Prime Time Eyelid Primer
I have worn bare minerals for over 4 years now but never really wore the eye shadows b/c they seemed to wear off after a while so I decided to purchase this, and let me tell you, this works amazing!!! My eye shadow is the same from when I put it on to when I wake up the next morning! It even lasted thru several hours of tears! I will never be without this again!
My favorite BE product ever
I first encountered this great product when I bought Bare Escentuals' Tutorials: Intro to Eyes about 2 years ago and I have continued to use it daily since then. It smooths and calms the eyelids and stays on all day. I wear it often without eye shadow, because it brightens my eyes and prevents the oily eyelid effect I often get later in the afternoon. I love how it keeps eyeshadow fresh and bright. It creates the perfect surface for any eye colors or liners whether you use Bare Escentuals or other brands. If you do a dramatic look like foiling or the cat eye, you don't have to worry about it wearing off or smearing. And there's no funny feel to it, like some other products that are stiffening or greasy. It's great for sensitive skin. And a little tiny dab goes a long way. I even use a little dab under my eyes, to cover dark circles and prepare my skin for concealer. It helps keep eye liner put. I highly recommend it!
The prime time primer for the eyes is the very best!!! I have very oily eyelids and it was such a pain to see my eye shadow get clunky and wear off by midday. Now with just a tiny amount of primer, my shadow looks fresh and stays in place until i wash it off. Now I'm wanting to try the brightener primer next!
I love this product! It really works...my eyeshadow does not crease!
Can't live without this!
I LOVE this primer. Before becoming a total BE addict I used a cream shadow in a pale pale pink in place of a primer. I got this as a sample (I think) and ended up buying it the same day I tried it! It goes on beautifully sheer and gives great staying power to my eye colors.
Here is how I multitask with it:
1. All over eye primer (duh)
2. Under eye concealer, sometimes with a TOUCH of Well Rested over for REALLY dark circles
3. As a LIP primer! I do have the Lip Rev-ver Upper, and I apply this OVER it. It helps liners and glosses stay put (when not wearing an actual lipstick color) without changing the color or texture of the gloss. It also works under lipstick too, if you need a little something to grab it and make it stay!
4. As a base for concealer, when I have the occasional blemish.
5. As a primer for my mascara too! My lashes even look HEALTHIER since I started doing this!
Just remember, as with ALL BE products, a LITTLE goes a long way, and it's easier to add more than start all over!
This stuff really works!
I was doubtful about this product and I'm certainly glad I was wrong. This primer works really well. Lasts all day. Holds my eyeshadow in place and helps "pop" the colors of my eye shadows. It also keeps my eyeliner in place as well. I've always had issues with eye shadows creasing and wearing off by the end of my work day. This evens out my skin tone and applies evenly, easily and smoothly. I've used drugstore brand eye shadow and high end. Both shadows hold in place all day. This stuff is amazing! A little on the expensive side comparatively to other brands, but well worth the price! I've tried another brand that creased within minutes and additionally smeared my eyeliner into my crease. The other brand also wore off of my lids as if I never had any eyeshadow to begin with.
Love this product!!!
i have problems keeping eye shadow on cause i'm constantly rubbing my eyes, my beautiful colors didn't have a chance, but i've been using this thanks to my best friend and it's making a huge difference im really happy with the results. plus my eyes are sensitive it doesn't irritate them at all.

Like most reviews have said, this stuff is awesome at keeping your eyeshadow locked in place (no matter what the brand). Several of my non-BE wearing friends use this primer. I've tried many eyelid primers and this one is a far superior product.
**Some other ways I like to use Prime Time Eyelid Primer**
I apply a little under my eyes, both where I'd use concealer and eye liner, I use it to prime my eyelashes, and also on my eyebrows. The BE brow make-up is fantasic on it's own, but this just gives it that little extra staying power.
All in all, a very, very high quality eyelid primer.
I'm a happy customer!
This is my first day using the eyelid primer, and I must say, I'm impressed. I put my eyeshadow on at 6:30 this morning. It is now 4:30, and it looks just like it did 10 hours ago! I wasn't sure if I should have high expectations for this product or not, but I'm definitely glad I decided to give it a shot. Great stuff!
I can not believe my eyeshadow and eyeliner are still on and not smudged or creased after 10 hours! It looks like I just applied it! I am never going without this again.
I'M ONE OF MANY WITH VERY SENSITIVE SKIN, ESPECIALLY IN THE EYE AREA. I ALSO HAVE NO EYELASHES TO SPEAK OF (REALLY; BAD THYROID). THIS SWEET PRODUCT DOES AN AMAZING JOB... HOLDING THE COLOR IN PLACE, PREVENTING THE CREASING THAT USUALLY HAPPENS AFTER A FEW HOURS, AND--THE BEST PART--KEEPING MY EYELINER IN PLACE ALL DAY LONG. WHAT A DIFFERENCE NOW THAT I AM USING PRIME TIME!!
Whether it's the tube version or the click / stick version, I will never be without this product. My face has the oily "T-Zone" which makes my eyelids oily and I have battled the eyeshadow creases for years. When I started using BE products 2 years ago, this was one of the first things I tried and I am STILL in awe of this product! Eyeshadow stays put all day beautifully! Please treat yourself and give this product a try!
This is the first time I've ever invested in a primer of any kind, and I am SOLD. I tried it for the first time today w/ an eyeshadow palette I've been using for a long time. This palette has never looked so vibrant and shimmery on my eyelids before now; using the Prime Time underneath of it also boosted the staying power from 30-60 minutes to nearly 12 hours!
I love Bare Escentuals products! I have loved the eyelid primer for several years but I do not think the new eyelid primer in the tube as opposed to the stick that you wind up is as good. I bought it in the tube and it doesn't dry to the matte finish that stays all day. My oily eyelids seem to come through this new stuff by the end of the day. I have been buying the old eyelid primer wherever I can find it.
It never creases
This is the first eye primer that I have ever tried (and I tried many different brands!) that does not cause my eyes to crease by noon. I have extra oily lids so I could never used eye makeup before I found this primer. Thank you BE!!!
Prime Time Eyelid primer
This is the best eyelid primer I've ever used. Although I always prefer to use bareEscentuals eyecolors, the primer works with other brands as well. My eye makeup never smears, whether I accidently rub my eye, or if I'm crying or sweating. It always looks like it was freshly applied. I can literally sleep in my eye makeup and wake up looking like I just put it on. (I've definitely done this more than once.) If you're using bareMinerals eyecolors without this, shame on you. Get it immediately.
Love this Primer
I have oily eyelids and by mid-day will see shadow and eyeliner deminish. Always having to reapply both, but not any more. With Prime Time eyelid primer, I know my shadow and liner are going to last all day. No need to reapply. Place very light application on each eyelid and apply shadow and liner and it will look as good 8 hours later as it did when you first applied them.
Best for under the eyes.
I keep reading reviews that it gets under peoples eyes. I actually purposefully put it there. I use it as a primer, under my foundation and bisque, under my eyes. It really helps to conceal all the bad stuff that lurks under my eye area. I tried the brightening under the eye area, but nothing works under the eyes as good as this one. I prefer the brightening on the lid though. Try it, I think you will be amazed.
I wish I had this product years ago. I don't even use eye shadow with it. It keeps my eyeliner in place and my eyelids matte until I take it off. I wear this product 24-7. Love the new packaging and auto-ship. Thanks Leslie for a great product!!!
I mostly use this under my eye because I guess I get to much on the lid and I have one heck of a mess and the shadow won't come off unless you wash it off. It made it to bold of color.
The new packaging sucks and it seems like the formula may have changed too. It goes on more greasy. I loved the old stuff. Not sure why they changed it....yeah the old packaging had its problems (like how to tell when you are almost out) but at least it did the job. This isn't cutting it. I'm going to have to start shopping for a new brand.
Eye make up stays
I don't normally wear much eye makeup (besides mascara) because it would always wear off. My eye lids after a few hours would be greasy with my either the make up gone or stuck in the corners. So on a whim I just decided to try this stuff thinking it would do nothing. I could not have been more wrong! I put a little bit on before I put on the BE eye shadows (which are also incredible) in the morning and what I do stays! Nothing moves around or gets smeared and the colors stay fresh. This is a must for those who love eye color but can't get it to stay through out the day. The formula for this is truly amazing and I'm so glad I found it! But remember you only need a little bit and then your eye color will last all day. No more re-applying!
A Must Have!
I love this product. I received it as a free sample about 6 months ago. I'm not sure what I did without it. It keeps your eye make-up from sliding off during the day. I am excited that it looks like they have changed the packaging. I like the tube much better than the previous applicator. It was hard to use. Way to go Bare Escentuals!
