My mom passed on to me her love of blush, so naturally I can’t really think of facing the day without a touch of color on my cheeks. However, not all blush is created equal. Some blushes just look “watered-down” and pasty on my skin, so I’m in favor of a blush that packs a punch with pigment and has staying power. That’s exactly what you get with BECCA Mineral Blushes. I am so pleased to try BECCA Mineral Blush in Lantana.
What it does:
Create your perfect cheeks with this effortlessly buildable formula. Infused with antioxidant vitamins for all skin types, even the most sensitive, it’s enriched with micro-fine minerals and antioxidant vitamins to achieve a natural-looking, flushed appearance. Wear it alone or layer it over BECCA’s Beach Tint for added luminosity.
Why I’m crushing:
BECCA Mineral Blush in Lantana is a little pot of heaven. This blush, which is so jam-packed with pigment is perfect for my brown skin. Rather than having to go into the blush 3-4 times to build color on my skin, I find that one swipe is plenty to get a gorgeous flush of color. I also love that this is a matte finish, as shimmery finishes tend to make my skin look oilier than it really is.
I love Lantana, a pretty crimson, because it looks like a natural glow on my skin. I have also found that this mineral blush lasts, and lasts, so there is no need for touch ups during the day. The color is buildable, so I an do a nice, natural blush look, or I can go more dramatic with a touch more color. It takes so little of this blush to get color on my cheeks, that I suspect this precious compact of color will last me a very long time.
The packaging is luxe, as it is with all of BECCA products. Some may think that $34 is steep for a blush, but you are getting almost pure pigment, in a wonderful blend of ingredients. It’s worth the spend, trust me!
