Light Waves

Becca Light Waves Highlighter Palette ($34.00 for 0.27 oz.) includes three highlighters–two we’ve seen before and one new to the palette (Pink Sapphire)–housed in a slim, plastic palette. I found the quality of the three shades to be fairly good with the two previously-released shades performing on par with the full-sized versions I have, while the weakest shade was the new shade, Pink Sapphire, as it wasn’t quite as pigmented as the other shades but built up and applied well that I imagine most won’t have any issues with it.

Moonstone

Moonstone is a soft, yellowed gold with warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had opaque pigmentation with a smooth, blendable consistency that was easy to apply and to blend out on the skin. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly. The texture was just slightly less creamy compared to the full-sized product I have.

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.

Pink Sapphire

Pink Sapphire is a medium, peachy coral with warm undertones and a peach-to-pink shifting sheen. It looked more pink-toned when applied to my skin at most angles but could look warmer and more of a peach-copper coloring at times. The consistency was soft, slightly more loosely pressed in the pan, and it wasn’t as pigmented as most of the shades in the formula. The pigmentation was buildable on the skin, and it blended out without issue. It wore well for eight hours on me.

Prismatic Amethyst

Prismatic Amethyst is a bright, pink-titned white with a metallic sheen. It had a subtle, iridescent sheen to it that made it shift from pink to lavender. The consistency was soft, smooth, and silky and was in line to the full-sized product. The highlighter had opaque color coverage that applied evenly to bare skin, blended out well, and did not accentuate my skin’s natural texture. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.
