One of the things I’ve wanted to do for a long time is start swatching things in my collection. I think swatches can really help figure out what the heck you want. Above is a full swatch photo of the Becca Shimmering Skin Souffles, Pressed Powders & Liquids. Below are some mini reviews of the products.
There are 6 shades of the Becca Shimmering Skin Souffles. They are bouncy in texture, but almost have a gel based. Each shade is a combination of a skin tint and a shimmering skin perfector. They come in small pots, but I still have little to no problem applying them. I typically use a stippling brush to build color, but I occasionally use a finger or a more dense brush. These don’t read too shimmery in my opinion, even in direct sunlight. The only problem I have is though these are a 50/50 mix, sometimes it reads too much one way (shimmer or color). My favorites are watermelon, fig (highlight) & raspberry.
The pressed are some of my favorite highlighters. I actually don’t buy hardly any additional highlighters any more – including Chanel. These are really pigmented and are ridiculously smooth. They can be build up or used with a soft hand. They never translate greasy. These can be put on the eyes or cheekbones. They have a variety of colors, but my favorite is probably opal or moonstone.
I do love the liquids, as they are the originals; however, they are hard to use. If you have dry or dull skin I think these will be great to mix or use as a primer to add glow. Two shades (Opal & Moonstone) come in travel sizes now which I think is great. When mine go bad (and I had no idea they went bad when I bought them!) I would buy the smaller sizes to be able to mix into foundations or wear as a glowy base. Rose gold is new and I only have a sample. It’s really pretty and I think if it wasn’t in the large size only, I would purchase. Topaz is very deep and a pretty glow – almost liquid bronze. My favorite is moonstone to mix into product or apply a bit to add a glowing base.
