Zuneta had a fabulous 20% off code in February and I took my chance to purchase some newly released Becca products that cost a bomb in Australia. I just don't get it. Becca is an Australian brand, so why should it cost twice as much to buy these products locally?
Anyway, I will be doing a Becca review-athon in the next few hours so you can see what I purchased and just how totally gorgeous and droolworthy these products are.
Vintage Jewel houses four of Becca's cream products. From the top right corner going anti-clockwise, we have:
- Lip Gloss in Cosmopolitan - very sheer deepened berry shade
- Creme Blush in Hyacinth - medium neutral (?) pink ... LOVE this!!
- Lip & Cheek Creme in Snapdragon - peachy coral
- Creme Highlighter in Beechnut - a highly pigmented olive leaning gold
|L-R: Cosmopolitan, Hyacinth, Snapdragon, Beechnut, Cosmopolitan layered on top of Snapdragon|
|Close up of Beechnut|
|Beechnut sheered out|
This is definitely a palette for darker skinned gals. That highlighter will not work on anyone who falls in the fair to medium skin range. It can be sheered out to a lovely glowly sheen and it is worth mentioning that Becca's cream blushes/highlighters are really great, second only to Illamasqua's blushes. They are so easy to blend, and nicely pigmented.
Verdict: Vibrant, nicely pigmented (except for the gloss), and easy to use. Highly recommended for darker skin, and will be great in summer.
