Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer
A little goes a long way
I got this because I have pinkish undertones and this helps out a lot! You don't need a full pump just a pea size will be plenty. I took off one star because I don't think it helps out with the longevity too much.
ORIGINAL+NEUTRALIZING = More even skin tone!
I had been using the Original Primer, and received a sample of the Neutralizing because I was curious if it would help with some specific red areas. I was hesitant to use it full strength, so I ended up just mixing some of it into one of my almost empty Original Primer bottles, and I LOVE how it turned out. Has the consistency of the Original Primer, but does more to even out my skin tone after adding the Neutralizing Primer. My Bare Minerals make-up has never looked better. Definitely going to continue mixing, and I highly recommend it for anyone with 'red zones'.
I love the way this primer even's out my face and helps control the redness that I have had all mt life in my cheeks. My skin is very sensitive so I was very leery about using this product, but I use it everyday now. Couldn't be happier with this product.
This is by far the best product ever
It hides all my redness...even the deep red patches on my cheeks...Nothing has ever done that - NOT EVER! And it lasts all day - EVEN MORE AMAZING!
I have combo skin and oily in the summer. This product completely controls my oil production. Perfect pair with the READY foundation. Gets rid of any redness and leaves a clean slate for my makeup. Only thing I dislike is the chemical smell but It quickly dissipates when smoothed on skin. Another great BE product. LOVE YOU LESLIE BLODGETT!
Love this primer
I just recently discovered this primer at Sephora. I love how it takes away my redness before I apply my foundation. I have redness around chin, cheeks and it totally calms my skin down. I would say my my redness stays at bay for 4-5 hours max. Would love it even more if it lasted a bit longer. Great product.
Wanted to Love it :(
I tried this primer to help hide the redness in my cheek area. While I do think it works well at covering redness, it felt heavy to me. Its not light and odorless like the origional. Also the consistancy is more of a cream that must be rubbed in. This primer has a slight smell, that I didnt appreciate. Will buy the origional, not this.
I love this product!
I am new to Bare Minerals, so I went to the mall to try the products. I have to say that Imam very impressed with the results!! Especially the neutralizing primer. I was a little hesitant at first when I saw the tint was yellow but it didn't even show after it was applied. I have a few red areas normally and as soon as the BM consultant applied this product my redness disappeared!! I am definitely buying this product again. Love it!!
Decent primer, though not necessarily neutralizing
I like the original primer, but thought perhaps I could reduce (or eliminate) the concealer process by using this "neutralizing" primer. So I got myself a bottle. Here's what I have found:
1. It is a bit thicker than the original. When I apply it, it feels a bit more like moisturizer than the original primer. Not sure if it moisturizes, but seems to me it takes a bit longer to dry than the original. On the other hand, even the original formula takes longer to dry in the hot weather.
2. It is yellow in color, not skin-yellow, more bright, neon-ish yellow. But when the primer is rubbed into the skin, the yellow color pretty much disappears. In terms of covering up anything, this primer doesn't do much for me that I can tell. Perhaps it works better on a really light skinned person. (I wear Ready Golden Medium).
3. My bottle of original primer smells faintly of vaseline to me (which I don't mind); this neutralizing primer, however, emits no smell. In my experience, if there is an unpleasant smell, the cosmetic product may be rancid. So I wouldn't avoid this primer because it may smell bad--it doesn't (or shouldn't).
This is the greatest primer ever. I have fair skin with pink cheeks and they get red very easily with any change in temperature, having a drink, emotion, etc. This is the ONLY thing I have ever found to neutralize the red! No need to layer on multiple layers of foundation, concealer and powder anymore. Just this and a swoop of the Ready foundation over the primer and it lasts all day. It even has enough coverage to wear just the primer out to the grocery store or to run errands. Love it!
