There are so many products I keep meaning to review and never get around to it so This Just In is the start of a little series of my first impressions of new-to-me products…
The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Slimlight’s are designed for precise highlighting with a slim, twist up, crayon style pencil promising subtle, mattified luminosity.
The slim pens makes application really easy and removes that fear of ending up with a shiny, over-highlighted metallic looking face – it’s also prefect for using in the inner corners of the eyes, down the nose, the brow bone and on the Cupid’s bow. I also love that this is a creme product – as we move into Autumn and Winter I know my skin will dry out a bit which means I don’t like to overload on powder products. If you have skin that is prone to dryness or more mature then I think the consistency of this would be ideal. It applies smoothly and blends really easily.
I have this in the shade Champagne Pop. I already owned the pressed powder version of this and I love it, but I do need to use a really light hand with it and definitely wouldn’t consider it an everyday highlighter. This Slimlight Champagne Pop however gives a much more subtle effect and I’ve been reaching for it on a daily basis. It’s less pigmented than the powder Shimmering Skin Perfector and doesn’t show up as “glittery” on my face.
The swatches really don’t do this justice and were really hard to capture. The left shows it straight out of the tube and the right shows it blended out. It’s just a beautiful, muted golden glow.
So far, I’m loving it. It’s a much more subtle look than the pressed powder version of Champagne Pop, which may put some people off, but that makes it gorgeously easy to wear. I’d still use the powder for more intense evening looks but this has jumped to the top of my list as a perfect everyday highlighter.
