Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Prismatic Amethyst

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed - Prismatic Amethyst

Becca has finally brought out the glow I want. I've always admired the whole highlighting range of the brand but thought it was missing a cool-toned one with soft hues. I've acquired quite a few of new highlighting powders lately, but Becca Prismatic Amethyst is indisputably the crown jewel of my collection. The color and the finish is perfect for my liking. I shall not want (okay, maybe I still want a full size Pearl pressed).



I won't say much because it is already quite late here and Monday is looming. I have pictures, though.

Pic from yesterday - here I am just wearing a bit of a concealer sample (Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer in Light), silicone-based loose powder, and the Becca Prismatic Amethyst pretty much all over. It blurs the imperfections without emphasizing the pores.

Today - I did everything as usual (sunscreen, foundation, loose powder, etc.), but I skipped blush and applied Becca Prismatic Amethyst all over (again). 


I just love love the etheral glow it brings to my complexion. It looks natural and not over the top, but certainly is visible. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Prismatic Amethyst ($38) is the most satisfying purchase I made in a while. Highly recommended for any highlighter lover!


Thanks for looking! Wish everyone a great week.

  1. If I loved highlighters, I would definitely pick this up, just for the heck of it. I've been trying to use highlighters every time I apply makeup. I just never seem to use them! I've put my oldest, the Guerlain Cruel Gardenia on the vanity just so I'd reach for it :-)

    1. I understand! You only have one face and highlighter isn't something we can' easily use up. I am jealous you have the Cruel Gardenia, though! It is such a beautiful highlighter.

  2. It gives such a beautiful glow! You look gorgeous and the packaging is amazing too (yes I fall for packaging!)

    1. Thanks! I also like the Pearl shade from the range but it is maybe too cool being mostly white. Prismatic Amethyst looks so much softer yet still on the cool side of the spectrum. Gotta love that. :)

  3. Ooh, this is so pretty on you! I've been looking for a subtle cool-toned highlighter as well (the only pinkish one I have is ColourPop Monster, which is more of a fuchsia duochrome), so I'll definitely swatch this next time I'm at Sephora. I know Wet n Wild just released a LE highlighter that's very similar, but I doubt I'll be able to find that anywhere...

    1. Thank you, AB! I thought it would be more purple, but the color itself is something we often describe "opalescent". It is definitely a cool shade but the pale gold shimmer makes it a slightly warmer and more wearable. Do give it a try. I think it is a good investment if you prefer highlighting over bronzing. Speaking of Wet 'n' Wild, I couldn't find any matte liquid lipstick downstairs except for an empty display. These people are quick for the good stuff. ;p

  4. This highlighter totally lights up your face in such a natural and pretty way! It's no wonder you're in love with it Lena! The prism effect they added to the product is lovely as well.

    I wore the Pur foundation over the weekend. I don't usually go for full coverage but it was nice how the product covered up my freckles and felt so lightweight at the same time :) Thanks again!! Hope your week is off to a lovely start!

    1. Thanks, Rowena! The shimmer isn't the most subtle especially when I compared to something like Rouge Bunny Rouge highlighting powder(which I also love), but is much more so than the existing shades from the range.

      I'm really glad to hear that you're enjoying the foundation. Same here! Actually, I'm wearing Fresco in the picture above. Thank God you let me have Fresco as well, because it turned out Fresco looks better than Pure Beige. I'm not trusting my arm swatch ever again. LOL. Thanks again! :)

  5. The Becca Prismatic highlighter is absolutely perfect on you. You wear the highlighter exactly how it should be worn to give that glow from within appearance. Another excellent review from you. I tried the Pur Bare It All foundation over the weekend unfortunately, it did not work for my very oily skin which was such a shame as I loved the original 4 in 1 Pur foundation in Deeper.

    1. Thank you, Sandra! I've wanted a nice cool toned highlighter for so long and I'm happy to finally have found one I really like. Sorry to hear that the creme version of the new foundation didn't live up to your expectation. I saw your video review on the original. It should be around for a while even if PUR ends up discontinuing the range. :)

  6. HNNNNNNNG. Oy, I need one like another hole in my head, but you make a compelling argument for this. I love this color on you and the effect on your face is really beautiful.

    1. I think Prismatic Amethyst would look beautiful on your already luminous skin, Belly! I don't know if you have tried other colors from the range. As you probably know, the shimmer is more visible than some (RBR highlighting powder, for example), but Prismatic Amethyst is more subtle than its sisters. :)

  7. Oh gosh, I love the color and tone of this highlighter! I much prefer this tone to those of golden or silver undertones.
