Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in “Moonstone” Review & Swatch-
was am a highlighter addict by nature & there was a time I blew away most of my money on different highlighters in different textures but now I am smarter (I hope!) & stick to 2-3 of the cult ones. Among them, if I have to choose the one I cannot do without, it will be invariably Becca & I have a couple from them in different finishes. The one I will review today is their cult “Moonstone” in liquid form.
What Becca Says-
Ultra-lightweight and breathable, BECCA’s buildable Shimmering Skin Perfector is ultra sheer, to enhance your skin’s natural lustre without any artifice. A perfect base for make up, this can be buffed over bare skin for an enviable, lit-from-within effect, or applied as a highlight to enhance cheekbones, brow bones or décolleté. Creators of exquisite, high-performance make up formulations – with blendable textures and wearable shades – BECCA is synonymous with effortless enhancement. Multi-award-winning, the rich pigments, soft hues and weightless coverage make it easy to achieve an enviable, airbrushed effect – so you look naturally luminous (and absolutely flawless). With emphasis placed firmly on creating the perfect canvas, BECCA’s primers, illuminators and foundations blur together seamlessly, to help you achieve the ultimate, radiant finish – think ‘your skin but better’.
How To Use-
May be used on the face and body. To highlight the face, dab a small amount over foundation using your fingertips or brush to cheekbones, brow bones, temples, bridge of the nose and cupid’s bow. When highlighting the body, apply to décolletage, shoulders, and legs. Spotlighting: After applying makeup, dab a small amount onto cheek and brow bones. A Luminescent Base: Before applying primer, use Shimmering Skin Perfector as a base over the entire face using fingertips or a brush. Follow with foundation and add a touch of Concealing Creme where needed. All Over Inner Glow: Mix half a pump of Shimmering Skin Perfector with your favourite foundation or moisturiser and apply to the entire face. Head to Toe Glow: Mix two to three pumps with your favourite body moisturiser.

My take on the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in “Moonstone”-
The highlighter comes in a sturdy transparent tube with a matte black cap & a pump. Though the pump is pretty user & travel friendly, I feel it dispenses too much of the product in one go & a lot of it is wasted. So I always pour some out in a smaller jar to use. Overall, sturdy & travel friendly.
The texture is medium thick & liquidy but quite lightweight & I haven’t had any problems with greasy/sticky residue even in very humid & hot weather so that’s fine! It blends like a dream on its own or mixed with any foundation, BB/CC cream & gives a subtle yet noticeable healthy glow to skin.
As a highlighter, I always finish off with this dotting it on my apples of cheeks, collar bones & other high points of face & it looks & feels so natural yet radiant.Its cousin in the pressed powder form on the other hand, gives a blinding highlighter look which I love on certain occasions but for regular wear or daytime looks, this subtle radiance is everything <3
The shade “Moonstone” is a pale gold, one of the earliest launched shades & a best-seller & it is easy to understand why. It works for all complexions & skin types & boosts radiance without appearing too loud or patchy or unnatural. I love the shade & might pick up the pressed powder form in the same.
It lasts on my skin really long in spite of being a liquid product and I was really impressed when I came back home after a long hectic day and still detected its traces <3 and plus, the shimmer did not migrate elsewhere!
It did not aggravate or break my sensitive skin out in any way & I am already through more than half my bottle.
Pros of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in “Moonstone”:

7> The shade “Moonstone” is a beautiful shimmering pale gold which always works.
Cons of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in “Moonstone”:
