Most Helpful Positive Review My go-to primer
I was motivated to write this review because I skipped this primer one day and saw a huge difference in the appearance of my foundation midway throughout the day, and that sold me on its effectiveness. I have tried numerous primers and had very limited success. The silicones made my T-zone oily and they never fully absorbed into my skin. I don't have this problem with this BECCA primer. The primer itself is very lightly citrus scented. It is non-greasy, and absorbs easily, When it dries down, it feels a bit like it has toned/tightened my skin - but in a good, non-drying kind of way. Before applying foundation, it does look a bit too shiny on its own for my taste. However, it gives my foundation a natural glow, and keeps it looking fresh all day. I have tried it now with no less than seven different foundations, from drugstore brand to high end, and it works well with all of them. I do not recommend this primer under BB or CC cream because the formulas don't seem to want to play nice together. I ended up with streaks and overall patchy coverage with two different brands of BB/CC creams.
Most Helpful Critical Review May Have Caused Allergic Reaction
I was so excited to try this product. I almost always read tons of reviews before buying new products - and this product had rave reviews. I bought it on a Saturday and proceeded to use it - mixed with my normal foundation - on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday morning when I woke up - my face was so swollen, puffy and red that I called into work and had to go get steroid shot and steroid pack for the week.
Doctor said I put something on my face that irritated it and this was the only new thing that I had tried in the last week or so (it can take a few days for your body to really freak out with an allergic reaction). I did more research and found that it contained fragrance mix - which I have been shown to be allergic to. I use some other things with fragrance mix, but haven't had this happen before. I returned the primer to the store. I know to be more careful and read labels WELL before purchasing.
I will say - aside from the reaction - the product was nice. Easy to apply and provided that shimmer without being glittery. Didn't make my makeup break up (I use Tarte Amazonian Clay full coverage). The product was nice - I am just unable to use it due to allergies.
(I've attached photos to show the reaction - I'm sorry, it's not good, but I just want you to be aware and make an educated decision by reading ingredients. I woke up at 6:30AM, Had the shot around 10AM, and you can see where the redness and swelling decreases later. The other photo is me normally - without the allergic reaction.) Hope this helps!
If you don't have allergies or skin sensitivity - this is probably a good product for you.
Reviewed by 607 customers I would buy this again and make Becca my trademark look!
Nery from Clark, NJ
Yes, this product is a little pricey but buy it on sale or use a coupon if you can because it's great! I absolutely LOVE this primer. I was using Morphe primer, but saw this one and wanted to try it, so I did. I immediately saw a difference. It made my makeup stand out more and my face felt so nice, smooth and light. This Becca primer does not cake on. It feels very nice and makeup goes on well on top of it. I will be buying this product again in the future.

Noticed a huge difference the first day. My makeup was on point all day. I was on loved with the smooth finish it gave my skin.
My new Fav!
Susie from Florida
Smooth silky primer, glows through any foundation. Love it
LOVE THIS PRIMER
MJ from Spartanburg SC
My favorite primer for my dry textured skin. It evens out my skin tone and leaves a beautiful radiance making my foundation look so much smoother.
A daily staple
Mature buyer from Texas
I use this under my foundation for a glowing radiant look. I used to use primer sometime, but with this I use daily. Instantly brightens my skin, sometimes I go without concealer. I just started using this but already a must have in my daily routine.
Brittany from Kentucky
I love this for achieving the perfect glow. I also use it in my kit on bridal clients to make sure they have the perfect highlight for photos. It helps makeup stay all day, too.
Obsessed with this primer!
Rphair from South Carolina
Swapped to this from the Tatcha primer to be a little more cost efficient, definitely a must have for my makeup bag from now on!
Carissa from Peoria IL
YOU NEED THIS!! I literally wear it bare face no makeup and I look glowing! I feel so confident now going out without foundation!
Miranda from PA
I struggle with textured skin and big pores. I cleansed my face, moisturizer, and then this primer. My foundation went on flawlessly and glowy. I will definitely will be buying a back up, so I don't run out.
Stock up on this NOW before it's gone :(
Maria S. from Chicago
Holy grail for years. This elevates my foundation to higher levels. I don't know what I will do without this. Definitely just bought several of this one AND the purple one (also incredible) to hopefully last me a very long time! I'm going to miss you, BECCA ♥️😢
Lisa from Houston TX
This does it all for me. Beautiful glow and keeps my makeup in place. For reference, I'm 51 with fairly normal skin that gets a little drier in winter. I'll have to get a few backups before Becca is gone! :(
Great on its own
Miranda from Nashville
I don't wear much makeup and I love this on bare skin with just some concealer and bronzer. Gives a beautiful glow so if you aren't into a dewy look or have oily skin this might not be for you. I have dry fair skin and I love this!
Makayla from Georgia
I absolutely love this primer!! Bought it a few days ago for my kit & have fallen in love!!! Just stocked up on it! Gonna miss BECCA ❤️❤️
MommaG from UT
Walked in asking for a product that would help give me a shiny but not greasy look. Was sick of my makeup looking matte. This stuff is perfect! Wont ever go without it.
Glowing gracefully from Dallas, TX
This is a secret weapon for me. When applying it automatically transforms my complexion to a natural glow. I can wear it alone or layered with foundation for a more polished look. It's a must for healthy but aging skin.
Hanbanan from Ca
It gives you a glow, but not one I like. Not a natural, very oily and slick. Don't like it at alllllll
Noomie from USA
At first I really liked this product. It makes your skin nice and glowy. Then I noticed that my makeup rubs and rolls off my face in chunks when I use this. I haven't had this problem with literally any of my other products. Not sure if it was getting old or what.
Rae from Nashville
I've tried about every primer in the book and this is my new favorite! Gives your skin a gorgeous glow and makes you look absolutely flawless. Looks great under light or full coverage foundations. And keeps your makeup in place!! For reference I have normal skin w/ a drier t zone.
Amazing on dry skin!
Sda489 from Illinois
My skin changed from oily to dry after having a baby, and my normal skincare and makeup products no longer worked for me. I was at a loss as to which products to purchase to make my dry skin glow, and I am so glad I decided to try this primer! It is amazing and makes me look like a have a lit from within glow even when I have foundation on. And it makes my makeup last all day without caking or breaking up. This is amazing and a must try for dry skin :).
Sweetlittleredw from Alabama
It does give you a beautiful glowing look, but it does not keep my makeup on all day long. I only bought it because it was on sale, but I would not repurchase
Love this product
Jessica from Illinois
Makes my face look smooth with a subtle glow - I love this so much!
I would definitely buy this again!!!!
Des from Charlotte NC
If you have dry skin and want luminous skin under your makeup! This is the product for you!
angel mom from Minnesota
This "primer" was a disappointment in that it doesn't help makeup stay on all day. I have normal skin and tested this several days to ensure it wasn't working. My makeup felt like it melted off. It looks good on skin by itself and that may be how I use this up. I won't buy again for a primer.
Chelles from St. Louis, MO
This was my first time purchasing this product. I've had issues with other primers flaking and was worried this would do the same. It doesn't! It goes on so smooth and makes my skin look so dewy. On days I don't feel like wearing a full face of makeup I just apply this and skip the foundation. It gives a nice 'blurring' effect and makes skin look so good!
Anne from Pittsburgh
I love this primer! It immediately brightens my skin and evens it out enough that on good skin days I don't think I even need foundation. I can just put this one. I love it. The smell is a little odd but not terrible. I've been using it for about a week and I love it.
