For my first high end foundation...

By Heygurl

from MI

Pros

  • Blends Well
  • Good Pigmentation
  • Long-Lasting
  • Matte Finish

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Acne-Prone or Oily Skin
    • Full Coverage

    Comments about BECCA Ultimate Coverage Foundation:

    I've always used drugstore foundation, but I wanted to try something high-end to see if it made a difference to my very oily/combination skin. This foundation definitely makes a difference! It's a thicker formula, so take your time to blend it in. My best advice to anyone would be that skin care and preparation before foundation go a long way. Don't just slather a layer on and think you're going to be good for the rest of the day! I have very oily skin, so I do notice a little bit of breakdown towards the late afternoon/evening, but I just blot and touch up with concealer (like everyone who truly has oily skin knows how to do). Better than drugstore? YES, totally. The only real criticism I have is that this foundation isn't waterproof. Maybe brush your teeth before applying, or you might go to work with beautiful cheeks and a red chin.

    Comments about BECCA Ultimate Coverage Foundation:

    I got this awhile (last summer) and I've been struggling with it. I figured out that I need a more hydrating base to make it less patchy so I think one of the comments below said that you need to let your skincare sit for awhile before you apply this foundation and I fully agree. The foundation does go well over sunscreen which is a huge plus for me and it looks nice in photos but its so heavy. I think this is more medium coverage than full because it doesn't always cover up breakouts. IF you can, try a sample of this.
    I also had a difficult time blending this out but it got better with time? I now blend it out with my Eco Tools sponge and its not patchy. For how finicky it is, I wouldn't recommend to buy it unless you really want to. This foundation is very pricey for what it is so if you do decide to get it, buy it with a coupon.

        Comments about BECCA Ultimate Coverage Foundation:

        This is probably the worst foundation I have ever purchased...and I have purchased A LOT of foundations. Brace yourself, this is a long review.
        I went into the store like I usually do and asked for a really good full coverage foundation because no one EVER gives you the same answer. I was taken over to the BECCA section and I let the lady apply the foundation and I must admit, I was very impressed with the foundation...at that time! I bought it and a BECCA primer and started using them with my daily skin care routine the very next day. After day one, I noticed a small patch of bumps on my forehead. Keep in mind I have REALLY CLEAR SKIN. I thought it may have been from PMS but I was so wrong. Next day, more bumps..Next day, even more bumps. My entire forehead was COVERED like a rash. I stopped using the BECCA primer and continued the foundation because I figured the new primer would be too much for my skin. Next day, my face looked like I had gotten a chemical peal and it looked burned. Let me just say, THANK GOD FOR WITCH HAZEL! I immediately took a few days off from makeup and decided to try just the foundation one more time. And there came the bumps. The breakouts aren't the only bad thing for me to say about this though. Not only did it almost ruin my skin, after a few hours of wearing the foundation, it was splotchy and patchy and looked CHEAP. Crazy that the "cheap" foundations worked so much better than this. This is also very thick and heavy. Sorry to be such a negative Nancy, but this is just my experience.

            Comments about BECCA Ultimate Coverage Foundation:

            Went into a store and asked for help for trying something different than my usual- looked fairly decent when the lady applied it. Tried it in my usual routine the next day- very drying on my skin, which I hadn't run into with my previous foundation. I tried switching between primers I had at home and that didn't help either- and the coverage was patchy and what did stick wore off in a couple hours. I wouldn't advise getting this. I've had mine for a few days and plan on getting something different tomorrow.

            I'm a woman of color and my finding yellow undertones is hard. There were a lot of warmer shades in this line. Becca has my summer shade (not fall / spring / winter sadly). Anyways I have lots of scars & dark marks. This stuff covered it right up ! Love it ! I don't like that you can't see how much you have left though. Great for all skin types. I'm oily but this was matte but not too matte. My shade was amber .

              Comments about BECCA Ultimate Coverage Foundation:

              Huge disappointment! I love a good full coverage foundation and have found a few that I love.. I had expected this one to join that crew but instead this is one of the worst foundations I've ever purchased! It was super thick, which isn't really the issue, it took forever to get a wearable blend out of it and I tried applying it every way I know. There were patches where the foundation refused to Cover, it stayed tacky and never melted into the skin. It wore like a mask and felt like one to! I'm not opposed to layering makeup or wearing quite a bit but the key is to make it look and feel as natural as possible and this was the opposite. Every time I wear it it's so uncomfortable I can't wait to get it off. And because it's so tacky my powders look patchy over it (and they are all high end products as well). I hate being so negative but all brands have misses and for me this is definitely one of them! People rave about this foundation but I can not find a way to make it wearable. If you like a thick foundation that wears heavy and tacky then you'll love this. And personally I think the shade range is poor. All the foundations seem to have a yellow or pink undertone or at least the ones ulta carries in my shade range. Best advice.. look at MAC, Lancome or Estee!

                I like to try out different brands and foundations and was excited for this one. But I found that it wasn't long wearing and it wasn't as full coverage as what I had expected. By the end of the work day the coverage was nearly sheer. There are drug store brands that hold up better. If your looking for good long lasting full coverage in this price range check out estee or MAC.
