BECCA Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed: My Pores Would Like to Make a Toast to This Highlighter

Wearing the new $38 limited edition BECCA Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed

One of my life goals is to someday open a bottle of champagne with a longsword or saber (honestly, I would not be surprised to be the only one of us here with that goal).

Another one of my life goals is to someday achieve perfectly dewy skin.

I never expected these two life goals to collide…

Well, technically they don’t, because there weren’t any medieval weapons involved in the crafting of this post, but metaphorically they do, because just like a freshly opened bottle o’ bubbly, BECCA Champagne Pop, the brand’s latest limited edition Shimmering Skin Perfector, will make your cheekbones POP and your skin glow. 🙂

I made this face the first time I swept BECCA Champagne Pop on my cheeks.

Unsung Makeup Heroes: BECCA Damselfly Mineral Blush

Published in: Becca, Face, Makeup, Unsung Heroes


Ah, my Halcyon Days…

No, really. Those were my Halcyon days. That’s when I started wearing BECCA Mineral Blush in Damselfly ($32), with the BECCA Halcyon Days Collection.

And I still get the same thrill from it whenever I see it on my cheeks, which is really something else when you think about it. I mean, if after four years, you’re still excited by a shimmery golden coral powder blush — one among countless other shimmery golden coral blushes on the market — you know it has to be a gem.

BECCA Mineral Blush in Damselfly ($32)

Damselfly’s lovely luminous finish still looks natural, and it takes it from casual Facebook friend to “in a relationship” status. Before the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes, there was Damselfly, and its appearance was a straight-up revelation.

Its understated sheen makes cheeks glow without glistening, and it’s unmistakeable in pics and in person. I don’t know how Damselfly does what it does, but it usually steals the show whenever I wear it. Even in posts about — oh, I dunno — bright coral glosses or matte reds or out-of-this world nude lipsticks (all of which look amazing with Damselfly, by the way), I get different versions of the same question: “What are you wearing on your cheeks?”

It’s BECCA Damselfly, my friend. BECCA Damselfly. 🙂

10 Things I Love About BECCA

10 Things to Love About BECCA

1. Cabrera Liner

I can’t even think about this dual-ended liner without getting a little verklempt. With a metallic bronze on one end and a rich violet with deep brown and purple propensities on the other, it makes my heart sing when I talk about it.

When I finally get around to writing that 10-volume unabridged edition of My Makeup History (by Karen and Tabs), Cabrera will get its own chapter. It’s one of my greatest pencil liner loves of all time.

I Raise My Glass to BECCA’s $38 Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Gold

Published in: Becca, Face, Makeup, Product Reviews

BECCA Champagne Gold

Just FYI, keep your BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Champagne Gold ($38) away from any flocks of wild canaries, because they could potentially mistake it for one of their own.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Champagne Gold, $38

Don’t worry, this highlighter isn’t for the birds. Yeah, it looks jarringly yellow in swatches and the pan (at least I thought so at first), but it’s a totally different story on skin.

Wield a Blending Brush Like a Wizard Wields a Wand With the $40 BECCA Ombre Nudes Eye Palette

BECCA Ombre Nudes Eye Palette

Wearing the BECCA Ombre Nudes Eye Palette ($40) on my eyes

“Is that the girl Kiera Knightly calls to get her beat face?”

With BECCA’s Ombre Nudes Eye Palette ($40) in your makeup bag, peeps will wonder if you’re a celeb makeup artist. The palette makes it a whole lot easier to create professional-caliber, super-blended eye looks, even if you’re totally new to makeup.

Seriously. If I gave a four-year-old hopped up on Oreos and Cherry Coke a couple blending brushes, this palette, a blindfold and my face, that kid would create hella tight makeup looks at least some of the time. 🙂 It’s that good.

BECCA Ombre Nudes Eye Palette

The palette houses five matte brown neutral eyeshadows, some of which only vary slightly, and they all have subtle gray undertones. Some of the shades are so closely related that they wouldn’t even be allowed to marry in some states. 🙂

Because the shades are so similar, they’re very easy to transition into each other, making them absolutely fabulous for hazy, blown-out eyes with subtle gradients.
