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.

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.

        Weird residue

        By Jaade

        from Green Bay

        Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

        I always moisturize before and then I put about 2 pumps and honestly it might be my fAilt but after rubbing it in a bit much I start to get like dead skin or just flakes and debris. I always wash my face before but this happens all the time. Idk I don't like it.

          Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

          First let me start off by saying I love the way this product looks on my skin! It gives a beautiful natural glow and I have had quite a few people compliment me on my skin while wearing this. BUT it has caused me to breakout. At first I thought it was just a normal breakout and my skin being weird but after reading other reviews I see some others have had the same issue. I gave the bottle to my mom (who rarely breaks out) and she had two pimples the next day. I'm not sure what it is. I love the way this stuff looks and feels but unfortunately I have gone back to my old smashbox primer that doesn't break me out.

            I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this stuff. I have combo skin in the winter and oily in the summer, and since I'm 57, I hesitate using a highlighter because many of the accentuate my fine lines and wrinkles. With this stuff under my makeup, I no longer have that "flat" makeup look that some matte makeup causes... I have this glow wherever I put it, but it doesn't look glittery or even shiny - it's just this beautiful glow. I put it on my cheekbones, brow bone, and temples, and even after not sleeping well I look like I just came back from vacation. Love, love, love this stuff!

              I love this primer! The feel, the smell, and the illumination. I will say though that it doesn't do a whole lot to keep your foundation put. I didn't expect it to, but it did seem to make my foundation transfer a little. So just keep in mind you May have to use a setting powder when you usually don't. Another thing is I didn't really notice enough luminosity coming through to be impressed but maybe that's because I use a full coverage foundation.

                I love the Becca glow I always see in ads and Instagram postings. This is a nice primer that gives a glow. i wear it with or without foundation for a nice glow. There is no glitter which is nice.

                  I ordered this primer during the 21 days of beauty because I was running out of my old one and was looking to try something new. This primer is soooooo beautiful. I feel like it gives my skin this beautiful all day glow. The glow comes through under my fullest overage foundations. I will even wear the primer just on its own because it gives my skin such a healthy glow. I have dry skin so I'm not sure how it would work on oily skin but for me the primer is really hydrating and just overall wonderful.
