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.

Best Primer Ever

By Denise

from Reading, PA

Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

I have tried several primers that have gottwn rave reviews, but none of them really impressed me enough to continue using...until now. This primer does not leave me looking shiny, as I thought it would. And I have oily skin, so I am always shiny by early afternoon. My foundation looks perfect all day long, even with no powder. Oddly enougj, it prevents my skin from looking like an oil slick by the end of the day. It also has had no adverse effect on my skin, I would actually say my natural skin looks better. I am not sure if its this product or not, but its the only new product I have added. I like the smell. I use it after Sunday Riley Good Genes & Juice Beauty Oil Free Moisturizer and my It Cosmetica CC Cream. This combination is working great. I am 42 with some fine lines, large pores, oily but sensitive skin. I highly recommend you try it if you have oily skin, large pores & imperfections. Works like a dream!

    So far this product has been great. I am happy with how it applies and really glues my foundation on! Applies light and smooth. Some people had said this product gives them a glow but I haven't seen that personally. I could see using this product in the summer with very light coverage

            I just love the sheen this primer adds. It's not glittery or unnatural. A perfect base, but almost pretty enough to just wear alone!

              Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

              I was motivated to write this review because I skipped this primer one day and saw a huge difference in the appearance of my foundation midway throughout the day, and that sold me on its effectiveness. I have tried numerous primers and had very limited success. The silicones made my T-zone oily and they never fully absorbed into my skin. I don't have this problem with this BECCA primer. The primer itself is very lightly citrus scented. It is non-greasy, and absorbs easily, When it dries down, it feels a bit like it has toned/tightened my skin - but in a good, non-drying kind of way. Before applying foundation, it does look a bit too shiny on its own for my taste. However, it gives my foundation a natural glow, and keeps it looking fresh all day. I have tried it now with no less than seven different foundations, from drugstore brand to high end, and it works well with all of them. I do not recommend this primer under BB or CC cream because the formulas don't seem to want to play nice together. I ended up with streaks and overall patchy coverage with two different brands of BB/CC creams.

                      Backlight Priming Filter gives a very subtle luminosity to the face, but does not make you look shiny because of the luxurious whipped formula.

                      Our Backlight Priming Filter is fine to use on sensitive skin, but I do want to mention that it is not claimed to be non comedogenic.
