people love it and it continues to get good reviews.

The eyeshadow on the other hand was a different story, it was a last minute creation that Jaclyn only actually created one shade out of five. As it was a rushed product Becca decided to have it produced somewhere else. Instead of it being made in the USA it was made in China which was clearly cheaper and more importantly they could make it a lot faster.

From reviews it seems the quality of the shadows were really varied, some people were reporting beautiful creamy eyeshadows where as others shadows were dry, stiff and patchy. In response to the bad reviews Jaclyn Hill made a Snapchat informing everyone the palette was going to be discontinued before it was even released as neither herself or Becca cosmetics were happy with the quality of the Shadows.

Everyone seems to have an opinion on this, me personally I think it was incredibly brave of them to pull the palette. It shows true loyalty to their customers and viewers that they were willing to own up to what happened and explain the situation. If you think about it, it must have been incredibly embarrassing for them to admit they messed up but I think in the long run it’s for the best. Although I don’t own any Becca cosmetics palettes or anything at all from the brand to be honest I have heard amazing things. Their eyeshadow formula is known for being second to none so in the long run this could have really damaged Becca cosmetics and Jaclyn Hill reputation. More so than them comming clean and being honest about the balls up.

They must have also lost quite a bit of money by pulling the eyeshadow palette but if it were to be released with the current inconsistencies in formula, the consequences could have been disastrous for both parties.

I know what your thinking, why did they chose to use a cheaper factory to make the product in the first place? It all seems to come down to the fact that it was rushed through and they took a gamble trying somewhere new to manufactor their product. We all make mistakes in life and I’m pretty sure this won’t be happening again anytime soon. The face palette on the other hand is still available to buy and looks gorgeous!

I’d love to hear in the comments below what you think this whole situation!

Jaclyn Hill Favourites Palette by Morphe Brushes

  

Let’s just take a minute to look at this beauty!! As soon as I heard this palette was coming round again I jumped on the chance, after hearing all the reviews last time I couldn’t let this slip away. Even if I did have to pay nearly the price of the palette to get it shipped here! It was so worth it, the colour selection is perfection there are so many different looks you can do with this just looking at it makes me feel so inspired! Here are the swatches:

  
The shadows are soft, smooth, pigmented, they blend beautifully and there are several shades I’ve not seen anything like before. I’ve really enjoyed playing around with different colours and looks, it’s a super fun palette, you can go natural to smokey to colourful it has a bit of everything. As much as this palette is now a staple in my collection I have a few small criticisms. Firstly there’s a lot of fall out, which doesn’t massively bother me as even my urban decay shadows have fall out but I know it would bother a lot of people. I just make sure I do my eyes first before doing my foundation etc. Secondly, the packaging is rather flimsy, I actually keep it in its box just incase!! It’s also a shame it’s not got Jaclyn Hill on the front, even just her name would of been good! Last moan is, it’s not got a matte white, cream or light pink so I usually have to reach for another palette too. Mini moan over lol!! Apart from these little niggly things it’s still in my top 3 favourite palettes of all time! If you can get your hands on it, do it you will not regret it! To finish off here are some photos of the looks I have created with it so far. Lots of love xxx #lovethebutton
