Apres Ski Glow

Becca Apres Ski Glow Glow Face Palette ($54.00 for 0.54 oz.) contains two blushes, one bronzer, and three highlighters. Two shades–Icicle and Winter Berry–are new and exclusive to the palette, while the rest are available individually. I do not think that the quality of the powders in the palette is the same as the full-sized range; some perform worse but they felt different: drier, more papery. It’s always a shame when a brand changes up their formulas when they put them in a palette for the worse.

Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz is a light pink with warm undertones and a frosted finish. The highlighter had good color payoff, though it was not quite opaque, that was blendable on the skin. The consistency was slightly drier than the full-sized version and the shimmer particles seemed larger overall. Luckily, it did not seem to accentuate my skin’s natural texture once applied, even at heavier coverage levels. This shade stayed on well for eight hours.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.25 oz. - $152.00 Per Ounce

The Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formula is described as having an "ultra-reflective shine" with a "creamy" texture that "applies seamlessly." In general, the texture of the highlighters is incredibly smooth, silky, and finely-milled with frosted to metallic finishes and the occasional more sparkly finish.

They tend to have a high-shine, more metallic finish and are a stronger highlighter, so they are going to be best suited to someone who likes an obvious highlight over a very subtle one. That being said, with a fan brush and a deft hand, one could certainly achieve a subtler, all-over luminosity as well, but if one takes a typical, tapered highlighting brush, there will be quite a bit of pigment and highlight on the skin.

I find that some shades can emphasize the look of pores slightly to moderately, depending on application. They tend to last between eight to nine hours on me.

Icicle

Icicle is a pale, bluish white with cool undertones and a frosted sheen. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly to the skin, though the shimmer particles seemed larger than normal for the brand’s highlighter formula, so it emphasized my skin’s natural texture quickly (even at medium coverage). The powder was drier and thinner, so it took a heavier hand/denser brush to achieve good coverage with a brush. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Winter Berry

Winter Berry is a medium-dark, pink-coral with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had a dry, grainy texture that was almost gritty–it was just bizarre for a powder product and completely unacceptable at this price point. It felt almost like sandpaper to me. It had medium, buildable color payoff that took extra effort to buff and blend out on the skin, and it never was totally even. The blush lasted for seven hours on me.

Blushed Copper

Blushed Copper is a dark, coppery brown with warm,r ed undertones and a luminous sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth texture that was blendable and easy to work with–it was one of the better shades in the palette with respect to texture. The blush lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.2 oz. - $170.00 Per Ounce

This formula is supposed to have “just the right balance of color and light” that can be worn alone or “as a blush topper.” It seemed like it is supposed to be somewhere between sheerer like a highlighter and more pigmented like a blush (hence why it can also be layered), which is the best I can surmise from their marketing (there’s a lot of use of subtle as well, which at least indicates, to me, that they’re not saying it’s ultra pigmented).

I noticed that layering is best with a very, very light hand and a feathery brush or else the original blush can get overshadowed, as the formula runs semi-opaque. Much like the Shimmering Skin Perfectors, a little can go a long way. Most of the shades I tested lasted around eight hours on me.

Opal

Opal is a muted, medium gold with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The highlighter was richly pigmented with a soft, drier texture that was nowhere near as cream-like as the full-sized version. I felt like the color and look of the product on the skin was more comparable, but the texture was noticeably different. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

Bronzed Bondi

Bronzed Bondi is a medium-dark brown with subtle, warmer red undertones and flecks of gold pearl. The consistency was drier, almost papery, as it was thin and prone to sheering out when applied. It had good pigmentation that blended out with ease but was hard to keep at full coverage due to the drier texture. It did not sit as well on the skin as the best of powder bronzers would. It lasted for eight hours, so at least there was that, but it was far worse in texture compared to the full-sized version (which was only decent).

Winter Berry was the one shade I was excited to see. Looks like I’ll be shopping for dupes instead. Becca quality is so inconsistent lately and I never know what to think about them!

Wow, what a disappointment! I’m glad I had already decided to skip because of the heavy duplication of permanent shades. Becca is not on their game this holiday season 🙁

Argh, I ordered this one after days of hesitation. That’s why I should never buy anything without waiting for your reviews first! Oh well, I guess I can always return it if I have the same experience…

Fingers crossed! It’s arriving Tuesday, I’ll be sure to update you in this week’s Free for Haul.
I know you weren’t a fan of Becca’s Light Chaser formula but the one shade I have works well for me, so there’s hope that I’m easier to please than you when it comes to highlighters, lol! The blush concerns me though. I can’t deal with a patchy blush…

Thank you for the review! I’ve been eyeing this palette for a while, as I’m in the market for new highlighter, blush, and bronzer. I was very hesitant about purchasing this palette after the terrible apres ski eyeshadow palette review, and I’m glad I waited until your review came out. Becca seems like one of the best highlighter brands, so seeing such dismal marks on their holiday palette is very disenchanting.

I actually had much higher hopes for this palette based on IG pics, but it seriously let me down once I got to see these real-life swatches. That’s the one thing I’m not crazy about when it comes to IG. Pics brands post or TM or HFMU post can be altered heavily in favor of the product in a somewhat deceptive way. That’s why I almost always wait for your pics.

At first, it was really cool to see brands post swatches, since they often did it on three skin tones, but the focus seems to be more on “pretty” swatches – e.g. how can we make them look 150% pigmented and perfect… not necessarily accurate.

I agree with you Christine, when a brand changes its formula for the worse to create a palette. Becca, who has built its reputation as been the highlighting queen, has begun to lose its integrity. None of these shades are orginial in the least.

I swatched this at big S on Saturday while I was there to try and get properly colour matched for foundation. It looked so pretty, but I wasn’t impressed with texture; felt a number of shades were very stuff with minimal payoff. I took a pass. It also gave me an opportunity to see the Fenty colour collection in person.. I ended up buying a different foundation (Fabulous Mua found my match! EL DW in 1N2 ecru) and the eyeshadow palette isn’t my speed. I escaped relatively unscathed.

This makes me want to cry. This was the one holiday release I was most excited about. Is winter berry completely unsalvageable? I don’t see a picture of it on your cheeks unless I am missing it somehow.

I’m disappointed to see that the formulas aren’t up to Becca’s usual standard…but this review just made my way too long a wish list a bit shorter, so my bank account thanks you! 😉

I am so bummed about the review. Don’t own any becca highlighters/blushes so I was hoping this would be a high quality product (esp for the price point). I hope the gradient glow highlighter is better quality – can’t wait to read your review on it!

The Winter Berry caught my eyes I really liked the color. I was planning to buy this in store. I looked at it again on the Canadian Sephora website and I showed my husband the picture of the palette. First thing he said was this palette is not worth $65 (Canadian) I think you have similar colors in your collections and I don’t see you using this palette at all it be a waste of money. I usually get my husband opinion on collections that are coming out and he is really honest with me he will tell if I’m going to use it or not

Winter Berry doesn’t look like it should be a difficult shade to get right. It sounds so weird and looks so awful. I’m loving the Icicle highlighter, though. I wouldn’t wear half the products in this palette, so I’ll skip.

This is actually the first time I am disagreeing with you about this review. I don’t know if you got a bad palette, but mine was beautiful and was very similar to their pressed highlighter formula. Winter Berry is similar to their other palettes they made in the past but I didn’t have a hard time getting mine to work at all, it performed just like their other blushes. There was no sandpaper like feel that you described with mine. This is actually my favorite holiday palette this season! No hate, I definitely appreciate the time you take to make these reviews. Just disagreeing with you on this one. I definitely don’t like the inconsistency of their holiday/collaboration palettes from one to the next. I have been lucky to get ones that perform very well.
