Becca Beach Tint
Not only do I love this product because of it's name (Becca) but it provides a perfect pink for lips and cheeks and has a delicious watermelon scent.

Benefit's Coralista face powder combines the best features of the color with some really pretty extras that I loved. This shade is very pigmented and has the perfect amount of pink and orange that made it work with many different skin tones among our Palacinka testers. On very warm skin tones there was a bit more orange that popped out and on cooler I noted the pinks. This color worked well on shades as wide ranging as those similar to a Catherine Zeta-Jones through an Iman. I loved how flattering it was and how brightened up my face instantly. It should be noted that this is, in fact, a face powder, and not a blush. This just means that while you can certainly apply directly on the cheeks with a blush brush, as I did at times, it's really meant for highlighting the temples, cheekbones, bridge of nose and even brow bones. Please note: it looks VERY bright in the box, but it is light and sheer going on. There is a medium level of fine shimmer effect. With a light layer of the powder, it didn't produce a super bright color, but rather a glowing shimmer effect. (This means that it is perfect for using along with your favorite blush as well). However, because of the pigments, it's still a buildable color and if you like, with additional applications, you can achieve more of a true rich, deep color shade, which looks fantastic on skin tones in the Serena Williams range. The island themed box packaging is adorable and quite large, so this will last a fairly long time. It also has a really nice light citrus scent which I found refreshing. This is a wonderful additional to your makeup collection for Spring and you will definitely use it for seasons to come!

It goes without saying that the design of this eye palette, like many of the YSL palettes, is exquisite, unique and truly beautiful. But it doesn’t just stop there -- the colors themselves are wonderful and perfect for summer. There are 4 colors in the palette which were inspired by various African terrains. There is a deep chocolate brown (with a touch of eggplant), a true orange (with a touch of rust), a medium creamy yellow shade and a beige shadow. The brown and orange colors are bold, but were buildable if I wanted a more dramatic look. None of the colors has shimmer, they were silky and easy to blend and were a pleasure to play with and combine. The lasting power of the shadows was also good. I didn’t think I would gravitate towards the orange shade as much as I did. The orange was very flattering and not shocking or over the top in any way. I loved combining the orange all over the lid in a light layer with the chocolate in the crease and as an eyeliner on its own or over my eyeliner pencil. I also liked using the yellow and beige for a softer look. These shades are varied enough with darks, brights and neutrals that it will work with all skin tones as well. There is a lot of shadow in the pan and each is very pigmented. This combined with the beautiful limited edition palette design makes it definitely worth the price.
