I am a huge fan of BECCA’s products, particularly their Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed products. In fact, “Opal” is all my all-time favorite highlighter in the entire world and if I had to only keep a few beauty products for the rest of my life, it would be on my list. This product is brand new and limited edition. The Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in “Blushed Copper” comes in special metallic copper packaging. The product is meant to be used as an all-over bronzer, blush, and/or highlighter. How you use this product will honestly depend solely on your skin tone, and yes all skin tones can wear this product and shade. Swatches and tips are inside!
Blushed Copper is a creamy powder luminizer with the pigmentation of a blush. It’s actually the first “blush” product that they have created using the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formula. Quite frankly, I think BECCA has such a fantastic product formula on their hands with their highlighters, that an entire line of blushes would be a natural addition for them in the near future. I think beauty lovers would go absolutely crazy over them.

Blushed Copper is extremely pigmented. In fact, when I first used the product, I was not expecting it to be that opaque and rich in color. I was so impressed with the formulation. Their highlighters are extremely pigmented and soft as well, but this has the exact same perfect formula. It is extremely soft and creamy to the touch despite being a powder. A little bit on your finger or a brush will go a very long way and this compact of product will literally last you for a lifetime.
Blushed Copper FOR ALL SKIN TONES: I’ve been seeing a lot of bloggers and others say that this product is really made for medium to dark skin only, but I disagree. I think no matter what skin tone you have or what undertone your skin has, you can wear this shade. It will look different on every skin tone, which is what makes it so unique. If you’re fair-skinned, this will give you that rosy-bronzed look. If you’re light skinned, this will give you a shimmering copper look. If you have medium or dark skin, this would be more of a highlight for your cheekbones and facial structure. It’s all about making the product work for you. You can also use this product as an eyeshadow because it’s so pigmented, creamy, and blendable.
BLUSHED COPPER ON ME (light-medium skin tone with olive undertones): The most important thing to keep in mind with this product is to go light at first. I just barely dipped my blush brush into the product and it still deposited too much product. It’s an easy fix: just go back with a clean face brush and blend out the excess product. With “Blushed Copper” in particular, go extremely light handed. It blends out really well and adds a gorgeous rosy-copper sheen to your cheeks. I also applied it to my nose and around my forehead for an extra bronzed look.
Blushed Copper is a product you want to play around with. I think it would be absolutely stunning on the eyes as an eyeshadow. I also think using your finger tips to apply the product would be a great idea for picking up less product and using a lighter touch. This IS a product for all skin tones, however, all skin tones will find that it looks slightly different on them and may be used for multi-purposes.
