It’s formulated with intense pigment, feels lightweight on skin and has enough shades to cover all skin tones…

Yes, glowing skin in the summer may be the not-so-groundbreaking equivalent to florals in spring; but we can’t help sweeping on layers of shimmer to make our skin glow.

Highlighters have skyrocketed into popularity over the last 5 or so years, meaning the market is flooded with a wide range of powders, balms and liquids, all promising to deliver glowing skin. But there’s one highlighter in particular that has earned cult status.

A recent study by The NPD Group found that Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter, £30, is the number one best-selling highlighter in the U.S – and with good reason.

The buttery and lightweight formula glides on seamlessly, leaving behind a soft, luminous finish. Plus, it comes in 14 shades – an unusually high number for highlighters – all of which are created with undertones to make them suitable for different skin tones.

Among these shades is Becca’s bestselling option Champagne Pop, a flattering golden champagne shade, created in collaboration with influencer Jaclyn Hill. When the highlighter launched in 2015, Sephora.com sold a staggering 25,000 units in the first 20 minutes alone. As a result, Becca decided to move the limited-edition highlighter into its permanent line-up.

If you’ve been convinced to give it a go, pick from one of the 14 shades below – you won’t regret it.
