Giving-in to the hype - Becca Shimmering Skin perfector / pearl

I had been a little distracted by the sinking feeling and harsh realisation that Becca Cosmetics had been removed from the UK and that they're not being shipped here. I had long read about but evaded the Becca Shimmering skin perfecter only to desperately want it the minute it became unavailable to me! Cue Space NK to swoop in and save the day. As of last month Space NK exclusively sell Becca Cosmetics. Hooray!!

So here's yet another rave review of the cult liquid highlighter! If your yet to be swayed by the hundreds of reviews on the interweb, maybe I can persuade you to get on the band wagon too! This liquid highlighter not only contains ultra-fine mica to refelct light, making the skin appear healthy and glowing this wonder product also boasts an SPF of 25 plus to protect against 96% of UVA and UVB rays and contains anti-oxidant vitamins A, B, D and E to aid in tissue repair, increase collagen renewal and moisture holding capacity, while also protecting against pollution and free radical damage. Oh AND if that doesn't float your boat it also contains soothing, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic ingredients... (takes a breath) It comes in 4 shades to cater for all skin tones. It's 50ml and costs £33. WEBSITE LINK

First impressions are thus: this is a hearty little package. the rubber texturised bottle is sleek yet rather large at 50ml. You dispense the product using a pump. It's chic.. End of- packaging 10 out of 10!

Now onto the product - wow. That's it. wow! when I first swatched it on my hand I found that under artificial light it sparkled!! On the skin it gives a luminescent glow which lasts all day! I have also found that a little goes a very long way with this. If you apply too much it can give a white cast to the skin. It is absolutely stunning and the perfect highlighter! It's so easy to blend onto the skin too, no streakage or clumping at all.

I truly recommend this if your in the market for a new highlighter! This is pricey but well worth the investment! thankyou for stopping by. Please follow me on TWITTER and this blog on BLOGLOVIN for more :-) xoxoxo
