Becca Beach Tint - Lychee

12:30:00 PM mandy 14 Comments

Hard to believe right? A makeup review coming from me. I have never formally did one of these on the blog. But! This is the first step to trying to post more. Hope this will be of help to someone! :]
I've been wanting to get these since I saw them at a Duane Reade a couple of years ago. But the price always stopped me from doing so. $25 per little tube leaves quite a big dent in my wallet. When my $15 off $50 from Sephora came around I knew this was definitely something I wanted to finally get. I do not regret this purchase at all. I'm glad I held out until now because I was able to get this lovely (recently released) color.

Product Description & Ingredients:
The ingredients list is relative short. The ingredients on the packaging shows what makes up ALL the available Becca Beach Tints, not just the one you buy. (Lychee is the last on the long list.) There doesn't seem to be any oil in the product (like the packaging claims), but there is dimethicone (a silicone) and mica in the product. I know some people can be allergic or sensitive to these so be careful!

Places to buy:
✻ certain Sephora stores
✻ Sephora.com
✻ Duane Reade (in NYC)
✻ BeccaCosmetics.com

Packaging:
It comes in a 7mL or 0.24 fl. oz. plastic tube that has a colored stripe on the tube which correlates with the color of the product. I don't mind the packaging at all. Especially since the consistency of the product is a bit liquidy sometimes it helps to be able to squeeze the product out of a tube. It is very easy to control how much product you want to get out. I haven't experienced any of it spilling out by itself either. Perhaps as I come to an end with the product, it'll be a little harder to get every last bit of product out of the tube. But that's a problem that I will have to deal with when the time comes. The one thing that really bugs me is the color name cannot be found on the actual tube. If I had more than one of these tints I think I would have a difficult time remembering what is what, particularly for the blog or if I wanted to recommend a shade to someone. Especially since some of the other colors in the line do look a bit similar.

Product:

Lychee is a very bright hot pink color straight out of the tube. But don't let that scare you!! It goes on surprisingly natural. It can definitely be built up to the bright shade though. Unlike the usual cream blushes, this blends out to a matte finish. Unlike liquid tints, this is much easier to apply without leaving blotches/stained dots of product on the cheeks.

On a winter day, without setting or blotting my face, I wore it for maybe 10+ hours. Sure the blush lost some of it's initial intensity but it still looked pretty great in my books. Keep in mind this was when I wore glasses with frames that did not touch my cheeks at all. I can assume that if you're a bit oilier, blot your face more often, or have frames that touch your cheeks the wear time will surely not be as long. The good thing is there is such a thing as powder so you can set over top with. By putting a light layer of powder, the color can still show through and the blush can also last a bit longer than when without.

The price is definitely not cheap. But I need so little each application for both cheeks. I think I'll be able to get a lot of usage out of it. This is also a dual purpose product, for both the lips and cheeks. I've tried it once for the lips just for fun. As it does on the cheeks, the same goes for the lips. This applies matte. I would not recommend it for those with dry lips! Do remember to moisturize and it may help a little. The alternative would be to exfoliate, apply the Becca Beach Tint, and then apply a lip balm or gloss over top throughout the day for a natural lip look.

I really want to get some of the other shades as well! Definitely not immediately, but in the future I think you guys will for sure see another one or two in a haul post. Has anyone tried these and have a particular shade they really love?

Disclaimer: These are just the results I had while using the product. Remember, everyone else's skin is different!! What may have worked for me, may not work for you & what may not have worked for me, may work for you. Try the product at your own risk! I bought this product with my own money and am in no way connected to the companies mentioned. This is my honest opinion!

  4. Read your comment! Yea I sure hope I'll adapt to that tough fast paced environment. Dealing with customers is hard work, especially sick ones that are cranky and need their medicine out quickly. and yup it was a long journey going from marketing to accounting to pharmacy technician. Weird road huh lol. And it's okay if you change your major a few times. That's what I did when I was in college and most people end up in different jobs than they were intended to do after college.

    and that cheek tint looks pretty! Though I've never been a fan of blushes that come from a squeeze tube. I've always had a hard time with cream/gel blushes lol but wow lasting 10+ hours is great. Usually my powder blushes fade by then, but lately I've been finding myself not wearing blush because I'm trying to hide my red acne scars through my foundation and putting on a pink blush would make my cheeks red again haha. counterproductive xD

    anyway, thanks for the comment! see you later! :)

    1. Changing majors is so intimidating..(if that makes sense >__<)
      Ah but blushes are so pretty! I just ignore my acne scars and put blush on anyways :P

  5. Yea my nails tend to grow pretty fast too so I usually clip my nails inbetween but still keep the nail polish. One bad thing though is that it's hard to remove them without damaging your nails somehow. Usually I scrape them off with my own nails--yikes; pretty bad I know. But the other option is to soak it in acetone for a while or go to the nail salon to get it rubbed off. I hardly ever go to the nail salon so that's why I do Shellac when I go, but usually I change my polish every week whenever I remember to paint my nails

  8. I'm a big fan of Becca cream blushes but I've never tried this Beach Tint. The color you chose is very pretty and it's nice that it wore so well.
