Becca x Sananas Parisian Lights Review

Happy Wednesday! I have the lovely new highlighter release from Becca to review for you today.

I picked up the Becca X Sananas Parisian Lights Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed ($38 USD) from Beautylish.

This release was in collaboration with the French beauty influencer, Sananas (youtube / instagram).

I was one of those people who had an alarm set on their phone to make sure that I got this compact. The marketing for it was beautiful and the swatches were amazing.

I’m not going to lie, this highlighter is beautiful, but mainly for medium to deep skintones. For reference I have fair to light skin (MAC NC15-20 / Fenty 150 / Power Fabric 3.5), and this shows up as a bruise on my skin, even with a very light hand. I really wanted to love this, because it is so beautiful and I am a collector of highlighters, but I just can’t use this.  The colour is predominantly gold, with just a hint of pink, unlike the Pink Quartz (LE) which is more pink and less gold.

I want to keep it, but it would just sit in my drawer because I won’t ever be tanned enough to wear it. I am, however,  happy that Becca came out with a highlighter for deeper skintones! The compact is slightly lighter than the others, there is also less product in it (0.25oz vs 0.28oz).

Did you pick up this little gem?
