Finally found my holy grail foundation!I was obsessed with KVD lock-it tattoo foundation and thought I could never find anything as full coverage but this crÃ¨me is 1) completely full coverage (covers acne, redness and imperfections) 2) easy to blend (I use a sigma f80 and bounce it into my skin, definitely don't recommend using beauty blender) 3) feels like you aren't wearing makeup at all and looks so natural and gives such a beautiful semi-matte finish.Amazing for all skin types, especially oily skin, it really does a great job controlling oils whereas my oils would poke through after a few hours with KVD lock-it tattoo foundation.I am guilty of using a lot of foundation (2 or 3 pumps for my face) but with this crÃ¨me you literally need one pump for the entire face to be completely covered and still be able to blend onto your jawline/neck. The price is up there but using one pump or less every time you use it, it should last a pretty long time and it is seriously so worth the splurge every few months.Bottom line, if you're looking for a full coverage, second skin type of foundation that controls oils, covers blemishes/imperfections/redness go for this.

This foundation provides excellent coverage but that's about the only good thing about it. It emphasizes pores and fine lines horribly, it is highly transferable and not at all long lasting. In short, disappointing!

This stuff at first application makes me feel like spackle is being applied to my face. However, in the last few years, my pores have gotten huge and other blemishes and unsightly things have been popping up (pre-menopause can wreck havoc on many things as a woman!), so I figured this 'foundation' would be beneficial in making my skin look 'better'. Here are the pros and cons I have found with this: PROS: Excellent coverage No scent that I can really detectIt is a SUPER-THICK, heavy-duty product (Reminds me almost of stage makeup, it is so heavy but it does not feel heavy like stage makeup)Does not irritate my skin (I have sensitive skin) Despite it being/feeling heavy while applying, it does not feel heavy at all once applied Convenient pump bottle that will let you pump out small or larger amounts as needed Does not dry the skin, yet does not make the skin 'shiny'. I appreciate that, bc my skin is wonky lately and is either very dry or very shiny on any given day, no rhyme or reason (other than, as I said, the suspected pre-menopause stage of life I am currently in). CONS: It dries fast, so you need to blend fast. I do one section at a time (apply and blend to one cheek first, then apply and blend to the other cheek, then the forehead, and so on..) The bottle is a matte greyish/black plastic/rubbery-kind-of-feeling. Similar in look and feel to the Nars blushes. And like the Nars blushes, the container gets dirty easily. Limited shade selection. I can't really find a 'perfectly matching' shade for me. IMO many of the shades have yellow undertones. I am cool toned/cool tones work better for me, so that could also be why I have trouble finding a shade that matches well. I am currently tan, so I thought I might be able to use a more yellow tone. I ended up getting 'Tan' and it is too light, but the next 2 shades darker made me look jaundice. :( Also worth noting in my opinion: It is such heavy duty coverage, this stuff does not play around, it means business! So some may have a hard time blending this and not getting a heavy handed or 'cake' face. I use a beauty blender with this, and even with that, I have to blend, blend, blend, BLEND!! more than any foundation or cream product I have ever used. I think you definitely need a brush or a beauty blender to blend this. I think using just your fingertips won't blend it well enough. So, if you are someone who does not like to use makeup tools, and you prefer using your fingertips, you might want to rethink getting thos product...JMO. I suppose someone may very well use their fingertips with this and have it blend just fine. That is not my personal experience (and I prefer using my clean fingertips). I think if you have a special skin condition, redness, or major blemishes or larger (not huge) pores you would like to 'hide,' this might be worth checking out. I think this is targeted more towards us older ladies - but obviously any age can wear it, especially if they need the benefits of a heavy-duty, full-coverage 'foundation'. This does currently retail for $44.00USD, so I would recommend if at all possible going to a store that carries this to swatch it and see how it looks on you/ and to find the right shade, as the shade selection is limiting and kind of 'off,' imho. If I had not done that, I likely would have chosen a shade that would have been all wrong for me. Personally, I do not like or want to have to buy 2 shades of foundation and mix them - which in a perfect world for the perfect shade, I feel I would have to do with this. But I do not dislike the product nor the shade enough to return it. This definitely is a 'purpose' foundation for some people who need super-duper coverage. If you have really good or even decent skin and no skin issues, this would probably not be for you. If you do not like blending like crazy, this probably would be a frustrating product for you. I gave it 4 stars because I think it fits a need out there that is not filled by very many companies. It is heavy duty coverage and feels decent on the skin and does not oxidize to a funny shade. It also does not break down during the day like some heavy duty foundations can, which for the price, it SHOULD 'behave'!! ;) Still, the poor shade selection and needing to blend at the speed of light made me take a star off of the rating. I dislike having to work 'in sections' with my makeup. So, I like this well enough, but would not repurchase. I will go back to either Estee Lauder Double Wear or Revlon Colorstay when this is done. I would not recommend this ; but at the same time, I feel it serves a purpose for some women out there. You can get a total 'China Doll' complexion if you are willing to work with this; I just find that it just does not go on 'easily,' and requires a bit of work, imo. Nice product, just not a perfect product, imho. Not for the price. But it definitely serves a purpose for some people.

I've had this foundation for a few months now. Initially I was looking for a foundation that wouldn't budge (foundations often slip all over my face and are gone by lunchtime) yet still looked natural. Cost me about AU$53 online as Becca is hard to buy in shops these days (rrp is $73 or so). I chose the Olive shade as that's the shade I am in the Luminous Skin Colour sheer foundation (which is being discontinued). My skin is fair-medium, NW30, By Terry 08 Beige, Chanel 30, GA 5.5. Unfortunately the Olive was way too dark and I couldn't wear it. Annoyed, I put it away in my cupboard for a bit.I pulled it out again last month and found that if I mixed a tiny bit of the foundation with my Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl, it works really well on my face, shade wise and coverage wise. So now I apply by using a drop of the foundation (probably a quarter to half a pump, that's all you need seriously) with one pump of the SSP, mixing it in my fingers and applying it on my face almost like a moisturiser. It goes on and stays put with little to no transfer onto clothes etc, even after heavy exercise. It melts into the skin without going blotchy or patchy. I don't need to use concealer and I don't need to retouch at all. It doesn't break me out either. It's now a good colour match for my skin and makes my skin look even toned and glowing without overt shimmer, oiliness or flatness. It will last a long time given how little I need to use each time and for that I think it's value for money. I'd repurchase but in a different shade that actually matches my skin so I don't have to mix! Cashmere looks like it'd be a better match. Just bear in mind that the shades do seem to run 2-3 shades darker than the LSC.

I wanted to really like this foundation as I love Becca's Highlighers and Blushes.Initially when I got this foundation, I liked it. Thought the coverage was great and the finish was beautiful.Unfortunately, as time went on, I did not like this foundation.I think the packaging is lovely. Very sleek and modern.I have been using this for a while and would not re-purchase it. Its very expensive at $44 which equates to roughly â‚¬38. The transfer on this foundation is not great. Sometimes when I use this foundation, I find smears of make up on my clothes. It comes off very easily.I use a buffing brush to buff this into the skin (Real Techniques) and it still looks cakey to me. I also used a flat top Kabuki (Sigma F80) which made it look even worse.I have dry/combination skin and I found this foundation stuck to my dry patches like glue. I also found that the foundation melted off on my oily bits. This was even with a primer on underneath. I personally feel that this foundation doesn't justify the price at $44. I really wanted to like this foundation but unfortunately, it wasn't for me!!

I have mixed feelings about this one. I LOVE Becca's products, especially their highlighters and primers, so I decided to stray from my usual Mac Matchmaster and give the Becca Ultimate coverage a go. First off, the finish is beautiful!! I find that, because I'm dark skinned, brands that do carry foundation in my skin tone wind up being too red or too ashy looking. I wore the shade "Sandalwood" and found it to be a good match to my true complexion. The finish was absolutely beautiful. The reason I'm knocking points off is because of the MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF TRANSFER this product gives off. After a few hours, I could literally touch my face and there would be foundation all over my hands. I would hug someone and if I wasn't careful, there would be brown foundation all over their shirt. Not cute, to say the least lol. This was a really disappointing aspect of the product and unfortunately, I don't think I'd purchase it again for that reason. Switching back to my MAC :(

My skin isn't too problematic when it comes to foundation, so the only thing I'm really looking for is oil control, something long lasting, and something my skin tone. As a medium skinned black woman with very yellow undertones, finding something in my shade alone has been a hassle so even if I find something that meet the other 2 standards, it doesn't really matter. Well, I can say that I believe my search has come to an end. At this particular time I am looking or a full coverage to wear when going out because my last foundation sweated like crazy after a while and it was really greasy. This foundation is super lightweight -- I never felt it all day, very pigmented so that I don't have to color correct, and pretty easy to apply. I apply the foundation with the RT Expert Face brush in stippling motions and I usually have to use 2.5 pumps. It controls oil well all day. From around 8 am when I first put the foundation on, until 6 pm I blotted only 2 times. And this is saying a lot coming from me. I have an oil slick face that usually involves blotting plus applying a mattifying powder multiple times a day. And best of all, the color Tobacco is probably the most perfect shade of any foundation I have ever tried. Perfect undertone and everything! I also found that it didn't oxidize on me, so that's a plus!The only downfall, and the reason why I can't give it 5 stars is because it tends to settle into fine lines and can get splotchy. Like the reviewer under me says, it definitely does settle. I've got one line on my left cheek that always comes through my foundation and I can't lie, as much as this foundation costs, I feel like it shouldn't be settling into anything or getting blotchy.

I bought this product a couple of months ago and now after using it for a while I think I can provide a good review for this product. The texture is light and airy with a little bit of a liquid feel (reminds me EstÃ©e Lauder maximum cover, just not as dry). I feel as though it is a balance between a liquid and a cream. The foundation applies really smooth and seems to glide on really easily. I have used a flat top, beauty blender and also a traditional paddle brush. I found that if you wanted the maximum amount of coverage the flat top worked best but the foundation needed to be set immediately because it would settle really easily. The beauty blender was somewhat more forgiving and provided coverage but with a natural feel. The paddle brush was an absolute fail (too streaky). The coverage was medium full to full coverage it reminded me a lot of EstÃ©e Lauder maximum cover in terms of coverage. The finish was not matte it was like a satin. I felt as though the foundation did not fully set and needed a powder to prevent it from creasing, it also had the tendency to crack around certain areas of my face like mouth and sides of my nose. Around the 4 hour mark my face became really greasy and the foundation would transfer like crazy onto everything. The longer you wear the foundation the more it separates I found this to be true with and without primer. I bought the shade olive and for reference I am nc40, 3w2 cashew in EstÃ©e Lauder, m57 in kat Von d lock it foundation. Overall it's not a bad foundation but it's not one I would repurchase again, if you like the coverage of kat Von d lock it tattoo foundation but not the texture then you will absolutely love this one. I would also recommend trying the double wear maximum cover as they seem to fall in the same sort of spectrum when it comes to texture and coverage.

This is very comparable to Urban Decay Naked Skin. I really like this foundation. I purchased the shade Olive. For reference, I'm 6.0 in Naked Skin and NC40 in MAC. Shade: To compare the shade Olive to UD's 6.0 which is considered olive, the Becca leans more golden for me. It matches but I find the UD's 6.0 matches better because it contains more of a beige-green tint to it. The downside, no other Becca shade matches me. They are either too yellow, too peachy, too light or too dark. When I'm not self-tanning, Olive might be a smidge too golden for me.Coverage: With two full pumps, I get solid medium coverage. I don't particularly feel this is considered full coverage. I can still see my circles peeking through. Also, I needed to add concealer over an acne scar and this is after I applied two layers of foundation. The coverage is a lot like UD's Naked Skin. To compare this with a true full coverage foundation like Estee Lauder Double Wear and MUFE Mat Velvet+, Becca Ultimate Coverage doesn't compare at all. Formulation: This foundation is on the thick side. I can slightly feel this on my skin. But, the feeling is not as bad as Double Wear. I can live with it! It doesn't feel like a mask.Finish: I adore the finish of this foundation. It looks very nice in various lighting. It even looks nice in florescent lighting! It has a true satin finish. I do need to set this foundation with powder. I don't consider this a matte finish.Packaging: I love the packaging. The design is sleek and modern. The pump is incredible. You can actually control how much you want. The pump even allows you to pump out less than half of a pump! How many times can I say pump in a sentence? Peter pressed the pump to pump less than half a pump. Anyway, my point is that there are a lot of crappy pumps out there. I like that you can control how much without wasting product. Cost and Availability: $44.00 (US) for 1.01oz. Available at Beccacosmetics.com, Ulta & Sephora.Update: No breakouts with this. I wasn't using this with a primer because I wanted to get a feel of the true performance of this. By the end of the day, my face was pretty oily with some fading along the sides of my face. I tried this again with primer and I didn't get oily and it didn't fade. So, if you are on the oily side I would definitely use a primer under this to get the best performance. For reference, my favorite primer to use is the Rimmel 02 primer (white tube with navy blue lettering).

My hg foundation! I got the shade Olive and it was perfect! It's got yellow + olive + green tones in it which I like! I bought the shade bamboo at first thinking thag it will be more perfect for my tanned golden skin but it was not golden in any angle. It is slight brownish and red with a hair golden tones in it making my face very dark ( darker than nc42) so i bought the Olive as well to mix them . Planning on using the Bamboo as a contour shade. Anyhow the foundation is so pigmented and it evens out the skin very much. The finish is matte but oil control isnt impressive but it's decent. I wear this everytime. It has more coverage than the becca ever matte. But they share the same color . I love it so much! Just a dollop size and your face is covered.it is buildable but it dries a bit fast so you have to be quick and you have to work in sections! i highly recommend this perpetually perfecting product.
