Quick Reviews: Becca Tuberose Lip & Cheek Creme

Becca Tuberose Lip & Cheek Creme ($29.00 for 0.10 oz.) is an elegant shade of subdued coral with a flush of pink. It has a creamy, smooth consistency and blends effortlessly on cheeks. It’s not too sheer or too intense, but it will certainly deliver a lovely layer of color with little work. The formula is excellent because of the natural finish (no shimmer, no real sheen, just color) and the all-day wear (at least eight hours). This works well as an easy, everyday kind of blusher that wears well and flatters both warm and cooler skin tones.

As much as I liked it on cheeks, it didn’t do much for me on lips–too drying, a little sheer, and overall, not a product I’d use again on my lips. It works so much better as a cream blush that I don’t see any reason to waste it on lips when there are far better lip products in my stash. I also wish that there was more product for the price tag (or the reverse would work, too!).  Please take heed that this product as a blush is easily 29/30, but it’s supposed to be dual-purpose and I think it falls short of being a worthwhile lip product.

It reminded me of NARS Cactus Flower Cream Blush, but it is less intense and contains no gold shimmer. It is also pinker and more coral than the nude MAC Ladyblush Blushcreme.
