If I had to pick a couple of favourites for June that would be easy to do because of my recent haul , but if I had to pick my MOST favourite among them it would be this beautiful, marbled, whipped, light-as-air , luminous ..tint from Becca. This product has received much love from the makeup-lovin’ community ever since it’s launch and my only regret if anything is that I didn’t get it sooner:) First off…it’s BEAUTIFUL! I love to see the artistic side of things , and there’s no denying how gorgeous this product is! And I don’t mean the packaging – I mean the actual product inside..look at it!
The swatch on my NC30-40 skin (yes the range is pretty broad depending on the time of year for me!) was applied pretty heavy. I’ve tried applying this with fingers, as well as with a stippling brush, and I definitely prefer a loosely packed stippling brush for this. It just applies a lot more evenly – probably because it’s SO fluffy soft in consistency ( and not in a bad way)! This was when I applied it in the morning:
When you look up close ( especially with the flash), you can see that it emphasizes my pores a tiny bit:
But it’s so pretty otherwise that I couldn’t let that bother me. Plus it wears so well ! I’m not sure if you can tell clearly from this picture, but this was at the end of the day (after a long walk, some sweating in between etc.) and it was still on :
One thing that struck me about this tint was….are you ready for this?
The *ingredient list* ! I don’t remember the last time I saw any product..let alone a blush have THAT many ingredients!! Umm..at least it’s paraben-free? : )) I got quite a few things recently ( the MAC quad for example, or this Chanel lipstick among others) but the star of the show for me this month was definitely this lil’ fella. Worth the $27 USD and then some!! I was torn between this one and Watermelon/moonstone which looks so purdy on Julie. Good thing there’s always a next time:) The weekend’s practically over ( Sundays never count – they fly by faster than Jimbo can get at whatever’s under the sheets !) .
