WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

  • Is this product waterproof? Can I wear it swimming, and still be protected?

    Are there any lighter colors than light? I just got my box today. And the light color is still way to dark for me. I loved the colors you used to have. 

    Asked by: Sriley
    They made a fair shade that worked wonders for all the women in my family but for some reason they quit making it.

    Just received mine and consistency is very odd. Very watery. Shook bottle but still come out watery with pigment seeming to be separate from the liquid. Is this how it is meant to be?

    Asked by: Wendy100
    Hi Wendy100, We're so sorry to hear about your experience and want to help! Occasionally during shipment, a product may sit for too long in one position so we agree shaking the bottle well should alleviate any issues. We also suggest storing this and any product in a dark, cool place. If you have any additional concerns, please please feel free to contact our Customer Care team (calling 888.795.4747 M - Thurs 9a – 9p EST, Fri 9a – 6p EST) and they will be happy to assist you! Thank You!

    Hello! Did the formulation of this primer change? I feel like my makeup is sliding off. I've never had this issue before, and I've been using the same bare minerals products for years. Thank you for your time!

    Asked by: JeanettG
    Hi JeanettG, This is the same formula you've always loved but depending on the season makeup wear may change occasionally. We suggest allowing skin care products to fully absorb into skin before applying next step and we think you may like our Combo Control Milky Face Primer or BLEMISH RESCUE Anti-Redness Mattifying Primer as an alternative option. We also recommend setting your makeup application with our Dew Mist Shimmering Setting Spray or Mineral Veil Finishing Powder.

    I use medium beige original loose foundation powder. Will I want the light or medium primer cream color? Will medium be too dark?

    Asked by: amandaamanda
    Hi amandaamanda, You can wear either shade depending on if you prefer your skin a little lighter or darker, but we suggest trying Light first!

    Is this product non comedogenic? 

    Asked by: Deanna97
    Hi Deanna97, Our Prime Time BB Primer Cream Daily Defense does not claim to be non-comedogenic. As an alternative, we suggest our Complexion Rescue Defense Radiant Protective Veil, a non-comedogenic all-in-one lightweight hydrating veil which protects the skin from indoor and outdoor light damage, evens skin tone, and adds radiance: https://www.bareminerals.com/makeup/face/all-face/complexion-rescue-defense-radiant-protective-veil/US86003.html

    Asked by: JC18
