So…Pearl, Opal and Champagne Gold really don’t ring a bell?
No, no, they aren’t the names of a Kardashian’s newborn triplets, although I tip my hat to you. Bravo. That was a good guess. 🙂
Pearl, Opal and Champagne Gold are the three colors in BECCA’s new $25 Shimmering Skin Perfectors Spotlights Kit, and if you aren’t already a fan of BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfectors, oh! — let me break it down for you. By the time I’m finished, you’ll probably want to start carrying one (or two or three) of these liquid highlighters with you at all times.
BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfectors are some of the best liquid highlighters I’ve ever seen or used. They have a fine, fairy-like opalescent finish that makes skin glow as if it’s being illuminated from within, and the magical light purposefully ignores pores and fine lines.
These highlighters succeed where I think many others fail. So many of them are either too frosty and look too harsh, or look straight-up oily and greasy on my skin, like I’ve just spent two hours trapped on a New York City subway train with broken air-conditioning in the middle of August.
The Skin Perfectors, on the other hand, create a soft, natural-looking glow that makes you look like you just spent those same two hours at a spa.
The limited edition Spotlight Kit comes with three deluxe sample-size 0.17-oz. BECCA Skin Perfectors for $25, including two of my favorites from the permanent collection — glimmering white Pearl and gleaming golden Opal — as well as Champagne Gold, a limited edition yellow gold shade.
All three also have a doe-foot applicator, which, truth be told, I prefer to the pump that comes with the regular 1.7-oz. Shimmering Skin Perfector bottles because I think the doe feet (foots?) are easier to control.
I like to dot and blend these on my upper cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, on my Cupid’s bow, and just above and below the highest point in the arch of my brow, and I use the tiniest amount. Barely any at all.
For $25 (compare that to the regular full-size Shimmering Skin Perfectors, which cost $41 each!), you get three extra large samples to experiment with and try. I think that makes this set a great gift idea for beauty junkies, but let’s not kid ourselves here… You and I both know you’ll probably end up keeping this one for yourself. 🙂
