Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 83 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by No More Winter Blahs!! Firstly, BE Sure to SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE your bottle (and bootie) before pumping. Secondly, BE prepared to fall in luv!!! This primer will end the winter and mid season blah's, your skin will simply look a little punched up, the same lovely long wear of your make up is still there and there isn't a day or season that this product won't work!! My BE foundation shade is Fairly Light and sometimes Fair -- no problems -- not too Gold or too yellow. HIGHLY Recommend!!! You won't be sorry!! 01/06/2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Samylee Just received this product in my last order,and can't begin to express how wonderful it is. It takes such a small amount and it makes your foundation glide on, and it DOES KEEP THE FOUNDATION IN PLACE FOR THE ENTIRE DAY! This product was a real surprise to me, because I was not sure if I wanted to order it, therefore I read the reviews and ordered it based on what most had to say about the product. So happy I did!!!! Can't believe that this product could make such a difference. It even makes your face look more radiant. Love, love this primer! Great job BareMinerals!!! 07/24/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible! I had read reviews from several sources recommending this primer, but it's hard to know what is hype and what is performance. I tried it today and the difference it makes amazed me. The first thing I noticed is that I needed much less foundation than usual, which surprised me. But even better is the glow it gave me! I am in my 50's and my skin has not looked this youthful since I turned 40. My face looks bright and fresh and my skin looks much younger. This stuff is magic in a bottle! Thanks so much, Bare Minerals. 12/08/2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Unexpected, but Accepted So I actually bought this product on accident when I was trying to purchase my usual neutralizing primer. But after using the product several times, I am very satisfied with it; it manages to even out my skin tone and give a nice glow to my skin. However, after I use it, it makes my skin feel a bit oily. Now normally I don't have oily skin, so maybe I am just adjusting to the product, but for now, it makes me feel like my face is wet for around 15 minutes after I apply it. I would still highly suggest this product to a friend. 10/24/2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Product !!! The very first time I tried this product, I loved it. I've tried the original and this brightening illuminatrice, and they both have their unique qualites. It goes on very soft & creamy. It makes a huge difference when I use it. The Mineral Veil, foundations, blushes.... they go on evenly & STAY on all day long, for the most part. It doesn't take a lot, so I can make this product go far. I do recommend this Prime Time primer to anyone that wants evenly applied, rich looking makeup on their face. 02/02/2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by too shimmery I thought I would love this, but I prefer the original Prime time. this was very shimmery, it still hold the make up very well, but you have to clean your hands very well after applying... even then shimmer may sow up where you dont want it to. 09/27/2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Needs better dispenser bottle! I purchased this once and could not get it to spray out of the bottle; only an occasional squirt. Returned to store and exchanged for another. Same problem. I have to unscrew the bottle because it simply will not squirt. Do something!! 01/03/2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comes out looking scary, goes on well The other Prime Times are clear, so when this came out a golden shade I was nervous. I am so pale I am almost colorless and seeing this shade was scary. It went on great, didn't look orange. I noticed a very slight luminous effect on my skin that may look better on a darker complected person. It primes just fine, as well as the original. I would buy it again, I like it. 10/07/2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product but does seperate This is the only Primer I've ever used and I really like it. My foundation goes on much smoother and more evenly than without and looks better too. It does separate and I always end up having to unscrew the top and try to dig some out with the tip of the tube or my finger but if you can deal with that, it's a great product. I'm used to it by now so it's just part of my routine and doesn't really bother me. If they could somehow fix this problem though, that would be great! ;-) It does seem to even my tone out a little but I still have a lot of redness to cover up so I'm thinking about trying the neutralizing primer for a change. I'll still keep a bottle of this around too though. 07/16/2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Like the other primer better Curious about this primer, I tried it the last time I needed some. I liked it at first, but it separated in the bottle. Within a couple of weeks, it came out kind of runny, even when I shook it first. Then it wouldn't come out at all. This week, I had to twist it open the top to remove the primer from the inside. It works OK, but not significantly better than the original primer, which never did this when I used it. I gave it only two stars for the dispenser; and I'll go back to the original. 06/27/2013
