Becca’s Newest Primer, Becca Velvet Blurring Primer Perfecting Base Apricot Haze ($38) is supposed to create a long lasting, airbrushed finish for your complexion by instantly blurring pores, fine lines and imperfections. I love Becca’s products, and have the other two Primers in their collection Becca’s First Light Primer, and Becca’s Backlight Priming Filter ($38 Each). What Makes This new primer the Ultimate Primer? Or do the three primers do pretty much the same thing?
Becca’s First Light Primer erases “bad face day” from your face, fixing fatigued, dull, dehydrated, puffy skin and fine lines to make your skin fresh, awake and hydrated. It is an instant complexion refresh. Becca’s Back Light Priming Filter diffuses a soft-focus instant filter to your complexion, using filtering luminescent pearls that create radiance, which gives you an all-over luminous glow. Becca’s Velvet Blurring Primer Perfecting Base Apricot Haze uses pore blurring powders that float over the skin in to diffuse light, which blurs pores, fine lines and imperfections, and leaves the skin smooth, velvety with an airbrushed finish.
The formula is brightening and lightweight. It has an apricot hued color. To get a velvety, smooth, soft-focus finish, pore-blurring powders that “float” over the skin are what diffuses the light. The formula is also infused with sodium hyaluronate to help keep the skin hydrated. It has antioxidant-rich vitamins C and E . It does not contain oils of any sort. It works on all skin tones and all skin types.
The bottle feels like smooth rubber, is simple and has a silver Becca lid. The applicator is an easy pump mechanism, so you don’t waste any of the product. The lid locks down onto the bottle, so nothing can disturb the pump from pumping when you do not want it to. It is easy to travel with, and you are guaranteed not to arrive with a lotion mess!
The Apricot Haze Hue comes out of the bottle a liquid. It absorbs quickly into the skin, making your pores disappear with a soft, powdery finish. The peachy apricot shade disappears when it goes on your skin.
It looks like a velvety smooth second skin. It works really well to blur your skin’s complexion, smooth it out, and it does look airbrushed. Your makeup will glide on more evenly, and smoother. Your skin will feel and look smoother. This is the Ultimate Primer from Becca when you want to have a blurred, airbrushed look. If you want to fix a “bad face day”, which we all have occasionally, I would reach for the Becca First Light Primer, and if you want to blur your imperfections underneath a luminous radiance, (and their are times we all would like to look radiant) then I would go with the Backlight Priming Filter in the line. All of the primers do different jobs, and they do them well. It just depends on what you are looking for at that moment.
But, back to the Velvet Blurring Primer, you can apply it as a primer to clean, dry skin. Wear it alone as a complexion blurring perfector. And, if you apply it after a moisturizer, let the moisturizer totally absorb into your skin before applying the primer. And I’ll see in in the comment section if you have any questions about whatever!!!
You are Awesome!
