I am fortunate to receive some Becca products thanks to Influenster.
Here are the products. I already reviewed Becca First Light Priming Filter Instant Complexion Refresh (top left). For this post, I will review the powder on the bottom.
Becca Soft Llight Blurring Powder in Golden Hour
Where to purchase: ULTA, Sephora, and online at beccacosmetics.com
Price: $38 for 10 g/ 0.35 oz
Made in USA
Description from the package: A real life wearable beauty filter. This soft loose setting powder graces skin with subtle luminosity, blurs imperfections and eliminates shine. The unique plush micro-fine texture creates a flattering veil that does not cake or settle into fine lines & pores. Ceramic microspheres scatter light to create a delicate, velvety finish that smooths, evens & perfects the complexion. Soft Light Blurring Powder sets makeup & prolongs wear. Flattering on all ages, skin tones & skin types. A soft whisper of light adds dimensionality to the complexion, creating the ultimate dream filter.
Thoughts: When it comes to powders, I don't apply a lot. I noticed with each year, my skin gets worst in dryness and fine lines. Powders show all my imperfections. For that reason, I only apply on the areas I applied concealer to set it. So when I read this powder doesn't show the imperfections, I was excited to try this out.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and I did not smell anything whatsoever. Secondly, I like the packaging. It's sturdy, well-made, unique, and professional looking. It has a see through that you can see how much powder you have left. I don't know if it's just me but I love being able to see the product go down. It might be because I have so much beauty products in my room. It feels like an accomplishment when I finish products. It also has a tight seal. When I turn the top to close, I hear and feel the clicking sound. I cannot see it open unless you manually open it. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. It will not break or open unless you are rough with the packaging. With that said and it's not really a big deal, but I think it's kind of bulky. If you put it on the vanity table, it'll stand out for the unique packaging. I actually love it on the vanity table. It's gorgeous! For travelling, it can kind of be bulky and heavy. Some might not mind it at all but some might. It all defends on the person. I actually don't mind since I don't travel much. Third, the powder is extremely fine. It's so fine to the touch that you hardly feel anything. Not only that, it's extremely easy to use. I was fortunate enough to receive a buffing brush but to test this product, I used other brushes as well and beauty sponge. You really don't have to use the brush they recommend with this product. I used a loose brush and the buffing brush that was given to me, and they both applied the same on the skin. Since the powder is so fine, it's light-weight and just sinks into the skin. You can buff it to make it melt into your skin but the result was the same on me with the loose powder. I don't know if it has to do with having dry skin but that's a possibility. My skin just absorbed the powder quickly. Honestly, it doesn't feel like I applied anything. Since I have dry skin, I usually apply powder on top of the concealer only. Most powders are too heavy for my skin. Instead of melting into the skin, it just lays on top of the skin. It looks patchy and with time, it cakes on me and you can see all the fine and thick lines. For that reason, I just apply it on top of concealer to set it. To test this product out, I applied all over. Initially, it looked flawless. It hid my imperfections, large pores on the nose and fine/thick lines. I really liked the result. It made me look younger and light reflected on my face. It really did blur out my imperfections. Lastly and at the end of the day, the results did not change much. My foundation and concealer lasted all day. It did not smear, fade, and come off. It lasted all day on me. I cannot say much about oil since I don't produce much. I notice slight oil on my T-zone but not to the point it's oily. It just looked dewy. It looked the same at the end of the day as how I applied it except for one thing. I noticed caking on my under eyes after five minutes of application. I just patted that area and it went back to looking as I applied it. Other than caking on my under eyes, it looked good.
