Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer
I love this. My make up went on easily and stayed on all day. I didn't have that 5 o'clock shine like I usually do. It didn't dry my skin at all.
Give it a shot!
I have very oily and acne prone skin. When I started using the oil control primer I got smoother coverage with my bareMinerals make up and I no longer had to worry about that shiny look! It is so thrilling to not feel like I have to touch up my make up constantly.
NO SHINE, ADDS DURABILITY
I use this primer before applying the BareMinerals matte foundation. I have found that combining these two products works wonders on oily skin! This primer assists the matte foundation in taking away the annoying shiny appearance that is accompanied with oily skin. It also adds durability and helps your foundation stay on your skin longer and better. I would recommend this to any girl with oily skin! It really does help!
This really helps!
I get oily skin throughout the day and this helps keep it way under control. When I used to use my foundation without it, I would look like I just got done frying something in the kitchen. Now, I apply this before my face makeup and follow that with the mineral veil, my skin is completely smooth and light and wonderful!
I loved it!
I have tried several make up brands, moisturizers, and the like over the years. I have a particular problem of having my make up stay in place throughout the day due to my sometimes oily skin. The Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer is great because I can wear it on special events, or days I know I'm going to be more stressed (which can make my skin more oily) and my Bare Minerals, which already holds up amazingly, lasts just the extra step. It doesn't take much, so I already know this bottle is going to last a long time. I love it!
Went back to the original primer
This went on smooth, but as I started applying my foundation it began to ball up and flake off. I couldn't get it to "behave" so I ended up just washing my entire face and starting over without a primer.
I went back to the boutique and exchanged it for the original primer, which does not flake off at all.
Made me break out :-(
I have never tried a primer before, but decided to give it a try. I tend toward oily and sensative skin. At first everything was fine, but toward the end of the day my face felt like it was burning. When I washed my face that evening there were blotches all over my face that really hurt :-( The painful blotches stayed for a week even though I didn't use any more primer or even wear makeup all that week. No amount of moisturizer helped calm the burning feeling either. Honestly, I haven't been that embarrassed about my skin since puberty.
All other bareMinerals products I've tried, I've loved . . . but I definately wouldn't recommend this one.
Exactly what I needed!
I have a very oily t-zone, and usually I can't go an hour after putting on makeup before the oil starts to show, especially on my forehead. But the primer really absorbed the oil, and I can go all day without having to worry about it. My foundation didn't smear/smudge as badly either, and it minimized my pores. This product was basically everything I wanted it to be!
Alas this did not work for me. It went on goopy and stayed streaky. It did not work as well as I would have hoped. Even after letting the moisturizer soak in, it still left streaks.
I have struggled with oily skin my whole life, and recently I have discovered bare minerals and all it has to offer. This primer plus the Matte foundation is perfect. Before bare minerals I could go about one hour before my make up would be ruined by the oil production on my face. Now, my face can go 7 - 8 hours before I even start to notice a little oil. A little touch up fixes that right up. The primer leaves your face soft, and even. It's really a great primer, and will do wonders if you have struggled with oil production like myself. Just give it a shot, if it helps my face it'll help anyone.
