Becca Cosmetics has launched the limited edition Be A Light Face Palette $46 designed to achieve the perfect, most natural contour and highlight ever! If you’ve been afraid of contouring, these compacts make it a breeze with a highlighter, blush, blurring powder and contour. The palette even comes with a guide to show you the placement of each making it easy-peasy. You can brighten, contour AND add color. There are two shade options available, Light to Medium and Medium to Dark.

The Be A Light Face Palette is ideal for adding depth and dimension to the face while blurring imperfections and still looking natural with innovative Light Diffusing Technology in 4 finishes.

The Be A Light Face Palettes come in huge rose gold mirrored compacts. The palette features the brands new Sheer Glow Filter Powder. The texture is super soft and smooth with a natural finish. The powders are sheer but definitely buildable. Both the brightening and blurring powders work well as setting powders and add a pretty luminous glow. All the powders are very soft so don’t dig into them, just dab lightly–you will get some kick up in the pan but the result on the face is worth it.

The Light to Medium shade is perfect for my light complexion. The highlight is a pretty champagne beige shade, the blurring powder a bit deeper beige, the blush a lovely peachy pink and the contour a warm bronze.  I love the new Sheer Glow Filter Powder formula, they are subtle—no shimmer and nothing is over the top. All the shades have just the right amount of glow–not matte, not shimmery–just a lovely candlelit glow.

The Medium to Deep palette has the same brighten, blur, blush and contour powders just in deeper shades: Neutral peach, warm sand, warm bronze, warm copper, and rose gold pearl.

I went downtown to have lunch with friends and ended up going on a hike before we got to the lunch part. I had on the new IT Cosmetics Matte CC cream and this palette. It was about 89° and I still had a nice glow after the hike, so the powders do have great lasting power.

The packaging of the palettes is so pretty and luxe. Each palette is housed in a rose gold compact with the quote ‘Be a Light’ in script on the cover. The shades do have some separation so you can easily pick up one color at a time with a brush. The blushes are a variegation of colors mixed together–the light palette a peachy pink, the medium palette a coral shade.  Each palette has an inspirational message printed on them, my light palette says Be Fearless, the medium palette says Be In The Moment.

Bottom Line: I love the Light/Medium Becca Be A Light Face Palette. It delivers a lovely subtle luminosity to the skin along with a beautiful blush and has everything you need for complexion perfection! Oh, and the palettes go beautifully with the BECCA Glow Glosses–I’m wearing BECCA Glow Gloss in Tigerlily.

You can find the Becca Be A Light Face Palettes now at Nordstrom, Sephora, Ulta Beauty and Becca Cosmetics. Have you tried them yet?
