I don’t know why I keep trying to explain the “no makeup” makeup look to straight dudes. It’s one of those concepts they just don’t get. I got into a lengthy discussion with El Hub about the wonders of Becca’s $25 Beach Tints, and by the end of the conversation I wanted to pull out my toe hair! “If you don’t want to look like you’re wearing makeup,” he said, as if it was the most obvious thing in the world, “why don’t you not wear makeup?”
Sure, I tried to explain that it’s just a style, but all he could do was shake his head and mumble…
When I wear Fig, a creamy tea rose/pink stain for cheeks and lips from Becca’s Lost Weekend collection for fall, by itself on my cheeks, I feel like I look better rested and brighter, and not like I’m wearing a heavy product.

As for wearing it on my lips, I like the way it looks all by itself — a perfect my-lips-but-better shade — and beneath glosses like Make Up For Ever’s Lab Shine in S4 (from the new Wild & Chic Best of Make Up For Ever kit).
I’m a huge fan of Becca’s Beach Tints but not a huge fan of their $25 price. Thankfully, because they last all day long, I don’t tend to use very much. I also like that each color has its own trademark scent, and Fig, by the way, really does smell like fig!
On top of everything else, they’re oil-free and don’t contain preservatives or parabens. Not bad at all.
