Becca Mineral Blushes Reviewed!

I picked up my first Becca blush in the shade Flowerchild over a year ago. I absolutely love it and have been wearing regularly throughout the year. I featured it here in last year's favourite Spring/Summer blushes post.  I was so impressed with it I decided to order the shade Wild Honey a couple of weeks ago from SpaceNk Link!. Although I have worn Flowerchild all year round, I think both of these shades are particularly ideal for Spring and Summer - as both of these shades brighten up the face and leave a subtle sheen on the skin.
I really like the pigmentation of these blushes, they can be applied lightly for a sheer wash of colour or they can be built up for a stronger look, they apply evenly and blend out beautifully. I was also really impressed with their wear-time, as they last about 8 hours on me.
There is very finely milled micro-shimmer running through these blushes - although the shimmer is visible in the pan, it translates into a subtle glow when applied to the cheeks.

Flowerchild- This is a beautiful, warm peachy pink shade with a coral hint to it. It has a very small amount of finally milled micro-shimmer, which leaves a gorgeous sheen on my cheeks.

Wild Honey - This is a warm peachy, golden shade with a slight yellow undertone. And again it has micro-shimmer through it. I love to use this shade to add a little colour to a bronzed look.

I also really like the packaging of these blushes. They are compact, sturdy and sleek - with brushed steel lids surrounded with a plastic, rubberised trim, as well as a plastic rubberised base (reminiscent of the Nars packaging). Each blush also has a small mirror in the lid.

Although these blushes are on the pricier end of things at £26, I think they're worth every penny. Each blush contains 6gs of product, they apply evenly and blend out beautifully.Their lasting power is excellent - I love the formula! My ultra sensitive skin more often than not reacts to face products. However, my skin has not reacted to these blushes! (see the ingredients below) .They are talc, paraben and fragrance free. They are also infused with vitamins A, E and C.
If your budget allows, I would recommend for you to try these out! I've been so impressed with these Becca blushes, I have since picked up a highlighter and a bronzer from them (reviews will be up soon)!
