Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer in Brightening Pearl
I love this color because its not to dark and I like it because I am a fair toned so this product helps a lot. I am not disappointed.
Very pretty primer.
I like to wear this primer alone sometimes. Because of it's pearl sheen, it looks like a subtle eye shadow already. It can be worn alone or you can go over it with your favorite eyeshadows to complete the look and get longlasting wear of our eyshadow. Great product!
a beauty must have
I love how this product keeps my eyes bright, slightly sparkly, and makes my eye color stay in place all day. It is a must have for any makeup kit! If I never purchased another bareMinerals product, I would keep coming back for this one.
After figuring out how to apply Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer in Brightening Pearl, I found my two ring fingers work best, it works wonders! It really highlights the eye. I like to mix and match my colors daily, and found that this is the perfect foundation for most of my color combinations. It lightens your base color of eye shadow powder, which for me is great! It gives a more luminescent look to the eye. It brightened the corners, and gave a more overall youthful look to the eye. It also helps the eye shadow stay put all day long. I love this primer!
Only bad thing, once it dries, there is no removing it easily. So, make sure it's where you want it, before it dries. It's not hard to remove, if it's still damp.
How did we ever live without this product!
Brightening Pearl is such a soft and delicate color. Eye shadows stay in place with no creasing for easily 18-24 hours. I like to use this color as a shadow and put a soft shade in the crease and poof, I'm ready to go. Don't know how I got along before this product came out. I have slept in this and in the morning, my eyes look like I just put my BE on. Amazing, Ladies you have to try this.
I love this just as much as the original primetime. I think it works just as well, and then it's got some shimmer going on to amp up your color too.
I like to use this under my shadow and it's lighter in color than I expected. It's very silvery and if you like to wear bronze/gold/peach colors, you might need to go a little heavier to compensate. It does do a great job brightening up the corners and eyelid. Your shadow color will stay on all day!
Love this alone as an eye brightener
I bought this to use it as a brightener for the inner corner of my eyes as well as under the brow near the outside of my eye. It works really well for that. It brightens my eye and makes it look more awake. I apply with my finger, but maybe I'll try with a brush as others have mentioned. I really love this product.
Don't get this eyelid primer unless..........
Okay so I am a recent convert to bare minerals and I must say I've Had my eyes on bare minerals since my early teen years the first time I saw an infomercial. As I grew older I never could find that foundation that was just perfect. Finally this year I bought myself a starter kit for my 22nd birthday and loved it immediately! My only complaint, my skin is on the dry side so sometimes the powder doesn't always feel 100 percent smooth after it's been applied, but it looks heavenly and my husband thinks it makes me look even more gorgeous ;-)
I have a few issues with this eyelid primer though. 1st off this pearl eyelid primer leans more towards the cool end of the color spectrum which doesn't go as well with my light Neutral-Warm complexion as I thought it would. If you have Cool skin, this color will look heavenly on you, but is you have a warm complexion I don't recommend this product at all. As for my fellow neutral girls, you may or may not want to get it depending on what clothing/ make up colors you like to wear on a regular basis.
2nd of all, the blending process is tricky so if you don't have the patience to try to figure out how to spread the product properly, then don't bother because all it will do is slow down your morning beauty regiment and give you a headache before you even have your 1st cup of coffee. The reason I have problems with the primer is because I have dry skin so the product dries extremely quickly on my skin. If you have combination to oily skin you may have better luck than I did.
Lastly, the shimmer is beautiful, but it clings to your skin like a virus. The first couple of times I applied this primer, my fingers got bathed in glitter. If nothing else, that is a testament to the incredible staying power of the makeup, but unless you are going out for a night on the town with your girlfriend's, I doubt that you are gonna want that glitter all over your hands. It takes FOREVER to scrub out! I literally washed it twice with an exfoliating hand soap, and I didn't even get most of it out until I washed it a third time!!
Over all the product is adequate and once you finally spread it, it attracts eyeshadow like a magnet including the loose powder shadow and it can be worn with other quality eyeshadows that are from other brands. It is extremely Durable. I'm not gonna lie, this primer definitely has it's undeniable benefits, but for me personally there aren't quite enough so I will probably be taking it back this upcoming week.
Great when you get it to stay on
I try not to squeeze too much out as there isn't all that much in the tube because with the original kind "a little bit goes a long way" but most of the color tends to stay on your fingers. The rep says you can apply with a brush but I don't really want to. Hopefully the eyeshadow primer works better because I bought the 5 or 6 color holiday set. I also like the old container better.
Pearl Eye Shadow Primer
Found this product suggested in a women's magazine for those days that you need eye brightening, but don't necessarily want to wear full eye shadow. It does brighten the eye area a good bit, helping cover the dark, dull areas that my aging eye lids are developing. Like to wear it every day whether I put on full makeup or not.
Useful both on lids and on dark circles
A lot of reviewers are saying that this product is hard to blend, but I find it easier to use than the original primer. Try patting it on the lids, not rubbing. I did not find the sparkle to be overwhelming, probably because I have very fair skin. My eyeshadow color was not brightened or altered by the primer. On my undereyes, I use this primer as a base for Well-rested and it looks perfect on me. This product is a dream come true and has completely changed the look of my eyes (in a very good way!). I would recommend it to anyone with fair skin, particularly if you find the Well-rested to be a little bit too yellowish or gold for your skin.
I love this primer! The skin around my eyes tends to get darker as the day goes on and this primer combats that! I was using the original eyelid primer with cultured pearl eyeshadow to keep my lids from darkening, but this makes it so much easier, just one step. A little does go a long way though. After I blend it on my lids I use the leftover shimmer on my finger and run it under my eyes to help keep my mascara from smudging. Works Great!
I love this primer. It has a little glimmer so you can wear it alone or under your shadows.
I am looking forward to trying the other eye primer products. It is great if you are in a hurry and don't have time to apply your full eye make-up routine. Sometimes I wear alone and then use a bit a mascara to finish up the look.
Good primer, good to brighten up eye area
I think this is a bit too sparkly as an everyday primer though it looks good as a quick eyecolor in a pinch. It does change the look of many of your eyecolors and it does work well as a primer but I don't like it for an everyday primer. It would work well to vamp up your eyecolors for a night out though.
I love B.E. products, especially the variety of eyeshadow colors. The problem was, because of the way my eyelids are, the color would just cake into the crease. One of the workers a B.E. suggested I try this primer. I was skeptical, but figured I'd give it a try. It works absolutely fantastic! I'm usually reapplying makeup at some point during the workday, but with this, I don't. It even looks great by itself. I'd definitely recommend it.
Bright and shiny
I like the original eyelid primer and use it everyday, but this one is quite cool too, if you want some extra glimmer. Make sure to use just a bit. It gets the job done.
I love the brightening primers, both colors. I think they look great, and really help make the eyecolors stand out. love it, love it.
I love this stuff!
I never really understood how bare minerals eyeshadow lasted before I used this. Everytime I went into the store, and saw the girls wearing it, I just couldn't understand how they got they eyeshadow to stay on. I stopped buying the eyeshadow because I was convinced it was a waste of money, and that eyeshadow primer was just a way of getting me to spend more money on something that I didnt need.
Needless to say, my last trip to BE, one of the girls told me that they have an awesome return policy and that if I try something new and I don't like it... it can go back!
Well, I love this stuff. It looks awesome by itself without eyeshadow for a little glimmer, and it intesifies all of their shadows, and they stay on ALL DAY! The only reason why I returned to BE after purchasing this, was to buy MORE eyeshadow! I love this stuff!!
b.e. makes the best eye primers
I love the original under my concealer. My concealer adheres to it. It lasts all day this way without settling into fine lines. I like the brightening with warmer makeup colors. I like this brightening pearl with cooler makeup colors. You only need the tiniest bit, so the tube will last you a very long time. It smooths out any uneveness on the lid. They can all be worn alone, they are so pretty on the lid. Your makeup will last until you take it off. These go great with the new liners, they glide on with primer under.
not the original
this is not my favorite I would return this if i hadnt thrown away the box. I miss the "pen style" on the old primer..bring it back! This primer has a sheen glow to it and it looks like eyeshadow. It changed the color of my cultured pearl eyeshadow..I prefer the non shimmery primer and it needs to go back to the pen style.. the small tube is not as easy to hold and i have to use my finger. If you do not want shimmer do not order this..I guess i ordered the wrong one thinking it would be better... not my favorite.
Soooo a few days before this product came out I purchased the regular eyelid primer because I wear eyeshadow(s) EVERYDAY. I got to try the other primer for a few days and was somewhat satisfied, but I fell IN LOVE with the new brightening primers when I saw them. It takes a little time to figure out the best way to apply it, but when you get it right it works wonders! Great by itself or to add that extra flawless look to eye shadow!
it's all in the application
i was unsure about this pearl primer at 1st,
hoping it would be similar to a shimmer eyecolor.
but it is " different" !!
took me awhile to find how to best use this .
i tried it alone all over the lid,
it wasn't what i expected, but it does
keep eyecolor on all day , if applied correctly.
it's pretty amazing .
the trick is using a brush to apply it.
i was using my finger & couldn't get it on
but with the BE eyliner brush, just get a little
on the tip & line the upper lid.
the result is just BEautiful ~
When I saw this product I was super excited, it looked nice when the girl at the BareMinerals boutique put it on her hand so I bought it. The product does not apply smoothly and is difficult to blend it kind of smears and some areas seem more intense with other areas left with little or no coverage. It also did not improve the appearance of the eyeshadow the way the original eyelid primer did.
Brightening Pearl Prime Time Eyelid Primer
It is the perfect eye primer! I do not find it necessary to add another color to just under my brow line. I am looking forward to more new products. Thanks B.E.
A Touch of Luminosity
I bought this Product but didn't use it prior to the National Make Up Artist at my Las Vegas Boutique appointment. Rachel (the national artist) used it and was the first to say, a teeny bit will work miracles. If you are the owner of dark lids, or the inner ridge near the nose, this is THE product. You can use it to even out, use as a highlighter under your brow, use it as a brighter if you feel a color isn't a "pure" as you like and also a teeny bit as the models do -- on the inner corner of your eye -- with the thin eyeline brush to achieve that brightness that everyone uses white to achieve. It's a multi tasker, keeps the shadows in place and I was SOOOO excited to see it arrived nationwide. A GREAT purchase.
Not what I was hoping for.....
I read the desciption thoroughly and went to my local dept. store who has a BE counter there- so excited to see if they had gotten this- and YEAH, they had it. The sales girl tried both of them on my hand. Tough call, but it seemed, and she agreed the "pearlish" one worked better for more fair skin tones than the more gold one. Besides w/ blonde hair- I didn't want to look like an Emmy Award! (All brassy) I took this home and used my new "pearl" one the next day. Oh- a tiny bit goes a looooong way, comes out in a rather large amount- and I hope you are good at blending..I am and even I had a hard time making this look even! I didn't think it held up nearly as well as the regular lid primer. And be careful not to get it on your lashes even the slightest touch will get it there. Sorry BE- I love you, but this one is going back.
It makes me feel so beautiful! I wear it alone mostly! Thank you so much!
Diffucult to Use
While the color is very pretty, it is hard to get this on just right. Too little looks weird; the tiniest bit too much overwhelms any eye color you put over it, and is impossible to get off if you take it a little too far, like out to the side or accidentally get a little under the eye in the corners. The only way to remove it is to wash your face and start over. I took the product to the local Bare Escentuals store, and they did not like working with it either.
I'm not big on returning things, so I threw it away. Sorry, BE. While I LOVE most of your products, this one I cannot endorse.
I love this primer as much, if not more, then the original. I am a huge fan of glimmer, glitter and this provides a boost to my normal every day colors, even changing my matte eye shadows into new colors. Its not for everyone, if you don't like shimmer, don't waste your time, the original formula works just fine for that. If you want to double your eye shadow color collection, get this!
