Becca Lip & Cheek Creme in Rosebud

This is a post of a long-forgotten haul that was done months ago. I seriously never got down to reviewing it because I was getting far too lazy when it comes to using my makeup babies nowadays. Work-wise, it is just BB cream / 2 way foundation followed by brows, cheeks and lipstick. Weekend was worse..... either the same as workday or just plain naked awful skin out of the house, hahaha. Yah, I am getting lazy and I shouldn't!!!

So anyway, this long forgotten haul was none other than Becca Lip & Cheek Creme in Rosebud. I don't recall when I heard about this brand before but I was briefly introduced to this product by Tracy a few years back when she raved to me about this gem that she found hidden somewhere in her stash. I wasn't a fan of cream or liquid blush at that time because I was a staunch supporter of 2 way foundation which I find doesn't go well with cream of liquid blush. Imagine you have powder foundation on and when u gently blend in the cream or liquid blush, you are sweeping away the foundation? I'm not sure about you but at least that's how I felt. However, years has passed and I actually prefer liquid foundation for that natural and uncakey look which is just perfect for cream or liquid blush. After slapping on the foundation, gentle blend in the blush and set with loose powder, PERRRFECT! :)

Please pardon the 'sweat' on the product but I guess this seems inevitable in cream product. So here we have Becca Lip & Cheek Creme in Rosebud. It is housed in a cute rubbery case and comes with a small compact mirror in the case. I like how thoughts are being put into this design since it makes it so convenient for ladies to touch up (cheek or lips) on the go. I chose Rosebud which is soft pink which leans slightly warm. When swatch on the skin, it looks really light and subtle but this is exactly what I like about this shade as I prefer blushes which gives me that subtle glow instead of looking strong and scary.


The texture is extremely smooth and application was a breeze just by using my fingers and patting it in. I do not need a lot of product for it to show on my cheeks and after setting it with loose powder, it stayed on for approximately 4 - 6 hours for me.

Do you have any Becca Lip & Cheek creme? What would you recommend for my next purchase? :)

    2. I think Watermelon is a safe bet and it seems to be one of their best selling colors. I love that you can build it up from a sheer wash to a very bold cheek. I'm obsessed with these beach tints right now. They may seem expensive for how small they are, but you literally only need a pin-sized drop.

  2. I love the texture and quality of these but somehow can't make myself fall in love with the packaging. Other than that this is a great face brightening color.

  4. I laid my hands on my first Beach Tint (Grapefruit) recently and I love it! Haven't tried any of these at all, though with my devotion for the brand I imagine it's only a matter of time!
