More BECCA Lost Weekend

I've been mean meaning to return to the BECCA Lost Weekend collection for a couple of weeks now. I have already shown the palette and my recreation of the promo look. As well as the Lost Weekend palette the collection includes three new nail colours, two new mineral blushers, a lip balm and Fig Beach Tint.



The Fig Beach Tint is actually part of the permanent line and I have reviewed this in a guest post on Zuneta previously. The Beach Tints are somewhere between a cream and gel formula and are water-resitant. I find they last very well as a cheek colour but I can always feel it on my skin. Fig is a mauve-pink colour and fits very well with the other colours in this collection.



From the moment I clapped eyes on Billy Tea, I knew I had to have it. Whilst the other items I have shown you were press samples, Billy Tea is something I bought for myself. Billy Tea is a chocolate brown creme, it reminds me of OPI's Over The Taupe. I have a number of similar colours and I can do a colour comparison if this would be of use to anyone. As with Tangerine Dreams, I like the brush and the rubberised handles of the BECCA polishes. The fact that they are free from formaldehyde, toluene, camphor and dibutyl phthalate is good news too. The two other colours from this collection are Saddle Up, a caramel nude and Toasted Marshmellow, a pinky brown.

I do not have any of the mineral blushes to show you. Both colours are quite muted, nude shades and fit well with the natural look of the collection. I did get opportunity to swatch these and they have a nice finely milled texture. Sweet Pea is described as a rosy plum nude and Wild Honey, a peachy nude. I may cave on one of these as I love a neutral blusher to sculpt the cheek.

I love the lip butter balm that was released with the collection. I'm not ashamed to admit that my favourite things about it are the fact that it's a stick so there's no need to get my fingers sticky and the packaging is sleeker than your average balm. It's packaged as a lipstick with a screw down lid and I'm assuming this is the same packaging as their sheer lipsticks. The balm also smells and feels very good. It has good staying power and no petroleum.

The Lost Weekend collection is available from BECCA counters now. If you don't have a counter nearby it is also available online from their website, Zuneta and other online stockists.

Disclosure: I bought the nail polish, the other items shown are press samples.
