BECCA Beach Tint in Grapefruit, plus a review revisit

Today, I’ll be talking about the BECCA Beach Tint that came in the “Best of BECCA” set I ordered a few weeks ago. If you’re new here, BECCA Beach Tints are one of BECCA’s cult products and a personal favorite of mine. Beach Tints are “water-resistant colours for cheeks and lips.” As with most multi-purpose products, I prefer this using this for one purpose, and in this case, it is a much better cheek product than a lip product. The first one I purchased is called Raspberry, and I loved it so much, I got another one, Guava. The one that came in the set is called Grapefruit, and it’s the one on the right, which is similar to Guava, but more orange than Guava’s coral pink. It’s not extremely pigmented, and I honestly wasn’t expecting much mileage or use out of this because on the hand, it looks really blah. I didn’t want to get my hopes up, I suppose, is what I’m saying. However! When I put it on my cheeks, it gives …

Quickie: BECCA Beach Tint in Guava

I recently acquired the BECCA Beach Tint in Guava from my Tita Betchay who lives in Sydney. The BECCA Beach Tint is a multi-purpose, water-resistant color for your cheeks and lips. For a more in-depth look at the Beach Tints, check out my review on it in the shade Raspberry here. Guava is a brighter, more summery color that gives your cheeks a subtle wash of color. It’s a bright coral pink that brightens up the face and adds just the right amount of color for a flush without a dramatic pop. Raspberry is a deep berry pink that adds a cool flush, while Guava is a pinky coral that warms up the face. I don’t know if geography has anything to do with it (the Raspberry pic was taken in cold Japan in the springtime, while the Guava one was taken in Manila post-summer), but I do feel like grabbing Guava more often in the coming days. I also would like to point out that these are pretty much indispensable these days, especially for …

BECCA Beach Tint in Raspberry

The BECCA Beach Tint is quite an expensive find, but one that I’ve been looking for for so long. I went to Adora to pick one of these beach tints up, but after purchase I found out that the mark-up was nearly double the original price. I would love to buy more of these, but I might have better luck online, since the price mark-up is so high and that’s the only retailer I know in Manila that carries the brand. However, after everything that’s been said, I highly recommended the Beach Tint and I don’t regret this purchase. I haven’t extensively used this until I went to Japan on vacation. I wanted to keep my makeup bag light and portable and I succeeded, somewhat. I wanted to bring this because it is a multi-purpose product, for use on the lips and cheeks. It is also supposedly waterproof (which explains the name). It was when I was on vacation that I appreciated the versatility, ease of use, and overall greatness of this product. I got …
