I went to Ulta last Saturday and as I walked in there was a glorious display of new products!! (See my picture below) I wanted to buy everything!!! This primer definitely caught my eye. I am a HUGE lover of the BECCA Backlight Priming Filter. I know this primer isn’t for everyone but I have dry skin and the Becca primer has been awesome so I figured I would try this out and let you guys know if they are similar or if it’s a dupe.
I applied this with my fingertips to a clean face. From the moment I applied it to my face, it reminded me a lot of the Becca Backlight Priming Filter. These primers don’t give your face that slick silica feeling like a smoothing/pore filling primer. It feels like a hydrating lotion with small shimmer particles in it and it gives the face a nice healthy glow. Foundation goes over this primer beautifully as well.
Is this a dupe for the Becca Backlight Priming Filter? Not exactly. If you see my picture below you will notice that the color is different. The Becca Primer is more of a peach shimmery glow and the NYX primer is a white shimmery glow. Now, with that said I feel like the formulas are very similar. And once you blend it out on the face you can’t really tell that they are different.
Great price. I love putting foundation over this for a beautiful healthy glow. It doesn’t dry out my skin.
I don’t think this will work for every skin tone because it is a white shimmer.
Pass or buy?
In my opinion I say buy, especially if you wanted to try the Becca Backlight Priming Filter.
