Q & A
Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer 3.6 5 50 50
Disappointed I bought this primer since a good friend of mine recommended this. She too has oily skin so I decided to try this. Sadly, this was no good for me. It applies to thick and feels heavy on my skin compared to the regular primer (which I love more). It makes my face feel the makeup rather than the feeling of wearing none. Also my skin is a lot more oily than it was before using this. 12/06/2013
Works! I got this since I have always had issues with oily skin (which is why i switch to powdered foundations) and this product does amazing things! My face feels significantly less oily at the end of the day and I am no longer "shiny" by mid-day! I gave this only 4 stars because the squirt mechanism is tricky, so you have to be careful when pumping. Also the primer has a watery feel when applied that takes some adjusting to, and it drys really quickly, meaning you have to spread fast to get everything covered!!! Over all it's a great product that I'll definitely be getting again! 10/17/2013
Great product! Goes on so silky! Instantly mattifies skin and doesn't quit! It also smoothes your face so you are ready for makeup application and keeps makeup in place all day and night! Love! Works great combined with the loose foundation, concealer, and mineral veil! 10/14/2013
Not a true oil control primer I wish I could say that I loved this product. Like MANY other foundation primers, this contains dimethicone. Dimethicone is one of the worst things you can put on your face if you have oily skin (or don't have oily skin for that matter!). After a few hours, your face will turn into a real-life slip-n-slide. The foundation does absolutely look gorgeous with initial application, but is not a great all-day looking great situation to be in. For oily skin, look for WATER based primers. 09/22/2013
A Miracle I have never been able to find products to control the oily skin on my face, until this one. I apply it especially in my T Zone and the oil is gone! I have a spare foundation waiting in my drawer but I may just forget I have it and get the oil control foundation as well. THANK YOU... 08/27/2013
Love this product! This is my new fave! I have always been scared of primers due to my oily acne proned skin. This product is every light weight and helps to absorb oil and makes your BE foundation look flawless and stay on all day! I just took my makeup off after wearing it for 14 hours straight and My skin still looked fresh and oil free. 07/10/2013
New Prime Time Formula Disappointed in the new formula of the regular Prime Time. I loved it before. It's too creamy and is now more like the $8 brand I bought a while back. I may as well get the cheap brand if this stays the same. I hated the oil control formula, the salesperson hesitated to sell it to me and I should have taken the hint. I never used it. Should have brought it back. 07/02/2013
Coverage! I'm actually a little shocked at how many negative reviews this product has. I have had a mostly positive experience and quite enjoy this primer. I have only ever used the newer formula so I can't compare the way some other users have. My skin is on the oily side and this primer keeps it at bay for much longer than without. I put 1-2 pumps on and let it dry for a minute before applying my foundation. I have used both the Original and the Matte versions and have had great results. I find that my coverage is much better when using this primer, especially with Matte, who gives me a bit of trouble occasionally. I top it off with Mineral Veil and my complexion looks beautiful. 05/20/2013
YAY! i finally found a primer that works perfectly for me! its not greasy, solid, and keeps my skin from oil and that awful shine you get mid-day! plus makes my foundation flawless! 04/01/2013
I will not be using this product I am sad to say that this product does not work for me. I have worn the Bare Minerals Original Foundation (loose) for a little over a year now. I love the easy, natural looking coverage. I have very oily skin, and thought that this primer would help the foundation to look even better. I purchased this from an Ulta store and used it twice. Both times, I felt that the foundation did not go on very well on top of the primer (there was not good coverage at all). I have put the foundation on top of a moisturizer in the past and it went on MUCH better. Today I was in an Ulta store in a different town, and got to talking with an employee about my experience. She said many customers have had the same complaint, and she explained that the primer is silicone-based rather than water-based. The primer provides a silky smooth face, but for liquid foundation. With the silicone-based primer and the loose powder foundation - well, she explained that the loose powder just falls off. NO WONDER I kept thinking that the coverage was not that great. I never would have known that if she had not told me. I will not be using this product again. 03/26/2013
