Prime Time Foundation Primer 4.4 5 71 71
The Best In 2005 my daughter had a 60th Birthday Tea for me and instructed the guests to buy me Bare Minerals make-up. They did and it was the beginning of a wonderful relationship. I have even skin tones, no more red blotchie, pealing, dry flaking burning skin only hours into my day. The eye make-up does not give me red itchy, swollen almost shut eyes "Allergy" eyes and the mascara is creamy, smooth and wonderful to wear. Two things I need. A larger bottle of Prime Time Foundation Primer and a remake of your Make-Up Carrier that was red in color, measured 8.5" long by 5.25" wide by 5.5" tall. At the 3" height a zipper zips 3/4 of the way around for access. Inside are three-tiered plastic "fishing" type connected trays for make-up storage that pull out sideways for access to items that are below. My plastic tray set-up was accidentally smashed by a nurse in the post-operation area following my back surgery. I have used a tube of Super Glue to put it back together, but it is a mess and very fragile. Please re-make this wonderful, handy, useful item for make-up storage. My Daughter Sells Bare Minerals at her shop in Tillamook, but is unable to locate the trays or larger Primer for me. Thank you for any help you can give. Grandmommy 09/01/2013
Stays put This primer is wonderful for your makeup and truly makes it stay put for the whole day. Only a little dab of this product is necessary. 07/19/2013
Prime Time Foundation Primer - What a difference I just received my order including the Prime Time Foundation Primer and I am VERY pleasantly surprised. I did not expect the results I got. Even before I applied the foundation, my skin had a youthful look and even color. Applying the foundation was noticeably easier and even and the final result was beyond my expectations. I highly recommend this product and it has turned a skeptic to a believer. I love, love it! 06/14/2013
A must-have! I always use the Prime Time Foundation primer before using my original foundation. It smooths my skin, preps it and gives it a smooth surface to apply foundation. This product makes a huge difference and I never go without it! 04/28/2013
SMOOTH I have tried all the primers out there and I have gone back to the best one- Prime Time! I too am an older woman and need coverage but not in the lines and wrinkles!!! This is the only product that smoothes your surface -without being sticky- for flawless application of whatever foundation you use. Will never be without it! 04/25/2013
Great product! My daughter in law introduced me to Prime Time Primer and I do love it. Your face feels wonderfully smooth after applying. When used in conjunction with other Bare Essentials powder and blush it gives a great look. My only disappointment has been the pump on the Primer quit working after less than 30 days. Otherwise, I would highly recommend the product. 04/09/2013
Great addition for older skin!! I have used Bare Minerals for quite some time, but noticed as my skin matured that it wasn't settling quite the same way on my skin. One of the consultants in the BE store suggested trying this primer, and I am deeply thankful to her. I actually tried two steps: I increased my moisturizer a bit this winter (my skin is drier this year than ever before) and added the primer before putting on my makeup. What a difference it has made!! This stuff makes my skin feel like silk. My BE makeup goes on very smoothly and looks fresh all day. I get a lot of compliments that I have such nice skin, especially for my age, and I am glad to have a makeup that keeps my complexion looking light, fresh and luminous. Definitely try the Foundation Primer; it makes a big difference! 04/08/2013
Senior ladies need this I'm 70 years old & new to primers. Never knew they existed. But I found this to be a must. A moisturizer leaves my skin moist & it grabs the powder. The primer gives a smooth slightly slick finish that the foundation is evenly attracted to. It also helps the foundation swim over wrinkles & creases. In the beginning I used too much. Now I squeeze out a bit slightly larger than a kitchen match's head on one index finger. Then rub my two index fingertips together. Finally touch them on mid forehead, next to my nose, my chin, & on the side of my face in front my ears. Then go back and spread from all the places you touched. I get a even, smooth coat that's perfect for the foundation. I just bought the jumbo container & am pleased at the bargain. 04/01/2013
Overall a Good Primer Lately, I have been trying different brands of primers and moisturizers (Philosophy's Hope in a Jar included#. BE's Prime Time Foundation Primer seems to work the best for my dry and oily skin. The other brands I have tried seem to set into my fine lines and wrinkles. Prime Time evens out my flaws and dry skin. It also helps my makeup stay on longer. If I go a day without putting this on before my makeup, I can tell by the end of the night #my makeup will look like its almost melting off due to my oily skin). When using this product, my makeup stays firm and intact throughout the whole day. Didn't give 5 stars because I want to try other BE products to see if I can find something that works even better for my skin. 03/26/2013
New version is not improved I have used the Foundation Primer for sometime and have loved it until I purchased the new improved version. It appears to be a watery solution as opposed to the smooth texture I was used to. It does not go on well and really doesn't help with making the foundation application smooth. Bring back the old version! Much better product. 03/24/2013
