Prime Time Foundation Primer
Think outside the box
When I used this allover my face, my skin protested. I am in the small, unfortunate group of people whose skin does not like silicone in any form. However, I have found ways to use this product and now it's a must have in my makeup bag. I mix the tiniest bit with the bareMinerals loose eye shadows and they are instantly transformed. They become incredibly saturated, they blend like a dream and they last all day! Also, I mix it with my well-rested powder concealer to create the most beautiful, full coverage, creamy concealer that never flakes or settles into fine lines. I love that no product has only 1 use in this line - just get creative!
It does the job
I would use the foundation, thinking that's all I needed, once I tried the foundation with Prime Time, it was flawless, seamless, and stayed on my face by the end of the day. Once you pump it out, you'll think it'll feel greasy. It's an abnormal substance, but once it's everywhere you couldn't tell you have it on. I love this product and it's a must-have for my makeup routine.
First Time User
So I got this in my starter kit and absolutely love the way it feels on my skin! Just put in an order for some more!
I like this product but..
i wish it was a tad bit more adhesive-able.. It's has NEVER done me wrong, I'm just extremely picky..
I love this please don't take it away LOL.
Works under ever foundation!
Funny that I didn't even like this product when I first tried it. I have found through trial and error that if you put this on and wait a few minutes before applying either powder or liquid foundation on top this works wonders! I have a few lines on my forehead and some nose pores that I am not too fond of and this helps so much with both of those problems! I love the silky and weightless feel and I love that there is no color to this so everything looks great over top of it! Not to mention this is less expensive than a lot of high end primers that I have tried and didn't like at all! Also lasts all day on me even in the hot summer! One other great factor, this doesn't irritate my sensitive skin! Give it a shot! Love it!
Pretty Great Primer
I don't usually use primer, but I recently started using BareMinerals and got this in my starter kit. I've only used one other brand primer in the past, so I don't have a lot to compare this to, but it seems pretty great! A little bit (a pea size drop) really goes a long way. I think it actually does minimize pores and it definitely feels silky smooth and makes my BareSkin foundation go on smooth. I also like that it's fragrance free!
lasts all day.....
i love my bare minerals, and this makes me love them even more!! will not wear my minerals without this primer. creates a great, smooth surface and lasts all day. used to "lose" my face by noon!! now it's lasting til bedtime. :)
Great product - very poor delivery system
I am a 62 year old woman and I love this product. Have used it for several years and hate to be without it. I had never used a primer before and got this in a trial size. I was amazed how soft and smooth it made my face feel. My makeup goes on so much smoother and even. I can definitely tell if I forget to use the primer before putting on my makeup. No problems with breakouts or oily skin. HOWEVER...I hate the delivery system. I never had problems until the last few bottles. At least the last 3 or 4 bottles the pump quits working and won't dispense the primer. At first I thought it was just because the product was low, but when I open the bottle there is a lot of product on the tubing so I end up just putting it on my hand with the tube. When the product is really low you are scraping it out with the tube or your fingers. I have even cut the bottle open to get to the last of the product. I had read another review that said you need to shake, shake, shake the bottle to get the product to dispense. I never had to do that on any of the bottles I had received before, but thought ok I will try that. Didn't seem to help. The last bottle I received I shook before EVERY use from the very start but it did not help at all. Actually the pump on this last bottle was useless. I would pump and pump and get very little product. It takes so little of this product to do a terrific job I feel that I am wasting product and my time and energy. Seems like a company as terrific as BE could come up with better packaging for a great product. I too am very frustrated and would prefer a tube delivery system so I didn't constantly have to work so hard to get to the product.
I've never considered using a foundation primer, that is until I switched to Bare Minerals. I received this as part of my get started kit, and after one week of use I immediately ordered a full-sized version because it worked so well.
It has completely eliminated my need for a morning moisturizer (if you have REALLY dry skin, you may still need one). It feels SO lightweight, like I'm wearing nothing at all. It is literally like smoothing silk across your face. It does not clog my pores, and it makes everything feel smooth and even. For those who are wondering, the product itself is 100% clear, so it will work with ALL skin tones.
I work 10-13 hour shifts, and my make up is still perfectly in place when I get home. I've forgotten to take my make-up off before going to the gym a few times, and even with all the sweating and face-blotting, my make-up still looked good (no smearing!). I am excited to try the new BB cream version once this one runs out :)
So silky, I love it!
I love this primer since it was first applied to my face months ago by a BE consultant at a boutique. It's so silky and velvety - it makes my face feel wonderful. I know there's a hydrating primer offered but I wish this one is also more hydrating. I get really dry patches around my nose and mouth, and after applying moisturizer, applying this primer doesn't help too much. Overall, I still love how great it makes my face feel after application.
