Becca Light Shifting Brightening Concealer - worth the hype?

Becca Light Shifting Brightening Concealer - worth the hype?

Becca is a brand that is synonymous with glowing skin - their highlighters are unrivalled in terms of texture and pigmentation. I've tried (and loved) their primers and a foundation so it made sense that I would want to try their latest release, Becca Light Shifting Brightening Concealer. But, is it worth the hype?

The main reason I was drawn to this concealer was the description of it being formulated with hyaluronic acid (perfect for my dry under eye area) plus having an ultra light formula and offering a radiant finish - sounds exactly like my kind of concealer! 

I personally don't need very high coverage in my under eye area - yes, I do have dark circles but they don't bother me enough to wear anything heavy duty. I'm not interested in looking flawless or perfect - just a fresher/less tired version of me. Plus I really am not a fan of the very bright/full coverage under eye look that is seen a lot on Instagram (but each to their own).

The packaging is pretty sleek with the Becca logo on the side and I like that there is a transparent area so that I can see when it's running low. It has a sponge doe-foot applicator, which I understand may not be to everyone's taste for hygiene reasons but I personally don't mind as only I will be using it. Rather than a click, product is dispensed via twisting the base.

From first application, it is very obvious that this offers minimal coverage, however it can be layered without gathering or creasing. That being said, if you are a full coverage person, this won't be for you unless combined with an under eye corrector (which it layers well over).

What I personally love about this concealer is that is feels very lightweight and is light reflecting without giving a fake pearlescent effect. It is similar to my beloved (and repurchased countless times) YSL Touche Éclat, however it feels more hydrating and offers some more light diffusing. I also love that I can apply it over makeup during the day to freshen up, without disturbing my base. Also, although it is light diffusing, it doesn't highlight fine lines.

There are eight shades available, which isn't huge but hopefully more will be added in the future.

Overall, this concealer is a hit for me. If you have very dark circles/are a mother trying to banish the signs of only a few hours sleep, this won't be for you on its own, however combined with a corrector, it will brighten the under eye area without feeling like a heavy duty product. The bonus is that it applies best with fingers so will work really well for busy people.

Have you tried Becca Light Shifting Brightening Concealer? Are you tempted to? I'd love to hear!
