Love

Becca Love Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter ($38.00 for 1.5 oz.) seemed to have a translucent base with flecks of iridescent sparkle and micro-glitter that flashed blue, pink, and lavender. This was the most glittery in texture of the new formula, so those who loathe visible sparkle will want to skip along. The texture was consistent with my past experience: lightweight, like a gel-cream, which ensured spreadability, so it worked well on bare skin as well as over foundation.

The big difference is this was a lot less pigmented, but thankfully (!!!), Becca described it as a “translucent base” with “multi-colored pearls that sparkle,” which was extremely accurate. I’d still recommend gently tapping the pump to depress less than one full pump if using as a face highlighter, while one or two pumps is a good amount for highlighting body parts. It didn’t have quite as much of a sheen as it did a twinkle compared to other shades in the range, which were more intense in their glow. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$38.00/1.5 oz. - $25.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "super concentrated" glow that can be used on "face and body" with a "crystal-gel" texture that is "transfer and water resistant." The key is knowing it is a very pigmented, high-shine, and glowing liquid highlighter, and they might suggest "one pump" for highlighting the face, I'm here to tell you to barely tap to expel a fraction of a pump. I think one pump would be more product than most need for the face alone.

The coverage can sheer out to more semi-sheer to medium if applied with a stippling brush and more medium to semi-opaque coverage if applied with a fingertip, but the product applied evenly to bare skin as well as over liquid foundation as it didn't lift it up. The texture was fluid and smooth--definitely like a lightweight gel--that was easy to work with.

The formula wore well for eight to nine hours on the high points of my face as a highlighter with minimal movement/fading, but I didn't feel like it fully dried down when I used it as a cheek highlighter. As a body highlighter, it was easier to work it over a larger area and feel the product dry down, but there was still a bit of transfer if I pressed my fingertip to my arm but resistant enough that it didn't immediately come off on clothes.

It has a heavier scent that smelled of sweet coconut, a hint of pineapple with a floral undercurrent. The scent is noticeable when applied, whether on body or on face, and it lingers, so it is fairly potent. As long as the scent isn't a deal-breaker, it is a gorgeous take on liquid highlighter if you like a high-shine, glowing finish that has finer pearl.

As a note: This is really not comparable--other than it also being in the liquid highlighter category--to the now-discontinued Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid. The Ignite formula is significantly more pigmented and more intense in its glow/shine/shimmer effect.

Oh how I was hoping that this would give the “glass skin” effect in a more noticeable way! Instead…I just don’t know how I feel about the glittery effect. It DOES sound pretty for summer. But I’m not a fan of glittery cheeks on my not so young cheekbones!

Girl, for 2020, glass is out and ‘cream skin’ is in. I’d like to see side-by-side photo examples (with product routines.) I think I vote for the transparency/translucency of glass skin.
