Comments about BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation:

After telling a sales associate that I travel a lot, she suggested this foundation. It's horrendous. The container must be kept upright or it spills everywhere. You wouldn't even be able to keep this in a drawer or a make up bag, forget about traveling with it. Now I've spent a ridiculous amount of money to coat all of my toiletries with this. It's a nightmare. I'll never shop this brand or Ulta again.

      Comments about BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation:

      I read several reviews and had to test the product myself! After 2 weeks (1 week of using a sponge and 1week of using a foundation blender brush), l certainly agree with the reviews, blender brush is the best for applying the product! In using the sponge majority of the product adhered to the sponge instead of my face (very light coating if that's what your attempting). Using the brush blended it smoothly and evenly. (View attached photo). I'm 55 and this product made my skin look dewy and youthful! I have combination skin and would definitely recommend this product. Shade used was "medium"

      Comments about BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation:

      This is my first high end foundation. I have never had a real foundation before, soo happy I got this one. It smells clean, great coverage. Stays a long time, skin glowy, not to shiny. You need only 2 pumps for medium to less coverage. Very buildable as well. I don't like the pump at all, sometimes it doesn't seem to work properly. I wI'll definately repurchase! I do recommend you try your shades on in store before buying. The foundation in to the bottle will look a tad different once actually applied to your face. Wide range of colors!

      One of the worst foundations I've tried

      Comments about BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation:

      I was so excited when I swatched this in the store, but it's terrible and not worth the cost at all.
      It has a nice,light,watery feeling and light coverage. I tried applying it with a Sigma F80 (not a fan of the brush anyway) and Beauty Blender and it caked on and kept coming off.

      I liked the luminous finish, where it wasn't cakey, but overall it looked very bad.

      I wore it for only a few hours(4-5) and it began rubbing off. I got a hair stuck to my nose, tried to lightly pull it off, and ALL the foundation on my nose came off. Sorry fellow humans, you can't scratch any itches, blow your nose,or pick off a fuzzy with this. I don't even have oily skin; I have very dry skin.For the price I had expected more.
      Also, the shade selection is very small, and odd. I am an NW15-20, maybe even 25 in some Mac products, and I matched "porcelain", the "fairest" shade....what? On Becca's site the bottle looks like almost stark white-it isn't.
      Fair was too yellow/orange, and Light was simply too dark. I'm lucky I'm not a pale girl because I'd never find a foundation match. -_-
      For a higher end foundation, an NW15-20 shouldn't be matching your lightest shade. Unfortunately, the shades are all "neutral"(AKA yellow) except for porcelain which was a little pink-neutral. Still,it showed up yellow on my face.

      It didn't break me out or irritate my skin, and my skin actually looked pretty nice after I took it off, but I buy foundation to look good while I'm wearing it..

      Additionally, the packaging sucks...Becca, what were you thinking???? The dropper is so messy, hardly picks up any product (you twist the cap off, and the middle of the cap pops up-you pull the dropper out and press the little button and it dispenses the foundation), and it just ends up all over the inside of the dropper/lid part. It's terribly messy.

      Overall, this was the absolute worst foundation I've ever tried. I couldn't even get it to set with a powder.
      Unfortunately I will have to return it.

      I liked this when I first applied it, but as the day went on it became wayyyy to shiny for me. I have combination skin (oily t zone) and powdering somewhat helped, but it just wasn't for me. I like a luminous / hydrated look, but it just made me look greasy. Over all it has a beautiful natural look, so I would definitely recommend it to someone with dry / normal skin. I'd steer clear if you're combo / oily though :)

      I have purchased this product many times before and LOVE it, but I don't feel this bottle was full. It has a glass dropper to retrieve the foundation from the bottle ans it doesn't even register to a third of the dropper when put into the bottle. As I said I love this foundation, but it's not inexpensive and if it's not the correct amount in the bottle that's a real problem.

        If I use my Laura mercier translucent powder on top of this foundation will it mattify the foundation? I don't want it to make it a matte looking foundation cause I love how glowy it is but a powder keeps it in place throughout the day.

          Hi BECCA Beauty!

          if you are looking to help set this foundation while keeping its luminosity, then I recommend setting only the areas lightly with powder where you tend to get oily, including the t-zone.

      • Q:

        I have been using Kat Von D's Ink foundation they color matched me medium 52 but the make up had been looking very white on me. I have very oily skin on my T- zone and have gotten a few brown spots and some acne marks and huges pores on my nose which I've grown to be self conscious about so I need the full coverage but don't like the caky feel. I also work in a very hot and greasy atmosphere. A consultant referred me to this Becca product in a Beige. Should this product work well and give me my ideal beautiful coverage?

If you are looking for a foundation that will help give you nice coverage and help give a matte and smooth finish, I actually recommend you try our Ever Matte Shine Proof Foundation. This is a long wearing foundation that minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines, and creates a lasting soft-focus effect.

          Hello BECCA Beauty! We do not recommend using a beauty blender with the Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation due to the very liquid formula. it will get soaked up into the sponge and cause possible waste of product. We recommend using a foundation brush for best application.
