Review: Becca Backlight Priming Filter

I received a generous sample of Becca's new primer in a recent Sephora Play box and have been testing it thoroughly. This is a pretty good primer for special events. As you can see in the swatch, it has a lot of luminosity. Normally this would be a turn-off for me, but I found it fairly subtle when applied to the whole face and even more subtle once I put foundation on top of it. The overall effect was a slight brightening rather than serious shimmer. Texturally, it feels creamy and smooths on easily. My make-up applied more easily after using this. I did not, however, notice any improvement in wear time, which is one of the main jobs of a primer. For this alone, I probably would not buy it, because while it lasts very well through a dressy evening out, it can't stand up to the rigors of a 12-hour work day.
