Becca Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured

Becca Pearl Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured ($38.00 for 0.19 oz.) is described as a “white pearl.” It’s a neutral-to-cool-toned, shimmery white with a luminous finish. Cle de Peau Pastel (11) (P, $55.00) is less shimmery, powder. Chanel Poudre Signee de Chanel Illuminating Powder (LE, $68.00) is warmer, powder. Chanel Lumiere Sculptee de Chanel Highlighting Powder (LE, $72.00) is less shimmery, powder. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The formula was lightweight, thin, and lightly emollient; it spread and blended well on the skin, but it didn’t feel wet or tacky so it is less prone to disturbing base products, if you use it on top of other products. I tested and wore it over bare skin per usual, and it works wonderfully that way, along with over and under foundation. This is a shade more suitable for lighter skin tones, especially if you want to wear it at a higher opacity as it does have a stronger white base. It highlights and adds a very soft shimmer-sheen to the skin without adding color nor does it emphasize pores. It could also be used to lighten and add luminosity to a more matte cream blush. The color coverage was mostly opaque–less pigmented compared to other shades I’ve reviewed–but has the same blendability, so it can be applied heavily or easily sheered out. If you prefer a sheerer look, lightly tap onto cheeks with fingertips or a stippling brush. It wore well for eight hours before fading.

This is beautiful! I love silvery highlighters! I kind of wish they had this in powder form. I never have patience with cream highlighters. I have the chanel camelia de plumes and I love it but I still feel like it has some apparent shimmer that the becca ones really don’t seem to have.

I would love this in powder form! They do have it in the liquid formula as well.

L’Oreal Magic Lumi primer I used as a highlighter for years (until it went bad. lol ) for that bright glow.

I wish cream products weren’t such a no-no for me because I really like this color! I wish they would release it in the pressed powder collection too.

That’s not my issue, but thanks for the head’s up!

Cream products for some reason just always end up flaking and looking gross/caked on, no matter how thin or sheer I apply them.

You look just gorgeous, although I can’t say I’ve ever seen a photo of you where you looked anything but lovely! But this just looks like it just gives you a natural glowing sheen and you can’t pinpoint whether it’s any particular product, it’s so subtle on your cheeks.

Do you think it’d be okay as an all-over luminizer for those of us who hate sparkling? I’ve been trying to find a product to add a subtle brightness to my whole face without looking obviously glittery/having little pinpicks of light flash when moving around in direct sunlight, but it’s been a trickier mission than I thought!

Hey GG!

Have you tried a liquid luminizer? Becca makes this in a liquid form, which works really well mixed with moisturizer or liquid foundation!

I don’t like highlighters (I know, I must be crazy) this does swatch pretty…. but I still don’t like how highlighter looks (on anyone). But, thats just me!

Yeah, I might have to break down and get this. I have the bottle version but sometimes it is too clunky to carry with you when you travel.

i love Becca! I have all the other ‘highlighters’, pressed and liquid. The last item I bought was the lowlight/highlight combo which also includes a pourrred highlighter…. I cannot figure out what color this is, do you maybe knie that? As I live in The Netherlands we do not have a Becca counter here So everything is bought online…

I read somewhere it was an “exclusive” shade, but I can’t recall the name, or where I found it (I was looking up what the “Poured” formula actually was), but it wasn’t listed as Opal. However, from what I could tell when I swatched it in-store, it did look alot like Opal.

I agree with the others – I would have preferred it in powder form but oh my, I love these type of white based highlighters. Sometimes I feel like I’m so over the champagne and beige. This is beautiful!

Love this! I’m very fair and sometimes highlighters that lean gold or pink tend to be super noticeable on me, like my face is dirty. Always looking for a good white or silver highlighter!
Will definitely be buying this one!

Hmm..you say this is for” lighter skin tones”. I have ordered all but this one because it went out of stock. How do you feel about this on your skin tone?

I’d rather use one of the others, personally! This one I have to be careful with – it can totally work, but just a little more work/patience. I also like that with the other shades I can use them from sheer to opaque, but this I don’t like on me at more than sheer-semi-sheer coverage.

Thanks for your honesty and saving me some $ and time stalking Sephora’s site waiting to get it. It sold out in the store store I found out yesterday when I popped in too. But,it was in back still and they had no tester since it is still for VIB’s only. I do have one of the little spotlights that I wear here and there(so many highlighters, not enough days)!. But the liquid is more sheer as you have mentioned and I do tend to sheer those out to a very subtle “what highlighter??” look!LOl. Man, It is so pretty, it almost makes me wish I could change my skin tone from day to day so i could wear Pearl one and Topaz the other,lol! it does look pretty on you. but, like I have said, I think you could smear mud on your face and look pretty!

I think this is too white for me, but it’s an option for fairer skintones . Becca seems to be knocking it out of the ballpark with their highlighters –they have so many colors, formats (cream, powder, tube) and they seem to perform well

Yes, definitely! I think it is particularly great for anyone who wants the sheen but finds most highlighters also add some color.

I would love to see this compared to its liquid form and other new highlighters like Clinique’s new chubby stick and the MUFE pro sculpting duo in 1. I’ll probably still get the Clinique one because it’s less time consuming to use.

Hi Ammara,

Unfortunately, I don’t own all of the products, so I did buy the ones I was missing from Becca, but they aren’t here and it will take me sometime to pull everything together for a comparison. My apologies!

YESSSS! A silver highlighter! I have Moonstone, which is nice, but I’m so pale it shows up as super yellow. If I’m going for a cooler look, it clashes. I really wish this were in pressed (I get zits when I apply cream to my cupid’s bow)

but I’m willing to try it, once it comes in stock again.

I’m soooooooooooo sad this is a cream. This is my dream shade of highlighter but creams do not work for me at all. Maybe it’s better this way so I’ll save my money.

I think you may have a small error under the makeup look.. it says that you’re wearing Becca Opal Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured but it’s actually Pearl. Hth! 🙂

This sounds very interesting, specially for travelling! I really want to try Becca Highlighters, but I think I’ll go for the liquid ones first.
