New for the 2014 Holiday season is the Becca Glow To Go ($25) Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlights set. It includes three mini tubes of the popular Becca liquid highlighters in three different shades; Pearl, Opal and Champagne Gold.
If you’re not familiar with the full-sized versions of these, they are liquid highlighters. They each have a different semi-sheer color to them that blends out to give the most beautiful, natural looking glow to your face.
Usually you’ll find these highlighters packaged in a foundation type bottle with a pump top. These spotlights come packaged like lip glosses with twist tops and removable wands. This packaging makes it convenient to dab onto the areas of your face that you would like to highlight and easily blend it out with your fingertips.
With the full-sized versions being so expensive, Glow To Go makes it affordable to try a few different colors for a fraction of the cost. I think the tubes are generously sized and will last me quite a while. You need very little, a few dabs will do ya.
But is this set an actual good value? Not really. The full-sized perfectors contain 1.7oz for $41 with each of these spotlights containing only 0.17oz each. If you do the math you’ll see that each spotlight tube of product only has a retail value of $4.10. That makes the whole set only worth $12.30.
I guess you could argue that the other half of the $25 price tag goes towards the packaging but I’m not buying that. I still think it’s an awesome set though and even included it in my Holiday Gift Guide Top 10 Under $25. The colors are gorgeous and I’m glad to finally add them to my collection.
