This past weekend has been so much fun! I have been popping in and out of Sephora stores all over the city to find products I have been lusting over for months and to stock up on products I'm almost out of. My husband knows all too well about my beauty addiction and was sweet enough to keep me company while I visited yet another Sephora to pick up this beautiful blush palette by Becca Cosmetics.
Becca cosmetics has blown up in the beauty industry with their collection of incredibly stunning highlighters and most recently, their luminous blushes. This year, they introduced their first limited edition blush trio called Blushed with Light (3 x 0.16 oz, $41 cdn) that offers a lovely variety of shades.
This is an ultra sleek compact that houses a full sized mirror, two mineral blushes and one luminous blush.
0.16 oz Mineral blush in Wisteria (soft rose)
0.16 oz Mineral blush in Songbird (peachy pink)
0.16 oz Luminous blush in Snapdragon (coral)
This trio is on the more affordable end of blush palettes at Sephora, and what's great about this one in particular is that you get three blushes that equal to just over two full sized Becca blushes for the cost of one. This is a great bargain considering other brands create holiday sets with less products and generally at a much higher price point.
I don't own any Becca blushes so I'm excited to finally add some to my collection. All three powders apply beautifully on my light-medium toned skin, however, I find that Songbird and Snapdragon glide on creamier than Wisteria.
The luminous blush in Snapdragon was the shade I was most excited to try. A fan favourite, it looks very similar to the colour Orgasm by NARS, and has the same consistency as the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes. It has a touch of gold shimmer that helps create a lovely warm glow to your cheeks. This is a great everyday blush and my favourite out of the three in this palette.
Songbird is a peachy pink mineral blush that is another fan favourtie and has a warm undertone to it. For fairer skin tones you could use this shade to create a more natural looking contour. It has a beautiful pigment and will be especially gorgeous during the spring/summer.
Wisteria is a new shade that is exclusive to this palette. This is a matte finish blush in a soft rose shade. It applies the fairest out of the three but gives you the most lovely subtle colour to your cheeks. If you want a natural everyday makeup look with just a flush of colour to your cheeks, this is the shade you should reach for.
I have been wanting to try the Becca blushes for quite some time and so happy they have created an affordable palette this holiday season. The packaging is beautiful and the shade selection is incredible. I am so, so happy that I picked up this palette. For my light to medium skin tone, these three powders apply smooth and last all day. Keep in mind this is limited edition, so once it's gone, it's gone!
