A few months back I won £350 to spend on FarFetch.com and picked up these three Becca Powder Highlighters that I knew I would needed to try as I am on a huge highlighter kick at the moment! I chose Rose Gold, Opal and Moonstone. I decided on the powder versions over the cream or liquid as I like to powder my face and find that powder highlights work best for me on top of my other make up. 

I have never had anything from Becca before but I really like the minimal packaging, it's classy and looks expensive (hello, it is!) so it took me a while to actually throw the boxes out, I kept putting the highlighters back into their boxes after I used them until I got bored of this and made myself throw them away! 

Rose Gold

This is Rose Gold which as the name suggests is a rosey golden highlighter perfect for accenting bronzed skin or using as a light blush on the cheekbones, I'll admit this is the one I reach for the least being super pale it isn't a powder for all occasions but it is so gorgeous and sometimes I just open it to have a look at it! It has a really creamy formula that doesn't have any fallout and blends onto the skin just beautifully.


Opal is the perfect shade and glow for my skin tone, it looks gorgeous above my peach blusher and really highlights my face without me looking like a disco ball, the formula of this is a little more hard then the Rose Gold one and does create a little fallout so a gentle hand is best when applying!


I would describe moonstone as a low level highlight, it's more of a matte highlight if that makes any sense, it still gives a really nice glow to the skin but it isn't a IN YOUR FACE glow that makes it obvious. It just lightens up the face and blends into my fair skin so well.

As you can see they are just gorgeous and together all three of these offer me a highlight for any occasion! I tend to mix my highlighters when using so I like to use Opal and then my MAC Soft & gentle on top to create a sort of mid way tone between a blush and highlight.

Finally, what you've been waiting for, the swatches! As you can see they are really creamy, pack a real pigment (these are one swipe) but obviously it's more of a sheer application when you use a brush! If I had to choose just ONE of these two own I would say Opal as it's an in between shade of the other two.

Swatching these onto my arm you can see which look best with my skin tone, I have to say I think all three of these would suit any skin tone depending on how much you apply and what kind of effect you like to have with your highlight! I am so so in love with these and would recommend picking one up if you can afford one or asking for one for Christmas if you love highlights!! You can pick them up here for £32 each
