Gel blush

BECCA Beach Tint (or BBT as I fondly refer to it) is a beautiful 2-in-1 lip and cheek tint that imparts the perfect flush of color. Bag it!

Why BBT makes the cut!

These days, more than ever, space inside makeup kits and cosmetic bags comes at a premium, so to justify its inclusion, the product itself not only has to be out of this world but so does its packaging (unless you have lots of free hours to dedicate to decanting, that is).

Another bonus: it bounces, which means no more broken blushers on the studio (or bathroom) floor. We’ve all been there! Just because it’s in a small tube doesn’t mean you will use it up fast. It lasts. It’s a tiny tube of concentrated color, and a little goes a seriously long way. (more…)
