Becca Cosmetics | Stick Foundation x Compact Concealer x Lip Tint | Review

BECCA Cosmetics is an Australian beauty line founded by make-up artist Rebecca Morrice Williams. The philosophy behind BECCA is about creating a natural flawless look for all women regardless of age or ethnicity. BECCA features a very wide range of shades with 34 concealer colors and 30 foundation colors.

I recently tried out BECCA's Stick Foundation, Compact Concealer & Lip Tints.

Compact Concealer in Almond

BECCA’s Compact Concealer cleverly contains two highly pigmented formulations within one slim compact – Extra-cover and Medium-cover. Enabling layering and mixing, this ingenious product provides total camouflage for almost any skin problem including blemishes, scars, birthmarks and under eye circles.

-The medium-cover version is sheer and creamy- perfect for dark shadows in the under-eye area

-The extra-cover version provides exceptional camouflage and adheres well to the skin

Stick Foundation in Truffle

The ultimate skin savior, creating the illusion of flawless skin by evening out skin tone and lightly concealing blemishes. A unique balance between maximum sun protection (SPF 30+) and long lasting wear.

-The soft, creamy texture allows a totally controllable level of coverage

-The non-powdery formulation is suitable for most skin types (including ultra-sensitive) and provides sheer to medium, natural looking coverage

-Doubles as a sheer under-eye concealer

Glossy Lip Tint ( L-R ) in Amaretto & Marsala

A long lasting translucent gloss that delivers radiant shine with a splash of colour. Deliciously scented with a hint of strawberry parfait, this luxurious formulation is silky-smooth and completely non-sticky.

-Conditions lips with long-lasting shine

-The most comfortable gloss you will ever wear

-Easy to use wand style applicator

Glow: The Stick Foundation truly lived up to its claims. Its by far one of the most natural looking foundations that I've tried. I also really loved the fact that it felt virtually weightless, it was really light and maintained throughout the entire day. I honestly felt like I wasn't wearing makeup, it wasn't heavy at all! The Lip Tint was another favorite as well, it wasn't sticky or waxy feeling and  it lasted a pretty good time, I only had to reapply it once.

Glare: I'd say so far the only downside I've noticed is that the Foundation colors in comparison to the swatches on BECCA's website aren't really the closest depiction of the actual hues. If you notice my foundation stick above in Truffle looks a little orange which is due to the flash because its much darker in person.  Before purchasing I'd definitely contact one of BECCA's reps to assist you with picking your perfect shade.

Would I Recommend It? Absolutely!

Overall Glam: I'm very pleased with my overall BECCA experience, the products are very high in quality and most importantly they actually do what they claim. Not to mention with over 30 foundation colors you're guaranteed to find a shade that's going to keep your complexion flawless!

  1. Great post! Can this be found online, or in stores? What's the price point?

  2. Will you be reviewing their eyeshadow? I love that you featured a brand besides MAC. People always think they are the only brown girl friendly brand! I'm checking on Becca's site today to purchase me some.

  3. Great Post! Love the sexy packaging! Definitely going to check them out soon.

  4. I've heard great things about their foundation & concealers.. but I'm always concerned with choosing colours online - do they sell these particular products in stores anywhere?

  5. Hey ladies, my apologies for forgetting to include the price range and where you can buy BECCA.

    @Nepenthe Yes, they do sell BECCA in various stores. You can find out which locations are in your area here http://www.beccacosmetics.com/i28//information.html
