Becca Valentina Sheer Tint Lip Colour

Launched with the Balearic Love Collection for the spring, Becca Valentina Sheer Tint Lip Colour ($24.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “nude pink.” I have to disagree on the description–there’s nothing about this that says “nude.” It’s a medium petal pink with a subtle frosted finish and healthy shine. Guerlain Rose Ensoleille is a bit pinker. Guerlain Bloom of Rose is rosier, a little less warm-toned. Chanel Paradis is a touch less warm. Guerlain Cherry Blossom is warmer.

If you’re unfamiliar with this formula, Becca says it’s supposed to be sheer, hydrating, and is finished with a subtle shine. It has a burnt brown sugar scent to me–lightly sweetened, not too over-the-top–but I didn’t detect any taste. The consistency is soft, smooth, and lightweight; the texture is more akin to a lip balm than a lipstick. It doesn’t have the heavier slip that a lot of sheer and moisturizing lipsticks have, which is nice. It hangs on for about three hours and fades away naturally and evenly.

With this particular shade (which is the only one I’ve tried), the color coverage is semi-sheer to semi-opaque depending on how heavily you apply it. I like that there’s enough color to noticeably change your natural lip color but there’s no heavy or opaque look, so it retains a softer, more natural appearance. I love how moisturizing the formula, is, too–not quite as luxurious as a true lip balm, but it’s very close! It’s definitely one of the more moisturizing products I’ve come across.

It’s packaged in a metal case with an interesting clicking mechanism where you actually have to twist the lid to lock it in place.  If you often tote your lip products around with you and find caps come off, you might like this type of packaging!  It will hold fingerprints, even though metal cases always feel more luxurious and look more elegant! Ah, the game of packaging is riddled with trade-offs.
