I was first introduced to Becca Cosmetics back in 2002 and their Compact Concealer ($35) was one of the first products I tried.
The first thing I noticed is how impressive the shade selection is. There are a total of 34 colors with different undertones so you are bound to find a match. I have Banana, which is a light yellow-based color and a good match for my NC30 skin.
The concealer comes in a little round compact with a mirror and two concealers in different formulas. The medium-cover formula on the right has a creamier texture and is perfect for covering up undereye circles. The extra-cover formula on the left feels heavier and waxier and I usually use this to camouflage zits and other imperfections.
While both formulas do cover well, I find them to be a little too dry. If I do not moisturize well prior to application, the concealer will definitely highlight fine lines and flakes. Moderation is also key when applying this concealer. If you go overboard, it will have a tendency to cake.
