Becca Luminary (1) Light Shifter Dewing TintBecca Luminary (1) Light Shifter Dewing Tint ($30.00 for 1 oz.) is a light beige with warmer, peachy undertones and a luminous sheen. It had sheer color payoff, which was as expected, when used all-over (as a tinted moisturizer) and more semi-sheer to medium coverage when I applied it as a standalone highlighter (dabbed on my cheekbones). I would agree with the shade range being more flexible than rigid as a result.

The product had a lightweight, more gel-cream consistency that had a wetter look when initially applied. It dried down for the most part, didn’t remain tacky, but still looked like glassy skin with very faint pearl. It was easy to apply and spread out for all-over application or to pat on top of cheekbones (over bare skin or over foundation) as a liquid/cream highlighter as it didn’t lift up my base products. It wore well for nine hours as a tinted moisturizer and eight and a half hours as a highlighter.

Formula Overview

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).

I really love the softer focus sheen on this one. It probably isn’t the right shade for me, but boy, it sure does look like glass skin!

Hi Allison!

The formula overview tab has info on how it compares! I’m not sure which I prefer yet – that’s way too early to tell 🙂 I am guessing this will be more coverage and not as much luminosity as I’d want given I usually mix these products with medium-coverage foundation. I’ve been using AURIC’s Glow Lust lately!

I have both, HFF shade 1 and Luminary.
HFF is the one product I will never give up, and use almost daily.
I use it over foundation to add luminosity to my forehead, nose and cheeks (IMO there’s nothing that compares to HFF, it so seamlessly works with any foundation).
The Dewing tint is too light (not enough coverage) for me to use on it’s own, I have very clear skin, but any redness around my nose and cheeks totally shows through, so I have to use concealer under and carefully top the concealer with Luminary.
OR I can blend Luminary in with foundation, which I’ve found to be the best use but I already have half-dozen products that I can blend with foundation already.
Knowing what I do now, I’d stick with HFF (more luminous) and not have purchased the Becca.
Saying that, in the summer when I get a tan, I think a shade darker might be lovely for no-makeup days!
