BECCA First Light Primer Filter and Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter: Review

Hey! Recently, I bought my first ever BECCA products in the form of the Wake Up Call Kit, which includes 15 ML of the First Light Primer Filter and 5 ML of the Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter in the shade Moonstone, for just €15,30 (sold out at Douglas at the moment :[ ) or $15. Thought it would be a good deal. But is it actually? Keep reading to find out! 🙂

First I want to focus on the primer. If you would buy the First Light Priming Filter normally you would pay €34,68  or $38 for 30 ML. This is a bit weird as it means that it is more expensive to get 30 ML of just the primer than buying the Wake Up Call Kit twice, which in total is also 30 ML of product and then you would also have the liquid highlighter.

The formula of the primer has a pale purple colour and has a fresh and lemony scent,  which I really like.

The primer promises to give you a hydrated and healthy looking skin, while making your makeup last all day. When you apply the primer it sinks in quickly and makes your skin look very glowy. After applying foundation the glow disappears a bit and instead it makes you skin look really healthy. Additionally, when I use this primer my makeup actually stays beautiful for the rest of the day! However, as you might know my skin can get quite dry and therefore this primer is not hydrating enough for me on some days. When my skin needs a bit of extra moisturizer I like to combine this primer with my all -time favourite primer namely, the Hangover Primer by Too Faced. Other than that, I really really like the First Light Primer by BECCA!!!

Healthy glowy skin ❤

Then there is the Shimmering Skin Perfector Liquid Highlighter in the shade Moonstone. If you would buy 15 ML of this product you would pay €16,32 ( €38,76 for 50 ML) or $41 for 50 ML (for some reason they don’t have a smaller size on the BECCA website).

The shade moonstone can be described as a pale gold. And long story short, I am a fan of pressed powder highlights, nevertheless I adore this product!


The one thing that some people might not like about this product is that once blended in it creates a “glow from within look” as they prefer a more dramatic highlight, which I understand. I love to apply this highlighter on my cupid’s bow and the tip of my nose to finish off my makeup, however for my cheeks I prefer to use a more intense highlight.  Other than that, I love it!

I am really happy with both BECCA Cosmetics products! And now I really want to get one of their pressed powder highlighters! Do you own something by BECCA? If so which product? And what are your thoughts on it?

Love Life,
