BECCA Afterglow Palette

Becca Afterglow palette

The BECCA Afterglow palette is my first venture into the brand and into the world of highlighters. Purchasing a highlighter has been a long time coming but I could never find the correct shade with the right amount of shimmer.
This palette comes with the Shimmering Skin Perfectors in Moonstone (a pale champagne), Rose Gold (a wearable pink toned gold) and Topaz (a bronze with a strong gold sheen), and their Mineral Blushes in Wild Honey (a nude brown) and Flowerchild (a peachy pink with gold shimmer - comparable to NARS Orgasm). These all lean towards the warmer side with the gold undertones. 
On my winter skin Moonstone is the perfect highlight and I like to layer Rose gold on top of or underneath blush. Topaz is currently to dark and warm for me but I'm thinking of using it as eyeshadow. Both blushes will have to wait until summer before I'll reach for them more often.
As this is my first purchase from the brand I can't compare these to the full-sized standalone highlighters and blushes. Recording to research they are tad bit drier which makes them a bit more forgiving and less intense on first swipe. However the colour payoff is great , they're smooth and blendable. The application is a bit tricky as the pans are the size of regular eyeshadows so you won't be able to use them with a big fluffy brush.
Overall I'm really impressed with this little palette, from the packaging to the colours and the formula, this works for me. I think I found my perfect highlighter in Becca's Moonstone!

  3. I didn't use highlighters for ages but now they are part of my makeup routine :)

  4. I don't really use highlighter daily, and still think it's an optional. But mine is the one from Innisfree called Face Designing Duo. I'd love to try Western brands as well.

    1. Highlighters aren't part of my everyday routine either but they're fun to play with for "special" occasions :) x
