Becca Flowerchild: Another Luminous Peachy Pink Cheek
Blushes are one of my makeup weaknesses and I find it difficult to turn away from a peachy pink blush. Add sleek, functional packaging, a finely milled formula and my credit card is way ahead of me. Becca's Flowerchild blush is one of the best peachy pink blushes in my collection at the moment and it's going to be hard to top it.
Becca is a high end cosmetics line that hails from Australia. The packaging of many of their products, blush included, is a mixture of the Nars-like rubber material and sturdy metal. The blush compact is small and the sleek inside mirror makes this even more travel friendly. Despite it's small appearance, the blush packs 6 grams of product, or .2 ounces. That is the same amount you get in a Mac blush, for reference.
Flowerchild is a beautiful peachy pink shade with gold shimmers evenly dispersed throughout the blush. It is one of those "universally flattering" blushes that has skyrocketed blushes such as Nars' Orgasm and Deep Throat to beauty world fame.
The blush appears so lovely when swatched that my camera couldn't handle it's gorgeousness and proceeded to fail in the focusing department.... Nonetheless you can see how much color one swipe yields. The powder is incredibly finely milled and after a few days of use, I can barely tell I touched the pan at all. You can see me sporting this blush in some of my recent videos like this one HERE.
If it weren't for the fact that Becca blushes retail for $32 a pop, I would collect them all right here and now. If you are looking for a beautiful peachy pink blush that will be lovely for the summer time and you can swallow a heftier price tag, I highly urge you to check out Becca's Flowerchild. I bought this product using a sponsored giftcard from Apothica so essentially this was sent to me for free. I believe Flowerchild is currently sold out on Apothica's website but they have other Becca products to offer and they periodically restock. I am extremely pleased with my first venture into Becca cosmetics and I cannot wait to try out more of their line!
