A while ago when I was bitten by the coral bug, I ordered Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush on Zuneta. I know that Becca is more famous for their Beach Tints, but most shades happened to be out of stock. Since I was getting Le Metier de Beaute Coral Nymph already, I reckoned a powder blush wouldn’t hurt!
The blush compact is really interesting. There is a silver part in the middle with the brand name etched on it, and the rest is brown rubber. It is so peculiar that even Dr. D was curious about what it is. Allow me to reassure you this almost never happens!
The blush might not seem big, but it does contain 6 grams (0.20 oz) of product just like most other blushes (Tarte, MAC…). The compact isn’t hefty, but it doesn’t feel like cheap plastic either which is a big bonus! It also comes with a mirror, which might come in handy!
Damselfly is a coral orange with golden sheen. The powder is silky fine without feeling powdery, and the sheen is subtle and natural. It practically blends itself out, and I’ve never had any problems with it not looking natural on me. The pigmentation is strong enough without the danger of overdoing it in an instant. The formula wears amazingly well as well! In Belgium it lasts all day on me, barely fading by the end of the day. Even in Taipei it wears 8 hours before being broken down by sweat and oil, but it wouldn’t oxidize or disappear!
I have worn it on top of Le Metier de Beaute Coral Nymph, and the combination goes from day to night. I am very impressed with the formula, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this particular shade to all those who have a warmer undertone. It’s so easy to wear in summer!
Here’s the ingredient list if anyone needs it:
Bottom line: Amazing texture, pigmentation, and color! Becca hits all the right spots with Damselfly, and it is a brand that I would love to get to know! If you’re looking for a good coral orange blush, make sure you take Damselfly into consideration!
