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.

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.

Hello I think Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Opal (Pressed Powder form) could be suitable for anyone at any age. However if your skin is dry or mature you may want to give the liquid version a try. It is the exact same thing but comes in a bottle and is liquid (Sephora has it). It will not cling on to your skin in any unflattering way like the pressed version may. Also it will leave a more glowy and youthful finish (because it is liquid and is more moisturizing). Both are beautiful though!

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.

I would say the new champagne gold limited edition or topaz may be your best stand out shade for your skin tone. Although if you want something universal, Opal goes with nearly everyone's skin nicely.

Opal is best for your color as a natural highlighter or to use all over your face. As a highlighter, use it on your cheek bones, bridge of nose and cupids bow. You can also dust lightly over your blush to give your blush a sheer glow. I don't think you need to use this over your bronzer.

I have light to medium skin with yellow undertones and as beautiful as the champagne color looked in the compact I thought it looked a little too yellow on my skin! Opal surprisingly complimented my skin out of all of the shades. Topaz is a good one if you want bronze but Opal was the best hightlighter in my opinion :)

I'd say Rose Gold, but it depends what effect you're looking for. I have tried all the colors and I own Opal, Rose Gold, and Topaz. They all look gorgeous on medium tones. For medium skin this is my break down: Opal is going to give the most natural looking highlight while Moonstone is going to be the most obvious. Topaz gives a nice broze, sunkissed look. Gold Champagne gives a nice, very warm, very gold finish. Rose Gold gives a warm but natural highlight and works as a blush topper.

Opal and Champagne Gold would look beautiful on you! Rose Gold will differ from person to person. On me (NC40/42) Rose Gold is more peach (which is what I wanted), on my friend who is an NC25, it looks more pink, and she didn't really care for it. Opal works beautifully on both of us, as does Champagne Gold.

What color would work best?
I'm a medium skin with yellow to neutral undertones. I ordered moonstone but I think it might be too light. My face is also a bit red from acnes so I don't want anything that makes it look redder. Any suggestions if I should return moonstone for a different shade?
