Becca Sweet Pea Mineral BlushBecca Sweet Pea Mineral Blush ($32.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as a “rosy plum nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin finish. I really didn’t see the rose/plum tones in it; even in the pan, I feel like I’m stretching to see rose/plum. Laura Mercier Earth (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery. Becca Wild Honey (P, $32.00) is lighter, warmer. ColourPop Aphrodisiac (P, $8.00) is lighter, cooler. Urban Decay Video (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, lighter. MAC Liberating (LE, $21.00) is lighter. Makeup Geek Infatuation (P, $9.99) is lighter, less pigmented, warmer. Chanel Accent (84) (LE, $45.00) is more shimmery, darker, cooler. Becca Fig (P, $25.00) is more shimmery. Chanel Cheeky (79) (LE, $38.00) is darker, glossier. Too Faced Peach Beach (P, $30.00) is lighter. Kevyn Aucoin Natura (P, ) is lighter, warmer. NARS Madly (P, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker. Burberry Earthy (P, $42.00) is cooler. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.

The color payoff of this shade was more in line with what the formula is supposed to be–buildable–as the color was semi-sheer to semi-opaque. It had a soft, blendable texture that wasn’t powdery nor was it too firm. It applied with ease, as the powder diffused softly along the edges and didn’t turn patchy or appear uneven in the end. This could be more like a satiny bronzer for some skin tones that won’t get too bright, as there is a muted quality to the color overall. On me, the blush lasted for eight and a half hours before fading slightly.

Formula Summary | Becca Mineral BlushBecca 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 am so torn between buying this shade and wild honey! I have songbird and love it but just can’t decide which to get next.

I concur, this is in no way a rose or plum in the least! But it DOES make for quite a lovely bronzer, especially for medium thru caramel skintones!
