Becca Fig/Opal Beach Tint Shimmer SouffleBecca Fig/Opal Beach Tint Shimmer Souffle ($27.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “nude infused with golden opal.” It’s a light-medium, gold-shimmered coppered-peach with a soft, frosted sheen. Maybelline Nude Rebellion (201) (LE, $8.99) is lighter, more metallic. Becca Rose Gold (LE, $38.00) is yellower. Laura Mercier Spellbound (LE, $42.00) is similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The formula is described as a “four-in-one air-whipped souffle formula that adds a flush of color to cheeks.” It is supposed to give a “pop of color,” “stain to give staying power,” illuminate, while also being water-resistant. The formula takes Becca’s Beach Tint and mixes them with their Shimmering Skin Perfector. Initially, it looked almost like a loosely pressed powder in the glass jar, but it is, in fact, a souffle–it’s spongy, wet, and airy. Visually, they appear similar to other marbleized formulas, like the recent Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes, but the formula here is much more shimmery–there seems to be an emphasis on the shimmer or illumination effect over color. On my medium skin tone, it yields a darker peach color with a golden champagne shimmer-sheen finish. It doesn’t emphasize pores (but it doesn’t soften them), is easy to apply and blend, and sits well on the skin (over bare skin or over liquid foundation). I have normal-to-dry skin, which is closer to normal these days, and it lasts seven and a half hours on me before starting to fade. I wish it was in different packaging, because the glass jar’s opening is on the smaller side (think your more typical cream eyeshadow jar), so getting your favorite blush brush in might take a little maneuvering. I bought all of the shades in the formula, and as I finish testing them, you’ll see reviews for additional shades become available.

The swatches are quite sparkly but it translates beautifully on your skin! I am pretty excited about these I hope they are worth it! 🙂

I think this one is, if you are looking for more of a soft tint/light shimmer (and have medium skin or lighter!).

That looks beautiful on you! I have Papaya/Topaz (the one that will undoubtedly be a slam dunk with darker skin tones) and it’s so gorgeous! My Papaya/Topaz & Watermelon/Opal have a light scent; do yours?

I’ve been seeing some early swatches for this product, and it looks like about half of the shades work better as highlighters than blushes, and the other half are true ‘shimmer’ blushes. It’s an interesting product that reminds me a little bit of the Hourglass blushes… but only a little. I think it’s still enough of its own thing.

I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest perform and look on the face, Christine!

I agree — I think they’re a different product, even if visually (in the pot) they bear a resemblance. The texture, effect, and colors are more different than alike–the souffles are a lot more shimmery.

I grabbed this shade for barely there cheeks for summer. I like the looks of this although it almost mimics a highlighter rather than a blush. My skintone is a shade or two lighter so this could be freaking perfect. I think it looks wonderful on you and glad at least it does not emphasize pores. I do wish the product had better staying power. I don’t mind the size of the pot as I tend to use MAC 130 for cream or cream to powder blushes. Perfect size.

Yeah, this shade definitely leans more highlighter than illuminating blush, though even on my skin tone, managed some visible color!

I really like the color and it seems like an interesting formula. But you know what is annoying? The box says ” water resistant and oil free” -meanwhile the ingredients state castor oil pretty high up on the ingredients list! I’m not sensitive to oils pereonally but I don’t like the way they lie on the packaging.

It’s frustrating that terms like oil-free aren’t regulated so that they’re meaningful (and this is true for a lot of other buzz words in beauty).

That’s a bit to dark for me, but it’s a fun color for medium skin tones and darker for a night out!

I’m surprised it would be too dark on you, because it seems like such a perfect shade for lighter skin tones! What a bummer!

Judith, try the original tubes Becca Beach Tint in Fig. That’s the most lightest fair nude rose color of all the tints! The tube lasts forever as all you need is a tiny amount and it’s quite blend able so you build it as you like as well as wear it on your lips too! Look them up! Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25 is a liquid that comes in Pearl, Opal, Moonstone, and Topaz. The liquid is in a large pump dispensed bottle with product to last a lifetime and you control how shimmery, though it always looks natural. It’s widely used for professional shoots. If you google both products separately, you may find a new lightweight long lasting love! <3 (I'm pale and I love Fig) 🙂

Hi Christine! The Fig Beach Tint, by itself, is a dusty nude rose color. Like a beige mauve neutral. So when getting this, despite the appearance, please know that the color will be as dark as the original pigment, not what the pot looks like, as it is whipped up with a lightening Shimmering Skin Perfecter. Opal is a color similar to the Nars Sand Illuminator, thereby making this nude rose a bit dirty, a bit more peachy, and with a champagne shimmer. Opal, unlike Moonstone which is all golden shimmer, has a variation of a few colors but is quite an intense shimmer, unlike Pearl, for instance. So, knowing that, these all will be on the more shimmery side. I think you look beachy and fresh! But if better results are expected, please factor in the actual color of Becca Beach Tints, and perhaps you’ll just want one of them, in a squeeze tube never exposed to air, lasting forever, and to purchase the Shimmering Skin Perfecter of your choice, so you control the shimmer & where it goes. I’ve been doing that for years. I’m not too shimmery, and my product lasts ceaselessly because of how little is needed. I hope that helps! For desired effect, you can do it yourself! 🙂 I highly respect & greatly appreciate your reviews as they help me so much, and so I want to help you with at least one thing Im sure of, and then you’ll see why the color appears as it does. I’m guessing the Watermelon and Guava ones will make you happier. These are also able to go onto lips. Enjoy!

For reference, I’m referring to Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25, they are a liquid. 🙂

No problem! Also: Becca Beach Tints are in a squeeze tube which you only need a tiny but from, and the coolest thing is that once you collect a few colors, you can blend your own shade! So for all of you thinking that a shade may be too dark, fig is actuli the fairest shade, and I urge you to try these! They do not irritate anyone and have been HG FOR so many in the industry for years! (not the soufflés) Does anybody besides Christine read these? I see complaints that, had you read these, you’d understand. I’m contributing to help make people get what they want and spare their bank acount! <3 xo

I am confused – the tub itself says “Fig/Opal” but the packaging says “Lychee/Opal”! Is Lychee one of the other shades coming up soon? 🙂

Hi Ali!

I only take one shot of exterior packaging 🙂 At the end of the post, I wrote: “I bought all of the shades in the formula, and as I finish testing them, you’ll see reviews for additional shades become available.”

Nice color. I’m curious how these perform on the eyes. (I know they aren’t marketed as an eye product.. that color would be gorgeous as a eyeshadow)

Is it just me or do they look incredibly different on the launch article? Also ps: i emailed you, if you need any help around the site or anything I’d be glad to help! Being on sick leave is kind of boring, id love to help you!

Got your email, I’m just a terrible email correspondent – will try to get back to you by this weekend! xoxo

This was the shade I was most excited to see. Its beautiful! In love how it almost makes your cheeks look ‘wet’… In know that’s weird, but that is what I look for in a highlighter 🙂

oh, thank you for this review! I was so tempted by these because the colors are so lovely but before I plunked down almost $30 I was curious to know how they performed. Now I’m even more tempted to go and get one! It’s very pretty – I love that sheen

this isn’t something that you could wear under your foundation, or mixed in with your foundation is it? does it have too much glitter for that? Thanks!

It’s wet enough and spreadable enough that you could wear it mixed in, but it’s not *really* practical to do so. If you want to do that, I’d probably say just go for the actual Shimmering Skin Perfector (liquid), as it’ll work better for that!

Here’s all the info!

I noticed my local Sephora is carrying Becca now, so I will be looking for this. The lip color you are wearing is beautiful too, what is it?

This particular one is very fresh and natural looking! Lovely 🙂

What a pretty shade, interesting formula too! It looks great on you, Christine.

I can’t wait to see this line in person. 🙂
