Allure magazine's favorite lip & cheek tint- BECCA Beach Tint, reminds me of water color paints with similar-looking tubes. Though I never paint anymore, I have a brand new box of the cuties just coz. How amazing would it be to be able to use those on our faces as well?! :)
BECCA Beach Tint is a beautifully blendable crème stain for cheeks and lips that suits all skin types. Kiss-proof and water-resistant, it dries to a perfect, streak-free, non-greasy and non-drying finish. Layer it under powder blushes, bronzers, lip balms, and lip-glosses for added intensity.
- 2-in-1 crème stain for cheeks and lips
- Deliciously scented
- Oil Free, Streak Free, and Water-Resistant
- Contains anti-oxidant vitamin E
- Preservative and paraben-free
Available in 7 shades: Strawberry (warm orange red), Peach (warm orange pink), Grapefruit (pale coral pink), Fig (tea rose pink), Watermelon (bright pink), Raspberry (deep berry pink), Guava (bright coral pink)
What I like about it: It's a cream formula, similar to an eye cream, so it doesn't stain my fingers or look blotchy if not blended quickly- two things which bother me when it comes to other gel formula lip & cheek stains. It's really easy to blend evenly. Though it looks subtle on my cheeks giving them a natural-looking flush, it can look opaque on my lips without drying them or emphasizing the lines. It really is water-resistant & lasts for hours- perfect for the beach & swimming pool. Packaging, of course, is undeniably cute, convenient & travel-friendly. What I like most about it? It smells like bubblegum!
What I don't like about it: Price is on the higher side. 25 EUR (Rs.1617) is steep for such a tiny thing (it's the same size as my ring finger). I guess one can justify that by saying, the little tube will last a really long time because you need very little product every time, since it's very pigmented.
Below I'm wearing Strawberry on my cheeks & lips. At first, I was kinda scared of the 'warm orange red' shade, but look.....
Price: 25 EUR (Rs.1617)
