My (mostly) moderate Becca haul from Fragrance Direct (picture heavy)

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 7 - 2014

I know that I’m not alone in announcing a mild disappointment with the post-Xmas beauty sales, I usually clean up and feel the inevitable spending guilts for weeks afterwards.  This year, not so much.  Infact, in my quest to add some new blood to my beauty cabinet, I’ve all but failed.

All but…

Thank God for Fragrance Direct and their bounty of Becca goodies that have seen me through this extremely dry patch.

There are still many Becca products available on the website, infact… most of the items that I purchased on Boxing Day are still available so I’ll just get some pictures up with their corresponding swatches in an effort to siren-song you into some lemmings.  Do we still use that word?  Oh, I’m so 2008.

The Becca stock on the Fragrance Direct website starts from around £2.99 and whilst I haven’t had long enough to provide defnitive reviews of everything, I’d really recommend picking up some of the Sheer Tint Lip Colours and a Luminous Skin Colour as a matter of urgency!

As far as freshness goes, considering that these will be old stock… I haven’t got any complaints.  Even the Eye Tint is showing no signs of oil/pigment separation and everything still smells fresh to me.

Are you going to be taking a look at what’s on offer?

    Love the look of the brush! How did you find it? Have you washed it yet, as I would like to know your opinions on shedding etc!

    I stocked up on Boxing day too, such bargains. Strange question but is the lid of your Luminous Skin Colour really sticky? I’ve had to chuck mine as it was so tacky, even after wiping :(
    Wishing I’d gotten a lip colour now too, that shade looks gorgeous.

    • The lid on mine is fine (both outer and inner) – how strange, was yours boxed?

      • Laura says:

        Yup just checked though and mines got slightly different packaging- it’s got a silvery pump instead of a clear one and mine did’t have an inner lid. Bit confusing looked online and some bottles say ‘ultra sheer foundation’ whilst others say ‘tinted moisturiser’ though seems to be same thing! Older stock possibly, still applies really well though.

    • Naomi says:

      Mine is covered in a horrible, sticky, tacky film that won’t seem to wash or wipe off too! It’s really bizarre.

      • Yikes, is yours different packaging to my one too? Have you tried NP remover or isopropyl alcohol? (admittedly possibly not the kind of stuff you have just lying around!)

  3. Miss Louise says:

    They were also on sale on Hautelook! I only picked up one thing but I wished I picked up more!!!
    Great haul :)

  4. Olivia says:

    You pretty much picked up everything I haven’t tried from them! Lol. They’re a great brand. I’ve reviewed their ever matte primer recently and I have a giveaway on my blog for their one perfecting brush!

  5. I didn’t realise they stocked Becca! I’ve been really disappointed in the sales, I know that high end make up hardly ever gets discounted but still there was just not much there

  6. Sarah says:

    My haul is also similar to yours. I got the foundation too, but mine has an opaque pump like the other commenters.

    My two Sheer Lip Tints were old – both had gone bad and I’ve had to throw them, stank of old wax crayons. The colours I got were Alina and Tatiana, just in case that info’s helpful to anyone else.

    Everything else seems OK though, freshness-wise. x

  7. Wordbird says:

    Eee-neigh-blur! 😀
    I’ve just been off and ordered a few things. Have never been able to afford Becca before (or get hold of it because I live in the sticks). How very exciting!

  8. Mango says:

    I just got my order today. Everything is fantastic apart from the sheer lip colours which definitely smell off :( – I got Olesya and Tatiana. I really should throw them away but they’re so pretty :(.
