Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealing Creme

Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealing Creme ($32) is a newly launched concentrated creamy concealer that’s available in 12 shades. This actually launched along with the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector that I recently reviewed.

I’m a concealer junkie and although I’ve found formulas I love and use daily I’m always on the hunt for the next best thing! Becca’s formula sounds intriguing since they throw around words like ultimate, creamy, and pigmented…!

Let’s take a look!

Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealer

Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealing Creme comes housed in a glass jar and is priced at $32 for 0.16 oz. It’s a little expensive yes but I had hopes for the formula so I honestly didn’t mind the price all that much.

This is interesting formula you are either going to love or hate. Personally I don’t like it. It quite reminds me of a stickier more emollient version of Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(Marc)able Full Cover Concealer which is another product that didn’t quite work well for me.

Personally I like liquid or gel concealers for use under my eyes but I’ve run across solid cream concealers such as this that work great as well. I just prefer liquids because they seem to blend easier. Since I rely on concealer for under eye use only this was kinda a fail for me. You might feel it works better on your face but it does feel a bit too emollient and sticky for use on face. Under my eyes I feel like it’s a bit difficult to blend out. A brush is very helpful in this case such as the Sephora #21 as you can buff the thicker texture out so it doesn’t cling and cake into finer lines.

I generally like emollient concealers because they are virtually unmovable and quite a good pick if you have either drier or oily eyes. However, the emollient texture of a solid concealer like this doesn’t quite translate as well as a liquid would. I feel like it drags a lot under my drier eyes and will prove really difficult to apply if you have crepey, aging skin.

No doubt this is crazy pigmented and provides excellent coverage. It isn’t as quite long wearing as they market it as it is a very thickly textured concealer. If you have oily skin the formula is fairly waterproof and will wear strongly. Likewise for drier skin but I do feel it migrates into my finer lines at around hour five of wear. I can get about eight hours of solid wear from it but not without some creasing.

If you liked Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(Marc)able Full Cover Concealer or you generally like super emollient thicker solid cream concealers this is a big yay. It’s very pigmented, very concentrated, and quite long wearing. However, I don’t think it’s the friendliest formula in the world for those of us with aging eyes or those who don’t want to tug to blend. I felt like it was too tacky and just didn’t look as natural as I had hoped for. This isn’t to say it’s bad, just not a formula I enjoy using!

    Concealer is an item that I struggle with. I feel like with everything else even though it is fun to try new things I have staples that I always return to. But concealer I have never found one that I love. I am like you and don’t really use it on my face but I need it under my eyes desperately. I have a few freckles right under my eye that makes that whole area look very dark and I am really self conscious about it. My undereye area is so dry and most of them I’ve tried make my eyes look ever drier. What is your absolute favorite concealer for under eyes?

    I have tried many concealers and even though I found some that work fine on me I still haven’t found one that i completely love, my under-eye skin is dry, I have some fine lines and severe dark circles and this combination of things make it supper annoying for me to find something good. They either don’t cover enough or get stuck on my fine lines or show my dryness is a nightmare lol.
    Please Isabella I would appreciate your advice since you have gone through a fair share of concealers anything that you believe would work for me? maybe a corrector?

      hi mercy read the comments below, I suggested Em Concealer, this is one I use fairly often in the winter because it’s perfect for drier eyes! Hope this helps!

    I have just ordered it as well as Laura Mercier Camouflage Cream. As you can read between the lines I have issues I need to cover on my face, my cheeks are this red color that I really like to cover up as I find it a lot more fun to do my makeup with a clean slate! 🙂 Seems like this might be going to work, especially because the lightest shade, Praline has a fair neutral undertone, and that is me in a jar. My problem is that most that comes with that description is fairly orange, and that is not flattering (Coverfx in N X-light)
    Great review! 🙂

    How does this product compare to Kevyn Aucoin skin enhancer? Which would you recommend for oily skin?

  • Amanda

    What shade do you recommend for nc15-20 skin?
    I was thinking of either Banana or Tahini to cover my acne…
