Q & A

Prime Time Foundation Primer 4.4 5 93 94
love this product I absolutely love this product and how it makes my skin feel. It creates a silky, smooth surface and helps my bare minerals make up go on more evenly and last all day. 07/29/2015
Excellent primer I've been using this since it first came out. At the time, it was the first such product I'd ever heard of: Face primers were very new then. It gives skin an extremely smooth, silky finish that allows any kind of foundation to apply evenly and last longer. It also helps act as a barrier and prevents makeup oxidizing. In the days before eyeshadow primers, I would put this lightly on my eyelids and dust with Mineral Veil to keep eyeshadow on my oily lids. Two small pumps of this will cover my entire face and neck, so a bottle lasts a long time. It doesn't cause any skin irritation or breakouts. The only downside is you can feel it on your face, and it feels kind of heavy. All dimethicone/silicon primers have this issue, so it's not a reflection on the quality. The quality is excellent. 07/28/2015
Velvet love <3 Nothing feels like the bare minerals original primer. It instantly makes your skin feel smooth and velvety, it actually relieves any irritation you may have. It works at toning and evening your skin and really does what it's supposed to, PRIMES your face perfectly. My makeup sits beautiful on my skin after using it and lasts all day! 06/21/2015
Velvet in a bottle I have never used a primer before this one, so I have nothing else to compare it to, but I really like it! It makes my face velvety soft and prepared for my makeup. I might try other primers in the future so I have something to compare it to, but I don't think I should since I like this one so much! 06/19/2015
Love this Stuff!! This is the best product and I love how it makes my skin feel. It is not heavy and does not make my skin feel caked up. I love the way it helps my make up look. Totally worth buying! 06/17/2015
Prime Time Primer This is a GREAT product - however, the pump bottle is terrible. The product separates, so it has to be shaken, which is fine. However, what remains in the little pump tube is the 'oily'-feeling clear liquid - none of the 'filler' product that smooths your skin and helps the powder to cling to your skin. If you continue to dispense like this, pretty soon you're going to end up with only the thick stuff in the bottom, which then of course clogs the tiny tube. My fix is this: when I receive it, shake it well, then I dispense it into 2 of the 'club-size' tubes. I have a tiny spatula-type tool that came with a little travel kit that I use to scrape out all the product. This does the trick, but it is a nuisance. 04/27/2015
Not for oily skin It goes on silky as people say but 4 hours later my face is so shiny and sweaty looking, it's disgusting. So I can't give a proper review for normal skinned people but if you have extremely oily t-zone like I do, then DO NOT use this. 04/02/2015
Great Product I got a tiny tube size of the product, and was amazed at how long it lasted. Most of all, I loved how it set up my face for foundation. It has become a "must have" item for my dressing table. 03/11/2015
Wouldn't go without it I have dry skin, and even after moisturizing, my skin still feels too dry to put on my foundation. I don't go a day without Prime Time Primer. It's silky smooth, a drop goes a long way, and my face feels youthful again. The foundation adheres beautifully after Prime Time. 03/08/2015
Primer that works! I have tried a lot of primers but this one takes the cake! It helps to diminish the look of pores and fine lines. All while creating a smooth canvas for foundation application. It will help to increase the wear-ability of your foundation. This primer does NOT clog pores. It glides over skin without pilling, and blends in. Give it a minute or two before foundation application and you're set all day! I love how good it feels over my moisturizer and on my skin. This has become a staple of mine. 03/05/2015
