Say goodbye to another work week and hello to another beauty roundup! We’ve got a lot to tackle this week - from your favorite (and iconic) foundation getting its perfect match to a Parisian highlighter that will give you that romantic glow from within, there’s a ton of amazing new bits we need to discuss. With Urban Decay’s adorable addition and lipsticks fit for a queen, get ready to write down those wish list items!
You glow, girl!
If there's one place that embodies everything we want from a great highlighter, it would have to be Paris. Capturing the romance and effortless glam of the City of Lights in a pan of powder sounds dreamy, and Becca Cosmetics just made it happen! Following a successful collab with mommy model Chrissy Teigen, the brand teamed up with French fashion and beauty blogger Sananas to bring us yet another highlighter we never knew we needed. Inspired by the iconic Eiffel Tower and a warm sunset, the Becca Cosmetics x Sananas Parisian Lights Highlighter is a pinkish, rose gold highlighter bound for great things and tons of glow! The Eiffel Tower embossing is also a super cute detail! As of right now, the highlighter is solely available in Sephora France but we’re hoping Becca expands distribution soon!
