Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation- Photos & Review :)

Hey Everyone! Thank you for tuning in as always! 🙂
Today’s post features a NEW foundation line from Becca Cosmetics!
IMG_3179Introducing the Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation from BECCA!
These foundations will be available for purchase online via the Becca Cosmetics site and at Sephora  — launch date is 1/12/2016.
There are only 8 shades of foundation and sizing is 1 fl oz. IMG_3173IMG_2974

Let’s begin by first addressing the packaging– Becca simply never fails. I love the frosted glass, it screams luxury in my opinion… love, LOVE. If you own Becca’s Backlight Priming Filter, the packaging is quite similar except there is a pump on that primer and here, we have a dropper and it’s easy to use. Just SHAKE the bottle, TWIST the cap, it will POP, and DROP the foundation onto the back of your hand, onto the brush, onto a mixing palette, beauty blender, etc. Do what works for you. Remember, SHAKE, TWIST, POP & DROP!

As for the formula, it’s definitely very light weight. When you apply the foundation to your skin, it really evens out your skin color. Not only does it feel like skin, it looks like skin too. For me, it removes any redness and gives me even coverage. I think this foundation is build-able.. it’s definitely light coverage, maybe medium coverage, but definitely not full coverage.. which is totally ok! I personally don’t need full coverage for school, the beach, to go shopping or to run errands. This will be a go to!

As for the shade range, there are only 8 shades and I happen to be in the shade FAIR. That is the lightest foundation shade in this line. I really do like the coverage and the finish for this foundation, but I feel as though the color selection may not work for everyone. However, if you’re eyeing this foundation, I hope that you will go to Sephora, get color matched and take home a sample. Try it out for a few days & if you like it, purchase it!

Becca Cosmetics also suggest that you not only apply the foundation to the back of your hand, but to your face, blend it out & then make your decision. When I first took swatches, I thought that FAIR would have been too light, but LIGHT would have been too dark. But when I applied FAIR to my skin, it blended into my skin perfectly when it oxidized. I think it may have the technology to adjust to your skin tone, so give it a try!

EDIT: Overall, I’ve been using this foundation for over a week, the shade FAIR works for me best, but if I want to look a little darker, I mix equal parts of FAIR & LIGHT. I love the finish of the foundation and some of you have asked about my skin. I do have normal to dry skin, so I love a foundation that is luminous and gives my skin a dewy finish. For those of you who have oily skin, you can use a mattifying primer. A really great primer to use with this foundation if you have oily skin is actually also from Becca Cosmetics called the Ever-Matte Poreless Primer. This primer literally sucks up any oils on your face and will give you a matte finish for about 10-12 hours. If nothing has worked for you, give it a try! I hope this info helps some of you out.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. As always, thank you so much for tuning in and reading– love you all. xoxoxo

      sometimes i do, and sometimes i don’t 🙂 if i want it to wear for about 8 or more hours outdoors, i’ll use translucent powder and set my forehead and chin area. if i’m indoors, the foundation stays intact!

    Granted due to undertone ‘Dark Golden’ is a better fit for me than ‘Warm Honey’ there also needs to be something darker than the darkest shade Deep Bronze too.
    In MAC I’m NW43 w/ a little NC45 or in most Becca products i’m Tobacco (w/ a hint of Amber) etc so i’m of a deeper complexion but in the spectrum of “brown people” we go WAY darker than even Deep Bronze covers.
    Hopefully they come out with at least 2 more shades….something lighter than fair and something darker than Deep Bronze.
