BECCA Cosmetics Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé in Raspberry/Opal

3 June, 2014

So I have had my eyes on the BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés ever since they were announced earlier in the year.  To me, they just looked so interesting and lord knows that I am a sucker for new cheek colours and products.

BECCA Cosmetics describes them as:

A four-in-one air whipped soufflé formula that adds a flush of colour to cheeks.

And trust me, they were not kidding.  Each Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé comes in a pot that is no bigger than a MAC Paint Pot.  Honestly when I first opened it up, I thought it was going to be the same consistency and I was kind of puzzled as to just how that was going to work for cheek colour.  Well, I was wrong.  While the Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés might be roughly the same size as a MAC Paint Pot, they are nowhere near the same consistency.  And that my friends, is a very good thing.

The BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés are super light, fluffy and delicate (why do I sound like I am describing an actual soufflé).  But really they are named so well because they really are like a soufflé.  Next up was figuring out the best way to apply it.

The answer is that there really is no right or wrong way, but I would suggest a densely packed synthetic cheek brush.  Not only will it help you apply product evenly, it will also blend much better.  I myself apply them with one of the brushes from the RealTechniques line.  You could also use a stippling brush or even just use your fingers.

Of the four that I picked up, Raspberry/Opal was the first one I tried out.  Described as ‘raspberry infused with golden opal‘ they really nailed this one right on the head.  It is the perfect berry shade and the opal gives it enough of a shine that it just looks so flawless.  I’ve done a few makeup trial runs for a few brides since picking up these soufflés, and raspberry/opal has been the one that I reach for time and time again.  With a wear time of 8+ hours with little to no maintenance needed once applied, you really can’t go wrong.

You can wear this one alone as your cheek colour, under a complimentary colour to give your blush more staying powder, or as a highlight.  The possibilities really are endless!

    Glad you’re liking this as well! I picked it up a few weeks ago and am totally smitten. The shade and formula are both so lovely :)

    • Nicole About Town

      They are great Jen. I had my fingers crossed that I would like them and funnily enough, I did.

  • Natalie Heather

    Oh my gosh, these are SO pretty!

    • Nicole About Town

      They really are, both on the skin and in the package.

  • jenn f

    shimmery!!! was swatching these at sephora and am undecided, but just b/c of the shades. they all look so dark for me

    • Nicole About Town

      Swatching them with your finger really doesn’t do them any justice Jenn. Then they go on super heavy, like my swatch above. You really need a stippling brush to do a proper swatch/application.

  • Jenn @ Scarlet Beauty

    I’ve been wanting these ever since I started seeing pictures popping up on Instagram. They are all so gorgeous! I haven’t been to TEC to see them in person yet. I’m trying to avoid doing that actually because I know at least a couple will probably come home with me and I’m trying to behave after my MAC Alluring Aquatics haul.

    • Nicole About Town

      Lol. I tried to resist Jenn, but in the end I went down not with a bang, but with a wimper!

  • Megan Joy

    I’ve seen these popping up on a few blogs and getting rav reviews! They look beautiful.

    • Nicole About Town

      They really just work for every skin tone Megan. I think that and their lasting power are really what is selling everyone on them.

  • Julie (Swatch & Review)

    I am so intrigued with these too. I swatched them in NY but didn’t buy it. Trip to Sephora soon?

    • Nicole About Town

      But of course. Man the damage I would have done in a Sephora NY store, lol!

  • Beyond Blush

    I haven’t heard about these yet! Love the colour of this one :)

    • Nicole About Town

      I love them. There are six in total. I have four and I must get the remaining two.

  • Chantal

    I love the colour!

    • Nicole About Town

      The colour is super gorgeous Chantal. I swatched it super heavy so it would really show up, but it can be applied as heavy or as light as you choose.

  • beauty ∞ infinitum

    Wow, that shade is gorgeous! Looks so cool in the jar too.

    • Nicole About Town

      It really is such a gorgeous shade; both in the jar and out!
