Chrissy Teigan will get me, man. She actually does — and never simply because she made considered one of my favourite face/eye palettes of all time.
Um, have I discussed within the final 5 minutes how a lot I am keen on the BECCA X Chrissy palette? Yeah, you do not need to twist my arm to get me to put on bronze eyeshadow. LOL.
Nicely, Chrissy is again with one other BECCA vacation collab, and it’s additionally beautiful, particularly in case you have heat undertones and medium brown pores and skin.
We’re speaking bronze lids, rose gold highlighter, rosy nude lipstick and an entire lotta nude gloss, a.ok.a Karen’s Make-up Desires Come True, or Ok.M.D.C.T.
There’s two LE vacation kits, and each of them can be found now at Sephora.
BECCA Glow Kitchen Equipment ($44)
This equipment accommodates three objects, and errrrthang is new. These are never-seen-before formulation, which may be very thrilling to make-up weirdos ? like yours really. There’s a unfastened rose gold highlighter, a matte nude rose liquid lipstick, and a pot referred to as Glow Souffle Eye Shadow & Face Highlighter in Cinnamon Churro with a bronze eyeshadow within the flip-cap high and a creamy golden mousse highlighter within the jar. (Facet notice: The packaging appears to be like a LOT like these outdated Tom Ford duos.)
I couldn’t wait to strive Cinnamon Churro. The delicate bronze eyeshadow feels virtually creamy, so it’s loopy horny blend-able, however the frosty end and massive flecks of glitter make it…problematic for 40-something lids. If I take it up too excessive into my crease — which is simple to do due to how gracefully the powder glides throughout the pores and skin, and you understand I prefer to go HAM on that @ss in the case of mixing — I look a lot older than I’m due to mah superb strains.
Lovely bronze shade, although… Le sigh. If I have been 22, I’d be on it like fried hen on waffles.
Enjoyable reality: The mousse highlighter within the duo smells like cinnamon buns, that are considered one of Chrissy’s favourite candy treats… And now I’m craving cinnamon buns with further icing, ha ha.
Um…the place was I?
To place the system in context, the mousse is denser than a Tom Ford cream shadow however much less dense than a Chanel cream or a MAC Paint Pot.
So, principally, it seems like a make-up marshmallow (which is nice), however, just like the eyeshadow, the mousse is filled with bling, so it will get a tough go from me due to my expertise strains.
Sadly, I’m not going to be reaching for this pot very a lot, but when Connor have been a youngster, I’d give it to her in a heartbeat.
To all of the younger bloods on the market studying this, initially, do you ever get ANY of my ’90s references? Second, you’ll have enjoyable with this. I can’t put on it, however possibly you possibly can, and if that’s the case, you completely ought to.
Some ideas the opposite issues within the equipment…
Lip Souffle in Crimson Velvet
- Light-weight mousse glides throughout lips
- Seems to be and feels much like MAC Retro Mattes Liquid in Burnt Spice.
- Unflavored, unscented
- Stays on in the event you’re gently consuming or ingesting however disappears in the event you’re inhaling a bag of kettle corn like your life will depend on it (true story).
- No settling into horizontal lip strains, so no cat butt lips!
- Dries out my lips a little bit, however general I prefer it and hope BECCA does extra colours.
Confectionary Glow Powder in Cinnamon Sugar
- Frosty end, tremendous shiny
- Small, cute glitter
- Unfastened system is hella messy
- Seems to be like a unfastened model of Rose Gold highlighter from the BECCA X Chrissy Palette
The take-home message is that this: This deserves mad love in the event you’re underneath 30, however in the event you’re over 40, I’ll meet you within the aisle with the anti-aging serums, my buddy.
BECCA Lip Icing Glow Gloss Equipment ($29)
These 4 mini glosses (three nudes, one pink) scent and style like vanilla, and so they have a a non-sticky medium-weight system that jogs my memory of the MAC Plushglasses or a Chanel Glossimer.
The shades work completely with the BECCA X Chrissy Teigan palette — virtually like Chrissy was occupied with it when she picked the colours.
I’ve to reapply these about each two hours, and after I put on them my lips look lush and pillow-y as a result of they’ve received that entire shiny-but-not-too-shiny motion taking place.
I’m shocked I like this equipment greater than the opposite one, however I simply suppose it’s extra helpful for me. I do know I’ll put on all the colours, on a regular basis.
The take-home messages is that this: This equipment is an all-rounder that ought to make anybody pleased, irrespective of their age.
Your pleasant neighborhood magnificence addict,
