Becca Luminous…Continued

It’s hard not to know about Becca’s original Shimmering Skin Perfector – I feel like it made a thousand cameos in articles about highlighting and strobing in the last few months.  I’ll be honest, though…I’m  not a fan.  

Yes, of course I LOVE the idea of ethereal, glowing dewiness…  But shimmer?  I’ve moved on.

It isn’t that I don’t love shimmer and glitter also, for the right event or performance (the latter which goes without saying)…  But at nearly 38, I really don’t want it on my face anymore.  (I may well have it on my nails for moons to come…but I feel like I can get away with that a little bit easier.)

Despite my personal dislike, the product does have a wide following…and often five-stars on sites.  If you don’t mind glinting in the sun a bit, it is a lovely wash of radiance, and wears (as I understand) quite well.  Hopping on the coattails of that success, the Company is now offering a Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush.

I adore the word “luminous” so of course I checked it out…  The six shades being offered are:

 

  • Snapdragon (coral)
  • Tigerlily (tangerine)
  • Blushed Copper (copper)
  • Camellia (ballerina pink)
  • Foxglove (orchid)
  • Dahlia (cabernet)

The first two can be purchased using the link above, and the others will be available April 7th, on Sephora, and on Becca’s website.  

I think I will wait to see swatches, and read descriptions before making a full judgment (it’s only fair) but I am thrilled that “luminosity” has become such a thing.  What makes it better is when a subtle flush of color is added – the two in combination are a surefire way to get to “youthful radiance”…and I’m all for that.  

Still, I’d like it to be as natural and shimmer-free as possible.  As an athlete and woman who prefers to enhance just barely, it’s important to me not to drown out in a sea of sparkle.  Curious to see what these end up looking like on the skin!
