Becca Champagne Pop is all anyone can talk about - well as far as highlighters go anyway. As I am forever in search for the perfect glow inducing powder (that and I'm a beauty sheep), I of course purchased a pan of Becca Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector and truthfully I wasn't all that blown away. Yes, the gilded gold shade is utterly beautiful but the yellow undertone doesn't seem to sit well on my somewhat sallow complexion - you can't win them all. If you aren't as enamoured as you hoped you would be with Champagne Pop, may I point you in the direction of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone. Gah it is a beautiful, soft ivory shade that delivers an almost angelic glow (I say almost as I am a sinner and no amount of shimmer based powder will disguise this). You need, no you deserve Moonstone in your life and make-up bag.
I can't be the only one who thinks the packaging for Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfectors is a little weird? It reminds me of a car tyre - alloys and all. On the plus side, despite being a large (about the size of the palm of my hand) and altogether flat pan, it is fairly robust and can survive even the bumpiest subway ride - yes I have city tested it for approval. What more could you ask for, or need to know about the packaging for that matter.
Yes Becca Champagne Pop is the most famous of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector range but there is a good few other shades to choose from - five others no less. As I live by the mantra of there is no such thing as too bright or bold a highlighter, the slightly intense tone of Becca Moonstone is all I look for in a highlighter and more. Due to Moonstone being pure shimmer based pigment it can translate a little chalky and stark before being fully blended into the skin - I would also avoid if you have a deep complexion for this reason and perhaps purchase Becca Opal or Rose Gold in it's place but if you have a light to medium complexion make sure you try this out at some point.
Becca Moonstone is a light, bright, white-gold that features no traces of glitter, rather it translates to a soft, metallic almost cream finish on the skin. Yes it is bold (especially if you are a little heavy handed) but if you take the time to blend it fully into the skin, it can offer a soft, ethereal glow that photographs beautifully (nearly everyone on Instagram owns a Becca highlighter for this reason) and wears really well too. As a matter of a fact, it is one of the few highlighters I own that never looks greasy, regardless of how oily I may become over the day - if anything it works with my shiny complexion to make me seem more radiant than I truly am.
Opal, I'm coming for you next.
