Becca Backlight Priming Filter

Hello beauties, if you read my Huda Beauty Coral Obsessions palette review then you will know that I put in a huge Cult Beauty haul which included the product that I’m reviewing today. I have heard many great things from YouTube reviews about the Becca Backlight primer being amazing for those with dry skin and it providing a gorgeous dew to the skin so I desperately wanted to get my hands on it.

Creators of the finest, skin-perfecting formulas, BECCA’s gorgeous Backlight Priming Filter is the secret to a gorgeous glow. Synonymous with effortless enhancement, BECCA’s multi-award-winning range stars rich pigments, soft hues and weightless coverage to facilitate an enviable, airbrushed effect – so you look naturally luminous (and absolutely flawless).


Does anyone else get excited when a product comes in a glass bottle? There’s just something so luxurious about it, especially when it’s frosted like this one. The bottle has a study feel to it and has the gorgeous Metal design and logo on the top of the cap the same as the Skin Perfector compacts. This primer comes with a easy to use pump which is always a bonus. The only problem is I couldn’t imagine this being very travel friendly, but does look gorgeous on a dressing table.


This has a fairly thin texture, not thin enough to be runny as it holds its shape once pumped out. You will notice straight away that this primer has a strong citrusy scent to it. I personally love a scent but if that’s something you don’t enjoy then you will hate this. I think the scent goes very well and has a fresh skin kind of vibe to it.

I found this formula super easy to apply, I like to warm it up a little in my fingers and gently pat into my face. It’s a liquid consistency and soaks nicely into the skin. It has a peachy tint to it which is amazing at brightening the skins overall complexion.


You will see in the picture below that I applied it to my bare ‘matte’ skin on my hand and the how much of a gorgeous sheen this gives. It’s the most perfect glow without huge chunky glitter, giving the skin that wet look without looking oily or any greasy/wet feeling to it. I think this is perfect for those with dry skin to give that hydrated look and feel to the skin. I would possible avoid if you have oily skin as it could make your makeup look too oily as the day goes on. This looked so pretty underneath my makeup, just a healthy looking glow and thanks to the tacky feel after applying this primer, it did make my foundation adhere better and a little bit of dew showed through, which I personally love.


Now the downside is the price, if you’re on a tight budget then look away. This primer costs £32 for 30ml. To me that is super pricey for a primer and I don’t usually have the budget. Luckily I had a discount code at the time so it wasn’t so bad but I will be using this sparingly and not every day just to make it last. I will literally cry when it runs out! You can find it here.
