A shimmering duo from Becca

Becca Luminous Blusher in Camellia Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in PearlI was possibly too excited when Becca released the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Pearl as an individual shade – finally, the ghostly of face could be über-glowy too. I loved the look of Champagne Pop but it was just too dark for my skin tone, looking like a shimmery stripe, albeit a rather pretty one. Pearl, on the other hand, is the perfect shade – a glowy white that barely shows up as colour, but rather as sheen. You really do need a light hand with it, unless you want to look metallic (which is fine too – you do you). It’s slightly sparklier than I would like ideally – I tried my fan brush and it only picked up the shimmer particles – so I like a slightly fluffier brush, like this Morphe one, which seems to mesh it with the skin more and minimise the glitter. The SSPs are £32 but I can’t see myself hitting pan for bloody ages.

The Luminous Blushes are a new launch from Becca and because I obviously don’t have enough pink blushers, I bought the shade Camellia. Let me just say that the colour of it in my photo is a lot closer to the actual shade than how it looks on Cult Beauty, where it’s a far paler, slightly more corally, pink. Luckily I really like it in reality but be careful when choosing – maybe a range to swatch in person before picking up?

Like the highlighter, the blush is super pigmented and if a little goes a very long way. The swatch shows a heavy swipe and how it looks blended out – I’m not a huge fan of Aunt Sally cheeks so possibly blended it more than most people would, but it still shows up as a pretty flush on my cheeks. It is shimmery but not glittery, thankfully, and actually looks relatively natural*. It’s definitely spendy at £27 but, again, I think it’s going to last for years – literally.

Which is your favourite Becca highlighter? Are you tempted by the new blushers?
