The Non-Shiny Glowy Base: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Part 2

Our recent review of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector mostly focussed on its usefulness as a highlighter.  This was entirely down to my hatred of an all over glowy look - which on me, usually translates into shine and glitter and general ick.  A couple of people asked if the Becca fluid would work well mixed in with foundation, and so this afternoon I had a go, and guess what?  I'm pleasantly surprised.  Skin looks healthy with a bit of a glow, but even with a flash there's no shine or obvious glitter.  Brilliant.

I used a tiny pump of the Shimmering Skin Perfector and mixed it in with two drops of my usual MAC Studio Fix Fluid foundation - the ratio was about two parts foundation to one part skin perfector.  I think it looks fairly subtle and perfectly appropriate for the day.

Thank you, lovely readers, for busting me out of my glow-hating bubble!


  1. Oooh nice! I'm so pleased you like this product. I ordered it online just before your first review (no joke; like an hour before) and was quite nervous about reading in case you said it was awful. Can't wait for it to arrive now!

  2. OO I've been doing this lately. Used to be super anti-glow products & shimmers because it always looks greasy/ shiny/ sparkly on me. :/

    But lately tried liquid highlighter instead, and find it much much nicer than powders. Have been mixing my no7 liquid highlighter + foundation, or lately since I'm taking a break from foundation, its highlighter + sunblock + BBcream/ tinted moisturiser.

    Liking it!

  3. This looks lovely! The more I hear about this, the more I want it!

  4. The more I use this product the more I love it - I'll definitely be adding it into my foundation more often.
