Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector

Hi everyone,

I hope you’re all having a lovely weekend! I have been a bit preoccupied as we got the keys to our new house on Friday! We aren’t moving in straight away as there are a few things we want to do to it first but it’s so exciting! We have spent the day today going round different furniture and carpet shops and I can’t wait to get everything sorted and get moved in.

Anyway on to today’s review which is a look at the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector. I am actually a bit late to the party with this one as I hadn’t heard of it until fairly recently but I had been looking for a product like this for a long time. I wanted something that would give my skin a lovely, natural glow but wouldn’t leave me looking greasy or sweaty or anything like that. Then when I was in Sephora, I saw the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector and thought it looked like it would do just the trick.

I have been using this product as a base, under my foundation to give my skin a gorgeous glow and make it just look healthier and in better condition. There are five shades to choose from ranging from the lightest which is Pearl to a darker toned shade called Topaz, each with either a golden or pink undertone. I went for the shade Moonstone which is a lovely, pale golden colour as I thought it matched my skin tone the best.

At first I was slightly worried that it was going to look too obvious as it does contain quite a lot of shimmer and I didn’t want it to be really noticeable. I was going for more of a subtle and natural glow to my skin and didn’t want it to look too over the top. Thankfully I got what I was hoping for and my skin just looked extra nice and glowing rather than glittery or greasy.

As I have fairly oily skin, particularly along my t-zone, I was concerned that as the day went on my makeup would slide off more easily having used a product like this or the dewy look would turn drastically wrong and into a greasy mess throughout the day. I needn’t have been worried though as it didn’t affect the longevity of my makeup at all. I can’t say that I noticed it helping my makeup stay in place longer but I feel like Double Wear is hard to budge anyway.

The product isn’t too thick or heavy and blends really well into the skin. I don’t think I would wear it on its own as it does look a bit much when you first apply it. However, once you have got your foundation over the top it is much more natural and gives a pretty and refreshing glow to your makeup look. As I mentioned, I have been using the Skin Perfector mainly under my foundation but there are so many ways to use it. I think I am going to try adding a little to a body moisturiser and using on my legs and arms for a nice glow this summer as well as using it over my foundation as a highlighter.

Overall the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector is a huge hit for me and although it is a little pricey at £33, I definitely think it is worth it. I only bought the 30ml travel sized version but a little goes a long way with this one so I can imagine it lasting a very long time.

Have you tried the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector? What are your thoughts on it? Which other Becca products would you recommend?

Thanks for reading,

  1. This is a cult favourite and Lisa Eldridge uses it in almost every one of her videos. I don't think I can justify the price to buy one for myself so here's me hoping to receive it as a gift. Great review!

  2. @Your Beauty Fix It's one of my new favourites :) Definitely worth a try! x

  3. @Shireen L. Platt Thank you :) It is very expensive so I'm glad I tried the travel sized version first to make sure I like it. After using it though I don't feel like I'll be able to stop and I'll just keep on buying it! :) x
