Achieve a subtle luminosity. This formula features ultrafine light-reflecting pearls that melt into your skin for polished, natural-looking radiance. Water-light and sheer, it has a prismatic effect that allows it to adjust in any light, so your refined glow is never lost. This product has been dermatologically tested.

This product may be used on the face and body. To highlight the face, dab a small amount over foundation using your fingertips or brush to cheekbones, brow bones, temples, bridge of the nose, and cupid's bow. When highlighting the body, apply to dècolletage, shoulders, and legs.

Spotlighting: After applying makeup, dab a small amount, onto cheek and brow bones.

For a luminescent base: Before applying primer, use Shimmering Skin Perfector as a base over the entire face using fingertips or a brush. Follow with Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation and add a touch of Radiant Skin Creamy Concealer where needed.

For an all-over inner glow: Mix half a pump of Shimmering Skin Perfector with Radiant Skin Satin Finish Foundation or your favorite moisturizer and apply to the entire face.

For a head-to-toe glow: Mix two to three pumps with your favorite body moisturizer.

        I'm African American with oily skin and this stuff is awesome! This is my second bottle, I have the Opal, Rose Gold and I just purchased the primer! I love Becca products, they don't add to my oiliness, it gives me a nice glow and doesn't cause me to break out. I have purchased several of their blushes as well.

          This was my first Becca product. I found it by accident in the middle aisle of the store. Gives your skin an unbelievably naturally radiant glow! I've used under foundation, mixed with foundation, and also over foundation as a highlight. Each application gives a different type of coverage or dewy look without being super shiny or glittery. I've branched out to several Becca products since purchasing this!

          I use this product daily to highlight my cheek bones and space above my lip. It goes on very smoothly and blends well with my ring fingers.

          I do not care for the change in packaging with this product. I was used to squeezing it out of the tube and only use a minimal amount. Switching to the pump, it dispenses more product than I need.

            Comments about BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector:

            I used to love these liquid highlighters from Becca, that is until I found out that they ARE NOT paraben free and may be the cause for my skin irritation. I don't know if they reformulated the product since last year, but from what I can find, that's not the case. I guess it's a very minimal amount of the ingredient that is in the product because I didn't notice it until consistent use. Since I rotate my makeup pretty regularly, my skin didn't break out in a rash, especially since I didn't put much of it on and it was mainly mixed in with the foundation rather than put directly on my skin. Still, I noticed way more texture when I decided to put an entire pump to the foundation mix to lighten the tone since it was too dark for me. I thought it was the foundation, but I've had that foundation (UD Naked Skin) for a while and never had that issue before. So when I went online to check the ingredients to my beloved Becca liquid highlighter, I noticed it did in fact have parabens! I was so surprised since I remember purchasing for the reason that it DIDN'T have parabens. So either the ULTA site hadn't noted it or my eyes skimmed right past it.

            While this leaves a beautiful glow to the skin, I don't think oily people would like this so much as it can easily make you look greasy. You only need a small dime-size for both cheeks as a cheek highlighter, and it does seem to set on it's own, at least on my skin, which is combo/dry. The only reason I'll be giving this away is because of the fact that I am allergic to the product. Sorry for the long rant on my disappointment, but it's important to note that you should always look at the ingredients carefully and if you notice irritation happening to your skin, make sure to check the ingredient list to your makeup and skincare products to rule out an allergic reaction - these can happen after years of using these products on a regular basis, so be careful.

                  • Q:

                    What is the difference between this product, Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector, and Becca's Backlight Priming Filter? I'm looking for a nice, luminous primer/product for my skin that I can apply either prior to my makeup application or to mix into my foundation. I really love Becca products but I'm a bit confused between the difference each product serves or if both products would be beneficial for what I'm looking for.
                    Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

                      The Shimmering Skin Perfector is a liquid highlighter which can be used to help add illumination to the face, and can be worn over top, underneath, or mixed with your foundation. Our Backlight Priming Filter is more of a primer with just a hint of luminosity, to help prep the skin for makeup application. if you are looking for something that will give you a glow and is more multi use, the the Shimmering Skin Perfector is the product for you!

                      You can most definitely use our Shimmering Skin Perfector as a base for your makeup routine! Because it has a great liquid texture and natural luminosity, it will give your skin a boost of radiance while priming the skin, which is a great step to begin your makeup routine.

                      A:

                      Shimmering Skin Perfector can be used under powder or over.

                      When used under powder, it will give a diffused, "backlit" look to the skin.

                      To use over powder, apply a small amount onto The One Perfecting Brush (Item #: 2276704) and lightly brush onto the high areas of the face, such as the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, brow bones, and cupid's bow.
