Listen, I have my apprehensions about what appears to me as BECCA Cosmetics, long known as a brand that has SO MANY FOUNDATION shades—I’m talking RANGE FOR DAYS, dwindling down on their extensive range in exchange for “flexible” complexion products. Basically this means being able to still cater to a very wide range of skin tones—maybe even the same number as before, but with fewer products. I can’t be mad at a brand that can lessen its SKUs and still cater to darn near everybody. What I worry about though is perception because folks who don’t know the brand or who may not initially get what “flexible shades” means may feel excluded and not support the brand :/ I’m not so sure that the richly complected melanin beauty who might have worn BECCA’s deepest shade of Cacao might fit into the new flexible shade range. But on the same token, perhaps the brand wasn’t seeing a high enough demand for the shade. I don’t know. This is all my own speculation.
