Prime Time Foundation Primer 4.4 5 84 85
Primer that works! I have tried a lot of primers but this one takes the cake! It helps to diminish the look of pores and fine lines. All while creating a smooth canvas for foundation application. It will help to increase the wear-ability of your foundation. This primer does NOT clog pores. It glides over skin without pilling, and blends in. Give it a minute or two before foundation application and you're set all day! I love how good it feels over my moisturizer and on my skin. This has become a staple of mine. 03/04/2015
Must have product! The Prime Time Foundation Primer is a must have in your make up collection! It allows my make up to go on flawlessly. It also makes my skin feel super smooth! The only con has nothing to do with the actual primer. The pump on the container is awful. I often have to unscrew the cap in order to get the product out. Regardless, it is a must have in your make up bag! 02/28/2015
This primer is my all time FAVORITE beauty product!! I first tried Prime Time Foundation Primer when my sister gave me one of her samples, and ever since then it has been a must have for me. When you use the primer before putting on foundation it looks 100xs better! The primer smooths out your skin and fills in any pores so that your foundation glides on smoothly. I can't wait to try the other kinds! 02/25/2015
Can't live without it I at first thought primers were more of a gimmick. Then I tried it, now I can't live without it. It goes on so smooth, feels great, and my makeup lasts all day, even with lunch time workouts and going out after work. It's amazing how much more I get out of my foundation I already was in love with, and now somehow love even more thanks to this primer. 01/15/2015
I wish the product worked for me... I wanted to love Prime Time, but it caused me to have both cystic acne and white heads. Prime Time goes on so smooth, and makes the bareMinerals look even more flawless than if you wear the foundation alone. I wish it would have worked for me but I had to give it up. One week after I stopped using PT, my acne was completely gone. So, I know PT was the culprit. I only use the foundation alone now. So, if anyone else who is reading this has been experiencing acne while using Prime Time and the bareMinerals foundation, don't give up on the foundation just yet. Try the foundation without the Prime Time and see if your acne clears. Like I said, it took about a week for my face to fully clear up, but I noticed within 24 hours that no new acne was developing. I believe Prime Time was blocking my pores and trapping bacteria inside, causing acne. It just wasn't for me. But I envy those of you who have had success! :) 01/14/2015
Sensitive Skin I love this product. The nourishing ingredients for your face with a silky-smooth coverage as a first layer before applying makeup. The foundation powder absorbs into the primer and blends into the skin very well. I love the feel of my skin after applying the primer and after removing my makeup at night. I've even tried it with the new Liquid Brightening Foundation. It works. 01/14/2015
Love it I love how easily the primer goes on and how little you need. I can do my entire face with a dab about the size of a pencil eraser. It glides on smooth and makes the foundation just glide on. I consider primer an absolutely essential first step in my makeup routine. 01/03/2015
BEST PRIMER EVER! After receiving a sample size of this primer in one of the Flawless Complextion Essentials Kit, I am defiantly going back for the full size! It is the most amazing product ever. It's so soft and silky on my skin, and I can't even feel it's there. Does great with the longevity of your foundation. I am so in love!! 12/19/2014
Great silky smooth primer, but the pump is a nightmare!! I love this product, it feels so nice on my skin. I do absolutely hate the pump, however and I really hope you will start using a different kind of container. Air gets trapped in the pump itself and so primer squirts out in all directions. Also, the only way to get the last of the product out is to take the cap off and try scooping it out with a narrow object. 12/13/2014
Great Primer But Not for the Acne Prone This primer makes foundation last all day and look perfect. I do not wear on a daily basis, however, for special events or days I need to look presentable a long period of time I will and after wearing it I always get a few small breakouts. If the product didn't make me break out I would wear everyday. I wear it only for special events and always wash my fact carefully after to try and prevent the breakouts. 12/07/2014
