Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer
PRIME TIME BRIGHTENING FOUNDATION PRIMER
I have experimented with Bare Minerals products for 3 months now. My skin is somewhat sensitive but it NEVER breaks out in pimples! That is until I used this product. Within hours I had 4 red breakouts with white centres. I thought well maybe it's a coincidence. Used it the next day and more breakouts appeared exactly the same. I stopped using it but continued with the foundation. Breakouts have somewhat disappeared (have been using blemish therapy which I ordered immediately after breakouts appeared). Have since ordered the combination skin moisturizer and wrinkle cream and I am still experiencing more & more breakouts. The foundation seems fine as do the eyeshadows and face colours but all primers, moisturizers and cleansers do not seem to work for me. I tried the Primer one more time today and again, 4 breakouts - temples, chin & cheeks. It's a real shame as I LOVED the texture of my skin after applying the primer. Just hope I can get rid of all the breakouts and stop new ones from appearing.
A great product
This works very well. it's barely there feel and color brightening was just what I was looking for!
I tried this product thinking I should really introduce a primer into my beauty regime. It does feel beautiful on my skin, but I didn't really notice a visible difference, maybe you're not meant to? What I found really disappointing is that the pump mechanism squirts out the primer in every direction every time I use it - not what I expected from this brand.
Most of the time it is hard to give yourself a compliment, but I have been using the Prime Time Brightening for about 2 weeks now along with my make up and I can tell a huge difference. My complexion just really seems to radiate and so far I am in love with how the product is working. I hope the product continues to keep bringing a smile to my face. I am a huge BE girl, but I have never really given the primer a solid chance. I am glad I have and you will be glad you did too. :)
This product definitely did not work as I thought it would. The pump for the container does not work well at all, I have to pump 20 times just to get a little bit out. When it does come out, its such a small amount, like a tiny spray of stuff. So either my pump/product is broken, or this product is just awful. Too bad, it was super expensive too.
stick to the original Primer
This was the first primer I have ever tried. First of all, I have to shake it so hard I have accidentally hurled the bottle across the room. Not once, but three times. Seriously? This is not how a good product should function. And not that my vision is tops, but I really don't know what the "brightening" effect is supposed to look like. Bottom line, stick to their original primer. It's got a much better consistency.
Didn't Work For Me
I bought the PT Brightening Foundation Primer a month after trying the original PT Foundation Primer (see my separate review on this product). I did not find the PT Brightening Foundation Primer to be as effective as the products claims. I noticed that my face was more oily at the end of the day and was not as effective in minimizing pores. Also, it did nothing to improve the dry patches on my chin. It did give my face an initial "glow" in the morning but I noticed that I was better off using the Mineral Veil for the same effect. Lastly, the pump bottle dispensed the product unevenly and was messy.
Love at first use...
I love this primer. It gives you radiance and helps control oily T-zone! I don't have a clue how it works all I know is it does. In the winter my cheeks seem dry and the this primer has helped lock in the moisture.
Helped my BE foundation stay on all day, even working at a pizza place! Love this stuff!!
Brightening = Shiney
I think by brightening they meen shiney. Its pretty at first, but you still need to reapply quite a bit. Also, its a little bit oily for me. I prefer the oil control primer to this. But hey I tried it!
