BECCA Backlight Priming Filter Primer Review

I finally bought it - the 
BECCA Backlight Priming Filter
Primer.

Do I love it?
At first I did!
And I still do really like it.

I love that it makes my face look
extremely luminous.
As you can see here - So luminous!

I love the smell.

I love that it feels moisturizing.

I love that there is a lottttt of it, and one pump goes
a long way.

The thing I don't love about it is that it doesn't seem
to keep my blush and bronzer on while at work for 8 hours like
the Smashbox primer did.

Or did it?

Now that I think about it, I can't remember if my 
bronzer and blush stayed on throughout the full work
day a week ago (before I bought the BECCA primer).
Am I being overly picky?

I MUST PUT IT TO THE TEST.

Channeling my inner science class 5th grader:
I devise up a question, hypothesis, a list of products used, a detailed summary
of the experiement, and the results.

Question:
Does the Smashbox Primer help hold the makeup on my face longer than
the BECCA Primer?

Hypothesis:
After putting Primer 1 on the right side of my face, and Primer 2 on the left side
of my face, I will work a full day. I believe the bronzer and blush will stay
better on the side of my face that Primer 2 was used on.

Products used:
BECCA Primer: Primer 1
Smashbox Primer: Primer 2
Bronzer
Blush

Experiment

video

Yes... The video quality is shitty but
to upload it to blogger without uploading it
to Youtube first - it had to be a much smaller
file. Quality was the sacrifice I had to make.

BUT - primer goes on somewhat clear,
so you aren't missing much.


Conclusion
After 8 hours of wear, I found
that the Makeup on the left side of my face
(Primer 2: SMASHBOX) seemed to stay on better.
They both seemed to be about the same with
oil control.
End of the day pics with Daisy!


She often tries to steal the show.
JUST LIKE MAMMA TAUGHT HER!

You can tell more in this pic that the makeup on the left side is slightly more
intact.

  3. I've never tried the BECCA brand but I've always been put off by how expensive it is. Smash box definitely seems to win! Great post x

    1. I agree, I love the idea of BECCA, but not sure if the bang is worth the buck. I just ordered the Jaclyn Hill/BECCA collaboration face palette. I'm expecting great things from this - I'll keep you posted!
