Product Description

What it is:

FACE PRIMER MADE WITH NATURAL INGREDIENTS

Engineered to be the perfect companion to our award-winning ORIGINAL Mineral Foundation, Prime Time® is an effective face primer that is suitable for all skin types and forms of face makeup. Formulated without preservatives, oil, fragrance or skin irritants, it glides on like silk with no stickiness and helps to smooth out your complexion instantly before you apply foundation.

Infused with nourishing natural ingredients including vitamins C and E, soothing plant extracts and antioxidants, our popular foundation primer is an important prep step of your daily makeup routine that helps to reduce excess oil and the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores, giving you a seamless satin canvas for your foundation of choice.

Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone, Silica, Magnesium Silicate, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Calcium Pantothenate (Vitamin B5), Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract

Usage: 

For best results, shake the bottle well before each use. A little goes a long way with this powerful foundation primer.

Apply one pump to your fingertips and spread the lightweight primer all over your face and neck in an even layer with sweeping upward motions. Allow the face primer to absorb into your skin before applying foundation.

This helps fill in and smooth over the larger pores on my cheeks and ensures my foundation goes on smooth and light. The end result is flawless-looking skin that isn't left feeling greasy or heavy—just light, clean, and smooth. It's quickly become part of my makeup routine!

I absolutely love this primer! I have been using bare minerals for years, as it's the only makeup that's great for my combination skin. It makes my skin feel so soft afterwards and makes putting makeup on easier. I will definitely be buying this again!

kind of irrelavent to the actually review of the primer, but it makes a funny noise whenever you squirt it out. anyway, it's an okay primer. I've for sure tried better but it's not the worst. It works really well with bare minerals products, not so much with liquid foundations and what not. It's okay, I used it but whenever I ran out I didn't buy it again.

This is okay. It's clear so it works for any skin color. However, I find the pump very messy. It squirts out everywhere so I unscrew the whole top and use my finger to get it off the pump thing. It also goes on super greasy. It's okay, but I'm not opposed to trying another Foundation Primer.

I love this primer. I have to admit, I've only used it with mineral style makeup because I like to stick to what foundation matches the primer. It has been awesome, I'm so so touchy about pores and smooth coverage. This worked wonders with the loreal mineral powder makeup and my new bare mineral bare pro foundation. No pores, no weird drying or lines.

I love this primer!! It is one of my favorites. I don't use this as an everyday product because I do not have time to do all of my make up everyday but I use it for a night out and my makeup literally stays on ALL NIGHT LONG, even if I fall asleep in my make-up and wake up the next morning my makeup still looks like I just did it. It's amazing

One of my all time favorite primers! Works like a B.B. Cream to add a little color without being as heavy as a foundation. Easy to blend and apply with the bare minerals brush. I keep buying this every few months whenever it is on sale at ulta.

I like that it actually does keep the powder on my face a little longer, when I remember to use it. It does seem a little greasy, although after the powder goes on, I don't even care. The price is not super expensive and it does last a while (you're not supposed to use that much). I would recommend buying from Sephora so you can at least get points and free samples.

This primer is a must for BareMinerals loose and pressed powder foundations. Not only does it create a perfect base to the makeup; it actually helps extend the life of your foundation. You actually use less powder during the application and it stays on your face longer through the day! In my experience it works for dry and oily skin. I love it.

I've been using a lotion as a primer with my bare minerals powder but just found that they have this primer. Does it actually work? And does it make your face oily?

I usually only use primer during the drier winter months. Do you use this product under your makeup all the time?

I just started using this product and am worried about breakouts- has anyone experienced bad breakouts using this?
