Pure Pearl

Becca Pure Pearl Pearl Glow Luster Glow Powder ($40.00 for 0.32 oz.) is a pale, pinky-peach with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had fine gold and lavender pearl that gave it a subtle, cooler tone at certain angles, though it seemed warmer overall. It had opaque pigmentation in a single layer, though it was easy to achieve sheerer coverage by diffusing or picking up less product.

The texture was smooth to the touch, dense and firm in the pan but it wasn’t stiff to work with, though you’ll want to use a moderately dense brush to ensure even pick up of product. The powder applied evenly to bare skin, blended out with ease, and lasted nicely for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.

This is a new formula, and I hope we’ll see more shades in the future; it’s a nice alternative–something less intense but still luminous–than their original powder highlighters. This formula is supposed to “apply and blend like a powder” but have a “liquid-like glow.”

This highlighter blows me away! I love how it isn’t so intense, but more like a dewy sheen. Catch is that I own Estee Edit 1st Light and Ofra Covent Garden. Still very much tempted to get this one, though!

Loving this! I hope you are right, Christine, and that there are more colours coming our way in this formula. I have dupes from The Estee Edit and Dior but still I can see myself having to work hard to resist this beauty!

I’m sorry, but man, I kind of dislike this product. I received it last Thursday…and the packaging feels cheap and I hate the design. Ever since Mel Thompson said, all I can think of how horrible the design is. I’m not saying it here, just go watch the video lol.

This is really pretty. I have both of the Dior Dupes so I am all set but I would snap this up if I didn’t have the dupes. It is the perfect shade for me being both warm/cool and light enough not to make my cheekbones look dirty.

I love warm and cool mixed too! I’m wondering, Christine, how do you think this compares to Becca Berlin Girl Glow? Thanks!

I have both and find them to be very different. Aside from the difference in formula, the colors aren’t at all similar. I’m very fair with cool undertones and this pulls a neutral pink on me and isn’t too dark that it leaves a stripe on my skin. Berlin Glow has a neutral beige base and a slight duochrome blue shift. It’s not an intense or dark blue and is undetectable unless the light hits it in a certain way. I’ve described it as a sophisticated duochrome. I hope this helps but feel free to ask other questions!

Gorgeous, but, I own 3 of the dupes so I’ll pass. Are you reviewing the eye palette too? It’s calling me, but, Becca is not known for their shadows.

I have a weakness for highlighters. I’m like a raven – drawn to shiny baubles. Just got the new Chanel and Marc Jacobs highlighters. The MJ is gorgeous and I use it almost daily as a blush topper. I have the Dior dupe, as well as 2 other Dior highlighters. I also have Cookie from Benefit which has such a beautiful texture – silky, creamy. Then there’s Amrezy, brought to us by the makeup Gods. And all the Jouer highlighters, 2 of which I could swear I’ve used up but still look like they have 90%+ product left. Then there are the miscellaneous highlighters in face palettes and of course the magical PMG trio – which could rule them all and therefore sits atop my vanity. There’s a few collectible highlighters – including the Chantecaille x DeGournay that came out last year which I haven’t touched because it’s too pretty. I have an old Becca champagne pop that I haven’t used in ages. And some other randos. And my very first one – La Bella Donna cream highlighter which is still my favorite. Oh and don’t get me started on cream and liquid highlighters.

I am trying to talk myself out of this lovely area 51-inspired creation.. and also the MELT 💀 that’s coming out in a few weeks.

And the thing about highlighters is it seems it’s incredibly tough to make a bad one! I wonder why.

I was just looking at the highlighters I own earlier today thinking that I will never need to buy another one in my life. Then this! I live the cool and warm together and it being a more toned down highlighter really got my attention.
That said, I have dupes and I do not need this!

I’m so happy brands are coming out with these type of highlighting shades… something not too cool, not too warm. This is my ideal shade!

I bought this the day Ulta launched it for Diamond members and I love it! I was worried it would be too dark and warm on my NW10 skintone but applied lightly and buffed into the skin, it pulls a neutral pink on me and doesn’t leave a dark stripe. It’s glitter and shimmer free and I would also love for Becca to release more shades in this formula. Pearl’s cool toned white/silver would be beautiful!
