Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Opal Review [Liquid]

I received a deluxe sample of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal from Sephora and have been using it for the past six months with a bit left. Needless to say a little goes a long way with this illuminator. It's also available in powder form, which I haven't tried yet. I have a preference for Becca's liquid Skin Perfector's and highlighters since I think they look more natural and dewy. Check out my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector below. 


Below is a swatch of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal on my arm taken in natural light. ​

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector


Opal is a gorgeous warm champagne color that is super flattering on my skin. It looks like it has slight golden/warm undertones to me. ​The shimmer is super fine and refined; it's not glittery or over-the-top. It just makes skin look healthy as if you're glowing from within. I feel like this is the perfect highlighter for daytime when you still want to look glowy but natural. 

The color and glow is extremely subtle. I am not sure you can even see it in the photo below but it is noticeable in real life. It's a ​lot more natural looking compared to powder highlighters which tend to be more dramatic. If you want a noticeable high light with lots of glitz you probably won't like this product. 


I generally apply this with my fingertips to my cheekbones, brow bones and cupid's bow. I also like to dab a bit on the inner corner of my eyes in order to make them appear brighter and more awake. Becca Skin Shimmering Perfector can also be mixed with foundation for a more luminous and glowy finish. It's a very versatile highlighter with many uses. ​


What I'm wearing: Nars Tinted Moisturizer, Nars Luster blush with Becca Opal on my cheekbones. 


The formula is super very sheer and lightweight and is extremely blendable. ​It comes packaged in a pump dispenser. 


Becca's ​Shimering Skin Perfectors are pricey but they are some of the best liquid highlighters you can get. The texture and color selection is amazing plus you get so much product. I can't imagine anyone using up an entire bottle any time soon. 

Pros & Cons

I really like the texture and finish of this product. It makes skin look gorgeous and more natural looking compared to powders. The only con is the high price. ​
