Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PRODUCT
If you have not tried the prime time brightener or if your are considering trying it- please know that you will not be disappointed. I purchased my first bottle in February and absolutely LOVE how it makes my skin feel and how it makes my make-up look. There are a few tips on using this product as many other customers have shared- YES, you do need to shake the bottle before you use it and YES, after a while it is a little difficult to get the primer out of the tube....BUT, it is really not that hard to simply open the bottle and get what you want off of the tube. I have had the same bottle since the end of February and even though I am no longer able to use the top and squirt the primer out, I still have plenty left in the bottle. All I do is open the top, get a little bit off with my fingers and I am good to go. This is a wonderful product with a little shimmer and feels so soft and smooth when applied. I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone.
This Product Delivers
I have to agree with the other reviewers who have had issues with the consistency of this product. When I tried it at the store, and for the first few times that I used it at home, it had a lush, thick, smooth consistency. Then, it began to come out looking like natural peanut butter - with the tinted color separating from a slightly oily-feeling base. I went into the BE store for something else, and one of the makeup artists suggested shaking it up. The first few times that I did, it didn't seem to help, but now that I am shaking it up (vigorously) each time before I use it, it is as lush and wonderful as the first time I tried it. I have very large pores in my T-zone, especially on my nose and just off the nose into the cheek area. This product works to create a very soft, even, perfect texture before I put on my makeup. It is very pretty and luminescent, and I really see a difference with longer wear of my foundation (whether I use mineral or a liquid or creme to powder), and it makes application of foundation incredibly easy and effortless. I love this product!
At first I wasn't sure if I even needed this but I had heard from beauty blogs and what-not that it helps. I have to say I am glad I listened. It's now something I can't live without. The only thing about it is I feel it's a little oily feeling so I will be trying to new oil-free version that just came out.
no problems with seperating
based on the reviews, i almost did not order this product. all the comments about it separating, gloppy, thin, etc did not impress me. I did order it and like the product. Honestly, I cannot see much of a difference from their other Primer. However, i have NOT had any issues with the consistency or application of it. Maybe they changed the formula slightly? I don't know but I'm happy with this.
I really love the way this primer makes my skin look and feel. It goes on very nicely and is quickly absorbed. It really does make my skin look more awake and my tone more even. However, even when it was brand new, I had the hardest time getting it out of the bottle. It would squirt out in a watery mess. Shaking it seemed not to help, so I had to resort to opening the bottle and scrapping out some primer using the tube on the squirt lid. If BE repackages this (maybe a simple squeeze container?) I will consider re-purchasing it. Until then, I'll try the regular primer.
I used the original and it caused me to breakout on my cheekbones with the warmth, but since I switched to this I have not had this problem at all!!
No, No, No
First, I have very few wrinkles, almost none. This settled into every crease I never knew I had!? Wow, I hope original is better.
Not as great as the original
Let me start with saying that I absolutely love the original Prime Time. When I went in for another bottle, the reps in the store mentioned that I should give this formula a try. I was very disappointed. Even after a lot of shaking, the primer comes out runny and always goes on feeling greasy. There is a brightening effect after applying, but it doesn't last long enough for the pros to outweigh the cons. I'm going back to the original!
Can't live without it!
I've used the regular Prime Time religiously for a while now and when I saw there was a brightening formula available I was excited to try it. It's so amazing! It really does add a nice fresh look to your makeup! I've gotten several complements on my makeup since I've started using it, great product a must buy!!
If you have used he NORMAL prime time for face (like me) you automatically seea difference when you pump this stuff out. forst off, you HAVE TO HAVE TO HAVE TO shake the bottle, otherwise it comes flying out everywhere. That aside, the product itself dries quickly on your face so you don't have to wait very long. also, it has enough in one pump to spread evenly and not hold on to more foundation in one section. that way, your face doesn't feel all heavy! Works brilliantly, and my face feels soft and looks dewy and (somewhat) sparkly. MUST HAVE(;
