Girl, you know how BECCA is kind of informally known as, like, the HBIC of beachy-lookin’ makeup? Anyway, I tried wearing beachy wave hair today to go with the BECCA Sunchaser Palette ($34) on my cheeks, and I can’t decide whether my mane looks more artfully tousled or just plain messy.
Eh, I’m gonna go with messy.
Sunchaser is an LE cheek palette that came out earlier this spring, and it’s still available. It’s a wonderful warm-toned blush, bronzer and highlighter, and if you bring it home, you’ll pretty much be covered through the end of summer.
Don’t worry about golden tan Ipanema Sunset bronzer leaving a galaxy o’ glitter on your cheeks, because even though it looks sparkly in the pan, the finish is more satiny matte on cheeks (if you love it so much that you can’t live without it, there’s also a full-size pan of Ipanema in the permanent line).
Coral Apricot Blossom blush is matte, too, and hot damn! — look at that pigment. When was the last time I only needed (ONE!) swipe for both cheeks?? I can’t remember. But that’s what is happening here, so use the lightest of touches when you sweep it on those apples.
I’m pretty sure it’s an LE shade because I haven’t seen it in the BECCA permanent collection.
It’s been a minute since I’ve worn BECCA Opal Shimmering Skin Perfector, the warm golden highlighter from the permanent line, and I don’t know if BECCA changed the formula, or if my taste in highlighters has evolved, because this one is much more shimmery than I remember. I ended up buffing it down, which wasn’t hard because Opal is just as easy as ever to blend.
Actually, now that I think about it, everything in this palette is easy to blend, so you’re unlikely to accidentally paint blush/bronzer/highlighter stripes on your cheeks (which I’ve totally done before, the horror!).
I’m into it. I highly recommend this palette, especially for tan beauties, because those warm colors look lovely on toasty skin.
And even though the blush, bronzer and highlighter are all WAY pigmented, they’re still pretty easy to blend. As long as you blend a little, you shouldn’t end up with obvious lines on your cheeks.
The $34 price also seems reasonable overall for a high quality product like this.
