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.

I use bareSkin® Pure Brightening Serum Foundation and found that applying this alone, after hours of wear, in the hot Florida Sun that my makeup would gather in my laugh lines and creases... NOT CUTE!! But I really loved how the foundation didn't make my skin break out - so I wanted to find something to compliment this since I didn't want to give up on the foundation just yet...
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 was curious about this and decided to try it... Great product! My skin is nice and smooth once it's set and my face powder sits nicely on top. There's no cakey feeling or look. Definitely a keeper in my makeup bag!

Pretty good product. Keeps the makeup together pretty well. I would say I use it on days I want to have the length (time wise) of staying on longer than normal. I definitely would purchase this product again. Like it a lot.

Listen this product is my staple when it comes to primers! I love this stuff! Very easy to apply and it makes my power foundation look so much better. I would absolutely recommend to others if you haven't tried yet.

This product really helped keep my makeup on. I had it tested on me when I was color matching at Sephora! I personally am just not a fan of the primer textures but this is a great product if you’re looking for a primer!

This primer is pretty great! I use this with the porefessional by benefit, and it looks great. This primer really helps my makeup last longer and I think it helps me stay matte throughout the day. I will buy again!

I LOVE this primer, it's my absolute favorite and I wear it every time I do my makeup regardless of how simple or intricate it is. It blurs, keeps my skin moist with getting too oily, and keep my makeup on all day!

Review for: Bare Minerals Prime Time Foundation Primer more...
You only need a small bead to cover your whole face, and it is so smooth too! Unlike other primers that feel really greasy and heavy, this was light and made my skin extremely soft.

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!

I love the way this feels! It's not oily at all which is why I love it! It is long wear. I can tell a difference compared to other primers. It's a little pricey but it is worth is for a good primer! I recommend it!

Very smooth, and a little bit goes a long way. Does keep makeup in place. However it wasn't for me. I have oily to acne prone skin and this broke me out. I would still recommend this to other people but just not for me.

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?
