About this deal

I used to use the Becca Sheer Luminous Foundation (original version) and the Foundation Stick many years ago (back in the early 2000s when I was in college and the line was still at Nordstrom). With that being said, the Physician’s Formula primer lasts well under my foundation for a full day without breaking down strangely; it just doesn’t look quite as glowy at the end of the day. It’s often used together with ethylhexylglycerin as it nicely improves the preservative activity of phenoxyethanol.

Physician’s Formula Spotlight Illuminating Primer: Water/Eau, Dodecane, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Brassica Campestris/Aleurites Fordi Oil Copolymer, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Polymethylsilsesquioxane, Glyceryl Stearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Polyisobutene, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylene Brassylate, Panthenol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Hexylene Glycol, Peg-7 Trimethylolpropane Coconut Ether, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium Edta, Sorbitan Isostearate, Retinyl Palmitate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Tin Oxide, Tocopherol, Carmine (Ci 75470), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491), Mica, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).

Those living in South Africa, know about our current heat wave situation so I assumed, my make up was going to melt. While this does give a golden tint to your skin, I don’t think it’s a good primer and doesn’t help in prepping the texture of your skin.

It usually has to be neutralized with a base (such as sodium hydroxide) for the thickening to occur and it creates viscous, clear gels that also feel nice and non-tacky on the skin. Speaking of Becca’s highlighters, I have been really obsessed with their poured version of highlighter, it’s a cream and the shades are so pretty. A super common, medium-spreading emollient ester that gives richness to the formula and a mild feel during rubout.Visually, both primers are a champagne shade, but the Becca primer looks to be lighter when swatched heavily.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a face primer with a soft, illuminating effect that can be worn alone without foundation and is, obviously, not too tinted for us pale folks. I think if you prefer a full-on glam look and you tend to reach for full-coverage then go for the Becca primer. Although these aren’t recommended usages for this product, I have discovered that they work well, and find that finding various uses for products increases their value.

You might know licorice as a sweet treat from your childhood, but it's actually a legume that grows around the Mediterranean Sea, the Middle East, central and southern Russia. Because of this and the fear of looking like a hot mess, I have never used a luminous primer, so this recently launched Becca Backlight Priming Filter intrigued me.
