Prime Time Foundation Primer
My daughter in law introduced me to Prime Time Primer and I do love it. Your face feels wonderfully smooth after applying. When used in conjunction with other Bare Essentials powder and blush it gives a great look. My only disappointment has been the pump on the Primer quit working after less than 30 days. Otherwise, I would highly recommend the product.
Great addition for older skin!!
I have used Bare Minerals for quite some time, but noticed as my skin matured that it wasn't settling quite the same way on my skin. One of the consultants in the BE store suggested trying this primer, and I am deeply thankful to her. I actually tried two steps: I increased my moisturizer a bit this winter (my skin is drier this year than ever before) and added the primer before putting on my makeup. What a difference it has made!! This stuff makes my skin feel like silk. My BE makeup goes on very smoothly and looks fresh all day. I get a lot of compliments that I have such nice skin, especially for my age, and I am glad to have a makeup that keeps my complexion looking light, fresh and luminous. Definitely try the Foundation Primer; it makes a big difference!
Senior ladies need this
I'm 70 years old & new to primers. Never knew they existed. But I found this to be a must. A moisturizer leaves my skin moist & it grabs the powder. The primer gives a smooth slightly slick finish that the foundation is evenly attracted to. It also helps the foundation swim over wrinkles & creases.
In the beginning I used too much. Now I squeeze out a bit slightly larger than a kitchen match's head on one index finger. Then rub my two index fingertips together. Finally touch them on mid forehead, next to my nose, my chin, & on the side of my face in front my ears. Then go back and spread from all the places you touched. I get a even, smooth coat that's perfect for the foundation.
I just bought the jumbo container & am pleased at the bargain.
Overall a Good Primer
Lately, I have been trying different brands of primers and moisturizers (Philosophy's Hope in a Jar included#. BE's Prime Time Foundation Primer seems to work the best for my dry and oily skin. The other brands I have tried seem to set into my fine lines and wrinkles. Prime Time evens out my flaws and dry skin. It also helps my makeup stay on longer. If I go a day without putting this on before my makeup, I can tell by the end of the night #my makeup will look like its almost melting off due to my oily skin). When using this product, my makeup stays firm and intact throughout the whole day. Didn't give 5 stars because I want to try other BE products to see if I can find something that works even better for my skin.
New version is not improved
I have used the Foundation Primer for sometime and have loved it until I purchased the new improved version. It appears to be a watery solution as opposed to the smooth texture I was used to. It does not go on well and really doesn't help with making the foundation application smooth.
Bring back the old version! Much better product.
Good for makeup.. bad for skin
This product makes my makeup look SO good. Unfortunately I bought this on Wednesday and by Saturday I woke up and saw it made me break out like crazy! I had a feeling it might because of the way it feels...it's quite oily feeling. The last primer I used felt more like a powder after putting it on and that seemed better for my face as far as breaking out goes, but didn't do much for helping my makeup look better. Guess I will need to keep looking for something in between the two.
Not a bad primer. I only give it 4 stars because I think there are other primers out there that give a more amazing flawless foundation look than this primer.
super smooth skin!!
This and bareminerals together is a miricle on my skin!! This primer controls some oil and smoothes right over my dry spots! Its super silky feeling and u need the smallest amount ever ! My foundation will last at least twice as long with it!! This does not break me out at all! This product will forever be on my vanity! Must try it!!
Can't Go Without It!
Due to severe oily skin and acne, I had a lot of really big enlarged pores on both sides of my nose, and I have a couple of "pits" from acne that turned bad in my teen years. I always hated how makeup settled into these places, but with this product, I get that smooth air-brushed finish. I absolutely love the silky feel of the product and the results I get.
One thing I will mention is I recently saw a video on Facebook where the Global Education Director (I think was her title) said something about rubbing the product between your fingers to warm it up before applying it. I would say I've never done that, but what I do is put one pump on my finger and dot it on my face, let it sit a few minutes, and then go back and smooth it over my entire face, which is probably the same thing as what she's doing. My product works fabulous :)
Prime Time Foundation Primer
I have been using this product for quite a few years. It is one of the best and makes my skin feel so good and ready for the foundation. Would not trade this for anything. I just love, love, love it.
