Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - null
Better than the original
I was not a fan of the original Prime Time primer. It was too slick and oily for my already oily skin. But on a whim I decided to try the Prime Time BB Primer-Cream. It's awesome. Today's my first day of using it and it did a wonderful job filling in my crater of pores. Between, this new primer and the matte foundation and powder, my skin looks gorgeous and I've received so many compliments at work. LOVE IT! This will replace my current primer. :)
First Bad Experience with a Bare Minerals product
Last night I bought Bare Minerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream and tried it for the first time this morning. It is the only new product that I tried. About 15 minutes after putting my make-up on my cheeks started to burn. Now I am very fair and have extremely sensitive skin, so other people may have no problem with this product. From the reviews I read before this it seems this is true. However, for me, my face continued to burn and after about 30 minutes I started feeling sick. I ran out of my office to the bathroom and had to wash my make-up off. My face is still burning a bit and my cheeks and under eyes are very pink. Like I said, this is the first bad experience I have ever had with a Bare Minerals product, but I would advise against this product if you have very sensitive skin.
This is the BEST foundation primer on the market!
Bareminerals have outdone themselves again...I love this primer! I have combo skin and with the oil-free foundation primer my makeup lasted for about 8-10 hours before my skin looked shiny and oily. With this new primer my foundation looks great for 15 hours! I work 12-hour shifts so its nice when my foundation can last that long!
Great BB base
I use the medium color and am in love with this. The medium color looks like it may be a little dark/orange on the fingers but once on your face it melts in nicely! Love that it has spf. I've been using it for a couple if weeks now. Texture is very smooth and silky. Coverage is nice, not as full coverage as other BB creams I have used but great as a BB primer and then on to a light dusting of matte BE foundation. with using the BB primer it has provider a longer wear than a regular primer. I would highly recommend this product.
It came out thick at first then it was normal then it came out watery and squirted all over. I tried shaking it and it made no difference. I should probably return it. I like that it leaves my face smooth looking. It doesn't provide the coverage of the foundation but its a good look if your in a hurry and you have time for the BB and some mascara. I have red undertones and I find that the neutralizer primer does a better job covering the red. I tried layering the neutralizer with the BB, but it turned out to yellow.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
This is my new favorite primer! I got the Light and it's a great match for me. Lately, all I have been wearing on my face is this primer, concealer and my brightening pearl perfect light mineral veil. The texture of the primer is so light and fluffy...it's just fabulous! Thanks BE for such an awesome product! ♥BE :-)
Love love love!
Love this product! I've noticed that it really controls my oil better than the oil control primer. I use it with the Ready Foundation everyday and sometimes by itself on a Saturday with mineral veil. I have to touch up less on longer days. Using less foundation and mineral veil is a plus!!
I bought the light although it is on the yellow side but I do have yellow undertones. This product is perfect for people with light complexion with red spots or with rosacea as it mask them pretty well. You can wear it without make up but it does make your makeup look flawless and last longer. I use it with my READY pressed foundation.
The only reason I did not give it a full five heart rating is because I have used it once. I will see if I continue to like it with daily use. I have very sensitive skin that when my skin does not like a product, my skin breaks out but so far, no problems. I actually like this primer better than the neutralizing foundation primer as that one feels more heavy on the skin.
Exactly what I have been waiting for
I was a little leery to try this, but it was love at first use. I need something to wear just around the house to cover the brown spots, redness, and some other facial skin issues I have been having due to side effects of a certain medication I am taking. This is exactly what I need! I have such oily skin--this helps combat that--and it gets rid of the redness and helps hide the spots, all in one. Just one little drop goes on my face at the beginning of the day, and voila! My skin looks better throughout the day, without having to put on primer, then foundation, then mineral veil. I cannot wait to use the product during the summer months. Thank you for this! Please keep this product in stock! Now, if only you will bring back Poof for Lips, I would be so happy. (I am allergic to all of your lip products right now, which either contain fragrance or plumping ingredients.) Poof was made up of only 3 ingredients and I have found nothing like it on the market. Bring back Poof! :)
I love this primer! Gives a light coverage and dewey feel to the skin Its a "no makeup" make up. I have even mixed it with faux tan matte powder for extra color . Works great!
It's worth the purchase
Helps in the reduction of fine lines, gives a glow, corrects redness and seems to help hold moisture in. I have psoriasis and have had trouble this winter with foundation caking on my 'patches'. I am using the light and it is perfect for me. It has reduced the appearance of the dry psoriasis patches. No breakouts which surprised me since the only primer I was able to use before was the original. I did have a little trouble with getting it to squirt without going all over but as long as I shake it a little it seems to have corrected that problem.
So far so good!
I pre-ordered this product in both shades. I love the Medium as it adds a bit of tan to my skin, the Light is definitely "yellowy." I loved this the first week I used it. I am starting to get uncharacteristic break-outs though so I am going to try not using this for a few days to see if it stops.
Also, by the end of the day it gets cakey due to the sunscreen in it - just as sunscreen gets if you apply makeup over top of it.
All in all good product.
Blends Well with the Original Foundation, Amazing!
I am in love with this product! It goes on silky smooth and really helps the original foundation blend seamlessly into the skin. My skin in quite a bit drier now, and this has infused my skin with that Bare Minerals glow.
I got the light and it is very yellow, but in a good way. The yellow helps to combat the redness in my skin.
Great product! Keep up the good work!
