bareMinerals Prime Time® Brightening Eyelid Primer
- "If the affordability and quality of this primer is still not enough to make you want to buy this product, then maybe the subtle sheen that shines through to your eye shadow will help. Or the brilliant all-day hold that lasts to the millisecond until you want to remove it. How about the perfect, non-runny, non-goopy consistency that lacks an oily formula? This primer is almost faultless." in 7 reviews

While I really like this primer for staying power, it is just sooooo glittery. I don't know if I just got a bad batch, but it leaves so much glitter on my eyelids. Hoping I did just get a bad one and it's just supposed to be shimmery? Will continue to use it to use it up, but probably won't repurchase if it is this glittery.
I have oily lids, and this does the job. I've noticed that I only need a little dab for each eyelid; too much product, and it doesn't work as well in my opinion. It does brighten the eyelid, which is really nice even wearing it alone, and I notice my eyelids don't get an oily mess.
Saying that I am in love with this product doesn't even explain it. I received this as a gift with an eye makeup set at the beginning of my makeup addict days. Now I can't imagine life without it. I often use it as my go-to no-makeup makeup look. Just the littlest bit goes a very long way and it really brightens my eyes. It also works amazing as a primer and keeps my shadow right in place.
This eyelid primer from Bare Minerals is great! When I am in a hurry I just through the brightening eyelid primer on and it gives me that little bit of color that I need to add to my look. The only thing that I have not enjoyed about this product is I seem to run out of it quickly, but that could be because I use it so much!
I love this product. I don't use it everyday because it's a small tube but when I'm going out for the evening it's the first piece of makeup I apply. I like the brightening version best because it's a light color with some shimmer and most of my shadows have some shimmer as well. It won't let your eye shadow smear or fade.
This is my favorite eye primer. I have oily eyelids and this primer prevents shadow creasing and smearing as the day goes on. It's colorless and allows my eyeshadow colors to remain vibrant and true to their shades.
Absolutely adore this primer. Lightweight, wore it alone all the time because it really helps the dark circles as it's slightly tinted. It helped keep shadow lasting longer, but my eyes are inset and still creased that's why I chose to take the benefits of the brightening. Love it.
This is a gold shimmer style of eye primer so it is great if you are doing a bronzed summery look or a gold look. I use a matte or plain eye primer usually, but this one is fun to use for shimmery makeup looks. Easy to use and apply.
This eye primer was nice. But I prefer one that cancels out the redness or veins on my eyelids. This one does look good on it own as a bit of shine. It's a white pearly color with very small glitter/silica looking specks in it.
I love, love, love this primer! It works well, and it keeps your eyeshadow on and in place all day! A little bit goes a long way as well, so it lasts a long time. I don't really notice a difference between the brightening primer and the regular though when using it. The brightening definitely has a sheen to it, but when it is covered up by eyeshadow, I don't notice a difference.
