I bought this in cashmere and have persisted with it or the last 6 months, the main problems I have is that it is way too yellow...I look like I have mild jaundice and it makes the redness in my face look worse, I soo wanted this becca product that I ignored the fact I'd spent 40 minutes trying to find a match, I just couldn't believe the shade range was so poor, it's now consigned to the drawer.

Why did I not try this long ago? It's exactly what I've been looking for to wear on days when I don't want to wear a heavier foundation/full makeup look. Nude is a great match for my fair-medium complexion--I thought Camel would be better, but it's *really* yellow. Anyway, this goes on like a dream--fingers work great, no brushes needed. It feels wonderful on the skin--very light and moisturizing, but not *too* moisturizing. It gives a glowy but not greasy look, and wears well all day (although I don't know how it'll do in desert summer heat). I use this, Becca concealer to cover imperfections, Becca Baroque Shadow, and Becca lip and cheek Tint in Fig for a natural yet polished look. I just add a bit of liner, mascara, and a sheer lipstick, and maybe a touch of powder to set the concealer and I'm good to go. Sometimes I use it alone just to even out my skin tone and that works great, too. Excellent product, and I will repurchase.

I tend to gravitate towards sheer foundations that have a natural finish and look like skin. I had read about Luminous Skin and decided to give it a go. Immediately I noticed the huge shade range on Becca's site. There is also a helpful chart that divides the foundations, concealers, and powders into depth and undertone to help you select the correct shade. I also like Becca's theory on foundation and found it similar to my own. In a nutshell, they say that you should use a very sheer foundation all over, then conceal as needed, and set with powder. In my experience this looks far better than slapping a full coverage foundation on all over. I also like that you get 1.7 oz (as opposed to the traditional 1 oz size of most foundations). PackagingThe packaging is a nice pump that allows you to adjust the amount you want (meaning it doesn't squirt out a huge amount if you press gently). Like other Becca products, the packaging is sleek and minimal which I love. I really hate bulky, overdone packaging (like Benefit) to this is right up my alley. ColorI range from NC15-35 in MAC but am more olive and less yellow than a true NC. Because my skin tone changes throughout the year I buy two shades of most foundations that I buy: one that matches me at my palest and one that matches me at my darkest. I read that the yellow shades in Becca were extremely yellow and that the neutrals leaned yellow but not extremely so. I ordered Nude and Olive to mix as needed. Nude is about and NC20 and Olive is around an NC30/35. Texture, Coverage, and FinishWhen I tried Luminous Skin I immediately liked it. It's very sheer with a dewy finish. It does smell like sunscreen but I quite like that. I prefer applying this with fingers rather than a brush because of the thin consistency and like to use it along with the Becca stick foundation (on red areas) and their Fine Loose Setting Powder. Staying Power Despite this being dewy I find it lasts well on my combination skin even in 100°F heat. It lasts about 8 hours on me but I need to blot about halfway through the day.In a Nutshell...This is a great foundation if you don't need or want much coverage and you like a dewy finish.

I have this in the colour tan, and love this for a basic everyday makeup look - I hate the feeling of heavy foundation especially just during the day and this is just enough colour and coverage to keep me comfortable and even out my skin tone. The shades are really forgiving as they're so sheer so you can afford to go a bit darker to tan up the skin a bit. Also smells amazing! Worth the money as a bottle lasts several months. Best TM I've tried.

Labeled as a foundation, but really it's more of a tinted moisturizer as the coverage is very sheer and it has an SPF of 25. I have it in "Olive" which matches my skintone perfectly - it's very neutral for light to medium skintones, but it has just enough yellow tones to it to counteract any redness and give my skin a more polished look. I love that the color stays true throughout the day even in hot humid weather.

Great for weekends when you don`t need/ want full coverage and great for mature skin well because many say that you look better w/o a very powdery "you can see me wearing fndn look":). ID totally agree:) I only need to even skintone and some redness. Does amazing job especially if I use Dior Radiant Base under to even skintone even more.I need more coverage on my nose and after trial and error Diorskin loose mineral looks good all over and for more coverage on nose-redness I put some Revlon Colourstay mineral fndn instead. f.e. Finally found some usage for that! It looks very naturally glowy so I don`t want to loose that by applying too much powder on top. This beats many Tms that I have tried.

I'm NC20-25 and I use Nars TM in Alaska / powder foundation in Fiji and I'm very yellow toned. I have this in Camel and it is a great color match for me. I do love this product, but must prefice this review by saying that the coverage from this is fairly light. I personally don't mind that. I also really like that it has SPF25. This goes on really well and the packaging is simple and classy.

This is HG status for me. Let me tell you about my skin. It sucks. Seriously. Nothing is worse than dealing with my pores, my super oily skin (give foundations three minutes, poof, they're gone), my red skin and acne prone skin, basically... it's a nightmare waiting to happen. PLUS, every foundation I tried OXIDIZES like you wouldn't believe (oompah loompah anyone?) At the recommendation of the ladies on the MU Board, I tried Becca LSC in Sand (I'm NC 25-30 for reference), and I live near the beach. So I finally, after having thrown out tons of $$ on foundations, gave up and tried this Becca Foundation. It's not a miracle worker. However, this combined with the primer actually even out my skin tone (YAY), is sheer but pigmented enough to even my skin tone out (YAY), doesn't really control oil (the primer does a good job of that though) LOOKS natural (YAY) and most of all... THIS DOESNT OXIDIZE ON ME!!! That's the selling point. What's amazing is when I wear it, I always get complimented about how pretty my skin is. I love it. I love this stuff. Seriously. I can never thank the ladies of the MU board enough for recommending this!

I have been hunting for ages for a sheer foundation to use daily - something that's a little more than a tinted moisturiser but a lot less than other "sheers" in leading brands (e.g. Chanel, Chantecaiile, Nars, Bobby Brown, Barbara Daly, L;Oreal) that I've tried. Having tipped 50, I even bought a book that helps you update your makeup (how sad is that?!) so you don't fall into a time-warp trap. (I'm just at that stage where everyone's needs have to come before mine, so the sensible option to take myself off to the best department store simply doesn't work.)The book recommended a sheer foundation by YSL but happily I remembered a girl's BF and sought counsel of MUA. Here I found Becca, went on line, bought this (in Nude) together with Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal - and I couldn't be happier! Lightly dusted with Barbara Daily ultra sheer loose powder and I have a look that's dewy, never cakes into lines, doesn't even break out into a shine much and stays throughout the day.I don't have perfect skin at all. I have slightly oily skin with the odd spot-scar from teenage years, and a couple of small blotchy bits. But I hate the made up Barbie doll look with a vengeance, and this is just lovely.A big thank you to all those who bothered to review it before me.

I purchased this along with the stick foundation. I'm NC10-15, and got this in sand. This product has a definite smell, it doesn't bother me but I can see it bothering those with more sensitive noses. The coverage of this foundation leaves a lot to be desired for someone wanting medium to full coverage like myself. I'd compare it to a tinted moisturizer, or even a light bb cream. It feels tacky going on the skin, and doesn't really dry. It looks greasy on my face later on in the day, even when set with a powder. I feel it doesn't really do much as far as evening out my skin tone, or making the texture look better. I do like the color match, and wear it under foundation on days I want more coverage. If you have overall clear skin, this might be an HG product for you. But with my freckles and acne scars, it leaves a lot to be desired.
