BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Pearl

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed icon (0.25 oz.) individually retail for $38 USD ($46 CAD) and are available five permanent shades. It is said to be "a creamy powder highlighter that absorbs and reflects light for the ultimate natural glow."

Pearl is described as a soft luminescent white. [P]
"Find refined luminosity in any light. This bestselling formula is enriched with ultrafine 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 your 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. Quick tip: if you're planning on traveling, stick a cotton round in the compact to fill the empty space and create a cushion to stop your powder from shattering.

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

Worth noting, the Shimmering Skin Perfectors typically contain 0.28 oz. of product, however the new shade, Pearl, contains 0.03 oz. less product.

Pearl is a pale white with neutral undertones and a frosty, luminous finish. The texture was ultra silky, soft, smooth and blended out incredibly easily on the skin. It had nice pigmentation that could be sheered or built for a more intense sheen. As expected, the consistency was very creamy/buttery to apply on the skin. Depending on how much product is applied, it can sometimes emphasized the look of pores or imperfections, but I never had this issue. Pearl lasted +8 hours before fading. (5/5)
* Anastasia Beverly Hills Starlight was darker, more beige.  BECCA Moonstone was darker, more pink.

Overall, the performance and quality of these highlights is consistent across the board, regardless of the shade. A little product goes a long way and application is fool-proof once you figure out what method of application works best for you. Whether you like a strong sheen highlight or a subtle natural finish, with the right brush, these highlighters can achieve anything your heart desires!

As most of you know, highlighters are one of my favorite products and the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors are my go-to. So of course, I highly recommend checking out the new shade, along with the other permanent shades if you haven't already!
