BECCA: lip / cheek crème

24 Sep

I’m a busy kid. I have to go to class and do homework and stuff. Which is why I want my make-up to be relatively simple. Multi-functional make-up is an extra plus. I’ve been looking for products that do it all.

So I was very intrigued when I came across BECCA’s Lip and Cheek Crème ($29). Yes, lip and cheek cremes have been around for a long time. But I’ve always been skeptical. My grandma used to put her lipstick on her cheeks as blush, and it just didn’t work. And she’s a beautiful lady.

My verdict: Ok, ok. I could use this. I absolutely looved the color on my cheek. Very blendable and easy to apply. On the face it has the perfect amount of pigmentation. On the lips? Not so blendable. It comes out matte on the lip — which I normally like — but it didn’t work with my lip’s natural color. It kind of looked like play make-up, if that even exists. 10 minutes after application, however, the lip color looked nice and natural. But I don’t usually have the time to wait 10 minutes for my make-up to look acceptable.

I think the colors they have — which are all very pretty — would work nicely with paler skins. I do think that this product is worth it to buy even just for the cheek. It makes a phenomenal blush.
