Only a few days ago now, I mentioned that Becca was one of the brands that really impressed me in 2015. It was the year that my Becca collection really grew and the more that I tried, the more in love I fell with the brand. If there’s one thing that Becca does perfectly, it’s bring the glow. Their base products, their cheek products – they’re all designed to give that perfect luminosity to the skin and I am 100% on board. So now it’s time to sit down and give my thoughts on my whole collection.
I’ve got a post ready to go later in the month with a little more info (and maybe even a budget alternative) on this new addition to my primer collection but oh my, if it’s a glowy primer you want, definitely find a way to try this one out. It adds a beautiful and subtle luminosity to the skin and does a great job of prepping for my base by really improving the texture of my skin.

This will be launching in the US in the next couple of days and will hopefully be on Australian shores not long after. Again, this stuff is glowy, luminous, dewy skin in a bottle. I’ve only had a few days to trial it so I’ll definitely try to stick up a post later when I’ve tested it a little more but so far, the shade range I’m not crazy about but the formula? That’s a keeper. It’s glowy and dewy but not oily and although it seems to transfer a little, it stays put fairly well throughout the day.
Although I’m a big fan of the powder highlighters from Becca, I really must remember to pull this one out a little more. Moonstone is a beautiful, light golden shade which looks beautiful when mixed with a slightly more mattified base or just blended into the cheekbones and high points of the face.
I’ve heard awesome things about this brush and I’m definitely not disappointed. Becca say it can be used with liquids, powders and creams but personally I’ve been enjoying this with my bronzer, sculpting out my cheekbones and blending it into my temples a little bit. It’s large and dense enough to really seamlessly blend but it’s still got enough precision to make it worth your while.
My initial review of this one already made my feelings for this product clear and my love hasn’t let up – I’ve been using this beauty constantly since it arrived and I can’t get enough. It beautifully conceals any darkness or discolouration under the eyes, prevents creasing and really brightens up the area.

This little pot of joy is meant to be one of Becca’s Beach Tints mixed in with one of their Shimmering Skin Perfectors. It’s a soft, lightweight mousse-y consistency that blends really nicely into the skin without going cakey and adds a bit of glow to go along with the colour. Lychee/Opal is a beautiful peachy pink.
The blush that actually made it into my 2015 Favourites, that’s how much I love it. It’s the perfect golden pink (I didn’t actually realise how similar it was to the Shimmer Souffle until swatching them for this post) but the other shades in the range are already calling my name. I can’t quite put my finger on what makes this formula so great but I think it’s just how effortless it is, you don’t need much for a subtle glow to your cheeks.
Arguably the most notable product in Becca’s lineup – everyone raves about the Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed formula and for good reason. The powder tends to kick up quite a bit of excess but a quick tap of the brush before applying it to the cheekbones is all you need for perfectly glowing cheekbones. I went into more detail on the pair of shades here, if you’re particularly interested.

Another recent Becca pickup, the look of this dual brow tint and brow highlight intrigued me from when I first spotted it online. I wasn’t expecting the tint to be as soft and mousse-y as it is but it actually works better than expected. I normally go in with a bit of the product on a small angled brow/eyeliner brush and work in small brush strokes and I really do love the result – it provides definition and a great amount of tint without looking overdone or drawn on. The brow highlight is subtle and needs to be lightly patted in to actually show up on the skin, if I’m too excited while blending it tends to disappear.
The very first Becca product I owned, I can remember having never heard of the brand when this came as a freebie with a magazine. This was before I’d gotten into makeup so my routine was a BB Cream, this across my eyelids and a bit of mascara for a while there. It’s a gorgeous, barely there champagne shade that just adds a little something to the eyelids but nowadays, I hardly remember to reach for it.
Becca have the no fuss eyeshadow down, too. The Ombre Nudes palette is made up of simple, everyday matte neutrals – nothing too out there but surprisingly necessary, I’ve been reaching for this a lot on days where I don’t have time to really think about what to do – a bit of definition in the crease and a dusting all over the lid and I’m looking polished and ready to go. Some brands really struggle with making matte shadows that actually blend well but Becca have, once again, exceeded expectations.

That was definitely a bit of a love fest but it’s true, Becca’s products have really stood out to me lately – it’s particularly obvious with how much they pop up in my MOTDs on Instagram. Becca really seem to know their aesthetic and they take the time to release awesome products every single time. Recommendations of new products to buy are more than welcome in the comments below…
