After purchasing the Becca skin perfecting powder in moonstone a few weeks back I decided to splurge on the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector, Shade: Pearl during the annual Sephora VIB sale event. You guy's already know that I'm a pearl highlighter addict freak --even still I'm certainly glad I didn't have to pay full price for this little lovely because it's rather expensive. On the plus side --the bottle has a decent fill weight and one tiny drop is all you need for an entire application.
A sheer cream-liquid that perfects skin with light-reflecting pearls for a soft, natural glow. Achieve a subtle luminosity. This formula features ultrafine light-reflecting pearls that melt into your skin for polished, natural-looking radiance. Water-light and sheer, it has a prismatic effect that allows it to adjust in any light, so your refined glow is never lost. This product has been dermatologically tested.
Formula: The thick cream has a flat white color as it pumps out of the tube but turns into a soft shimmering silver pearl shade when blended into the skin. The shimmer here is very subtle. You barely notice it even with a heavy application. It's more noticeable under extreme bright lighting. This is great for women who prefer a soft glow without all the sparkles on the face. Women of any age or skin tone can find this suitable and useable. I have fair skin and it shows up more as a glowing product than a shimmer. I love that the pearl works well with my yellow-tone skin because sometimes pink or gold highlighters appear somewhat dark or shiny on my face. The glow factor lasts for hours, doesn't turn greasy and didn't make my skin breakout. It's a pricey highlighter but because you'll need a drop per application the almost two ounce bottle justifies the price. It will last you for quite some time. On the downside --the pump mechanism has issues-- I returned the first bottle when they pump wasn't working at all and for the second bottle --it pumps out way too much product even if you barely touch the applicator. You'll either have to be really careful or you'll have to unscrew the cap and use a depotting tool to scoop up the cream. For the times you need a little sophisticated highlighter this skin perfector does the trick. Sparkle and glow my little aliens! Wishing you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving Day! Blogging will resume next week. Stay Beautiful!
