Prime Time Foundation Primer
I can definitely see the difference after starting to use this primer. My foundation lasts much longer than it previously did.
Helps and hurts at the same time
The primer is WONDERFUL for helping keep the makeup on all day long. The only problem is that it makes my skin break out. As soon as I stopped using it, the breakout cleared up. Since I use the foundation and mineral veil without the primer it doesn't last as long, but it gets me through the day.
Why did it take me so long to try this!?
I've always used a primer, Laura Mercier, Nars, and Benefit. None of them worked as well as this! I'm so excited how smooth this makes my skin and how nicely my makeup looks after using it! I've also tried the bareMinerals primer to reduce redness but it's not as great as the original. I've officially converted!
Absolutely a Must Have Item!!!
I have never been a make-up person but last year I went in to the store to have a makeover for our daughter's upcoming wedding. The consultant used the Primer on my face that day...so of course I purchased it along with everything else she told me I needed (I was a very easy sell that day).
Now a year later I use the Primer, Mineral Veil and mascara. That's it...my whole beauty routine...plus lip gloss.
I must admit I have been blessed with evenly colored, unblemished skin but this Primer gives your face the feel of an artist's brand new perfect palette every day. It makes your face feel as smooth as silk with no gloss or shine. I absolutely love the feel of it!
This little bottle goes a very long way so don't be scared off by the price of it either. Use it very sparingly because you can always add more but you can't take it off. Any extra is just a waste of money.
I promise you won't be disappointed with this product. If it can make somebody like me, that has gone their entire life without even powdering their nose until the age of 53, start taking the time to apply a little makeup it must be gold in a bottle!
I always ignore the primers from other make up companies but I decided to purchase this product because I liked the way it felt while applying. I didn't buy the eye primer and I'm regretting it because of how great this product works.
I can tell the difference around 3pm if I didn't apply primer in the morning. This product holds the foundation all day though! I will never run out of this product. May be the first product I add to auto ship.
Little goes a long way
I am a girl on a budget, and while I would love to use Prime Time everytime I apply my Bare Minerals... I simply just can't afford it. What I like to do is prime only the places where I need extra coverage (under eyes, over blemishes, etc.). If I prime these places then my biggest problems are taken care of and I don't have to worry that my Minerals are wearing off these problem spots. Just a little dab will cover all my problem areas making a bottle of Prime Time go an extra long way!
I love this.! I've always had problems with my makeup not staying on my face and slowly disappearing throughout the day and I found the solution. Although a bit expensive for such a tiny bottle, it really works! And i only have to use one pump. I have smile lines that a lot of people point out, mostly because I'm 18 and they're already showing ( I like to smile :D) and I've always had to reapply my foundation to cover them up. With this primer, the lines barely show and it leaves my skin super smooth and i don't have to reapply, not even once.
If I don't use Primetime under my foundation I get oily before I even get out of work. It's like a magic shield between my skin and makeup. Use it followed by mineral veil under your foundation and you won't get "dewey" at all!
I love this product. It makes my skin very smooth with makes the powder go on even and spread well. When I forget to put it on over my lotion the brush doesn't glide easily like it does when I use this product. I recommend it for everyone.
Different use for Prime Time
I was in a hurry one day and sprinkled some of the foundation in my palm, added a squirt of Prime Time, mixed them together and applied to my face with my fingers. It gives a very sheer, natural-looking finish that I love for everyday wear because sometimes I tend to be heavy handed with the brush.
