Cult Favorite for a Reason: Becca Grapefruit Beach Tint

You know how it goes: when something has been raved about time and time again, you have to see for yourself! I am more than impressed with Becca powder products, but their Beach Tints are one of the iconic product lines that put the brand on the map. Today I have Grapefruit to share with you!

Becca Beach Tints have the same packaging as Becca Eye Tints (like Baroque, which I reviewed here). I did have a little problem with product separating with this tube, but it is fine once the really liquid part has been squeezed out.

Becca Beach Tints are supposed to be “blendable crème stain tints lips and cheeks with a natural, believable wash of water-resistant color,” and I can’t agree more. I was very hesitant in the beginning because most shades in the line-up seem so bold and bright, but let me assure you: this thing blends itself out and ends up looking incredibly natural!

You only need a tiny bit each time, and it is easy to control how much you are getting because of the squeezable tube.  Cyclopentasiloxane (silicone) is the second ingredient of this product, and I do feel the kind of “smoothness” that comes with it. Normally I find it easier to blend out cream blushes with a brush, but with Grapefruit fingers work just fine. It looks scarily orange when it is squeezed out, but once it is is blended out, it is a very natural coral on me (Becca calls it a coral pink, but on me I don’t see much pink). I have tried it on top of tinted moisturizer, BB cream, and foundation combined with different powder on top, and it always works!

This is how Grapefruit looks, from when it is squeezed out, half-blended, till fully-blended.

On my cheeks Grapefruit is a coral with a very slight silky sheen, and it lasts well. On my lips it looks rather matte, and it lasts for around four hours (with food and drinks). The texture is barely detectable on the lips. It is not moisturizing, but it is not drying either. Have I mentioned how this smells? It smells like fruit. I wouldn’t say grapefruit per se but definitely something sweet and fruity!

You can see Becca Grapefruit Beach Tint on my cheeks and lips here:

For the rest, I have Tarte Rainforest Black on my lids, smudged out with the sponge end. I also blended Bobbi Brown Wheat to soften the edges and patted a black gel liner into my lash line. I ran a bit of Wet n’ Wild Envy over my lower lash line to help the pencil last longer.

Bottom line: I really appreciate the formula of Becca Beach Tints, and the packaging makes preserving it and keeping it hygienic easier. The amazing blendability makes them no-brainers for busy mornings. Becca Grapefruit is a coral that would be great for spring and summer, though I don’t find it too out-of-place for the moment because of how natural it is!

Have you tried any of the Becca Beach Tints? What shade(s) would you recommend?

PS: Muffin evidently isn’t loving me back quite as much!

PPS: Zuneta has some Becca products at an incredible discount price for the moment. What’s more, if you spend more than 40 pounds on an order, you get a travel-size tube of Becca Resurfacing Primer for free! I will review it soon, but consider it recommended especially for combination/oily skin types!

    It’s a very subtle shade on you, Sunny. Very natural. I only tried Watermelon, and I really do love the shade. However, having experienced it separate on me after 6 months, I’m a little hesitant about trying another one…

    • Sunny

      Aww I’m so sorry to hear that! I wonder if it has something with the temperature and so on. It might…

  • Chris El

    How random that I was just playing around with my beach tints this evening! I have them in circulation with Peach on my counter at the moment. I love how you paired this with the teal green eye pencil.

    • Sunny

      Haha glad to hear you’re also a fan! Thanks! I just thought Rainforest Black would work well with this color :)

  • Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    Grapefruit is one I’ve always wanted so that one will definitely be mine soon enough!! I have only tried Watermelon and Fig–I bought the mini duo during Sephora’s sale. Fig was the one I was most excited about and had been dying to try since first hearing about them but sadly, it doesn’t show up almost at all on my skin tone :/ Watermelon is quite pretty though–it looks SUPER natural on the cheeks and really nice on the lips too!

    • Sunny

      Aww it’s a pity Fig doesn’t show up on you! Watermelon seems like another popular one and it looks like a fun pop of color!

  • beauties

    really nice colour :) Muffin wasn’t in the mood for modeling 😉

    • Sunny

      Haha well Muffin can model, and she can be cuddled. It’s just that these two things can’t happen at the same time!

  • Icaria

    Oooh I’ve never tried them but now it’s on my list. Muffin could be my Fifi’s sibling, she too is a Tuxedo kitty. :)

    • Sunny

      Aww say hi to your Fifi from Muffin, and try a Beach Tint!

  • Jacqueline

    The Beach Tints smell great and have a great finish but I find that after a while they tend to separate and I have to shake them really hard to get them to mix before applying.

    • Sunny

      This tube came a bit separated, but I don’t have any problems with my Eye Tint, so I guess it really depends!

  • Larie

    I do want more Beach Tints, but I think Raspberry and Lychee are on my list 😀

    • Sunny

      Oh yeah I was definitely looking at Raspberry! That would be slightly different from my existing stash.

  • Angela @ The Unprofessional Beauty Blog

    I haven’t tried any Becca product yet but I really should because I’ve been reading a lot about them. I think I’m going to start with Beach Tints.

    PS: Your kitty is soooooooooooo cute :)

    • Sunny

      Oh yes that would be a great move!

      Thanks I’ll let Muffin know :)

  • Taylor

    Isn’t the texture so unique? Good unique :-) grapefruit is so light! It gives a pretty glow though. Luckily none of the tints have separated on me.. Yet! Nothing like the mineral blushes though :-)

    • Sunny

      Yeah the mineral blushes have a very special place in my heart! These are so fast to use though, and there’s no brush to clean afterwards!

  • Emi at Project Swatch

    Oh, this is so pretty! For some reason I though Grapefruit was a really nude / neutral shade, but the coral is lovely.

    • Sunny

      Hey Emi, if you really sheer it out without building it up at all, you can hardly see it’s coral. I like to build it up just a bit because I am all about coral :)

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    SO beautiful on you Sunny! This is one of my faves of the Beach Tints too! I have 4 and want more!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Tracy! I will slowly start a collection too it seems :)

  • Marla

    I’ve tried two shades of the Becca tints but just didn’t like the consistency or the fruity smell. I ended up going back to my YSL creme de blush.

    • Sunny

      I’ve heard great things about the YSL ones! I don’t know why I haven’t given this brand more consideration. Maybe it’s a good time to start!

  • Joyce (bronzerbunny)

    I seem to have forgotten to use these lol. But anyway, Grapefruit looks really pretty on you! :)

    • Sunny

      Haha you should! It’s something you can smear on easily in the car!

  • Catherine (@bcrueltyfree)

    AWWW Muffin… haha! I have the Sephora kit with Watermelon and Fig and recently got Grapefruit… I’ve only worn it twice so far, but I think it’s my favorite :)

    • Sunny

      Haha yeah her disgruntled lil face 😉 I’d LOVE to try Watermelon! It looks like such a fun shade!
