Becca Beach Tints - Watermelon & Guava



Becca Beach Tints are another multi-purpose product that can be used both on the lips and on the cheeks. The consistency of these is completely different to the consistency of the Stila Convertible Colors but I like them just as well, if not even more.

The Beach Tints are described as creme stains that are kiss-proof, water-resistant, non-greasy and non-drying. The texture of these is indeed lovely: thicker than a liquid (the famous Benetint is too runny in my opinion and sets too quickly) and not as thick as regular cream blushes. Because of the silicones in the base they are very easy to apply and blend with fingers or brushes, which way you prefer and I find them really long-lasting on my skin.

The colours that I have are Watermelon (bright pink) and the newest addition to the range which came out with this summer collection, Guava (bright coral pink). Both colours have no shimmer. They have a subtle scent - of Watermelon and Guava, of course, although it's more wannabe-Watermelon and wannabe-Guava but luckily the scent disappears quickly. I don't have any other colours on my wishlist as I think these two probably suit my complexion the most and some of the other colours look quite similar, but I would have loved it if Becca made a Bronzer Tint in this same formula.

And now for some swatches (that look more like a weird allergy test):

As you can see in the first photo, the Beach Tint in Guava hasn't yet fully set and is still quite wet. You definitely have enough time to work with these until they set completely.

They work really well just by themselves but because they are so light and non-tacky they also make a great base for powder blushes. You need to be careful though and really shake them well before each use as the product separates a bit in the tube. They work also very well on the lips, adding a hint of colour although they are not moisturizing at all but they are not too drying either (I would recommend using a tinted balm or a lipgloss on top).

Another reason why I love these is the packaging: a sleek tube, much more hygienic than regular cream blush compacts.

  2. They are really pretty & I imagine would work quite well applied under a tm or light foundation as well as on top of it! Never tried any Becca might have to rectify that!

  8. Hi Christina! I just checked the review of Peach on your blog and it looks so pretty! I really wish they brought out a bronzing tint, it would be a great new product launch for next summer, perhaps? x

    Hi Jen, Guava is very lovely, I've been using it a lot this summer and I use Watermelon more in the colder months. x

    Thanks Nat! And I just saw your post on the Becca Eye Tint in Baroque which is one of my favourite eyeshadow bases, I guess we have similar tastes :) x
