Hi everyone! I feel I haven't written a post on a makeup product for so long so figured there would be no better place to start than a recent love of mine, the BECCA Shimmery Skin Perfector in Moonstone. First of all, I feel I need to apologize for some of the photography in this post. I don't know if this is just me, but I find highlighters are far more difficult to capture on the skin than any other skin product but still wanted to include swatches so you saw it in full effect!
The last few months I've gotten really into finding the perfect cheek products so when I heard the brand BECCA were making a return to Space NK a while back, I was deadset on picking one of these up. I chose the colour 'moonstone', a golden yellow shade as I thought this would be the most natural looking without being too white or stark on my pale skin.
The website states that the Shimmering Skin Perfector can be used mixed in with foundation, under foundation, as a foundation or as a highlighter. I will be honest and say I have and probably would only use this as a highlighter. Although it's more of a sheen than a glitter I don't think I'd enjoy all over my face since I have combination skin so this means I can only comment on how it works as a highlight.
The sleek packaging is a real selling point of this product for me, a highlighter with a pump makes for far easier application in my books so it definitely does well in that department. In terms of the consistancy it's definitely very liquidy so I tend to apply it by sweeping it across areas I'd like highlighted with my fingers and then gently patting it in. I've found by doing it this way, it blends seamlessly onto my skin. Another great feature is that it has SPF 25.
Now, I got this a few months ago for £33 in Space NK which is a lot but since it's 50ml of product and you only need the tiniest amount it will definitely last me a long, long time. This could well be a holy grail item for me and I would definitely repurchase this despite the pricetag (although I won't need to for absolute months!) and recommend it to anyone in search of a sheen finish highlight or just a fellow highlighter addict like myself!
Have you tried this? What's your favourite highlighter?
