If you own Nars Exhibit A this is the creme blush version of that. except not as bright in my opinion. This is one of my favorite colors of the line and it is sadly discontinued but they do have it on ebay for a fair price so I'm jumping on that as soon as mine runs out.
the packaging is a rubber tube with a plastic cap and i love it for this! it's great because it really helps dispensing the perfect amount of product depending on how hard you squeeze (ive had other bottle like this dispense on their own and make a mess, this product doesnt have this issue)
If you get leakage (which i didnt for this color - like clear liquid separating from the color and coming out instead of the color) ( the trick is to run it under hot water then knead the tube -with the cap closed). This color will show up on EVERYONE lol
the smell is not like chemical gross fake candy strawberry like i was expecting. its very faint, and it smells like a clean and natural. I really liked that. The smell goes away after applying.
Uses/wear: i use this on my lips and cheeks. Girls might find it drying on the lips but I don't think it's awful, it kind of feels like youre wearing a very light dab of semi-matte lipstick . This color lasts all day on my dry skin and in humid weather. I've never actually worn it to the beach though :3 lol
Becca Beach Tints are a multi-use cream stain product that can be used on the cheeks and lips. They claim to be water-resistant and kiss-proof and they smell just like their names.
Because I live in a very hot climate, these are a holy grail product for me. They stay on all day, come in a beautiful range of colors, can be used as blush and lip color, and I don't need a brush to apply. Unlike many cream and liquid blushes, these aren't greasy or oily at all. They dry down and set pretty quickly and I can't feel them on my skin.
Strawberry is a subtle warm orangey red.. I have uploaded swatches of the 8 shades I own (they are also posted under other Beach Tint reviews as well).
Strawberry is a warm, slightly orange-based red that I think would look beautiful on a huge range of skintones. It's similar in color to NARS Exhibit A blush, but Strawberry has less orange and is much easier to apply. If you're not familiar with the Beach Tint formula, it's a silicone-based cream that gives you plenty of time to blend and dries down looking completely natural. I have NC30 skin and Strawberry gives me the kind of flush that taking a jog or sitting in a sauna would. I use a rice grain sized dot on each cheek, and blend it in with a duo fibre brush. If you're fairer than I am, you could even use half that amount for a noticeable flush. Fingers work fine with the Beach Tint formula, but I find that using a brush blends the color faster and more seamlessly. On the lips, Strawberry gives a summery warm red tint that would be ideal for those just venturing into wearing red lipsticks and want to start with something sheer. I've never had problems with Strawberry separating in the tube, which does happen with some of the other Beach Tint shades. Despite the tube being so small, Strawberry will last you a long time because you don't need much product and it lasts all day without powdering on top. This shade would complement skintones ranging from the very fair to the very deep.
