Prime Time Foundation Primer
LOVE this product!
I have used bare minerals for about 3 years and have loved everything about it. I noticed this winter that I was having some dry skin and some irritation, I'm sure from the weather and the wind. I received a free sample of prime time from a purchase of foundation and I loved it! It is very light and not super oily. The added SPF also helps because I am a redhead and have fair skin. Perfect for every day and make up stays on well!
I was a bit skeptical & refused to buy this product at first. I finally went in to a shop one afternoon after purposely not wearing any makeup. I had a consultant apply the Prime Time then my normal foundation shade. The makeup looked absolutely flawless & stayed put all day. I will never apply the foundation without first using this product!
Foundation glides on with ease!
The Prime Time Foundation Primer is perfect! (Like I said, Bare Minerals never disappoints!) Not only does it go on satiny smooth, but it makes foundation able to glide right on to your skin. Bare Minerals just keeps impressing me more and more!
Still my Favorite
I still love this Primer.
I love the way this feels on my skin, my makeup last much longer using this.
It creates a smooth canvas to work with.
A solid product
I didn't want to add another step to my make up routine, but I finally decided to give in to primer. It does help create a smooth canvas for foundation and helps it last throughout the day. I definitely think it helps my makeup look better. I don't use it everyday since it's kind of expensive. The pump doesn't work very well and shoots out product. I don't think it's a MUST have, but I would definitely recommend it to those who need just a little extra help with their skin prior to make up application.
I have never used a primer before. This is amazing stuff!! Put on before your foundation for amazing smooth face. Foundation goes on flawlessly. Sometimes I forget to put it on and I notice right away that my makeup doesn't look as good. I don't think this was made 'remove lines and wrinkles', but, for me, it seems to 'fill them in'. I love it!!!!
Silicone is not natural
I love all BM products except for the primer. It contains silicone, which is not natural. I thought BM products were supposed to contain natural ingredients. The reason I use BM makeup is because it does not contain silicone. I cant find other foundations out there that don't contain silicone, so this was exciting to find out that BM makeup has like 4 ingredients. My skin is oily and acne prone, so silicone is a major no-no for my skin. I hope they come out with a silicone free primer soon!! Does anyone else have problems with silicone?
Prime Time Foundation Primer
I didn't use foundation primer until recently, when I got a sample of this with a purchase. I thought that with my oily skin, using a primer would only exacerbate the issue. However, I was so wrong! The primer feels velvety, fills in my pores, and creates a smooth canvas for my foundation. It does feel a little oily sometimes (for my skin), but really helps my makeup last all day while still looking flawless. If you love having flawless-looking skin all day, then try this primer!
The only thing I don't like is the pump; I prefer the tube because it helps to get all the product out (with the pump you have to open it up sometimes to get the product).
Tip: Make sure the primer is completely dry before you apply foundation - 60 to 90 seconds after applying it should be dry. This ensures that the foundation does not get cakey, and goes on flawlessly.
I was always hesitant about using a primer because I was scared of any adverse reactions from my skin. I gave this a shot and it was great. It was pleasant to use, very silky and it doesn't feel heavy on your skin. It didn't cause any adverse reactions so I am grateful and very happy with this product.
This product feels great the moment you put it on. Hydrating and smooth. (Beware, make sure it dries before putting on make up). My only problem is that I don't notice an improvement between using it and not. I'm not sure its worth the price.
