I'm blown away by this incredible split pan duo! I'm a longtime fan of the Champagne Pop highlighter and I already own quite a few of them (like I mentioned before). And I must say that, this particular one is of a higher standard than the ones that I own in the palette form. Let me clarify: I own the regular CP shade in a single pan, and then I own the limited edition face palette that Jaclyn designed (which is part of the same collection as the split pans.) and lastly I own the limited edition highlighter trio that Becca came out with around Christmas 2015 - and the quality of the actual highlighter (inside the split pan duo) is higher than in the palettes! I love the palette versions too and I use them all the time, but it's just something about this one that stands out. It's way softer, more buttery and creamy & more pigmented. I feel like it's the exact same formula as the 'original' Champagne Pop that comes in the single pan. But I can't stress enough that there is nothing wrong with the ones in the 2 palettes - if anything they are just pressed harder in the pan and maybe a bit less pigmented - but, to be honest I don't think you'll notice that big of a difference once you actually apply the product to your face. The only thing that MIGHT affect how the actual product applies is that the ones in the palettes has a few of those bigger "chunks" of shimmer/glitter which doesn't apply as nice as the ones that are more finely milled. I also noticed that the palette versions have smaller pieces of powder that lays on top of the rest of the product once you swatch it. It's hard to explain but it has a rougher texture and doesn't swatch as smooth or as creamy. BUT, I use the CP highlighter from the face palette all the time and I haven't had any bad experiences, and just because this "version" of champagne pop is even softer, smoother and more buttery doesn't mean that the other ones aren't good. They are still great highlighters that I use constantly!
But BECCA did a really great job with these duos and even though I can't speak for the remaining 3 that I don't own - I feel like they raised the bar with these and that the quality is what it should be considering what brand it is. And I think it's comparable to the quality of the original BECCA highlighters in the single pans.
And regarding the blush - it's of the same high quality as the highlighter! I don't own the "regular" Flowerchild, but I do own Gypsy which is from the same mineral blush line as Flowerchild. And when I compared the two Gypsy felt way more dry, not as soft and lacked in pigmentation - so it's very clear that they did change the formula. Let's just hope that they do the same to all their mineral blushes and not just to these limited edition split pans!
I definitely give this product 10/10. I mean, just look at the swatches - there is no denying that it's an absolutely stunning product!
