Worth The Hype? - Becca Opal Highlighter Review

It was recently my birthday and one of the gifts I received was the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in the shade Opal which I had been lusting after for the longest time, now that I've had a chance to try it out I thought I would give you my review. Becca Opal is one of those cult favourite products I've never heard a bad thing about it but for £30 it is quite expensive so today I'm going to share my opinions on this product and whether I think it's worth the hype.

The first thing I need to talk about is the packaging, it comes in a sleek cardboard box and the compact itself feels very luxe and weighted, it has a distinct black and silver outer with a nice sized mirror inside. The highlighter inside instantly looks stunning before you even use/swatch the product, it's a beautiful golden peach shade that suites a range of different skin tones.

I've used this highlighter a number of times now and it's really beautiful, you can use it with a light hand to create a soft subtle glow or really build it up to create that intense wet-look highlight. Some highlighters can show a bit of a white/grey cast when looking straight ahead but there's none of that with this highlight, the shade is very flattering and gives a seamless finish. It does claim to have no glittery particles but I do find it can look a tiny bit glittery in very strong bright light but the glitter particles are very fine so most of the time you won't notice it.

I think that £30 is quite expensive for a highlight but I think this one is worth it, it's a beautiful highlight that can be used in different ways to give different effects and I think it'll last a very long time as you only need to use the tiniest amount, so, overall, I think this is worth the hype and I'll definitely be reaching for it loads over Christmas and New Year!
