• BECCA • Duo Splits • Shimmering Skin Perfector® Mineral Blush •
As the collaboration between Youtube phenomena Jaclyn Hill and BECCA continues, the collection of duo palettes, holding both blush and her iconic highlighter, I needed to get my hands on them.
Finally in Dubai, in Sephora, the full collection including the larger multi-shade palette is hitting the shelves. I’m not a palette kind of girl so I therefore opted for the Duo version; much more portable and easy to handle. This is shade GOLD POP/Pamplemousse, a warm peachy pink blush that goes fantastic to red lipsticks as well as nudes. It is versatile and easy to wear. I enjoy the new deluxe version of the BECCA packaging as well, without the usual rubber lining. This golden version fits the collection beautifully.
The duo works well for a subtle way of contour and highlight, as with all of the BECCA range, it is all about the skin, and about all skin tones. there is always some shade for everyone and as a women in need of colour I love that.
Ingredients wise, it might be easy to think that just because it says “mineral blush” it is clean and perfect for all skin types. I want to highlight (no pun intended) the fact that the duo holds both Mica, Talk and Petrolatum so in case you’ve got a sensitivity to these ingredients, I encourage you to do some patch tests before applying it all over your cheeks where we usually get some clogged pores.
I’ve got sensitive skin but I’ve not experienced any bad reaction while wearing the duo – I apply it with a light hand. It is a pretty product and I don’t need to touch up during the day; the pigments in the blusher is quite strong! I like it ♥
