Singer Selena Gomez (L) and actress Francia Raisa attend the Billboard Women In Music 2017 at the Ray Dolby Ballroom, on November 30, 2017, in Hollywood, California.
Francia Raísa has revealed her must-haves, and two fan-favorite products from Rare Beauty, a cosmetics brand owned by her longtime friend Selena Gomez, made the list.
In an interview with Page Six Style published Tuesday, Raísa, who recently ventured into the culinary world with a line of exclusive La Victoria salsas, shared the products she swears by, from beauty essentials to her very own salsas.
Among them was the Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, a standout product available in 13 shades and both matte and dewy finishes.
“Selena did a great job,” Raísa said of the blush. “A little really goes a long way.”
Described on Sephora’s website as weightless and long-lasting, the liquid blush is praised for being easy to blend seamlessly and be built up for a gentle, radiant flush.
Since hitting the market, the product has garnered significant attention among makeup enthusiasts and earned favorable reviews from beauty content creators.
YouTuber Chloe Wen posted an extensive review of every shade in the liquid blush collection, expressing sheer adoration for the product.
“I have literally no words for how in love with this blush collection I am,” Wen raved. “The thing is: typically, when brands send these types of like PR packages, there are always shades that I’m like, ‘[I’m] probably not gonna wear that’ [or] ‘[I] wouldn’t gravitate towards that,’ but seeing [Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush] — even the brightest shades kind of blended out with that foundation. They’re stunning.”
Meanwhile, Raísa also included Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil in her must-haves list, as she recommended it as a perfect complement to the blush.
“I take pride in my lips always looking nice and moisturized, so the Lip Oil is a good combo of color and moisture,” she told Page Six Style.
According to the product description, the lip oil features an inventive gel-to-oil formula that initially offers a glossy sheen and eventually tints the lips while ensuring day-long comfort, remaining non-sticky throughout.
Similar to the liquid blush, the lip product is also beloved by makeup enthusiasts, receiving praise from beauty influencers for its range of wearable shades.
Other products that made the “Bring It On: All or Nothing” actress’ list were the Live Tinted Huegaurd 3-in-1 Sunscreen Primer, La Victoria Fire Roasted Salsa and Fire Roasted Salsa Verde, Apple EarPods headphones with lightning connector, Lucas’ Papaw Ointment, and panty liners.
Raísa and Gomez share a long-standing friendship, having remained close after the former’s kidney donation to the singer in 2017.
However, in 2022, speculations arose among fans about potential tensions between the two after the Rare Beauty founder called Taylor Swift her “only friend in the industry” in an interview with Rolling Stone.
Raísa reportedly commented, “Interesting,” on a post that quoted Gomez but later deleted it, sparking further speculation.
In August, the “How I Met Your Father” star addressed the rumors in an interview on the “Good Guys” podcast, making it clear that there’s no feud between her and the “Lose You To Love Me” singer.
