About the Collection
Becca Zero No Pigment Collection currently includes two products: foundation and multi-purpose highlighter. Both formulas are free of silicones, alcohol, mineral oil and synthetic fragrance. These products are cruelty-free 🐇 and vegan🍃
The motto of the collection is "zero to hide" and "skin is amped up, not covered up", which gives you an idea of what the brand is trying to achieve here. Both products are geared towards people, who want to perfect the look of their complexion, yet without adding any extra coverage or tint to it.
Zero No Pigment Glass Highlighter For Face + Lip (24 USD; Made in Italy) - is a scent-free, crystal-clear gloss that can be used on your lips, high points of the face and lids.
It comes with a large doe-foot applicator and has an interesting gel-meets-balm kind of texture. Do not underestimate it! It is quite potent and little goes a long way. To ensure that I do not go overboard with it, I scoop out a small amount onto the back of my hand and take it from there. It blends out with ease and is best applied with fingertips.
This formula feels hydrating and uber comfortable on the lips. From my experience (when used in a moderate amount on the cheekbones) it won't bleed either. Although it is not sticky, it might crease on the lids when used on top of eyeshadows (then again, any eye gloss does that).
This is a fun, multi-purpose gloss to play with if you are into that no shimmer/glitter, true GLASS skin look. I think it is a wonderful product for professional makeup artists, as it will be glorious for editorial photography. If you have that 90s clear gloss nostalgia, you might really enjoy this product too. Although I absolutely love a product like this (and you will definitely see it in action on my Instagram), I do wish the price was lower. Other than that I give it A
Zero No Pigment Virtual Foundation (36 USD; Made in Korea) - claims to smooth and blur out the appearance of skin, while providing an all-day hydration and oil control.
Packaging: this product comes in a mattified glass jar, one that looks very sleek and modern. It has quite a "high-end" weight to it, which might not be practical for travels (and yet so perfect for your vanity table or bathroom cabinet). Each jar contains 30 ml/ 1.0 oz of product, so the price is pretty much the same as that of other high-end primers.
Formula & Texture: this is essentially a water-based gel formula infused with Hyaluronic Acid and Glycerin, both of which add that nice skincare element of hydration and "plumped up skin" effect. Just by looking at it, some might say that the product doesn't look too dissimilar to a clear pore-filling primer. However, the difference here is in the formula itself:
