While browsing Sephora last month, I noticed this set from BECCA Cosmetics. The kit contains a mini powder compact and liquid highlight in the shade Opal. The colour in this kit is a “golden opal pearl”.
Both products come together in a cardboard box. The compact has the word “BECCA” stamped on the cover and features a small mirror inside. The liquid highlight is in a tube, like a lipgloss. It has a doe-foot applicator.
The compact version of opal is a pressed powder. It is soft and smooth to the touch. One swipe of the compact dispenses a lot of product onto a brush. I find a light touch or pat works best when applying the product to a finger or brush. The colour is a champagne-gold.
The Liquid Highlight
I have not tried a liquid highlight before this product. To my delight, it did not feel wet or sticky on the skin. When applied to the skin, the product has a slight cooling effect. It dries down within a few seconds. I blend the liquid highlight into my skin after I apply it to evenly distribute the product. A small amount of product goes a long way.
I like the colour in this set. It will be a perfect option for summer – a subtle, shimmery highlight. The travel-sized kit is ideal. Other highlighters I own are full-sized, and are more difficult to pack into my makeup kit.
This kit retails for $20 at Sephora.
Have you tried BECCA products before? Thoughts?
