This is my HG highlighter. I think I have tried just about every highlighter (in every tone) on the market, including previous generations of Becca products. This one is very different from anything I've tried, and as close to perfect as I can imagine.
First, the color. I'm pale, so this is perfect for me. On my skin, it reads as a pale pink with a bit of iridescence. I found others too white, or too golden. The MILK one was far too blue/lavender. I especially like how this one complements pretty much ever blush color I own.
Second, the texture is amazing. While it's in a compact and obviously a powder, there's a creaminess that blends well. Prior to this purchase, I had been using Becca's liquid highlighter, but it really interfered with products beneath it. I apply this one with my fingertips so I can control amount and pat or feather it outwards. It never disturbs makeup underneath, and I can get a subtle pink glow just where I need it. It is build-able for sure, should a person want a more dramatic unicorn effect. But for very subtle highlights, it's as perfect as could be! (Though I highly recommend fingertips for gentle and targeted application)
Longevity on this product is pretty impressive, but I do find I need to re-touch after about 6 hours. A tiny dab on the tear ducts takes away the tiredz.
I've received so many compliments on my skin since using it (and there's really no change in my skin, so it has to be this product!).
I really hope this does not get discontinued!
