The chic NARS matted packaging is love at first, but in time, it becomes less desirable… With all the busyness of makeup applications, comes fingerprints, powders, and other debris that sticks onto these packagings. And cleaning them is not as easy as a simple wipe.

Becca Rose Quartz Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Review

I’ve been a fan of Becca Shimmering Skin Perfectors for many years. I have Moonstone and Opal both in Liquid and Pressed, as well as couple of shades in Poured Creme, and some of these are my most used highlighters.

My skin is very warm tone with slightly olive undertone, so warm tones do suit me better, however, I don’t like overly warm toned highlighters or blushers; that’s just my personal taste in shades rather than what “suits” me.
