I've been discovering more and more amazing products from BECCA lately, and their infamous BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector is as amazing as many beauty lovers have said!
This is at first glance a liquid highlighter, but it also manages to do much more.
First is has an SPF 25+, which is a fantastic benefit for protecting the skin while at the same time providing a beautiful glow. What separates this product from many other liquid highlighters on the market is the texture and finish. It is silky smooth and almost weightless on the skin, but the finish, while containing very fine shimmer, also manages to give a hint of dewiness that works on all skin tones.
I loved using this as a traditional highlighter on my cheekbones, brown bones and the bridge of my nose because I knew I could carry it off in the daytime without looking overly sparkly or glimmery. It's natural looking shimmer (not an easy feat!). The effect is luminous but NOT shiny - so those of you with slightly oily/combination skin can also use it. When I used a thin layer all over my face before liquid, cream or powder foundation or BB cream, I also got a beautiful radiance - a lit from within effect. The product did not clog my pores, cause irritation or dry out my skin during the day.
The Perfector is quite concentrated, so two pumps is all it took if I wanted to apply it as a "highlighter primer" all over my skin, and just one pump for spot highlighting.
There are four shades to choose from, but the Topaz (shown, above), which is a perfect mix of gold and bronze is the shade that worked with my brown skin tone. The other three shades are lighter and have cooler undertones, so for very fair skin the Pearl or Moonstone would work well.
File this under those beauty products that you didn't even know you needed until you try it! - RLB
