Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed: Golden Mint

By now it’s pretty clear I’m at Becca Beauty Junkie. I own three highlights (now four), two split pans, one bronzer and one eyeshadow palette. And out of all the Becca compacts out there, there one I wanted most in my collection was one I couldn’t get in Australia – Golden Mint.

Becca Sunlit Bronzer Bali Sands review

My duo-chromatic makeup items
