Becca Champagne Gold Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is described as a “soft warm gold.” It’s a brightened, light-medium yellow gold with a frosted sheen and warm undertones. Dior Gold Shock (001) (LE, $80.00) is less sparkly, slightly darker, but it looks similar on. Cle de Peau Gold (12) (P, $55.00) is lighter. Giorgio Armani No. 04 (P, $59.00) is a liquid product, less shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The performance of this shade is consistent with the rest of the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powders. It had really good color payoff that was buildable, blendable, or easily applied as true-to-pan color, if desired. The texture of the powder was soft, almost creamy, and very smooth. This shade does run yellow, not just gold, and so it may not work as universally as some of the other shades. The only downside to Becca’s formula is that it is more frosted, so a little goes a long way and too much can emphasize pores. It’s one of those products where it’s better to build up to the desired luminosity level, but the good thing is that even if you feel like you’ve gone overboard, you can easily buff it back down to a soft, luminous sheen that gives skin a glow but doesn’t emphasize imperfections. I prefer using fan brushes with highlighters like these, as it is almost impossible to over-apply! On me, this highlighter wore well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

I can see it not being for everyone, but I like that it’s more of an add-on to their range, rather than “here’s all we got! make it work!”

I can easily see this being absolutely gorgeous on warm ebony skin tones! Seriously, finding really pale makep is a complaint that some more companies have finally started getting close to, affordably, but the search for those lovely darker skin colors must be frustrating! I can only hope that more options become available to all through less expensive and non- pro brands so that all are equally able to play. (A caveat of mine)

Yes, both ends of the spectrum are sometimes ignored, and who gets more ignored depends on the brand and type of products, I think (for foundation, I know very, very pale find it troublesome, but it seems like many brands forget medium-dark and beyond for foundation).

Exactly! The really beautiful woman of color.. Where are the affordable quality colors for them? Foundation, conealer, highlight… This is NOT a beige/tan world! I know that I, myself, don’t even fit into a “season,” or “sub-season,” so lippies and all makeup is an expensive task! Looking at pictures of GORGEOUS dark complexions, I realized they have to battle! To find a dark color is difficult, more so to match with undertone.. Racism makes me sick.

For women of deeper skin tones, Motives Cosmetics has started a line just dedicated to skin tones that are hard to match through mainstream brands. Darker skin tones with red undertones or blue undertones and such; they custom blend the shades to your needs.

Hi Christine! I observed that you always use the Les Violettes loose powder. i may have missed a review on this but, do you like this better than the compact? I have the compact… thanks a lot!

They’re interchangeable to me, though I probably like the compact a little more, but you get a lot more product with the loose.

I picked this up a few weeks ago, from Amazon.com . I have a very deep skin tone ( MAC Matchmaster 9.0 ), and this looks amazing on me. It gives my skin such a beautiful glow. Very complimentary for deeper skin tones. It may not work as well, for people with a fair complexion though. It’s a potent yellow gold color.

So happy to hear it working well for your deeper complexion! πŸ™‚ I was hoping it would be rockin’ for darker skin tones!

This is definitely a little to yellow for me, I think. I don’t own any of the Becca Highlighters but if I were to go for one, it would most likely be the Rose Gold. I’ll probably get one eventually because I’ve heard nothing but good things. This one does look nice on you, Christine!

That’s what I was told – it’s permanent but like Rose Gold, the pattern is LE. I’ll try to get confirmation again, though!

I really like this, but I’m concerned about just how yellow it really is! I didn’t know if that wore down from the top, leaving a more champagne like color? I’m lazy right now. How close is this to moonstone? I’m predicting a pressed Becca Shimmering skin Perfector palette!!! I love the color on your lips! An ethereal look πŸ™‚

I could see this as a summer makeup thing for me maybe. I think it would be to yellow on my light-medium skin now. Is it limited? I thought it was part of their holiday set. But, I don’t see that it is in your review. I agree with these being very intense. I own opal,moonstone, and rose gold. The rose gold, I am using as a blush or over a blush. They are lovely. I use a fan brush and still go very light with it. I am 39 though, and noticeable highlight that is powder emphasizes my fine lines I feel. Looks stunning on you as always!

I am hovering ultas’s website debating to pick this up and thought id look at your swatches again,lol..such an iffy shade for me..I was hoping more gold. I also noticed that I said I was 39 in that comment..ugh. I am 38! 39 is 4 months away! I can’t believe I aged myself here!..lol.

So.. .wound up ordering it . I had a 20% off coupon for Ulta.I rationalizd it as a “save for summer” or layer with a matte blush. Plus,Ulta is good with their return policy (if u have your receipt). Crossing my fingers it doesnt pull super yellow.:)

Please do!

I bought two of the soufflΓ©s based on your review this summer, and they are among my favorite products. I want to try more, but the Sephora closest to my house doesn’t carry it in stores, and I’m told that most do not. So more reviews and swatch pictures online are needed! Your reviews are the most informative and reliable, and there’s very little out there about this brand!

Oh…WOW that is yellow. It’s a proper buttercup! ^_^ Then I look and see the Giorgio Armani one in the dupe list, LOL! I think I’ll stick with Chanel’s holiday highlighter from this year for my ice queen face (if I can get a hold of it…), but I admit I’m curious how this would look on me.

I feel like I might end up looking like an extra from a ’60s sci-fi movie though…(not a bad thing, necessarily, depending on your mood!)… πŸ™‚

LOL! I think the Giorgio Armani shade is the yellowest I have seen, but it sheerer in general, so not nearly as yellow as one would expect.

at least your arm doesn’t look sickly:) i have the yellow armani maestro that i really like. i haven’t used it in a while, but i should. this becca one is pretty, but i think one super yellow highlighter is enough for me.

I have Becca’s liquid version in Champagne Gold, and while it looks very yellow in the tube, it applies much sheerer and less yellow – it gives a beautiful slightly pearly glow on fair skin.

This post completely enabled me to buy 2 highlighters yesterday; however, neither were the Becca one. πŸ™‚ I got the Chanel and Cle De Peau dupes. The Chanel one was available on eBay. I had eyed the CDP one when you posted it first, but rationalized that I didn’t need another highlighter. I think Gold will look better on my complexion then the sea of silvery shimmer I have. The Chanel one may just be one I look at- similiar to the lace pattern one I have and have used 3 times so I don’t disturb the lace.
