BECCAlight Shifter Dewing Tint & Finishing Veil, Review
for the love of glow
I am all about that “dewy skin” life, which is why I am so excited about today’s post – we will be chatting about the newest BECCAlight Shifter collection.
Curious? Then please keep on scrolling
My Skin: dry, sensitive (tone - light-neutral)
BECCAlight Shifter Dewing Tint (30 USD; Made in Italy) – is described as a “tinted moisturizer” with a sheer, dewy and luminous finish.
Packaging: housed in a portable squeeze tube, this tint has a modern and user-friendly packaging with a see-through brand logo that allows you to peek at an actual liquid inside the tube. You get 1.0 fl.oz/ 30 ml of product here, which is a pretty standard amount.
Formula: Dewing Tint can be described as a skincare/makeup hybrid as it has a water-based, antioxidant-rich formula infused with Glycerin, Squalane, Vitamin E, Crystalized Licorice, Shea Butter and Camellia Leaf Extract (aka Green Tea). Having so many nourishing ingredients in it, this product feels hydrating and weightless on the skin. It should also protect you from environmental stressors, pollution and blue light (yes please!).

Texture: Dewing Tint has a beautiful balmy gel texture to it. Although initially tinted, once you blend it in, you are left with a pearlized glow (glitter-, shimmer-free) and hardly noticeable color that sheers out to the max.

Coverage, Shades: firstly, the term “tinted moisturizer” is used a touch loosely here. Because of the product’s extremely sheer nature you might not get a lot of coverage (if any). However, having 8 shades (all the way from fair to deep) allows you to find a match that suits your complexion and undertone best. Often times luminous products like this can translate either too ashy or warm depending on your skin tone, so it is amazing that Becca Cosmetics (being an inclusive brand) have thought about giving us a variety of flexible shades to choose from.
Application: this product is best applied with fingers, which should also be the quickest/easiest way to use it. Since Dewing Tint is quite glowy, I would not recommend overindulging in it (no matter how tempting it might be), because in my opinion it looks best when you use less of it. If you keep on adding more, you will not build up coverage, but might end up looking a touch too luminous (borderline greasy, especially if you have combination/oily skin type).
I believe that there are four key ways in which you can use this luminous gem:
1. Mixed in with foundation to alter the finish of it and make it dewier;
2. Paired with a concealer for glowy, “no makeup” complexion;
3. On high points of the face to catch the light;
4. As an illuminating primer underneath a light-medium coverage foundation.
