Becca Dragonfruit Beach Tint – Review & Swatches

Becca Dragonfruit Beach Tint

Becca Dragonfruit Beach Tint

As part of my Sephora Friends & Family order (I was lucky to get a code from a friend), I bought Becca’s Dragonfruit Beach Tint – my first Becca product!  Beach tints are described as a “blendable crème stain,” and they can be used on both lips and eyes.  Dragonfruit is, according to Sephora, a “poppy pink” – though I would describe it as more of a reddened pink.

Becca’s Beach Tints are packaged in a small tube with a nozzle.  It’s definitely the right packaging choice for the consistency of the product – it’s easy to squeeze out exactly the right amount. The tube is small (.24oz / 7ml), but given how little you need, it’s plenty to last a long time.  The only complaint I have is that the Beach Tints do not say the shade name anywhere on the package.  The colored stripe is different for each, but if you have several similar shades, it might be difficult to use that to determine the shade.

As mentioned above, I would describe Dragonfruit’s color as a reddened pink.  The lovely Drivel About Frivol has some comparison swatches here; she also has a photo of completely unblended Beach Tint, so you can see the consistency – which I would describe as a creamy gel.  Dragonfruit is very pigmented, but easily blendable.  It’s totally weightless on my cheeks, but slightly drying on my lips.  On my cheeks, it started to fade after about four hours, but lasted 6-7 hours.  On my lips, it was gone after two hours and a snack – but I did wear lip balm over it; it might have lasted longer if I hadn’t. Do note that it has an artificial fruit scent; I dislike the scent, but it disappears quite quickly.

In the following photo, I’m wearing Dragonfruit on my cheeks and lips:

And a lip close-up; you can see that it adds color to my lips, but doesn’t change the texture of them at all.

Becca products are newly available at Sephora.com, and some, but not all, Sephora stores.

Overall, I would absolutely recommend Dragonfruit. I like the consistency, especially for cheeks, and I like the versatility of using it on both cheeks and lips.  I do wish it wore a bit longer on me, and I wish it was unscented!
