There are 8 shades in the foundation available — Shell, Cashmere, Nude, Noisette, Tan, Amber, Tobacco and Mink.  Sephora sells 20 shades, so their were some gaps in there.  I purchased Cashmere, but it is a bit dark for me.  It also has a drier texture.If I blend it really well, it works.  I might save it for summer time. But I am a bit disappointed in it.

First Light Priming Filter claims to help brighten the skin and create a canvas for long-lasting makeup wear. It has almost a watery texture, and it goes a little bit of a glow under make up. I think it’s OK and I will keep trying it.

Under Eye Brightening Corrector is a full-coverage creme that color-corrects the appearance of under-eye darkness. It is infused with ultra-fine, light-reflecting illuminators. I like this a lot. It’s just the right shade to go under my eye, it’s a little bit lighter than my skin tone. It helps cover my dark circles and give us a bit of a glow.

The Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter is in the best-selling Opal shade. The creamy, luminizing powder veils skin in a soft glow to amplify natural-looking radiance. I think this is so gorgeous! I’ve been wanting a BECCA highlighter since last fall’s BoxyCharm. I was sure I was going to get the powder highlighter but I ended up getting the liquid one. And it’s just sitting there not being used! So, I am so happy that I have the powder and I love how shimmery it is!

Champagne Cocktail Lipgloss is a luxurious lip gloss that gives the perfect kiss of light and shine to your lips. I didn’t think anything about this when I purchased it, but I really think it’s an amazing lipgloss! It is light and not sticky at all. Plus it gives the lips a little color and shimmer.

Here are swatches of the products:

Primer, foundation in Cashmere, the undereye corrector, highlighter in Opal and the lip gloss in Sparkling Rose.

I can see myself purchasing the highlighter and lip gloss in other shades.  I might repurchase the under eye corrector, but probably not the primer and foundation.  Which is sad, because I bought the set because I need a new foundation!

  1. I have 4 of the pressed powder highlighters (Opal, Moonstone, Champagne Pop & Rose Gold) & 3 liquid (the aforementioned minus Champagne Pop). I love them. They just melt into the skin and don’t look glittery.

    I also love the ever-matte primer. I get the travel size as I only use it in my oily areas (T-zone), so the smaller version lasts me close to 6 months.

  2. I’ve never tried anything from BECCA but I’ve heard good things and been tempted in the past. I love these sorts of kits where you can try a range of products that go together, it can be a bit overwhelming having to choose for yourself when you’re new to a brand. The under eye concealer looks good and I really like the colour of the highlighter. It’s a pity the foundation was disappointing though.
