It's a Cheeky Situation: BECCA Beach Tint Duo Lip and Cheek


Never a fan of cheek tints. I can't seem to make the application right- fingertips or brush, it's always a disaster. But this woman is all about defying odds. Hahaha, trivial I know! Okay so I'm laughing by myself again as I type these words {weirdo}.

BECCA is one brand I've been meaning to try. I have read good reviews about these tints so I bought the deluxe size duo ($20, Sephora). Yeah, they're tiny considering that my palm is tinkerbelle


I'm a sucker for scents so the fruity hints definitely fueled my olfactory nerves. Squeezing the tube is a tad tricky, you have to do it in a calculated manner or you end up with more than you actually need. Waste not want not beauties! It's quite creamy and easy to apply on the lips. Cheeks? oh well it's a different story.

So I experimented on how to get the best out of this cheeky situation. Aside from sanitary reasons, it was hard for me to blend it using my fingertips. But see, I'm never a tint person to begin with so it could be in the technique.

What worked then? I used a stippling blush brush to apply and blend (on top of the foundation) and then sealed with a translucent powder. As a lip tint, it dries to a matte finish.

Watermelon on cheeks and lips: natural-looking flush
Fig on cheeks and lips- nada!
Watermelon is a repeat-buy, Fig is ignore! As you can see, I look healthy in Watermelon and sickly in Fig (it won't show up on my medium skin tone; those eye bags didn't help either hahaha!)

Have you tried this tint yet?

  2. I've been curious about these. I'm with you on cheek tints, they've never been my thing. I like either cream or powder. Do you feel like they dry out your lips at all?

    1. Hi Kayla, I find this Becca a bit drying when used on lips so I suggest topping it w/ gloss or layering w/ balm. Thanks for stopping by!xo
