The Beautiful Becca Ocean Jewels Highlighter Palette

UPDATE: Becca Cosmetics has unfortunately closed down. Check out other awesome makeup here!

When it comes to highlighters, I don’t think anyone can say they have too many. They are fun to use and add so much glow to an ordinary everyday look.

The new Becca Ocean Jewels highlighter palette is simply dazzling inside and out. When I first set my eyes on the Becca highlighter palette it was love at first sight.

Becca Ocean Jewels Highlighter Palette

Becca Ocean Jewels highlighter palette is a limited edition highlighter palette that consists of 5 different shades. The packaging is stunning, I am completely obsessed with it. I have always been into art and I love things that are original yet classy at the same time. The Becca Highlighter Palette is exactly that. It’s inspired by ocean jewels and the packaging literally looks like a jewel with its multi-faced sides and mirrored finish. It reflects the sun in the same way that a jewel does. The inside is also done really nicely, there is a big mirror on one side with the 5 highlighter shades on the other.

Becca has taken pressed powders to a whole new level. Unlike most pressed powders, the ones in the highlighter have a combination of powder and liquid which gives a much creamier texture to them.

What does this actually mean? It means that the colours are easier to apply and that they blend straight into your skin. They won’t ever look caked or unnatural.

It also means that you won’t ever look over shiny or shimmery because the colours blend seamlessly with the rest of your makeup.

Often highlighters are hard to blend in and they sort of look like they are sitting on top of the skin, however, with the Becca Highlighter Palette this won’t happen. The pigment simply adjusts to your natural colour.

The shades

colours of highlighting palette

The Ocean Jewels Highlighter Palette comes in 5 shades. They are:

1. Coral Crystal – A shimmering pink-peach colour which is infused with white gold pearl

2. Aquamarine – A cool blue with a touch of purple

3. Pink Pyrite – A shimmering pink infused with gold pearl

4. Sunstone – A sandy beige infused with gold pearl.

5. Citrine – A shimmering pale yellow infused with gold pearl

The colours can be worn alone or all together. They complement each other perfectly. To wear them together simply swipe the brush across all the colours and apply them to your face.

Personally, I’m more of a perfectionist when it comes to my makeup (and everything else too!), so I like to make sure both sides are exactly the same. This is slightly harder to achieve when using 5 colours so I like to stick to one at a time.

However, I can totally see some of my friends using the 5 colours together. It depends on your style, but both work great and look brilliant. The colours can also double up as other makeup, for example, Pink Pyrite looks beautiful as a blush too, and all the shades can be used on top of eyeshadows.

My Thoughts

I love how versatile the palette is. The colours are beautiful and they look really natural on the skin. In fact, they are exactly like their claim, the colours simply blend into your skin and match your natural tone.

I may not get around to using all of the colours on a regular basis but most of them I would use for an evening out or a party. The shimmer is perfect, it’s not too overpowering and out there, it’s more subtle, yet still gives you a beautiful shine!

  1. You’re absolutely right! A girl can never have enough highlighters and the Becca Ocean Jewels is just gorgeous! I love the colours and it is good to know it can be applied alone or together. I might be getting this highlighter after your review, but one question. How long does it last? I have quite oily face and will like to know the staying power of the highlighter before I purchase it. Anyway, great blog, keep it up!

    1. The Becca Highlighting Palette lasts pretty well, I haven’t had any issues with it fading away quickly. I recommend using a finishing powder before you apply the highlighter and this should help itlast longer and better.

      Good luck:)

  2. Hi Hollie, thank you for this post on the Becca highlighter palette. I love the colours in this palette and like the fact that you can use them all together or on their own is good to know.

    My daughter loves buying make-up and can’t resist looking every time we go into a shop that sells make-up such as boots. Her birthday is coming up soon so this is a good idea as I don’t know what to get her. Thank you again.

    1. Hi and thanks for stopping by! 

      I can totally relate to your daughter:) Its hard walking into a shop without checking out their makeup! I’m sure she’ll love the highlighter and it’s pretty useful too.
