Becca Tuberose Lip and Cheek Creme Swatches and Review

Tuberose is the smaller package on the left.

Lip and Cheek Creme is supposed to be a multi-use product for lips and cheeks. I found it too drying on the lips, but perfectly creamy and long lasting on my cheeks.

Just a few small dabs blended into my cheeks gave me a natural flush that lasted all day. Tuberose isn't greasy, slick, or heavy at all.

Tuberose is somewhere in between peach and pink with no shimmer or glitter. It leaves a soft glow, and I didn't need powder to set it.

Another winner from Becca!

Just a small plug for my sister- she is selling off some of her makeup right *here*. Happy shopping!

Becca Songbird Blush Swatches and Review

A certain person has been influencing me in my Becca purchasing. Songbird was first seen on Shades of Becca right *here*.

I have recently fallen for peach blush, so please don't tell pink blush I have been seeing other colors.

Check out the tiny UFO packages:

Lip and Cheek Creme on the left and Blush on the right.

Songbird is a coral with faint golden shimmer. It looks dark in the pan, but is sheer and buildable.

It looks closest to MAC Spaced Out in this picture, but Spaced Out is much more orange and frosty.

This is a flattering color, and a nice formula. It isn't chalky at all. It has just enough pigment to give natural looking color, without scary clown cheeks on fair skin. I will definitely be checking out other colors of Soft Touch Blush from Becca!

Becca Sheer Tint Lip Color Swatches and Review

I have hopped on the Becca bandwagon this year and discovered some new favorites. I ended up trying Sheer Tint Lip Color in Gisella and Estella. Both are very neutral and safe colors.

Check out the heavy metal tube they come in. "Becca" is stamped on the end of the cap, which screws on securely.

Gisella (top) is a rosy brownish pink. Estella (bottom) is a slightly pinkish caramel nude.

They have a very faint caramel scent, and are smooth like a lip balm. You can get more color with a couple layers, or a more sheer effect with one swipe.

I love the flattering colors which I think would work on a wide range of skin tones. I also love the sturdy and sleek packaging. This is a nice formula if you prefer your lipstick to look natural, soft, and glossy.

Chanel Black Pearl Swatches and Review

Look what I got my grubby little hands on recently.

I love the interlocking Cs:

My one Chanel polish was lonely. It was asking for a friend:

Black Pearl is a teal tinged grey with a delicate frost finish. It isn't frosty really, just pearlescent.
I think I am just making up words now.

It goes on smoothly without showing too many brush strokes. I used three coats here.

I love the teal flash it has!

How does it looked topped with Illusion D'Or you ask?

Pretty sweet!

For now I am happy with my tiny collection of Chanel polish. At $26 a bottle, I can't see it expanding much anytime soon.
