Becca's infamous highlighters have been a bomb since its release. So much so that people have been meaning to try it in the eye area but the company's reply on whether it's safe to use as eyeshadow left the fans hanging.

The brand's Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter has been on the market since 2015 and there were a lot of raves about it. Recently, it has gain a lot of traction, specifically in Reddit, when one fan, @Berryception, asked Becca if the product could be used as an eyeshadow.

Of course, safety should be the top priority in using beauty products. So the fan's question is more than understandable and is actually a legitimate concern. While one may expect a straight yes or no answer from Becca Cosmetics, the team's reply became a pot of loopholes.

Confusing Reply

The Redditor got a response that doesn't seem to answer anything at all. Of course, the user shared this with the thread and most found the vague reply amusing and hilarious.

"You are more than welcome to use the highlighters as eyeshadow," Becca's customer support representative replied to her.

It sounded like an assurance, to say the least. But while that may be taken as a go-signal to use the highlighter as an eyeshadow, the next statement in the email is clearly saying Becca Cosmetics is not vouching for its use anywhere near the eyes.

"Please keep in mind they are not formulated for the eyes and we are not sure what reaction you may have," the email continued.

That does mean that people willing to try the product for their eyes will be the first ones to know if there will be a reaction to the product? Or, is Becca simply saying customers have the right to try and put it anywhere they want to because in the first place, they bought it, and that they aren't sure of what it'll do to their skin?


The confusing statements caught the eyes of the fans who poked fun at the vague reply. Some made their own version of Becca's reply and other Redditors laughed at what became a comical response.

"Dear Becca, can I use your highlighters as eyeshadows? Becca: I DON'T KNOW, CAN YOU," one user said.

Just to be safe, customers should keep the highlighter away from the eyes and should only apply onto the cheeks as there is no clarification from the brand as of writing. After all, there have been no reactions or controversies surrounding the use of Becca's product on the cheeks, but that doesn't mean it is safe to use in the eye area, including near the tear ducts.
