Becca Ultimate Coverage Creme Concealer Review



I bought this concealer because I had seen so many people talking about it on the likes of YouTube and on various beauty blogs, so I really wanted to get my hands on it and try it for myself. In the end, I felt like I was the only beauty blogger out there that hadn’t seemed to try it, so while I was putting a little Space NK order in to stock up on my normal Diptyque candles I thought that I may as well add it to my basket and finally get around to checking it out. I have to admit that since I have been using it, I have absolutely loved it and I find myself reaching for it so often and more than any other concealer in my collection.

By now if you have followed my blog for a while you will know that I am a lover of all products that are full coverage. I don’t like sheer coverage, I just think go big or go home. If I wanted sheer coverage I just wouldn’t bother wearing makeup at all. So, when I saw the words Ultimate Coverage I was automatically like… gimme gimme gimme. When I want a really full coverage for my under eyes I have been using the MAC Full Coverage Foundation in a lighter highlighting shade, so I thought that this concealer would be the perfect replacement to using a foundation underneath my eyes.

When I first got this Becca Ultimate Cover Cream Concealer delivered I didn’t want to use it because it looked so stunning in the little pot. When it was untouched in the pot it just looked so creamy and pretty, so much so that I put off using it for a long time. I am the same when I get a brand-new Anastasia Brow Pomade, it just looks so nice and smooth that I don’t want to ruin it. When I finally decided to stop been silly about it and started to use it I absolutely loved it from the word go. I used my Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate brush to apply it and it went on like a dream. It is so creamy and just glides smoothly over the skin.

When I put the product on my skin before blending it I have to say that I was quite shocked at how much product I had dug out from the pot. Straight away I thought that I must have used far too much, but when I took my Beauty Blender and blended the product out it looked perfect, so I didn’t think that I had used too much. I have used this product many times since and made a conscious effort to try and use less product, but I don’t feel like I get the same bright and perfected highlight as I initially did.
 
I will say that when I do reach for this product, my skin has never looked so flawless. I find that not only does it conceal, it also blurs on the skin and makes my skin look so smooth. When I set this Becca Concealer with a translucent powder I don’t see any creasing or settling into fine lines and it locks it into place all day long. With regards to the finish, I think that this is the nicest concealer that I have ever owned and that is why I love reaching for it so much.

As much as I love this concealer I really can’t see the pot of this concealer lasting that long. It is super pigmented but if you like to highlight with your concealer you will fly through this stuff. Don’t get me wrong though I am in love with it, but I do try to make a conscious effort to reach for something else, just because I am aware of how quickly I am burning my way down the pot. I genuinely really love this product and I have never used a concealer that is as creamy or blendable the way that this Becca Ultimate Coverage Concealer is.  It glides on so easily, is nice and pigmented and makes the skin look like porcelain.

If you are a fun of a full coverage concealer I would highly recommend this Becca Concealer. As normal with all of my posts I will leave a link down below to where you can find it. Also, make sure to leave me a comment and let me know if you have tried this foundation and tell me what you thought about it!

  3. This sounds lovely, but as I SLAP my concealer on to highlight I think I'd get through it way too fast haha! Maybe if they bring out a supersize version then I could invest :)

  4. Such a useful review as always Danielle, plus I love your go big or go home ethos! I'm really heavy handed with concealer so I feel I would get through this pretty damn quickly, which is a shame as it sounds nice! I'll be interested to hear how long it lasts you!

  5. I have never tried any other concealers apart from the Collection one everyone loves! I am interesting in splurging on some new products tho, especially from the Becca brand!

  6. It looks so pretty! I really don't like concealers that are packaged this way though, I prefer wand applicators. I wish it was more pigmented as I could see myself burning through this pretty quick, thank you for sharing. Great review as always, hope you have a lovely weekend xxx
