Becca Cream Blush in Hyacinth and Petal

I have fallen in serious love with Becca lately, especially their cheek products.  Their cream blushes and beach tints are just so effortless and gorgeous.  I actually own 3 of Becca's cream blushes as of now but only have pictures of Hyacinth and Petal for today.  The third is Byzantine which I plan to swatch soon.

Hyacinth is a gorgeous bright pink.

It blends out to a really healthy flush or can be built up for more of a pop that is nice for spring.
Petal is actually a lip and cheek creme but I prefer to use it just on the cheeks. The texture is a little to drying for my lips, but its lovely orangey peach color is right on trend for spring.
Just like Hyacinth, it can be sheered out or built up accordingly.
I think I will like Petal even more when I am more tanned as I do pick up alot of color over the summer.

Overall I find the Becca cream blushes give a nice dewey glow.  I am absolutely in love and plan to purchase more in due time.

Becca Pressed Shimmer Powder in Princess

O the lovely UFO style packaging of Becca. This stuff is sturdy.  Although I have heard the Becca's PSP's have a tendency to crumble, I havent seen that in mine.
This is a shimmer powder (in case you couldnt tell from the name :P).  Its meant to be a highlighter but I think this is a little pink to be a highlighter for my skin.  Princess is a bronzey pink.  I like to wear it over blush or sometimes in place of blush, but only if I'm wearing strong eyes or lips.
Gorgeous, isn't it?

I'm back! And Guerlain Abricot Gourmand 840 Gloss

Hi everyone. So sorry to have not posted in a while. My class schedule ended up requiring a whole lot more reading than I initially expected.  Well that and I became slightly obsessed with the tv show Chuck, so I watched all the previous seasons.  I have been thinking about it and I think to help me post more I will make my blog more about pictures and swatches than reviews. 

Also, I am planning on doing a new blog sale soon so stay tuned for that. 


Here are some nice pictures of Guerlain Abricot Gourmand gloss. It has been around for a while and it part of the permanent line.  I haven't heard anything about Guerlain planning to discontinue this, so you should be able to find it at your local Guerlain counter or in Sephora.
Orange is supposed to be really big these coming months, so if you don't have any orange lip products. I would say this is worth checking out.

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask.
