Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer
I love this product!
I am new to Bare Minerals, so I went to the mall to try the products. I have to say that Imam very impressed with the results!! Especially the neutralizing primer. I was a little hesitant at first when I saw the tint was yellow but it didn't even show after it was applied. I have a few red areas normally and as soon as the BM consultant applied this product my redness disappeared!! I am definitely buying this product again. Love it!!
Decent primer, though not necessarily neutralizing
I like the original primer, but thought perhaps I could reduce (or eliminate) the concealer process by using this "neutralizing" primer. So I got myself a bottle. Here's what I have found:
1. It is a bit thicker than the original. When I apply it, it feels a bit more like moisturizer than the original primer. Not sure if it moisturizes, but seems to me it takes a bit longer to dry than the original. On the other hand, even the original formula takes longer to dry in the hot weather.
2. It is yellow in color, not skin-yellow, more bright, neon-ish yellow. But when the primer is rubbed into the skin, the yellow color pretty much disappears. In terms of covering up anything, this primer doesn't do much for me that I can tell. Perhaps it works better on a really light skinned person. (I wear Ready Golden Medium).
3. My bottle of original primer smells faintly of vaseline to me (which I don't mind); this neutralizing primer, however, emits no smell. In my experience, if there is an unpleasant smell, the cosmetic product may be rancid. So I wouldn't avoid this primer because it may smell bad--it doesn't (or shouldn't).
This is the greatest primer ever. I have fair skin with pink cheeks and they get red very easily with any change in temperature, having a drink, emotion, etc. This is the ONLY thing I have ever found to neutralize the red! No need to layer on multiple layers of foundation, concealer and powder anymore. Just this and a swoop of the Ready foundation over the primer and it lasts all day. It even has enough coverage to wear just the primer out to the grocery store or to run errands. Love it!
Works like a dream!
Tried this primer for the first time a few months ago. Can't imagine running out. My skin looks and feels great. Foundation stays put all day, amazing on combination skin. Hardly a touch up needed. Would recommend to everyone.
Prime Time foundation Primer
I love this product - the way it makes my skin feel so silky and the difference it makes with my makeup staying so fresh much longer. But, I'm very disappointed in the fact that after a short time, the bottle quit dispensing and upon opening the lid, I found that the product had congealed in the bottle and obviously a great deal wasted! Would be glad to recommend to my friends if that defect could be resolved.
A Must Have!
This product is well worth the money. Upon application you instantly see how the product illuminating your face. It does take a few minutes to neutralize any redness you may have. I notice after about 2 minutes it tones down any blemishes I may have or ruddiness around my nose. But the best thing about this product is it provides medium coverage so I am using less of the foundation to get that flawless look!
What a difference!
First of all, I have never written a review, but I had to because this product is amazing. I've been using Bare Minerals for years, started using the Ready Foundation when it came out and used the original Prime Time Primer. Went to the Bare Minerals store the other day and the salesperson suggested I try the new Prime Time Neutralizing Primer. I have a lot of redness on my face with a few flaky areas. What a difference! Because of the new Primer, when the Ready Foundation is applied, my skin looks better than it ever has!!! And I think I use less foundation because the Primer does such a good job. I can't imagine anyone not loving this new product!
neuetralizing foundation primer~ club options
Simply amazing, love it, BUT, wish it was an option in my club, I don't understand why the newer products aren't included as options if the original products are an option.
does not neutralize redness
Yellow does not neutralize redness..green does. This product may even it out a bit but does not neutralize it. That being said, I should have read more closely to see they use yellow. I have mild rosacea and it doesn't neutralize it at all.
Helps evenout the apperance of my skin! YAY!
I was a little hesitant to buy this with a lot of reviews stating that it is different than the normal Prime Time, but it seemed that some liked it and some didn't so I gave it a try to see for myself. I love it! I love the original too and it is definitely different, yet I like the way it evened my skin out a little more than if I hadn't used it. It doesn't get rid of all the redness etc. like a foundation would, but helps even the contrasting areas so that it's not so harsh and the foundation can cover it faster. I also used a little extra on the more red areas like another reviewer mentioned. It helped me use less foundation to cover the red areas. I liked the consistency too, it's like a cream, but a silky cream. I enjoy the feel of it, maybe even better than the original. Now I'm thinking they should come out with a Jumbo Size of this one! I think I will be using this from now on!
My advice would be don't expect it to be opaque like a foundation. Basically it's a sheer help without adding an extra step to your routine...it's in the Primer instead of having to add another something for the red areas.
