Becca Beach Tints: Watermelon and Fig
Cream blushes are wonderful for creating that effortless, natural makeup look and Becca's Beach Tints do just that. Sephora was doing an offer awhile back for two mini beach tints in Fig and Watermelon for $20. Considering the usual price for a full sized tube is $25 and I almost never finish any makeup products, this was a great way to try two shades for less than the price of one!
A full size tube contains .24 oz while the minis are .14 oz each. In the end, you're getting more product for less money. The regular sized tubes are a tiny bit larger but both sizes are great for tucking into your purse or travel makeup bag. These tints are scented and you can definitely smell the fruity, floraly notes. Once applied to the cheeks you can't really tell though.
Watermelon is a bright pinkish red while Fig is a muted brown with hints of pink. You only need a tiny bit for Watermelon to show up on the skin while Fig needs a bit more work since the color is so natural. These are buildable creams so I would suggest applying a little and blending then applying more if needed.
Once sheered out, you can still see how strong Watermelon can be while Fig virtually disappears on my skin. At my lightest, Fig is a very natural looking blush shade and you can barely tell I'm wearing anything at all. When I have more dramatic eyes or lips, Fig is a nice blush option to add some contour to my face without looking obvious. Watermelon is the more "fun" shade that would steal the show if I'm sporting little to nothing on my eyes and lips.
This limited edition set is still available on Sephora's website for purchase and I would highly recommend it if you are interested in trying out Becca or if you love a nice cream blush. What are your favorite products from Becca? Do you have a favorite cream blush formula?
