The Best & Worst of Becca Light Chaser Highlighters & Liquid Crystal Glow Glosses

Becca Light Chaser Highlighter
Becca Light Chaser Highlighter

Becca Light Chaser Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a new, limited edition powder highlighter that is supposed to be “the perfect marriage of kaleidoscopic colour and light” that give the skin “an otherwordly glow.” There are six shades in the range, and a few of them have more of a visible shift in person (less so in photos) while others just seemed like a typical highlighter. From the brand that seemed to put highlighters back on the market with their Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formula, the formula lacked the finesse in texture and blendability I would have expected from Becca. The texture varied from shade to shade with some being drier, looser, and less blendable to smoother, more blendable, and fairly good as a tinted highlighter/subtle blush.

Becca Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a new, limited edition formula available in six shades. Becca describes it as “gemstones melted into liquid form” with a “mix of unique pearls” paired with a “conditioning” formula. In general, the formula was more like a sheer to semi-sheer gloss with moderate pearl, sometimes with more nuance and other times was more like a traditional, shimmery gloss. The formula was lightweight, thin, lightly tacky, and comfortable to wear but only lasted two to three hours. For most of the shades, I detected the scent throughout the wear but only tasted soapiness with one (Topaz x Gilt). The glosses were less shifting in their shimmer/pearl as they were just sparkly and mirror-like in shine.

My favorite shades: Opal Flashes Jade (Light Chaser Highlighter) and Topaz x Gilt (Glow Gloss).

Becca Topaz Flashes Gilt Light Chaser Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium gold with strong, warm orange undertones and shimmer that shifted from gold-to-green. The texture was soft to the touch and a little drier but not in a way that impeded application. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly and blended out without issue, though it emphasized my pores just slightly. This shade lasted for eight hours on me before fading.

The Light Chaser Highlighter formula is supposed to be “more than a highlighter” and have a combination of “kaleidoscopic color and light” that makes it “shift as you move.” There are six shades in the range, and a few of them have more of a visible shift in person (less so in photos) while others just seemed like a typical highlighter.

Becca Rose Quartz Flashes Seashell Light Chaser Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light pink with a luminous sheen and subtle, warm undertones. It had good color payoff with a soft, smooth consistency that wasn’t dry but did not seem as finely-milled as Becca’s more popular highlighting powder formula. This shade was a more subtle shade in the range (though I would classify it as a moderate highlighter in the grand scheme of all that is highlighting), as it did not have the high-shine finish, and it definitely did not have anything like a duochrome shift. This shade lasted for eight hours on me.

Becca Amethyst Flashes Geode Light Chaser Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium pink with warm undertones and cooler, lavender sparkle and pearl. This shade had larger sparkles that sat on the skin along with finer pearl that gave a more luminous sheen on the skin. The texture was chunky, dry, and had a tendency to appear patchy without a good deal of buffing. It emphasized my skin’s natural texture, though it was nowhere near as shiny as the brand’s original pressed highlighters. It had good pigmentation, though, and lasted for seven and a half hours on me. I did not detect much of a shift, more that it had a warmer, pink base with a cooler sheen but no real shift or duochrome-like appearance.

Becca Champagne Dream x Bellini Crystal Glow Gloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a peachy gold with warm undertones and flecks of gold, green, and pink pearl. This one was one of the more “shifting” shades in the range, as it sometimes appeared warmer and golder and pinker and peachier at other times. The base had a milky quality to it, so there was a bit of color that gathered in my lip lines, though the shiny, sparkly finish made this less noticeable from a normal viewing distance. It had semi-sheer color payoff that went on fairly evenly and lasted for two and a half hours. The formula was moisturizing while worn.

Becca describes the formula as a “mix of unique pearls blended together to create a multi-dimensional finish” with “nourishing ingredients that leave lips lavishly soft and smooth” and a “luxurious coconut and vanilla scent.” They can be worn alone or applied on top of other lip colors for shine/shimmer, but the brand did not seem to make any more specific claims with respect to pigmentation–given that they are supposed to be worn on top of products but could be worn alone, I am expecting semi-sheer to medium coverage.

In general, the formula is more like a sheer to semi-sheer gloss with moderate pearl, sometimes with more nuance and other times was more like a traditional, shimmery gloss. The formula was lightweight, thin, lightly tacky, and comfortable to wear but only lasted two to three hours. For most of the shades, I detected the scent throughout the wear but only tasted soapiness with one (Topaz x Gilt).

Becca Topaz x Gilt Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and multi-colored pearl (mostly violet, teal, and gold). It had semi-sheer pigmentation that applied evenly with a smooth, lightweight texture that just had a touch of tackiness to it. The gloss spread easily on my lips and sat well on them. It lasted for three hours and was hydrating.
