Product Shout-Out: BECCA Lilac Geode Shimmering Skin Perfector Powder

Lilac attack!

Normally, I would have no business wearing a purple highlighter. I’ll leave that to the club kids who wanna channel their inner unicorn, because lilac highlights are kind of unicorn makeup, right?

Not as hardcore unicorn as rainbow stripe highlights on your cheeks, but still…majorly unicorn-y.

But BECCA Lilac Geode Shimmering Skin Perfector surprised me.

OK, first of all, and I’ll be the first person to admit this, but this swatch is totally lame.

The camera doesn’t pick up the purple flash, but it’s there, though!

This is one of those products that looks SO much better in person, which is why you’ve gotta check it out next time you’re at a BECCA counter. Swatch that ish, girl, then head for the nearest window in the store, or, if you can, walk outside, and move your arm around in the light and let the sun bounce off your skin. At the right angles, subtle flashes of lavender will dazzle Lilac Geode’s warm pink.

Something different in the sea of golden highlighters…

It’s like those eyeshadows that have an iridescent flash, except super toned down.

I love it. It’s fun and different, and now that I think about it, you can probably also use this as a lid color. I’ve done it before with BECCA highlighters. Just pat them on your lids with a finger, sweep a little bronzer or your favorite brown shadow in the crease, curl your lashes, and boom-boom-boom — done.

Lilac Geode is $38 and limited edition, and it’s at BECCA counters and online now.

    5 Things I’ve Been Loving Lately

    future has an ancient heart

    The first one of 2018!

    1. “The future has an ancient heart.”

    The first time I read this quote by painter, writer and activist Dr. Carlo Levi, it was in a book called Dear Sugar, by Cheryl Strayed. (She’s the woman who wrote Wild.)

    Like most quotes, it means different things to different people. I like to think it means that someday in the future, if I’m lucky, my heart will brim with knowledge and love gleaned from a rich life of experiences and time with friends and family.

    2. Babies in raincoats

    Can I still call her a baby? I know she’s officially a toddler. She turns 2 in March (!). I can’t even believe that.

    Please note how she turned her rattle into a charm bracelet.

    3. Cocktail-ing skin care products

    The new year has me thinking about skin care, like ACID TONERS. I just ordered the famous Biologique Recherche P50 1970 toner last week, so I’ve been doing this intense multi-step process in the morning and at night, and ya know what?

    I’m already over it.

    Even when I’m multitasking and doing other things, I get antsy and want to get on with my life as I’m waiting for two separate layers of toners dry, followed by three separate serums that take a couple more minutes each…

    My routine at the moment is up to 10 steps, and that’s JUST the morning.

    It might be overkill, I know, but I don’t want to give up yet. I have started mixing products to save a little time, though. I blend two of the serums together in my palm, then pat the concoction on my face and neck. Same with my moisturizers. I used to apply a layer of face oil, wait, then do a separate face balm, but now I just mix the oil and balm together and plop them on.

    In my perfect skin care scenario, I would only do three or four steps max. Dunno if I’ll ever get there, but I keep trying.

    4. Label makers

    I’ve been labeling everything with mine lately, and I mean EVERYTHING.

    Yeah, it looks totally geeky, but who cares? My life is way less chaotic when I have a label telling me exactly where something goes after I use it.

    Thank you, Epson Label Printer!

    I tend to put things in the most random places, BTW… Which is probably why I lost my glasses, haha!

    I got these organizers at HomeGoods about a year ago.

    5. Celestial Seasonings Honey Vanilla Chamomile Tea

    This stuff is so delicious! The honey and vanilla are strong and sweet, but they don’t overpower the chamomile.

    I got this to sip at night before bed, but I love it so much that I have a cup during the workday, too.

    What have you been loving lately? Your car’s butt warmers (shout-out to Ruchita)? Wearing red lipstick as a stain (KIM!)? Cats who give their assistants Sephora gift cards (Kitty Face)? Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂

    Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
