Highly pigmented, this smooth textured blush blends easily into my skin for a “just blushed” look. It’s easy to layer, but I opt for a light flush due to the nature of the shade. This lasted well on my combination/sensitive skin for approx 6 hours before I needed a touch-up, which was surprising as it can get oily when it pleases. I’ll be interested to see how this holds up when summer really kicks in though – everything slides off my face by lunchtime! Bearing that in mind, this isn’t recommended for very oily or blemished skins. This is also safe to use on the lips for a wash of colour so the multi tasking properties are useful too.Next up is BECCA Glossy Lip Tint, which comes in an impressive 22 shades. I tried Dalquiri a ‘shimmery fleshy pink’, which looked more like a shimmery apricot/warm coral to me when I swatched it. Becca Glossy Lip Tints come with a brush applicator, which enable you to place the lipgloss on your lips much better than sponge applicators do. It isn’t very pigmented, instead it performs as a translucent lipgloss. The shade was visible on my lips but it is what it says it is – a tint. This is great for those days when you want the minimal look and will also be great for summer when the ‘bronzed beach goddess’ make-up look takes centre stage once more.
Unlike a lot of lipglosses, this isn’t sticky which I appreciate each time the wind blows! It really leaves my lips feeling well moisturised but doesn’t really last that long, I ate a sandwich and it was pretty much gone, although there was a slight sheen left in its place and my lips still felt moist. Touch-ups are needed after meals, but I think that’s the general consensus with most lipglosses anyway.The BECCA line doesn’t come cheap but my first impressions are generally good. I’m looking forward to trying out more products, such as the famed Mineral Bronzing Powder.www.vexinthecity.com
