"Find refined luminosity in any light—this formula features ultra-fine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light so your natural radiance is never lost. Unlike the traditional pressed powder method which simply mixes and compresses dry ingredients, this unique process blends pigments with proprietary liquid binders, resulting in unparalleled, creamy application with balanced color dispersion. Like a compact full of crushed gemstones, the multi-toned, ultra-fine pigment pearls adjust to skin’s natural undertones for a truly unique glow."
The packaging is a round compact with a silicone texture and features a mirror. The compact itself feels very slim and durable in the hand, but the product itself is quite delicate, so they're not the safest for travel—a great tip is to place a cotton round in the compact to prevent the product from shattering! With most of the limited edition shades, they occasionally have a raised design pressed into the product. (For example, Blushed Copper and Champagne Gold.)

These highlighters are best applied using a fluffier brush, like a fan brush, to ensure you won't over apply the color or get an intensely frosted finish that could emphasize pores or imperfections on the skin.

Blushed Copper is a medium-dark, golden copper with warm undertones, micro-shimmer and a pearl finish. The texture was soft, smooth and felt more dense in the pan, but this didn't effect how easily it blended out on the skin. This shade had incredible pigmentation that, depending on your skin tone, will either make an excellent blush for fair-medium or a highlighter for medium-darker complexions. Regardless, Blushed Copper left a fine-shimmer glow to the skin and wore well for +9 hours. (5/5) *According to Becca, this particular shade is said to have elements of a blush and a luminizer fused together, so the rich pigmentation isn't a surprise.
Champagne Gold is a light-medium, yellow gold with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was soft, smooth, silky and blended out nicely. This shade had good pigmentation, but it did tend to lean more yellow than golden on the skin. Champagne Gold left a soft, luminous glow and wore well for +9 hours before lightly fading. (5/5)
Moonstone is a light-medium, golden champagne with hints of ivory, warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was soft, silky, finely-milled and applied very smooth on the skin. This shade had good pigmentation and left a nice, luminous glow to the skin. Moonstone wore well for +9 hours. (5/5)
Opal is a light-medium, golden champagne with hints of pink, warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was soft, silky, finely-milled and applied ultra smooth on the skin. This shade had good pigmentation and left a nice, luminous glow to the skin. Opal wore well for +9 hours. (5/5) *Moonstone and Opal have equal performance, the only real difference with these powders is the coloring.
Rose Gold is a medium-dark, peachy copper with warm undertones, micro-shimmer and a pearl finishThe texture was soft, smooth, finely-milled and blended out easily on the skin. This shade was highly pigmented and left a nice glow to the skin that wasn't overly frosted or metallic. Rose Gold wore well for +9 hours before fading. (5/5)

Overall, the performance and quality of these highlighters is consistent across the board—they are ultra soft, silky, nicely pigmented and leave an incredibly beautiful, luminous glow to the skin. A little product goes a long way and application is fool-proof once you figure out what beauty tools will work best for you. As most of you know, highlighters are my number one product and the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed are my absolute favorite. So of course, I highly recommend checking them out!
