If you haven’t already noticed, I’m a big fan of the Becca Ultimate Colour Glosses. They have a gorgeous colour range, and have a feather light, non sticky texture that feels great on the lips all day. The standout shade for me out of the 7 shades I’ve tried is still Berry Twist– for it’s incredible pigmentation and wear time.
I was given the opportunity to review 4 colours from the Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss range- Malibu Punch, Flamingo Crush, Palm Breeze, and Autumn Punch. I’ve also purchased the shade ‘Hummingbird’ so keep and eye out for the upcoming review.
Price: $42 Aus rrp, $33.60 at Ry.com.au
Malibu Punch is a bright tangerine orange. It looks quite intense and pigmented on application, but becomes a little more muted and ‘natural’ looking after being on the lips for over 10mins. I love how it looks with neutral eye makeup and some bronzer.

I have an unhealthy addiction to sepia toned makeup- and have a rather large collection of taupe lip products. Too many Burberry ads? Perhaps. The Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss in Autumn Punch is the newest addition, and I adore it.
For the latest Antipodean Beauties makeup challenge, we had to create a neutral makeup look- so I cheated and used an image from an upcoming blog post featuring my new Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss acquisitions (courtesy, of Ry.com.au – thanks guys). This is a pretty typical neutral look I like to do either for work, or to pair with bright clothing.
– Maybelline Color Tattoo Bad To The Bronze blended on the mobile lid stopping before the crease
– MAC Cork eyeshadow in the crease
– MAC Sumptious Olive eyeshadow on the mobile lid on top of Bad To The Bronze
– MAC Mystery eyeshadow to darken crease and outer third of bottom lashline for that doe eyed effect.
– Bobbi Brown Gel Eyeliner in Espresso Ink to line upper lashline and smudged into bottom lashline on the outer third.
– MAC Bronzing Powder in Bronze

The Radiant Skin Satin Finish foundation (70AUD/ 40mL) is a matte finish, medium buildable coverage liquid foundation. The amount of coverage (enough to even out my skin tone, and allows just a hint of my freckles to show through) is the perfect amount for everyday. It is designed for normal to oily skin types, and is formulated with “sebum-absorbing properties” and a “soft- focus complex”.
My skin is on the dry side, so this product isn’t a great match for my skin- it comes out super matte on me and tends to emphasize dry areas on my face. I imagine it would work better with oilier skin types.
When I told Effie from BECCA about this, she recommended trying prepping the skin with the BECCA Radiant Primer (a dewy finish primer) first underneath the foundation- this certainly makes the foundation work much better on me (pictured below). Using a mineral sunscreen underneath also helps, but the primer is better for longevity. Keep scrolling for my review of the BECCA Radiance Primer..
Clearly I was not paying attention when I applied my lipstick here. Sigh.
The BECCA Radiance Primer (55 AUD, 40mL) is a water based, silicone free primer- this is my first illuminating primer. In the past I’ve used the Napoleon Autopilot Primer, MUFE HD Primer, Smashbox photofinish primer – all of which give a more or less matte/velvet finish. I really love the dewy glow that this primer gives me, and it’s quickly become one of my ‘desert island’ beauty products.
Not only does it give dull and/or dry skin a perky glow- it also does a great job of keeping foundation looking fresh from morning to late evening.
There is gold microshimmer visible in the product straight out of the tube. At first I was worried that my face was going to be a sparkly disco ball- but thankfully once blended on the skin the gold shimmer is no longer visible and you are just left with a natural looking dewiness.
I like using a pea sized amount of this underneath my foundation, but you can also blend it in with your foundation if you want to amp up the dewiness (see this in action on Reika from Front Row Beauty). This one is probably best for normal to dry skin- BECCA has a range of other primers, including a mattifying one for oilier skin types.
Aqua (Water), Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Glycerin, Cetyl Alcohol, Hydrogenated Palm Kernel Glycerides, Glyceryl Stearate, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Ceteth-20,1,2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum, PEG-75 Stearate, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides, Polyaminopropyl Biguanide, Spilanthes Acmella Extract, Tropolone
