Is Becca Zero Pigment Foundation what of the makeup world’s most brilliant ideas or just a crazy gimmick? Picture this. A foundation with zero pigment that blurs and smooths skin giving it a transparent, matte finish. Wait a minute, isn’t that what primer does?
Becca Zero Pigment Foundation contains absolutely pigment. It’s completely transparent so no need to match your skin. Without the pigment it basically enhances your own skin giving it a perfect appearance. It uses Clear Light Blue Technology which is a water releasing powder what burst upon contact to blur the appearance of imperfections. It also contains hyaluronic acid. Here’s where things get more interesting though….! If you’re like me and thinking, “Oh sounds like a primer!” you might be interested to know it is silicone-free! Hmmm! And apparently it controls oil all day while still providing moisture. The gel-like texture is cool upon contact with skin absorbs instantly leaving behind smooth skin.
Along with the foundation there’s a new Becca Zero Face + Lip Glass Highlighter ($24). Again, this is absolutely pigment-free! This is a clear multi-use highlighter that gives skin a glass-like glow without the sticky feel. It can be used on the high points of your face for a glass-like look as well as on lips for a glossy shine. I wonder if you wanted to create glass eye look you can use your favorite powder eyeshadow and mix it with this and apply on lids!
I’m interesting in the Zero Pigment Foundation but I do have some beef with Becca sometimes! Like remember the Becca Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer? I felt like that was a waste and a gimmick. Didn’t work for me at all! I had high hopes for it too! Boo! I think for me Becca excels at highlighters and blushes but I’m sort of meh on everything else they do! What about you? Are you a fan of their line?
Would you try a Zero Pigment Foundation or does this sound like primer to you?
