Is BECCA Closing?
As sad as it is true, beloved and famed makeup brand BECCA Cosmetics is closing in September 2021. In a statement made on the company’s website and social media, “The global pandemic has had an impact on everyone around the world on many levels. It has also had a tremendous impact on so many businesses. At BECCA, an accumulation of challenges, together with the global impact of COVID-19, has sadly been more than our business can withstand, and we have had to make the heartbreaking decision to close down the BECCA brand at the end of September 2021.” The news that BECCA Cosmetics is closing has had a profound effect on many fans and the makeup community as a whole.
Is BECCA Cosmetics Cruelty-Free?
Cruelty-Free & Vegan Status
Parent company Estée Lauder acquired BECCA in 2016. While Estée Lauder is not a cruelty-free company, their child company BECCA is cruelty-free. BECCA does not test their products or ingredients on animals. Furthermore, their suppliers do not test their ingredients on animals. Finally, BECCA does not sell in mainland China, where animal testing is still required under certain circumstances. Therefore, BECCA is 100% cruelty-free. They are certified cruelty-free by PETA Beauty Without Bunnies. While they are not a 100% vegan brand, they have an array of vegan products currently available.
With all the facts and logistics out of the way, it’s time to share the best of BECCA: my favorite BECCA Cosmetics products and their all-time best sellers according to their loyal fanbase. Scroll to read on and shop their products before they are sold out forever!
Ignite Liquified Light Highlighter
The Ignite Liquified Light Highlighters from BECCA is arguably my favorite product of all time from the brand. I’m a sucker for liquid highlighters, especially ones with a (vegan) pearly finish on the skin like this one has. It’s easily blendable, water & transfer-resistant, and non-comedogenic. My favorite way to use this product is to mix it in with my foundation for a glowy finish.
Light Shifter Dewing Tint
These days, a full face of foundation seems pretty intimidating (unless you’re an absolute makeup rockstar). For those of us looking to keep it light, the Light Shifter Dewing Tint from BECCA is a beautiful rendition to your collection of tinted moisturizers. This tinted moisturizer is 100% vegan and comes in 7 shades that give a buildable light to medium coverage.
Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder
I almost always set my face with a loose setting powder, even on my foundation and concealer-free days. The Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder is one of my favorite makeup items in my collection. This loose powder comes in two shades, a soft pink-toned beige & a warm tan. This setting powder provides a cooling sensation to the skin while blurring pores & imperfections.
Becca x Khloé Kardashian Palette
It’s hard to believe that BECCA Cosmetics is closing, especially with collabs such as the Becca x Khloé Kardashian Palette. This all-in-one palette has rich satin matte tones of bronzer, blush, & highlighter. The formula is plush and buildable, making it an easy palette to grab and go. I love utilizing my palettes to their full potential, so a warm eyeshadow look is definitely in the stars.
Under Eye Brightening Corrector
The BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector is a must-have for beauties who struggle with dark under eye circles. This concealer comes in two shades that blend seamlessly into a range of skin tones. Its creamy formula illuminates, brightens, and nourishes the skin. I recommend setting it with their best-selling setting powder to avoid creasing throughout the day.
Skin Perfector™ Highlighter
BECCA Cosmetics is known for its blinding and radiant highlighters. So naturally, I had to share one of their top sellers (and a personal favorite of mine). The Skin Perfector Highlighter is a pressed powder with a smooth creamy formula. This highlighter comes in 10 different buildable shades that give a natural and radiant glow.
Volcano Goddess Glow Gloss
Okay, so lip glosses are kind of not a thing right now, at least not to me with all this mask-wearing business. However, since BECCA is closing, it only felt right to include their best-selling gloss before it’s gone for good. The Volcano Goddess Gloss comes in 3 iridescent gemstone-inspired shades. They plump & nourish your lips while giving a burst of radiant color & shine.
Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer
Fact: I’m always tired. With that said, I don’t know what took me so long to buy this. The Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer is the not-so-rude awakening you likely need to start your day. This nourishing primer lightens and brightens fatigued, dark under eyes. Use it under makeup or alone for a brighter look each and every day. No one at the 10 AM Zoom meeting has to know.
Ultimate Coverage 24 hr Foundation
For all the rockstar beauties I mentioned earlier, BECCA has a 24 hour full coverage foundation you’ll want to grab before it’s gone. This foundation comes in a whopping 42 shades of glory. BECCA has compiled a secret sauce formula to finding the right shade for you based on your skin tone. Whether you’re a cool-toned bisque or a warm-toned truffle, it’s likely you’ll find your shade.
BECCA Closing Sale
The official BECCA Closing Sale has yet to be announced. In fact, it’s not clear that there will be an official closing sale at all. As the company has decided to end its 20-year term in the industry, it is unlikely that there will be a sale unless there are ample leftover products come August 2021. BECCA announced that they are officially closing their doors in September 2021, and products are available only while supplies last. Therefore, it’s best to buy up your favorite (or soon to be favorite) BECCA products before they are gone for good, regardless of an official BECCA closing sale. While my makeup game has been less than optimal because of COVID, I’ve already placed my order of my favorite Editor’s Choice products.
