Prime Time Foundation Primer 4.4 5 69 69
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
WOW!!! I have never used a primer before. This is amazing stuff!! Put on before your foundation for amazing smooth face. Foundation goes on flawlessly. Sometimes I forget to put it on and I notice right away that my makeup doesn't look as good. I don't think this was made 'remove lines and wrinkles', but, for me, it seems to 'fill them in'. I love it!!!! 01/15/2014
Silicone is not natural I love all BM products except for the primer. It contains silicone, which is not natural. I thought BM products were supposed to contain natural ingredients. The reason I use BM makeup is because it does not contain silicone. I cant find other foundations out there that don't contain silicone, so this was exciting to find out that BM makeup has like 4 ingredients. My skin is oily and acne prone, so silicone is a major no-no for my skin. I hope they come out with a silicone free primer soon!! Does anyone else have problems with silicone? 12/03/2013
Prime Time Foundation Primer I didn't use foundation primer until recently, when I got a sample of this with a purchase. I thought that with my oily skin, using a primer would only exacerbate the issue. However, I was so wrong! The primer feels velvety, fills in my pores, and creates a smooth canvas for my foundation. It does feel a little oily sometimes (for my skin), but really helps my makeup last all day while still looking flawless. If you love having flawless-looking skin all day, then try this primer! The only thing I don't like is the pump; I prefer the tube because it helps to get all the product out (with the pump you have to open it up sometimes to get the product). Tip: Make sure the primer is completely dry before you apply foundation - 60 to 90 seconds after applying it should be dry. This ensures that the foundation does not get cakey, and goes on flawlessly. 11/27/2013
