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.
