Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Moonstone


I didn't realize until recently how much my highlight section of the beauty drawer had filled up. Until last year I wasn't that excited about this step in my makeup routine all that much and basically used one specific one consistently- The Balm's Mary Loumanizer- a great one actually. I feel like 2016 is the year I really did my research on everything highlight related and then finally felt comfortable expanding my shades and textures. This Shimmering Skin Perfector in "Moonstone" was Mary Loumanizers predecessor (although I still pull that one out from time to time) being the next thing I tried. The thing is like this, there is a huge selection of highlighting powders to choose from now but I try to go for ones that aren't similar to those I already own when I purchase a new one. Some are very bold, some are glittery and sparkly, some yellow toned, some purple and so on. When actually selecting one from my collection to apply, I choose based on what makeup look I'm wearing and how tan my skin is at the time. This specific one is kind of my "all makeup looks highlight" because it's not overdone and works with almost anything. Sephora describes it as a pale gold but to me it appears to be a light beige with some white tones in it and once applied it looks like a natural healthy shine and glow on the cheeks. It's extremely finely milled and so soft to touch with no large chunks of glitter through it. I love that Becca includes mirrors in their compact for on the go touch ups but I'm not a fan of the rubberized feel to the packaging which seems to attract dirt and powder from all sides of my makeup collection somehow.  It's a bit up there in price at $38.00 but the pan size is very decent. It's has lasted me months and months at a time. At the moment I like to apply all of my powder highlights with the Morphe M558 Mini Detail Fan Brush for a precise application and I would say it pairs really well with this specific powder. The reason I reach for this one on more of a day to day basis then for a special evening out is because it doesn't last on my skin for more then about 4-5 hours or so before needing to be reapplied. I believe this is due to how soft the powder is but I'm not totally sure on that.  

If your after that "I woke up like this" natural glow from a highlight, I think you will absolutely love this for an every day look. I would say of all Becca's highlighters this one is the most subtle and the most suitable in regards to varying skin tones. 







Have you given any of this highlighting powder a try? What did you think of it if you have? If you haven't do you plan to?
