I recently received the best PR package from BECCA cosmetics.
I have received BECCA packages before in the past and am I huge lover of this brand, it’s one of my favourites. So when I received this package that quite a lot of the big influencers who I look up to and watch also got this package as well, it’s safe to say I was over the moon. I think it means so much more when it’s a brand you truly love and support.
But less of me rambling and more onto what I actually received.
They have recently launched the new velvet blurring primer, which I was going to pick up actually when I was away so I was so happy I could try it early and before it actually launched in the UK. Also I got all the fair/light shades in the ultimate complexion creme foundation and the new blurring powder in pink haze. These 3 products are the perfect combo to achieve smooth looking skin that is blurred and radiant but also still looks and feels like your skin. which is what I love about all of the BECCA products I’ve tried.
want a flawless, airbrushed base? Then you need this new velvet blurring primer. It’s a liquid to powder blurring primer that reduces the appearance of pores, fine lines and imperfections. Super light texture that is oil free which helps absorb the appearance of excess oil and extends the wear of makeup. it’s Brightening with the apricot hue formula, it helps to brighten up the skin and is also smoothing as it’s infused with pore blurring powders to diffuse light for a velvety soft finish.
Make sure to shake before use, One pump is enough but I use two just to make sure I’ve covered my whole face, I really buff it into the skin and I love using it with the BECCA one perfecting brush. I actually have one of these already and you can use it with creams, liquid and powders. This does dry down pretty quick you will notice how soft and powdery it starts to feel. I definitely think this is more suited to oily/combo skin but It could be used for all skin types. Just make sure if you’re super dry to moisturise well before.
Available to buy from Becca cosmetics, Sephora and ulta for $38 and is available in the UK on space NK for £32.
The ultimate coverage foundation is one I have wanted to try for some time, it’s been out a while but has kind of been relaunched. It’s a full coverage foundation which claims to have 24 hour wear, its water-resistant enriched with intense pigments and water to give good coverage and a gorgeous natural finish.
It’s oil free and contains 22% water to hydrate the skin without that cakey full coverage feel that some full coverage foundations have. It comes in a good selection of shades 20 in total ranging from the lightest to deepest. I’m normally the lightest in foundations and the shade porcelain is perfect for me. I apply this with the one perfecting brush and buff and apply in circular motions. It feels quite thick to start off with and you defiantly can see it’s a full coverage foundation. But I like the fact you can still see and feel your skin, it’s not heavy or looks like you’re wearing loads of foundation. just a tip If you are dry just make sure to exfoliate and moisturise well before use.
Available from BECCA cosmetics, Sephora and ulta for $44 and also available in the UK from space nk and cult beauty for £34.
my perfect shade is porcelain, but also shell could work for me. I love more neutral foundation shades, where as the others are a little bit more yellow toned.
If you have got this far then you know it’s essential to set your makeup, whether you’re oily or dry setting your foundation is a must. And this is another product I have wanted to try, the soft light blurring powder, it comes in two shades transparent which is more of a peachy/flesh colour and this new one which is pink haze. Now don’t be put off by the bright pink colour, it blends into the skin and doesn’t leave you with a pink face or pink flash back. This powder is gorgeous for blurring, brightening and looking radiant and airbrushed. This fine powder is supposed to act like a filter for your face, blurring imperfections and making skin look and feel more luminous. It eliminates shine without making the skin look dry and too matte so I do think this is lovely for both oily and dry skin.
can we also just talk about the packaging how beautiful is it? best packaging and setting powder I’ve seen. well done BECCA! If you want a powder that is really matte and to bake etc then I dont think this one is for you but if your like me and maybe dont need to bake and rely on setting your face but you still like to powder certain areas of your face then you will love this, I personally love the fact it’s brightening and makes the skin look so luminous but without looking oily. I think BECCA really nail it with making your skin look so gorgeous and natural and really enhancing your own skin.

Again BECCA haven’t disappointed with these new products, and I have got even more products to add to my favourites, I’m now trying to decide what I really need to take away with me out of this lot as I’m in a bit of a dilemma ha ha I can’t take it all as I am running out of room! I think the primer will be amazing in the heat though so that’s definitely coming and I think the powder will also be great to just refresh my makeup and make me not look to oily!
will you be picking up any of these new BECCA products. let me know below.
