Becca Pressed Shimmer Powders - Gypsy & Odette

I do like the Becca UFO shape:)
The pressed shimmer powders I think were my first purchases from Becca, I was just drawn to the prettiness of the shimmer and I consider these to be more refined then some of the other shimmer powders in my collection as they are totally non-glitzy and not particularly frosty.

Becca Pressed Shimmer Powder - Gypsy

Gypsy is a very pretty mid-pink with a beautiful golden shimmer. When applied to the skin, the pink isn't as strong as it appears in the pan as the gold shines through the pink equally.
Sometimes I use this on it's own for a subtle pink/golden glow but I like to also apply this on top of other pink shades to intensify the colour.

Odette is warm bronzy golden shade that again looks darker in the pan but when applied looks more golden. This does give a little bit of depth so I kind of use it as a subtle golden bronzer.  This one I use more on it's own as I like the warm glow it gives to the skin.

Top - Gypsy, Bottom - Odette
I think that these are quite deceptive as they do appear a bit different from the pan, but I like the versatility in way they can be layered with other products to subtly enhance the tones in powder.

Becca have the Pressed Shimmer powders currently at 50% off as they are soon being discontinued, I'm hoping they will have an alternative to these as it would be a shame to see them go completely.
