Becca Flowerchild Mineral Blush
Becca Flowerchild Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “peachy pink, golden highlights.” It’s a light-medium, rosy pink with warm undertones and a light dusting of gold shimmer. This is a very standard shade for most brands to include in their blush offerings, so there is no shortage of dupes! Too Faced Love Hangover (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker. Tom Ford Beauty Pink Sand (LE, $65.00) is lighter, cooler. Colour Pop Fox (P, $8.00) is less shimmery. Clinique Melon Pop (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. NARS Fervor (Left) (P, ) is lighter.

It has a moderate golden sheen to the skin that gives off a glowing appearance but doesn’t emphasize pores. The texture was soft, smooth, and easily blended on the skin. It was mostly opaque, so I’d recommend using a lighter hand or less dense brush if you prefer sheerer coverage or want to build up the color in layers. On me, this shade wore well for eight hours before fading.
Formula Summary | Becca Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is supposed to be a “delicate powder blush” with a “buildable formula” that gives a “natural-looking, flushed appearance.” They typically have a soft, creamy consistency that is a little denser than the average powder but not truly dense. Some of the very shimmery shades feel a little dry compared to the more pearly ones. I found the formula to be incredibly easy to apply and blend on the skin without any need for special tricks; they felt very grab-and-go, the kind of blush where there’s no fight to diffuse and soften edges or get even coverage. They are more pigmented than what I’d term as “buildable,” which some will appreciate, some will be disappointed by. The wear ranges from seven to nine hours with the brighter and more satin-to-matte shades lasting longer. My favorite part of the formula is the luminous sheen they give to the skin, so they don’t look too shimmery on the skin. I think if you find Becca’s pressed highlighters to be too shimmery, you may find their blushes more up your alley with respect to finish.
