October of last year 2013, I attended iFabbo San Francisco Conference.
Here are the products I received in my goody bag. I already reviewed Vitabath Body Wash in Cucumber & White Tea (top left). Not only that during the conference, there were some brands representing. I received a sample foundation from Becca.

Thoughts: The reason why I took so long to try this sample is because when it comes to foundation/BB/CC creams, I'm pretty good just using one product at a time. I only open a new product after I finish another. With that said, I was still excited about receiving this sample. I've always heard great things about this brand and their foundation.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no scent whatsoever. Secondly even though they say it's a medium consistency, I think it's in-between thin to medium. If you can tell, it really didn't cover my zit on my nose. I even tried covering it up with a concealer. It might be the primer I've been using. I'm not a big fan of it which I will review soon. Third when I swatched the foundation on my hand, it looked like Buff fitted me the best. I still think Buff is better than Buttercup but it didn't fit my neck. It was a little bit light. I probably have to mix colors which I'm not a big fan of. I believe you spend a lot of money on a foundation/BB/CC creams, you shouldn't mix. That's just my opinion. Fourth, it goes on smoothly and it's easy to apply with foundation brush, sponge, and even fingers. It leaves a smooth canvas. When it comes to hiding imperfections, you will most likely need a good primer and concealer. I also love that it leaves a dry canvas. This will be great for all skin type even dry skin individuals like myself. It doesn't dry out my skin or show the dry patches. Lastly, it lasted all day on me.
