Becca Hyacinth Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “vibrant poppy pink.” It’s a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. MAC Supernova (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery, warmer, lower quality. Burberry Hydrangea Pink (P, $42.00) is darker, warmer. NARS Mata Hari (P, $30.00) is darker, more muted. MAC Whole Lotta Love (P, $23.50) is less shimmery, more muted. Chanel Affinite (65) (P, $38.00) is lighter, warmer. Clinique Berry Pop (03) (P, $21.00) is less shimmery. YSL Fuchsia Desinvolte (01) (P, $40.00) is less shimmery. MAC Sunset Beach (LE, $32.00) is more muted. MAC Peaches & Cream (LE, $21.00) is lighter, more muted. NARS Panic (Left) (P, ) is lighter. Sephora Collection Love Sick (22) (P, $15.00) is lighter, more muted. Clinique Rosy Pop (P, $21.00) is more shimmery, lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

It was intensely pigmented–by no means buildable–to the point where you’ll want to use a lighter hand when applying (and fairer skin tones may want to use a more feathery, airy brush as well) as a little goes a long way. The texture was soft, firmer than the more shimmery shades, but still easily blended during application. The color didn’t turn patchy or appear uneven, despite it being such a rich color (which I naturally over-applied the first time I used it!). I suspect this will look cooler-toned on those with naturally cool undertones, as one I diffuse it, the color looks warmer on me due to my undertones. The color lasted for nine hours before fading slightly.

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 thinking almost the same thing. I love to wear this kind of shade right on my cheekbone with traditional contour and highlight. Total 80-90’s styles.

Ooooh! If only it was a bit more shimmery, with a teensy bit of microglitter, this would be an excellent replacement for my beloved, long D/C Lancome ‘Pink Pool’ blush. /cry

Wowzers, that’s an intense, but really pretty color! Reminds me quite a bit of my ColourPop Pie blush, close? I LOVE my pot of Pie!

I just saw how much more magenta Pie is in the side-by-side swatches comparison, HUGE difference! Weirdly, on my cheeks Pie appears more fuschia like Hyacinth. Strange how my skin “warms” colors up!

This is probably a bit much on me (understatement time), but I’m SO glad companies are branching out from just more Orgasm dupes. Yay for innovation!

Agreed! I’m loving the new shades they put out… just wish they would have been like “hey, guys! these are really pigmented!”

Love! What a beautiful blush!
I quite like vibrant colours when it comes to blushes, so this is such a want one. Now I must reserch if I can buy Becca products.

For a company that has always been about a natural finish, this and Lantana are a really big deal! This is a pretty big shift away from their wheelhouse!

Actually, no. I”m sorry. Now I read the comments of course I’m reminded that these will actually be really great options for darker skintones. So really, these colours can be seen as expanding their blush range to match their foundation range.
