We’ve heard mixed reviews on the BECCA Cosmetics brand, which kind of surprises us. While the products are more on the expensive side, they’re certainly not as costly as some other high-end brands.
Our experience with BECCA has been nothing but love. We’re especially impressed with the wide range of foundation colors that have yellow undertones—which tend to be more flattering on all skin tones (in our opinion). The Luminous Skin Colour foundation is a cross between a tinted moisturizer and a sheer foundation with SPF 25—perfect for our skin in the drier winter months when moisture is scarce here in the desert. We also love the Creme Blush in Amaryllis (a favorite of beauty editors for years) which blends nicely and gives us natural, radiant color that lasts all day.
Recently we had an opportunity to sample the BECCA Mattifying Primer which really does help to keep shine at bay. We use this only where needed—in tour t-zone—to smooth out lines, fill in pores, and create a nice smooth canvas for our foundation. We like how it’s light and non-greasy and keeps us looking fresh—not shiny.
