Okay, so there may be some issues with my tea party... Mainly, there's no tea (I'll level with you, those are actually espresso cups) and there are no actual macarons. Hey, I live in a small town. If I was able to procure macarons, I'm willing to bet they would not only be exorbitantly overpriced but also not so great. "Well, what does this lame-o non-existent-tea tea party have then?"  Hold the attitude, we have something better than both tea and cookies...

'BECCA’s award-winning highlight powder features an ultra-buttery texture that melts into skin for the ultimate high-impact glow. Achieve the perfect glow and create a range of looks wherever you go with these travel-size favorites.'

Mini highlighters! As much as I love both tea and cookies, I might just love highlighters a little bit more. Especially the super cute Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter Mini Macaron Set. For minis they have the longest name, but it can be forgiven given how perfect this set is.

Packaged up in a gilded box, the macarons highlighters are securely tucked in a little plastic sleeve much like an edible treat. Coincidence or purposeful design? I'm not sure, but I'd like to think it was intended. The cute little highlighters share the same elegant, metal design as their full-size Shimmer Skin Perfector siblings, right down to a little mirror in the compact. They're weighty and solid feeling, giving them a more quality feel than I tend to expect in mini items. it's a really nice touch.

While this set is limited edition, but the shades are all permanents in the Becca collection. It may not be perfect if you're already a collector, but if you're like me, and have been wavering over which shade you need, this is a great way to try some of the most popular options:

  • Opal: Becca calls this a neutral white gold with pink pearl, but on my skin it reads more golden-bronze. It looks rather deep in the pan and when swatched, but on the skin, is gorgeous. It reminds me of MAC Soft and Gentle, which doesn't look like it should work on light skin tones, but just does. 
  • Vanilla Quartz: soft gold with with a stunning pink pearl shift
  • Rose Quartz: pale pink with a golden pearl sheen
  • Prismatic Amethyst: soft lavender shade with a violet and rose duo-chrome effect. 

The set includes shades that will suit a wide variety of skintones, including those of a paler kind. I am that kind, and find many sets / palettes that pop up during the holidays offer a bunch of gorgeous shades, but only one or two for the palest and deepest skintones. I can't speak to deeper tones, but all of these shade will work on light skin. That said, Becca claims their formula is a unique with 'multitoned, luminescent pearls that adjust to your skin’s undertones and amplify your natural radiance' Magical? I don't know, but these really do give a stunning, visible glow to skin without being glittery or looking like a harsh stripe. And no, my swatches are not even close to capturing the beauty of these.

Overall, I have to say that Im thrilled with this set! The shades are all gorgeous (although, Vanilla Quartz & Prismatic Amethyst are my favourites) and you're getting a great value. The set obviously makes a great gift as is, but can also be broken up for gift add-ons or stocking stuffers. What do you think? Would like to gift or get this? Do you have a favourite shade from the Becca range?
