BECCA Illuminators Mini's | Review

I've been wanting to try out BECCA products for a long time, as I always see the products being reviewed on Youtube and other blogs, yet it's hard to get them cheap in Ireland. Yet when I was in Berlin I picked up mini products from Sephora to try out to see whether I liked them to invest in the full product. The products are the Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlights Opal and the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Opal. One is a liquid highlight and the other is a pressed powder. 

I don't normally use liquid type highlighters as I don't think I can blend them out as well as powered ones, so it was interesting for me to try it. The Shimmering Liquid Skin Perfector comes in a mini tube and it is applied on your face like a liquid lipstick. It's a pigmented product so you don't need to apply too much. I'm not the biggest fan of the finish on it, it leaves your face looking a little duey and remains looking a little wet even when dried in, I think it could look nice but I don't think I can pull it off. I find it hard to also find a happy medium when blending it in, I either blend too much or not enough, I think it just takes a lot more work than a powder version. It leaves a very nice silver shine though.

The Shimmering Skin Pressed Perfector in Opal is the reason I wanted to try the mini's, and I love it. The product itself comes in a cute little package, with a mini mirror on the inside which I love. The product is a shimmering gold and it's a little bit darker than the highlighters that I normally use. It leaves your skin really bronzed and warm, while shimmering. I think it would be perfect for summer and the warmer tones that come with it. The product doesn't come out of the packaging as loosely as some other highlighters I've tried and although I'd consider it pigmented but it needs a little bit more effort to build it up on the brush to apply.

The swatches are the Shimmering Skin Liquid Perfector , and the Pressed Shimmering Skin Perfector.

Has anyone tried any of these highlighters/illuminators before? There's lots more from this brand I'd love to try!


  1. I haven't tried anything from Becca before, but i do think that 'Opal' looks nice. I would like to try it out one day xx

  2. I genuinely didn't even know you could get minis of the likes of BECCA! As someone who has never tried anything from the range, the minis would be a great place to get started! Opal looks seriously beautiful!
