When a product promises skin-like luminosity my ears perk up… I’m listening. BECCA as a brand has always been the one for fresh looking skin and if you want to look like an Aussie babe Becca is the brand to go to. On a recent trip to Space NK I spied their new foundation, the Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation. I quickly picked up my shade and headed home for a quick cleanse and foundation re-application.
The packaging is a little confusing, you have to shake it up, twist the lid slightly, press down on the pusher, twist the lid off completely and then press again to release the dropper. Maybe a little too faffy for me but the important thing is what comes out!
The foundation is 32% water hence the “aqua” in the name and it truly gives the iconic Becca look to the skin, natural luminosity. I’ve tried applying it with my fingers and with a damp sponge and both work great. It definitely gives that wet, one with the skin look and feel which I completely love, one application is light to medium but it can be built up to a medium coverage. There are eight “flexible” shades in the range which doesn’t sound like that many but Becca have said they picked specific shades that can work with all different skin tones. I am shade Fair and it works perfectly with my skin tone.
The foundation is £34 and you get 30ml of product. I’ve really been loving this so far, I’ll try and use it in a tutorial video soon!
