Becca Athena Pressed Shimmer Powder

The Athena PSP from Becca is a beautiful bronzy-gold color.  This pressed shimmer powder has a very metallic sheen, but no chunks of glitter.  Here's how it looks in the pan.

It doesn't look that exciting in the compact, kind of blah.  However, when I swipe it on, it comes to life.  It can be used as a highlighter or as a pale peachy-gold summery blush.  The pictures below are the swatches--heavy and then buffed out.

The pictures don't really do it justice.  It has a beautiful sheen that was hard to capture.

This is probably best for neutral or warm skins, but I think some cool toned girls could pull it off.  Here's a look at all of the PSPs. 

Next, I'll talk about my personal favorite, Gypsy (Surprise--it's pink!).  I hope you're enjoying the Becca products!  Did I mention, that my dear friend Lynn has a blog devoted to Becca products?  Please check it out--Shades of Becca.

    I feel like the Becca Pressed Shimmer Powders are like non existent on the internet and they are effin amazing!!! Out of all the highlighters Ive tried on this planet they come up the most natural. Its so sad that they are overlooked and highly highly underrated! I have Odette and Athena and dey go on my skin like sex!!! LOOL
