I try: BECCA's Sheer Tint Lip Colour


I’m a huge fan of lipstick rather than gloss, and make no secret of the fact that I think a creamy-yet-matte lip knocks the socks off a gooey, glossy mouth any day. I’m always searching for great sheer lipsticks though as a daytime/weekend option, as even for me there are times when a bright red lip is a little uncalled for – walking the dog, playtime in the park with my son for example!
I’ve recently fallen in love with a collection by the always-fantastic BECCA known as Sheer Tint Lip Colour lipsticks, which offer sheer, hydrating colour with a touch of subtle shine, in a range of nude colours especially selected to flatter all skin tones. Deliciously scented with a natural light vanilla/caramel scent, they are infused with a moisturizing formula containing Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Honey and other essential fatty acids with natural anti-oxidants to leave lips soft, moisturized and protected. The perfect choice for a winter’s day, they apply super easily for a wash of fresh-looking, creamy and super flattering colour. Anti-feathering and anti-bleeding, they are also paraben free, which gets a big tick from me. Design-wise, the sleek and sexy metal case is perfect for travel – the lid twists and locks to prevent in-handbag, in-flight disasters.
You can apply it directly to your lips from the tube or paint it on using BECCA Lip Brush #20 for long-lasting wear. A nude liner applied beforehand will take things that much further, and if you really must get all shiny on me then slick on some BECCA Glossy Lip Tint over the top.
The colour I’ve been sporting is Vendela - a beautifully neutral rosy nude – and I defy you not to find a favourite amongst the ten super wearable shades.
