Becca Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a pop of peachy gold with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had a smooth, blendable texture that wasn’t too soft nor too firmly pressed in the pan, though I have found that Becca’s formula is less cream-like and a little drier to the touch over time. The difference is more in texture/by feel and doesn’t seem to impact the actual application, as the product applied evenly, blended out without trouble, and had a luminous finish that didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It had opaque pigmentation, but the drier texture actually made it easier to pick up less product by using a lighter hand. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me.
(This isn’t new; it’s in special edition packaging, and I decided to re-review due to slight formula variations over the years and to get more updated swatches as it is such a popular shade.)

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.
