Becca Moonstone is a very warm-toned, light gold with a luminous finish. It is a permanent highlighter that retails for $38.00 and contains 0.25 oz.
Becca Moonstone Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a pale gold with strong, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, which could easily be diffused for sheerer coverage by using a lighter hand or a more feathery brush.
The consistency was soft, a little dusty, but smooth and blendable on my skin. I still find the texture of the formula to seem a bit drier compared to the one years ago (like in 2013), though the actual color, application, and effect on my skin looks the same. It applied evenly and didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture. It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading a bit.
Why is this being reviewed you ask? Because I--stupidly--did not read through the product listing before purchasing and thought it was a NEW shade to celebrate the Year of the Rat, when in fact it is long-standing Moonstone in new clothing! ?
