Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous Blush in Camellia

I have been a bad blogger. And no, I'm not just referring to my sporadic posting frequency. You see I was sent the full shebang from Becca Cosmetics - 6 of their Shimmering Skin Perfector Luminous blushes. When they arrived it was a real moment. They sparkle sensationally in the pan and they all have an allure that makes a blush addict's heart race. Yet a few weeks on and whilst I have dabbled in a couple I have become stuck, reusing the same colour day in and day out.

People, say hello to Camellia.

You know that lit from within shisse that bloggers spout on the regular, well this is the blush that will do it for you. It's a dainty ballerina pink (if you love Well Dressed or NARS Deep Throat you will ADORE this) that gives a glow incomparable to anything else. It looks like a glitter ball nightmare in the pan but one dab - and I mean one dab because...pigmentation! - and you get a shot of luminosity right on that cheek.

It's incredible and addictive.  Camellia is THAT kind of product. There is zero chalkiness or obnoxious glitter to contend with. The only way to describe it is as follows - imagine placing a rose lightbulb under your skin and turning it on full blast to brighten your face - that's the kind of glow we are talking about. While that description may disturb and confuse non-makeup lovers its one that I totally and very much "get".

Pass me that rose lightbulb and never turn it off!

I apologise in advance for the image below that you are about to be confronted with but try taking a decent picture of yourself with a DSLR when you are in your mid-30's and let me know how that turns out for you! It frightens me every time.

I can report that both Foxglove and Copper Sparkle (top row - first two featured) have the official thumbs up approval from me, although I am obviously not as committed to them as I am Camellia. However, at this point I will also say that the other shades blur into one warm-pink hodge-podge and are difficult to differentiate which I fear bodes negatively for my final review.

The Becca luminous blush formula is however sensational overall. Think high/scary pigmentation levels and a decent enough longevity. The $34 price point is a little steep - especially when you realise that the pan is NOT the same size as the shimmering skin perfector (think half) - but we have to acknowledge that the product quality is unique. Really. I cannot think of a single brand that are putting out a product as delicately beautiful as this. Couple this knowledge with the fact that Becca are cruelty free, a factor that since journeying down the documentary rabbit hole is vital for me to know up front, means that there is no way I wouldn't recommend this to friends/buy this for myself when I hit pan. In all seriousness go buy/try either Camellia or Copper Sparkle (as a minimum) and I can guarantee that your face will like it :)

Thanks for reading!

You can buy Becca via Cult Beauty and Sephora!


  1. What gorgeous products! I've gotta admit, I'm a massive fan of Camellia too - love the colour!


    1. It's so flattering. It can be worn lightly or built up for a mega intense Aunt Sally look .... which I honestly love haha :)

  2. OMGGG these are so pretty!

  4. How gorgeous! I think I'd get stuck on the same one - such a beautiful shade. x

    1. Even if I am wearing only a tiny bit of makeup it just works to pep up the face. It's a definite must have!

  5. I want all of them but Camellia is incredibly beautiful. Annoyingly shades like that are always too much for my horrifically pale skin so there's no way I could ever pull it off. I can still buy it and stare at its beauty in the pan though right?

    1. The pigmentation on these is frightening - it's one light dab and you already have a shot of blush so in some respects they are not the easiest to work with. The darker shades are particularly scary. Camellia though could be a good option because I think there is a slight lilac tone to it and i think that works on fair skins. Try it :)

  6. I may have bought Camellia and Snapdragon... I took my pictures for a future blog post today and I spent an awkwardly amount of time staring at them. They're just so pretty!!!

    1. I thought Snapdragon looked quite...for want of a better expression...tart on me but it may have been connected to my Period Face that I had last week. I'll give it another chance!

    2. I didn't try them yet to be honest because I had to take the pictures first #bbloggersrules lol
      I hope they'll look good but I think you're right, I need to remember to keep a light hand with these, they seems super pigmented! 😁

  7. These look so beautiful! I would love to try even one becca product, I haven't got round to it yet!

    1. Oh you have to start with a shimmering skin perfector - forget these until you have tried Pearl or Opal...or well any of them. Sensational!

  8. These are so pretty! I havent tried anything from Becca yet but I have a couple of things on my wishlist ready :) x

  9. These look amazing! I love coral toned blushes so Foxglove and Copper Sparkle have been added to the ever expanding wishlist. Just curious - what blush brush do you use to apply these? I'm finding it really tricky to find a blush brush that is the right size, density etc to avoid clown cheeks!

  19. Hello Camellia!! It looks rather intimidating in the pan but on the skin it looks so lovely. What sort of brush do you use to apply it with? I would be worried I would put too much on and look as if I'm permanently embarrassed! x
