It’s been seven months since makeup lovers were devastated by the news that Becca Cosmetics, arguably a vertebra in the backbone of the beauty industry, would be going out of business. It was as if the lights went out — literally. Some of our all-time-favorite highlighters, like the Readers’ Choice Award-winning and best-selling Shimmering Skin Perfector, would be disappearing from shelves, never to reflect on our cheekbones ever again. But in an unforeseen plot twist, another long-loved makeup brand is swooping in to save the day — or, more specifically, to save a couple of products.
Instead of letting the world become a slightly less radiant place, Smashbox has announced that has adopted two of Becca’s most popular products. “Psst…we have MAJOR news to share. @beccacosmetics most-loved products have found a new forever home with @smashboxcosmetics,” the brand wrote on Instagram. “The lights shine on with Under Eye Brightening Corrector and Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop.” The highlighter will also be available in the shades Opal, Moonstone, Rose Quartz, and Chocolate Geode.
Repackaged to show a new “Smashbox ❤ Becca” logo, both new permanent additions to the Smashbox family will be the same formulas already adored by Becca fans. The Under Eye Brightening Corrector offers peachy, pearlescent, full-coverage color correction in three shades (light, medium, and dark) for making dark circles disappear, and the famous Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighterbeautifully blends into skin to create a gorgeous glow on a wide variety of skin tones.
Both products have been sold out for a while, but you don’t have to wait long before they become available again under the Smashbox umbrella. The Under Eye Brightening Corrector and Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter launch at Ulta Beauty, Sephora, and Macy’s on October 1.
