As soon as I saw images on Makeup4all for BECCA's 10th Anniversary collection I knew I was done in. I love palettes and I love BECCA's cream products. Turkish Rose happens to be a favorite of mine. I received both palettes in the mail this week. I'll tell you a little secret, If you buy something from BECCA on-line in December you will receive a coupon for an amazing discount in January (along with some yummy BECCA lollies that taste like Passion fruit).
There is also a slight change to the packaging, the metal cap on the palette is polished to a reflective shine unlike the brushed aluminum of past palettes. Say Hi to Tux my wee dog in the background. He thought these smelt so good he would eat them, not today buddy.
This is the Vintage Jewel Pallette which is intended for deeper skin tones. Starting at the to left going clockwise we have Crème Blush in Hyacinth, Lip Gloss in Cosmopolitan, Crème Highlighter in Beechnut and Lip & Cheek Crème in Snapdragon. These were a bit sweaty due to the humidity that day, but work great just the same.
To confuse you I swatched them in a different order. Lip Gloss in Cosmopolitan,Crème Blush in Hyacinth, Lip & Cheek Crème in Snapdragon and Crème Highlighter in Beechnut.
I have to say I love Snapdragon, a cor-ally/apricot with gold shimmer it seems like a brighter version of Byzantine. the gloss is a lovely deep plumy/red with shimmer and has a smooth, slightly tacky texture. Beechnut is far too dark for me at the moment but after a spray tan with will work well as a shimmery bronzer and maybe an eyeshadow?.
Once more for the love of pretty colours.
Dusty rose is a palette that will work for me perfectly when I'm at my palest.
Working from the top left going clockwise we have Crème Blush Turkish Rose, Lip & Cheek Crème Tuberose, Crème Highlighter Narcissus and Lip Gloss Cassini. Turkish rose is my favorite blush - full stop.
When I am pale, I am scary see through pale. I need colour in my face but if its to bright I look silly. Turkish rose provides the perfect subdued blush for me and when applied in conjunction with Narcissus on cheek bones you get an ethereal glow and BECCA knows how to glow like a lady. Not like some crazy clubber. Cassini is like a pinker sister of Turkish rose (it is my secret dream that BECCA make turkish rose into a Sheer tint lip colour) and looks really pretty and understated on lips. Tuberose is perfect for days when I want a little brighter colour on my cheeks or lips and as usual comes in the fantastic Lip and Cheek cream formula.
This palette is a combonation of genuis to give you the perfect no make up makeup, polished, glowing and flawless.
These are both being packed into my bags for my trip to New zealand, I think they will the ultimate travel palettes for lips and cheeks and I feel like I should get back ups?
Yes BECCA you have done it again, your superior colour and texture chioces have won me over once more.
What do you think of BECCA's 10th Aniversay Platettes? Which is your pick or favorite?
