Becca was one of those brands that I had heard so much about but never really gotten into. I think a Lip Tint stumbled into my collection by chance but it was the highlighters that really caught my eye.

After failed attempts to get my hands on Becca in the US I was excited to see the brand stocked on Sephora online. I picked up Moonstone Shimmering Skin Perfector which is the cream version of the highlighter.

In this post I'm going to be talking you through the formulation, colour, pigmentation, pricing and everything else to do with this product. It is quite an expensive piece of makeup so I want to make sure I can give you all as many details as possible to help you make a more informed decision on whether this is something you want to add to your makeup collection. 

The cream version of the Shimmering Skin Perfector has a really lovely thin cream consistency. This means that it is lightweight but also buildable if you layer it up. The smooth and thin formulation makes it an extremely blendable product and easy to use. 

Being a cream product you do have more flexibility with the way that you use it, being able to apply it under foundation or over the top. Whereas the powder products you are best of using only after your foundation is set. I like using either a small fiber brush to pick up the product and apply it on my cheekbones otherwise fingers are always great to help melt the product into your skin.
Becca Moonstone is a very light champagne colour with a warm golden undertone to it. This makes it perfect for lighter skin since it is quite a subtle colour yet still achieves a beautiful highlight. with something like a MAC Mineralized Skin Finish, on pale skin it can sometimes look a little bit dark and more like a blush so something as light as this seamlessly blends into the skin.

The highlight itself is a gorgeous shimmery light champagne. It has quite a natural finish which makes it perfect for everyday use. It isn't quite as reflective or bold as the powder so if you are looking for something more eye catching then the powder is probably your best bet.

This product retails for $60 which is quite a hefty price-tag for a highlighter. Cream highlighters that are of this high standard in quality are hard to come across. I do think it is worth the money but I wouldn't say it is a must have to every makeup collection unless you are seriously after a cream product rather than a powder. With that being said it is a fantastic product so if you are on the market for a cream highlighter and don't mind spending a little bit of extra money then this could be a great option for you.

It is is available from Sephora Australia
