Just recently I seem to have plunged face first in to an epic love affair with BECCA Cosmetics and I can’t see it ending any time soon. The love affair began when I tried the amazing BECCA Ever-Matte Primer (my new HG primer by the way – sorry Laura Mercier) and has since continued in to the realms of blusher and highlight. Whilst perusing Space.NK (as you do, every day – just me?), I stumbled upon the BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés and I instantly knew that I had to have Watermelon/Moonstone in my make up stash – it had my name plastered all over it. It is described as a “coral red infused with pale gold” and it is exactly that. It is blush/highlight hybrid, adding the coral red colour of the BECCA Beach Tint in Watermelon whilst adding the pale gold highlight of the BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Moonstone to create a gorgeous pop of colour (yes I did just say one of those annoying beauty blogger buzz words but it was appropriate) and a lit from within glow. Watermelon/Moonstone has really warm undertones that really compliment my yellow-ish skin and the colour is so dreamy – it is right up my street. I am a sucker for the corals and reds when it comes to blusher – they are very ‘Erin’. This air-whipped mousse to powder formula offers a completely opaque colour upon application that can be blended out more sheer or built up for a bolder look. I prefer to apply this with my fingers so that I can catch the right amount of colour/highlight before blending it out with a brush. BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés are similar to Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in the make up of the product and the idea behind them BUT the texture of both products are poles apart. The Shimmer Soufflés have a super creamy formula that is wet to touch but quickly turns in to powder once it comes in to contact with the skin making it incredibly easy to work with. This stuff is heaven sent I tell you and I have been using it every day since it landed on my door step. It really transforms your skin, giving it a gorgeous healthy glow with just the right amount of colour. It has been ideal for Summer and I will be taking this on holiday with me in two weeks as it is totally water resistant. Yes, you read that right – water resistant. Show me the way to the pool… I think it is also going to be a pretty safe bet for Winter too. I mean c’mon, who wants dull and lackustre looking skin throughout Winter? Not I.
There are five other shades to choose from and I assure you that you need at least one in your beauty arsenal.
Fig/Opal – Nude infused with golden opal.
Lychee/Opal -Bubblegum pink infused with golden opal.
Guava/Moonstone – Coral infused with pale gold.
Papaya/Topaz – Bright tangerine red infused with golden bronze.
Raspberry/Opal – Raspberry infused with golden opal.
Each of the blush/highlight combinations have the most divine scent that matches their fruity name. They smell amazing. I am already eyeing up my next purchase…
