Becca x Chrissy Teigen Face Glow Palette.

I was so excited when I heard that this palette was gonna be a thing. I mean, a brand that I appreciate and Chrissy Teigen team up to create a palette? Yeah, I’m there. Also, if you’re not following her on Twitter or Snapchat or Instagram, then I don’t know what to tell you about your life, cause she is hilarious!

I heard about the palette about two weeks before it dropped, and I was able to get it from Sephora a few days before it officially launched as an app exclusive offering. As with any highly anticipated launch there were all sorts of problems happening in the background. Pre-launch orders got cancelled before they shipped, cause apparently Lazership was breaking everything. Luckily mine came intact, albeit way later than a usual Sephora shipment.

Becca Backlight Priming Filter

IMAG1633

I got the Becca Backlight primer cause I’m Becca obsessed and well, it was new and I wanted to try it. It’s a radiance primer and generally speaking, I don’t care for most of them because I think they make me look super greasy. But this is Becca right? Where subtlety is the name of the game. Besides which, the only other radiance primer that I’ve ever liked, the one from Japonesque (review here), I managed to break it. Yeah.

Becca Mineral Blushes!

I’ve become a true enthusiast of Becca cosmetics. They’re so flawless and subtle, it’s hard not to love pretty much everything that the brand debuts. The only thing that generally stops me is that it’s also pricey.

The mineral blushes aren’t new, but up to this point I hadn’t found a shade that I really loved. I’d tried Songbird, but since it was so peachy at the base, it mostly disappeared on me.

Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealing Cream.

I’ve yet to meet a Becca product that I absolutely hate. For me to truly hate something, it has to be spectacularly bad, like off the charts bad. Even then things that I initially hate, I come back to and try again, cause you can’t ever really be sure, ya know? Like you may be having a bad skin day, or year, I dunno. sometimes, the products still suck, but other times you just have to learn to work with it like Kevyn Aucoin SSE.

This came pretty close to a dislike, and more because of the price than anything else. The Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealing Cream clocks in at a hefty $32 for .16oz. Now Becca products are generally pretty expensive, but in this case I felt the performance didn’t live up to the price tag. For that much, it should perform like a superstar and fit me like second skin. It’s doesn’t precisely do that.

Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation

Whenever I hear the words luminous and foundation in the same sentence, I tend to walk away real fast. For someone that has combination skin that most often veers towards oily, that can turn into you just looking like a greaseball. But, it’s Becca so you know that I had to at least try it, even though that always touted Becca Glow just looks greasy and hot to me.

This foundation was a trial for most people I think, for one thing it only comes in 8 shades. According to Becca they’re flexible enough that they adapt to each person’s individual skin tone. Though how something neutral is going to adapt to my yellow/gold/peach undertones was entirely beyond me, but I decided to be a boss about it and do it anyway.
