The first thing to note about the forthcoming Becca Luminous Blush is that they have a very shimmery overspray on the top which makes you think you’ll look like a Christmas tree. Although they’re very, very high on sheen, once you get past the spray, the physical glitter is mostly gone, leaving behind a much less sparkly, illuminating sheen.
See what I mean?! These are swatched at very high intensity (but, I’m thinking eye-lids, here!) and the best brush to use is one that diffuses very well – start with a super light touch and add more if needed.
Above, starting with the light pink shade and going round are: Foxglove (a slightly raspberry pink), Blushed Copper (the most sheeny and luminous), Tigerlily (orangey coral) and Snapdragon (a coralish rose gold).
These are the shades out of the direct sunshine. In light, you will get some shimmer, there is no doubt about that but even though I am not really a shimmer fan, I did think they were so pretty on the cheeks (especially Snapdragon which would be my personal pick). The Becca Luminous Blush collection feels like the perfect, glowy, fresh looking holiday blush – twinkly cheeks I think do best on holiday; much as I wouldn’t want to glitter my way into London on work afternoon, cocktail hour and a setting sun by the beach is a whole other thing! Becca Luminous Blush has already launched in the US but they’ll be hitting SpaceNK any time now.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
I like Becca Mineral Blush for a natural looking blush with a matte finish – it’s on SpaceNK here but I cannot find a way to bring up the colour options – so odd! Even though they’re powder, I don’t find this formula too drying.
