      Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

      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.

      Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

      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.

        I previously used a glow primer from a different company and they no longer make it. I have searched for a long time for find something similar. I've tried the bargain brand products and they just don't look as natural. This product is worth the money. Easy to apply, very natural looking, gives just the right amount of glow and doesn't peel!

        Best Uses

          Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

          Looks pretty and glowy after applying but it doesn't do much else. I was oily by mid-morning, it doesn't correct or blur imperfections and it doesn't make my make-up last. This should not be considered a primer.

            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

                      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.

                      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.
