The Standout: Becca Luminous Blush
The Standout is a new series I decided to start where I will narrow in on the standout shade in a palette and give an alternative to get the same feeling. Of course, this will be based on my personal opinion and taste, so you may not always agree with what I consider to be the standout shade. The alternatives I suggest will not always be exact dupes, but reminiscent of the shade. I've learned over the years that some shades give you a similar feeling or look once they are applied on your face.
This time the standout is a product rather than a shade. Becca released a four-pan palette in collaboration with Chrissy Teigen back in May 2017. The palette had two highlighters, a bronzer, and a blush. Unfortunately, I didn't like the way the highlighters sat on my skin and the bronzer didn't show up on me at all. Even if I liked how the highlighters looked, they appeared near identical to each other on my skin. The luminous blush that was included however was amazing. Although I did like the color of the blush I didn't think it was worth keeping the whole palette for one of four products. So I decided to return the palette and buy one of Becca's single luminous blushes in the shade Dahlia.
I typically stick to matte blushes because I often get breakouts on my cheeks, but I was pleasantly surprised that this satin blush does not accentuate any texture that I have. The luminous blush line has a total of 6 colors including Dahlia and they retail for $34.00.
I no longer have the palette to show you, but it is still available for purchase for $46 on Becca's website if you are curious to learn more about it.
