Ever since I reviewed some Becca products as part of my stint as a guest blogger for Zuneta, I have spent hours pouring over products, reviews and images trying to decide what I wanted to purchase for myself.
I am currently obsessed with this brand which hails from down under.
Becca doesn't come cheap but Beauty Bay has reduced their remaining stock, as they will no longer be stocking it on the site. I managed to pick out the best of what was left and this is what I bought. Zuneta has also reduced some items.
After comparing a number of reviews I decided on the Mineral Bronzing powder in Duende and Pressed Shimmer Powder in Athena. Both look similar in their pans from afar, but when up close the shimmer powder has a noticeable shimmer to it. I was surprised that Athena was the shade it was IRL actually, as the photographs I've seen dotted over the web displayed it as being lighter, so that was a welcome surprise. The shimmer powders come in a variety of shades and are also available in loose powder form too.
Becca compact powders are milled so finely that they will shatter easily if accidentally dropped or knocked on a hard surface. The bronzing power arrived with a couple of tiny chips which occured during transit, so I definetly won't be carrying this around in my handbag, same goes for the pressed shimmer powder.
The mineral bronzing powder comes in one shade, Duende, which suits all skintones (I really believe it does too). It's talc and paraben free and has no shimmer at all, which I'm very happy about. I'm on a roll with bronzers at the moment - first Ilamasqua Burnish and now this baby. Both powders are incredibly smooth and glide onto the skin, therefore I'm very impressed with the quality.
I also bought some more glossy lip tints as I like Dalquiri so much. I really like the texture of these, they're not sticky like MAC lipglasses and nor do they leave me with that nasty 'white gunk' on the inner lip which MAC lipglasses have a habit of encouraging after they've been on the lips for a while. These lipglosses are super shiny and 'glass like' - I love 'em!
I have my eye on a couple more cream blushes and can't wait to try out their famed foundations. Since writing this blog post, I've just placed another order ...oh dear.
