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.

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 have oily skin and I suppose it was kind of dumb of me to buy this because it's meant to give you that "glow", but my skin already looks "glowy" because it's so oily all the time. Also, it made my tarte foundation work poorer than usual so it was kind of an L for me overall.

          I love this primer. It's so light weight, and my face has this glow to it that lasts all day when I use it. My makeup stays put, doesn't look oily or slide around, and my skin doesn't dry out at all since I started using this product. It really is awesome :)

              Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

              I will never need another primer in my life. I'm all about the dewy finish, and when I begin my makeup routine with this primer I get that effect and it lasts all day. It doesn't look oily or greasy, it just gives my skin a lovely luminous effect. It's a more wearable version of the editorial all-over glow.

              Not only does this primer give my skin the perfect dewy finish, it also helps the rest of my makeup last all day, as a good primer should. I don't wear foundation and instead use this as a base for my makeup; my bronzer, blush, and highlighter doesn't fade or budge until I remove it all at the end of the day. This product does everything it's supposed to do and it does it so well!

                For a woman in her 40's this is not a good product. It does not prime but does leave quite the glow. It enhanced my fine line and wrinkles and didn't do anything as far as coverage, priming, or a base. Just a glow. A sunshine of a glow. Nothing else.

                        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.
