A Look Behind BECCA Cosmetics

What started with one woman's quest for the "perfect foundation" has developed into the BECCA Cosmetics brand. Founded by Rebecca Morrice Williams, an Australian make-up artist, the line of skin-perfecting products is designed to give all women flawless and radiant skin. The core of the BECCA brand is the "Skin Perfecting Makeup System," a three-step system aimed at correcting, perfecting, and enhancing the face. This system is specialized and personalized in order for each woman to custom select her makeup according to her desired level of coverage and finish. BECCA has become most well-known for their impressive range of foundation and concealer shades; they strive to find exact color matches for every skintone and complexion color.

A little more about the products:

-They are suitable for all skin types and ages

-They contain SPF 20-30 (or higher) and protect against both UVA and UVB rays

-They are made with ingredients that impart moisture to the skin, while firming and softening its texture

-They contain antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidant ingredients

-They are non-comedogenic (won't clog pores)

I have become somewhat intrigued by this brand. I have yet to try out any products in the BECCA line, but I think that will soon have to change. If you are interested in checking out the range (which also includes products for eyes, lips, and cheeks....I've heard through the grapevine that the tints are pretty great!), definitely head over to http://www.beccacosmetics.com/. You can order through the website as well as through a number of other online retailers. Within the US, there are also stores that carry BECCA cosmetics (be sure to refer to the site for further information).

I may be a BECCA newbie, but have any of you had experience with the brand? Are there products that you would recommend? I'm so interested to hear your thoughts!


  1. I haven't used the brand, but it Sounds great! I'm headed over to check all the goods out as we speak. Thanks for sharing!

  2. RW - I'm so glad! Let me know what you like!

  3. Becca was available at Sephora in NYC years ago and since it is no longer available there I have been trying to find a store closer to where I live so that I can test the colors before I purchase again. I have tried the compact concealer and it is "the best" concealer I have ever used and I have tried many of the top department store brands including Bobbi Brown, Georgio Armani, Prescriptives, Lauder, Lancome, MAC etc. etc. I would highly recommend to everyone to try this product,although pricey, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
