BECCA Shimmering Pefector is a “sheer liquid highlighter and moisturizer that veils skin in a soft pearlized glow.” It contains “broad-spectrum sun protection and antioxidants to keep skin looking fresh, young and healthy.”
I received these two samples of Shimmering Perfectors along with some purchases I made in December. The images above are that of sample products and the full-sized packaging differs. Initially I tried these out as a highlighter and with both shades being too dark for my skin-tone they didn’t work for me. It wasnt until I tried them mixed into my foundation that I realized the true beauty of this product.
Becca’s shimmering perfectors contain ultra-fine mica particles that reflect light and diffuse uneven skin tone. The liquid formula is versatile in application. It can be used as a highlighter when placed on cheekbones, brow bones, temples, bridge of nose, and cupid’s bow. You can also apply them as a base, alone, under foundation or mixed along with your foundation. The Shimmering Perfectors can provide a head-to-toe shine when mixed into your body moisturizer.
What you can expect from this slick liquid is a glowing, lit-from-within finish. Its natural enough for everyday, both day and night. A little bit goes a long way and no matter how much I use it never looks overdone. I am exceptionally pleased with my new luminous complexion. I would recommend it for any skin type. While the shimmering perfector became a quick favorite I had to discontinue its use. I started to break out after using this product for several days. Every persons skin differs and this doesn’t stop me from recommending this product to other’s. I do however suggest that you try before you buy as with most products you apply as a base.
- Moonstone – pale gold
- Pearl – white pearl
- Opal – opal
- Topaz – golden bronze
As you can see Opal and Topaz are both too dark for me to use as a highlighter, I would opt rather for Moonstone or Pearl. Although, mixed into foundations both shades provides my complexion with an amount of warmth. Opal would definitely be my choice when using it along with my foundation.
