I can never say no to a BECCA highlight. There’s no doubt that BECCA knows how to glow, so there’s something about their highlights that give me that “gotta catch ’em all” feeling.
I recently added another one to my collection…
The BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Rose Quartz comes in the standard BECCA highlight packaging; a soft plastic matte cement-coloured compact topped with a silver metal disc. The highlight itself is a pale pink with a slightly bronze shift.
I applied it to the tops of my cheeks with my Morphe M501 brush. I found it to have much less impact than other BECCA highlights I’ve tried like Champagne Pop and Opal. It was still pretty, but it didn’t have as much *BAM* as I have come to expect from BECCA.
Compared to the Maybelline highlight in Molten Rose Gold, Rose Quartz is a bit more sheer and has more of a satin finish than a metallic finish. Wet n Wild’s Air* has a more pearly colour, while Rose Quartz has a more rose gold colour.
Rose Quartz just didn’t measure up to the other BECCA highlighters I have come to know and love. By no means is it a poor quality highlight, but it’s definitely the most toned-down BECCA pressed highlighter I’ve tried. If the high impact glow of BECCA’s previous highlighters have seemed a bit intense for you, Rose Quartz might be right up your alley.
