For the longest time, I put off purchasing BECCA Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector because I was quite satisfied with my highlighter collection and could not imagine how BECCA's product might differ or be even more phenomena than the ones I own. But as my previous review of BECCA Champagne Pop (click here) will tell, it's pretty obvious that I bought it and that I love it. So when BECCA Rose Quartz Shimmering Skin Perfector ($38) came out as a limited edition, I jumped right in and bought it as soon as it went live on Sephora. I've used it twice and all I can say is that this is one freaking phenomenal highlighter and I need a backup!

I personally do not think this rose gold case looks all that good paired with the silver top especially since this rose gold looks like it has a tint of purple in it? Do you see what I'm saying? However, when you open it up and see this gorgeous rose quartz highlighter, it all makes sense and comes together.

BECCA Rose Quartz Shimmering Skin Perfector contains 7g / 0.25oz of product which is slightly less than what you get in other Shimmering Skin Perfectors (8.5g / 0.28 oz). Not sure if that is because of the etched surface or what, but whatever the case is, for the same price you get less product with Rose Quartz.

The swatch on the left is just a simple finger swatch, and on the right I tried to blend it out.

I seriously majorly suck at taking photos of highlighters and this photo does not do any justice to this gorgeous Rose Quartz highlighter. From the photo it looks as though this is a super ashy pale pink but it is more neutral and has golden shimmers to it as well!

Initially I thought this might be really similar to my favorite highlighter of all times, Dior's Glowing Pink Illuminator (reviewed here and also failed to do this highlighter any justice). Even from the pan, you can tell that Rose Quartz is slightly more peachy and definitely darker.

On the left is BECCA Rose Quartz and on the right is Dior Glowing Pink. Both highlighters are beautiful, but I personally find Rose Quartz to be something that is more suitable for wide range of skin tones than Glowing Pink, which I find to be more flattering on people with light to medium skin tones.

To make this highlighter pop in photos, I tried to layer it but soon realized that one swipe (used my Sigma F35 brush) was more than freaking enough! It was INTENSE yo! I would probably need to do like 5 layers of Dior or any other brand highlighters to get the intensity I got from Rose Quartz. I actually think this one is more pigmented than Champagne Pop or Opal! So for the sake of reviewing this highlighter, I literally dusted this on my cheekbone, brow bone, on my forehead, cupid's bow, tips of my nose, and on my chin--pretty much everywhere. It isn't as white or too frosty although my photos seem to suggest that it is, but trust me when I say it literally brightens up my skin tone and add a perfect amount of peachy pink beam to my cheeks. Also, I actually found this highlighter to accentuate my pores wayyyyy less than did Champagne Pop, so I really have to give this one huge thumbs up! :D
