Becca Blushed with Light Palette

Becca Blushed with Light Palette
Becca Blushed with Light Palette

Becca Blushed with Light Palette ($34.00 for 0.46 oz.) is a medium-size, plastic compact that contains three blushes–a neutral-to-warm pink, orange-brown, and pink-coral. One shade (Wisteria) is new and exclusive to the palette, while the other two shades are available in the Becca’s permanent range. If you don’t mind your blushes more pigmented, then I think you might like this palette–two shades were rated lower because they weren’t as subtle/buildable as described. I wish the texture of Snapdragon was smoother and softer, more like the full-size version, but it looked the same applied to the skin, so the difference isn’t as noticeable in practice.

Value

  • Mineral Blush: $32.00 for 0.20 oz., palette contains 0.33 oz., $52.80 worth of Mineral Blush
  • Luminous Blush: $34.00 for 0.21 oz., palette contains 0.13 oz., $21.05 worth of Luminous Blush
  • Value: $73.85

Wisteria is a muted, medium pink with neutral-to-warm undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, lightly dusty but not dry-looking on the skin, and it was easily blended across the cheeks for even coverage. It had medium, buildable coverage–which is what the formula is supposed to have–that can be applied at near opaque coverage. This shade wore well for seven and a half hours on me before fading. Tarte Empowering (LE, $28.00) is lighter, cooler (95% similar). Urban Decay Fetish (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). bareMinerals Golden Gate Matte (LE, $22.00) is darker, more muted, warmer (90% similar). Laura Geller Boysenberry (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Love (LE, $30.00) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Tarte Impress (LE, $28.00) is lighter, cooler (90% similar).

Makeup Geek Heart Throb (P, $10.00) is warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Songbird is a medium, orange-brown with warm undertones and a golden sheen. It was richly pigmented (not really buildable, as it is supposed to be!) with a more powdery texture. The good news was that it still applied easily and blended well on the skin, so the powderiness didn’t translate when applied and worked into the skin. On me, the color started to fade after seven and a half hours of wear. Charlotte Tilbury The Climax (P, $40.00) is lighter (95% similar). MAC Pleasure Model (LE, $25.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Elegance (370) (P, $45.00) is lighter, more muted, cooler (90% similar).

Snapdragon is a bright, medium pink-coral with gold shimmer. The version in the palette is a lot pinker and brighter compared to my standalone, which looked warmer both in the pan as well as swatched. Though this formula is described as subtle and that it can be used as a “blush topper,” it was actually intensely pigmented and a little went a long way. You would need the barest amount to layer on top of a blush, otherwise the strength of the color in Snapdragon would overwhelm whatever blush you were wearing. The texture was firmer and stiffer in the pan, and it felt different compared to the other two shades well (and different from my standalone version of Snapdragon), though the blush looked fine applied and blended out without issue. It wore for just over eight hours on me before fading. Estee Lauder Wild Sunset (P, $34.00) is more shimmery, lighter (95% similar). NARS Realm of the Senses (Together) (LE, $30.00) is darker, cooler (95% similar). NARS Panic (Right) (P) is more shimmery, darker (95% similar).

Zoeva CR030 (P) is more muted, warmer (90% similar). MAC Simmer (LE, $27.00) is darker, cooler (90% similar). MAC Sweet Vision (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery, lighter (90% similar). Colour Pop Jelly Fish (DC, $8.00) is darker, brighter (90% similar). Laura Geller Papaya (P, $26.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). NARS Deep Throat (P, $30.00) is more muted (90% similar).

The texture was soft, just a smidgen dusty but not actually dry to the touch, with a smooth, blendable feel overall. It applied well to the skin and yielded a noticeable sheen, which didn’t emphasize pores unless worn more heavily. It was semi-opaque, which was easily built up or sheered out for a less intense highlight. I thought it was a bit less pigmented compared to other shades, but it was more forgiving applied to the skin and generally easier to work with. The color wore well for eight hours before fading on me.

This shade is supposed to be a combination between the brand’s Opal highlighter and Wild Honey blush, and it is exclusive to Becca’s website. The texture was soft, lightly dusty but blendable and didn’t look powdery on the skin. I was actually surprised by the resulting finish, as it was luminous without being metallic–this is the least shimmery highlighter I’ve seen from Becca. It’s very hard to overdo, which made it more forgiving, while a lot of their range is so intense that a light hand is necessary! The texture wasn’t as smooth or as cream-like as the permanent shades, though, but I don’t think it looks dry or powdery on the skin, which is where it counts the most. It had good pigmentation that was buildable from semi-opaque to opaque. On me, the color lasted well for seven and a half hours.
