BECCA Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation SPF 25+. Review and Swatches. Rave

Today I want to tell you about a special product that I have included in my November favourites, and have been loving for months already. It is BECCA’s Luminous Skin Colour Ultra-Sheer Foundation SPF 25+.

The name is very spot- on!  You get a very light coverage, dewy  foundation. Imagine if you would mix your serum or moisturizer with a bit of your regular foundation,  now you get the idea.

I personally prefer a light coverage on my face, and more coverage where I need it, instead of full-on (often heavy, and sometimes even mask-like foundation) all over.  And with this product you get exactly that – it is light-as-air.

Although it can cover only minor imperfections,  it is actually fantastic! You get a polished, healthy looking and more even complexion! Just add some under-eye highlighter/concealer and dots of concealer where you need to hide any imperfections on your face, and you will get a very natural-looking  result!

It looks just like your skin, but

BECCA Ultimate Matte Lip Colour in Eloise Review and Lip Swatches

Today I want to tell you about the lipstick which I have already mentioned a few times  – BECCA’s Ultimate Matte Lip Colour.

I have a shade which is called Eloise, and is described as a ballet pink by the brand. I would say that it’s a pretty every day neutral pink. This is my kind of nude-ish lipstick, as I don’t do actual nudes,  they make me look dead.

The formula is promised to be hydrating, wax-free and enriched with vitamin E and emollients, creamy,  with ultra

BECCA Compact Concealer in Latte Review and Swatches

I am actually surprised that I haven’t written about BECCA’s Compact Concealer before as it is a must-have for me.

There are 34 colours so everyone can choose the right shade, mine is called Latte and it’s a great match, although it was made on-line!

It comes in a signature BECCA packaging and inside you get a medium and high cover concealers which is very clever actually.

This concealer gives the most amazing coverage, it covers all the red spots, scars and under-eye circles and at the same time it blends into the skin. You can’t see it (if you’ve got the right shade of course). This is genius! High coverage  and

BECCA The Ultimate Mascara Review, Photos and Swatches

I don’t like using many mascaras at the same time because they all dry out too fast. So when I’ve finished  two  mascaras  that were in my rotation, I’ve realized that it was time to try a new one. And I’ve decided to open the BECCA one which I’ve got with this set at winter.

You all know how much I love BECCA so I was very curious about their only mascara which is called The Ultimate Mascara and retails for £18. It is described as  “Advanced, water-resistant, micro-tubing mascara formula lengthens and thickens the lashes while a conical shaped brush curls, lifts and separates in one easy coat.”

I have never tried  a tubing mascara  before so I was really excited to!

So how did this mascara work for me?

When I don’t get enough of sleep, and it would be easier to say when I do, my eyes are really watery so most of the mascaras (talking about those that are not waterproof) run on me and this one doesn’t move! Like seriously, it is long lasting and stays on perfectly! I will even tell you a secret… Several times I had a nap with this mascara on during the day and even after 1.5-2 hours of sleep it stayed on really well. So it is true that it doesn’t smudge, clump or melt.

Some mascaras can irritate my eyes and this didn’t, so I would say  it is great for sensitive eyes.

As this is the only mascara BECCA has, one would assume it

BECCA The Showgirl Palette Review and Swatches

After showing you a preview of BECCA’s Halcyon Days palette for SS2011 I thought I’d show you the palette which I have and which is called Showgirl Palette (£ 55/€69/$65)

“Enchant and bewitch with the Limited Edition Showgirl Palette from BECCA. A scintillating confection of glamorous shades for eye, lips, and cheeks, this convenient palette offers everything needed to get oh-so-gorgeous.”

The Showgirl Palette contains:

  • Lip & Cheek Crème – Hollyhock (berry)
  • Nude Lip Gloss – Parisette (soft pink)
  • Eye Colour Wash – Tulle (misty lilac)
  • Eye Colour Wash – Charmeuse (mushroom beige)
  • Eyeliner – Emmanuelle (dark brown)
  • Dual ended brush – eyeliner/eye shadow brush combination

Now this is  a pricey palette but the quality is exceptional in my opinion and it is much cheaper than getting the BECCA products individually so I think it is worth the investment.

Let’s take a look at all the products separately now.
