Becca Topaz x Gilt Liquid Crystal Glow GlossBecca Topaz x Gilt Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss ($22.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium taupe brown with subtle, warm undertones and multi-colored pearl (mostly violet, teal, and gold). It had semi-sheer pigmentation that applied evenly with a smooth, lightweight texture that just had a touch of tackiness to it. The gloss spread easily on my lips and sat well on them. It lasted for three hours and was hydrating.
Becca describes the formula as a "mix of unique pearls blended together to create a multi-dimensional finish" with "nourishing ingredients that leave lips lavishly soft and smooth" and a "luxurious coconut and vanilla scent." They can be worn alone or applied on top of other lip colors for shine/shimmer, but the brand did not seem to make any more specific claims with respect to pigmentation--given that they are supposed to be worn on top of products but could be worn alone, I am expecting semi-sheer to medium coverage.
In general, the formula is more like a sheer to semi-sheer gloss with moderate pearl, sometimes with more nuance and other times was more like a traditional, shimmery gloss. The formula was lightweight, thin, lightly tacky, and comfortable to wear but only lasted two to three hours. For most of the shades, I detected the scent throughout the wear but only tasted soapiness with one (Topaz x Gilt). The glosses were less shifting in their shimmer/pearl as they were just sparkly and mirror-like in shine.
Inspired by raw gemstones melted into liquid form, kaleidoscopic pearls shift shades as they catch the light to take every lip look to the next level. Each shade features a custom mix of unique pearls blended together to create a multi-dimensional finish that flatters all skintones. The conditioning lip gloss formula is infused with a luxurious coconut and vanilla scent and enriched with nurturing ingredients that leave lips feeling lavishly soft and smooth.
