Prime Time Eyelid Primer
Beyond thrilled with this product!
I have always had very, very sensitive eyes and that was one of the reasons that I turned to Bare Minerals to begin with. Everything that I have tried, from foundation to lipstick, has not only performed as promised, it has OUTPERFORMED my wildest expectations.
The Eyelid Primer was no exception to this rule, but I have to tell you, it is beyond what I hoped for. It goes on like a whisper, silken to the touch and it blends into the eyelids so easily that there is no reason to wait more than the time it takes to select your applicator to begin putting on your eye shadow.
It never makes my eyelids itch or sticky, as other products from the department stores have done in the past. It ALWAYS keeps my eye smooth and crease-free, even after 12+ hours of wear. There is no fading, no creasing, no need to touch up unless I need to transition from day to evening, and the additional shadow goes on equally as flawlessly.
A little goes a very long way and the fact that there is never any eye irritation of any kind makes this a miracle in a tube as far as I am concerned, and a value on top of it.
This is one item that is an absolute MUST HAVE.
I have greasy eyelids and struggle to find products that stay put all day. This primer gets that job done. It is not drying like many primers and makes it so easy to apply shadow and liner. I have tried the other BM primers (colored and the BB eye shadow) and this original primer is by far the best. If you struggle with greasy eye lids this is the answer to your problems!
I cannot use this product.
I have never been so disappointed in a BE product. When I first opened it, I could not squeeze any out of the tube with two hands. I finally got a tiny amount out, and it was not creamy, it was like lead coming out of a mechanical pencil which broke off when I touched it with a makeup brush. I messed around with a pin at the end of the tube so I could try to get some out. It comes out a little better, but it is still not good with a brush. If I use my finger, I can put some of it on.
I have another Prime Time Primer in a different shade, and it is not like this.
I will not buying this again.
I feel like this works pretty well. I can't decide if I like the 5-in-1 primer better but they both brighten. I'm not sure if I like the matte finish or not. It almost seems drying but my shadows stay all day, there are no creases, and it doesn't fade. It also doesn't get oily either. If you are traveling I would say it is the perfect item to take. It just seems very small for the cost but I do like the product.
I never put on eye shadow without first applying this primer. It really helps any color POP! It lasts all day without creasing or dulling. It's great!
this little tube is the cat's meow---makes your eye shadow perform at it's utmost best. keeps it from fading and creasing. and it's easy to apply!! you only need the smallest amount, which is good cuz the tube is small!!!
Works well but packaging needs work
I love the product, but it is hard to get out of the tube when it gets to about half full. You end up squeezing way too much out and waste it. You can't cut the end off the tube to get the last of it because it dries out. I liked the old twist up tube better.
A must-have item
I have been experimenting with and perfecting my eye makeup since I was twelve, and yet, somehow I have never played with eyelid primer. I never really thought that my colors faded too much. After my first time using this primer, I realized how wrong I have been all this time! I was totally shocked that my eyeshadow looked like I literally just applied it, even twelve hours later! I live in Arizona, and it is crazy hot here, and I also have naturally oily eyelids, but despite that my shadow still looked flawless after using this primer. Ladies, you really do need this, even if you think you don't. Also, it is more tinted than I had anticipated, so really you could use it with no shadow if you wanted (just to hold liner in place, which it also does perfectly!).
PT Eyelid Primer
After receiving the PT eyelid primer as a sample in 2 kits I previously ordered... (Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 The Star Treatment and a Fired Up Kit...)This primer is a must for me. I have oily skin, so I use my Summer Beige concealer all around my eye area,with my Max. Coverage Concealer brush....... wait about 30 seconds while I apply my Matte foundation, then put 2 drops of primer on my fingers, lightly rub them together and gently pat the primer from my eyelids to my brow bone, and even a bit under my lower lash line. When I apply make up, I always wait a minute or 2 to let the products absorb a bit. A few drops go a long way. With this product my eyeshadow and liner did not budge for at least 8 hours. I use a waterproof eye make up remover and jumbo cotton balls to easily remove my eye products, including FD Waterproof Mascara and Lasting Line Eyeliner.
This Primer is Amazing!
I have oily lids so I'm always on the hunt for a good primer. The Prime Time primer was the first primer I started using when I first started wearing makeup in high school. But I would hear things about other primers and would try them out. BIG mistake. None of them can compare. I realized this when I went to Costa Rica and went on two different full day excursions through the rain forrest and sweated so much all my clothes were soaked. I put on just a little eye color (so I wouldn't look like a zombie) and it didn't budge! It looked exactly as it did when I first put it on. No creasing, no bleeding, perfect! I'm NEVER using any other primer again.
Must have for eye makeup
I received this in a kit I bought and from the first time I tried it I fell in love. I used to go thru tons of a high lightning color to use as a base as my eyes, hair are so dark. All bare minerals products a little goes a long way. I love just using this as a base to color and highlight for a natural looking eye. It's it's own color. With a little eyeliner and mascara I feel like I have a fresh faced look (not overdone) that literally takes minuets to complete. Once again bare minerals hits another home run.
I have tried many eye shadow primers, Urban Decay, Benefit, But this eyelid primer stands tall above the rest, it never crease even at the end of the day, it still looks amazing. The creamy texture feels wonderful, and is a must for my everyday routine.
When I first started with BE, I had no idea that there was an eye primer. I just used the regular primer. I was just told a couple months ago about this product and use it every time I use my make up. It is essential! It makes my lids soft and less clumping of eye shadow. I recommend it!
I really like this product. It keeps my shadow looking great all day and prevents that pesky wear line.
Best products BE makes!!!
I have the Prime Time Eyelid Primer, the Bronze, and Chroma Violet Primer Shadows and I love them all. I am loving no creases at the end of the day. Before all my eyeshadow ended up in the crease or just disappeared. I applied it at 9am and at 11pm I still have all the shades on and looking great. All three have different components - The Prime time evens out my lid tone and is a great base for any color. The Bronze is a great shimmer on my eye - can wear without anything else. The Chroma is a pretty purple that I can wear alone or layer with other colors.
I had never used a primer before this. Now I can't stop. Putting on eyeshadow is not the same unless you have this primer. Before I used this my eyeshadow would smear and smudge and disappear. I use this primer and my eyeshadow looks great from the time I put it on until the time I take it off. I have even fallen asleep with my eyeshadow on and nothing is on the pillow and when I wake up my eyeshadow still looks amazing!
I love this stuff! For some reason my eyelids always absorb my eye make-up, except for when I use the Prime Time Primer! It goes on super smooth and helps my eyeshadow last for hours and hours. It's the best!
Can't believe how long this lasts
Eyeshadow stays put from early morning until I take it off at night. I'm in a very dry climate so it will be interesting to see how well it works in hot and muggy places. Dries fast so blend well or you end up with a visible beige spot. Tube seems small but it does work and you don't need too much.
best for long lasting eye color
I've love this product for ~10 years, though I will admit I preferred it in the twist-stick form a little more (just for ease of application). I've literally fallen asleep with my bareMinerals eye colors on and woken up looking like I did the night before. It works that well! It easily makes your eye shadows last all night, if not longer. It's the only eyelid primer I've found with this level of staying power.
I've used this product for several years and absolutely love it. I have oily skin and before this product, my eyeshadow would be in a pool in the crease of my eye. This keeps my BE eyeshadow in place all day now. It may be expensive, but my last tube lasted 5 months.
Prime Time Eyelid Primer
I don't always wear eyeshadow (although I always wear eyeliner and mascara!), but when I do I always use the Eyelid Primer; it makes the colors more deeply pigmented, it helps the color last all day, and is super lightweight. If you're having trouble with eyeshadows not lasting, or they are smearing, this a a great product to help fix those issues! Overall, a wonderful eyelid primer.
I used to have issues with my eye shadow creasing due to oily skin, but since using this stuff I have gone all day without having that issue!! This stuff even survived working out at the gym!! I love love love this stuff and will it buy again!!
Perfection in a tube!
This is by far my faaaaaavorite product! I do not have a big eyelid pallet, making it hard for eye shadows to last more than a couple hours. I was just about to give up on using eye shadows altogether when I was introduced to the Prime Time Eyelid primer. This product is EXCELLENT! It allows my eye shadows to last all day, through all weather! I just apply a pea-sized amount, and like magic, my eye shadows stay looking fresh all day!
Helps keep colors vivid longer
I haven't had the same life-changing experience as some of the rave reviews listed, but I do recommend this product.
I've never had an issue with BM eyeshadows creasing, so the real benefit of this product is that my eyeshadow lasts longer. I used to touch up partway through the day, but since I don't lug all my colors and brushes around with me it would never look quite the same as it did in the mornings. This has eliminated that need for me. My eyeshadow will still fade between the time I leave for work and the time I return home (unfortunately it's not quite a miracle in a little bottle!), but colors still show and the work I put into blending it into the perfect shadow lasts much longer.
Not a must-have piece for me, but definitely nice when I have a few extra bucks laying around.
A necessity if your eyecolor fades
I have very oily eyelids and this product has helped so much! If your eye makeup fades after 6-7 hours and/or creases at all, this product is the answer. Only downside is the price point- it does last awhile (a couple months for me), but it could be a bit more affordable.
OK primer-too expensive and too small a tube
I like most of the things I have gotten at BE, but am disappointed with the eye primer. For the price, you get a fraction of what other brands offer and BE primer does not seem to work any better.
In addition, maybe I got a dud, but the primer seems a bit dry. I tried to mix it with loose powder eyeliner, which I have done with primers from a couple of other brands. I barely get to mix anything and it all dries up. Even when I move fast, the liner does not go on as smoothly as with other primers.
No more BE eye primer for me :-(
eye lid primer
This product is wonderfull. I have oily eyelids. My eye shadow always was in the crease by lunchtime. This product holds my shadow in place. I use just a tiny bit about the size of a grain of rice.
Gone are the days of disappearing shadow or creases. I love this product.
Best eye primer ever
This is one of my favorite BareMinerals products. I have very oily skin and was never able to keep any eyeshadow on without it creasing within a few hours, until I tried this Prime Time eyelid primer. I have been using this product for a few years now, and I use it every time I wear eyeshadow.
With this Prime Time I can put on my eye shadow in the morning and it stays crease free all day. It even keeps my eyeshadow in place on very humid days. It works better than any other eye primer I have ever tried. Also one tube of it can last a long time! I can't imagine wearing eyeshadow without this product.
Major must have
I have not been able to wear eye shadows in years due to sensitive skin. Then I found out about the eye primer, OMG solved all my issues. 1 thing I have learned is use eye primer w/ your eye liner, mix together or eye shadow for eye liner. Makes a lot of difference to making eye liner stay on all day.
