Becca Orbit (2) Light Shifter Dewing Tint Review & Swatches

Becca Orbit (2) Light Shifter Dewing TintBecca Orbit (2) Light Shifter Dewing Tint ($30.00 for one oz.) is a light-medium peach with warmer undertones and a luminous sheen. It had a lightweight, more gel-cream consistency that was fluid and spreadable without being too thin or heavy. It was easy to use as an all-over, tinted moisturizer or as a more targeted, standalone highlighter. I had no trouble applying it over the foundation; it didn’t lift or create any patchiness.

Formula Overview

$30.00/1 oz. – $30.00 Per Ounce

It’s described as a ‘sheer tinted moisturizer” so that the shades are “flexible” while giving an “ultra-dewy finish.” When I saw the promotional video and read through the ingredient list, it was very much called to mind other tinted luminizing products, often more billed as luminizers than tinted moisturizers. I initially purchased the three shades closer to my skin tone, in case it was more tinted moisturizer than luminizer. Still, I’d say these are tinted luminizers.

The brand states that it can be applied to the “high points” for “targeted radiance” or “all over the face for maximum dewiness.” To wear it all over would give a very high-shine, luminous finish that likely would be “too much” for some (though undoubtedly perfect for some). I think it compared favorably against other luminizers that are designed to be applied as a highlighter, mixed in with moisturizer/foundation, or used all-over, like Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter (which has a thinner consistency and higher amount of pearl) or AURIC Glow Lust (which has a thicker consistency, more of a sheen than as dewy).

The consistency was like a lightweight gel cream–not too runny but not too thick or heavy, so it spread readily across the face for all-over coverage. Still, it could be patted on the high foundation points (over bare skin or on top of the foundation) without being prone to lifting it.

The coverage was sheer to semi-sheer when I tried applying it all over my face, as it spread quite well, and I got more semi-sheer, buildable coverage when I patted it over the high points of my face with a fingertip. It was sheer when mixed in with base products, as anticipated. It is most flexible when using it mixed in with something, though, and you’ll want to align more closely with the undertone than strict depth for all-over usage.

It wore for eight to nine hours before looking more worn and faded when used alone or as a standalone highlighter (on top of cheekbones, bare skin).
