This is the first Becca product I ever bought, and one of the few products I’ve purchased without being able to do my usual pre-product-purchase research to make sure it’s well worth spending my money on. When I saw this release and the campaign photos for it, I just couldn’t resist! I totally took a gamble on this Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé in Watermelon/Moonstone and it definitely paid off.
This product mixes Becca’s insanely popular Beach Tint’s with their Shimmer Skin Perfectors into one pot that promises to give you a hydrating buildable color with a youthful glow. It comes in 6 shades, is water-resistant, and also claims it “packs four must-have qualities into one formula: a powder to add a pop of color, a stain to give staying power, an illuminating highlighter, and a cream to deliver a flawless finish.”
So basically this little pot is supposed to be magical– and at $27 a pot, it better be!
The packaging itself is OK, nothing too fancy but definitely not cheap. It may bug some people that it’s in a pot and kind of hard to get a brush into– but it doesn’t really bother me because I actually prefer to apply this with my fingertips and then blend it in with a stippling brush. It goes on opaque and can be blended out so it’s more sheer…or you can build it up if you want something more intense, which is great because it does stain so there’s no danger of applying too much– unless you whack on A LOT.
I almost picked up Guava/Moonstone shade because it’s a straight up coral and we all know how obsessed I have become with all thing coral…but I decided to go for Watermelon/Moonstone instead, because it’s described as a coral-red, and I don’t have any other cheek products in that shade. After testing it out, I would say it’s more of a warm-toned pink coral, which is just fine with me!
The texture of this stuff is so unusual! It’s squishy and the only thing that it even slightly resembles is the Josie Maran Cheek Gelée— but this product has taken it to a whole new level. It’s like if the Josie Maran Cheek Gelée and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush had a fantastic shimmer baby, it would be this.
Speaking of it’s shimmer, it gives a nice highlighting glow without having big bits of glitter and without emphasizing your pores. I made Edward come out in the sun and see if he could see any glitter on my cheeks and he said no. It also has a slight fruity scent in the pot, but it doesn’t linger once it’s applied. It has a good lasting power and hung around for at least 7 to 8 hours on me. Based on this particular shade, I would definitely say this product delivers on all it’s claims and I’m so happy I picked it up.
This is what it looks like on. I just love it!!! I makes me feel like a glowy beach babe or something and I cannot get enough of it! I highly recommend this for anyone who might be interested in feeling like a glowy beach babe– it’s amazing. If you’re super oily however, you may not like this because it’s so glowy.
What do you think? Will you be giving this a try?
