Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter in Rose Gold
Price: $38 Purchase: From Sephora, Becca Cosmetics, and Online
I finally got my hands on this much talked about and anticipated highlighter, I must say I’m thrilled to own one, though they have been around for some time now.
I saw the BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector Champagne Pop on a colleague, and it looked so striking with a beautiful shine and radiance to it so clearly that’s what I was going for initially. It was by chance I got this Rose Gold one. The sales lady at Sephora shop in Toronto gave me the highlighter in Rose Gold by mistake, and silly me, I took it home without confirming the colour. Rather than returning it I used it and to my surprise I loved it.
This highlighter is subtle and quite natural looking. The Rose Gold highlighter shade is perfect for every day. The radiance is incredible and not too over powering but yet clearly visible and highly pigmented. However, if you are looking for that metallic look then Becca shimmering is not the one; it adds a striking shimmer to your appearance.
This highlighter has a soft shine creamy, powdery texture; it’s warm-toned, and the colour is a blend of copper, light pink and peach. It applies well and blends remarkably well on the skin. It’s ideal for most skin tone.
What I noticed is when I over apply it accentuate any pores I have so you need to use lightly. It also stays on my face the whole time without a trace of fading unless I wipe it off which is great. I’ve tried some drugstore ones and other brands; most of them have not complimented my complexion like this highlighter.
How I use it
I highlight my face to get a perfect finish makeup look. I apply a reasonable amount with a brush to my forehead, the bridge and the tip of my nose, my cheekbones and my brow bones to define my eyebrows. To be extra, I just sweep a little on my neckline and shoulders.
Becca Rose Gold Shimmering Skin Perfector is an excellent highlighter. It’s luxurious, luminous, and ideal for everyday use and night use. It does what it says although it's pricey; I’m impressed with it overall. If you’ve tried it, please let me know what you think in the comment section below.
