Prime Time Eyelid Primer
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.
I purchased the Primer with my starter kit because when I blink my eyelids seem to tap away my eyeliner in the center of my eyelid leaving a gap. This product has solved the problem. I apply it close to the lash line and let it dry, apply my liner and it stays all day. Did not give it a 5 because it is a little pricey for the amount of product you get. But that being said, I will buy it again as for me it is worth the price.
Great staying power!
I'm that friend that does everyone's makeup whether for going out or for the BIG day, I will never not use this product! As a few people already mentioned, you only need an itty bitty amount for the perfect silky coating. I often use what is left when I apply along the bottom lash line since I often do the sultry smokey eyes. It keeps any eyeliner or shadows from sliding down my face as the day goes on. No more raccoon eyes! I always have two tubes. One for my at home kit and one for my to-go kit. Good in humid weather also.
So glad I tried it
I had seen this product before, and thought it was a gimicky thing and a waste of money. Boy was I WRONG! I thought my makeup stayed good enough before, but then I saw a sale for this product and a review raving about it, so I tried it. I will never go without this product again! It's so creamy and smooth, my eye makeup goes on so much more even then before. And it lasts all day, no exceptions. I put it on in the morning, and if I get to bed really late and don't wash my face I'll wake up and my eye makeup is still in place. It's amazing. This is now a must have in my makeup bag. And don't be fooled when you get it and the tube is small. A very small amount is all you use each day, and that little tube really lasts. I use it every day without fail and can't believe how long I go before I need to reorder. Worth every penny!!! You've gotta try it.
For many years I've "suffered" without the use of gorgeous eye colors. This product has turned my eye-shadow wearing days inside out!!! Without it, eye colors are not as vibrant, last only hours, and creasing happens in less than an hour. With it--complete eye-beauty-perfection! NO creasing, STUNNING, VIBRANT eye colors, lasts ALL DAY LONG! How did I ever live without this stuff????
Key to vibrant eyes!
I purchased the Prime Time Eyelid Primer at a BE Boutique. I'd been using the Matte & Mineral Veil for a few weeks, loved it & decided to branch out to other products. I experimented with the READY eyeshadow I purchased, with & without the Eyelid Primer. What a difference when using the Primer-it lived up to the claims and then some. It's amazing! The shadow application was more smooth (if that's possible), colors were more vibrant, & it still looks exactly as I've applied them in the morning at the end of a long day. It's a daily part of my eyeshadow routine to bring the Bare Minerals colors to life. You only need a tiny dab of this product to spread from lashline to brows, so the tube will last an incredibly long time. So far, I've loved all the Bare Minerals products I've tried!
Love this Primer!!
Without this primer my eye-shadow and eyeliner will disappear after two hours because of my oily eye lids but not anymore!!!! I use this primer all the time and my eye-shadow and eyeliner stays on for hours! This is the first and last eye primer I will ever use!!!
Original is the best.
When I take the time to do my makeup, I want it to last. I used to get so frustrated that I would put in the time and effort in the morning, but by 3pm you couldn’t really tell I put any make up that day. And then my sister showed me the Prime Time. Now, just take a few seconds – literally, to put a tiny amount on one pointer finger, rub between my two pointer fingers, then swipe on each eye from eye lashes to eye brows. Boom, done. A small amount goes a long ways. So one tube will last a long time. I have NOT been impressed with the colored and brightening versions. I guess the sequels just don’t live up to the original. This is super smooth, and doesn’t feel heavy or chalky. I wear it over my foundation. I wear contacts and it never bothers my eyes. If I get a little sloppy, because it is not very colored you can’t tell, which is nice. It doesn’t change the color of my eye shadow, and if anything makes the colors more vibrant. I like that I get the intense color without having to ‘build it up’ by putting a lot on. For me, it is totally worth spending the extra $18 so my make up stays on. Because if your make up is falling off, isn’t that kind of a waste of time and money if it doesn’t last?
Cannot live without
Picked this up when it first came out and it is something I cannot do without. With just a tiny bit the primer let my eye color stay on from 6 AM-8 PM during my friend's big day. My eyes outlasted everyone's and I stand by this product. It is a must have in my make up bag!
Without this primer, my eye makeup is gone by noon. With this, I can go from morning to late night with my makeup still looking fresh. I love this so much!
