Q & A

Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer 3.6 5 50 50
Exactly what I needed! I have a very oily t-zone, and usually I can't go an hour after putting on makeup before the oil starts to show, especially on my forehead. But the primer really absorbed the oil, and I can go all day without having to worry about it. My foundation didn't smear/smudge as badly either, and it minimized my pores. This product was basically everything I wanted it to be! 08/02/2012
:-( Alas this did not work for me. It went on goopy and stayed streaky. It did not work as well as I would have hoped. Even after letting the moisturizer soak in, it still left streaks. 07/29/2012
I have struggled with oily skin my whole life, and recently I have discovered bare minerals and all it has to offer. This primer plus the Matte foundation is perfect. Before bare minerals I could go about one hour before my make up would be ruined by the oil production on my face. Now, my face can go 7 - 8 hours before I even start to notice a little oil. A little touch up fixes that right up. The primer leaves your face soft, and even. It's really a great primer, and will do wonders if you have struggled with oil production like myself. Just give it a shot, if it helps my face it'll help anyone. 07/18/2012
Didn't work for me - super oily skin I purchased this primer, along with the Get Started kit with Matte foundation, Mineral Veil and purifying cleanser. I used all products for almost 2 weeks, adding in the Exfoliating Cleanser & Deep Foaming Cleanser. After my 2 week trial, I decided to stop using everything but the Mineral Veil due to waking up to a new pimple nearly every day!! 07/12/2012
Made all the difference in the world! I am a long-time user of bare Minerals foundation, and it's the best I ever used. But recently I began taking a medication that causes my cheeks to turn red and my face to sweat profusely any time I go outside. Not even bare Minerals would stick for more than half an hour in such conditions. I was heartbroken, until I found Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer. It basically works wonders! I've worn it for several days for up to 10 hours outdoors, and I still have some on when I wash my face at night! Plus, I get tons of coverage for the bright red of my cheeks. Thanks for making such a great product at such a reasonable price. 07/06/2012
Caused my foundation to clump I purchased this because I have very oily skin and it was highly recommended in the boutique, It started out well. It went on smoothly and looked great for about an hour, then my foundation started to ball up and flake off my face. It looked awful. I tried it again the next day with the same results. I have started using the awesome normal foundation primer and use a light layer of mineral veil and get much fabulous results! 06/23/2012
I finally decided to give this a try since my skin is on the oily side. I went to the boutique and liked the feel of the primer on the back of my hand while I was there, I was tempted. Finally I bought it and I'm glad I did. The first day I used it, when I was going to wash my face that night I noticed that I really wasn't shiny at all. The same has happened for the last 2 weeks. So the formula is better and improved like they say. And I'm happy about that. 06/13/2012
Love BE, but not so much this primer... I tried the regular primer, but it wasn't matte, so gave this a try. First of all, it's rather 'slimey' to put on and it doesn't give a matte finish - it made my skin appear a little red and shiny. Also, it doesn't seem to make the BE mineral foundation last very long. Sorry BE - love all the rest of your products and your customer service is the greatest....but did not like this primer. 05/16/2012
It really works! This primer is truly a remarkable product. It makes your skin very smooth and clean feeling. I stopped having to touch up my makeup or blot my face midday. To further make sure my skin doesn't get too oily after I put the primer on I do mineral veil, matte foundation and mineral veil again. It's the perfect recipe to flawless skin. This is an excellent product that works just as is says it does! I love it! 05/15/2012
PTOCFP I have finally found an oil control Primer that is not sticky, tacky, or too tight on my face when it dries. PTOC is the perfect start to putting on my BE!! I have had it on for over 3 hours now, and just need a touch up on my nose area. Wonderful product BE! 05/04/2012
