BECCA’s look super effortless, almost out of the bed with perfect glowing skin, messy hair and natural makeup. CHANTECIALLE’s is clean and polished with flawless skin. I have been wanting to explore these two brands for a while and since I have cleared out some bases that didn’t work on me, I have room for more.
If you are new to these brands like I am, take a minute to read their brand philosophy from their respective website. Perhaps this will help you understand their products better.
The whole philosophy of BECCA is about creating a natural, flawless look. It’s really about skin looking amazing – everything else is secondary.

I was pleasantly surprised with the array of foundation shades BECCA makes. BECCA is the first prestige cosmetics brand committed to providing a Skin Perfecting Make-Up System for all women of all skin colours. They are able to match any complexion exactly with their extraordinary collection of 12 powder colours, 30 foundation colours and 34 concealer colours, ranging from the fairest white (Nougat) to the darkest black (Expresso).
I bought 4 base products from BECCA and the loose powder was a gift with purchase.
Resurfacing Primer: Line & Pore Minimising, Mattifying Formula – HKD550
Shimmering Skin Perfector: Illuminator SPF 25+ in Opal – HKD550
Luminous Skin Colour: Tinted Moisturiser SPF 25+ in Nude – HKD550
Mineral Powder in Bloom – HKD420
I haven’t got a chance to wear them yet but they seem pretty decent when I tried them at the store. The packaging is slim and compact but it has the same rubbery texture NARS has so I am a little worried about them turning nasty in our hot and humid weather. Guess time will tell.
CHANTECAILLE makeup is renowned for its natural look, particularly the translucent foundations that have revolutionized the way women use coverage. And don’t we love the purple boxes? Their products come in the most luxury packaging. Modern and elegant.
Although their lip products are very attractive, I picked up what I was there for, their bases.
Future Skin: Oil Free Gel Foundation in Cream – HKD680
Compact Makeup – HKD580
This post pretty much concluded all the base products I bought from Hong Kong. These bases will surely spice up my existing collection. I am happy just looking and admiring them and I hope I will be happier wearing them.
