Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush Makes Me Pray for Eternal Summer!

A while ago when I was bitten by the coral bug, I ordered Becca Damselfly Mineral Blush on Zuneta. I know that Becca is more famous for their Beach Tints, but most shades happened to be out of stock. Since I was getting Le Metier de Beaute Coral Nymph already, I reckoned a powder blush wouldn’t hurt!

The blush compact is really interesting. There is a silver part in the middle with the brand name etched on it, and the rest is brown rubber. It is so peculiar that even Dr. D was curious about what it is. Allow me to reassure you this almost never happens!

The blush might not seem big, but it does contain 6 grams (0.20 oz) of product just like most other blushes (Tarte, MAC…). The compact isn’t hefty, but it doesn’t feel like cheap plastic either which is a big bonus! It also comes with a mirror, which might come in handy!

Damselfly is a coral orange with golden sheen. The powder is silky fine without feeling powdery, and the sheen is subtle and natural. It practically blends itself out, and I’ve never had any problems with it not looking natural on me. The pigmentation is strong enough without the danger of overdoing it in an instant. The formula wears amazingly well as well! In Belgium it lasts all day on me, barely fading by the end of the day. Even in Taipei it wears 8 hours before being broken down by sweat and oil, but it wouldn’t oxidize or disappear!

I have worn it on top of Le Metier de Beaute Coral Nymph, and the combination goes from day to night. I am very impressed with the formula, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this particular shade to all those who have a warmer undertone. It’s so easy to wear in summer!

Here’s the ingredient list if anyone needs it:

Bottom line: Amazing texture, pigmentation, and color! Becca hits all the right spots with Damselfly, and it is a brand that I would love to get to know! If you’re looking for a good coral orange blush, make sure you take Damselfly into consideration!

What are your favorite products from Becca? Have you tried any of their blushes? What is your favorite coral blush?

    • Hey Esmay, Becca is not a BIG brand and I don’t think they do as much marketing as some others, but if you’ve ever laid one finger on their powder products you’ll know it’s a GREAT one!

  1. For some reason, the swatch on your arm reminded me of Benefit’s Coralista! I’m really drawn to the unique packaging but I’m not a fan of rubberised packaging. Having said that however you have tempted me into purchasing one of these! =D

  2. It’s a very interesting packaging idd, looks a bit futuristic if you ask me, hehe. Love the coral on you, I can’t believe you never had a coral blush before!

  3. Oh! This is the one Becca blush I own and I love it as well. It’s great for those days in which I just need some color on my cheeks and nothing too obvious. There isn’t any shimmer so it’s perfect for every day wear. I love it πŸ™‚

    Becca’s one of those brands I want to explore/learn more about as well, but it’s fairly expensive since they ship here to USA and the price tag always keeps me from indulging to much (I hear their shimmering skin perfectors are lovely too?).

    The color looks lovely on you πŸ™‚

    • Hey Libby, I have no idea that Becca is more expensive in the US! I saw the liquid highlighter but the bottle’s really too big for me (I very often forget to use a highlighter altogether) so I didn’t get it. Hoping to find a travel-size tube somewhere!

      • Yeah! Somewhat annoying that the products are more expensive, but I can’t complain too much as the US often gets more decently priced makeup (esp when compared to Australia!)

        Oooh! I’ll keep an eye out if I see a travel-sized one as well. I have a friend who mixes it in with her daily moisturizer for a glow (when really I know it’s just her excuse for buying such a big bottle xD)
