Backlight Priming Filter

Item #: 2291329 Size: 1.0 oz

Ask a Question
More than just a primer, it's the secret behind the iconic BECCA glow. Infused with three unique Filtering Luminescent Pearls, each one adds a different drop of diffused light. Blended together, they result in a first of its kind, lightweight, whipped fluid that creates a smooth canvas and acts as an instant filter. Blurs imperfections and gives skin a healthy, luminescent glow.
Apply a thin layer to moisturized skin from the center of the face outward. Wait a few seconds and apply makeup as usual or wear alone.

        I really like this product. I have combination/oily skin. I havent tried many primers. I have always thought that they were pointless. This primer makes my skin feel really smooth and it gives a nice glow without making me look greasy. I have used this primer for a week and I think it will last a long time. You really don't have to use very much at all. I used a little too much one day and I looked like a disco ball.

          Words cannot express my love for this primer. I have combo skin and at first I thought I couldn't pull off a somewhat shimmery primer, but I was wrong. This gives the skin such a natural luminosity and I love how it makes my skin feel too. The scent is intoxicating to me, although some may not care for it. Just one pump covers my entire face and this has never ever ever broken me out (and I break out from a lot). I'm almost done with my first bottle and I will be repurchasing once I run out.

            This primer is a neat idea in theory, but isn't really worth it. When first applied, there is definitely a somewhat dewy/metallic sheen, which is very (VERY) subtle underneath foundation (I tend to wear medium to full-coverage foundations). The sheen quickly disappears as the day goes on. The primer also smells pretty awful, it reminds me of cheap bathroom cleaning products.

                If you love to glow this is the greatest primer ever. It gives your skin AMPLE glow right away at a full coverage without looking cakey or milky etc. It blends flawlessly with my liquid foundation and gives you a lit from within look all day even if you skip highlight or go for a more toned down look. Worth the price imo and is just a great product.

                  This product was recommended by one of the Ulta beauty consultants as the perfect primer to use under semi-matte or matte foundation (I use L'Oréal Infallible Pro-matte). I wanted a little bit of glow without being shiny to soften the matte look, which can accentuate wrinkles. Love this product! One tiny drop covers your entire face. Great primer.

                      I absolutely love this product, I bought the best of Becca kit and received the travel size. It's the only product I have to wear on my face after I wash - and I look dewy, flawless, and ready for the day. My question is - what size is the full size bottle? 1 oz.? Do I need to purchase two if I use one pump per use? Thank you kindly!
