Review: BECCA Pressed Shimmer Powder in Gypsy

BECCA is a brand that I am just skimming the surface.  I have a few eyeshadow palettes but I have never ventured into anything else.  Mostly because the availability in my area is non-existent.  I didn’t live near a Sephora store when the brand was available there, etc…  I just purchased this Pressed Shimmer Powder in Gypsy.  I have been interested in trying these for quite some time.
BECCA’s packaging is so refreshing.  It is so different from the packaging of other brands.  I love seeing a brand that is easily identifiable by it’s packaging and isn’t overly replicated by other brands.  The two tones of this compact (metal and I am guessing rubberized plastic?) is quite nice and I like the weight of it.  

Mmmm… Look at that beautiful color.  It is such a beautiful bright plummy magenta pink color in the pan.

On the skin and in swatches it is such a nice soft cool toned pink with golden shimmer.  The swatch looks like  a pearlized pink that is highly shimmery but I assure you that on the cheek it is the most natural shimmer I have ever seen in a highlighter/blush.

You can see in the swatch below the hint of golden shimmer.  What I like about this product is that it seems to work on both cool and warm skintones due to the fact that it is a cool toned pink with a warm golden shimmer.  It is a perfect chameleon.  

My Newest Addiction Rating: ♥ (5 out of  5)  I tried hard to find a flaw with this Pressed Shimmer Powder, and failed miserably.  There are so many qualities that I enjoy about it.  In the words of Elizabeth Barrett Browning: “How do I love thee?  Let me count the ways.”
(a) It is great for both cool and warm skin tones.
(b) The shimmer is not over-the-top.  
(c) It can be used as a beautiful highlight.
(d) It can be built up to a beautiful luminous flush to the cheek. 
(e) It is wonderful layered over blush to make it more dimensional and glowy.
Do I really need to continue… I could…  Really!

I think I made my point loud and clear: IF YOU DON’T HAVE THIS GO AND GET IT!  It is such a nice product and I think it would make a fabulous addition to anyone’s stash.  Thank you for taking the time to stop by and see what I have to say!  :)  Tell me in the comments below what is something you have tried from BECCA and what did you think?  If you haven’t tried BECCA, tell me which product in which you are most interested!
