Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush

Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “bright coral.” It’s more like a muted coral-orange with a warm, golden sheen. It’s a bit like MAC My Paradise but softer, less orange. Make Up For Ever #153 is pinker, more shimmery. MAC Marine Life is slightly pinker with less of a golden sheen.

Becca’s Mineral Blushes are supposed to “impart natural, luminous color” with a long-wearing formula that never looks cakey or chalky. It delivers a healthy amount of pigmentation with very little product, but it’s not so intense that you need to be extra careful when applying. The texture of this is so, so finely milled; it’s silky smooth and extremely soft. It has more of a sheen than a shimmer, so it produces a soft, lit-from-within glow on cheeks while adding natural warmth. This is a blush that is particularly flattering on warmer skin tones, as it looks natural but still gives a nice flush. The formula wears well, too; it lasts just over eight hours for me and still looks decent at nine hours, but there’s a definite fading by the tenth hour.

Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush Review, Photos, Swatches

A
It's soft, glowy, and natural but not so natural that it's barely visible--you can apply it with a light hand for a delicate sheen, normally for a little warmth and color, or heavily for a more coral-orange color.

    I love Becca, their products are so small for what you pay though :( Trying to find a cheaper alternative to their mineral foundation ($50 in Aus), but I might have to bite the bullet and just buy it again!

    I’m a big devotee of chanel blush right now, but for me, I prefer my makeup to be as silky as possible. Would you say the texture of this is much softer than joues contraste?

  18. Joanne

    Christine, this is one of the most stunning looks you’ve done recently, in my opinion. Everything looks perfect! Do you remember what you have on your lips here? As electrifying as your eyes (and cheeks) are, I keep gazing back to your lips.

  20. Thats a great blush. Do you like Becca cosmetics?
