Becca Shimmering Swatches

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

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.

    I want to rub Becca highlighters all over my body. I need Rose Gold asap, and throw in some of those souffles while I’m at it. My wallet isn’t ready for the Sephora VIB sale.

    I have dry skin for sure …. I dearly love the poured version in Opal but have been wanting to try Rose Gold in the poured version as well. I know Moonstone is the shade lighter than Opal but its far more gold and I’m not fond of that; I prefer pink tones.

    I do have the liquid version in Opal as well, in the travel size. I see that it expires in 9 months. I use the liquid on my declate area, arms, sometimes neck …….. so I can use it up before the expiration date. I would dearly love Rose Gold in the liquid but I’m a bit concerned that like yours, mine will also go bad before I can use it up.
