Becca Rose Gold Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter MiniBecca Rose Gold Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter Mini ($19.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a medium, rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. The pigmentation was opaque in a single layer, but the soft, blendable consistency made it easy to apply less or more depending on one’s preferences. The powder blended out nicely along the edges and stopped just short of emphasizing my skin’s natural texture. The texture of this shade was a bit drier and looser compared to the full-sized version I have and was also a bit drier and looser even compared to the other minis, though it really did not seem to impact the application or wear, as it still lasted for eight and a half hours on me.

The formula is supposed to have a "high-shine" finish that "doesn't look glittery" and is blendable with an "intense highlight." The Minis were similar in color and performance to the full-sized shades, but the texture of the Minis seemed ever-so-slightly looser and not as cream-like to the touch. I just didn't feel like that discrepancy wasn't meaningful when I went to apply, blend out, or as the powders wore on the skin throughout the day. They were pigmented, easy to blend out, and had luminous to metallic finishes.
In terms of value, the full-sized highlighters retail for $38.00 and contain 0.28 oz. or cost $135.71/oz., so the minis contain $11.54 worth of product. On the other hand, a mini costs half the price of a full-sized; always keep in mind your usage habits and whether you're someone who will, in fact, use the full highlighter or whether you'd rather spend half the money and still get year(s) of use out of the mini.
