    I ended up with three of the new light chasers. So far I have just been testing out Champagne Bellini which is the one I was most excited for given my skin tone and love of peach. Personally, it doesn't disappoint. It is really wearable and can easily be built up for a more prominent highlight. I love the duochrome pink effect, especially because it isn't in your face ( or at least I'm not wearing it so that it's blinding). These are smaller than the regular becca highlighters, but I don't mind at all actually because the packaging is beautiful and functional. The formula seems to be the same quality as other becca highlighters and while I recognize that there are likely other similar and cheaper products on the market, I don't have any yet (have yet to purchase any of the Mac ones) so I plan on keeping the Champagne Bellini one for sure.

    This is very helpful. I don't care about other brands having similar products. I wanted to know if these perform similarly to the standard Becca highlighters b/c I enjoy that formula, so thank you for this info!

    I wore the champagne one as an eyeshadow yesterday and loved it. It really brightened up my eyes. The shift is noticeable but not over the top. I can't say the same for opal - I returned it to Sephora. The jade shift was a little too obvious and green for my liking

    I also purchased 3 of the glosses - champagne dreams, opal and rose quartz. I've only tried the champagne over lipliner and it's a winner! it's more pigmented than i thought. the only downside is as it wears off it does leave some sparkles on the lips. I can't decide if I'm keeping all 3 - it all depends how i like the other 2 colors when i try them

    I bought Opal and Amethyst powders. I'm in love with Opal and underwhelmed by Amethyst. I haven't checked out the math yet, but a couple of reviewers were suggesting that the per ounce is actually better for these even if the pan looks physically smaller. I do not think the formula is on par with their best, but it's solid on me. I agree that these are subtle but buildable.

    I think Becca messed up by not having reviews out there ahead of time. Tons of people bought blind, and it looks like they will have a lot of returns as a result, which I hate. I didn't buy the glosses because of the lack of lip swatches.

    Speaking of swatches, here are Temptalia's Sneek Peeks:

    Sneak Peek: Becca Light Chaser Highlighter Photos & Swatches

    Sneak Peek: Becca Liquid Crystal Glow Glosses Photos & Swatches

    Based on these, I'm debating Topaz or Amethyst glosses if the formula seems nice.

    I ordered the Champagne Bellini gloss and will report back once it arrives and gets some wear time.

    Her swatches make me want to buy two more of the highlighters. I have only played a little with the 3 I ordered but I like them so far and can't wait to actually wear them.

    I have several of the new highlighters and love the ones I have tried so far.

    I agree--they did an event with some instagram beauty people but it was almost impossible to see the product on their skin. Either they had used it in combination with another highlighter, they were really far from the camera or the lighting was too dark to pick it up. It looked like they were at an event and had fun, but it made it hard for me to see. Good, clean swatches are the way to go with a product launch in my opinion.

    The pearl and peach look nice.

    I'm currently interested in 4-5 of these. I'm hesitant about the Opal and the Amethyst. I love Becca HLs and the packaging so I will be ordering when they launch here. What were the other 2 shades you ordered? Glad you love the Champagne Bellini. The MAC EDSF are really nice too I have all 4. I favour Beaming Blush and Show Gold.

    I have the Champagne, Rose quartz and Pearl light chasers. All three are winners for me. I tried the Opal and was really hoping I'd love it too - it is so stunning in the pan, but the green shift was too cool for my skintone. It just didn't look right. Too bad really because it is so unique! I love the other three though. Glad you've been enjoying the Mac EDSF'S!

    Nice picks! I think I will order those three online first as they look quite safe and test the others in store. Topaz looks like a maybe for now. My highlighter collection is so out of control. I just posted some swatches of a new HL launch in the Lancome Love thread and I like 4 out of 5 of the swatches and I think you will like most of them too!

    The Becca Bronzers just launched on Sephora AU. I like Bali Sands and Capri Coast but I'll wait for the chance to swatch in store first. I think Bali Sands might be nice for my fair skin however I'm concerned it may be too light to make any impact.
