Party with the Dusty Rose and Vintage Jewel Anniversary Palettes!
I love celebrating birthdays…well, other people’s birthdays. I swear, after I hit 30, I was like “give me cake, give me presents, and let’s pretend this never happened.” However, when celebrating for other folks, I am the planner, ringleader, and the person who sings “Happy Birthday” in the loudest, most obnoxious I can manage without getting stabbed by the cake knife (the key is to stand far away from the person holding the knife). What can I say? Birthdays are exciting.
I am especially excited to be celebrating Becca Cosmetics’ 10th birthday! We here at we heart this were honored they chose to allow us to party with them by letting us test out their new Limited Edition Anniversary Palettes.
I know, I know, usually it’s customary for the party celebrating a milestone to receive gifts, but Becca has come up with two mighty sassy celebratory offerings for their customers in the form of their Dusty Rose Anniversary Palette and their Vintage Jewel Anniversary Palette. Both circular palettes are housed in a cute little zippered carry all and are quartered off into four lip and cheek products in varying degrees of gorgeous.
The Vintage Jewel Anniversary Palette contains a classic crème blush, and three new beautiful products:
Crème Highlighter in Beechnut – bronzey gold (new shade)
Lip Gloss in Cosmopolitan – berry with silver shimmer (new shade)
Crème Blush in Hyacinth – yellow pink creme (classic shade)
Lip & Cheek Crème in Snapdragon – orange pink with tons of gold shimmer (new shade)
The Dusty Rose Anniversary Palette contains three classic shades of blush and offers a brand new gloss:
Crème Highlighter in Narcissus – opalescent peach nude (classic shade)
Lip & Cheek Crème in Tuberose – coral pink creme (classic shade)
Lip Gloss in Cassini – extra shiny dusty pink (new shade)
Crème Blush in Turkish Rose – rosy nude (classic shade)
I got to test out the Dusty Rose palette and believe this is a must-have if you have always wanted to try Becca’s wares, or if you already love Becca, but don’t want to keep multiple products in your purse or carry-on luggage.
Both palettes are packaged in a larger version of their sleek signature brown compact with silver medallion on the lid. And as mentioned, the compact comes in the most darling chocolate brown zipped pouch; meant to go everywhere you go and you feel so special pulling this out of your purse or makeup bag.
I’m already a fan of their crème blushes and lip & cheek crèmes, so the fact that this small package contains two of the most universally flattering shades made this blush whore a happy girl.
Turkish Rose is a great neutral rose shade and Tuberose is a bright coral on my fair skin. Both look gorgeous with a slick of the Narcissus highlighter at the tops of the cheekbones. Narcissus is also fantastic as an eye-brightening cream eye shadow, making this ideal for travel. I was worried that this would read as too peach on me, but it appears more golden with a hint of peach on my lids.
The lip gloss appears to be a medium pink in the pan, but applies as a lighter milky pink on my lips. I found this was most flattering when layered over top of the Tuberose lip & cheek crème, for a pop of color. For an added bonus, dab a little of the Narcissus highlighter in the middle of your lower lip for a bee stung look.
As with all of the other Becca products I’ve used, the staying power on these is pretty darn amazing. I have oily skin, yet their crème blush and lip & cheek crèmes manage to stay put on me for a good 4-5 hours, which is pretty fantastic. If I layer a little powder on top, I can eek out about 6-7 hours wear. The lip gloss lasts until I eat or drink something, but that’s typical of most lip glosses on me.
As those of you who are familiar with Becca, the quality is outstanding on these, from the packaging to the product. I’m giving this a solid 5 stars.
• Universally flattering shades
• Posh packaging
• Highly portable
• Would make a fantastic gift
• NONE. Go out and get yourself one – or both! (I’m an enabler.)
Sadly, these anniversary palettes look be be sold out on the US website, however they can still be found on the European Becca site (click the palette links above to shop) and at Becca counters.
