Light Seeker (2.5)
Becca Light Seeker (2.5) Light Shifter Dewing TintBecca Light Seeker (2.5) Light Shifter Dewing Tint ($30.00 for 1 oz.) is a light-medium, golden beige with warm undertones and a luminous sheen with faint pearl throughout. It had sheer coverage, as designed, that was sheerer when applied all-over or when mixed in with more moisturizer or a higher-coverage foundation. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage when applied as a standalone highlighter on the high points of the face.
The consistency was lightweight, more like a thin gel-cream, so it spread readily over my skin, which made it easy to use both all-over or patted onto my cheekbones. It took a few minutes to mostly dry down, so it wasn’t tacky but had a dewier finish with less overt pearl on its own. The product applied well over bare skin as well as patted on top of foundation as it wasn’t prone to lifting up my base. It stayed on well for eight and a half hours as a standalone highlighter and closer to nine hours well as a standalone product.

It's described as a 'sheer tinted moisturizer" so that the shades are "flexible" while giving an "ultra-dewy finish." When I saw the promotional video and read through the ingredient list, it was very much called to mind other tinted luminizing products, which are often more billed as luminizers than tinted moisturizers. I initially purchased the three shades that would be closer to my skin tone, in case it really was more tinted moisturizer than luminizer, but I'd definitely say these are tinted luminizers.
The brand states that it can be applied to the "high points" for "targeted radiance" or "all over the face for maximum dewiness." To wear it all-over would give a very high-shine, luminous finish that likely would be "too much" for some (though certainly perfect for some). I think it compared favorably against other luminizers that are designed to be applied as a highlighter, mixed in with moisturizer/foundation, or used all-over, like Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter (which has a thinner consistency and higher amount of pearl) or AURIC Glow Lust (which has a thicker consistency, more of a sheen than as dewy).
The consistency was like a lightweight gel-cream--not too runny but not too thick or too heavy, so it spread readily across the face for all-over coverage but could be patted on the high points of foundation (over bare skin or on top of foundation) without being prone to lifting it up.
The coverage was sheer to semi-sheer when I tried applying it all over my face, as it did spread quite well, and I was able to get more semi-sheer, buildable coverage when I patted it over the high points of my face with a fingertip. It was sheer when mixed in with base products, as anticipated. It is most flexible when using it mixed in with something, though, and you'll want to align more closely with undertone than strictly depth for all-over usage.
It wore for eight to nine hours before starting to look more worn and faded when used alone or as a standalone highlighter (on top of cheekbones, bare skin).
