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.”
