I’ve been a huge fan of Becca Cosmetics for well over 2 years now. The first product I purchased, from the high end makeup brand, was the Ever Matte Shine-Proof Foundation. Not only was the shade match on point(I wear the shade Sienna), but I wasn’t the darkest shade (hard to come by even 2 years ago), and the formula was amazing! I became a loyal customer from day one. Since then, I’ve purchased their Complete Complexion Creme (full coverage foundation with a natural finish), their Matte Poreless Primer, Mineral Blush, and of course their Shimmering Skin Perfectors. Becca is a mainstay in my makeup collection.
When Influenster hit your girl up, via email, about the upcoming collaboration with Becca, I jumped at the chance to review their new products. I was lucky enough to receive the very first Becca & Influenster VoxBox and immediately started gagging at its contents. I received the First Light Priming Filter, the Soft Kabuki Brush, and the Soft Light Blurring Powder.
As an oily girl, I’ve often kept my distance from primers that illuminate the face, because my skin does that all by itself. But since this was given to me for review, I went full force and tested the primer on its own. I also used the brush provided to apply the setting powder and went to a vision board party in Boston (hosted by my girl Lisa A La Mode and blogger Actually Ashley). I wore the products for 6 hours before giving my final thoughts on each one. No touch ups of course, because I wanted to see how long my oily skin would remain radiant rather than KFCesque!
The final verdict? I’m down for the idea of an illuminating filter mixed in with my more mattifying primers. I cannot wear the First Light Priming Filter on its own. I was a greasy it with your matte primers or skip it all together. As for the powder…she’s bae. I love the powder so much, ya’all! The brush is cute, I’m here for it. It’s soft enough not to move your foundation but also sturdy enough to properly buff in the powder.
