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:

      I rotate between a few different primers for different looks and occasions and This is by far my favorite. It gives the perfect glow and makes my skin look so smooth. The only con is it seems like it takes quicker to dry than others? Other primers I can keep rubbing in if it feels wet stil but this one you kinda have to move fast but still give it time to dry without touching it or it will give a pilling effect

        I was going to buy the Urban Decay all nighter spray again but I wanted a different kind of Primer so instead I bought this and OMG I loooove it!!! It makes my skin feel so smooth and soft and also even. I have had bad skin all my life and this has helped tame it. I'm definitely always going to have this in my makeup bag. Thanks Becca!! I can't wait to try all of your other products :D

        I do not wear a lot of makeup and needed a light weight primer that I could wear under my powder or on its own - this primer was perfect. It is lightweight yet gives skin a nice glow when worn alone. I wish it wasn't quite as expensive but it has been worth it.

          I received a sample size, and I love the way it applies and looks under my Mac Studio Fix Fluid. I usually have an oily T-Zone, and this is the only one I've come across that helps with my oily skin, without over drying, and I've tried all the best primers on the market. This ones the best, hands down.

            I use this after my moisturizer. I use a little bronzer for color. I may use a tiny bit of concealer for redness, but that's all. I feel gorgeous with this on my face. I look flawless and don't see my pores!!

              Top 3 Primers of all time

              By Mrs. J from AZ

              from Surprise, AZ

              Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

              I bought this during the 28 days of sale. I was on the fence for years because I'm a Hispanic 32 year old with oily skin. I did my research and read reviews and some say it worked with their oily skin. I took the chance and bought it. I figured "hey it's on sale and if I don't like I can return". Oh my gosh I wish I would've tried this years ago. I absolutely love it and it's already half gone. This does not make my skin look oily at all. It goes and on and I feel like it feels like a light weight moisturizer. Which I love because I'm already oily. It does give my skin a luminous look. However, once I stick to my go to foundation (Clinique, it works great with my skin and this AZ heat) and other mattifying products I'm not disappointed. I see why it's so loved. Mind you I don't have pore issues. I feel like this primer is not meant for anyone that may have large pores. It does not fill in but more so creates a smooth canvas. I have on top gone in with other pore filling primers and they all work well together. I enjoy this still even in this AZ summer heat!! One of my top 3 primers!!

                I use this primer with the Becca liquid foundation! Perfect combo! My skin always has a perfect glow! I get complements all the time and asked what foundation I use, I never forget to tell them about this primer! You need a great primer before your foundation, this is it! Try it! You'll love it!
