You know I have been loving the shade orange in all its forms and I have also confessed my love for highlighters.
So what happens when both these come together? Well Becca – Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle in Papaya/Topaz happens!
What it is: A four-in-one air-whipped soufflé formula that adds a flush of color to cheeks.
What it does:
This lightweight formula 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. Water-resistant, each pot combines Becca’s bestselling Beach Tint with a Shimmering Skin Perfector™ for effortlessly buildable, complexion-enhancing color, soothing hydration, and a youthful glow. It is formulated without parabens, sulfates. The soufflé is made by pulverizing Beach Tint and Shimmering Skin Perfector pigments and pearls into an ultra-fine powder, which is then combined with a proprietary blend of liquids, and whipped into a delicate soufflé.
Brown Algae Extract: Hydrates soothes, and reduces redness.
- Apply with a brush for a wash of color or with your fingers for a more intense pop of color.
- This sheer, luminous blush is easily buildable for customizable color.
- For best results, pair the Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé with The One Perfecting Brush.
$27 for 5.7 gm.
The product comes packaged in a small glass container with a metal cap – pretty much the same size as Chanel/Dior cream eye shadows. Yes! it’s that small. This is a product you actually might finish. The glass pot comes packaged in a black cardboard box.
My Experience with Becca Papaya/Topaz Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle:
Honestly, till some time back, I had not given this brand much thought. Then they released these beach tint shimmer souffles and I was intrigued. Apparently, the brand had this amazing product – Shimmering Skin Perfectors – highlighting liquids and equally renowned was their beach tints – waterproof blush stains. So they decided to put them together in this interesting cream product where they have paired each of their beach tints with a corresponding shimmering skin perfector – pretty much like Hourglass blushes. This review is for the shade “Papaya/Topaz.” Papaya being their beach tint shade and Topaz being their darkest and warmest shimmering skin perfector.
The product is a sponge-y, whipped cream kind of airy souffle texture, very lightweight and cushy to touch. The product is a melange of colors. I had wondered if I could pick the color portion and the highlighter portion separately with my finger, you really can’t! The container is so small that you cannot really achieve that. So you get a mix of the two together. In the pot, the color is a bright tangerine red paired with coppery bronze of opal (their darkest highlighting shade). Described as “tangerine red infused with golden bronze,” it’s a reddish orange with coppery sheen. The topaz gives a lot of warmth to the shade.
In the swatch, it comes out very pale. However, on cheeks, the color is quite clearly visible. I mention this because on all the swatches that I saw online, I felt the color might be too pale to show up on my skin. For reference, I am NC 30-35 in MAC.
Further, the color is buildable, it can be layered to show up more prominently. This is a shade which will look good on most skin tones and would be especially appealing on darker skin tones. Even lighter skin tones will be able to carry off the color easily, the topaz adds warmth but doesn’t really make the product muddy.
I apply the product with my fingers. My MAC#187 barely goes into the pot and the Beauty Blender definitely can’t reach inside. The product is cream and lightweight; however, once applied, it sets to a powdery finish. It goes on very smoothly and blends easily.
The longevity is amazing, it’s like a stain. It lasted on my skin for good 8 hours or so, pretty much the entire day. It’s supposed to be water resistant, I would love to give this a spin in the sweaty summer months.
Pros of Becca Papaya/Topaz Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle:
- Interesting red-orange shade with a coppery sheen.

IMBB Rating: 5/5
Becca claims this to be a 4 in one product – “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.” And it pretty much lives up the claims made by the Company! So it’s a total winner in my book. Love how easy it is to apply – dab it on and you are ready to run. This one’s found a place in my “to-go” bag! Tell me what you think about it.
