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.

Find your glowing skin look with the BECCA Glow Glossary - with six glows to choose from #DefineYourLight.

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:

    First at all I got a very fair sensitivity skin, with redness, oily T-zone and dullness in the rest of my face and break ups with almost any new products... so to find a good product it's very difficult for me. I meet the Becca Backlight Priming Filter as a sample, I used every day for a week and that's what I found: Long term makeup, no need to retouch after 6-8 hours (usually I need to apply settings powder after 2 hour in my T-zone), no break ups, healthier look. I suggest to try a sample as I did, but definitely I would recommended as a daily use.

        Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

        I was so excited to try this product after hearing great things from a few different friends. However after the very first time I used it I had two new breakouts- one on my cheek and one on my chin.
        I decided to give it a few more tries. I really love how light and SMOOTHE it feels on my skin! It also has a slight "glitter" or shimmer to it which makes your skin look super soft and even.
        Unfortunately, after every use of this product I just get more breakouts and I'm so bummed because it's a great product!

        I believe the main contribution from this product to my breakouts are: the fragrance

        I would only recommend this to others who do not typically suffer from breakouts hardly ever.

                I got this primer as a sample when I bought the Becca soft light blurring powder (also a great product!). I don't think I would have sought out a primer because I was under the impression that they didn't do anything. I use this primer in its own with the Becca powder as well as with the BB cream I use in the summer. It evens and brightens my complexion nicely. I wish I could describe better what it does. I love it!

                    I am all about the glowing makeup trend! I was beyond excited to try this because I have heard so many good things. It does give a subtle glow to the skin however it doesn't last very long and doesn't do a lot to help your makeup last like a primer should. I found that it did make me break out so while I wont be using it again I still think other people should give it a try. At times I feel like it can emphasize the acne scars I have, however that is only if I wear it for more then 4 hours. Overall, I do think its overpriced but its not a bad product.

                    Beautiful for the first few hours but soon after, oily. I don't usually have oily skin and this product caused me to break out and have heavy skin oil. I tried it for a little over a week until I pushed it to the back of all my other make up.

                        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.

                        Whereas Backlight Priming Filter uses pearls that diffuse light to blur imperfections and provide a luminous glow that evens skin.
