I first caught a glimpse of Becca's fall promo pictures in July (if you didn't catch it, mosey on over to their website) and was smitten by the dark berry gloss featured on one of the models. It caused a frenzy among a few of my beauty blogger friends as we dug around for a comparable shade, and just couldn't find one quite like it. Now, it's finally available, and in my possession. I've waited three months to try this, you guys. That's pretty high on the expectation front.
Becca Berry Twist Ultimate Colour Gloss swatches nothing like what you see in the tube or on your lips. It's kind of a weird creature, if you ask me. What you see on your arm is what I think of as a happy berry shade, while on lips it's a deep plum, even with one swipe. I'm glad, because it's exactly the color we were looking for.
This is the first time I've tried a gloss from Becca, but I feel like it's the start of a happy new relationship. The gloss smells like melted marshmallows in the tube but the scent dissipates when applied to the lips. It's moisturizing, long-lasting but weightless, highly pigmented but doesn't stain or bleed - what's not to love?
Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss in Berry Twist retails for $24 and is available at beccacosmetics.com. In case you missed the announcement, Sephora recently started carrying Becca Cosmetics as well.
On a side style note, I've been enamored with cowl necks this season! I haven't done my fall wardrobe update yet but I can't wait to get a few new sweaters to keep warm in what I predict will be a ghastly winter. I'll need things with major neck protection with my new haircut.
Also, I tried, but turns out I can't stop harping about Chanel Notorious (sorry). I used it on my eyes because the cat-eye felt bare paired with the intense lip, and turns out it looks pretty good there too. Seriously, do I need a back up?
