Becca Hyawatha Loose Shimmer Powder
The Everywhere Highlighter
Becca Hyawatha Loose Shimmer Powder ($20.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a beautiful candlelit nude — it’s just a slight warmth, golden tone, but it’s not actually gold. It has an ultra smooth, ridiculously fine-milled texture; it feels like silk when pressed against skin. It even seems to adhere just fine without any sort of liquid or adhesive-based product (like Mixing Medium) when used as a highlighter. The fine texture makes it easy to mix in with your foundation or moisturizer for a quick and easy all-over glow.
Each jar packs a lot of product, too — so many brands do loose powders/pigments, but they’re usually less than 0.10 oz. (more like 0.05 oz.!), and Becca stampedes in with a hefty 0.15 oz. Like many loose colors, a little goes a long way, so it doesn’t take much to get that effortless glow. I didn’t see this product on Becca’s website at the moment (I bought mine during a HauteLook sale), but it’s readily available at other e-tailers like Dermstore and Glow.

RECOMMENDATION: For a beautiful, all-over glow that’s never frosty or shimmery but just that lit-from-within kind of look, Hyawatha does an excellent job.
