Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer
I tried the Prime Time Brightening Primer first and really liked it. Then I read the reviews for the regular Prime Time Primer and decided to try it as well. Ultimately, I prefer the brightening. There's just enough coverage that I occasionally wear it alone with just some mascara and lipgloss when I want to keep things quick and simple. It does an amazing job of keeping my Bare Minerals foundation on all day and yet comes off easily with a mild cleanser. I was a little worried that it could cause breakouts but it didn't.
I thought I was going to love this product, but found that I don't. Even though I shake it every time, before using, I still get the runny splattering mess. It seems to come out ok once in a while, but most of the time I just get frustrated trying to get it out of the dispenser. The product itself is ok. I don't see any glowing difference when I put it on my face, so I will purchase the original primer next time.
This primer makes a huge difference. With it, my make up application looks much smoother and more natural.
This product in my opinion can stand alone. Over top of my BE Skin~Care, if I don't want to take and make a project out of my Facial Canvas, I can just apply this little BEauty and go out and feel Finished, Glorious, and BEautiful...
Ok, so I love the product! It works! It keeps your BM makeup on all day, and even though it is slick feeling, I can sometimes get really oily skin, but this does not give me oily skin. Sometimes I'll even just put it on and go out for the day during the summer, because it looks so great just on the skin. Now the hate part, the bottle it comes in! It literally squirts the product every which direction, making it frustrating to get a good amount actually on your fingers and also wasting product! Please change the packaging BE! Please!
I just love this primer. It feels more moisturizing than the other face primers plus it gives you that luminous glow. I like to mix this in with my BE matte foundation and buff it on with my brush. This way I get the great coverage I need and my mu will last all day. My only issue is the packaging since the pump stops working after a few days and I have to unscrew the top to get it out.
Great product; very frustrated with pump bottle
I'm writing on behalf of myself & the 2 younger BE lovers in my family. We have never used the "original" primer. Our only experience is the "bright" primer which works great if we can get any from the bottle. We have been told at our local BE store to shake & hit the bottle against the palm of our hand, just open the bottle to get some out or return it and we can swap our bottles for the "original". We would prefer to continue using the "bright", but have it easy to use. That way, we can enjoy using it as much as all the other BE products we purchase.
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS PRODUCT
If you have not tried the prime time brightener or if your are considering trying it- please know that you will not be disappointed. I purchased my first bottle in February and absolutely LOVE how it makes my skin feel and how it makes my make-up look. There are a few tips on using this product as many other customers have shared- YES, you do need to shake the bottle before you use it and YES, after a while it is a little difficult to get the primer out of the tube....BUT, it is really not that hard to simply open the bottle and get what you want off of the tube. I have had the same bottle since the end of February and even though I am no longer able to use the top and squirt the primer out, I still have plenty left in the bottle. All I do is open the top, get a little bit off with my fingers and I am good to go. This is a wonderful product with a little shimmer and feels so soft and smooth when applied. I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone.
This Product Delivers
I have to agree with the other reviewers who have had issues with the consistency of this product. When I tried it at the store, and for the first few times that I used it at home, it had a lush, thick, smooth consistency. Then, it began to come out looking like natural peanut butter - with the tinted color separating from a slightly oily-feeling base. I went into the BE store for something else, and one of the makeup artists suggested shaking it up. The first few times that I did, it didn't seem to help, but now that I am shaking it up (vigorously) each time before I use it, it is as lush and wonderful as the first time I tried it. I have very large pores in my T-zone, especially on my nose and just off the nose into the cheek area. This product works to create a very soft, even, perfect texture before I put on my makeup. It is very pretty and luminescent, and I really see a difference with longer wear of my foundation (whether I use mineral or a liquid or creme to powder), and it makes application of foundation incredibly easy and effortless. I love this product!
At first I wasn't sure if I even needed this but I had heard from beauty blogs and what-not that it helps. I have to say I am glad I listened. It's now something I can't live without. The only thing about it is I feel it's a little oily feeling so I will be trying to new oil-free version that just came out.
