I ordered the Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème foundation online and of course it’s the wrong shade probably because I bought it from the wrong retailer but more on that in a moment. I got this foundation in the shade Mink (a chocolate shade with neutral to cool undertones) but I should have gotten Sienna (a warm brown shade), which wasn’t available where I bought it. I now know this foundation comes in 20 shades.
- The claims are that the foundation’s 21% pigment ensures that uneven texture, redness, hyperpigmentation and other imperfections are completely concealed.
- It’s oil-free, long-wearing and is for all skin types.
So, even though I got the wrong shade, the foundation is still beautiful on my skin. The formula is a natural matte finish that is unquestionably full coverage. You don’t need to use more than one pump for your entire face. Because the shade was off, I didn’t get to wear it all day to test the longevity of it.
The way I use foundation is that I apply it only on the areas I want to cover mainly on the outside of my face where I have hyperpigmentation. I use a different shade of foundation or concealer that’s thinner in consistency on the inside of my face and to cover dark circles under my eyes. This way, no matter how full coverage a foundation is, I mostly avoid my makeup looking caked on.
Drugstore alternative alert:
- Covergirl Queen Collection All Day Flawless 3-in-1 foundation, $10.
- Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation, $8.
I ordered this foundation from a home shopping channel 12 days before Christmas and it took a month for it to arrive. The cost was $37 plus shipping and tax. I will be returning it though because as I’ve said, it’s the wrong shade. All 20 shades of the Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème foundation are available at Sephora and Ulta.
