Becca Rose Gold Shimmering Skin Perfector (Liquid) ($38.00 for 1.7 fl. oz.) is described as a “golden rosy pink.” It’s a medium-dark, copper-brown with pink and gold pearly shimmer. Becca Blushed Copper (LE, $38.00) is a powder, darker. Becca Rose Gold (P, $38.00) is slightly more shimmery. MAC Linda (LE, $21.00) is powder, less shimmery, more orange. NARS Fervor (Right) (P) is darker, powder. Sephora + Pantone Universe Marsala (LE, $25.00) is a powder. NARS Na Pali Coast (P, $39.00) is redder. Laura Mercier Spellbound (LE, $42.00) is a powder. MAC Barbados Girl (LE, $20.00) is similar. Illamasqua Supernatural (P, $24.00) is similar. MAC Cheeky Bronze (P, $30.00) is lighter, powder. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

This is a liquid highlighter that comes in a bottle with a pump, which tends to pump out at least as much as you’d need to mix in with a base product (foundation, moisturizer, primer, etc.), so you’ll want to have a smaller sample jar on hand for excess if you plan to use it for spot highlighting. The liquid version of Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfectors is designed to be sheer, and it is just that–sheer–though this one is naturally darker and will give a little color to the skin for fair to medium skin tones. When mixed in, I get a very, very subtle glow and warmth, but it doesn’t add really noticeable color–it’s not as if I used self-tanner, so if the darkness of the color has made you wary of mixing it with a base product, it might surprise you. The texture is lightweight, thin and almost watery (not in a bad way), which is easily spread across the skin without lifting base products, if you prefer to apply on top of other products. On its own, it wears for seven and a half hours, and when I mixed it, it didn’t interfere with the longevity of the base product.

I already have this in the pressed version and have to apply it lightly. While this is gorgeous I think it would be too intense for my pale skin.

I’ll eventually splash out for this. I have the Spotlight trio and it’ll take me a while to get through those, plus the other various highlighters I have, a couple of which are also rose gold! I do find that the “gold” part of rose gold face products translates to a slightly brown-toned finish rather than a pink finish, so they don’t tend to emphasise redness for me. Even the Blushed Copper doesn’t, although I definitely use that as a blush, not a highlighter.

I like many of these highlighters and love the different formulas of the colors. I just wish they would make Pearl in their pressed formula!!!! Does anyone know if they will in the future?
