Review Overview

This lightweight liquid foundation provides medium coverage and has an attractive semi-matte finish. The velvety texture has good slip, but it sets quickly, which can lead to uneven application. When applied correctly, this fragrance-free foundation blends seamlessly into the skin without accentuating enlarged pores. It also doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles, which often is a concern for foundations with this type of finish. We found the semi-matte finish too drying for dry skin, but it works beautifully on normal to oily skin types.

The shade range is impressive and there are multiple options for very light to very dark skin tones. To BECCA's credit, there's not a bad shade in the bunch! The wide variety makes it easier than usual to find an exact match for your skin tone, especially for those with deeper skin tones.

Pros:
  • Options for all skin tones.
  • Lightweight.
  • Doesn't settle into facial lines or accentuate enlarged pores.
  • Fragrance-free.
Cons:
  • None.

Brand Overview

Becca At-A-Glance

Australian import Becca is a complete line of color cosmetics from makeup artist Rebecca Morrice Williams. As the story goes, Rebecca, like so many women, was having difficulty finding the perfect foundation. It seems her professional experience making up women of varying skin tones and preferences shared one truth: all women wanted perfect skin. This set Williams on her path to creating what would become the Becca line.

While there are a number of excellent foundations here, what seems to have catapulted the brand onto the map is their numerous highlighter products. From liquids to powders, there are an incredible range of options in their luminizer categories, and many are superb.

Surveying the rest of this line revealed that Williams just didn't do her homework for foundation shades. The eyeshadows are amazingly silky, and many of their products for lips and cheeks are exemplary. Lastly, almost all of the makeup brushes from Becca are aces, and the options plentiful, especially for eye designs.

Strengths: Excellent concealers, foundations, highlighters and eyeshadows; good lip gloss; several outstanding brushes.

Weaknesses: Beats us, this is a strong collection of products.

Becca is available at Sephora, Ulta and via their Web site.
