What it is: BECCA Glossy Lip Tints in Island Dream & Afterglow

Why this should be in your bag
Let’s face it: lipgloss is just a makeup staple. There is a rare brand here and there that doesn’t offer it (what is wrong with those people!?), but lipgloss is undeniably one of the most popular cosmetic products out there. Hence why I’m constantly on the search for the perfect formula!

BECCA’s Glossy Lip Tints are touted as “A long lasting translucent gloss that delivers radiant shine with a splash of color. Deliciously scented with a hint of strawberry parfait, this luxurious formulation is silky-smooth and completely non-sticky.”

How to use it
Because these BECCA tints are pretty sheer, I was expecting them to only be good for over-lipstick wear, but I’m also really liking them on their own! Island Dream is a soft, purpley-pink with micro-shimmer, while Afterglow darkens my already-pigmented lips slightly and gives them a golden sheen.

Like I said, feel free to swipe these on alone, but also look for great lip combos! Check out Afterglow over a true-red and Island Dream over baby pink.

CC Rating: A

These are getting an A if only because I’m so surprised by them! When I first saw BECCA Glossy Lip Tints, I thought, “Oh just another lipgloss,” but these truly stand out from the pack! They are not too sticky, but have good staying power and add an ever-so-delicate shimmer along with color (depending on the shade). I’m a shimmer-phobe but I have no problem handling these. They’re not over-the-top at all and can even be worn to class.

Available in 25 colors, you will never have a problem finding a shade to suit your needs. Some may find the $23 price tag a bit hard to swallow, but you’re getting quality product from the packaging down to the gloss!
