Brand: Becca
Range: Butter Lip Balm SPF20
Shade: Untinted
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • A nourishing lip with natural Tahitian Vanilla, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Honey, Vitamin E and essential fatty acids
  • SPF 20 protection against sun damage
  • Feels buttery smooth in a snugly comforting kind of way & softens lips.
  • Whilst the texture works great under creamy lipsticks, any lip flaws become noticeable again (although slighly softened) once the balm is completely absorbed (around 5 minutes on dry lips).
  • Packaged in twist top “lock” lid making it secure against mishaps in your makeup bag.
  • Paraben-free
  • Verdict:  As much as I love how moisturising & buttery smooth this lip balm is, I find the price tag quite steep ($20 USD / $40 AUD).  Whilst the price is on par with other high-end stick lip balms, for just a few dollars more, Clinique’s Repairwear Intensive Lip Treatment ($26 USD / $48 AUD) has anti-aging & provides more & longer-lasting moisture in a stick balm.  Try it if you like a buttery smooth lip balm, but there are other more affordable lip balms out there that work just as well as a lipstick base.

Lips look softened on immediate application, but any flaws return to normal once absorbed.

RRP: $40 AUD

Brand: Becca
Range: Glossy Lip Tint
Shades: Bellini, Amaretto, Daiquiri
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Translucent colour with a super fine shimmers, Becca Glossy Lip Tints are smooth, non-sticky and high in shine
  • Scented with a hint of strawberry parfait
  • Available in 19 shades, I was offered to try Bellini (sheer gold shimmer), Amaretto (neutral rosy nude) and Daquiri (peach pink shimmer).
  • The three shades were only subtly different once on my lips, with Daquiri giving the most visible peachy shimmer tint.
  • Verdict: This lipgloss will appeal to those who share Becca’s beauty philosophy centered on the “natural, flawless look”.  For more colour payoff, I suggest checking out the more vibrant shades in the range such as Maraschino (watermelon red) and Fuchsia Crush.

Brand: Becca
Range: Beach Tint
Shade: Watermelon
Swatched by yours truly:akisa

  • A lip/cheek stain that’s much easier to blend than cream blush.
  • It’s kiss-proof, water-resistant, and dries to a semi-matte but non-drying finish.
  • Available in 6 shades, with each shade scented according to its name.
  • Don’t be afraid of Watermelon just because it looks dark. It’s actually very sheer on both lips/cheeks and I didn’t expect to find Watermelon to be flattering on me!
  • Oil free, preservative and paraben-free. Contains anti-oxidant vitamin E
  • Tip from Becca: Layer Beach Tint under power blushes, bronzers and lip balms/glosses for added intensity.
  • Verdict: Not just for beach babes! I love it for its watercolour finish, perfect for Spring/Summer.
Goes on glossy but dries semi-matte.

This watermelon shade is not berry, and it would be awkward to file under rhubarb, so I’ve added it as another colour tag!


RRP: $42 AUD / $25 USD
Available at Becca counters now.

This product was given to me for consideration as part of the Melbourne Beauty Blogger Event.
