Review: BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured in "Moonstone"

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured in "Moonstone"

I think it's safe to say that when it comes to highlighting products, BECCA reigns supreme. Their pressed powder highlighters are always a must-have amongst makeup lovers for their high shine and almost metallic finish.

I was able to get my hands on the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured in the shade "Moonstone". This retails for $38 (0.19 oz) and is available in-store and online at Ulta, Sephora, and the BECCA Website.

Let's get in to the review!

BECCA claims this product is:

"A pigment-rich, creamy highlighter that provides high color payoff with soft, sophisticated shimmer...This rich cream formula features multi-toned, ultrafine pigment pearls that adjust to your skin’s natural undertones, accentuating the high points of the face with sophisticated shimmer. Liquid hydrators create a smooth, creamy finish, bringing light and lift to your best features."

The product comes in a sturdy disc shaped compact, complete with a mirror inside. Perfect for storage and travel.

The Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured is available in 5 shades. "Moonstone" is a pale champagne gold, it is the second to lightest shade. This shade is ideal for fair to light skin tones with neutral to yellow undertones. For those with fair and pink undertones, go for the shade "Pearl".

The product.

The texture of this product can best be described as a pressed creme. It softens to the touch of a finger or brush, which makes it ideal for applying it directly where you want it.

The finish.

This particular shade has a beautiful shimmery finish. It does not have chunks of glittery or shimmer. It leaves a beautiful natural looking glow, almost wet looking appearance to the skin.

If you're familiar with their Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed, the finish is not as high shine or intense, and needs to be built up to achieve a noticeable glow. Perfect for those who prefer a more natural looking highlight.


Once applied to the skin, whether on top of a liquid or powder foundation, I found that this wore well for over 9 hours without any fading or patchiness. It looks even better paired with power highlighter on top.

I found the best way to apply with product is with the fingers to get a more even application and the most pigmentation. It takes a little work to get the product to melt into the skin, but nothing too difficult or hard to work with.

The product has no noticeable scent and did not cause any breakouts or irritations to my skin. And if you have enlarged pores or uneven texture on your face, I didn't find this product emphasized those problems.

Overall, I think this product has excellent staying power, can be used for all skin types, and has a good color selection for all skin tones. If you like a natural looking highlight, this is perfect on its own, however, if you like a more dramatic highlight, this product on it's own probably won't be enough pigmentation for you, so it's great for layering with a powder highlighter for a more dramatic effect.
