My todays post is for bidding adieu to Becca Cosmetic brand. Soon the brand is going to be closed and it was very painful to hear when it was officially mentioned on Instagram. The brand was know for its dazzling highlighter also called as Skin perfector. I got my hands on this product in 2019 during black Friday sale from Sephora. I got a great deal of 4 mini highlighters which are way too impressive. Lets get straight to the review.
Price- Aed 92/- each (Sephora)
Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter is an award-winning highlighting powder with a creamy texture that melts into the skin for high-impact radiance.
The formula is enriched ultra-fine, multitoned, luminescent pearls that adjust to your complexion and amplify your natural radiance.
This unique formula blends pigments with liquids, creating a creamy texture that applies evenly with no caking. Inspired by the dazzling light of the midday sun, the result is a high-impact, elegant finish that doesn’t look glittery.

My experience with this product-
The sturdy round metallic gold packaging with Becca name embossed on the top has really stollen my heart which was the one reason for the purchase. The compact / mini size makes it travel friendly but be careful as its very buttery and can get cracked easily. Being a mini size compact, they also provided the mirror inside it which make it more convenient for touch ups.
The texture is smooth, buttery and delicate. Consistency of product is impressive as it is easily blends in to the skin without any efforts. The color is opaque and can be witnessed in a single swipe. As stated, the formula is enriched ultra-fine, multitoned, luminescent pearls that adjust to your complexion and amplify your natural radiance is 100 % correct. The moment I have applied the highlighter on the skin it got easily adjusted to my skin tone giving it a natural glow.
The lasting power is amazing, it stays for 5-6 hours on my combination skin. The staying power increases when applied above liquid highlighter. The highlighter standsout after using setting spray giving the natural glow all we crave for making us not less than any goddesses. The shimmers range from medium to high and can be intensify as required. If you are blessed with amazing and clear skin, you can wear it on bare skin as well. I had to be very careful while using the product as its extremely delicate plus I have received one broken product which has broken my heart. SO if its fall down, god bless your heart.
Now let’s talk about 4 shades I got in sale-
1. Vanilla Quartz- it’s an off white shimmery gold shade.
2. Prismatic Amethyst- it’s a purplish shade with a tint of pink shimmer and really looks stunning when applied.
3. Rose Quartz- it’s a rose shade with a golden shimmer in it and can be worn on daily basis as it has a medium coverage.
4. Opal- it’s a warm golden shimmer shade more near to champagne highlighter and it’s one of the stunning shade. Suitable to every skin tone especially Indian skin tone.
Overall, I am a fan of Becca highlighters. Inspite of being highly charged the product do all the magic on skin as they claim. It gives natural and luminous glow which makes you feel like goddess. It’s the last chance to get your hands on this product and I do highly recommend it to have one in your vanity box. Trust me, you wont regret.
