Review & Swatches: Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss in “Flamingo Crush”

Becca Ultimate Colour Gloss in Flamingo Crush

Availability: Sephora
Price: $24.00

Company’s Description

Lush and luxurious, this silky formula glazes lips in a long-wearing layer of bold color and brilliant shine yet feels completely weightless and never sticky. Formulated with antioxidant vitamin E and emollient oils, it nourishes, hydrates, and comforts the lips.

Becca’s newest lip product is its Ultimate Colour Gloss, which is said to be long-wearing, bold in color and shine, and weightless. This new lipgloss comes in nine (9) shades. This review is for the shade Pink Lotus–a vibrant, ruby-based pink.

Packaging: 9/10

This lipgloss comes in a clear, plastic tube and includes a doe-foot applicator.

Quality: 9.8/10

Just like with Pink Lotus, Flamingo Crush proves to be a fantastic color. It’s a medium pink color with ruby tones to it. The color is bright, strong, and vibrant, but the finish has a little translucence to it, so you are still able to see your underlying lip color and texture.

This gloss leaves a shiny finish. With a single layer, you can see both the color and texture of your lips underneath and with two (2) layers, you get a denser finish of color that still allows the texture of your lips to show.

I am a big fan of this gloss’ formula. It has zero stickiness to it and, as the company claims, is light-weight. The gloss is also moisturizing. The gloss itself lasts for about two and a half (2.5) hours before needing re-application. But what’s great about this color is that it leaves a medium-level stain behind for another couple of hours after the gloss comes off. So you get the benefit of color on your lips even after the gloss itself is gone.

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

This lipgloss glides across the lips easily. The balance of good pigmentation and translucent finish also allows for simple application.

Price: 9/10

For $24.00 you get 0.2 ounces. This is a typical price and amount of product for Becca-equivalent brands.

    Since I LOOOOOVE bold pink lips, I think I “need” Flamingo Crush!
    I wish it had some shimmer, though, and mention of a bad smell/taste makes me hesitate a bit.The color will carry the day, however – probably! 🙂

    Hey Allura,
    I just wanted to say that your blog was so helpful when it came to looking up swatches for my Sephora sale order. I mean, I always look at your blog (along with Google search because I’m a deeper skintone than you) but for some of the items I ordered you were the only place that I could find any sort of actual arm/face/lip swatches! So thank you for having such varied posts, I guess? Lol, that sounds a bit weird tbeh xD

    Anyhow, I was wondering if you noticed any particular smell with these BECCA glosses? Just because I got this one and while everything else is perfect, it smells HORRIBLE. It seems like BECCA isn’t in Sephora stores again yet so I have no way of telling if I just got a bad one |:
