Becca The One Perfecting Brush - pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

Becca has just come out with a new brush, and it's pretty large in size and may have you wondering how in the world do I use this thing? Well let me tell you, this brush is great! Can replace these 10 tools: foundation, powder, contour, bronzer, stipple, blush, fan, and concealer brushes, kabuki, and sponge -- speeding up your makeup application. I started by using this for applying my contour - and it does an amazing job at that - but then I played around with using it for my foundation and powder too. Check out my full review below, including all the product info, after the pics!

Becca The One Perfecting Brush Info & Review:
Cost/Availability: $49.00. Available on the Becca website, at Sephora, and everywhere else Becca cosmetics are sold.
My Rating: 5 out of 5 Kisses!

A bouquet of brushes in One Perfecting Brush! A true beauty multi-tasker, The One Perfecting Brush takes the guesswork out of brush work. Cuts makeup application in half by replacing these 10 tools: foundation, powder, contour, bronzer, stipple, blush, fan, and concealer brushes, kabuki, and sponge.

From start to finish, primer to powder, The One Perfecting Brush can be used with liquids, creams, powders and anything in between. Non-porous, high-quality goat hair allows product to sit on top of bristles rather than absorbing, ensuring a seamless application with no wasted product.

Target specific areas with your favorite highlighter for an air brushed effect. Contour with powders, creams or liquids for sculpted perfection. Build and layer foundations and setting powders for smooth, natural coverage. Offers versatility and precision for a perfected look in seconds. The Becca website has a great list of how to use this brush.

Products can be applied without having to clean between uses - allowing you to go from liquids to powders with ease. Works well for layering liquid or powders over foundation application. Pairs well with all Becca foundation formulas, Shimmering Skin Perfectors (liquid or pressed), and Beach Tint.

I'll start by commenting on the size and shape of this brush - it's unlike anything I have in my brush collection and it's pretty large, yet easy to hold and easy to use. It's bristles are soft too.

I originally started using this brush to apply my contour and bronzer, which I think is a great first-place to go with this if you're a little unsure about how to use it. It applies my contour to my cheeks like a dream - almost too perfect, if there is such a thing! I would dip the one end of the brush in my contour shade and apply to my cheek bones and blend down. The rest of the brush (without the product on it) would pull it and blend it so beautifully. I put a pic of me using this to apply my contour on my Instagram page.

Then I decided it was time to try it out with foundation - which seemed like the one use for this I was most nervous about. However, I was amazed at how well it applied my liquid foundation. Blended it nicely and you could stipple it on too if you needed to do so. Then I applied my powder foundation and same thing - easy to use and it was FAST.

One thing I want to point out is this brush made applying my foundation and powder foundation super fast - it's a claim I thought was completely true. They also say you don't have to clean this brush in between products, and while that scared me, I did it anyway and I had no issues. I would still spot clean between uses (day to day) if you plan to use several products with this same brush, but overall it worked flawlessly.

I know this brush isn't cheap, but it's a brush that can work for multiple uses in your makeup routine - really making it several brushes in one. It's great quality and really did speed up my makeup routine. I am going crazy over this brush - it's been so much fun to use and it's unique in shape and size. I know some people were asking if it was similar to the NARS Ita Brush - which I don't own but have seen in person and read up about. They are both made from goat hair and they look similar, but the Becca brush is much larger and much more full in bristles. I'd say the NARS Ita Brush is mostly good for contour and maybe blending, but the Becca The One Perfecting Brush is good for many uses. If you're trying to decide between the two I'd recommend the Becca The One Perfecting Brush. I can honestly say I haven't been this impressed with a makeup brush in I don't know how long!

I'm in love with the Becca The One Perfecting Brush and would definitely recommend!!

Now let me know what you think...
What do you think of this multi-tasker brush? Have you tried this or is this on your beauty wish list? Discuss in the comments below.


  1. Looks great but *yikes* $50 - I'm going to be trying a very similar one by EcoTools lol.

  2. more importantly, how cute are your nails?

  3. @ CosmeticCrazy: Yeah, $50 is not chump change by any means but I can truly say this brush is worth it as a splurge, for me anyway. I did see the EcoTools one and it looks similar but more bulky and the bristles don't look like they're cut the same way (at least from what I could see in the packaging, lol). Next time I have some extra money I do plan to buy the EcoTools version and do a comparison, but right now loving this one so much!

  4. @ Anonymous: Thank you for the compliment on my nails :) They're just the Maybelline nail stickers (I forget what they're called). Found them at Big Lots for $1.00!

  5. I really want to love this brush!! It has been so hyped up--I have not found a bad review yet. And actually I completely agree with all of the hype and each one of the claims!! EXCEPT for one thing that I have yet to see mentioned: it sheds like a dog!! I'm serious, it is not a small matter. I pick 5-10 hairs off my face and clothes after use. And if you don't get them all and go out in public it is embarrassing for someone to pick that course white hair from your face perhaps thinking it grew there or that you are just really bad at hiding your grey. I think it is a deal breaker for me....which is a heart breaker because it is a great brush.

  6. @ heatherc: That's odd - I didn't have any shedding issues. Yikes! Sorry to hear that because like you said, it's a great brush!
