BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector is a must-have!

Introducing BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector, a water-based moisturizer with an SPF of 20+ and light-diffusing particles of shimmer that creates instant radiance and vitality and reduces imperfections.

  • Contains ultra-fine mica to reflect light, making the skin appear healthy and glowing
  • The shimmering properties help illuminate darkened patches of the skin and even out skin tone
  • Contains broad spectrum SPF 20+ to protect against 96% of both UVA and UVB rays
  • Contains anti-oxidant vitamins A, B, D, and E to aid in tissue repair, increase collagen renewal and moisture holding capacity, while simultaneously protecting against pollution and free radical damage
  • Contains soothing, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic ingredients
  • Apply as a base over the entire face using Foundation Brush #18, Foundation/Concealer Brush #58, or Multi-Use Brush #59 and add a touch of Compact Concealer to blemishes if required.
  • Set with Fine Loose Finishing Powder for a natural looking glow.
  • Mix with a small amount of Luminous Skin Colour for a radiant complexion.
  • Apply all over the face, then swirl Mineral Powder Foundation on all over the face for a “glow from within” look.
  • Use to highlight cheekbones, brow bones, and temples by dabbing over foundation and powder for an extra-dewey look using your fingers or Extra Small Polishing Brush #55, Small Polishing Brush #56 or Multi-Use Brush #59.
  • For maximum shimmer and radiance, apply over a BECCA Primer and leave skin unpowdered.

Like I said earlier, I’m not much of a foundation person. This product is just for people like me! It’s the perfect lotion if you want your face to glow a little bit – without applying foundation! My face shimmers – NOT sparkles. You can hardly even tell the shimmer is there, your skin just looks glowy. (I know it’s not a word, but I’m using it anyway.)

I like how natural it looks. It doesn’t look cheap – or like I should be heading to a club. It just makes my skin look healthy! You should try it!

PS: It also has this really light, barely-there-scent that just smells amazing!

BECCA’s Stick Foundation rocks my world…

The ultimate skin savior, creating the illusion of flawless skin by evening out skin tone and lightly concealing blemishes. A unique balance between maximum sun protection (SPF 30+) and long lasting wear.

  • The soft, creamy texture allows a totally controllable level of coverage
  • The non-powdery formulation is suitable for most skin types (including ultra-sensitive) and provides sheer to medium, natural looking coverage
  • Doubles as a sheer under-eye concealer
  • Contains broad spectrum SPF 30+ to protect against over 96% of both UVA and UVB rays
  • Contains antioxidant vitamins A, D, and E, which help to increase collagen renewal and the skin’s moisture holding capacity
  • Can be used all over the face (including the under eye area) or only where further coverage is required.
  • Use over Luminous Skin Colour or BECCA Primers and set with Fine Loose Finishing Powder for a water-resistant, long-lasting finish.
  • Use Foundation Brush #18, Foundation/Concealer Brush #58, or Multi-Use Brush #59 for an ultra-sheer, even and quick application.

I think the reason I love this stick foundation so much, is because I’m really NOT a foundation person. I don’t like the feeling of having foundation on all over my face. With this – I can put it on the areas I need to – without having to cover my whole face. I have sun spots right in my t-zone, so this foundation is a perfect fit for me. It comes in a great compact size, so it fits perfectly in my purse!

Love it!!
