So you can easily carry it around in your bag without having to worry about opening and shimmering your bag instead of your face. They also have mirror inside which makes it easy to use while travelling. These highlighters come in 2 sizes. One is the original 0.28 oz or 8 g packaging. Other is a smaller 0.08 oz or 2.4 grams. However the smaller size isn’t available for purchase separately. It usually comes as part of a set with the matching liquid Becca Highlighter. This set is available for USD $ 20.00
Formula, Texture, Pigmentation
My love for highlighters is little over the top therefore, I was so excited to get my hands on it. When I swatched it on my inner wrist, it immediately blended with my skin tone. I couldn’t have been happier. As the name suggest it has micro shimmering granules which gives beautiful glow when worn on cheeks and chin. Texture wise it is creamy and powdery so it stays put on your face for good 5-6 hours and does not fall off at all. The shade “Opal” is described as a golden opal pearl. It has the slightest bit of a champagne rosy undertone and blends in effortlessly.

Cons of Becca Opal Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter
I don’t usually prefer to wear it during day time.
1. I believe this colour Opal is more suitable for Indian skin tones rather Amethyst which has purplish tones. I guess going off shelves has worked in my favour and I am very happy with my purchase.
2. For a more blinding highlight effect, use a liquid highlighter base and top it up with a powder/pressed highlight.
3. Always keep it tightly shut because this would prevent the product from drying out.
4. In fact, if you’re not sure about spending USD $ 38.00, you can always go for the $ 20.00 set which comes with a liquid highlighter as well.
