Q & A

Prime Time Foundation Primer 4.4 5 72 72
One of the best primers on the market! My first experience with this primer was in one of the Get Started kits. I watched a few tutorial videos, and followed the advice to warm it by rubbing my fingers before applying. Once I put it on my skin, I targeted my oily/T-zone areas and LOVED the way it worked into my skin and outward so easily. It left my skin feeling silky smooth, and could tell a difference in how my foundation went on. I also think it helps my foundation and face makeup last longer but it is a little tough for me to tell because I have only used it with BM products so I don't know how those products would wear without it and I have been using BM finishing powders for touchups throughout the day. Either way, this primer is a must have for me and really helps you get the best of your BM products in my opinion!! 05/18/2014
Best item in my makeup/skincare collection I grew up never using a lot of makeup and always hated that when I did use makeup it faded quickly. That was when I used cheap products....then I was introduced to Bare Escentuals. The first time I used this Primer I was quickly devoted to it. My makeup stayed on all day and covered more evenly and smoothly. To me, this is a "MUST PURCHASE" item for anyone. Just try it once, bet you'll be as hooked as I am! 04/08/2014
Nice Finish Ok so i go into the store to get da starter kit. I see this and i think: Ooooo Nice! i get it, and it meets my expectations 500% Just make shore you apply a THIN layer all over your face. This cannot be overstated! THIN layer!! If you say OR NAH while reading dis theres gonna be oil and shine ALL over your face. I made that mistake once and I when I got home I look in da mirror and i'm all like: "Twinkle twinkle little star!" I mean THATS how shiny my face was. So, you've been warned!! 03/24/2014
Good primer I've found that you must prime, or foundation will just not look the same or last as long. I like this primer, although I think it might cause me to break out. I'm still investigating if the problem is with the primer or something else. I've also noticed that on some days it causes little bumps on my face to look more pronounced. In other words, the primer and I have a love hate relationship. If you have oily skin, or skin with uneven texture such as myself you might want to go with a different primer than the original. 03/20/2014
MY MUST HAVE I cannot put makeup on my face without this light, soft primer! It took me about 12 years (I am now 27) to find a product like this. This, the face wash, and the main color foundation (powder form) are the only 3 products as A MUST HAVE. The others are awesome as well - but I have found these 3 products to be a must have for all women and teens. 03/17/2014
LOVE this product! I have used bare minerals for about 3 years and have loved everything about it. I noticed this winter that I was having some dry skin and some irritation, I'm sure from the weather and the wind. I received a free sample of prime time from a purchase of foundation and I loved it! It is very light and not super oily. The added SPF also helps because I am a redhead and have fair skin. Perfect for every day and make up stays on well! 03/07/2014
Amazing! I was a bit skeptical & refused to buy this product at first. I finally went in to a shop one afternoon after purposely not wearing any makeup. I had a consultant apply the Prime Time then my normal foundation shade. The makeup looked absolutely flawless & stayed put all day. I will never apply the foundation without first using this product! 02/22/2014
Foundation glides on with ease! The Prime Time Foundation Primer is perfect! (Like I said, Bare Minerals never disappoints!) Not only does it go on satiny smooth, but it makes foundation able to glide right on to your skin. Bare Minerals just keeps impressing me more and more! 02/21/2014
Still my Favorite I still love this Primer. I love the way this feels on my skin, my makeup last much longer using this. It creates a smooth canvas to work with. 02/07/2014
A solid product I didn't want to add another step to my make up routine, but I finally decided to give in to primer. It does help create a smooth canvas for foundation and helps it last throughout the day. I definitely think it helps my makeup look better. I don't use it everyday since it's kind of expensive. The pump doesn't work very well and shoots out product. I don't think it's a MUST have, but I would definitely recommend it to those who need just a little extra help with their skin prior to make up application. 02/02/2014
