Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme combines excellent full coverage in a very lightweight, breathable formula. I know lightweight and full coverage in the same sentence has to be an oxymoron of some sort but truly this formula provides excellent coverage in a formula I’m completely comfortable wearing.
I personally like sheerer coverage since I don’t require full coverage but if all full coverage products were as weightless as this I’d have no issues switching to a fuller coverage foundation product.
Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme is formulated with high concentrates of pigment and water, actually the concentrate consists of over 22% water and 21% pigment. This starts out medium but can built to complete coverage that will hide redness, hyperpigmentation, unevenness, or other imperfections. Typically foundation products contain merely 10 to 15% pigment.
I do recommend prepping well prior to application especially if your skin is drier as this does like to cling to drier areas as the finish is matte. Application with a Beauty Blender sponge of sort is an excellent idea as well as it allows you to sheer the product out considerably if you don’t need or desire too much coverage. I find it doesn’t blend out easily without prepping well it also sets very quickly so you have to work fast to get it applied. I think part of the interesting thing about the foundation is the fact it has a more seamless second-skin finish. It’s very natural when applied correctly and doesn’t appear or look mask-like. I’d liken the coverage to Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation.
The texture is a thicker cream but as I mentioned above it does prove a little hard to blend out. Dampening a makeup sponge or beauty blender of some sort helps with this but it sets SUPER quick so be prepared to work fast and efficiently to get this on.
It also happens to wear like the business. I had a really poor shade selection sent my way so I could only wear it in the house. It was ridiculous to say the least as I looked like Snooki after too much bronzer and sun. But I toughed it out to test this. Since it melds so well with skin it doesn’t transfer, fade, or oxidize. Typically matte foundation oxidize on me but this wore for a solid eight hours and still looked fresh prior to my removing it. It’ll likely were even better for oily skin and those with larger pores since it creates this perfectly blended out flawless look.
If you need full coverage but dislike the idea of wearing a mask full of makeup I’d highly recommend Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme. This provides natural, weightless, long wearing full coverage without the drama of looking like you simply have TOO much makeup on!
