Becca Mineral Blush in Songbird

Although blushers are my favourite makeup item, sometimes you stumble across a product that you never expected to like.
I bought Becca's mineral blush in songbird after tracking it down on eBay for just £7. At full price I might have overlooked it but I've been lusting after some becca products and theres several items floating across the Internet at discounted prices - I'm guessing because Becca got discontinued here a few years ago before making its way back. Even though I'm not someone massively fussy over packaging, I lurve the disc style packaging of becca. I think it makes it stand out a little and looks rather chic.

In the pan, songbird looks darker than it really is. When I first opened the compact, I never thought I'd be able to pull this off in a million wears but surprisingly on the cheeks, it translates to a warm coral pink with very subtle shimmer. The texture is slightly drier than some of my other blushes, such as illamasqua but the pigmentation is top notch (never thought I'd say top notch in a product review but there ya go). As its a finely milled texture, it sweeps over the cheeks without looking patchy or too intense. Its the type of blush that even pale skinned girls can wear as you can build the colour up. This lasts all day on my skin and gives me a lovely rosy glow. I'm so glad I managed to find this - though it is still available at space nk for £26. 

Have you tried any becca products?


  1. I would also be a little intimidated by this blush by looking at it in the pan but it's great that it sheers out a little on the cheeks. It does look like a pretty colour though, maybe I will try to get my hands on this!


  2. This does look a very dark blush, but I bet it make a gorgeous sheer wash! I'm sure I've spotted Becca products on Fragrance Direct, so it might be worth having a little peek there too! :)

  3. I haven’t tried any Becca products but this warm coral blusher sounds lovely.

  4. Really want to give some Becca stuff a go, I spotted some in my local discount beauty store yesterday so may pop back in (bargain hunter)!
