Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer
BEST PRODUCT EVER!!
I felt compelled to write this review to let everyone know about this fantastic product! I'm 43 years old and I have a few large pores and redness on my face, and this product covers both! In fact, my skin has improved by using this product, and I have received numerous compliments about my skin lately, and that's saying a lot!
If you're hesitant to buy this product - hesitate no longer! You'll love it!
I know this is just a primer, but this provides great coverage. I have quite a bit of red in my skin tone, especially my nose, and I found that this product alone does a great job in neutralizing the redness. I have used green powders in the past to neutralizing the red, but I thought because of my skin tone the yellow was going to be a bit too much. I was wrong. I absolutely love this primer.
I purchased this today, I do agree with other reviews a little thinner than original primer. But being very fair skin helps coverage of redness. Like my face not feeling heavy with to much product on face.
So far, my favorite BM primer
I was just at the Bare Minerals counter yesterday, and I was going in to try the newer Ready Foundation for the first time. I went in with no makeup on, and she wanted to show me this primer before she applied the makeup. And so I put it on. It feels like it would be really wet/greasy, but once applied all over, it immediately dries and does not leave a residue. I did notice a longer lasting wear of the makeup, but she did tell me the new ready foundation is hydrating so its last-wear is generally longer than the older original formulas. But, I liked the way it felt and it did seem to help with the redness! Did it's job, and I would purchase and keep using.
Not good for oily skin
I have redness on my face and this does a good job at covering that up. It also does a good job making my skin smooth for foundation. But it makes my skin very oily after a few hours of wearing it!
Feels like a Beauty Balm..but it's not
I purchased this primer in a local boutique. I have a bit of redness to my skin so I thought I'd give it a try. I like it..it does not have the feel of the original primers. This one is a bit thinner, so you actually use less, in my opinion. I like the way my foundation looks with it..and I did use less foundation using this product so I give it an A. It is a good alternative...I'd buy it again.
It Does the Job
I did try this in the boutique and liked it. The suggestion of the lady who helped me said it would help me use less foundation, which I was using Matte formula in Golden Fair to hide redness already. I did go into the store specifically looking for this product, but I am going to return it.
Like some others have mentioned, it just doesn't have that luxurious super-silky smooth feel that the regular foundation primer has. I went ahead and got the Redness Remedy to do the job instead of this product.
I tried it in the store thinking I could adjust to the different feel of the primer, but I really don't want to. It's still a good product that does what it says, but I prefer the feel of the original, which I have now purchased in jumbo size :)
I don't have particulary red skin, but sometimes in the colder months it can get a little chapped and red. This is not as silky as the original primer but it is smooth and creamy and reminds me of a bb cream. The yellow color instantly neutrlizes any redness and just like the orginal, my foundation glides on smooth and stays all day. Even if you don't have rosatia or other redness of the skin, this is great for people who live in snowy, cold climates like myself.
New favorite primer!
Normally I go back and forth between the Oil Control Primer and the Brightening Primer, and I like them both, but this primer is my new LOVE! I dont have redness in my skin but I do have uneven tone and scarring. At first I thought this was going to look super yellow on my already yellow-toned skin, but it blends beautifully and really evened out my tone! I LOVE it!!!!
Please sell this in larger sizes!
I love this stuff, it reduces the amount of foundation and concealer I use. There is a trick that I use when applying...don't rub it into your skin completely as you do with the regular Prime Time. I leave some of the color to soak into my skin in the areas that are more splotchy than others. It's great that it doesn't leave a characteristic make-up line behind as other foundations have a tendency to do. I don't imagine this product would be for everyone, and I was skeptical at first, but I'm glad I tried it! Perfect for those of us with yellow undertones in our light to medium skin color. Oh, and it's non-greasy too so it's great for oily skin as well. I'm very happy :)
Not at all what I expected
I ordered this online the minute I saw it. I needed more of the original primer, and I have uneven skin tone and redness, so I thought this product would be perfect. It feels nothing like the original primer. And I love the feeling of the original primer. I feel like it evens out my face as far as any bumps and dry spots. This primer also has color to it, which around my nostrils looks like I picked the wrong color foundation. I will definitely go back to the original primer.
Works ok and does decrease some of the redness but smells funny (and not in a good way). It also doesn't go on as smoothly and feel silky like the the original primer. I will continue to use it because I bought it but would not buy it again. If you are thinking of buying this I would recommend trying it in a boutique first to make sure you like it.
I was never a believer that primer would do anything other than cost me more $ boy o boy was I WRONG! If anything it helps me save $ it keeps my make up in place with less touch up during the day and as a busy working mom I can't always touch up and now I don't have to worry. Helps with my pores also makes them almost disappear and it neutralizes my red marks I get( side effect of medication) if you have invested in BE make up u should greatly consider this also it made a beliver out of me hopefully u too!
Bismuth Oxychloride Causes Cystic Acne
I have rosacea and I thought I finally found a product that neutralizes the redness & allows me to use less foundation. I knew about this product since the beginning of 2012 from QVC & was so excited to have it released in BE stores. But WHY OH WHY does Bare Minerals put Bismuth Oxychloride in so many of their products???? It causes cystic acne. BE advertises all natural-good for you/sleep in it makeup, but why include such a nasty ingredient? Bottom line: I can't use this product, even though i really really want to, because it contains the bismuth.
This product gets an A+
I went to eat with my grown children and they were amazed at how great I looked. This primer covered up my imperfections and made me look 10 year younger.
the name says it all
This product is worth ever penny. My make up stays put. My skin feels softer when I use this product before fondation.
You need this
This primer is silky smooth and light weight. I waited to purchase, but can't remember now why. It balances redness and helps the foundation stay on all day. I really like this product and will continue to purchase it in the future!
Prime time neutralizing foundation primer
This was part of a kit. I like how it covers the redness on my cheeks. I'm glad it's now available to purchase on it's own.
Best Primer I've used!
I've tried all the foundation primers that bare minerals has launched and this one is by far the best!! I love it because it neutralizes my redness and doesn't leave me skin oily or greasy. This stuff is great and I would recommend it to anyone!
Love this Product!
I purchased a "Refresh" group of products last Spring and the Prime Time Neurtralizing Primer was included. It is by far my favorite product to date! Not only does it prepare your face for foundation, it also hides any redness or dark spots. It truly neutralizes your skin to perfection. I love this product and am soooo happy to see it available by itself and not in a kit. Thank you Bare Minerals!!
A Must Have
I love, love this product. I have lupus and usually have a red rash on my face. Nothing covered it. I purchased the neutralizing foundation primer and OMG. My face was all one color. The redness was gone and stayed gone all day. My skin looked so even and flawless. I could have simply worn the primer without any foundation. It is that good. I will never go without this product!! Truly an amazing product.
This product is Ahu-mazing!!!!!!
I was one of the lucky people who ordered this early via QVC, and I cannot imagine NOT using this product! First, like all of the Prime Time foundation primers, this baby slides over your skin effortlessly, and provides the same all day round the clock use that we've all grown to love so dearly. The thing that drives this above and beyond is the fact that it just simply removes the redness from your skin! I swear it's like magic in a bottle. A couple of pumps and viola! - all of that redness is gone. Trust me, if you have ANY redness to your skin you owe it to yourself to try this.
Oh - and a little tip that I use: 1 pump of the Neutralizing and 1 pump of the oil control, mix them together and you'll have a matte, red-free finish in approximately 2 seconds!
