Backlight Priming Filter

1.0 oz Item 2291329

Find in Store-

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.

      Great primer. Isn't greasy and doesn't feel like silicone on your face. Lasts all day and delivers creamy smooth finish under foundation. Pleasant feel and scent.

          I don't like wearing foundation so I wanted something that would add some highlight but be super light. This is perfect! It goes on smooth and adds just the right amt of highlight and shine. It's not oily or dry. I'd recommend this to everyone

          It is great near eye and cheekbone area. It doesn't do as much as I hoped and just not worth the money for that. Feels very nice when you apply it.

            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.

                        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.
