Becca Gradient Glow is a very warm-toned, medium-dark gold with a metallic finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.25 oz.
Becca Gradient Glow Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) mixes to yield a light-medium, peach gold with warm, orange undertones and a metallic sheen. The compact contains a strip of each of the following Shimmering Skin Perfectors: Bronzed Amber, Moonstone, Opal, Rose gold, and Topaz. I don't find the size of each strip to be conducive to using any one shade on its own on the cheeks (you'd need a small eye brush), but feasibly, one could get a slightly richer, warmer result by focusing on the top half or a slightly pinker, light-medium in depth result using the lower half. It was, of course, easiest to use swirled together.
The consistency was soft, finely-milled, and blendable without being powdery or too densely-packed in the pan. It applied evenly to my cheekbones, diffused with minimal effort, and yielded a noticeable sheen but didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. It had good color coverage, but the softness of the powder made it easy to diffuse for sheerer coverage or be used with a lighter hand for less coverage from the get-go. This shade wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading a bit.
