Review: Becca Be A Light Palette

Hi Beauties,

I really am the worst beauty blogger, firstly I didn’t know that Becca launched their new Be A Light Palette* and secondly I wasn’t even excited about it. But I was kindly gifted the palette from the Sephora Showcase so I thought I better try it out and find out what all the fuss is about.


About the Becca Be a Light Palette:

A full face, finishing palette infused with innovative Light Diffusing Technology in 4 finishes.

Becca Swatches
From left to right; Shade 1 Brighten, Shade 4 Blush, Shade 3 Contour, Shade 2 Blur Powder (so faint you can’t even see it in the photo).

Overall Thoughts:

  • Retails for $46 USD or $78 AUD.
  • Available from Sephora or direct from the Becca website. Its also just launched on the Sephora Australia website.
  • The palette comes in two shades; Light to Medium or Medium to Dark
  • When I read the description I automatically was reminded of the Hourglass Ambient Powders. It looks to me that these Becca powders are trying to compete with Hourglass…
  • Lucky for me I was gifted Medium to Dark. When I first looked at the palette I thought it was going to be too light.
  • As I didn’t really know much about the palette I had to research what to actually do with it. The two big powders are to brighten and blur. You can mix them together to get the right face shade, which I love the concept. I’m wearing them together to set my foundation below. There is a contour shade, which is very small and personally I think its better as a bronzer. And the blush again is tiny, but is a beautiful winter shade, reminds me of MAC Warm Soul.
  • With the brighten and blur shades, I found them a tad dark for me. I also found it a bit too mattifying for my skin and it clung to dry patches- not happy.


Overall I don’t love the palette and think its overrated, then again I haven’t really heard much about it. Out of the palette I only really liked the blush, then again I have plenty of other blushes. So disappointing as this is the only Becca product I didn’t love. If you’ve tried it let me know your thoughts x

  1. I’m so torn as to whether I should pick up this palette. I own 3 other becca face palettes and while I love those I still don’t reach for them enough. But when I saw this it looked so pretty, I’ve definitely been tempted. It doesn’t sound like anything I’ll miss not picking up so I’ll pass on it as my sephora wish list is always overflowing.


  2. I’ll just be over here admiring this… I really want it, but also the sensible side to me is telling myself that I don’t need it. $78 AUD is just way to expensive for something that I know I won’t reach for. I don’t already use my other Becca face palettes much, so I don’t think I’d use this one much either. I’d rather put my money into the Benefit Cosmetics face palette….

  3. It sounds like such a lovely palette! I love the designed and the whole concept of it too. I never would’ve guessed that you mix the powders together to set your make up, I just would’ve assumed they were bronzers and highlighters haha. You have me intrigued now! Might need to check it out xx
