Is anyone else insanely addicted to highlighting powders? I keep trying to break my addiction but it’s so hard these days. On top of giving a gorgeous glow, highlighters are now coming in beautiful packaging and designs. Making them even harder to resist. The second I saw the new limited edition Becca Blushed Copper Shimmering Skin Perfector I knew I had to have it.
The packaging is stunning. Pictures seriously don’t do it any justice! It’s a sleek metallic rose gold that wowed me the second I took it out of the box. And the imprint? Eye candy overload! I almost didn’t want to touch it but the shade is so enticing that I couldn’t wait to dig my fingers up in it.
Blushed Copper is a warm copper with red undertones that’s loaded with fine golden shimmer. I was drawn to the color because it looked perfect for deeper complexions–and OMG, it is heavenly! Blushed Copper is actually widely flattering on a variety of complexion. You’ll just want to use a light hand if you have a lighter skin tone.
But, honey, Blushed Copper is everything you could want in a highlighting powder in more! It’s incredibly pigmented and has a velvety, smooth texture that almost feels like a cream and blends very easily giving the skin an insanely beautiful glow. And it’s not a metallic kind of glow either that emphasizes pores. Nope!
Blushed Copper gives a soft, lit from within kind of glow that’ll make people think you woke up like this, a la Beyoncé. I simply take a small fan brush and lightly sweep a little across my cheekbones and down the bridge of my nose and my face instantly lights up. And when I add a little more, the deep coppery base becomes more pronounced and doubles as a subtle blush. Either way, by the time I get off work (8-9 hours) I’m still glowing like a housewife!
Blushed Copper is a tad on the expensive side at $40 but I’d say it’s worth snapping up before it’s sold out. The formula is superb and the color is unique and wildly flattering. I have way too many highlighting powders in my stash but for the last 2 months I’ve been using Blushed Copper religiously. I recommend it to just about anyone who loves to glow but I especially recommend all my WOC divas to snatch this up! You can find it exclusively at Sephora.
