Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer
Pretty Good Primer
I have used the Original Primer that I receive in my Club Renewal and loved it. When I saw that I could try the Oil Control (because I am one shiny chick!), I was like "Heck yeah!!" The texture was very different than the original primer. It is a little more liquid feeling and also the dry time is quicker, so you have to make sure you get it on your face. I work a 10 hour day in the South, where it is hot as Hades 10 months out of the year. No shiny cheeks, nose, or forehead with this product. It really is pretty great. I also dot a teeny bit on the eyelids to help there as well. The only "I wish" I have about this product is that the bottle doesn't last as long as my Original Primer did and I seem to have to use a little more because of the thinner quality of the gel. Other than that....they knocked it outta the park.
I bought this back in July. It works great in the summer months. I used it when it just started to get cold, and my skin started to get really dry. My skin does get dry during the winter months, so I recommend getting original Prime Time Foundation Primer if you have dry skin, and get the Prime Time Oil Control just for summer.
Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer
I love the new formula. It allows my new Ready Foundation to apply beautifully. I do still use oil sheets and Ready Touch Up Mineral Veil but only once daily. Compared to the 4-5 times before the new formula. This is a wonderful product and a must in my daily makeup routine. Thanks BE and Lesle!
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.
