When the holidays are here, I love the excuse to glam up my makeup a little. And the second I received this Shimmering Skin Perfector from Becca Cosmetics, I had to instantly try it out.
The Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed is a creamy powder luminizer with an embossed finish in a limited-edition Rose Gold holiday shade. It's gorgeous!
According to Becca's website, this creamy powder luminizer is like "crushed gemstones in a compact for refined luminosity in any light. The formula features ultrafine luminescent pearls that adjust and become one with your skin so your perfect glow is never lost. Unlike the traditional pressed powder method, which simply mixes and compresses dry ingredients, this proprietary formula is a blend of wet and dry pigments ensuring a balanced application every time."
It's even prettier in person. Trust me! This formula features multi-toned, ultrafine pigment pearls that adjust to skin’s natural undertones. It is the sequel to the cult-favorite liquid Shimmering Skin Perfector™. The unique formula also allows for a super controlled application. Ultra-fine particles reflect light and illuminate darkened areas while Nylon-12 helps create a soft-focus effect. This product is perfect for use on both the face and body and makes contouring and highlighting a cinch. Plus, it's paraben-free!
To get the perfect glow for the holidays, use Shimmering Skin Perfector™ Pressed Rose Gold, apply the illuminator up the cheekbones and down the center of the nose with linear sweeps. Three quick sweeps is all you need for a perfectly placed highlight. For fuller-looking lips, follow lip gloss or lipstick with a dab of Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed to the center of your lower lip.
It applies very easily adn wears well. I had no reactions, despite wearing it several days in a row.
It can be built up or as a very subtle highlight. I love this luminizer and think it is perfect for the holidays, and year-round! Think of it as a fancy treat for that holiday sparkle. It retails for $38 and is available at Sephora and Sephora.com.
