BECCA Cosmetics is out with a new skin-enhancing face palette that has quickly become a favorite in my makeup routine! The limited-edition Be a Light Face Palette introduces new Sheer Glow Filter Powder in four finishes, to brighten, blur, contour and blush. It’s gorgeous!
While I certainly have my choice of finishing powders and face definers in my makeup collection, it’s always nice to have one go-to palette. The Be a Light Palette introduces new Sheer Glow Filter Powder, which uses light-diffusing technology to blur imperfections, and enhance your complexion. It’s like a filter for your face!
The Sheer Glow Filter Powders are silky-soft and blendable, without feeling heavy or substantial on my skin (even when layering the four powders at once). I did prefer to use the Be a Light powders on top of a base, as opposed to bare skin, but either way is an option. The texture is somewhat reminiscent of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, but this palette gets the edge for versatility, a better value and beautiful packaging.
The Be a Light Face Palette comes in two shade choices:
- Full size Brightening Powder (in soft pearl) to boost radiance
- Full size Blur Powder (in beige) to blue imperfections and even out complexion
- Blush (light pink marbled with silver pearl) to add radiance and color
- Contour (in neutral tan) to sculpt and add definition
- Full size Brightening Powder (in neutral peach)
- Full size Blur Powder (in warm sand)
- Blush (warm copper marbled with rose gold pearl)
- Contour (warm bronze)
What strikes me most in my testing and use of the Be a Light Face Palette is how natural the finish is. For application, I used the BECCA Soft Kabuki Brush. I think choosing a soft brush is key; in my experience a stiffer brush resulted in wasted product. Personally, the Blush is so beautiful, I would definitely buy that as a single (hear me BECCA?).
Let’s talk packaging, because that’s such an important piece for me. The Light to Medium Face Palette comes in a gold-finish case, while the Medium to Dark has a rose gold-finish case. Inside, I love that there is a positive Be a Light Mantra; in mine it’s “Be Fearless”. Overall, I love the Be a Light Face Palette!
