This blush is beautiful! I have light tan skin and its perfect! It was actually my first becca product, so my love with this line has just began. The color, texture and saying power of this blush is divine. I want every shade!
Ps. I have dry skin so usually I like stains and cream blushes but this sinks into the skin so wonderfully!

I think its a geourges highligther if you are looking for a touch of pink color. And the only reason that I woun't buy it again is because I want a "white" highlitgter next time. But it's a really good highlighter though. :)

I am big fan of Becca pressed shimmer powder and loose shimmer powder.so far my fav is the nymph.
I had to try the Gypsy since I am really in love the Nymph.so I just wanted to see what's like ?
I am cool toned with pale skin & Asian. I was looking for something pale pink shimmer powder which don't have any glitter or something not too much shimmer to apply on a blush.
I did try Dior's rose amber. it's beautiful and cool tone shimmer pink.
however, somehow I feel not right with the color to my skin.
it's bit too light like I can tell it's there.
so I decided to Becca's gipsy. now I am in love the Gypsy !!
it's not too much and more calm dawn than the Dior Rose Amber.
( since I am in the 40', I don't want to be wanna be young look)
my ceek more pop up when I apply it on the blush.
also I apply much more in the night time.<- all depends on the light condition. if you go to darker place, it's might be not much shown.
in the case Nymph or KO's candlelight is beautiful.
I would not much recommend to people if have strong yellow tone.
it's can be make skin dull ( if your skin tone is very yellow tone)
I would recommend to any body who have cool tone for apply it on the your own pink tone blush. it's makes your skin beautiful.

This is what a highlighter should be - a very fine pressed powder with subtle shimmer that will make your skin look glowy and smooth. The colour is a pinky mauvy slightly magentarish. I don't mind the packaging at all, it is a little heavy but I don't think it looks bad. I also bought Nymph, which I also love, going to buy angel as well.

Rop for pics. I'd like to say 1st off that for those of you having trouble locating this product (I did too - had to call several stores) it is, actually and truly, worth it. I live in a metro area (Washington DC, US) and have several retailers at my dispense that carry Becca. None had Gypsy PSP. No one had the LSP either, and swaps were ridiculous, YKWIM? I finally located one through the Becca web site list of retailers, and can say that this is a very unique and wearable plum blush. It's more purple IRL than it looked in all of the pictures I saw and my stomach kinda flip flopped when I first opened it, but I'm quite pale (NW 15-20) and can actually pull it off so I think if I can almost anyone could. As for the glitter question, well, it is a shimmer powder so it's got, ya know, shimmer. But it's natural looking shimmer, so don't be too scared but don't expect a matte blush either. It has a light scent, similar to Becca soft touch blushes, which fades quickly. Final word of advice: if you're on the fence and get the chance to buy, do it! This is one item that will swap in, like, 2 seconds.

There is really nothing I can add to what glossedup review stated except-buy it! I was so sick and tired of hearing all the hype on the board about this magical product that when I found it on eBay for way less than retail I pounced on it.
Well, it arrived and all I can say is now I see what all the fuss is about. It is insanely pretty on-makes you look like you are kind of flushed and glowy from within.

Public Service Announcement : Gypsy is kind of the best thing, ever. In my opinion Becca's Pressed Shimmer Powders are the stars of the entire line, and all impart a fantastic, diffused glowiness that is never OTT or obvious. In my experience, they have photographed fantastically on me - even with flash, they look like glow and not oil patches!
So the formula's fantastic. The colour is also hard to beat - what looks like an odd, cool-toned bright magenta goes on a sweet pink. Colour is buildable, as shown in swatches below - anything from a pinky-gold tint to a full-on in-your-face flush. I think it's kind of magic because on the boards, both warm and cool-toned girls go absolutely nuts for it. Seriously. Watch us :D It looks totally natural on me if I apply lightly - it *actually* looks like I'm glowing-blushing in selectively flattering areas (instead of my usual giant red flush-face.)
Price-wise it is not fantastic. You do get what you pay for, though. 10g of product, 0.33oz, and I use so little (stippling brush, one touch per cheek every use) that it works out so well. It's paraben free, too, and Becca is a cruelty-free company if I recall correctly. At $34USD/$56AUD retail, it's pricey, but in my opinion definitely worth it. You can get it 10% off online at particular sites all the time, so that makes it a bit better.
Just - get it, okay? It's that good. I can't believe I'm only reviewing it NOW. Definite rebuy.
The packaging is terrible, though - hard to stack, and the mirror part doesn't 'stand' on it's own. The rubberiness catches dust and shimmer, and is pretty hard to clean. I put up with this, because it's crazy amazing.

I was looking for a pink highlighter that would show up on my GGG/DDD skin, and Gypsy sounded like it would be just what I was looking for. The pink is very subtle on my medium-dark coloring, but the sheen gives me a bright, beautiful glow, without being frosty or glittery. This is gorgeous over other blushes. I ordered this about a week before purchasing MAC Light Flush MSF, but had I seen Light Flush before Gypsy, I probably wouldn't have purchased this particular color because I prefer Light Flush more. Still, I like Gypsy enought to keep it. It gives me a cool-toned glow whereas Light Flush is more of warm bronzey glow.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Other Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
Gypsy works best as a blush or blush topper for me because I'm so fair. I completely adore this shade - it's basically the equivilent of Wild Orchid creme blush only with ultra fine gold shimmer. I can wear it alone, but for some radiance, I use it along with Wild Orchid. I'll catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror sometimes during the day and be surprised at how glowy my complexion appears. This is a must-have for fair cool toned girls!

I absolutely love this blush/highlighter! I been looking for a subtle plum blush that wouldn't make me look bruised. I bought this during the BECCA sale at Sephora for 75% off and will reorder if needed at full price in a heartbeat! Its a plum blush with a subtle hint of gold sheen that makes you GLOW! better than the overrated NARS Orgasm blush. Packaging is quite heavy but its truly unique.

This is a very sheer, but very beautiful, highlighter. I had hoped I could wear it by itself as a blush, but it's a touch too light for that - at least for my preference. However, the gold shimmer in the powder looks amazing on your cheeks, so I like to layer it over another light blush.
I got this during the Sephora Becca frenzy, so I only paid about $8 for it. While I think it's a gorgeous color and a beautiful highlighter, I don't know if I'd buy it again at the full price. So I'll ration what I have. I do have a huge rave for the indestructible packaging - I've dropped this several times, and it's never broken because the packaging is like Fort Knox!

I love the color! It is perfect for a young fresh glowing radiant youthful look. The gold pigment is wonderful It makes your cheeks glow, I felt like Cleopatra the Egyptian Beauty! It is perfect for those with light yellow toned skin. When ever I wore it people would comment that I looked like a doll XD. It is well worth the price I bought it 2 years ago and I still have plenty left even though I use it regularly.
Also I found it to be very pretty used as eyeshadow :) so it has double usage.
Be gentle though it is very fragile and cracks easily inside the compact.

This is my favorite out of the bunch I got. On me it imparts a really pretty sheer pink warm glow. The powder is super soft and sheer. I think this beats MAC's MSF- I find that MAC's sometimes is too glittery while Becca's a really fine shimmer that just makes my skin glow. I like to use this either on top of blush or instead of blush. ( I'm a MAC NC37-C30 for reference )

Almost all the shimmery products I've tried just end up making my pores look huge (some Nars) or showing up glittery (BB shimmerbricks/MAC pp msf) on my cheeks, not quite the look I fancy, really. I want my shimmer blushes to show up as a polished sheen on my skin, illuminate and reflect the light so I actually look glowy rather than glittery. Too much to ask? Not of the Becca pressed shimmer powders!
The texture of these are smooth and finely milled, although somehow that translates into a rather fragile compact. I got mine shipped internationally to me safely with no casualty though (thanks to bf!) but I can tell they are fragile cos' I opened 1 with too much force and that caused the powder inside to chip a little. Otherwise, I do love the compact handy packaging, complete with (very!) firm snap closure and that lovely large mirror.
Apply with a brush, NOT that little thin pat of a puff they give you for best effects, please.
About the colour now - I don't wear bright colours at all and pink doesn't usually wear well on my warm skin so Gypsy, looking like a rather bright grape-berry pink in pan looked a little scary to conservative me.
But what do I know?! On my cheeks, this is the first cool berry pink that doesn't make me look like I got punched. It's a beautiful true golden pink on my skin, with the gold shimmer warming the blush up for my warm Asian MMM, GA LSF 5.5/RMK 103 (NC30-35?) skintone.
The shimmers are totally not chunky at all, instead they seem to meld into my skin to give off a polished sheen against the light and seemed to reflect light *off* my pores and NOT enlarge them. A dimensional cheek look. Gives me a sweet pretty look that's polished!
In my hunt for a pink blush that would actually look pinky on me (and not bruised/red), Gypsy is the only one that has worked for me, as deceivingly berry as it looks in pan. It's not too bright but bright enough to tell I'm wearing a blush and it's a glowy pretty golden pink that is natural enough on my skintone. Finally! My pink blush! Be sure not to pile it on though as then it would show up powdery on your cheeks upclose. This is pigmented enough with just a swipe or two.

This may be the one product that makes me put every blush & MSF I have to the side. It's pigmented enough to use alone, without having to use blush first. It gives a very natural rosy glow with a very, very light dusting of gold. I am being extra careful with it due to the previous reviews about these being so fragile, and I haven't noticed any scent as some of the previous reviewers have. Gypsy looks rather boring when just looking at it in the compact, but it's so pretty on. I recommend a 187 brush to apply it with, it's the only one I've used with it so far. The only downside to this powder is the price, but a little goes a long way so this compact should last a long time - which makes it worth the high price to me. Next on my list is Princess! :)

Excellent as blush! Perfect mix of color pigments, does not finish too orangey, too gold, or too frosty. Expensive but very very worth it.

Just got this and absolutely love it. I am NW20 and have a naturally pink-beige complexion (from past use of Retin-A when I was younger) which makes it hard for me to wear blush. I initially thought Nefertiti would better suit me but it (and the popular Hyawatha) barely showed on my skin and actually made me look white/silver. Instead, the Sephora MU assistant suggested Gypsy, which is a beautiful pink/gold blusher. It gives me a natural glow on my cheeks that is not overbearing on my already naturally flushed skin and looks very natural. Just what I wanted. It does look really pink in the pan which scared me but when applied doesn't make me look like a clown. A really beautiful product.

I have almost all of the Becca pressed shimmer powders and I just love this product. It is really excellent. The shimmer isnt glittery or chunky, but really natural. These retail for $33 each but there is alot of powder. Comes packaged in a brown compact with silver top. Gypsy is a darker rosey lilac with pink shimmer. This makes great blushes or set over a cream blush. The shimmers are so natural and not glittery at all. They do have the Becca scent though, but it fades quickly and I dont notice it. Top quality shimmer powders and some of the best on the market. They are much more finely milled than the BB shimmerbricks or MAC skinfinishes/iridescent powders. A+++++!

I was very disappointed that this product shattered from regularing handling. It is not as if I dropped it or anything. Gypsy was so sheer and matte. It was almost no color although it looked bright in the pan. I think Becca products were overhyped due to their rarity but now that they are available at Nordstroms and Sephora, people aren't as interested because their color products are subpar. Becca foundations and concealors are wonderful though.
