Becca's 10th Anniversary Palette in Vintage Jewel - Review and Swatches

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

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.



  1. For the lighter skinned woman the beechnut looks great as an eyeshadow.

  2. Thanks kitjoegia, that's a wonderful idea. I would usually hesitate to use anything not specifically designed for use on the eye area as eyeshadow but if it works, then that's fasntastic!
