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.

answer 4
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 personally own moonstone, opal, rose gold, and champagne gold and my favorite is opal. I have a light skin tone and think moonstone is slightly too light and not as glowy. Rose gold does look beautiful used with a light hand or as a blush topper on me. To me personally opal and rose gold are the same darkness, just with different undertones

Rose Gold and Topaz would look great on a pale complexion. Rose adds a subtle wash of color in addition to the glow (perfect around the cheeks). Topaz offers a deeper bronze tint with the luminous glow. Both would help to warm up a pale complexion.

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.

Sounds like you and I have the same skin tone and eye color! I use the shade Opal and I find that it gives the most gorgeous radiant glow. The pink and gold undertones perfectly accentuate our olive/medium yellow coloring.

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'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?
