Hello cosmetic lovers! My post is about the so loved and cherished highlighter by so many makeup artists all over the world - Becca Cosmetics Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter.
Packaging: All the products by the brand have very beautiful packagings, haven’t they? I read that sometimes they compare this very highlighter with a flying saucer. But even though it does look a little bit like a flying saucer, it still looks posh and very high-end.
The compact is metal with a rubberized top. There’s brand lettering on it. Inside the compact you’ll find a good quality mirror.
Made in London
Weight: 8g (0.28 oz) It’ll last you for ages, believe me!
A bestselling, creamy, highlighter powder to light up your best features with a high-shine finish.
Like a spotlight for your skin, Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter lights up your favorite features with high-impact, ultra-reflective shine. Inspired by the dazzling light of the midday sun, this iconic formula is enriched with ultra-fine, luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light to amplify your natural radiance. The multi-toned pigment pearls adjust to your skin’s natural undertones. Unlike traditional pressed powders, this unique formula blends pigments with liquids, to create an unparalleled, creamy feel that applies seamlessly for a silky finish that never cakes. The result: a high-shine, elegant finish that doesn’t look glittery.

Let’s pass over to the most interesting part:
Color: I opted for the Champagne Pop color of the highlighter as it seems to be the most universal and versatile. It’s such a bright golden shimmer color with no big shimmer particles to it.
The scent is just amazing yet not chasing.
The texture is claimed to be powder but in reality it isn’t. And I want to assure you, in reality it’s way better. This powder feels like a creamy product when I touch it with my finger. That’s why the product is so hyped and loved by makeup artists!
The product applied more intense and color-packed with a fingertip and if you want to have a subtle effect, you’d better apply it with a synthetic soft brush. If you do this, you’ll get this trendy blur effect of “your skin but better”.
Look how great it looks!
The blending here is done with my fingertip:
And here the blending is done with a synthetic brush:
The highlighter is buildable and you actually can get the same pigmentation as in the packaging if you want. But I think that for the daily makeup, one slightest swipe of a brush is more than enough. And for the evening makeup you can add some more product and be ready to arrest everybody’s attention.
My experience with the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter: I’m all steamed up about this product. It gives such a beautiful delicate glow that I can’t get enough of. This raving makes me say that the product is 100 percent worth the money it costs. So, if you are looking for a really great highlighting product, splurge on this one as it’ll definitely last you for ages.
The lasting power is superb. What else is needed? I wear it the entire working day and in the evening it’s still there and looks as though just applied.
My verdict is 5 stars and 5 pluses!
Thanks for the attention!
