Q & A

Prime Time Eyelid Primer 4.7 5 128 128
It simply............. WORKS! A thin layer is all that's needed and your shadow will stay on all day with NO creasing. Primer goes on smoothly and dries quickly to a very smooth & matte finish, making shadow application easy. TIP: Apply very carefully, making sure to ONLY get the primer on your eyelids! example: if you touch the bridge of your nose with primer on your finger, it will look "ashy" and "cakey" when you put foundation or well rested on in that spot because the minerals will cling to the primer. 01/01/2012
Great product that actually works! 12/27/2011
Keeps Eye Make-up even ALL DAY! I was a skeptic when the BE store clerk suggested Prime Time Primer. I've used primers before and found they would get cracked or crumbly throughout the day. The bareMinerals Prime Time Primer is soft and smooth. A little bit goes a long way. I wish there was a cleaner way to apply it - but oh well! I like that it keeps my eye color in place. I don't get eye-color creasing anymore. It also adds a nice dimension of shade, shine, and color underneath your base eye color. I'm eager to try some different shades! 12/21/2011
BE Eyeshadow Stays on fresh through out the day GREAT BUY!!! BE eyeshadow Stays on fresh throughout the day with this primer!!!! 12/19/2011
Wow! Just... Wow! This product is amazing! I have super oily eyelids and rarely used eyeshadow because it would end up in my creases and down in the outer corners of my eyes, which would cause stinging and irritation (not good when you wear contact lenses!). Even my mascara would end up leaving a funky black arch on my upper eyelid, right underneath my brows. Embarassing!! The first time that I used this primer, I was blown away. I even slept in my makeup and the next morning, it still looked like I had just put it on! I never wear eyeshadow without it now! And thank you for changing the packaging! Nothing like putting the primer on one eye and then realizing that I didn't have any left to put on the other eye! Thank you for an outstanding primer (and at a reasonable price too!) 12/15/2011
Every BE user should have this! Don't delay! I waited awhile to buy this because I thought it wouldn't make a big difference in how my eye shadow applied onto my eyes & that I didn't need additional staying power. Boy was I wrong! When using this I don't have to apply as much eye shadow (as I did without the primer) to get the desired look. So now I will get additional uses out of my fave eye shadows - SCORE! Before I tried the Primer I didn't think my eye shadow faded throughout the day so I did an experiment. I applied the exact same eye look with and without the Primer. There was a huge difference at the end of the day! Without the Primer the colors became more muted as the day went on, but with the Primer the colors looked as fresh & true to form as when I first applied them. Another plus, since this goes on sheer it doesn't interfere with any of the eye shadows at all. Also, you only have to use a small amount to cover the entire eyelid so this tube lasts a long time. This product is a no-brainer necessity! 12/02/2011
Great Product! I really love this product I don't wear eyeshadow with out it!! I used all the top brands and didn't find one that helped me and my oily eyelids and I came upon this one and it worked amazingly this product keeps my eyemake looking great all day long with no horrible creases. 11/23/2011
Great Primer This primer keeps my eyeshadow looking fresh all day long. No creases at all either. Highly recommended! 11/21/2011
FANTASTIC I have never been so impressed by a product. Over the years I found that my skin had become blemished. After using this product for just a few weeks to cover the imperfections around my eye lids, the imperfections vanished. I found the skin was smoother and brighter than it had been for years. I will be coming back again and again for this product as I have done with the Bare Escentuals line since 2003. Thank you for creating a line of skin care that I can count on! 11/15/2011
This is some great stuff! I have been using this stuff for years and I love it! It has the staying power that's just perfect! I recently used it to do some foiling for Halloween and I almost had to scrub the shadow off! It would not come off for a while, and it proved how great the stuff is. 11/03/2011
Too pricey for small tube/packaging I'm not giving a negative review on the formula. The formula is excellent and has great staying power, but it is the amount of ounces of the tube that is not so good. $18 for a 0.1 ounce tube is outrageous. Imo, it's too pricey for a tiny tube. P. S. I'm not to impressed with the repackaging either. I don't like the idea of using your finger to apply eyelid primer. I've also used the tapered shadow brush, and bristles get a little rough when you apply the primer with this brush. Our eyes are delicate, especially under-eye area. It would be nice to have a special applicator or a detachable soft, hydrating brush as the primer applicator for the eyelid primer packaging. If possible, I hope the packaging for this product can be revised for the better. 10/30/2011
Makes a great concealer, too! I have very oily eyelids and this holds my shadow all day. I was so impressed I decided to try it on a little spot I was trying to conceal near the corner of my mouth, where concealer would get worn off during the day. I have aging skin so I try to use a light hand with foundation especially around my mouth and eyes. I put a little on on after my Bare Minerals foundation, then dabbed a little more foundation on with a small brush. Magic! The spot disappeared and the cover up stayed all day! 10/22/2011
Wearing Eye Shadow Again This really works. It has me buying eye shadow again as it will actually stay when I use this. The new designed tube is good too. The old applicator was nice but you couldn't tell when it was about out and sometimes too much came out. I just use a pinky finger. Perfect. 10/19/2011
This is my fave of all the eye primers It goes on invisible and holds my eyeshadow all day without any creasing! When I get home from work, my eye makeup still looks flawless which is great if I don't have time to refresh it and have to run to meet up with someone. 09/22/2011
Simply the BEst This eye primer I absolutely can not live without. I use to have oily eyelids and had to touch up my eye makeup every two hours. Now I use BE eye primer, a tiny bit & let it dry, then apply my eye makeup. Twelve hours later with no touch-ups at all, my eye makeup & liner look as fresh & perfect as I just put it on. I HIGHLY recomend this product. 08/07/2011
love this stuff! Purchased this eyelid primer, not expecting much. Wow was I wrong, this stuff is awesome! I have combo skin and usually like to wear eyeshadow but would find that at the end of the day my eyeshadow would be in the crease of my eyes. The first day I used BE eyelid primer I was amazed, I worked an 12 hour shift ,even went for a 30 min walk 99° degree weather. My eyeshadow had not creased..it had stayed just as I had placed it that morning. I will never go back to just wearing eyeshadow alone..I love this stuff! 07/27/2011
Love it! I've tried other eye primers but this is my favorite. It helps keep the eyeshadow in place all day and prevents creasing. I usually work about 9-10 hours a day and my eyeshadow looks great! 07/14/2011
Creates a perfect eyelid canvas! This product does everything it says it does in it's description! I apply this primer from lashline to brow..it's great to wear by itself when I'm in a hurry! Just apply some eyeliner & a quick application of mascara! It also allows BE's eyecolor to remain on your eyelid all day long! I had a huge problem with well-rested fading throughout the day..not anymore! This extra step is worth it! You won't be disappointed! 06/19/2011
I have never come across an eye primer with this kind of staying power. It's like, eye makeup glue. It won't come off for anything. Seriously, I can put this on at 8am in the morning and it will look exactly the same, exactly as vibrant and strong as when I put it on the morning when I take it off at like midnight that night. Seriously, it's amazing. Ah may zing. If you want to keep your eye makeup on for any extended period, you'll love this. It's also great to wear alone if your eye lids get greasy throughout the day. 06/10/2011
Best one yet! Really like this eyelid primer. It is creamy and I did not have a wrinkly look on my eyelids halfway through the day. I also have the other eyelid primer that has a shimmer to it - but I prefer this one. 06/09/2011
Love it! I tried the eyelid primer today, and it is wonderful! It was 97 degrees here, and I don't glow, I sweat, and my eye color did not crease at all! Thank you Leslie! 06/08/2011
I have been using the old primer for a few years now and absolutely loved it. I just bought this new kind and absolutely hate it! It is such a disappointment... It makes my eyeshadow look a little dull and the color is off. It also does not help my eye shadow stay on at all and the new bottle is not good either. Please bring back the old primer I've look everywhere and can't find any, don't waste your money on this I'm so upset I did. 06/07/2011
No more creased eye shadow This eyelid primer is amazing. Your lid will not smudge or all go into the crease (like mine used to do), even if you sleep in it. (I tried it as an experiment.) 06/05/2011
No Longer a Skeptic I loved BE eye color, but I had to reapply often. This solved it! I was wary, because previous primers of other brands often creased or changed the properties of the eye color. Not this product....it has never creased, it keeps the BE eye color true to its properties and the color stays where you applied it. One hint...it does change the way in which you apply your color, so it takes a little more practice and it does require a little bit more color when applying. However, the effects are unbelievable! Thank you BE! 05/30/2011
I have oily skin and always had creasing on my eyelids so hardly wore shadow on my eyes. Now, I can't wait to pick out colors each day. This primer is awesome and I my shadow stays on all day with no creasing at all. I don't know how you did it, but thanks BE! 05/26/2011
Lengthens staying power of ANY eyecolor This works great with BE colors but if you're not ready to switch over completely to BE, this works for any eye shadow. This really helps with the staying power of any eyecolor. It also doesn't really change the color of the eyecolor which is nice. 05/24/2011
great product - bad packaging I have been using this primer for two years now and I love it, BUT the packaging was changed recently and the new packaging wastes the primer. It is really difficult to get the primer out of the tube and I consistently squeeze too much out because it is so hard to control. I waste so much of the primer this way, which is incredibly irritating. I like the old packing better. 05/22/2011
Absolutely amazing and I can't live without it !! 05/05/2011
MUST HAVE! Awesome. Keeps shadow and eye-liner from smudging and moisturizes the eye area. I went one day without it, and my eye-liner, especially around the bottom of my eye, smudged all over my lower lid. 04/30/2011
End eyeshadow crease forever I have a sample tube of this and I will never be without it again. Once applied eyeshadow goes on easier, and I never have the crease anymore. 04/30/2011
