Becca- Moonstone Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25+

Some years ago when Becca was sold at Sephora for the first time (Becca's products were phased out from the stores some time in 2006 or 2007 and reintroduced last year) I spent several store visits desperately trying to like the very popular Shimmering Skin Perfector and make it work on my skin. It didn't. I tested every available color but between the texture, the finish, and the shades it was never a good fit. However, when Becca released Moonstone a few months ago I was willing to give it a chance, and I'm very glad I did.

Becca  Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone is exactly what I wanted YSL Dare to Glow luminizer to be: an effective yet subtle pale gold highlighter that lends itself to various methods of application (under or over foundation, as well as mixed with it). Moonstone gives a visible highlighting effect without a metallic finish or a noticeable change in pigment (YSL's major downfall), and the color is a perfect match for me.  The smooth texture has no visible particles (one of the issues I had with older Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector shades). I'd say that Moonstone has earned its place next to my other liquid highlighter favorites from Rouge Bunny Rouge.

Bottom Line: Gorgeous.

Becca Moonstone Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25+  is available from Sephora and Dermstore ($41).


  1. Gaia, does it have any perceptible scent? My gripe with Becca products is their scent. It never seems to fade and I just don't like it. I'm hoping they make this unscented someday.

    1. Trish, the packaging lists perfume as an ingredient, but I think I'm anosmic to whatever they use because I can barely smell it beyond a faint floral hint. Give it a sniff next time you're at Sephora.

  2. I own one in Topaz. I really like the way it blends so naturally into the skin.
