Review: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector vs. Seventeen Skin Wow

Tuesday, 11 March 2014

When I heard rumblings of Seventeen producing a highlighter that rivaled one of my favourtive products Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector, I knew I would have to pick up this product to see if a drugstore product could live up to one of the high end greats. 

Now first lets compare the basics. Price wise the Becca is quite luxury as it retails for around €45. Contrast to this the Seventeen Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter is a steal at only €7.59, a massive saving. With the Becca highlighter, there is 50ml of product which is 20ml more that the Seventeen. Becca also offer different colours for different skin shades which is pretty awesome where as Seventeen only have the one colour. Becca also has SPF of 25 which the Seventeen product doesn't. As for formula, Seventeen's was a more running product and also a pinker shade than my Becca shade. 

But does the Seventeen highlighter live up to the Becca one? Well, amazingly yes! Both products on the skin are remarkably similar. You can use both as a base, as a general highlighter, or mixed in with foundation and the Seventeen preformed just as well as it's more expensive counterpart. My skin looked really luminous after using the Seventeen highlighter and it gave the perfect glow.

I'm quite shocked at how similar these products are. I thought I would never be swayed from the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector but the Seventeen Wow Skin Highlighter has really impressed me. It is a very close dupe that is a must have for any glowing skin loving girl.
