Prime Time Eyelid Primer 4.7 5 119 119
Can't believe it lived without it! I received a small tester of eyelid primer in a collection I bought quite awhile ago, and just recently found it and decided to finally try it. Now, I can't believe I went for so long without it!! I have somewhat oily skin, and used to get frustrated when my eye shadow would collect in the crease by the end of the day. With the Eyelid Primer, the eye shadow stays put until I take it off--literally, it stayed in place even overnight! It makes it much easier to create interesting looks that last, and as a bonus, makes my eyes feel moisturized. I'm excited to try the tinted eyelid primers next! 09/18/2012
Brings Your Eyes and Eye Colors to Life You only need a VERY small amount of this primer. Not even a pea sized amount. Just a tiny amount. It spreads easily, goes on smooth and lasts all day. I took a flight at 5:30am and it's 10:43pm now and it has held up all day long. It's my first time trying eyelid primer EVER and I'm really impressed. It's good for making your eye colors come out and show up better on your eyes. I highly recommend this product. There are other eyelid primers, but I haven't had the experience with them so I tried the original just to try it out. It's great and it doesn't crease or clump up. Try it! It's a small bottle when you get it, but it will last a long time if you use it sparingly as it should be used. I added a photo for you all to see the size and also took the cap off in a second photo so you can see what it looks like on the inside as well. 09/06/2012
I cannot use this product. I have never been so disappointed in a BE product. When I first opened it, I could not squeeze any out of the tube with two hands. I finally got a tiny amount out, and it was not creamy, it was like lead coming out of a mechanical pencil which broke off when I touched it with a makeup brush. I messed around with a pin at the end of the tube so I could try to get some out. It comes out a little better, but it is still not good with a brush. If I use my finger, I can put some of it on. I have another Prime Time Primer in a different shade, and it is not like this. I will not buying this again. 07/22/2014
Works well I feel like this works pretty well. I can't decide if I like the 5-in-1 primer better but they both brighten. I'm not sure if I like the matte finish or not. It almost seems drying but my shadows stay all day, there are no creases, and it doesn't fade. It also doesn't get oily either. If you are traveling I would say it is the perfect item to take. It just seems very small for the cost but I do like the product. 07/18/2014
Must Have I never put on eye shadow without first applying this primer. It really helps any color POP! It lasts all day without creasing or dulling. It's great! 07/03/2014
must have!!! this little tube is the cat's meow---makes your eye shadow perform at it's utmost best. keeps it from fading and creasing. and it's easy to apply!! you only need the smallest amount, which is good cuz the tube is small!!! 07/01/2014
Works well but packaging needs work I love the product, but it is hard to get out of the tube when it gets to about half full. You end up squeezing way too much out and waste it. You can't cut the end off the tube to get the last of it because it dries out. I liked the old twist up tube better. 06/29/2014
A must-have item I have been experimenting with and perfecting my eye makeup since I was twelve, and yet, somehow I have never played with eyelid primer. I never really thought that my colors faded too much. After my first time using this primer, I realized how wrong I have been all this time! I was totally shocked that my eyeshadow looked like I literally just applied it, even twelve hours later! I live in Arizona, and it is crazy hot here, and I also have naturally oily eyelids, but despite that my shadow still looked flawless after using this primer. Ladies, you really do need this, even if you think you don't. Also, it is more tinted than I had anticipated, so really you could use it with no shadow if you wanted (just to hold liner in place, which it also does perfectly!). 06/22/2014
PT Eyelid Primer After receiving the PT eyelid primer as a sample in 2 kits I previously ordered... (Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 The Star Treatment and a Fired Up Kit...)This primer is a must for me. I have oily skin, so I use my Summer Beige concealer all around my eye area,with my Max. Coverage Concealer brush....... wait about 30 seconds while I apply my Matte foundation, then put 2 drops of primer on my fingers, lightly rub them together and gently pat the primer from my eyelids to my brow bone, and even a bit under my lower lash line. When I apply make up, I always wait a minute or 2 to let the products absorb a bit. A few drops go a long way. With this product my eyeshadow and liner did not budge for at least 8 hours. I use a waterproof eye make up remover and jumbo cotton balls to easily remove my eye products, including FD Waterproof Mascara and Lasting Line Eyeliner. 06/11/2014
This Primer is Amazing! I have oily lids so I'm always on the hunt for a good primer. The Prime Time primer was the first primer I started using when I first started wearing makeup in high school. But I would hear things about other primers and would try them out. BIG mistake. None of them can compare. I realized this when I went to Costa Rica and went on two different full day excursions through the rain forrest and sweated so much all my clothes were soaked. I put on just a little eye color (so I wouldn't look like a zombie) and it didn't budge! It looked exactly as it did when I first put it on. No creasing, no bleeding, perfect! I'm NEVER using any other primer again. 05/31/2014

I recently started using your Prime Time Eyelid Primer. I actually developed a pimple on my eyelid, which has never happened before. Is this a coincidence, or is the product not proven to be noncomedogenic?

I've been using this product for 6 months every day and never had this problem. I would think it was a conincidence, as I have gotten pimples on/around my eye in the past on occasion, so can be suseptible, but I haven't had one since using this.

I think it works much better. I've literally fallen asleep with this and bareMinerals eye shadows on and woken up looking the same (and I'm a tosser and turner). I'm not sure how well it works with non-bareMinerals eye shadows cause I tend to save it for them. I believe all of bareMinerals stuff is all natural?

I like prefer it to UD. I get creasing after about a few hours with UD, with this one I do not get creasing until about 7 hours. Ive got very oily lids though. Id describe it as not as slippery as UD, not as liquidy as UD, but it isn't dry looking either. I think eye shadow primer preference depends at least a little on skin type. I like UD under my eyes, but not on my lid. If you've got super super oily lids (oily within ten-fifteen minutes of washing face then try n@rs (@=a) shadow primer.

Not sure about the ingredients, but this works the same as the Urban Decay primer potion. Regardless of what primer I've used underneath, my BE and Buxom shadows have stayed on even in the 105 degree heat this summer. Was amazed. I do think the BE primer helps to enhance and intensify the BE shadow colors better than the other primers though. Also a big fan of the Primer Shadows and recommend those as well as this nude primer.

Put a small amount on your eyelids before applying eye shadow. It helps keep the shadow on longer and helps prevent creases.

You put it on (I use my finger to spread) before you put on your bareMineral eye colors. It helps them last a lot longer and stay more in place in my opinion.

Squeeze out a very small amount onto your fingertip and lightly spread over your entire eyelid. It's very creamy and easy to smoothly apply, and it feels wonderful on. A little goes a long way, so keep it small. If you get too much out of the tube by accident dab a dot onto each eyelid to break it up, then smooth out with the pad of your finger. You can put on your eye makeup immediately, no need to wait for it to dry or anything, and your makeup will go on so much more even with the product than before.

It was my first time using an eyelid primer too. The folks at the BE Boutique showed me how to use it; amazingly easy. Just put a tiny dab on your finger, rub it between same finger of opposite hand to evenly distribute and apply to your eyelids from lashline to brows. Then apply eyeshadow over that.

You can apply the eyelid primer on your eyelid with your finger or a small brush. Personally I use my finger because I can distribute it evenly that way.

This is actually a multi-tasker that can be used in several ways. To apply, use a small amount (the less is MORE approach truly applies here) to your finger (& I'd suggest using your ring finger as it tugs on your skin less, to avoid causing wrinkles or stretching the eyelid) then sweep it over your entire eyelid area. Let dry, then apply your eyeshadow as desired. I wouldn't suggest building this particular primer as a color, because they have others that look much better for that, such as the Brightening & Brightening Pearl versions. Another great way to use, is to squeeze a dab on the side of your hand (thumb area) or pot lid, then dip your brush or finger into your eyeshadow & add it directly to the primer & swirl until well mixed. Apply to your eyes, & voila! It looks especially nice using glimmers, as it sort of "foils" them. This technique pretty much allows you to formulate your own primer colors (although the tinted primers are very nice as well). Lastly, I've read that some ladies like to apply the primer below their eyes either as a concealer, or a base to apply their make-up. Hope this helps!

A: 
The primer you got is a colored one, so you can use it two ways. Put it all over your lid (or lid to brow) as an eyeshadow, layering as needed until you get the color intensity you want. Add the shadow in the kit if you want into the crease & outer lid, then add the liner. OR you can use the primer just as primer, not eyeshadow. Just put a tiny amt on...less is more, let it dry and apply eyeshadow all over it. It'll make your eyemakeup last over 12 hrs with no touch-ups.

You should put the eyelid primer on before you apply your eye color. It will help it go on more evenly, more vibrantly, and will help the eye color stay on longer.

A: 
Before! It helps them last a lot longer. This product is without any extra color (like the primer shadows). It is a neutral lighter skin-tone color. The primer shadows can be used under shadows or alone as they have their own pigments. The "brightening" can also be used alone or under other shadows, because it is a neutral shimmery color.

you apply the primer before using the eyecolor because the primer will hold the color for hours so the color will not fade. (its like a base coat for your eyelids) Now bareminerals do have eyelid primer with color where you do not have to use the eyecolor but that is for you to decided :)

A: 
The primer helps your eyeshadow stay on longer. If you've only used the eyeshadow by itself and had problems with the color wearing off or creasing, then you use primer to help eliminate that. Just squeeze a small dab of primer onto your fingertip (it doesn't take much to cover your lid, so don't squeeze out a large gob or it will make your eyelids look crepe-y and more wrinkly), then glide smoothly onto your lid. I also like to dab a q-tip lightly into the primer and apply right under my lower lash line to prevent my eyeliner from straying. Primer also helps bring out and enhance the beautiful colors of the BE shadows and it really helps to keep your shadow on longer even in hot, sweaty, and humid conditions. I never used to use a primer, but once I did, I haven't looked back and always use primer with my eyeshadows now.

Lynda: It may be that you don't need the BE eyelid primer before applying your BE eyeshadow. The primer is something you put on first and then the eyeshadow over it. This is like painting a wall in your house kinda....put the primer on first and then the color and the primer helps the color to stick better and look better. The reason I use this wonderful primer is because my forehead and nose are both oily which makes my eyelids a bit oily as the day wears on. This causes my eyeshadow to start building up in the crease of my eyelid basically disappearing from the rest of the lid (I hope that made sense!). The primer keeps the oil from affecting the eyeshadow so that it stays put all day and looks just as good at 8:00PM as it did at 8:00AM and I don't have to touch it up throughout the day. I LOVE this product! It saves me time (no touch ups) and helps me look good all day long!

You use this product under the eyeshadow. You can use this product with any brand eyeshadow to help the true color of the shadow to show up on your skin and to keep the eyeshadow from creasing or wearing off. This is a really good product--I have extremely oily eyelids and I can wear any eyeshadow with this product for about 14 hours without creasing (I have not found another product on the market that is as good as this one).

A: 
You apply the product prior to your eye color. You can use the Brightening primers in place of color as they have some sheen to them, but the original Prime Time goes on w/ a neutral finish. If color is what you're after, you will need to use shadow on top of the original Prime Time.

I'd have to say no. Maybe to get it to squeeze through the new container they made it thinner. The old formula had a thicker consistency that this just doesn’t have.

A: 
Yes it is. It is just different packaging. The new brightening formulas are different from this one. The brightening is the same color but with some shimmer, very pretty alone or with warm colors. The brightening pearl is a touch lighter with some shimmer and is best with cooler colors of makeup. I like the brightening primers for my lids and the original for under my eyes, but I am fair so I can do that, just a tiny bit.
