I wouldn't say it's strictly a highlighter because I'm a firm believer in multi use for expensive makeup. Though it works amazingly as a highlighter you could also use it as eye shadow or more specifically a highlight in the inner corner of your eyes.

I personally would use it strictly as a highlighter, since it is definitely shimmering. I think if you used it all over, it would be too much. However, if you get a color near your own skin tone, I'm sure it's possible to use it as a face powder. However, I don't think it would help with oil control or any of that.

Highlighter. This is way too reflective to use as a finishing powder! It's a beautiful highlighter, though, to use on targeted areas where you want light to bounce off your face to create a glow!

I think moonstone would be a perfect highlighter for you. I have them both, and opal definitely packs a lot of color. It looks like a shimmery blush or something. Moonstone has no pink or other colors, just a slight moon-like glow.

I think moonstone could look quite nice on you because there is no pink in it. There is some pink in opal. Since, your skin is medium, moonstone would probably show up beautifully on you. My skin is fair, so moonstone sort of disappears.

Without a doubt, moonstone. It has a nice golden tone that actually has blue undertones, so it won't make your olive skin too yellow or ruddy looking.

I have medium skin type in the summer and I love using this then as it compliments any bronzed glowing skin type look. I am 118 in MUFE and it works so lovely. I use this as a highlighter, a eyeshadow and anywhere I need that extra oomph. It's gorgeous.

I'm not sure when this will be available. i *think* they might be adding it to the permanent line now. If you do get the chance to get it, I definitely recommend it! On my lighter skin, it leans more towards a blush, but on tan to very deep skin tones it is a stunning rose gold highlight! Can't go wrong with Becca's quality, IMO.

The shade Rose Gold would be beautiful on deeper skin tones, especially if you prefer a highlighter that has more of a pink undertone to it. If you prefer more a gold highlight shade, we recommend trying the shade Topaz.

I am fair and have Moonstone. It is a very natural match for fair skin! If you wanted more of a pop, go with Opal -- and it would likely work for summer when there's more color in the skin (or over a blush in winter).

Hi There,
Moonstone would be beautiful on your fair skin. The color is soft with a light golden undertone. If your looking to add a bit of color to the area that your highlighting go for the Opal. To be honest you cant go wrong, as each of these colors work amazing on all skin types.

I have very fair skin and purchased Moonstone. It's a very light gold. it doesn't make you look "bronzy" at all. Adds more of a highlight to your skin. I'm planning on trying Opal next purchase. I do like Moonstone for my skin tone though. Hope this helps.

In my opinion, you should be fine! It's very versatile, meaning you can make it as sheer or opaque as you would like! It'll look beautiful on you and be a nice addition to your natural beauty! As far as what color...you may want to head to your nearest Sephora to really get a feel of what color you'd like. It's about your preference.

It is very shiny, I would suggest you use the BECCA
Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25+ creme liquid. It's very very natural and very buildable but it's most natural for a mature woman.
