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.

For semi-sheer lip color in a formula that keeps lips feeling lush and hydrated, definitely check out Becca's Sheer Tint Lip Colour! The only downside was the shorter wear time, but it wasn't too much below average.

    I was so excited when I read “Sheer Tint” and saw this perfect pink color, and then I realize it has a frost finish. Meh.

    Love this!  This is the third Becca product that looks really interesting to me.  Is there any place I can purchase in the US?  Or is it just online through Becca?

    •  @GUSnail I’m not sure what stores carry Becca – your best bet would to be to use their store locator!

    • Amanda

       @GUSnail BeautyHabit.com, DermStore.com have Becca!

      @GUSnail there is a place in Perrysburg, OH that I go to. You can find where to buy on Becca’s website. However, they said becca got bought out and they have been having the hardest time stocking (US?) stores. Becca said they were “revamping” their product line and should have new stuff by spring. Well now, apparently, it’s going to be fall before they get any new product. So, all that being said, I would stick with buying online.

      • GUSnail

        @Julia B Thanks everyone. I’ve checked the Becca website. There are 1 or 2 places relatively close that are supposed to stock them. I’m going to call around and see if they have them currently. Otherwise I will have to look online. But loathe to pay shipping. :)

    Can you do a review on Tom Ford Frantic Pink blush please?

    If one means “looks like you’re not wearing any lipstick” by nude, I could kinda see this, because the color is very similar to my natural lip color–but not with the finish it’s got.  When I think of nude, though, I think of something that could be considered closer to a skintone color, even if it’s not necessarily my skintone.

    • CiaraAinsleyFears

       @Quinctia Stole the words right outta my mouth! I think “nude” means sheer to some people, same color as your skin to some people, and same color as your lips to others! Ah, the joys of makeup.

    This is the first time I’ve seen this color, but I own Vendela and Gisella and love both – they’re not drying at all and they’re great my-lips-but-better shades. I would totally encourage you to try different colors if you like the formula!
