Becca Moonstone Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a shimmering, golden champagne with a frosted sheen. theBalm Solid Gold is nearly identical. Illamasqua Aurora is a cream product. Bobbi Brown 24 Karat can be darker, more golden. See comparison swatches.

Just released, the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed is supposed to be a “creamy powder luminizer that absorbs and reflects light for a superb natural glow.” The texture is a dream: soft, smooth, incredibly finely-milled and silky against the skin. It had excellent color payoff, and to get the most natural, barely-there glow, I highly recommend using a light hand with a fluffy or fan brush. It has such a high shimmer content that a denser brush tended to apply it too heavily, which resulted in emphasized pores. On my medium complexion, too much washed me out and acted like neon, flashing lights for Pores’ville, but applied lightly–especially over blush–it worked beautifully.  Moonstone wore well for eight and a half hours before starting to fade around nine hours.

This reminds me a bit of Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight powder and one of the Dior powder highlighters that I own and can’t think of the name..the colour and texture are very similar. I love both powders and liquids in this type of product but going to stick to my Chantecaille, Hourglass, and RBR favs.

I don’t hear much about Becca products, but the ones I do, they seem to be really awesome. I bet this would look super pretty all over on a very fair person.

This looks beautiful! The holiday Chantecaille tend to turn ashy on me when not *perfectly applied, so this worries me a bit. How is this against MAC’s Whisper of Gilt, Christine? Is this closer to the Guerlain Meteorites maybe or say, a highlighter (mineralize skinfinish)?

The texture would be more like Whisper of Gilt – Whisper of Gilt’s coloring being yellower and browner. Definitely not a finish like Meteorites, though!

i think it would be more helpful if you applied the highlighter more on the side/orbital bone instead of so far down the cheeks and maybe photograph at an angle and not straight on. i feel like most people wear their highlight the way i described and the way you apply/photograph i usually just see shiny cheeks/enhanced pores and that’s not very helpful

Hi Sarah,

It’s only applied on the very tops of my cheekbones, and I’ve contoured instead of using a blush, so the blush color wouldn’t interfere with the texture or coloring of the highlighter. I normally angle the shot, but it didn’t turn out well – so this is the only photo I had that did turn out.

Christine,

I would like to ask….between Chantecaille Rose Petals and Becca moonstone,
Which one do u prefer??

I am Fair and neutral skintone. Thanks.

I have this in Topaz for my Mac NC45 skin. I first tried this just out of the box as a highlighter and I was not that impressed but once I played around with it and got it just right over my blush I liked it a lot more. Normally, I don’t have to work as much for highlighting.

I’m very glad you mentioned this wasn’t foolproof, Christine. I almost picked this up bc another beauty blogger loved it and was raving about it. It’s definitely not for me though, it’s too easy for me to go heavy-handed when I’m in a hurry.

It can be so, so lovely, but it can take a little extra work (not a lot, but it’s not as easy as some of my fave highlighters!).
