In walks the Prime Time Foundation Primer... well it felt like it at least... I spoke to a B.M. associate and she told me this was my missing piece... I have been HOOKED ever since. I am normally a person who blends products, brands, I mean... a primer is a primer right??? Well it just might be, but this one here has me hooked. My makeup has not made it's way to my laugh lines and it actually helps it stay put on my face with the heat and sunshine. The best part is, a little will cover your entire face!!! Makeup was usually just a routine I would do, so I didn't scare people... but now I am actually having fun because I found something that works, that is light weight, breathable, and long lasting. I've circled back to Bare Minerals for years... but these two products here... have changed my view.
I use this with every kind of foundation; loose powder (which is what I usually use), liquid, even the really thick foundations and they have all stayed. I also put this on even if I'm just wearing blush or a bronzer, it seems to light up my face but at the same time there's no reflective shine.
If I wear foundation without this, it usually rubs off pretty easily on my clothes and sits in the lines of my face. The Prime Time Foundation creates a virtually smooth surface to work with. Even on sweaty areas of my face like my forehead and nose, it keeps my foundation looking fresh all day!
