Becca Cosmetics First Light Priming Filter Face Primer Review
If you’ve heard of Becca Cosmetics, you’ll know they are known for their highlighters and primers and the Becca Cosmetics First Light Priming Filter Face Primer is one of their best sellers. The powdered highlighters were the first on the scene that have tremendous colour pay off with their ethereal glows.
Becca has since expanded their line focusing on fuller coverage foundation and concealer but their highlighters still take the cake.
The Becca Cosmetics First Light Priming Filter Face Primer is a way to get a healthy glow without relying too much on powder highlighters because the glow comes from under the makeup.
From this photo, you can see that I’m wearing the Becca Cosmetics First Light Priming Filter Face Primer under my makeup with minimal additional highlight.
I have purchased this product from Becca two times already! I would say that makes it a win in my books!
However, let’s get into the official Becca Cosmetics First Light Primer Review :
The Packaging – The First Light Primer comes in a glass tube. I find that it looks sleek on my shelf – perfect for photographing for Instagram and those “shelfies”. If you find this packaging too hard to travel with, the good folks at Sephora created a mini version of the First Light Primer in an affordable tube. *Hint: This is perfect to buy if you’re not ready to commit to the full size.*
The Application – The Becca Cosmetics First Light Primer smells a bit lemony. Some of the reviews on Sephora say that it smells like lemon pledge – not exactly. It has a light airy lemon scent which goes away upon application.
One pump is all you need. Make sure you massage evenly into skin or you’ll still see remnants of purple which isn’t cool. However, this product is always smooth and has never separated for me. It does melt in nicely and retain the dewy glow.
Another thought while doing this Becca Cosmetics First Light Primer Review is that you can totally wear it on its own! In the summer months, I’m less inclined to used a medium coverage foundation or any at all! I tend to use the Becca primer with some concealer under eyes and anywhere I spot some redness. This way, my freckles peep through and it’s a really soft no makeup makeup look.
The Verdict – Since you can wear the Becca First Light Primer alone or with a foundation for the perfect natural glow and highlight, I would say this is a MUST HAVE in your makeup kit for as long as Becca keeps making this product.
3/3 for all points listed above and considering I’m on my second full size bottle!
