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:

      Bought this in one of the Becca's kit. It is well worth every penny. I tend to be a bit oily but I still loved this product. It gave me a gorgeous glow the whole night. I would recommend for any skin type. If you're oily, wear a more mattifying foundation on top but you'll still get the glow.

            This was suggested to me by an Ulta employee & I'm so glad that I got it! I never realized what a difference a primer can make. This product is so moisturizing which is perfect for my dry skin. It doesn't feel heavy or feel like it's clogging my pores; it feels so fresh & natural on my skin - I'm in love! I've tried others primers & this one is clearly the best yet.

              Pretty finish

              Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

              This primer leaves you with a really pretty, glowy & hydrated finish. Unfortunately for me, I have incredibly oily skin so it didn't help keep my makeup on but I can't necessarily blame the primer for that. Overall I think this is a great primer, it'd probably be amazing for normal to dry skin types, but I'd probably skip if you have oily skin & go for the benefit porefessional or the smashbox photo finish instead.

              This product is AWESOME! I use it as a primer under Naked foundation. It blends well with an almost translucent pigmentation but somehow it corrects any flaws! Because of the pigmentation, I think it would work well with any skin color. The glow it gives is radiant! It even comes through under my foundation (but Naked is light coverage). I also use a tad on top of foundation to highlight (nose, cheeks, etc.). I'm really liking this more than the powder highlighters! It is pricey but a little goes a long way as its not meant for coverage. You won't regret this purchase!

                  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!
