I was delighted to see Becca return to Sephora stores in 2012. I have always wanted to try the brand but was hesitant ordering products sight unseen . The set includes the following products :
|Becca resurfacing primer . Opal shimmering skin perfector , eye tint in baroque and beach tint in grapefruit .|
Resurfacing Primer ( full size ) : This is a a white cream with a slight silicone feel to it and sinks in to the skin upon application . I found the primer to be quite hydrating and it helped smooth out any imperfections/pores . It kept my makeup on for 8 - 9 hours and my skin never felt dry or parched .
Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal ( sample size ) : is a beautiful beige with gold pearl . It sheers out beautifully and provides a luminescent highlight to the skin . I love wearing this during the day because there is no disconcernable shimmer in direct sunlight . Mixing this with a foundation is another way to add luminosity to the skin . My mom has been wearing it as a highlight as well and the Shimmering Skin Perfector does not settle in pores or fine lines .
Eye Tint in Baroque ( full size ) : is a water proof sheer cream shadow . Baroque is a lovely mushroom taupe with a golden sheen . The eye tint lasted 5 hours on my eye lids without primer and 8-9 hours on top of one . I find this perfect for a soft shimmery wash of color on the eyes . It makes quite a lovely eyeshadow base as well because powder shadows blend seamlessly on top of it . Upon inital application the tint feels slightly wet but dries down to soft cream finish on the eyes .
Beach Tint in Grapefruit ( full size ) : is a waterproof multipurose product that can be used on lips and cheeks . Grapefruit in particular is a lovely peachy pink tint that dries down to a soft matte finish on my lips . I did use it as a blush and found it easy to blend on top of foundation . As far as wear is concerned , it lasted 5 hours on my cheeks and 2-3 hours on my lips .
The Ultimate Mascara( full size ) : has a medium sized plastic wand and the color included in this kit is black . I found this to be a good day time mascara . It provides a good amount of length but not enough volume . I prefer volumizing mascaras because I have pretty long lashes naturally . I found it easy to remove and non irritating .
Overall , I think the set is a wonderful introduction to the brand and a phenomenal deal for $ 58 . I personally loved all the items except the mascara but if you like a natural lash look then definitely give it try . I will definitely be looking into their foundation , blushes and lip tints .
