Prime Time Foundation Primer 4.4 5 82 83
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
make up smear when you sweat? not when you use this! I love bare minerals makeup. My skin breaks out easily, so this is a good product for me. However, I realized this last summer that when my face would start to sweat, if I wiped it at all, my makeup in that spot would smear right off! It looked bad. I'm about to move to Florida, so I was really freaking out about what makeup I would have to switch to. I decided to try the foundation primer, and it works perfectly! My makeup stays on all day...even on a hot sweaty day. It feels like it would be oily, but it's really not. It goes on smooth and does its job! Because of this product, I'm able to continue wearing bare minerals foundation when I move to Florida :) ...it also lasts for a really long time! When you think its out, open up the lid and check, because I bet what's left in there, stuck to the pump, will last you another month or longer. 12/06/2014
Great product -terrible container! Change please! I've always loved the product!! My complaint is that the product runs out in the pump container and I alway cut the bottom off ( hard to do with this hard plastic) and there is a TON of primer still in the bottle. I can get another 2 weeks worth from it. I store the bottle in a plastic baggie daily until it's gone. Go to an easy tube or packaging. Bottle is a waste and just a bad idea! 12/06/2014
