I’m a somewhat recent convert in terms of highlighter. I never really gave highlighting on a day-to-day basis much thought, but I have seen the light (literally). That said, BECCA makes the most glorious cream highlighter that I’ve found, and I simply cannot live without it now. A swipe of it across my cheekbones, down the bridge of my nose, on my cupid’s bow, and in my inner corners makes all the difference in the world! I look so awake and lively, and the product couldn’t be better.
The creamy highlighter is soft and buttery, but not too much to where it gets messy. It applies smoothly and evenly to the skin with a silky feel to the product. There are no chunks of glitter or gobs of sparkles. It looks like radiant moonlight has decided to grace my features, and it’s suitably angelic. There is a shade range of 7 colors that would suit a variety of skin tones and undertones. I have the shade ‘Pearl’ which is the lightest in the collection — a silvery, opalescent white — that works perfectly for me.
The product wears well throughout the day, and it doesn’t make me look greasy, just glowing. My only issue is the hygiene of it. You have to rub your fingers in the pan to pick up the product (it’s too hard for most brushes to pick up product effectively), but as long as you wash your hands beforehand, it’s not a big deal.
Overall, I would highly recommend this highlighter. It’s become my holy grail in a matter of months, and I feel underdressed if I skip it in my morning routine!
