BECCA Backlight Primer has not surprisingly become one of this seasons products that I just adore the most! I use it under my makeup to impart a slight amount of golden sheen that looks beautiful in photos and has changed the whole makeup game for me. As a gal on the hunt for the perfect golden glow I knew there was going to be something different about this primer….something special!
It is marketed as a ‘luminous light weight primer’ which creates a smooth canvas while at the same time imparting a ‘glow from within’. From first unboxing it felt luxurious,the bottle felt expensive/heavy and heavily scented. I love the pump which imparts only the perfect amount for each application and never any more.
The texture is a lightweight whipped cream formula with the colour mix of a neutral golden beige that will suit most/all skin tones. It applies like a dream and smooths out imperfections/pores/ fine lines and imparts a luminescent glow that is never oily or shimmery. Upon first application I felt the texture was like an addition to my skincare routine as it made my skin feel soft and refreshed before my makeup application.
Now for a girl who has a combination/oily skin type it did not break me out nor did it make me appear any oiler or create any irritation on my skin. I am one who enjoy a golden glow and a big lover of the Charlotte Tilbury Wonder Glow primer which is similar in finish but less golden in colour. Dry skin types will absolutely appreciate this because it will impart a radiance that your skin will thank you for, now if you have acne/oily skin and are thinking about this primer I would suggest asking for a sample at your BECCA counter to test it for yourself to make sure you are comfortable with the amount of glow it gives as it does not leave a matte finish at all.
