BECCA Beach Tint in Fig

Thursday, February 28, 2013
A while ago, a friend was kind enough to split a BECCA Beach Tint set that Sephora had online. Since I already had Watermelon (previously reviewed here) but wanted Fig, Eileen from Of Lacquers and Laces and I went halfsies. This smaller sized tube suit me perfectly (I use my full sized Watermelon all the time but after three years I'm finally coming around to the fact that I will never finish it) at only .14 fl oz compared the normal .24 fl oz.

Here it is swatched on my bare skin. On the left a bold heavy swipe, on the right it is blended out. You might be thinking, "Uh, Mimi. I don't really see anything on the right side" and I'd have to agree with you. Unlike the other BECCA Beach Tints I have tried, Fig is not as pigmented. It is a caramel tan in the tube but dries to a color with a little more warmth, a bit of a apricot tan.

Here I'm wearing it on both my cheeks and lips. I don't consider my lips to be super pigmented nor do I consider them to lack natural color, they're somewhere in the middle. But as you can see, on me Fig actually becomes a nude shade and mutes out my natural lip shade. On my cheeks, it's pretty very close to my skin color (in between NC20-15, MUFE HD 117). I guess you could call it a natural cheek color... if you meant that it is so natural, you can't see that it is there. I bet for those with even fairer skin it might look like a very lovely natural flush but for anything darker than light-medium, I dare say it is a bust.

On the lips Fig wore quite well, like my other BECCA Beach tints. I might use it to mix with Dragonfruit to brighten it up.

I'm also wearing:
Brows: NARS Bali, NYX Brow Shaper
Eyes: NYX HD Eye Shadow Base, Laura Mercier Rich Coffee shadow, La Femme Eye Liner Sealer, Dior Nude Look Duo, false lashes
 Black Radiance Perfection Complexion, MUFE HD + Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, Guerlain Meteorites Perles d'Azur.

Have you ever encountered a product where one shade wasn't as good as the other colors in that line? Not as pigmented or not as smooth?
