Hello Friday! It’s time for the weekend and I am always excited about the weekend, but anyway today is first impression Friday and this month I have decided to talk about a highlighter that has been in my to be reviewed pile for far too long at this point. I am very excited about finally getting around to this because I have heard nothing but good things about this product, so let’s just dive right on in.
Today is all about the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid in the shade Pearl, which is a serious mouthful. This product will run you $41.00 for 1.7oz of product, which comes out to around $24.12 per ounce which is a pretty good price I think. I do wish that this product came in smaller sizes though because this is a lot of product and I am not sure if I will ever be able to get through the full size of this, so it would be nice if they offered a smaller size for a more affordable price.
Now, let’s talk a little bit about the packaging of this one. I am not excited by this packaging, I’m not angry about it either but it just feels like it falls flat. This is a matte plastic container with a black lid, it’s just not exciting. I do like the pump on this product though, I think it a really nice one and gives a nice amount of control, which is especially nice with this product because you don’t really want to pump out too much of this stuff, a little goes a long way with this product.
Now, it’s time to talk about the actual product, this stuff is really thick which was a little bit surprising to me. I think a little bit of this goes a long way for sure, like this glob on my hand here was far too much but this was the first time that I used it so I didn’t have a good feel for it at the time. I have used this one other time after and got a better feel of the right amount to use. Anyway, yes, a little bit goes a long way and I found this really easy to blend out and thin out, so if you are looking for a little less of a blinding highlight this can be toned down though I have not found a way to make it more subtle. I also love how light of a highlighter this is and how neutral it looks, this is perfect with most looks I think.
It is safe to say that I really like this product and for sure can see myself using this in the future, it’s a really fantastic product and it’s easy to use. I do think the price is pretty steep but you do get a lot of product, which is nice but at the same time most people probably aren’t going to be able to finish up a cream highlighter this size so that’s my only real problem with this.
What’s your favorite highlighter?
