Another Flavor of Vamp: Becca Berry Twist

Another lemming to lay at Xiao's feet.

This is Becca Cosmetics Berry Twist; it's part of their new Ultimate Color Gloss line. It comes in a tube, has a doe-foot applicator, and a faint crème brûlée scent that goes away after application. Not bothersome to me. The gloss itself is kind of sticky and the tube seems to be constructed such that you can't get a ton of gloss out at once, which is both good and bad. You need quite a few passes to reach a saturated color - the doe foot can kind of just push the gloss around, but that just comes with the pigmented-gloss territory, I think.

The formula is nice, though - not drying, not too tacky, and quite long-lasting. I was impressed. Also, the color in the tube is what you get on lips, though it can be sheered out if you desire. Obviously, I don't. Haha.

Lip swatch:
The color really is gorgeous. Dark, vampy plum with high shine. Get yourself a tube.
