Review: Becca Pressed Powder and Brow Shaping Gel

Saturday, January 25, 2014
I bought a couple of Becca items from Fragrance Direct a couple of weeks ago and I have been loving them ever since. I had no idea that Fragrance Direct had started to stock Becca, until a lucky browse on their site - I bought the Becca Fine Pressed Powder and the Brow Shaping Gel, both of which were heavily discounted! This is not a sponsored post, both products were bought with my own money. 
Becca Fine Pressed Powder (Bisque, £5.99): Becca is quite a high end brand with this pressed powder retailing at about £30 so I was very shocked (and very happy) to see this powder on sale on Fragrance Direct for only £5.99. When I saw the price I thought all of the shades would be very dark but no, there was a very light shade called 'Bisque' in stock. The shade is perfect for my very pale snow white skin tone. As the name suggests the powder is very fine, it feels weightless on the skin and it does not look caky or heavy. I have been using this product as a setting powder and I am very happy with the result. I have dry skin and this powder doesn't emphasise dryness on me and it gives very light coverage while setting the makeup and slightly mattifying the t-zone. Also I LOVE the packaging and mirror. ★★★★☆ 4/5.

Becca Brow Shaping Gel (£3.99): I think I paid just under £4 for this product, it is sadly not on the website anymore. I also love the packaging of this product, it is so sleek and travel friendly. Now brows, my brows are fairly thick and the can be quite unruly. I have to use brow gel in them everyday otherwise they looks horrendous! I have tried quite a few brow gels and my favourite one so far is the Tweezerman Brow Mousse which I love. This brow gel is a good second, it holds the brows fairly well, it is clear and it is very quick and easy to use. ★★★★☆ 4/5.
