The first time I ever heard about Becca as a brand was when Fragrance Direct announced that they had some Becca "Beach Tints" in stock, and at ludicrously good discounts. I didn't really go out of my way to purchase any as I just didn't know anything about the brand. However, the influx of blogger reviews in the following weeks and months did finally pique my interest. Lots of posts contained references to other great products - such as the Shimmering Skin Perfectors - and this sent me on a good deal of swatch stalking and ended up with a good few hours of wasted time cooing over products on Space NK's website.
Although I have a healthy number of makeup brushes, recently I've really been enjoying applying my makeup with my fingers - and at a push I'll reach for a makeup sponge, such as Real Technique's Miracle Complexion Sponge. Because the Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés have such a thin consistency and offer such a sheer and natural-looking colour, I find that they're perfect to apply with your fingers. I've found that tapping the colour onto your cheeks, rather than trying to sweep it across, gives the best finished look as well as the longest lasting finish. The product seems to stick to my tinted moisturiser or foundation and just stays put, and even on bare skin I find that it lasts well.
As the Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés contain a mixture of Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfectors and Beach Tints, I find that using the Soufflés alone (without highlighter) is enough for a glowing complexion. Not only are the shades available gorgeous but they're also great for cutting down on the number of products you need to apply to your skin. If you love multi-functional make-up - minus all the gimmicks! - then these Shimmer Soufflés would be a great addition to your makeup bag. If you're stuck on what shade to go for then I'd highly recommend googling swatches (there are some great ones on google images), but it wasn't until I saw these in person that I truly understood how different they were to other beauty products that I owned.
You can find Becca's Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés, in a range of six shades, for £22.00 each.
