Acceptance

Becca Acceptance Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter ($38.00 for 1.5 oz.) is a pale pink with strong, warm undertones and fine pearl throughout that gave it a lightly dewy, luminous sheen with a slight twinkle in the sunlight. It was highly reflective while also being shimmery but not glittery or as textured as a more intense, powder highlight might be.

A little went a long way, so it was quite pigmented work with, and I’d recommend gently tapping (rather than pressing down for a full pump of product) to get a bit of product to expel for application to the face. For body, one pump or more would be totally fine! The texture was smooth, lightweight, and fluid with more of a gel-like feel as it spread well across my skin. I applied using fingertips as well as a stippling brush for the face, and I didn’t have any issues with either method.

It didn’t fully dry down on my skin applied to face, so it wasn’t as transfer-resistant as it claimed, and if worked into and spread out on arms or legs, it did seem to absorb and dry down there but a bit of shimmer could be lifted away. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me with minimal movement/migration.

Formula Overview

$38.00/1.5 oz. - $25.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "super concentrated" glow that can be used on "face and body" with a "crystal-gel" texture that is "transfer and water resistant." The key is knowing it is a very pigmented, high-shine, and glowing liquid highlighter, and they might suggest "one pump" for highlighting the face, I'm here to tell you to barely tap to expel a fraction of a pump. I think one pump would be more product than most need for the face alone.

The coverage can sheer out to more semi-sheer to medium if applied with a stippling brush and more medium to semi-opaque coverage if applied with a fingertip, but the product applied evenly to bare skin as well as over liquid foundation as it didn't lift it up. The texture was fluid and smooth--definitely like a lightweight gel--that was easy to work with.

The formula wore well for eight to nine hours on the high points of my face as a highlighter with minimal movement/fading, but I didn't feel like it fully dried down when I used it as a cheek highlighter. As a body highlighter, it was easier to work it over a larger area and feel the product dry down, but there was still a bit of transfer if I pressed my fingertip to my arm but resistant enough that it didn't immediately come off on clothes.

It has a heavier scent that smelled of sweet coconut, a hint of pineapple with a floral undercurrent. The scent is noticeable when applied, whether on body or on face, and it lingers, so it is fairly potent. As long as the scent isn't a deal-breaker, it is a gorgeous take on liquid highlighter if you like a high-shine, glowing finish that has finer pearl.

As a note: This is really not comparable--other than it also being in the liquid highlighter category--to the now-discontinued Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid. The Ignite formula is significantly more pigmented and more intense in its glow/shine/shimmer effect.

I love that we’re getting some warm pink highlights on the market… for the longest time it seemed like all pink highlights were iridescent (i.e. PMGL pink highlight) or had a cool, almost lavender undertone.
