Becca Cosmetics is an Australian brand, known best for their extensive range of foundation/concealer shades (30 shades of foundation; 34 shades of concealer). W Magazine just named them one of the six best makeup brands you’ve never heard of — and they’re one of the very few brands to which I have no swatching access. They’re just not in Dallas.
Anyway, glossedup was so kind as to offer up a lip swatch of one of her favorite glosses from the line.
While Becca is a brand known more for their “perfect complexion” products — and they are very good — there are certainly some standout colour items. Sangria lipgloss is a gorgeous, toned-down, fleshy, pink-red, with a slight shimmer that translates onto the lip as a full glossiness rather than bling. They are less sticky than the average gloss, and have a reasonable lasting time with a corresponding pigmentation level. They are fragranced though, and I find the newer brush wands a little unwieldy. Other standouts: Cherrybomb (for a juicy but low-maintenance true red), Daiquiri (neutral peach), and Fuchsia (sheer blue-pink loveliness.)
