i'm excited to share Becca Prismatic Amethyst Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter with you all! i ordered this bad boy as soon as it was available to me :D i adore powder highlighters, and this gorgeous limited edition one from Becca just had to be mine.
the packaging is absolutely delicious. a holographic purple box which contains the compact... which instead of traditional black Becca packaging, is shiny purple!
the product within the compact is a light shimmery purple/pink color with a textured pyramid designed imprinted... just so yummy!
despite being called Prismatic Amethyst, this highlighter leans more pink than purple. it is sheer yet buildable enough that you can go from a slight glow to a blinding, in your face, gleam. some people have described it as chalky... i don't find it to be that way, but it does kick up a lot of powder. however, all of my Becca highlighters kick up the same way... so i wasn't surprised, and while i would prefer they didn't, it doesn't bother me that much.
here's a look at it on my skin... it is SO difficult to photograph!
and here's one of the looks i used it for :) it's just so gorgeous! i love that's it's just a little different... not so out there that you feel you can't wear it on the daily, but enough that gives you special little edge. i personally always want my highlighter to walk into the room before i do, so i love all the shine on this baby!
Becca Prismatic Amethyst Shimmering Skin Perfector retails for $38. you can get it at Sephora, Sephora.com, and BeccaCosmetics.com. i buy all my Becca from Sephora.com because of their $10 Flash Shipping, free samples, and eBates! however, there is an offer that comes up on Becca's website currently for you to save 20% off your first order if you sign up for their email... that's $7.60 off Prismatic Amethyst :D
what do you think of this purple highlighter? is it something you must have... or already grabbed? let me know!
Happy Tuesday! Ria :)
