Ack! I had no idea the BECCA Light Chaser Highlighters were a limited edition item! These have been out for a few months and definitely caught my eye, but I thought they were a permanent product so put aside reviewing them until I got some of the more limited edition holiday items out of the way. I stand corrected – these are LE and they’re going FAST!
Sephora Canada doesn’t seem to have the Light Chaser Highlighters anymore, but Sephora USA still has two of the shades (and on sale for half off no less!) and BECCA’s own web site thankfully still has all six shades still available (also at half price!).
So what are these beauties? The Light Chaser Highlighters are BECCA‘s answer to the multi-colour highlighter craze. I’ve been raving on and on for a few years now about how much I love highlighter colours that are unique and different. I’m very much done with the champagne tones and icy white shades that are common (for my skintone). I want something more punchy, more vibrant and with some added colour in the mix. BECCA makes some of the absolute best highlighters on the market (Champagne Pop and Pearl are staples in my collection) so I was really happy to see them dip their toes in the multi-coloured highlighter game.
There are six shades in the collection, and I’ve got three of them featured in this post:
- Champagne Dream flashes Bellini: a peach tint with hints of brighter peach
- Rose Quartz flashes Seashell: A pale pink-purple iridescence
- Pearl flashes Gold: Iridescent white with a strong gold output
BECCA Light Chaser Highlighter Face Swatches
Of the three I tried, Champagne Dream flashes Bellini has the least colour payoff and sheen… in pictures. On the skin it actually beams a heck of a lot stronger and you do see shifts of peach as you move your face around in the light. (Refer to my colour swatch above for an accurate portrayal of the colour.) That being said, I would definitely say this one has the least amount of light bounce back when compared to the other shades I tried.
Rose Quartz flashes Seashell has more of that “bounce back” I’m referring to. You can definitely see the light is reflecting off my cheekbone. This shade is beautiful, slightly subtle, and provides a gorgeous pinky-purple sheen to the cheekbones.
My favourite of the lot, Pearl flashes Gold knows how to reflect the light perfectly! It’s a pale yellow shade that really lights up the cheekbones.
I’m really sad that these are limited edition because I feel like they’re a beautiful addition to BECCA‘s range of products. Since the brand is so well known for their highlighters, it seems like such a shame to have these beautifully coloured ones be available only for a limited time.
Of the shades I tried, Pearl flashes Gold was definitely the most reflective, so if you’re looking for something bright – go for that shade. Champagne Dream flashes Bellini was a bit more subdued on me, but I feel like it would look beautiful (and more reflective) on a far deeper skin tone than me.
So all that being said, if you want these, get them now because they’re disappearing fast! To reiterate, Sephora Canada doesn’t seem to have them anymore but Sephora USA still has two of the shades (and on sale for half off no less!) and BECCA’s own web site thankfully still has all six shades still available (also at half price!).
