My Experience with Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Moonstone:
This is an absolutely amazing product. All the hype surrounding this product is so true and it totally lived up to my expectation and more.
Packaging: I do have a travel size version of this which comes in a squeeze tube, but the full size does come with a pump.
Texture/Consistency: This product is very smooth and creamy, and blends into the skin without any effort. I dab a little on the back of my hand and then take some on my fingertips and dab on the areas I want to highlight which are the high points of the cheeks, the bridge of the nose, above eyebrows and on brow bone and cupid’s bow.
The luminosity of this product is instantly notable as you move the face and the way it catches the light. The intensity of the shine can be built up in multiple layers, but I prefer my highlight to be subtle.
It does not look like it contains any big particles of shimmer or glitter yet the glow it gives is unmatched by any highlighter I have used so far. It does not accentuate the pores either.
The shade “MoonStone” is a pale gold color. It does give some color payoff on the skin in a very light subtle sheer way hence you do need to be careful of which color you are going to pick up. If you are of dark skin and you pick up the lightest color, it will look very visible on the skin and vice versa. You can see the picture – I have of all the shades of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector that I own side by side for comparison.
The shine and glow is very natural looking and does not scream fake. It really does give your skin a heavenly glow which looks both brilliant in real life and photos alike. It does not make the skin look greasy or oily. I highly recommend this product – it’s the best highlighter in the market hands down.
