May 4, 2017:
On April 13th, everyone’s favorite supermodel and TV personality Chrissy Teigen teased on Instagram that she was ‘cooking up something super special’ with Becca Cosmetics. The news rocked the beauty industry with editors and influencers around the world speculating what this ‘delicious’ highlighter would be like.
Allure magazine’s Devon Abelman said the palette ‘is sure to make all of our dreams of attaining Chrissy Teigen’s glow come true’, while Zara Kenyon at Cosmopolitan also called it ‘The dream’. Rachel Krause at Refinery29 even suggested that ‘given Teigen’s expertise in all things edible – and the fact that the mesmerizing Boomerang they posted features her in a chef’s hat with a mixing bowl – it’s probably not a stretch to say that whatever’s happening with #BECCAxCHRISSY will be good enough to eat. (Or look it, at least.)’ Though the brand has released a disclaimer: ‘Although they look delicious, we recommend not trying to eat the palettes!’
If you have been following the #BECCAxCHRISSY story on Instagram and Snapchat, you will have already seen some seriously cute behind-the-scenes shots of Chrissy in a lab coat, as well as a sneak-peek of what the Glow Face Palette looks like. Here’s a round-up of what we know so far…
