Monday Morning Must-Haves: BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème

Monday Morning Must-Haves: BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème

For some reason, no matter how much R & R I get over the weekend, I always seem to look rather lackluster on Mondays. My skin is in great shape, but not flawless. I have melasma, which I hate, but it’s a product of being in my 50s. That’s why I’m so in love with BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème (foundation), it turns my skin from good to great.

Here are the deets about BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème $49:

BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme

What it is:
A full-coverage yet breathable foundation formulated with high concentrations of pigment and water.

What it does:
Ideal for any skin type, this formula contains a balance of 21 percent pure pigment and 22 percent water, which work in synergy to completely conceal imperfections, redness, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture in a weightless cream.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:
For seamless application, apply one pump of crème to a well-hydrated face after moisturizer or primer is fully absorbed, using a brush to blend flawlessly. While the average foundation formula contains 10 to 15 percent pigment and five to 10 percent water, this product contains 21 percent pure pigment and 22 percent water to give you ultimate coverage with a light feel. If you are between shades, choose the lighter shade because of the formula’s high pigment concentration.

My results:

BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème has become my superhero foundation. One pump of this fabulous foundation is more than enough to yield flawless skin. I apply it with a beauty blender and  even under my eyes, my skin is even and clear. The pigment is so potent that my melasma and dark circles vanish. All that without looking heavy or feeling like I’m wearing a full-coverage foundation.

My color in BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème is Bamboo; I’m a medium/light brown and I found the color match to be spot on! I have never been able to read a color description before and choose my foundation with success, but this happened on the Sephora website. (Bamboo is dark tan beige, yellow/golden undertones.)

Along with flawless coverage and perfect color matching, BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Crème wears well for hours. No coming off your clothes, no fading or sliding. I love mixing this with the Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold, it just makes my skin look like I’m in love. And I am — with this foundation. My review of the Skin Perfector is linked here.

Some may feel that $49 is pricey for a foundation, but with such a high level of pigment, you get mega-payoff and use so little for full-coverage.  It’s well worth the price! And, with 20 brown girl friendly shades that are in yellow and red tones, it’s a no brainer. Lean in girls!
