Highlighter Focus: Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in “Lilac Geode”

Becca’s newest Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in “Lilac Geode” that launched August 20th this past summer is the newest and most recent edition to the Skin Perfector family that recently launched and a gorgeous lavender shade that caught my eye (especially being a purple of all shades lover which is my favorite color).  It is a unique color to the line of skin perfectors of which there are various shades of like the infamous “Opal” (the most befitting and universal to all skin types), “Moonstone” (the favorite for fairer skin types), and the most popular of all “Champagne Pop” in the collaboration between Becca and beauty Youtuber favorite Jaclyn Hill that launched the collection of “Champagne Pop” products in liquid, pressed powder, and cream forms that started a revolution and propelled Jaclyn Hill into beauty guru stardom.  I had swatched the other Skin Perfector of Becca’s in “Prismatic Amethyst” and thought it was absolutely gorgeous so when I saw “lilac” in the title in another perfector from Becca and with the quality of the other skin perfectors I love so much I couldn’t wait to try it.

It is described by Becca as a “metallic lavender” but I have to admit that I was a little disappointed at the title “Lilac Geode” and when I first saw and swatched it I thought it was not as pretty as “Prismatic Amethyst” and not a true lavender or purple shade that it’s title states but more of a pale rose/pink with a gold “shift” or “golden reflects” as well as being more of a warm than cool tone and not as pigmented in my opinion.  It is definitely the same creamy formula though that the skin perfectors are famous for and comes in really beautiful metallic chrome silver and light purple packaging that in my opinion is one of the prettiest of Becca’s cosmetic line.  It is priced just like the other perfectors at $38.00 for 0.25 oz. of product and has an embossed diagonal pattern on top.

So, while I am impressed with this Lilac Geode Shimmering Skin Perfector as far as the quality of it as with all the other skin perfectors and the reputations they have for that, I have to say that I am a little disappointed in the color representation in the title and description or comparison of it to the lilac shade.  To me the cooler toned “Prismatic Amethyst” Shimmering Skin Perfector is a better representation of that purple shade than this one which is more of a warmer-toned rose gold color than that of a “lilac” shade.  But, to each his own and go out there to try it for yourself to see what you think!
