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.

    Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

    I only use this product alone. I like the natural dewy glow it gives me but I cannot use it as an actual primer aka under foundation. It ends up making all my makeup fall off and makes me look ultra oily. I don't spread it all over my face but I use it where you would use highlighter.
    I was slightly disappointed it didn't work as an actual primer but it's probably because of the foundation I use (urban decay naked).

          I actually almost cried when I ran out of it.
          Awesome product!
          The one thing I did learn was that you have to let it dry for a couple of minutes other wise it slides when you put on cover up

            Little trick. Let it dry before you apply another product
            Gives you just enough glow good for someone that doesn't like too much dewy look

                  I work 10 hour days and do not touch up my make up until I get home and this primer makes this possible without me looking like the walking dead. It highlights PERFECTLY without making my skin look oily/shiny. Definitely love Becca!

                      A:

                      This is a primer which will help blur the skin and give a very soft glow to the skin to help eliminate any imperfections, but we recommend to sue foundation over top if you are looking to even out the skin.

                      A:

                      First Light Priming Filter helps refresh and energize the skin using Cool Light Technology.
                      Whereas Backlight Priming Filter uses pearls that diffuse light to blur imperfections and provide a luminous glow that evens skin.
