I’m Dancing Like a Maniac Over Hot Pink BECCA Beach Tint in Lychee

Wearing Becca Beach Tint in Lychee ($25) on my cheeks and lips

Dear Universe,

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. 🙂

PRICE: $25
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora stores, sephora.com and beccacosmetics.com

Picture it…

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…

Notice the sad Snookie boot in the lower left-hand corner

…and he’s napping like he’s never napped before.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    I might have to try a beach tint one of these days, they look fabulous!

    I also love Tabs’ belly. Give it a rub from me!

      Hi Chelsea,

      I really like them; they’re great both on their own and layered with other products.

      Oh…and what’s this about Jiji pulling all the socks out of your drawers?!

      • Chelsea says:

        I came home from class last night, and a HUGE pile of socks and tights was in front of my sock drawer. I know he’s done this with my pajama drawer a bunch of times (he pulls the PJs out of the drawer and then naps in there) but he’s never done this with my socks.

        I thought I even closed the drawer, but I must not have…

  4. Sunny says:

    OOO this one is so cute! I just got the Best of Becca set and there’s a Beach Tint in it. Can’t wait to try! I’ve only heard GREAT things about them!

  5. Kim says:

    Happy Friday! This post totally made me laugh. I’m glad you enjoyed Flashdance. And it will also make it funnier when Tommy Boy does it after cow tipping. 🙂

    On a makeup note, looking at your pic made me feel like it was spring. Seriously, what a great, glowing look!

    • Karen says:

      Happy Friday to you too! Flashdance was super cheesy fun. Some of the songs I haven’t heard in YEARS. I still love ’em. Remember Gloria? I’ve been blasting it all day.

      • Kim says:

        I do! Especially since one of my friends thought she sounded fantastic singing it (she did not). We still laugh about it and she still tries to convince us that she sounds good. And that she’s singing the correct words (again… not). HAHA!

    OOh, love these Beach Tints! Watermelon has been my absolute favorite…I’ll be getting this one soon 🙂 You look lovely, Karen!

    Furrget the beach tint! Look at TABS and his tum-tum! <3 Is there an eye tint named Tabs Amber, yet? That would be purrfect :-D.

    PS: I love Becca eye tints and beach tints-perfect quick makeup on the go.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Musical,

      That would be kind of awesome, wouldn’t it? A shimmery, bronzy amber with tiny flecks of glitter. 🙂

      I love the Eye Tints, too! Do you have a fave shade? Right now I’m wearing Gilt.

    Tabs is so cute! The tint is lovely too.

  10. Chris El says:

    I just ordered a bunch of Becca beach tints and passed on this because it looked too bright. I was wrong. Thanks for the free shipping hint!

    I know it’s a shame, but I’ve never tried one of these Beach Tints. Or anything from Becca for that matter! Totally on my wish list, but if they have one that tastes like fig, I’ll NEED to start with it…
