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:

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.

      I didn't care for this product. It made my oily skin get dry and flaky. It also didn't add a glow under my foundation.

          I received this as a free sample and I normally don't leave bad reviews but I felt like this product deserves a negative review. I put it on and let it set in while drying my hair, it looked very glowy. However when I put on my foundation (Estee Lauder double wear) it took a turn. My foundation didn't look smooth and flawless like it usually does with my hourglass mineral veil primer. My foundation look like it had separated and was very patchy. When I added concealer it made it even worse so I had to wash my face and start over. I was actually surprised by how many positive reviews this product has, maybe it just doesn't work well with the foundation I use.

              Comments about BECCA Backlight Priming Filter:

              This is a great primer to use if you're looking for the glow-y/dewy look. Incidentally, it's also great at keeping your make up put and lasting all day which is what a primer is supposed to do. Overall, what I like about it is that you can achieve that dewy look if that's what you're going for without wearing too many other products (highlighter, runny foundations, setting sprays) that can also weigh down your look. The only cons is that when you initially use it you may notice a detergent-like smell to the product but it goes away.

                    As someone whose skin tends to err on the oily side, I've always been searching for s product that gives me that "glow" without looking like an oil slick. I'm also someone who tends to want simplicity in their makeup routine-so a primer that looked great just worn by itself was my ultimate goal. I'm happy to say that this Becca primer fits all my requirements! I also have sensitive skin and this hasn't given me any issues at all! It blends well, gives my skin that little extra "something", and has gotten me lots of compliments!

                    Most days I will just wear this primer with a little bit of NARS concealer under my eyes (in addition to my normal routine of mascara and tinted brow gel) and I'm good to go! It's a great product if you want a fairly low-maintenance "natural" look.

                        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.
