Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme Review & Swatches

Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme Foundation

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

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.

Shade: Bamboo

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!

    I really liked this. I took a wild card by choosing it as a sample on and the sample came with two of the lightest shades, and one of them was a perfect match, really liked the coverage this product gave. It had a yellow tone to it, and once blended looked so natural and even me out. I was impressed with this product as I’m new to trying this brand. I saved the sample package so I know what shade I am when I do go and buy it in the future.

    This product is awesome! I love the fact that it comes in a wide range of colors, esp for those like me with neutral skin colors. I find that this goes on best with the real techniques expert face brush if I spread it to a thin layer on the back of my hand first. I also have weird combo skin with dry patches and it handles them better then any other foundation I have tried so far. It also is easy on my super sensitive skin. Yea no sunscreen!

      I couldn’t agree more about no sunscreen! I think adding spf would make it greasy it’s perfect as is

    Thanks for this review. I have a sample of this I’m waiting to try after I finish my Laura Mercier Silk Creme. I love the Silk Creme to pieces, but with summer approaching, I want something similar that can handle my combo skin and oily tzone.


    • 4/25/14 11:18 Isabella Muse:

      Let me know if you try LU would love to hear your thoughts!

    Thanks for the review. Had me going until the matte part. I’m a dewy, glowy girl. Use the Hourglass Tinted Moisturizer. But I’ll check it out. Maybe mixed in with some of their highlighter..


    • 4/25/14 13:08 Isabella Muse:
