Becca Liquid Crystal Glow Gloss in Topaz x Gilt

The 50% off sales not only had lots of Anastasia Beverly Hills products, but also Becca Light Chasing items, including the Liquid Crystal Lip Topper Glow Glosses. Since I bought a couple of Anastasia glosses from the sales, I just purchased one from Becca which looked unique and totally different to all the other glosses I currently own.

The lip gloss comes in holographic gold cardboard packaging, which is different to Becca’s standard brown matte packaging.

The gloss itself comes in a test-tube looking plastic packaging, with a rounded base, meaning you can’t stand the product up on its own. The lid has a miniature version of the Becca silver compact with a frosted brown cap.

The applicator is a slanted doe-foot, and picks up a generous amount of product with each dip inside.

The shade Topaz x Gilt is a warm brown shade with a blue-to-purple glitter shift. Despite its unique colour, the floss is still very wearable alone or as a topper.

It has a slight artifical french vanilla scent which doesn’t linger long, however I prefer the vanilla scent of the Anastasia glosses if I had to choose between brands. I also didn’t like the taste of the gloss, so I’m glad I didn’t purchase more than one from the range!

Like the Anastasia gloss formula, this Becca gloss was very comfortable on the lips with only the faintest amount of grit from the glitter particles. While I still prefer the formula of my other lip glosses, I’m glad I picked up this Becca gloss for the colour.

Post-Meccaland Anti-haul

For all the exciting new launches at Meccland, there were others that bored me. Here are the items I’m not going to buy once launched online and in stores at Mecca Maxima!

Too Faced Life’s a Festival collection

The unicorn trend is so early-2017 and is starting to feel very childish. I love a bit of cutesy packaging from time to time, but this collection crosses a line. It’s a no from me. And the same goes for the Tarte mermaid collection launching at Sephora Australia soon. Can we jump off the mythical-creature-inspired makeup bandwagon? Please?
