This was actually my very first primer that I ever tried, and I forgot how good it was! Prime Time from Bare Minerals is silicone primer that makes your skin incredibly smooth, minimizes pores, and helps create an even canvas for foundation application. It works great using powder products or traditional liquid foundations. Glad I came across a long lost old friend.
Cons: Two BIG cons.
First, this product is way too expensive and doesn't last long for the money. Women want to make their hard-earned income stretch as far as possible. This needs to be made available in a larger economy size.
Second, the packaging needs to be completely redesigned to a tube, preferably a 2 oz. size or larger (more product - less packaging). The pump makes it too difficult to get product out of the bottle when its low, and the product is (I say it again) way too expensive to allow a single drop go to waste. So I end up using the tube on the nozzle to scrape the inside of the bottle as clean as I possibly can before replacing it with a new one.
