I love Becca products, so I did not hesitate in purchasing this foundation. It gives moderate to full coverage, buildable, and fragrance-free. I only need minimal coverage, and it appeared cakey after one application. It has matte coverage, which I like, but it appeared heavy on my skin. The following day, I had a few break-outs on my forehead and chin. I would recommend this product for someone looking for moderate coverage, but it just didn't work for me. I gave it to a friend of mine, and she loves it. I'm glad it didn't go to waste!
One of my top 3 foundations (and I've tried MANY)
I was surprised to see that this product had relatively low-scoring reviews, until I read through them. It's clear to me that many of the reviewers here are not people who use foundation or put much thought into it. Bottom line: this is a very nice, light-to-medium coverage formula. The texture is creamy, which results in a product that's forgiving to skin texture issues such as large pores or flaky areas--it does NOT mean it feels heavy or looks cakey on the face. It has a satin, skin-like finish. If you're combination or oily, you will want to set it with powder. It will not cover spots or rosacea on its own, but that's why God invented concealers.
Becca also makes one of the best shade ranges I've found, because they pay attention to undertones. Pale girls like me who find that the lightest shades in a range are too pink will be happy with Becca's paler shades (I wear Shell, as a fair, warm, olive complexion). They also produce a variety of undertones for darker skins, something that's patgetically overlooked in many brands.
I've owned dozens of mid to high-end foundations in the past twenty years, and this is one of my top. I find myself reaching for this most days over my luxury-brand base products and plan on repurchasing indefinitely.
Great product. Long lasting and well-performing
I loved the sample so I bought the product! I had never been able to find the right foundation until I sampled this one. I absolutely love that the sample comes with multiple tones. I've had issues with my skin with acne and oil but this product does not make me break out and keeps my face relatively oil free. My skin looks perfect with this and I often use it alone over moisturizer.
My skin looked airbrushed after using my sample! I loved this product and will be buying full size. The lighter shades were great for contouring as well.
Radiant, and matte
This is the only foundation I have ever found that is both radiant and matte. I applied it with a buffing brush and I felt like my skin had a glow, yet my face stayed completely matte all day, which was amazing. I usually have oily skin and I ALWAYS have to touch up with powder but I wore this foundation on a fall day and it needed no touch ups at all.
It is really hard to find a foundation that will my match my pecan brown skin. This one was right on. It felt good going on and it did not make my skin oily. Enjoyed it.
I have combination skin and this foundation seems to be working out ok for me. It stays on all day, but by the end of a 12 hr shift I still have some issues with my face feeling oily. I'm still looking for the perfect foundation!
I liked the sample because I was given a variety of shades to try. This product also had good coverage.
This product is lightweight, while providing a pretty good coverage. It is smooth, radiant, and refreshing.It is a good product.
Beautiful finish and medium coverage
The first time I wore this foundation my skin looked amazing. I had heard of this line from beauty gurus and was glad to finally try it. I'm hooked!
