BECCA Mineral Blush in Wild Honey

I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season! The product in this post was definitely a bit of a holiday splurge. I’ve been intrigued by BECCA Cosmetics ever since they appeared in Sephora. After reading Becca at The Beauty Sample’s review of Sweet Pea, I was inspired to try a BECCA blush. I ended up purchasing Wild Honey.

On Sephora.com, Wild Honey is described as a peachy nude. I think of nudes as having a beige or brown base, but other than that, it’s a term that can describe such a range of colors. To me, colors like Wild Honey look less like any one single color and more like a blend of many. I uploaded an image of Wild Honey onto a Color Palette Generator (have you seen these, by the way? for all my fellow color fanatics, this is such a fun tool), here are the tones it came back with:

So as you can see, the blush is a blend of muted warm browns, pale burnt orange-y beige tones, dusty pinks, and light salmon peachy pinks. On my warm-toned skin, it leans more orange-peach than pink.

Wild Honey is incredibly buttery smooth and blendable. It’s a very soft and natural shade, but pigmentation is buildable, although it does maintain an underlying sheerness. I was recently reading a post by Sunny at Mostly Sunny where she described a product as being intentionally sheer. This is a perfect example of an intentionally sheer product. It’s beautifully formulated and highly pigmented, but not designed to give opaque coverage.

The finish is somewhere around a satin-matte. Like the Lippy Girl Oragnic Mineral Blushes, the first ingredient is Mica. I’m assuming this gives both blushes their not-flat-matte finish, although I’d say the BECCA blush is slightly more glowy than the Lippy Girl. I love this finish for blushes – they give you the slightest bit of highlight that won’t show up as shimmer or glitter, even in the most unflattering office lighting.

      Thank you for your comment, Sarah! I don’t think I’ve even seen the nail polishes, I’ll have to check them out. ♥

    The color is lovely! I love Becca Cosmetics. :) One of my favorite brands!

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com Catherine

      Thank you for your comment, Katherine! This is my first Becca purchase and I’m impressed! What are your favorite products? ♥

  • http://mybeautysample.com/ Becca

    EEKS! Thank you so much for the shoutout, dear Catherine!! I feel so honored :D

    And YOU GOT THE SHADE I WANTED TO GO FOR NEXT!!! It’s so pretty I am swooning right now!

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com Catherine

      Just giving credit where credit is due ;) Thank YOU for showing this product! I had the hardest time choosing between Wild Honey and Sweet Pea, I went back and forth at least 4 times haha. This shade would be beautiful on you – I think it’d work for a lot of people, but particularly good for light-medium warm skintones! ♥

    I have Damselfly and it’s easily one of my favorite blush formulas out there! I love how soft and pretty it looks, and the lasting power is amazing! I am waiting for them to come out with more shades, because I’d LOVE to own more!

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com Catherine

      Ohh I looked at Damsefly, it’s SO pretty! I think I remember it being similar to Wild Honey but brighter? I’ll have to go check your site for it. I’m so impressed with these blushes – the texture and colors especially. The only thing stopping me from rushing to get more is the price point ;)

  • Adeline

    Oh I might have to check these out. I haven’t tried Becca yet, but I’ve been eyeing their beach tints for awhile.

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com Catherine

      Thanks so much for your comment, Adeline! It took me a while to purchase anything from Becca (definitely outside my usual price range), but I’m really glad I did. I actually have a review & swatches of their beach tints coming up! ♥

      • http://spicedropkisses.blogspot.com/ Adeline

        Fantastic! I’ll look forward to it.

    Hi Catherine. I love the Becca Mineral blushes! They are a favorite. I have Songbird, it’s such a beauty. I’ve been thinking about picking this up as well, loving it! I also love the color generator! I’ve never seen that, what a helpful tool. I’ll probably be uploading photos all afternoon, haha. Love it :-)

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      Haha, it’s a little addicting! When I saw they give you HTML color codes, my first thought was YESS, now I can perfectly match my blog’s link color to my favorite lipstick ;)

      The Becca blush formula really is beautiful. I actually love it now even more than when I first reviewed it. Songbird looks so pretty… really every color in that line is appealing to me. ♥

      I’ve been absolutely loving it. Thanks so much for your comment! ♥

  • Holly

    Hi, thanks for the post! I’m looking for the right peachy nude blush :P Have you tried Everyday Minerals’ blush in “Daydream”? I think it would be nice to see it in a comparison with these, too :)

    • http://buyingcrueltyfree.com/ Catherine

      I haven’t tried it but I’ve seen a lot of great blush shades from that brand. Everyday Minerals seems to have so many beautiful nude blushes… there were a couple very light beige-y nudes I almost ordered a while back. I’ll have to look at Daydream again! Thank you so much for leaving a comment, Holly! ♥
