I recently received two Becca highlighter samples and was so excited to try them out!
I know Becca highlighters have been the “it” products lately. Especially the new Champagne Pop highlighter which they collaborated with Jaclyn Hill.
Anyways..I received the shimmering skin perfector highlighters in both the poured and pressed version and both are in the shade “Opal”.
Both retail for $38.
The pressed version is available in 6 different shades and the poured is available in 5 different shades.
Description of Pressed Powder:
What it is:
A creamy powder luminizer that absorbs and reflects light for a superb natural glow.
What it does:
Find refined luminosity in any light—this formula features ultrafine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light so your natural radiance is never lost. Unlike the traditional pressed powder method which simply mixes and compresses dry ingredients, this unique process blends pigments with proprietary liquid binders, resulting in unparalleled, creamy application with balanced color dispersion. Like a compact full of crushed gemstones, the multi-toned, ultra-fine pigment pearls adjust to skin’s natural undertones for a truly unique glow.
Description of Poured Highlighter:
What it is:
A pigment-rich, creamy formula that provides high color payoff with a soft, sophisticated shimmer.
What it does:
This rich cream formula features multi-toned, ultrafine pigment pearls that adjust to the skin’s natural undertones and accentuate the high points of the face with sophisticated shimmer. Liquid hydrators create a smooth, creamy finish, bringing light and lift to your best features.
My initial thought was that I would love the pressed version more. My skin tends to do better with powder products than cream.
However, both are amazing and absolutely stunning on the skin!
The powder or “pressed” highlighter definitely gives a more intense highlight while the poured is more natural.
I love applying the poured or “cream” highlighter with my beauty blender because it gives me that “I just woke up like this” look. It gives a healthy radiance which is just lovely.
The pressed version can be played down by using a small amount. But you can definitely play it up. I love applying a heavier amount when I’m going out in the evening.
I love that neither product has chunky glitter in them. They will also last a very long time since you need such a small amount to achieve a beautiful glow.
I always receive wonderful compliments when wearing these highlighters. I even had a Sephora employee ask what I was wearing and she was shocked when I told her.
I’m so glad I had the opportunity to try these out and will definitely be purchasing the full size in the future!
Hope you are having a beautiful and wonderful day!
