    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Primer Ever!!! I've been using this for a long time now, and I'll tell you what, whether I'm outside in the Garden or sitting in the Sun, this stuff holds your makeup, especially concealer!!! I would be sweating in the garden, but just a blot from my towel to remove the sweat from my face, and my make up is still Perfect!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For that perfect dewy look! I bought this a few months ago on an impulse, I was looking to change how bright and dewy my skin looked without it looking like it was oily and the brightening primer hit that perfect blend I was looking for. I was a little concerned with how shimmery is looked before I applied it but it struck that perfect balance of a subtle shimmer and that fresh faced look I was going for. The brightening primer left my skin feeling soft and smooth throughout the whole day and I was wicked happy I made that impulse purchase, its become a great part of my morning routine and I've gotten so many compliments on how great my skin looks I'll never change primers again.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was so excited when I got this, but unfortunalely it is runny when you pump it out, and it also makes my skin a bit oily. I have gotten some breakouts since I have started using it also. I am so sad, because I wanted to love it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Samylee Just received this product in my last order,and can't begin to express how wonderful it is. It takes such a small amount and it makes your foundation glide on, and it DOES KEEP THE FOUNDATION IN PLACE FOR THE ENTIRE DAY! This product was a real surprise to me, because I was not sure if I wanted to order it, therefore I read the reviews and ordered it based on what most had to say about the product. So happy I did!!!! Can't believe that this product could make such a difference. It even makes your face look more radiant. Love, love this primer! Great job BareMinerals!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! I had read reviews from several sources recommending this primer, but it's hard to know what is hype and what is performance. I tried it today and the difference it makes amazed me. The first thing I noticed is that I needed much less foundation than usual, which surprised me. But even better is the glow it gave me! I am in my 50's and my skin has not looked this youthful since I turned 40. My face looks bright and fresh and my skin looks much younger. This stuff is magic in a bottle! Thanks so much, Bare Minerals.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unexpected, but Accepted So I actually bought this product on accident when I was trying to purchase my usual neutralizing primer. But after using the product several times, I am very satisfied with it; it manages to even out my skin tone and give a nice glow to my skin. However, after I use it, it makes my skin feel a bit oily. Now normally I don't have oily skin, so maybe I am just adjusting to the product, but for now, it makes me feel like my face is wet for around 15 minutes after I apply it. I would still highly suggest this product to a friend.

  • Should the Prime Time foundation primer by applied before or after applying a spf 30 moisturizer?

    Asked by: Bunney
    Hello Bunney, We recommend applying your SPF before primer. Allow your SPF to dry before applying primer for the best results.

    Makes my powder foundation cake on

    I am having a problem with it making my powder foundation around my mouth look "caked" on. Does anyone else have this problem, and if so how did you solve it ?
