Becca Limited Edition Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed


Release Date: Currently Available
Availability: Sephora
Price: $38.00

Company’s Description

A creamy powder luminizer that absorbs and reflects light for a superb natural glow. This first-of-its-kind, Blushed Copper fuses together the soft shimmer of a luminizer with the subtle pigment of a blush. It is formulated with ultrafine luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light so your natural radiance is not lost. Unlike the traditional pressed powder method, which simply mixes and compresses dry ingredients, this unique process blends pigments with proprietary liquid binders—resulting in an optimum, creamy application with balanced color dispersion. This compact of multi-toned, ultra-fine pigment pearls adjust to the skin’s natural undertones for a truly unique glow.
