As an effort to convince myself that I don't need the Glossi-eh face gouache, I am digging out my tube of Becca Beach Tint (after having it for two years). There are too many toys around that I never gave it full attention.
Becca Beach Tint is a waterproof gel tint for cheeks and lips that has been around for a few years already. There are many shades available and after some careful swatching, I ended up with Dragonfruit, a medium-deep creamy pink coral (or the color of dragonfruit peel).
Not only I love the tiny size, it also has the perfect opening which only dispenses the tiniest bit of blush.
While each tube is cute and tiny (with 7ml of product each) - You only need half a grain sticky rice (or 1/3 of a long grain rice for non-Asian reading this) to get a very noticeable flush so a tube will last til the dawn of time. Like many silicone-based products, this does separate a little during summer.
Dragonfruit is like raspberry sorbet that I ate yesterday. It's semi clear but with a bit of foggy opacity going on. The color is not light/pasty enough to provide a coverage so it tends to enhance imperfections a little. A shade like this would benefit from clear skin or flawless base makeup.
I just wear it on top of sunscreen, over my sunspots (with pride...OK I am just lazy). Dragonfruit gave a juicy peach that lasted for the whole work day then more. There is no face of the day (I tried in the stall, color didn't show up in picture at all) but I found a close representation of its effect.
This( the peach-butt from Kobito) is what I saw when I looked into the bathroom mirror this afternoon. I am thinking about mixing it with sunscreen or occlusive next time so I don't look like I have a bad case of Asian glow.
Dragonfruit on the mouth. It's scented (no weird taste), great at forming a shrink wrap and multiplying my lip lines. I never expected it to work as lip tint so it's fine with me. Among all the matte coney cream blushers, Shu Uemura Tint in Gelato is easier on the mouth.
Anyway, I think the color and finish are beautiful and rather unique in my stash. I should reach for it more during springtime.
