Vampy Lipgloss Swatches & Comparison

vampy lipgloss swatches-2

Lately, I’ve really been loving berry lips and vampy lips, and I’ve bought a few lipglosses to layer with my lipsticks to amp up the vamp factor! Today, I have swatches of Rimmel Black Diva, MAC Feelin’ So Good (reviewed here), and Becca Berry Twist.

Rimmel Black Diva // MAC Feelin’ So Good // Becca Berry Twist

As you can see, the Rimmel gloss is a true black.  The MAC gloss is a very deep plum brown, and the Becca is a true berry.  None of the three have any shimmer.

Rimmel Black Diva is quite sheer when applied. I don’t see myself, or most, wearing it alone – it’s definitely a layering gloss.

MAC Feelin’ So Good

Feelin’ So Good is a color that is wearable alone, but it really gathers in lip lines. So, it’s also best for layering – but it is an incredibly layering shade, and I absolutely LOVE it.

Becca Berry Twist is definitely the best shade to wear on its own. My lips weren’t in very good condition when I swatched it – you can see a horizontal line on them, which means I need to exfoliate, but it’s not really the lipgloss’s fault.  Note that the Becca gloss does have a rather strong sweet scent – I don’t really like it, but it does fade quickly.

I’ve also swatched all the glosses over a berry lipstick, Wet n Wild Ferguson Crest Cabernet. Here’s the lipstick alone:

It’s a really lovely bright berry, and one that I’ve been wearing frequently! I have a review of it and all the other Wet n Wild Perfect Pout lipsticks here.

Here is the same lipstick with the Rimmel lipgloss. It tones down the brightness, and somehow brings out the purple. I like this, but I don’t think I love it.

Here is the lipstick with the MAC lipgloss (or lipglass). I love this, I love it SO much.  It’s deeper, a bit more plum, but not too dark, and just a gorgeous shade overall!

If you’d like to see this lipgloss over several other shades (reds & a vamp), please see this post.

Adding the Becca gloss also deepens the Wet n Wild lipstick, but doesn’t change the color as much as the other two.  It does tone down the brightness, and is a really lovely color – a great combination.  I’ll be wearing this combination in the future for sure!

As a final note, due to reader feedback, I’m experimenting with zoomed-out lip swatches that show more of my face.  Do you like them, hate them, are you indifferent to them? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Becca Beach Tint Quick Swatches

Becca Beach Tint Swatches – Sephora store lighting

I wanted to see how all the Becca Beach Tints compared, but I couldn’t find swatches of all of them together online – so I went to Sephora and swatched them all. However, I did not think ahead to bring my camera, so this is a cell phone picture in store lighting; it’s not the most color- accurate photograph I’ve taken! It does show how they compare, though – I was considering buying Raspberry, but unsure if was too close to Dragonfruit, which I own. Now I know that they’re definitely different enough to buy Raspberry!

Becca Beach Tints sell for $25 and are available in some Sephora stores and on Sephora online.  They are designed to be used on both the cheeks and lips. You can read my full review of Dragonfruit here.

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, 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!
