Steal: BECCA Pressed Shimmer Powders at 50% Off

The BECCA Online store are having a 50% off sale of several soon to be discontinued items. I was delighted to the Pressed Shimmer Powders amongst the items on sale and promptly placed an order for Nefertiti and Princess.

I placed the order on Monday morning and my parcel arrived today. I thought I would share a few quick photos for anyone who was considering a purchase. I haven't had chance to play with them yet so this is just a look at the pans and some quick swatches. The lighting isn't good enough today for anything more.

My initial thoughts are that both colours are very pretty. The powder felt lovely and soft as I swatched. The swatches are quite a few passes over the skin to show the colour so they seem to offer a sheer but buildable colour. I think Nefertiti will make a nice highlighter shade and I imagine I will also be able to use it apply a sheen over blushers. I suspect I will use Princess as a blusher. My apologies that this isn't a more thorough review but I wanted to show you them before they sell out and are gone for good!

The Pressed Shimmer Powders are priced £15 each and there are four shades available. The other two shades are Gypsy - a bright golden pink and Odette - a golden peach pink. The other items that are on sale are the Fine Loose Finishing Powder (£13), Line + Illuminate Liners (£8.50) and Antibacterial Jumbo Pencil Sharpener (£5). Although I was momentarily tempted by the Line + Illuminate Liners, I remembered the problems I had with Belize. Admittedly, I do use the liner end quite a lot.

Postage cost £3.50 but shipping is free if you spend over £35 (sorry for my earlier gaff!). There are limited supplies so I think the sale will last as long as stock is available.

    1. There's no sales page on the UK site, you only see the reduced price when you search for the individual items. Maybe it's worth looking at the pressed shimmer powders just to see......

      .....I'm not really helping, am I? ;P

    2. The pressed shimmer powder is discounted on the UK site, not on the US site.

    3. Thanks for letting us know Suselew. It sounds like they were discounted on the US site a while ago.

    4. I think some of the other items you mentioned are, however. I just wish they would get their brush soap back in stock!!!!

    5. Oh no! I hope they get it back in soon too, it's a great product. I've just checked and it seems to be missing from Zuneta too.

    1. The powders felt so silky to the touch. Becca is a lovely brand and as you have been witness to, it's a handbag staple for me ;)

  4. I reviewed these a while back and I got them at a deep discount too here in the US. They are great shimmer powders.

  5. I like the look of Princess - it reminds me of NARS Douceur but with shimmer. I have Gypsy and Odette and like the refined shimmer look they give.

    1. I shall have to swatch Princess and Douceur and report back. I know Charlotte Lipglossiping has mentioned that she can use it as a bronzer. What is Gypsy like colourwise?

  6. Gypsy is a very pretty mid-pink with gold shimmer shining through. I like using it for a subtle colour or on top of other blush/bronzer to give a glow.
    I lost my usual camera for blogging but I have found it now so I will see if I can post some pics.
    Thanks Jane
