Becca Borealis (5.5) Light Shifter Dewing TintBecca Borealis (5.5) Light Shifter Dewing Tint ($30.00 for 1 oz.) is a medium-dark brown with warm undertones and a dewy, luminous finish. It had a noticeable tint and some pearl but it didn't appear overtly shimmery when applied to the skin, so it ended up giving a more dewy sheen than pearly one.
It had sheer color coverage when applied all over the face with more semi-sheer, buildable coverage when applied to my cheeks (as a bronzer but on those of a medium-deep or deeper complexion, it would work as a highlighter). It had a lightweight consistency that felt like a gel-cream, which ensured it spread readily over my skin. I had no trouble applying it as a cheek product, all-over as a tinted moisturizer, or mixed in/worn under foundation. This shade lasted well for nine hours as a tinted moisturizer and eight and a half hours as a standalone highlighter.
