Becca Ultimate Berry Twist Lip Gloss

Ultimate Colour Gloss
in Berry Twist

The Holy Grail of Glosses!

Merry Glamness! I can't believe this in only post #4 in July, my goal was to be on at least #10 by now. This post is only on one Lip Gloss, but this is a Very Highly Recommended Lip Gloss! This is one of my most favorite Lip Glosses that I own and my absolute favorite Lip Gloss in it's color family. What I love most about this Gloss is the truly amazing Deep Plum Color! If I don't have much time to do a full face, the color of this gloss can add such life to your face! I love how putting just a little bit of makeup on, can make someone feel so much better. That's why I love this gloss so much. It has such a indescribably rich plum color, like nothing I have even seen before. It just makes you feel so beautiful, even if you don't have much makeup on.

The Color is Amazing. The Most Beautiful Deep Plum.

Berry Twist Swatched 

This lip gloss have been one of my Favorites since I bought it months ago. It reminds me more of a Fall gloss color because of its rich plum color, but it still looks amazing in the Summer. Let me tell you how I like to wear it in the Summer, since it is such an amazing color to wear. I like to wear just some tinted moisturizer, illuminating bronzer, mascara, and this Gloss (over the Becca Lip Priming Perfector™ of course). I have an earlier Post on the Primer if you are interested. The lip gloss really pops because of how pigmented the color is, so I actually like not wearing a lot of makeup with it. I like letting the Gloss be the focal point of my makeup look. It shows off how beautiful the color of the gloss is and your lips. I have not seen a more beautiful gloss color in my life and I am gloss Fanatic!

Here is the Skinny on the Gloss from Becca:

A weightless yet highly pigmented gloss that imparts ultimate bold colour and intense shine.

Dramatic formula delivers a long-wearing layer of bold colour and brilliant shine
Weightless texture goes on smooth, comfortable and never sticky
Formulated with antioxidant Vitamin E to nourish and hydrate while emollient oils provide glide, slip and comfort on the lips
Dermatologically tested
Free of: Parabens

Final Thoughts:

This Lip Gloss is so great not only because of it's rich color but because of how amazing it will look year round. It feels amazing on and not drying at all. I love wearing it now with not much makeup on, my hair in a bun and this gloss still makes me feel so pulled together and glam. I can't wait to wear it in the fall when I start to wear sweaters (jumpers) and really rock this gloss in a Fall Look! This gloss gets me excited for the Fall!

Merry Glamness,

Becca Lip Primer Perfector


Lip Priming Perfector

First of all, I would like to say, where has Becca been all my life. I had heard of the brand last year and had seen rave reviews of their products, so I checked out their website. I was impressed and thought, I have got to put them on my list to try out. Than, here I am at a Sephora VIB event, and right in front me is a whole section of Becca. It was like it was meant to be...The two of us to meet!

I am going to post on everything that I bought and believe me, I have been using what I bought for about two weeks now and I am loving it! I cannot wait to go back for more.

So here is the skinny on the Lip Priming Perfector:

What it is:
A lip-perfecting formula designed to smooth, define, and prime lips for long-wearing color that won’t fade or feather.

What it does:
Prep lips for perfect, lasting color. Formulated with Hyaluronic Filling Spheres to minimize the appearance of fine lines and Lipocire A to smooth and hydrate the lips, this silky crème creates an invisible canvas for long-wearing lip color that won’t fade, stray, or feather.

What else you need to know:
This Nude formula will not change lip color.

Now let me tell you what drove me to this product. I was obsessed with Benefit's Lip Plumper. Now it wasn't one of those clear lip plumpers that you put on and feel the tingling sensation. It was more like a flesh toned lip primer that they called a lip plumper. I would apply it over my lips, thus causing a more smoother, firmer surface to apply my lip products too. I believe that the extra layer of the product (it was a tiny bit on the thick side) was what caused the lips to appear to be fuller. Which is why they called it a Lip Plumper. Unfortunately they stopped making the product (I hate when that happens) and I was on a LONG hunt for a substitute. I could find many lip primers that were clear, but they would just dry out my lips and served no purpose. I could also find many lip plumpers, but to be honest, I really do not need my lips to be any bigger. I assure you though, they does not stop me from buying them and using them. I love to show them off and accentuate them, you got that right!!

Here is the Becca Lip Primer Color. It is a beautiful nude color.
You can layer it though to get that thicker effect,
to plump your lips.

I do want to state that for those who have tried the Benefit Lip Plumper. The Becca Lip Primer is not as thick and is defiantly no where near the color.

As you can see, the two compared are no where near
the same in thickness & color. Although, the Benefit color on top
is usually more beige flesh tone (like a concealer), I think it has changed
color with age.

I saved my Last Tube as a Tribute
to my "Hall of Famers" Drawer

So when I saw this lip primer on Becca's website I was drawn to it, because I could tell it was not completely clear. My theory was that it would act somewhat in the same way that the benefit one did, and not only would my lip products stay on longer but my lips would appear to be fuller. Just like with makeup on your face, you want to apply lip products to a more smoother, hydrated, prepped surface. It will not only go on better, but it will look better and last longer. This causing you lips to appear to be fuller. A well dressed lip, always appears fuller!

Final Thoughts:

I am OBSESSED with this Lip Primer! I plan on stocking up in case they ever stop making it. I never want to be in that situation again. I love using it under lipstick and gloss. If I am not wearing makeup, I will always have at least gloss on and this makes it stay on longer. I also like it better than the what I was using before, because I find it to work better and be more hydrating. The hydration is probably due to the hyaluronic filling spheres. Gosh do I love anything Hyaluronic!! Now if your looking for a lip primer, this is it! Why wouldn't you want your lips to look better and your lip products to go on and stay on better!!
