BECCA Makeup Haul and Reviews


Hi Divas!

I am excited to do another makeup review for you. I don't own many products by Becca and have only recently started using the brand. The brand hasn't been very accessible to my fellow South Africans until now. I did a review on their famous Shimmering Skin Perfector which you can read here and I wrote a review on a lovely sunscreen which you can read here.  As most of you know Becca is very famous for their stunning face highlighters. These are still on my wish list and I would love to purchase one soon. Besides gorgeous illuminators Becca has a lovely makeup line. This week I will explore some more products in their makeup realm. I own three face products which are a shimmering eyeshadow, a lip and cheek creme tint and a juicy lip gloss. All the products come packaged in the same dark brown box with the elegant Becca silver logo.


 The packaging for all three products are very sleek and sturdy. I love the silver accent on the lip and cheek product as well as the eyeshadow. The lip and cheek creme has the same packaging as their highlighters, just smaller. It is really cute and compact, which is great to pop in the smallest clutch. The eyeshadow is held in a plastic square pot with a twist top. This too is very cute and not too bulky to put in your travel makeup bag. The lip gloss comes in a 7ml tube with a doe foot applicator. The top is very sturdy and won't leak or break in your bag.


Becca Jewel Dust in Laila
The eyeshadow pigment I own is in Laila. It is a gorgeous duochrome loose pigment with white, silver and specks of iridescent blue glitter. It looks stunning on the eyes and reminds me of a mermaid's tail and the White Queen look from Alice in Wonderland. This is a loose shimmery pigment that works best by applying it with your fingers onto your eyelids so that the glitters won't get lost in the brush fibres. The pot comes with a sifter. This is great as you can be fully in control of how much eyeshadow you want to use without it spilling everywhere. The lid of the pot is deep enough to deposit eyeshadow in there and lift it with your fingers onto the eyes. You should definitely use a eye primer when you wear these loose pigments. If you want a bold shimmer effect glitter glue would also be a great option. I love this eyeshadow for a very dramatic look. You should wear this if you totally want your eyes to stand out and be the focal point of your face.


Becca Lip and Cheek Creme in Petal
I don't own many cream blushes as I prefer powder ones. This compact is perfect for travel as you get a two in one product and it comes with the cutest mini mirror inside. This is especially great if you are stuck at an airport and you want a lovely flush of colour on your lips and cheeks without too much fuss. I have the shade Petal which is a pretty peach shade. This actually looks darker in the compact than when swatched on my skin. It kind of has a pastel peachy colour with bubblegum pink undertones on my skin tone, if that makes any kind of sense! I use my Real Techniques stippling brush and dab it lightly into the product. I then gently tap it on my cheeks. This technique gives a gorgeous flush of colour on the apples of my cheeks. My skin looks like I have a natural peachy glow. It is so feminine and pretty and I love it so much. The cream is definitely buildable and you can increase your blush intensity from a subtle glow to a ''Wam Bam, Hello Ma'am'' look! On my lips, it is a whole other story. This as lip colour does nothing flattering to my skin tone. It is too pastel and too peachy. I look like I stepped out of the 80's when I wear it on my lips as a full on colour. I think it is too cool toned for me. If I were to wear it on my lips, I would dab it on the centre and add a gloss over it. I think this would be my best option. If you are lighter in skin tone than me then I am sure you can rock the peachy lips. The best part about this product is that it does not rub or fade or feel sticky on the skin. It sits surprisingly well throughout the day and does not flake off. Yay!


Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss in Malibu Punch
This gloss is absolutely rightly named as it is packed with so much punch! This is a vibrant and juicy coral lip gloss. I love that it is so opaque and it smells good too. It has a viscous consistency which I prefer in a gloss. I do not like runny lip glosses that drip everywhere when you apply it. The formula of this one is pretty good. With one swipe of the doe foot applicator your lips is coated in juicy colour. This is quite a sticky lip gloss, so if that is not your thing then you probably won't like this one. I don't mind it though. I hardly wear gloss and when I do I make sure it is not on a windy day that my hair gets glued to my lips ;-) I think this is a good one to have in my collection, since I only own like three lip glosses, LOL.



Becca Makeup Look
I used all the products to help create my look below. I have the Jewel dust eyeshadow in Laila on my eyelids. For my cheeks I used the Lip and Cheek Creme in Petal applied with a makeup stippling brush. I tapped the same product on my lips and topped it off with the vibrant lip gloss in Malibu Punch. I also added the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector on the high points of my cheeks and the bridge of my nose. I finished off the look with a dramatic winged liner and lots of black mascara. I think the look came out beautifully. I would definitely wear it to a nighttime event.


Let me know what you think of the products and makeup look below. Have you tried any Becca products and what are your favourites? Visit Becca South Africa for more details on how to purchase the products;-)

Lots of love

All three look lovely on you Desle! I'm glad you reviewed these, because I'm also still trying to familiarize myself with the Becca brand and their cosmetics. I love that blush and eye shadow. I know what you mean about a sticky lip gloss! LOL I hate those, but the color is so lovely with this one. I didn't even know they had lip glosses. Thanks for this review. Excellent.
