Yes, you read the title right– a no pigment makeup collection. The BECCA Cosmetics Zero collection offers two pigment-free products that promote skin as it is. No coverup needed, or as their tagline for the collection states ‘zero to hide’. The collection features a no pigment foundation and a highlighter to give skin that glass-like effect that has been popular for the last couple years. Both products are vegan and cruelty-free.
This collection is an outside-the-box innovation in a sea of beauty sameness but does it hold up? Keep reading for my full review on the BECCA Cosmetics Zero collection>>
No Pigment Foundation
BECCA Cosmetics Zero No Pigment Foundation is a silicone-free foundation skincare hybrid that has absolutely zero pigment. No shade guessing here! It’s designed to blur and smooth out for a super natural no-makeup look while diffusing light.
This product feels more like a skincare item than it does a foundation. Its aim is to minimize imperfections while providing skin benefits. The foundation formula contains hyaluronic acid and glycerin to hydrate skin. It has a matte finish though and helps with oil control.
The foundation comes with a little spatula to scoop the product out– I blend in directly with my fingers.
Here is a before photo with no makeup on. You can clearly see redness, uneven skin and a few blemishes.
Here is the after photo where I have applied the foundation, glass highlighter and a touch of concealer under my eyes & groomed my brows… that’s it! You can see how the foundation blurs skin giving it a soft-focus look. My skin looks more evened out and while imperfections are muted yet still visible. Not bad for no pigment!
The BECCA Cosmetics Zero No Pigment Glass Highlighter for Face+Lip gives skin a glass-like highlighted glow by catching and reflecting light. You know that glow you get after a good workout? This is that.
I apply to highlight the high points of my face such as cheekbones to give skin dimension. It can also be applied to lips for a clear gloss shine. It’s not sticky although it does have a tackiness that takes awhile to dry down.
The BECCA Cosmetics Zero glass highlighter gives a very pretty glow to the skin and is great for those days when you want a natural-looking glow.
While I like the overall blurring effect the BECCA Cosmetics Zero Foundation has on my skin, I don’t think it is a product I would go out of my way to purchase.
The no pigment foundation is $36 for 1 Fl. Oz. so it’s on the pricier side. I feel like I could get a similar effect by wearing a less expensive primer on its own. If your skin has a lot of redness or imperfections that you want to cover, this will not help. I don’t recommend wearing this as a primer as in my experience, foundation and concealer doesn’t blend nicely over it. It truly is designed to wear on its own.
I do like the effect of the BECCA Cosmetics Zero Pigment Glass Highlighter however again, I think a similar effect could be achieved using a clear less expensive lip gloss. If putting lip gloss on your skin is less than appealing and you want that glass skin effect, this highlighter is a must. The price is $24 for 0.23 Fl Oz.
