Review/First Impressions: Becca x Jaclyn Hill Shimmering Skin Perfector

I have always been a bronzer girl for as long as I could remember but despite my obsession with face products, I never really thought about highlighters. After viewing countless of videos of highlighters and glowy skin, I still never really thought to apply it to my own face. For my sisters birthday, I had asked her about what she may have wanted as a gift and she said she really wanted the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Pressed Powder in Champagne Pop. I have actually heard of this brand before with their other shades (Moonstone etc) but when this particular shade actually arrived in the mail, I knew it was love at first sight. I quickly went online and ordered myself one and today I will be doing a little mini review/ first impressions!

The powder itself resembles a very fine shimmer shadow and is very pigmented. The swatch shown below is what it looks like on my skin, so you can truly see how pigmented it is. Of course if you are uncomfortable with its pigmentation, a fluffy brush or fan brush will easily blend it on the skin just as easily as it can be built up. The color is a very pale rose gold, so it tends to suit either tanned or olive complexions (feel free to wear it otherwise!). 

For the wear test, I decided I would try it for a full day at work to test its longevity on my cheek bones, nose and above my eyebrows. After around 3-4 hours I did notice a few shimmer bits around my arms and neck but nothing too messy. Around 5-6 hours later, the shimmer did lose its opacity, so I definitely needed to reapply. Overall, I have to say... I love this highlighter. It is buildable, and this particular shade is just so flattering on my olive skin that I can see myself using this on a regular basis. If you guys have been considering trying out Becca Pressed Powders, DO IT!

Overal Score: 9/10
