This is a liquid highlighter that comes in a bottle with a pump, which tends to pump out at least as much as you’d need to mix in with a base product (foundation, moisturizer, primer, etc.), so you’ll want to have a smaller sample jar on hand for excess if you plan to use it for spot highlighting. The liquid version of Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfectors is designed to be sheer, and it is just that–sheer–though this one is naturally darker and will give a little color to the skin for fair to medium skin tones. When mixed in, I get a very, very subtle glow and warmth, but it doesn’t add really noticeable color–it’s not as if I used self-tanner, so if the darkness of the color has made you wary of mixing it with a base product, it might surprise you. The texture is lightweight, thin and almost watery (not in a bad way), which is easily spread across the skin without lifting base products, if you prefer to apply on top of other products. On its own, it wears for seven and a half hours, and when I mixed it, it didn’t interfere with the longevity of the base product.
