Prime Time Foundation Primer
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?
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.
I was always hesitant about using a primer because I was scared of any adverse reactions from my skin. I gave this a shot and it was great. It was pleasant to use, very silky and it doesn't feel heavy on your skin. It didn't cause any adverse reactions so I am grateful and very happy with this product.
This product feels great the moment you put it on. Hydrating and smooth. (Beware, make sure it dries before putting on make up). My only problem is that I don't notice an improvement between using it and not. I'm not sure its worth the price.
I really wanted to love this.
This primer felt so nice on my skin. I really wanted to love this but it really doesn't help diminish the appearance of my wrinkles and large pores at all. I noticed no difference. What's worse? Oh well it made me break out. I have acne prone skin and large pores and I guess the silky, luxurious, balm was too much. I wash my face thoroughly and regularly so I suppose something in the mixture does not agree with my pores. So sad.
I think this is a great product, but..............
I love the primer, but will not buy it again until they change the packaging. The pump does not work after a couple of uses and I got tired of having to take it off and scrape the primer out of the bottle. I now buy another brand that comes in a tube that you can squeeze out. Much better.
Best Primer Ever
I never thought I needed to use foundation primer, but once I tried this, I realized why I should have. It creates a nice smooth canvas. Although this primer cannot eliminate the bumpiness of my blemishes, it makes them easier to hide by giving them enough moisture underneath my makeup.
I never used foundation primer....until now!!!
I had never used foundation primer until I went into my local BM boutique to have a make-under. My beauty consultant let me feel the primer before putting it on my face. It is so silky smooth and just glides on! I have noticed that it truly helps my foundation to go on more smoothly. Love it!
I love all Bare Minerals products! This primer is great. Helps your makeup go on flawlessly, makes it last throughout the day. HOWEVER, the pump is horrible. After just 4 days, my pump doesn't work! Very frustrating. Have to get the straw from the cap to scrape out the primer. I know when I can't get any more out that there will be left over in the container. Change the packaging - use a tube like the other brands do!!! The container is my only complaint. May be the one issue that will drive me to use another product.
Best primer out there
Remember ladies, a little goes a long way! Every other primer I've used has made me feel oily and I've dealt with that because of the long lasting make up. I didn't know I had an option out there that held my make up on all day and didn't make me feel greasy. I also tried the oil free option but I didn't even need it the regular one did the trick!
