Product Type

This is a shimmery luminizer meant to be used all over the face or as a highlighter.

Shade

This holiday compact comes in a limited edition rose gold shade. This will appear different on different complexions in my opinion.

Colors like this tend to melt into my beige skin.

On the Face

As I mentioned above, I think this will have a different effect on different complexions! As I have a cool-neutral beige complexion, this adds a warm glow that is super flattering--BECCA does this effect well. For someone fairer, the actual color of this shade will probably be a bit more pronounced. As its name suggests, this does have a shimmery finish. It's not chunky or "glittery", but there is noticeable shimmer. I didn't find it over-emphasized skin texture or pores on my face. I liked using this on my cheekbones layered over my blush and on my forehead and the bridge of my nose as a highlighter. 

I've taken a few face shots so you can see how nicely it worked over my blush, adding a warm glow to my cheeks and the parts of my face I chose to use it to highlight.

Shimmer Skin Perfector Pressed Compact Size vs. BECCA Mineral Blush

If you're a fan of BECCA, you may already own one of my favorite products they produce--their mineral blushes! I previously reviewed one HERE in fact--so lovely, try them if you haven't already. The Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed compacts are significantly larger than the mineral blushes. I've taken a comparison shot for you so you can see for yourself! Given that one is a cheek product and one is technically a face product, it's nice that the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed's come in a larger compact.

My Thoughts

This is a beautiful face product that creates such a lovely, warm glow! As you can see above, it results in a "lit from within" effect that complements skin rather than emphasizing pores and skin texture  I love this type of effect in the winter--makes me think of chilly days and flushed cheeks from cozy fires or hot cider! That contrast of cold and hot is perfection to me in the cold months. I definitely recommend grabbing this while it's available because it's so pretty and perfect for winter or summer--yay versatility!

What do you think? Have you tried any of BECCA's Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed products? Will you be grabbing this one?
