BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé in Watermelon/Moonstone

After picking up my first BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflé (in Lychee/Opal), I decided that one wasn't enough and promptly ordered a second shade. I went for Watermelon/Moonstone this time around. I really also like the look of Fig/Opal, so don't be surprised if that pops up on here soon. 

Watermelon/Moonstone looks like a very intense shade in the pan, but once blended out, it is a highly wearable shade. I think it the perfect color to wear if you want a glowy, sun-kissed look. On the cheek, Watermelon/Moonstone is a beautiful warm, mid-tone raspberry shade. It seems to be a bit more buildable than Lychee/Opal, but it seems difficult to over-do, even though it looks so bold at first glance.

The Soufflés are much softer than I would have imagined (before swatching them, I assumed they would be harder and dryer). So far I have just used my fingers to apply them, and I've been happy with the results. But I am going to try using a stippling brush next time just to see what happens!

Like I mentioned in my review of Lychee/Opal here, Watermelon/Moonstone doesn't seem to emphasize my pores and it actually has pretty good lasting power. Not quite as long lasting as the original Beach Tints, but it stood up to even the combination of heat and my oily skin for a good 8 hours. I did have a dry patch on my cheek from where I had used a spot treatment, and the Soufflé did cling to that a bit. So, if you have dry skin you might want to test run these first and make sure to get in a good exfoliation before wearing.

L to R: Lychee/Opal, Watermelon/Moonstone
As you can see, Watermelon/Moonstone is both a bit deeper and warmer than Lychee/Opal. Both look quite shimmery in swatches, but blend out nicely.

Have you tried the BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Soufflés yet? Which shades have you picked up?
