Becca Star Child (2) Light Shifter Finishing VeilBecca Star Child (2) Light Shifter Finishing Veil ($34.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had sheer coverage, so it did tint and show up noticeably on my skin (as it was not my shade), but I would expect this shade to work for light-medium to medium complexions.
This was the first shade I bought from the range, as I thought it would suit my coloring, but it was too dark by a few shades, so you won't find me wearing it above, since that wouldn't make sense, but I did apply and test it out nonetheless (in person, where nobody but hubby could see me!). The powder initially had a smoother, silky consistency but a firmer press, so it wasn't powdery, which I liked, but it developed hard pan quickly.
The hard pan made it harder and harder to pick up product and rendered it useless after a few uses. I had to use a paper towel to rub away that hardened layer to bring it back to life, which meant product waste and an extra step to use it.
Ignoring the hard pan problem (which isn't minor!), the powder itself did have a satin finish that softened and smoothed out my skin. It applied evenly and diffused well without lifting up base products or turning patchy/caky in places. When applied over my base, it extended the wear of it by an hour and a half.
