Today I thought I’d have a chat about the #1 lusted after highlighter of the season. The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed. I got the shade Moonstone because I thought that would best suit my skin tone. From what I have read about the shades I think I was right. I know Champagne Pop went a bit nuts because it’s a collaboration with Jaclyn Hill but I don’t think it would have worked for me.
The Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector (BSSP I’m going to call it from now on so I don’t have to type all of that out each time) is rather pricey. At around $46 NZ from RY.com.au it’s not something you’d buy impulsively. So I thought I’d be the test dummy today (well, that’s what I told my partner) and let you know if YOU should buy it! Sounds good? Okay let’s go.
Bear with me while I contain my excitement… you know I’m obsessed with highlighters and this palette really takes the cake. Rose gold packaging, a purple shade, super pigmented, cheap… can we just take a minute to bask in it’s glory?
Okay, I’ve pulled myself together – let’s chat!
Strobing is something I am a complete amateur towards and to be honest I’m still sort of getting my head around contouring. Isn’t strobing just highlighting as per usual? Apparently not.
The way I see it, strobing is like excess highlighting. “Bulk” highlighting as Crystal Conte might put it. This palette literally does make ‘strobing’ ultra easy. I know that sounds cheesy and hopefully I didn’t put you off with that cliched, cheesy title. However I’m only being honest!
Uh, yes. Another haul. Erm, I hope you like hauls… this is not the end of them. Apologies in advance, but I just. love. shopping! Is that such a sin? Well, my boyfriend might tell you so… but I like to think otherwise. I call it ‘investing towards my collection’. Let’s go with that eh?
Oh. My. Goodness. Inside this post you’re going to find swatches galore, dupes, photos, love, raving, and awesome packaging. A few weeks ago my lovely, amazing friend xlivlovesmakeup from YouTube (Check her out if you haven’t already!) stayed up late and ordered us these goodies from Mac. I was poor that week unfortunately so I was only able to pick up these two lipsticks, but I am in LOVE. Continue reading →
