I just discovered this fantastic foundation at Sephora a couple of weeks ago. I was looking for something that wouldn't be too heavy, but would do a great job in illuminating my skin and giving me a pretty glow for the spring & summer. Not only did I get what I wanted, but I got the extra benefit of more moisture. I had no idea my skin was needing something more moisturizing in a foundation. I'm 42 years old and I guess, over the years, my skin has changed drastically. I'd been using mineral makeup for years, but now, I'm a total convert. I adore this foundation.

In addition, my skin is fairly pale & pinkish (my skin burns, never tans), but I've been using self-tanner. I decided to go with the Beige color. Normally, foundations that are Beige are really dark on me. This one is NOT. It's a perfect color for my skin. It blends beautifully, especially with my self-tanner. When fall/winter rolls around, I'll probably go a shade lighter, but for now, this is just right. I'm in love.

The picture below is me wearing the foundation and some blush...forgive the fact I'm not wearing any lipstick, but it gives you a good idea of the shade on a fair-skinned gal.

I want to love this foundation so much but I just don't. First off I prefer a higher coverage and this is light to medium (bough buildable) so that was my own fault. It is also way, way, way too luminous.

Glowing skin is nice but this just looks straight up oil slick. I have combo skin so my nose gets oily and this slides right off it no matter what I do to prime or set it.

This also applies horridly. No matter how I try to apply it beauty blender, brush, fingers, or a combination it is still always streaky. I can not smooth this foundation out what so ever.

Lastly the packing is no good. It's really cute and feels nice but my cap is constantly sticking so the button won't pop so I can't pull liquid up into the "syringe". When you pay $44 for a product you expect the applicator to at least work!

This is my first time using Becca and it isn't a positive experience. I will give them a chance with something else but definitely not with another foundation.

I cannot say enough good things about this foundation. It has knocked my beloved Too Faced Born This Way foundation out of first place and it is now my new holy grail. The shade matches my skin tone amazingly, and I haven't had an issues with it oxidizing on me. I have oily skin in my T zone area and I thought at first this might not work for me because of that but I was wrong. As long as I set my Tzone with powder I am good to go. It really does leave the skin looking beautiful and glowing. It is light to medium coverage and it builds up very nicely without looking cakey. It does not accentuate or settle into my pores or fine lines either. I haven't tried applying this with a brush because I really love the way it looks when I use my beauty blender to apply it. I highly recommend this foundation if you are look for a new lighter coverage foundation that will make your skin look very radiant!

1 word: OBSESSED! I'm kinda new in the beauty industry ( like a MUA level) and I used to have a MAC foundation that made my skin look cakey. NOTCOOL so one day I asked a girl at Sephora about a light foundation and she suggested BECCA AQUA LUMINOUS, I asked for a sample because I really liked the way it felt on my skin.
The next day I applied it ( tan tone) and I needed a few drops, it's so pigmented and so light, is you want your makeup to look natural, you might love this too, I have mixed skin and before applying it I do my beauty ritual: I wash my face, then my day cream, poreless primer and THEN my foundation. It makes a big difference so yes, I love love this foundation and the $44usd totally with it :)

Like it but don't love it. I like this foundation; especially for summer because it looks natural and dewy (which I dig.) I like that they offer many yellow based shades (instead of pink) which is harder to find when searching for good foundations for fair skin. I definitely would NOT recommend for people with oily skin because it creates a VERY dewy finish which can accentuate pores and make your skin look super greasy. I probably will not purchase again, simply because I have combination skin and finds that it slides off my face throughout the day and the coverage does not last as I would like it to. But if you have normal to dry skin, it is worth a try!

CALLING ALL PALE GIRLS!
This is my HG foundation! I am pale with pink undertones and dry skin! I have tried covergirl which leaves me dry and wanting to scratch my face off and tarte which leaves me looking jaundice. But i have FINALLY found the one! This is incredible! It blends like a dream with my beauty blender and keeps my face hydrated all day! It feels lightweight but has a nice medium coverage that is buildable! It leaves you with a beautiful dewy finish and it feels like your fave can breathe! It's $44 here in America so I would recommend asking for a sample from the makeup counter if you're unsure! But I love this stuff to the moon and back!

I really wanted to like this foundation but at the end of the day it fails in some major ways. I was told by the rep at Sephora that this foundation would help with my ever changing skin tone. It matches my color wonderfully but it leaves my skin oily-ish. The glitter makes me seem like some kind of twilight character and I have creases. I've never really experienced these things before. I'm no make up expert but I prefer a natural look and this product just doesn't deliver. As a side note I find the syringe delivery to be messy and somewhat complicated. *the use of setting spray didn't help one bit*

I am obsessed with this foundation!! As someone with extremely dry skin I have tried out many foundations before and this is by far my favorite! I keeps my skin hydrated which is a must for me! It gives you a undertone glow that pairs great with their highlighters. Also the coverage is nice but it looks natural on the skin. The only con I will say is that this foundation doesn't have a super light shade so if you have a very light complexion this might not work for you. I am fair skinned in the winter but never am the lightest shade in a foundation but with this line I match the lightest option.

Becca's Aqua Luminous Foundation is an amazing foundation, especially for normal to dry skin. It definitely gives you a dewy, glowy look that many people with oily skin often want to avoid (it might make you look downright greasy), but it probably won't make you oily. It is a sheer, serum-like foundation, and provides similar coverage as Urban Decay Naked Skin, but with a much more luminous, yet natural, finish. It has a dropper bottle and I think a pump bottle would be better, but that's only a matter of preference. I do wish there were more shades, however, as I'm between tan and warm honey.

Not interested in the caked-on feeling of foundation? Neither are we. BECCA's formula is lightweight and airy, so skin looks naturally smooth without a heavyweight product to fill in the lines. The applicator dropper makes portion control easy; just twist the cap fully off and press the top button to dispense the liquid onto clean fingers, the back of your hand, or a blending sponge. We love a product that gives us options, so if you're looking to achieve the no-makeup-makeup look, just one application will do, but the formula is buildable for those looking for medium to full coverage.

How are the Becca foundations? I've really been wanting to try them but I'm skeptical. I have combination skin and I hate foundations that look patchy. Is this a good one?
