Review: BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Rose Gold

I have a slight obsession with BECCA highlighters. My dream is for my glow to be seen from miles away and BECCA makes that happen. So to add to my highlighter collection here’s a review on BECCA Skin Perfector Pressed in Rose Gold. First, let’s start off by saying this highlighter is gorgeous. It’s described as a, “soft gold infused w/ rose tones“. I don’t quite agree with the description, personally I find that it applies as a rose toned blush with soft gold infused throughout it. I never find the need to wear blush with this as it’s basically a highlighter and blush in one. It applies like a dream and is extremely pigmented, you need one swipe to have goddess like cheekbones.I’ve found that it easily lasts 8 hours with minimal fading. It retails at Sephora for $46.00 (Canadian) for 0.28oz of product. I’ll let the swatches speak for themselves below;)

Product Description:

What it is:
A creamy, luminizing powder highlighter to light up the features you love with a high-shine finish.

What it does:
Achieve a refined glow in any light with this bestselling highlighter. Shimmering Skin Perfector™ Pressed is enriched with ultrafine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light to amplify your natural radiance. Like a compact full of crushed gemstones, the multi-toned pigment pearls adjust to your skin’s natural undertones. They’re perfect for intense highlighting or layering to create a truly unique glow. Unlike traditional methods, the one-of-a-kind formula blends pigments with liquids, providing an unparalleled, creamy application with balanced color coverage. The result is a high-shine, elegant shimmer finish that doesn’t look glittery.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

Pros:

  1. Super pigmented, you get one hell of a blush/highlight going on with one swipe.
  2. Long wearing, this lasts all day easily.
  3. Rubberized packaging, if you like packaging then maybe this is too plain for you but I’m a fan.
  4. Shade selection, perhaps Rose Gold isn’t for you but you like the way this highlight applies, BECCA  has your back with five other shades to try
  5. Price, retails at Sephora for $46.00 (Canadian) for 0.28oz of product. This is the typical price for a high end product and it will probably last you forever.
  6. Most importantly: glowy rather than glittery, I prefer to glow rather than being a disco ball.

Cons:

  1. Pigmentation/shade, perhaps you don’t quite like how this product has the 2 in 1 (blush and highlighter) effect going on.
  2. Price, $46.00 (Canadian) may be a bit much if you’re on a budget.
