FRIDAY FAVORITE – Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Rose Gold

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter Rose Gold

I feel like highlighter is the je nais se quois of a makeup look. It doesn't always appear super obvious on the skin, but it adds that something special. Seeing a great highlighter on someone is like thinking gosh does that girl have a gorgeous luminosity to her skin, and I would kill for her cheekbones.  So how do we get that Jennifer Lopez glow? Enter the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold.  Be still, my heart...for this product is like everything you wanted in a highlighter that you didn't even know existed. Seriously, it's that good. If there is one beauty item you splurge on this month, go get yourself a BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector.  You can thank me later.


Becca Highlighter Rose Gold

This product lives up to the hype it has been receiving in the beauty community as of late.  At $38.00 for 0.28 oz it isn't cheap, but so worth it. Described as "A creamy powder luminizer that absorbs and reflects light for a superb natural glow," this beauty can be purchased at Sephora and Beccacosmetics.com and comes in four shades.  Rose Gold is my favorite, but the other shades in the line are just as stunning. “Moonstone” is described as a pale gold and probably best compared to the infamous theBalm’s Mary Lou Manizer. There’s “Opal,” a golden opal pearl which looks lovely on olive complexions and “Topaz” a golden bronze pearl that looks great on deeper skin tones.  

The texture of this powder is unlike anything I’ve felt.  It’s so finely milled and pigmented that you barely have to tap your brush on the product and you have enough to highlight your entire face.  The thing about this product that makes it different than other highlighters on the market is the way it's made. In a unique process that blends pigments with liquid proprietary binders the result is a creamy texture, that delivers balanced color dispersion upon application. The formula contains ultrafine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light and adjust to skin's natural undertones producing a unique glow.   I know this is pricey, but trust me if you are in the market for a highlighter this is worth the investment, and in my opinion the best out there.  I love to use this with my Sigma F35 tapered highlighter brush on the high points of my face.  I focus on the cheekbones, bridge of my nose and if I feel inclined to go above and beyond I will tap this above my cupids bow, in the inner tear duct, and highlight under the brow bone

So if you couldn't tell from my raving I'm a big fan of this product and couldn't wait to share it with you guys.  I hope you enjoyed this week's Friday Favorite and if you have tried any BECCA highlighters before or if there are any other highlighters you would recommend let me know in the comments below, I am always in the market to expand my collection!  Thank you so much for stopping by Brazen Brunette and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
