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.
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.
That’s where the magic happens…
The finish starts sharp and frosty, but transforms into a gauzy veil of pearly gold once it’s buffed in.
Talk about flattering. Hello, candlelit skin.
It’s actually difficult to make this look bad, LOL! I purposefully packed an obscene amount on my upper cheekbones, just to see if I could make it go all cray-cray-frosty (which my pores and fine lines hate, bah!), but I think it still looked pretty refined and graceful.
It reminds me of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders…just a dreamy, hazy sheen.
AVAILABILITY: Limited edition, and available now online and at BECCA counters.

Speaking of canaries…I don’t think I’ve ever seen a wild canary. Not once. But wild parrots? Yes.
When I worked in downtown SF, I was within walking distance of North Beach where San Francisco’s wild parrots live, and sometimes on my lunch breaks my friend and I would climb the Filbert steps for exercise and see parrots in the trees.
‘Twas very cool!
