Beauty Buzz: Becca AquaLuminous Foundation

I've been on a huge foundation kick lately. I feel like there has been a lot of different releases over the past few months and I want to try them all.

I've never been a huge foundation person--some days I skip it altogether, or just go with a trusty powder foundation (I love this one) but lately I just can't shake the feeling of wanting all the foundations!

I've especially enjoyed the trend of water serum foundations. Every brand is releasing their own version of a hydrating, water based, serum like foundation. My favorite so far is the PUR Cosmetics Hydrafluid Water Serum Foundation but another one had caught my eye around the same time.

The only product I've ever tried from Becca are the Shimmering Skin Perfectors
and I love them so much. They are the best highlighters on the market. I've always wanted to try more Becca products and when I saw that the brand was releasing a water based foundation, I immediately wanted to jump on the train.

The Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation is a light weight, buildable formula that feels weightless on the skin and leaves a slight luminous finish.



I never buy high end products on a whim because they're expensive and I don't like to make rash decisions. I always turn to my trusty beauty v-loggers to see what they think of products before I buy. I watched some reviews before purchasing this and all of them were a go so I couldn't wait to buy it.

I chose the shade Light and it's a near perfect match for me. I never have had an issue with choosing foundation shades online so I'm glad this one was no different.



This foundation has a dropper applicator and I really enjoy that aspect of it. The one issue with this applicator, though, is that I can't seem to get enough product out of it. It may just be me and I don't know the proper way to work the dropper (if that makes sense) but it's such a minor con.



I love this foundation and it has quickly become my go-to. It's light to medium coverage and seamlessly melts into the skin. It feels super hydrating and light weight on the skin -- it doesn't feel like anything in my opinion.

I especially like the light luminous finish it leaves on the skin. It's not overpowering which is always appreciated because who wants to look like a disco ball before applying any bronzer, blush, or highlight?

I can't attest to staying power because a lot of things go into that-- primer, skin type, activity. I never pay attention to how long a foundation stays on my skin because in different lighting, my face looks completely different. I should really try to pay more attention to how long my makeup lasts but it's not something that is uber important to me.

I think this is definitely a foundation for dry skin. I do think it is suitable for all skin types because it's not greasy or slippery on the skin. If you do have oily skin, I recommend heading into your local Sephora or Ulta to test it out before buying.

All in all, I am obsessed with this foundation and it's my go-to every day foundation. It has really turned me onto Becca's complexion products and I'm excited to try more. I'm really curious about the Becca Backlight Priming Filter because everyone raves about it and I think my next Becca purchase will be the Best of Becca kit from Ulta so I can try the primer & one of their blushes.

What is your current favorite foundation?
