As soon as I saw the promo picture for this item, I knew I had to have it. The new Becca Beach Tint Shimmer Souffles are a combination of two of their best selling products; the Beach Tints and the Shimmering Skin Perfectors. From the outside, they have a marbled appearance of color and shimmer. They really remind me of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes upon first glance. These little pots are supposed to do magic, check out the description from Sephora below.
“This lightweight formula packs four must-have qualities into one formula: a powder to add a pop of color, a stain to give staying power, an illuminating highlighter, and a cream to deliver a flawless finish. Water-resistant, each pot combines Becca’s bestselling Beach Tint with a Shimmering Skin Perfector™ for effortlessly buildable, complexion-enhancing color, soothing hydration, and a youthful glow.”

So as you can see, this product does have a mixture of colors, but they really seem to melt together. I’m not sure if all of the pots look like this on the inside, but I was expecting to see more of a contrast between the guava shade (the tint) and the moonstone shade (the highlight). Because of this, I can only use this product as a highlight. It does not have enough color for me to use it as a blush.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a beautiful highlight, but I was expecting this to be more of a shimmering blush as opposed to a highlighter.
The texture of the Beach Tint Shimmer Souffles is very interesting. It is like a bouncy mousse. It feels kind of strange to touch, but the texture makes it really easy to apply. I just dab it with my fingers and apply to the areas that I want to highlight. This product blends like a dream, much better than a liquid highlighting product. If you are just starting out with highlighting products, this would be an awesome product for you to try because it makes highlighting effortless. On me, the product lasts 7+ hours with no fading. After blending it in, it sets and does not move. It also doesn’t transfer.
So is it a Hit or Miss??? I’m undecided. I really like the product, but it doesn’t provide the color that I hoped for. This one is in between a hit and a miss for me! I may try one more shade that seems to be much more pigmented; the Papaya/Topaz shade.
