Becca and Space NK

It will come as no surprise to hear that I love Space NK.  I love their light and airy stores and the vast array of unique brands.  I love the fact that they ship to Dubai for those times when I need a fix and am not in the UK.  And I love the fact that they have NDulge their loyalty programme which allows you to swap points for prizes as they accumulate.

Recently I realised I had amassed £60 which I was able to redeem.  In May I went a bit mad in the UK stocking up in Space NK so there wasn't a huge amount I was lusting after.  Then I read this post on Heather Davern Makeup which is a blog that was recommended to me in the comments on one of my posts.  I am so glad it was recommended as it's now a firm favourite.  Look how flawless Heather's skin is in the FOTD post linked here.

I saw Heather has used the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl.  This is a product I have seen reviews of here and there and always been interested in, but it is quite expensive at £33 and I didn't know how much use I would get out of it.  So I decided to redeem some of my NDulge points and treat myself.

I chose the lightest shade 'Pearl' as I am pale but there are 4 shades in the range in total.

This product can be used in various different ways-it can be applied as a base to the whole face or mixed with your foundation or with your moisturisor for a dewy, radiant finish.  It can be used as a spot highlighter on cheekbones, nose and cupids bow.  It also contains SPF25.  You get a massive 50ml of product which will last for ages, especially as I found one pump was enough to cover my whole face.

Difficult to pick up on the picture but 'Pearl' has an almost blue based shimmer-it doesn't look glittery or frosted, it just looks like it leaves a healthy radiance and glow to the skin.  This is like the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder but in liquid form.  It's ultra light and diffuses imperfections and gives luminosity to the skin.

This is my first Becca product and so far I am impressed.  What else should I be checking out from the range?
