Becca Sheer Tint Lip Colour

The first thing that drew me to these lip tints was the scent, they have the most amazing caramel scent. I love flavoured and fragranced products, and I just couldn't resist the amazing smell. I'm also a huge fan of sheer lipsticks.

I've had my sheer tint lipsticks for over a week now, and I'm in love. In fact I haven't been wearing any of my other lipsticks or glosses since I got these, which is amazing as I usually change lipsticks and glosses every day.

There's no flavour (which is a shame), just the lovely caramel scent that fades quickly upon application. Using this lipstick is like using a lip balm, that's how good they feel. One layer provides a sheer wash of colour, and more layers provides a heavier colour. They have a gorgeous glossy finish, and last well, I only reapply about twice during the day.

There are only two things I don't like about these lipsticks, and that's the size and price. They're only 3 grams, when the average lipstick is 4 grams. It doesn't sound like a lot, but when you compare the size difference it's very noticeable. And the second thing is the price, they cost $48 each, which is excessive.

But of course that didn't stop me, and I bought two of them, Gisella and Yasmina.

Gisella is described as a sheer caramel nude on the website, but as you can see from the swatch, it's more pink than caramel. On me it looks like a sheer pinky nude.

Yasmina is a sheer mauve nude, which looks just like the swatch.

They're both beautiful colours, and I'll definitely be buying these lipsticks again, even though they are small and expensive!
