"BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector™ Luminous Blush features multi-dimensional, versatile blushes to create a subtle, shimmering flush. Specially designed to flatter all skintones, this collection is inspired by the fan favorite Shimmering Skin Perfector—just the right balance of color and light. Wear them alone for subtle blushed luminosity, or as a blush topper layered on top of your favorite matte blush for an added pop of radiance."
The packaging is the brands signature round compact with a silicone texture and features a mirror. The compact itself feels very slim and durable in the hand—it's identical to their Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed iconhighlighters, just smaller.

These Luminous Blushes iconwere designed to either wear alone for a subtle hint of color and glow, or used as a blush topper to be layered over other blushes to add an extra pop of pigmentation and luminosity to the cheeks.



Camellia is a light-medium, candy pink with hints of yellow, warm undertones and a frosted finish. The texture was drier and lightly chunky in the pan, but it had no issues smoothing out during application—it was very smooth and blendable on the skin. This shade had nice, semi-opaque pigmentation and didn't emphasize pores or imperfections. Camellia lasted +8.5 hours before fading. (5/5)
* MAC What I Fancy (LE) was lighter, more peach, matte. NARS Blasphemy (LE) was warmer, less pink, more matte. Clinique Pink Pop was brighter, less less opaque, less frosted.



Dahlia is a medium-dark, berry red with warm undertones and a frosted finish. This shade had excellent pigmentation and a little product went a very long way—it would certainly work best on deeper skin tones, however I initially bought it with the intention of using it as an eye shadow. The texture was lightly dry, but remained soft and blendable on the skin. Dahlia wore well for +9.5 hours before fading. (5/5)
* Clinique Cola Pop was warmer, more red, less frosted. NARS Dolce Vita was darker, less muted.


Foxglove is a medium, pink rose with warm undertones and a frosted finish. Unlike the other shades, this particular one had a much softer, almost buttery texture in the pan. It applied and blended very smoothly on the skin without enhancing the look of pores and had rich color payoff, despite the fact that it did like to sheer out rather easily. Foxglove wore well for +8.5 hours before fading. (5/5)
* Urban Decay Easy (LE) was darker, warmer. Clinique Rosy Pop was brighter, warmer, less frosted. Too Faced Your Love Is King was warmer, more red, less frosted.


Snapdragon is a medium, coral pink with warm undertones, gold shimmer and a frosted finish. Once again, this shade had a softer, more finely-milled consistency both in the pan and on the skin. It had mostly opaque, buildable pigmentation that could easily be worn alone as a blush and gave the cheeks a nice, frosted glow. Snapdragon lasted +8.5 hours and didn't enlarge the look of pores. (5/5)
* Clinique Peach Pop was less opaque, warmer, less frosted. MAC Modern Mandarin was lighter, more orange.


Overall, these are excellent illuminating blushes. I really appreciate that they are more on the subtle side due to their semi-opaque pigmentation. They can be built up and used as a blush, or applied with a lighter hand and layered over other blushes to add extra extra oomph and glow to the cheeks! Another plus, I personally didn't experience any issues with them enhancing unwanted texture! My only "downfall" is while the Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blushes iconcome in a great selection of shades, it would have been nice to see a cooler toned shade in the line.

With all of that said, if you're a fan of the regular Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed iconhighlighters or you just like that luminous, glowing cheek look than I do recommend these—they are certainly worth checking out!
