BECCA COSMETICS FIRST IMPRESSIONS



If there's anything in the world I could possibly never have enough of, It's highlighters. I can't consider my makeup complete without a little eyebrow glow or a cheek shimmer and I've tried pretty much every highlighter on the price spectrum. Becca Cosmetics are a brand I constantly see on the blogosphere getting great reviews and I've always wanted to give their massively popular highlighters a whirl. For me, since I spend an awful lot on makeup, I always get steered away from making pricey purchases (the Sunday Riley Good Genes has been on my wishlist for waaay too long). However, thanks to the makeup fairies over at Cult Beauty, they have brought out a series of mini kits featuring Becca's most loved products which I obviously had to try for myself.

[Spotlight Opal and Pressed Opal (excuse the dent, my clumsy nail ruined it) can be purchased here]


I always wanted to try Becca's highlighter so when I came across the 'Glow on the Go' kit for a reasonably priced £20, I had no hesitations. I'm a huge fan of both liquid and powder highlighters because you can use both in a variety of different ways. The shades are Becca's mini pressed and liquid versions of the bestseller 'Opal'. Since I'm going on holiday in a few days I thought this shade would be perfect for topping up my summer glow. I also love the fact that they are mini's, easy to pop in my makeup and transfer to my clutch bag on a night out.

[no flash compared to flash]

As you can see, the products are very pigmented, just a simple few rubs with my finger and you get a gorgeous golden glow shade, which I will definitely have to be careful with as I'm partial to getting too excited with a highlighter. The liquid 'Spotlight' is very subtle in natural light, however when exposed to a flash it's very glittery and I think this would make a perfect all over glow and I plan to mix this with my foundation to see the results!

I'll be posting a makeup look with these highlighters in the next couple of days, along with a guide to hand luggage as I'm jetting off to Ibiza next Saturday. Thanks for reading and a huge thank you to the followers who have stuck by me through this redesign - can't describe how happy that makes little old me.

  13. I absolutely love their pressed formula - it's so amazing! I was a little disappointed with the liquid version to be honest as it didn't seem to knock my socks off for the price (I got the full size so it was over £30!) however Opal is still a gorgeous shade :)
