Hey All! Hope you’re having a great time wherever you are. Here’s another highlighter post (as if we don’t have enough highlighters already, LOL) that will remind you of just how difficult it is to avoid purchasing any highlighting product at all. Yes, it’s true. When it comes to highlighters, we’re all a sucker for them, ain’t that right? Especially if they’re really good, and especially if they’re from Becca.
I’ve always wanted to collect a few highlighters from Becca, especially the original Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighters (0.28 oz: $38) because they’re simply one of the best highlighters in the market nowadays. I’ve heard and read so many good reviews about the Shimmering Skin Perfectors and I’ve also tried their Becca x Jaclyn Hill blush/highlighter compact collab (read here), as well as the Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette (also here). Both are really good products and I really love them a lot.
Becca makes beautiful highlighters. The kind that’s made to last, well-pigmented, and with less fall out. They also made them with beautiful easy to wear combination of colors/shimmers that will suit any complexion. The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighters are not like most highlighters out there. These are silky and somewhat creamy powdery highlighters that are so fine yet so reflective and shiny. They give the perfect shimmer and highlight to the face, and they’re easy to blend and easy to layer. With all that, these are also easy to apply with just a moderate dab of a fan brush. It gives a naturally luminous glow that’s sure to last for a long long time.
All the shades swatched for this review are really gorgeous. I love them all and I think they’re very versatile. I could think of several different occasions as to where I could wear them. I didn’t purchase the Pearl shade, as I think it’s a pretty dupable shade. I also didn’t purchase the Champagne Pop shade because I already have the Jaclyn Hill collab compact which contains the Champagne Pop and Flowerchild duo, but it will be swatched below. For me, Opal is the best and most beautiful shade for my skin tone. I love that it has the right amount of pink and gold shimmer with some pearl in it. Next to Opal is Champagne Pop, which is very similar to Opal, you couldn’t almost tell the difference between the two, except that Opal is just slightly rosier or a bit more muted that Champagne Pop, while the latter is more of a light golden pink.
Champagne Pop – light Gold with Peachy Pink undertone
Moonstone – Pearl with a bit of Gold
Opal – Soft Pearl with soft gold and muted pinkish peach shimmer. Universally Flattering
Prosecco Pop – Golden Shimmer
Rose Gold – Warm golden peachy pink rose
Aside from Opal and Champagne Pop, I also love Moonstone, especially if I wanna go “all shimmer and don’t care” kind of vibe. Prosecco Pop is more like pure Mida’s Gold in your face kind of thing, while Rose Gold can double as a shimmery blush or on top of a bronzer.
These Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighters are truly beautiful beyond words. A lot of people have mentioned that the formula of these is by far the best, even compared to the ones that Becca had released with their different collaborations from different Influencers. If you’re gonna have just one highlighter in the world, I truly recommend any of these, as there won’t be any regrets.
Oh, I can’t wait to review the Becca Light Chaser Highlighters. Coming soon…
The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter is available at Sephora, Lord & Taylor, Dermstore & Ulta
