If you could help me find that iTunes gift card I got for my birthday last June, that would be great, because I have this sudden, uncontrollable urge to don a black leotard and dance like a maniac, a maniac on the floor.
Why this sudden urge to dance like I’ve never danced before? I dunno (Flashdance). I have no idea (I watched Flashdance for the first time last night).
Life is a mystery, but I do know this: when I’m pointing and twirling in my leg warmers and the sweat’s streaming down my face, the makeup on my cheeks and lips will tough it out just fine.
You see, I’ve been wearing BECCA’s new hot pink Beach Tint in Lychee ($25) during our monsoon-like weather this week (over it!), and basically, it’s the ish.
I just shake the tube, and dot and blend a minuscule amount of this multitasking water-resistant cream on my lips and the apples of my cheeks with a finger. The resulting matte pink flush looks natural, but resists water unnaturally well, even when the rain is coming down sideways.
Special offer from BECCA: This Monday, December 10, BECCA’s offering “Unconditional Complimentary Shipping” on their US website. Free standard shipping on every order, any size, at beccacosmetics.com for one day only. No promo code required. Offer expires on Monday at 11:59 p.m. PST.
If you’re a complete blush klutz, creamy Lychee will make you look like an expert. My skin just laps it up (works on both bare skin and atop foundation), and it’s a cinch to buff out any edges.
I’m amazed by how evenly it applies.
Have you ever used tints that concentrate more color in some areas than others? That happens to me a lot, especially on my lips, but not with Lychee or any of BECCA’s other fab Beach Tints.
I also think that Lychee, like the other Beach Tints, smells and tastes great. They have tailor made flavors and fragrances, like Dragonfruit, Fig, Guava and Grapefruit.
For a few brief seconds on these cold, wet mornings, right after I apply Lychee on my lips, I pretend I’m chillin’ in front of Matsumoto’s Shave Ice on Oahu’s North Shore with a lychee shave ice in my hand (complete with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, azuki beans and condensed milk), yum!
Lychee and BECCA’s other long-wearing, water-resistant Beach Tints are perfect for rainy days, beach vacays and that dramatic denouement in your Flashdance stage routine, when you lean back in your chair, pull that chain and WOOSH! — get doused with water.
Tabs twirling in a dance studio. His husky little legs are pumping up and down in his black leg warmers while Maniac bumps in the background…
Truth is, he really is a maniac on the floor…
…and he’s napping like he’s never napped before.
