Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer
Won't start the day without it!
I absolutely love this product! I used the original - and it is great too - but there's something even better about this one. Ever since I started to wear it, I find I am wearing less/almost no other make-up and people are constantly asking me what I am doing differently or just saying I look great! My husband even noticed a change in my appearance...imagine!
Only issue is the same as many others have said - it splatters. Fix that, and you've got a real winner.
Not what I expected
I read the other reviews of this product and thought it would be just what I was looking for. I ordered it as part of a deal with a foundation because I wanted to try it and I can always use a little complexion perk up. It doesn't seem to do anything as far as making my complexion look any brighter. It made my skin feel SO super smooth and silky, but it really doesn't look any different. I didn't find the texture at all runny and it almost seems too thick because every time I pump it out it kind of just blows up all over my hand. I probably wouldn't get this again just because the regular Prime Time is just as good, doesn't burst out all over and I really don't see any "brightening" effect.
Love the old Prime time much better
Do not like the new product at all. It does not pump out of bottle with consistency, unless you spend a lot of time shaking it thoroughly (which does not need to be done with the old product), it comes out partially runny. When one opens up the bottle, you can see inside it how it is not the same consistency. To stand there and take the time to shake it so much before I use it slows down my prep time in the morning...when I mastered the Bare Escentuals routine, it was and is very fast and flawless to my delight. I have stopped using the new product and gone back to the original Prime Time. One day I will make time to return the almost full bottle of Prime Time Brightening. This is the first product of yours I have been unhappy with and both of my daughters use your products as well and we all love them.
Put it on naked!
This is a great product - if you can dispense it without splattering it all over your clothing. I actually sell & demo this product & have tried at least 4 different bottles & they have ALL done this. And yes, I shake it.
I hope it is repackaged soon, because it's not going to be a repeat purchase for clients unless this problem is fixed.
Disappointed in new brightening primer
First off, let me admit to being a BE addict! I never start my day without it! And, I absolutely love regular Prime Time foundation primer, so when Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer hit the market, I was all over it. And what a disappointment it has turned out to be. It is thin, runny, and spurts out of the nozzle in an uncontrollable manner. Instead of that lovely gel consistency that is so easy to apply (in regular Prime Time Foundation Primer), this is watery and much harder to manage. Shaking the bottle has no effect (I thought perhaps the product had separated and that shaking would blend the ingredients back together). I won't be purchasing this product again.
WOW! It really brightens.
This product is amazing. I noticed the first time I used it that it really does make your skin seem brighter. Foundation stays all day long when you use the primer first. Love it!
I am disappointed
I read all the wonderful reviews about this primer, and couldn't wait to try it. I have used it for two days now. I apply one pump, as the directions stated. It's soft and feels good while applying. It dries easily. Other than that, I see no difference. My makeup looks the same, it doesn't seem to "brighten" my skintone, and my makeup seems to wear at the same rate as it did before. I will keep using it for a while, but I'm still wondering what the heck I'm supposed to be seeing.
This product must be shaken, mixed well, then apply and let dry. Your skin feels like Satin with a Soft Hint of Color.
Great product under foundation.
Not going to lie...it's pretty incredible.
This primer is great. It's got a different texture than the original primer, which I love, but it's a good difference. I was concerned that it would be either too sparkly or too golden, but it's neither. It truly does make your skin "wake up." It honestly just looks like I got a GREAT night's sleep and that I've been moisturizing like crazy. I wore it alone the other day, with mascara and chapstick because I was running late, and my coworkers even commented that it looked like I had had a great night's rest. Makeup goes on over it like a dream. If you enjoy the original primer, I really think you'll love this, too!
I love this new primer! My face seems to be illuminated and the foundation looks great on it, I love it!
