Hello everyone and welcome back. Today I have another foundation review for you. Foundation is one of the products I have the most difficulty in finding the one. I have awkward skin that foundation doesn’t like to stick to and it has a tendency to wear off pretty quickly. My skin has got better in the past year or so as it’s not as oily as it used to be, but it’s still awkward!
I have a soft spot for Becca products. I adore the packaging and I love buying them as a treat (when QVC have bundle deals on!) I got this foundation with a number of other products and have been trying it out on and off for a couple of months now. Here are Becca’s claims of the product –
“Veil your skin with foundation coverage that feels water-light, while it evens and perfects the complexion. Each weightless Fluid drop imparts subtle luminosity that blues imperfections and creates a soft focus glow. In a range of flexible shades with light, buildable coverage, Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation imparts a healthy, natural glow”
The outer box is standard Becca packaging, a beautiful metallic gunmetal with white and silver text. The bottle is a weighty frosted glass with a gunmetal lid, and you dispense the product through a dropper. The dispenser isn’t my favourite. You have to part unscrew the top, and then a button pops out which you press down to bring the foundation up into the dropper. It’s a little fiddly and not the quickest way to dispense, and the lip of the bottle gets messy very quickly.
The foundation is quite thin, but it’s not as runny as I was expecting it to be. When you put it on the back of your hand it doesn’t really move, I was expecting a very thin, watery product.
I find this gives me a nice medium coverage. I have had a little difficulty with getting this to blend nicely on my skin. I’ve used the Becca Backlight Priming Filter as a base which I thought would be perfect for this foundation but I found that it doesn’t blend well over the top. I’ve also used the Becca First Light Priming Filter over the past few days and have found that it performs much better on the top of this primer.
I was expecting a very natural finish from this foundation but on me, I have found it does look quite makeup-y, in the sense that you can see it on the skin and it doesn’t really blend in as well as I was expecting. You can only tell when you’re up close, but it’s not the finish I was expecting. It doesn’t have the glowy finish I was expecting either, and you can see signs of wear within a few hours of wearing.
Overall, this isn’t my favourite foundation. It’s nice to use if you’re only wearing your base for a few hours and you want something to just even out the skin, but I can’t really get it to work well enough for me. It’s not a product that I can see myself repurchasing.
Have you tried this foundation? What were your thoughts? Any tips on getting it to work better for me? Take care and I’ll be back soon ❤
