BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé in Lychee/Opal and Fig/Opal | Review, Photos, and Swatches!

Right to Left: Lychee/Opal and Fig/Opal 
Hey Guys!
I decided to blog today because I just received a Sephora.com order in the mail and I couldn't wait to share this product with you guys! The new BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés have me REALLY excited. I'm a highlighter junky, so I feel in love quick with BECCA's Shimmering Skin Perfecters and these blushes are a combination of those infamous highlighters as well as their Beach Tints! As a normal to dry skin girl, and one who likes a dewy finish, you better believe I was going to jump all over these beauties. A couple of the shades are currently sold out on Sephora.com and these JUST launched 1-2 weeks ago. I'm glad I was able to pick up Lychee because that is one of the shades that is currently sold out, along with Papaya.

"A four-in-one air-whipped soufflé formula that adds a flush of colour to cheeks. 
The soufflé is made by pulverizing Beach Tint and Shimmering Skin Perfector pigments and pearls into an ultrafine powder, which is then combined with a proprietary blend of liquids, and whipped into a delicate soufflé. 
This lightweight formula packs four must-have qualities into one formula: a powder to add a pop of colour, a stain to give staying powder, an illuminating highlight, and a cream to deliver a flawless finish. Water-resistant and oil-free, each pot combines Becca's bestselling Beach Tint with a Shimmering Skin Perfector for effortlessly buildable, complexion-enhancing colour, soothing hydration, and a youthful glow." - Sephora.com
There are six (6) shades to choose from: 
Fig/Opal - nude infused with golden opal
Lychee/Opal - bubblegum pink infused with golden opal
Guava/Moonstone - coral infused with pale gold
Watermelon/Moonstone - coral red infused with pale gold
Papaya/Topez - bright tangerine red infused with golden bronze
Raspberry/Opal - Raspberry infused with golden opal




The texture is beautiful. You can use a little to get a light wash of colour or a lot for a more vibrant glow. I love that these have the staying power of a stain incorporated in a buttery smooth formula which is extremely blendable and easy to work with. The swatches speak for themselves to how STUNNING they are once applied on the skin. I can't wait to get some colour this summer because I think these will look amazing on a tan in addition to my fair skin. I'm curious as to how the other shades swatch as I was not able to find swatches online before I purchased mine. I'll have to play around with these in stores because I love Lychee and Fig so much that I would love to pick up some more if the colours are just as beautiful. You can use a brush to apply these, but I love using my fingers. You can really build up the colour and blend the product out quite nicely with just your fingers.




The packaging is equally as stunning. A simple silver screw top which reads "BECCA" encloses the whipped soufflé blush. The size is just a little bit more than a MAC Paint Pot. There is 0.20 oz of product and the retail for $33 CAD each. They are quite pricey for the size and I can see myself using these up pretty quickly, which is the only downside that I see thus far.

NO PARABENS
NO SULFATES


Are you planning on purchasing any of these shades?

Dollhaus Couture Review and Outfit of the Day


Hey Guys!

Hope you are all doing well! I've been busy working on my YouTube channel, as you know, and being a new mom! Life has been really busy, but I really want to get back into blogging more regularly. I miss it! Blogging is so much easier than making a video and as my son gets older, I feel as though I have less and less time. Hopefully I can get back to updating this blog weekly.

I just wanted to make a brief post in regards to an online Canadian Boutique called Dollhaus Couture. They specialize in celebrity inspired bandage wear, dresses and bathing suits. This boutique is different than other online boutique because you shop THROUGH their Facebook page! I have a full-on review of the company on my latest video if you want more information. It is also a tutorial for my blue eyed viewers out there! YES, I am wearing blue eye contacts. The video to the tutorial and outfit of the day will be linked below.

Here is a picture of me in the "Elana" dress taken at 4 months postpartum! I still have a little ways to go to get back to my pre-baby body, but I'm just happy it is coming off, even though it has been a slow process.
