Topaz Flashes Gilt

Becca Topaz Flashes Gilt Light Chaser HighlighterBecca Topaz Flashes Gilt Light Chaser Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium gold with strong, warm orange undertones and shimmer that shifted from gold-to-green. The texture was soft to the touch and a little drier but not in a way that impeded application. It had good pigmentation that applied evenly and blended out without issue, though it emphasized my pores just slightly. This shade lasted for eight hours on me before fading.

The Light Chaser Highlighter formula is supposed to be “more than a highlighter” and have a combination of “kaleidoscopic color and light” that makes it “shift as you move.” There are six shades in the range, and a few of them have more of a visible shift in person (less so in photos) while others just seemed like a typical highlighter. From the brand that seemed to put highlighters back on the market with their Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formula, the formula lacked the finesse in texture and blendability I would have expected from Becca. The texture varied from shade to shade with some being drier, looser, and less blendable to smoother, more blendable, and fairly good as a tinted highlighter/subtle blush.

Champagne Dream Flashes Bellini

Becca Champagne Dream Flashes Bellini Light Chaser HighlighterBecca Champagne Dream Flashes Bellini Light Chaser Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a light, yellowed peach with warm undertones and shimmer that shifted from peach-to-pink. The shift was very subtle, though, and the base seemed to have more white to it, so it ended up coming through rather noticeably, which minimized the impact of the shifting shimmer. The consistency was drier, looser in the pan, but it picked up fine on my brush and blended out without trouble. It had a moderate luminosity that did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. The highlighter lasted for seven and a half hours on me.

Topaz x Gilt is so pretty and it’s one I would wear if I needed more highlighters which I don’t so I won’t be purchasing any of these.

IDK, I think there are QC batch issues with this line 🙁 I swatched these in store yesterday, the testers were brand new, almost untouched.
*Topaz x Gilt – was smooth, pigmented, and very metallic, but it was a warm bronzy gold, I didn’t see any green at all, much less a green shift, even in direct sunlight. But I’m reading reviews where others are complaining theirs are way too green, so there are probably QC issues
*Champagne x Bellini -this was the worst out of the lineup –was dry, subtle, not much shimmer and no shift
Sounds like you got a better batch, but I was very disappointed with my swatches

I think so too. My Champagne x bellini was worse than Christine’s. It was really bad wouldn’t show up on my light-med skin , not even on my hand. I returned it to Sephora. I noticed the one in the store swatched better.

Topaz Flashes Gilt looks very rich and has one enormous punch of sheen! I love it!

The Champagne one just seems ashy looking because of its white base. No can do on me.

It could be hard to wear, I think, depending on whether you paired it with another blush/bronzer – that would limit the strength of the base!

I cycle through like 20 🙁 I like tapered highlighting brushes, though! I also think the type for you will depend on what highlighters you have and how intense (or subtle) you want them to appear on the skin, though.

According to what I’ve seen on the Becca site (they may edit later on – sometimes happens), these highlighters are silicone/dimethicone free. That likely explains the slightly stiffer texture but I’m okay with that as long as the product looks good in the end. Some other highlighters without dimethicone are the Catrice ones, Essence Pure Nude, and the old Urban Decay baked-ish ones. Also the Pixi/Aspyn Ovard Glow-y Powders but I haven’t seen you review them. Do these new Becca ones feel closer to the regular Becca formula or the other ones I’ve mentioned?

These don’t feel like Becca’s highlighter formula, nor Catrice, Essence, or Urban Decay (which has a drier feel but more in the vein of baked products in general).

I’m really confused on the dupes for this? You have Colourpop School is Fun as a dupe for Champagne Dream, but I own that and it is a really obvious very yellow gold shift with a white base. What about it do you consider 90% similar? Is it only the base?

These are nice but another try before you buy situation. The only I know would work without switching it is the rose one.

How would you compare champagne dream chases bellini to UD fireball? The colors look similar. For instance, I own Fireball and adore the color, do I need the Becca one as well?
