Best Of Becca Blushed Radiance

I'm back!!! I think I officially win the award for most sporadic blogger of the year, actually make that century!
Basically life got really busy and blogging took a backseat. I went on holiday at the end of March and when I got back I was offered a new job and I've been busy with that ever since also I've been feeling un-inspired, there are so many blogs out there that it's hard to write without sounding like a million others.
On a side note and I think I've said it before, you can't have a full time job and a full time blog it's just impossible!
So I'm back and back with a good one because I have some Becca goodness to talk about.

Today we are talking about the Becca Blushed Radiance Kit which includes a selection of radiance boosting minis which are perfect for travel.
Speaking of travel I picked this up with the sole purpose of bringing it on holiday with me because it includes small sizes of two of my favourite products, the Backlight Priming Filter and Opal Highlighter.

The products are tiny, smaller than I thought they would be but if you've ever used a Becca product you'll know that a little goes a long way so they should last a while, especially the powder products.
Lets get onto the individual products.

Backlight Priming Filter 
More than just a primer, it's the secret behind the iconic BECCA glow. Infused with three unique filtering luminescent pearl, this lightweight fluid crates a smooth canvas and acts as an instant filter. Blurs imperfections and gives skin a healthy, luminescent glow.

I already have the full size and love it! It gives the skin a healthy radiant glow without looking overly shimmery or shiny. One of the best primers money can buy and especially good for dry, dull skin types.

Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight - Moonstone

A sheer liquid highlighter that veils skin in a soft pearlized glow. Apply to targeted areas including cheek bones, brow bones and bridge of nose.

I've never been a fan of liquid highlighters and this is not exception. Don't get me wrong, if you like a subtle sheen to the skin than this is great but I like an intense shimmer and liquid or cream products are just too light for me.
I'll probably end up using this mixed into my foundation to add radiance.

Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed - Opal
A creamy luminous powder that veils skin in a soft pearlized glow with a lustrous velvet finish. Sweep across face or apply to targeted areas including cheekbones, brow bones and bridge of nose. 

If there's one thing you should get from the Becca Range it's her powder highlighters, they are a cult product for a reason! Opal gives an intense shimmer to the cheekbones and the texture is super creamy and easy to blend.
I have a full size of Opal so this baby one will be kept exclusively for travel.

Mineral Blush - Flowerchild
A delicate powder blush. Create perfect cheeks with this effortlessly buildable formula that features micro-fine minerals and antioxidant vitamins to achieve a naturally flushed look for all skin types, even the most sensitive.

I've never tried a Becca blush before now but I have to say I'm really impressed! The pigmentation really surprised me because I expected it to be really sheer and it wasn't, I tiny little dab was all I needed and the lasting power was great too.
Flowerchild would suit most skintones as the peachy pink hue is pretty neutral but on darker skin tones it might look a tad bit ashy.

Best Of Becca Blushed Radiance retail for £28 and can be found on Cult Beauty.
