My shade is 220 medium warm peach. This foundation claims to have a matte finish and it actually does what it says. It’s more for people with oily skin, because its matte so it helps control the oils and you won’t have to touch up throughout the day as much. If you have dry patches on your skin it tends to cling onto those spots so it’s a good idea to moisturize before the foundation. You also don’t even have to set your foundation with powder because of how matte it is. It’s a really runny foundation so you have to work with it fast so you don’t have dry patches. Another plus is that it has a pump so it makes the application process so much easier, but since it’s a really runny foundation it is best to apply it with a sponge so you don’t have brush strokes that way the foundation will be looking it best.
Alkaline is medium-dark, reddish plum with subtle, cool undertones and a mostly matte finish. It had medium, buildable pigmentation (up to mostly opaque) that applied evenly on the lash line and did not skip. The pencil was smooth and velvety going on, but it had a little more waxiness compared to Torch, which might have been why it wasn’t as pigmented from the start.
The palette was good overall, not perfect but a solid addition to the Naked range, and I suspect that for those who normally use primer, some of the issues I experienced would be resolved. The shimmers felt a little drier but thinner than the average shimmer eyeshadow from Urban Decay, while the mattes were dry but fairly pigmented, buildable, and blendable. It did not have the same luxurious, creamy consistency of the brand’s best mattes but much more pigmented with more substantial texture than the mattes in the Naked Smoky palette.
Tattoo liner is satin (semi matte - semi glossy) finish. The formula is highly pigmented. You really don't need to go over one line again and again to intensify the pigmentation. For me this eyeliner combines the perfection of a brush, ease of a felt tip and color payoff of a liquid eyeliner.
the tattoo eyeliner is a winner in my books because of a few basic differences in their construction. The brush tip of tattoo eyeliner is longer and thicker than the Maybelline one which reduces the number of strokes you need for the application and hence reducing the time required for application. It is a lot easier to achieve a perfect wing with the tattoo eyeliner than with the Maybelline one.
I have medium skin and this bronzer looks so nice, it is very neutral and not at all orange. The blush is beautiful, pretty pigmented but also blendable. And the 2 highlighters are bomb. I can pull of the lightest one on my cheekbones and high points. I kind of feel like the other one is dark for me but i still use it as blush topper. BeccaxJaclynHill is more to champagne gold. BeccaxChrissy is more to rose gold.
The reformulation brings along an Anti-Fatigue Healthy Mix Concealer that is suitable for your undereyes. Similarly, it also has the same vitamins blend to help brighten up the undereye area. The consistency is much more liquidy compared to the foundation and it feels a lot lighter on the skin too.
I rarely liking drugstore foundations but i love this foundation. It doesn't break me out and cling to dry patches. I would say the finish is semi matte, dewy (but not oily) coverage is sheer to medium, just like your skin but better. I think it would be perfect for someone who looking for natural/flawless look.
Like other Becca palettes, the texture is noticeably drier and looser in the pan for the highlighters, compared to the standalone formula, which is something I notice more by feel and initial application, but it doesn’t seem to change the color, tone, or the way the product looks applied and blended on the skin (this is my only hesitation about the palette). Worth noting, Becca called out the Mineral Blushes as matte, but their interpretation of matte is more like true satin–there is a sheen to the skin but is not overly shimmery, and secondly, Becca seems to market their blushes as more buildable/medium in coverage but all three are very pigmented–this is, as a result, reflected in the rating but if you like your blushes pigmented, you should mentally bump up the ratings.
Overall, it is a nice cheek palette, though it leans very warm and coral-toned with three of five having higher-sheen finishes so it’ll be best for those who like their golds and pink-corals and more of a metallic finish than a subtle highlight. I think making either Rose Spritz or Pamplemousse more of a cooler-toned shade would have helped make the palette more versatile (maybe a mauve or plum). The packaging is heft, very solid, and some might even find it a little too heavy to carry in an everyday bag. It clicks closed, and the lid stays up, so it is usable–probably some of the nicest cheek/face palette packaging released in awhile. For me, personally, it’s very easy to wear on my coloring, and as they’re all blendable, they are easy to use as well. I could definitely see traveling with this one.
PROS: Blendable,creamy texture n fragrancefree formula. Medium to full coverage,hides discolorations n blemishes. Longwearing powder finish.
CONS: Can be very challenging to apply n blend. Also can be prone to creasing into fine lines and wrinkles.
It is best for oily to combination skin due to its matte finish. However, those with super oily skin may find this can pool into enlarged pores if not blended well. This foundation offers a wide range of shade options, suited for those with fair skin to deep skin tones. If you’re considering this formula, be sure to get an in-store color match.
Don't expect this highlighter will be pigmented as mary lou manizer or becca champagne pop. It's just sheer and smooth on the skin. I prefer to apply it with wet brush or damp beauty blender. Euphoric shade is for neutral look and suitable for medium skin tone. Maybe will get another gold champagne shade after this.
My HG! Super pigmented! #defineyourlight
