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!

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!
