Product Review; "Becca Foundation Stick"
Australian makeup artist Rebecca Morris Williams was on a pursuit for what she considered to be the "perfect foundation" that would not only provide seamless coverage but be ideal for masking blemishes.
If you've ever struggled with acne, you know the surface can be difficult to cover and maintain because the surface is so taut and "smooth". Postules don't have much grip for product and they usually need touching up throughout the day, but the texture of Becca Foundation Stick is very ideal for this purpose.
It has a very dense feel to it that seems a bit dry due to rice starch extract, but blends with a bit of effort thanks to a large amount of Carnauba Wax that grabs skin, holds tight and forms to shape as it warms to body temperature. The blend has a unique grab to skin that refuses to melt under hot set lights or blazing sun, and needs very little powder to set and absolutely no need for touching up.
Though the formula is very nice, I'm finding that it can feel a little heavy if not blended properly all around the face. But while I'm not a fan of the product for all-over coverage, I do always keep it on hand for blemishes. I may not consider it "the perfect foundation", but when it comes to blemishes, I'd be willing to consider it "the perfect concealer".
