Review: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured Highlighter

Today is a review of the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Poured highlighter, which is Becca’s cream version of their beloved Shimmering Skin Perfector highlighters. Unless you’re new to the beauty community, you’ll know that everyone raves about Becca’s Pressed (powder) highlighter as well as their liquid highlighter, but as I mentioned in my 8 Beauty Products I Love That No One Talks About blog post, I haven’t heard much about their Poured formula.

To be honest, I bought this product with a healthy dose of skepticism, because I’m not a fan of cream highlighters and probably would not have given this a second glance if it hadn’t been 50% off at Sephora during one of the Weekly Wow sales back in October.

Hello again! I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day, regardless of how you spent it! I wanted to continue with my Valentine’s Day theme and share with you 8 products that I absolutely love, but that I never hear anyone talk about. Is this topic a bit of a stretch for Valentine’s Day? Maybe. But just roll with it, please? A lot of products are hyped up, some for good reason. For me, I feel like these items don’t get the hype they deserve!

Shiseido Perfect Rouge Lipstick

Everyone talks about the MAC lipsticks, Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche lipsticks, and the Urban Decay Vice lipsticks…but no one talks about the Shiseido Perfect Rouge lipsticks! The formula of these are so stellar – pigmented and creamy, but so lightweight with a bit of shine shine. It feels like you’re wearing a lip balm, only with the coverage of a lipstick. I only own one of these in a full size and a bunch of deluxe samples from GWPs I’ve received over the years, but they all perform beautifully.

My January Low-Buy Purchase

I decided to go on a low-buy at the beginning of the year as 2016 will be heavy on expenses (wedding! new house!). As per my low-buy, I set my January allowance to be $50 – higher than other months because I knew January would be a stressful month and that I would need to give myself a little wiggle room for some retail therapy. Well, I was right and I decided to wander around Sephora when I was at the mall last weekend.
