Becca's Royal Glow Highlighter Review



A few weeks ago I added to my collection Becca's  Royal Glow Highlighter a dazzling bronzed opal infused with shimmering gold pearl! 
Last month Becca Cosmetics has launched their Royal Glow a limited edition highlighter; Inspired by the beauty of the United Kingdom's iconic Crown Jewels and just in time for the royal wedding!



This limited-edition highlighter shade features a crown press and collector's edition packaging.
When I first saw Royal Glow in Lilly Pebbles Instagram stories, I knew I must have it, and without even thinking twice I followed all the links leading to this beautiful treasure. But quite soon I was set to disappointment because it leads to believe that it was a  John Lewis exclusive.
Well, I do not live in the UK, and John Lewis doesn’t ship internationally. There we go, the beauty industry does sometimes this thing where you permanently live in the wrong country
I was furiously scouting my contact lists trying to find someone that wants to get it for me as it wasn’t even possible to buy from the Netherlands it and ship it to a UK address. How annoying beauty industry can sometimes be!

Well, it happens I said thinking I have some relatives that live in London, so I figured I will contact them through Facebook and beg of them. I really don’t like asking people to do stuff for me, and I know they won't mind, but that’s just me.
Think I have forgotten about the matter  for  few days (thank you work stress and deadlines) and when I finally got back on it I just checked cult beauty first, and surprise, they have it
I purchase it immediately  and as it shows in my Insta Stories the following Monday I finally could ass my precious  royal glow to my collection but not before  taking pictures and swatch it  for the insta
As it turns out, it wasn't John Levis exclusive, as it is available at Cult Beauty also, nor Uk exclusive since it is available at becca.com at Beautylish  and soon will be on Sephora
In my humble opinion Becca makes the most exquisite highlighters out there, they are beaming  yet  buttery, and  you don’t look like you have sequins glued to your face
Highlighters can be tricky after a certain age, the list I  need is something to settle in my lines highlight my wrinkles.
A glow fit for royalty! Inspired by the mystique and beauty of the United Kingdom’s iconic Crown Jewels, this limited-edition shade features a crown press and collector’s edition packaging.

Royal Glow is definitely one of my favorite BECCA highlighters at the moment, right after Prosecco Pop, which reminds me to stop buying limited editions! Royal Glow lasts all day long, and it is so easy to layer when you want an even stronger glow, applies excellent with both dry and damp brush.
Iconic Becca highlighter formula i love that it is creamy and shimmery rather than glittery. Would absolutely recommend!
Do you have a  favorite shade of the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector? Are you on board with the new Royal Glow?

  4. I like that you share key ingredients about this product. It would not be right for me because I do not use products that use petrolatum as I tend to be allergic. That this highlighter is cruelty free is a plus.
