BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme

Hello beautiful people!  I’ve now eliminated “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and “American Sniper” from my list of Oscar nominated films to see.  I enjoyed them both, but for completely different reasons.  I’ve got three down, and four to go!  I believe “The Imitation Game” will be next.  I really love movies, and need take more time to just sit still and watch a few.


BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme

I have really been on a foundation kick lately, and am happy to report that everything I’ve tried, I’ve loved.  The BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme is no exception.


BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme

To be perfectly honest, I have never been a fan of full coverage foundations.  In fact, this is the FIRST full coverage formula I have ever tried.  I’ve always preferred a light to medium finish, but as I’ve gotten older, I realize that I got a good bit of stuff that needs covering!!!  And sometimes, you just might want a bit more of an “air-brushed” look for an event.


BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme In Olive

This baby offers 20 shades; from the fairest of fair to the deliciously chocolate.  My perfect match is “Olive”.  For comparison purposes, I am NC40 in MAC.

This foundation has a pump (yay!).  Honestly, a full pump is a bit too much.  I do the “funky finger, just a half pump please” dance with when trying to dispense.  Wish I could provide a video.  Really.  It’s a real thing.


BECCA The One Perfecting Brush

As much as I love the BECCA One Perfecting Brush, it is not the best applicator for this foundation  (as you can see, this brush has gotten a lot of love from me!).  This brush tends to grab too much of this product, and can cause a full coverage disaster.


BECCA Ultimate Coverage Complexion Creme Olive Swatch

The key to beautiful application of this foundation is to use small amounts, and BLEND as quickly as possible.  I mean work Ninja fast – one section of your face at a time.  I prefer my Shiseido Foundation Brush for this formula.

As you can see, the formula is a bit thick (and above is the half-pump I just described).  I barely touched the left side to swatch.  So, while it is a thicker formula, if you are diligent with application (blend, blend, blend), you will get a gorgeous finish.  No cake face.  Aside from under eye concealer, I did not have to use any other camouflage on my face. It covered my redness and hyper-pigmentation perfectly.  For my fellow mature ladies, as long as you don’t over-apply, it does not settle into lines/wrinkles.

If you follow me on social media, you know I lost one of my beloved cats. Few more words about my cats, they just had new friends, 2 cute bunnies, they all live in a same house – a very large outdoor rabbit hutch – with happiness.



In memory of my sweet rescue kitty, Atticus (January 20, 2015).  RIP.  He always made time to make us stop and be loving.

Again, thanks for reading!

    brilliant review as always – can’t wait to try this product. Really though I just wanted to say how sorry I am that you lost your beautiful cat xxx

    1) I am so so sorry to hear about your loss!! I’ve been a little MIA on social media this week thanks to a fibromyalgia flare up, so I must have miss that :(Animals truly leave a lasting mark in our hearts. My dog is 9 now, and I can’t imagine the day I lose her :(

    2) I have wanted to try this foundation FOREVER!! I am in love with BECCAs Stay Matte Foundation, its my holy grail, so I assume I’d love this one as well. I don’t have too much to cover, but I think this would look so great when photographed with the bright ring light!

    Hang in there Karen!! xo

      Thanks Jules! Yes, your skin is not in need of full coverage, but in case you need an airbrushed look for an event, BECCA’s got you covered! Thank you for your condolences. I hope you are doing better!!!
