This review will be on the Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé in the shade Raspberry/Opal.
About The Product:
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.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
My Experience with Becca Raspberry/Opal Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle:
This product comes in a small tub which is TINY(!), like the size of an eyeshadow pot. Considering how much this little blush costs, I do feel it is overpriced and expensive. The tub packaging does make for easy application, but you do have to dip your fingers or brush in it to use, which can seem a bit unhygienic. And also, you have to be careful to close them quickly as prolonged exposure to air can dry them out.
I love the texture of these blushes. They are very airy, spongy/cushion-y and if you press in them hard, it will cause a dent. Hence you need to be careful, just skim the surface. The texture feels super lightweight and is easy to blend without going streaky. I find using your fingertips is best if you want to go heavy, or use a stipple brush for a sheerer look on the skin.
The shade Raspberry/Opal is basically the blush shade Raspberry mixed with the highlight shade Opal, both of them are available individually to buy in the Becca line. But using this pre mixed product makes for such a quick and easy application.
The shade, Raspberry/Opal, is a very beautiful warm plum with golden opal highlight mixed in it. It is a beautiful berry plum shade with a warm golden sheen. I love how this shade gives the perfect amount of glow to the cheeks without being too shimmery. The sheen, in this particular shade, is much more apparent than the other 2 shades I own.
This product gives such a multi-dimensional look to the cheeks with the blush shade topped with the golden sheen. This makes it look like you have layered multiple products to achieve the look. It looks very natural and is even perfect for everyday wear. This shade will suit most skin tones, but deeper skin tones may have difficulty getting this shade to show up on their skin.
This shade has a very good pigmentation. I have to build it up in 2-3 layers for the shade to show up with intensity on my skin, but it still retains a sort of translucency. I am someone who likes the look of blushes and likes them to look visible and apparent on my skin. Hence, the sheerness of these blushes in general is something I am not a huge fan of. The plus here is that these souffles do layer and build on quite easily without feeling too heavy or greasy.
Feel and Look on Skin:
The product goes on with a crème finish without any tackiness or greasiness. It feels very lightweight on the skin. The shimmers don’t travel all over my face and are so fine that they are hardly detectable on their own. It gives a wonderfully luminous glow to the skin which I love.
I like how it doesn’t seem to emphasize my pores.
The staying power of this blush is good on my skin. Becca claims that these blushes are like a tint on the skin which is waterproof and long wearing, but they do start to show fading in 5-6 hours on my skin. I can stretch the staying power if I apply them heavily.
These blushes have a faint fruity scent, which I like.
I absolutely love the spongy texture, the whipped formula and the beautiful range of colors these blushes come in. This particular shade is quite beautiful, and I love pairing it with pink berry looks. I am quite happy with this product. If you like glowy, natural-looking, easy to use blushes, these are some of the best in the market. I will recommend this.
