Pop the champagne, homegirl! — and if you can do it with a sword, more power to you, because that would mean you’re only about two degrees away from Michonne-level bad-@ssery, and I’D BOW DOWN!
We have a totes legit reason to celebrate today. First, because it’s Tuesday, and Tuesdays are terrific. 🙂 And second, because BECCA has several sparkly, shimmery sets on deck for the holidays, and they’re all available now, so you can get dat glow on your cheeks in time for the office party. (For the record, if there will be karaoke involved, please know that it may take more than two glasses to turn you into Mariah Carey… Yes, I speak from firsthand experience.)
This year’s holiday collection includes three limited edition sets, and they’re all about the glow — in other words, skin highlighted to high heaven.
If you’re a die-hard BECCA shimmer fan, you might want to get your paws on the $34 Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Champagne Glow Palette highlighter trio. It’s available now exclusively at Sephora and the Sephora website.
One of the three shades, pale linen Pearl, is a limited edition shade making its debut right here in this palette, while the other two — Champagne Pop, a soft gold with pinkish peach undertones (the shame shade BECCA released last fall with YouTuber Jaclyn Hill); and Blushed Copper, a warm copper with rose gold (also appeared earlier this year).
I feel like I’ve been raving about BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfectors since the dawn of time because these shimmery, pigmented pressed powders are oh, so flexible. Depending on how disco you feel on any given day, you can either wear them for a soft sheen or a full-blown mirror-like highlighter shine.
Like all Shimmering Skin Perfectors, the ones in this palette should be treated gently, and by gently I mean that you’ll want to wrap this palette in bubble wrap and rubber bands if you ever bring it with you on trips, because these silky soft powders tend to crumble easily.
Incidentally, the three shades here are all on the warm side, so if you like the way you look in warm golds, coppers and peachy tones, you’ll probably like these, too.
If you’re completely new to BECCA, you might, however, want to try the Afterglow Palette ($42) instead, with its five bestselling BECCA products.
They blend like creamy peanut butter and last all day, but you’ll want to apply them with a small-sized face brush (I like the MAC 109), because the 0.056-oz. pans don’t have a lot of room for swiping.
Afterglow is an Ulta exclusive, and you can find it now at Ulta stores and their website.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a BECCA holiday party without Opal!
This shade… Ah! It’s close, personal fave, and I’m happy to see it in here in the $20 Opal Glow on the Go Kit (available now at select Sephora and Ulta stores, and also online).
This golden opalescent pearl is the most wearable of the Shimmering Skin Perfector shades for me. It looks like candlelight on the skin, and if you want dewy, almost glossy, cheekbones, it’s the way to go. The kit comes with two different versions of it, too — a liquid and a powder — and both of them are sized for travel.
I think highlighting fans are really gonna like this one.
Lots more info in the video at the top, and as always, thank you for watching. 🙂
