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. Chanel Malice (71) (P, $45.00) is darker. Benefit Bella Bamba (Palette) (P, $28.00) is more shimmery, darker. Tarte Glisten (P, $26.00) is more shimmery, warmer. YSL Passionnee (6) (P, $47.00) is less shimmery. Too Faced Who’s Your Poppy (LE, ) is more shimmery, warmer. MAC Petal Power (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, warmer. IT Cosmetics Pretty in Peony (P, $24.00) is darker, warmer. Too Faced Peachy Keen (LE, ) is more shimmery. Charlotte Tilbury Love Glow (P, $40.00) is cooler. Guerlain Peach Boy #2 (P, ) is darker. First 15 dupes listed, see more: See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

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.

I was eyeing this one, but have 3 of the dupes already – IT Pretty in Peony, Benefit Coralista & Bella Bamba. Money saved!

I usually try to wear it a little more than super subtle (and it’s usually heavier than it looks, as lighting always softens it), but this is probably less than a layer as it is pretty pigmented.

Thanks for the review! I heard somewhere that Becca is reformulating their blushes, and that the 3 new shades (Hyacinth, Lantana and Nightingale) will be in the new formula. Is this true? And if so, do you know if the Flowerchild in this review is of the new or the old formula? Thanks for all your hard work!!!

Sorry, I don’t get any info from Becca at this time, so I’m really not sure. Per their Instagram, they released three new shades, but I remember the majority of their other blushes being out of stock forever. From what I can tell, the ingredient list on Flowerchild is the same as the ingredient list from 2012, so it doesn’t appear to have changed. The box packaging is updated/different but the quantity and ingredient list are the same (my Damselfly had ingredient information for Wild Honey, Sweetpea, Flowerchild, and Damselfly), and the box packaging for Flowerchild is the same for Lantana (which is new). All of the blushes I have from Becca, except Damselfly that I reviewed in 2012, I purchased in June 2015. The ingredients in Lantana are somewhat different (a few in a different order and inclusion/exclusion of a few others), but the finish of Lantana is more satin/semi-matte so it might just be to achieve that finish.

Okay thanks so much! That’s very helpful. In Toronto, Wild Honey, Sweetpea and Flowerchild are always in stock, but Damselfly is always missing 🙁 Still trying to get my hands on it. SUPER excited for the 3 new shades.

P.S. I know it’s unrelated but thanks so much for letting us know that Champagne pop is basically Opal over Moonstone! <3

This is the BECCA blush I would most consider getting. Looks extremely wearable, and if the quality is anywhere near the level of their highlighters, I’m sure I will adore it!

I think it’s a good alternative to Pink Sand! It’s a little warmer and more pigmented but a light hand or a fan brush might make it seem closer!

Flowerchild looks lovely! But then again, it seems to be an easy shade for companies to “get right”, and therefore it has a gazillion dupes. I still have my trusty Nyx Pinched and Nars Orgasm, so I’m good!

I’ve never found the right “peachy pink, golden highlights” combo that I want, but your photos and description sound like this might be The One .

Echoing another commenter, “thanks for all your hard work”….. Your descriptions and photos are a great help for beauty junkies like me.

Keep me posted if this is THE ONE, Angel! 😀 It’s a well-done version of that peach-pink shade we’ve seen before.

Thank you! <3

This is one of my all-time favourite blushes! I’ve had mine for 3 years now and still use it (please don’t be grossed out, it’s powder!). One of the most gorgeous shades I have ever seen too if you are into peachy-pinks. Smooth, finely milled, pigmented, easy to blend and the luminous finish – I skip highlighter whenever I use it.

And now, I am soooooo thrilled that this is part of the Afterglow palette which I am so ordering. But there’s absolutely no way I am parting ways with the 3-year old, full-sized one.
