You Glow, Girl! Creamy, Luminous Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder in Moonstone

Published in: Becca, Face, Makeup, Product Reviews

Becca Moonstone Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed

Thank you, Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone… Now if I could only wake up looking like this, LOL!

I bet Ryan Gosling would notice when you were wearing the new Becca Moonstone Shimmering Skin Perfector (because he’s dreamy like that!!), but odds are most people wouldn’t.

The luminizing face and cheek powder isn’t really one of those products that grabs you by the eyeballs and won’t let go, like
Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain Lipstick in Madame Batifole, which prompts peeps to cross busy streets to ask, “GUUURRRL, what’s on your lips!?”

Ya know what, though? That’s why I like it. :)

Moonstone gets a different kind of attention. It’s subtle, like a good perfume. Similar to when dudes wear flat-front pants pants instead of pleats, it’s not necessarily a dramatic change, but it’s a SERIOUS UPGRADE.

It’s something I’d wear when I want luminous, glowing skin that doesn’t look hella greasy.

Moonstone’s one of three new Shimmering Skin Perfectors available now exclusively at Sephora for $38 each.

But don’t freak out the first time you swatch this shimmery yellow gold. I should warn you — it looks crazy shiny at first, but once you buff it out, ooh, baby! It’s like late afternoon sun on your cheeks…

And get this — Moonstone is also kind to pores and fine lines.

I should know. I have both! :) And when I wear it on my face/cheeks, I barely notice either.

The most similar products I can think of are the Ambient Powders by Hourglass, but Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfectors have a different texture.

BECCA Belle Époque Ultimate Crème Eyeliner Keeps a Lined Eye on the Future With a Purple Nod to the Past

BECCA Belle Epoque Ultimate Creme Eyeliner

I’ll be the first to admit it because it’s totally true. When it comes to purple eye liner, I’m the star of my own personal snooze-fest.

It happens sometimes after 25 or 26 years… That’s how long I’ve been wearing purple eye liner (since about 1987).

I started by sneaking a rogue stick of purple Lancôme liner out of the house with me every day and lining my upper lash lines with it when I got to school (so sneaky!).

Admittedly, I had no idea what I was doing, so I probably looked like Honey Boo Boo on a bad pageant day, but I didn’t care. I loved the stuff. Still do.

So predictable, I know. :) But you know what? Purple liner does great things for brown, green and hazel eyes.

I’ve always loved the look and felt that brown eyes (mine are brown) look so much more chocolatey and delicious when they’re lined with plum.

Lately, the purple liner love o’ my life has been BECCA’s new teeny, tiny jar of Belle Époque (a shout-out to France’s “Beautiful Era,” I presume), a deep, shimmery eggplant cream liner that draws feathery strokes in a single sweep and has a formula that lasts all day long.

Unsung Heroes: BECCA Papaya Beach Tint

BECCA Papaya Beach Tint

Wearing BECCA Papaya Beach Tint ($25) on my cheeks and lips, available now at BECCA counters, Sephora stores and online

Just added to my list of “Things I’d Like to Do Someday”: eat a papaya (one of my favorite fruits) at the beach (one of my favorite places).

I got the idea from BECCA’s $25 Beach Tint in Papaya, which of course I’ll be wearing when I eat said papaya at said beach. :)

This water-resistant lip and cheek tint is one of the newer batch of Beach Tints launched last fall. Described as a “hot red” by BECCA, I call it a “hot reddish, orangey/coral.” With bad-@ss pigment. Can’t forget that.

I’ve been loving it lately, and not just because of the pigment. It’s also a cinch to apply on cheeks and lips, and all it takes are fingers.

With spring approaching, I’ve been crushing harder than usual on corals in general, and I think Papaya worn as a blush on cheeks pairs purrfectly with bold coral lip colors like Tom Ford’s True Coral and Hourglass Muse.

BECCA Dragonfruit Beach Tint Feeds Dragons, Tints Lips and Cheeks

Becca Dragonfruit Beach Tint

Wearing Becca Dragonfruit Beach Tint ($25)

It’s what I feed my dragon, and he lurves it. :)

Dragonfruit. I don’t even know what that is. It sounds vaguely Asian and familiar, like something my friend Cindy’s grandmother tried to feed us back in the day.

I do know what a BECCA Beach Tint is, though, because I’ve been wearing them for years. Dragonfruit ($25) is a relatively new one from BECCA. Came out in the fall, and it’s made its way into their permanent line.

A multi-purpose poppy pink lip and cheek product (say that five times fast!), part blush, part lip stain, pure convenience, and it’s water-resistant, too.

The only downside I can see: you might not want to wear any other blush.

I love this color! It’s brightening, goes great with warm and cool eye makeup shades, and it doesn’t even require a brush to apply. Lazy girl love , to infinity and beyond!!

Unsung Heroes: BECCA Eye Tint in Gilt

BECCA’s $24 Eye Tint in Gilt

Not “guilt,” like in how Tabs should feel after he exercises his claws on the cushions of my favorite chair, but “gilt,” as in BECCA’s $24 Eye Tint in Gilt, which gets extra Unsung Hero holiday party brownie points today for the tiny pieces of golden glitter swimming in its shimmery bronze base, and for its fabulously long-wearing, water-resistant cream eyeshadow formula.

I can apply a layer on my lids first thing in the morning, spend the day running errands for Santa (Tabs), head back home at night, and hang out by the tree after dinner with Gilt shimmering and shining under the tree’s blinking lights, even when I skip wearing a primer.
