BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Opal Glow On The Go

If you are obsessed with highlighting/ strobing or whatever they call it now, this is a must-have!
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Opal

About the brand
"The whole philosophy of BECCA is about creating a natural, flawless look. It's really about skin looking amazing - everything else is secondary."

- Rebecca Morrice Williams, Founder

 BECCA was founded by Rebecca Morrice Williams, makeup artist in Australia. When she couldn't find the perfect foundation that conceals, is lightweight, looks natural and stay fresh all day she went to create it herself! BECCA's philosophy is to reveal your natural beauty than covering it up by matching your skin tone and highlighting your natural features with either a dramatic eye or bright lips.

About the product

This travel friendly kit comes with BECCA's best selling Opal shade in pressed and liquid form. Use these to luminize the skin for a natural glow and/or highlight touch ups during the day.

You can find this set at Sephora, Ulta, Lord & Taylor, JC Penney and other retail stores that carry the brand.
The Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Opal is a creamy luminizing powder that veils skin in a soft pearlized glow with lustrous velvety finish.
It is a tad size bigger than a regular eyeshadow pan (compared to theBalm Shady Lady eyeshadow pan). It is as big as the glass jar container of a Maybelline Color Tattoo. 
I do not own any MAC eyeshadow pans so I can't tell if it's bigger than that or not.

The Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight Opal formula features ultra-fine light-reflecting pearls that melt into your skin for polished,natural-looking radiance.
It comes with a doe-foot applicator for easy application. It has a creamy consistency to it than other liquid highlighters that can be too runny. The size of the tube is smaller than your regular lip gloss tubes. It's as tall as a Dose of Colors liquid lipstick but a bit skinnier. 
*I prefer to compare these sizes to a familiar beauty product than giving you exact measurements. #sorrynotsorry

My Thoughts
I purchased mine from Sephora's website and was very excited that it came in this size since I did not want to commit to the full size Shimmering Skin Perfect Pressed Opal. I love that the mirror in the compact is big enough to use when applying the highlighter. 

I usually just highlight on my cheekbones and cupid's bow, and sometimes I would use this on my eye lids, brow bone and inner corner of the eye when I don't feel like putting on any eyeshadow. The finely pressed powder applies so smooth and blends easily! The glow this gives looks so natural without any chunky shimmers at all. A great highlighter that gives that J.Lo glow indeed! 

The Shimmering Skin Perfect Spotlights Opal I still have to play with some more. I do love using this as a cheekbone highlight as well and on the eyes. I love the creamy texture of this product and would love to see how this will look if I mix it with my moisturizer.

This kit I think is worth buying if you don't want to commit with the full size ones. It is a great way to try out the products. I love carrying this with me everywhere too, to make sure my highlight is always on point! 

Not to get you into panic-mode here but the holidays are here and this is a great one to gift to the beauty/ makeup lovers in your life (just saying!).
