Packaging.  I’m reviewing the well known flying saucer blushes today!  I honestly never thought of flying saucers until I heard someone on YouTube call them that.  I think the packaging is super flattering and classy.  They are honestly a great contrast to the classic square blush in the high end world of makeup. The black portion of the packaging isn’t quite like Nars and doesn’t collect finger prints…it’s a bit smoother and has less texture than Nars packaging.

Product. These are hands down my new favorite blushes. They are super smooth and pigmented. I hate the overused “creamy” word but they literally glide on with complete ease. They are VERY reminiscent of Tom Ford blush. And when I say very, I mean identical in feel and pigmentation. The main difference between Becca and Tom Ford is the obvious, price…and the other being color selection. They both offer very contrasting color selections.

With Becca you get .2oz for $32 and with Tom Ford you get .28oz at $57. I’ve never really been one to get down to brass and tacks over ounce per dollar ratio, I just know that Becca and Tom Ford without a doubt provide the best textured and pigmented blush one can buy. In my own opinion of course.

Comparisons. As you can see from the picture below both blush shades are pretty unique. This is of coarse if you are a collector. If you aren’t you probably think that statement is nuts. Sweet Pea is an interesting mix of warm cool. It’s darn near neutral but leans ever so slightly warm. Wild Honey is indeed a warm nude. At first glance one can see a hint of sparkle but no, there isn’t sparkle its the mineral that peeks through and no visible shimmer or sparkle appears. They give a healthy glow (satin) type texture to the skin which is uber friendly to aging, textured, porous or problematic skin.
