Becca Light Waves Highlighter Palette ($34.00 for 0.27 oz.) includes three highlighters–two we’ve seen before and one new to the palette (Pink Sapphire)–housed in a slim, plastic palette. I found the quality of the three shades to be fairly good with the two previously-released shades performing on par with the full-sized versions I have, while the weakest shade was the new shade, Pink Sapphire, as it wasn’t quite as pigmented as the other shades but built up and applied well that I imagine most won’t have any issues with it.

Golden Mint

Becca Golden Mint Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a very light green with soft, warm undertones and a subtle, green-to-gold shifting pearl finish. It had opaque pigmentation with a soft, smooth consistency that applied evenly to skin and blended out easily. The consistency was soft, silky, and lightly creamy, and the powder sat nicely on the skin and did not emphasize my skin’s natural texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me.

Applied, it looked more like a subdued gold than minty green, which seems to be in line with the brand’s marketing: “minty green that transforms to a beautiful, wearable gold on the complexion.” Since the brand already has a few golden-hues in their line-up, I personally was keen for something a little more different, but it’s still a nice highlighter regardless.

Formula Overview

$38.00/0.28 oz. - $135.71 Per Ounce

The Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formula is described as having an "ultra-reflective shine" with a "creamy" texture that "applies seamlessly." In general, the texture of the highlighters is incredibly smooth, silky, and finely-milled with frosted to metallic finishes and the occasional more sparkly finish. They tend to have a high-shine, more metallic finish and are a stronger highlighter, so they are going to be best suited to someone who likes an obvious highlight over a very subtle one. That being said, with a fan brush and a deft hand, one could certainly achieve a subtler, all-over luminosity as well, but if one takes a typical, tapered highlighting brush, there will be quite a bit of pigment and highlight on the skin. I find that some shades can emphasize the look of pores slightly to moderately, depending on application. They tend to last between eight to nine hours on me.

Becca Apres Ski Glow Glow Face Palette ($54.00 for 0.54 oz.) contains two blushes, one bronzer, and three highlighters. Two shades–Icicle and Winter Berry–are new and exclusive to the palette, while the rest are available individually. I do not think that the quality of the powders in the palette is the same as the full-sized range; some perform worse but they felt different: drier, more papery. It’s always a shame when a brand changes up their formulas when they put them in a palette for the worse.

Moonstone

Becca Moonstone Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter Mini ($19.00 for 0.085 oz.) is a light gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. The color seemed ever-so-slightly lighter and yellower compared to my full-sized version. It had excellent pigmentation with a soft, blendable consistency that did not feel quite as cream-like as the full-sized version of Moonstone, but from a functional perspective, it did not matter. I felt that the mini applied and lasted just as well as the full-sized. It lasted for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

Formula Overview

$19.00/0.09 oz. - $211.11 Per Ounce

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.

Rose Gold

Becca 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.
