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 was okay. I used this product in combination with a liquid foundation but it is made to be used with their mineral make up. i did really like the texture of this product. i did not like the packaging, i thought it was wasting product. My makeup looked great after using this.

Pretty good, nothing amazing. I don't feel the need to buy a different brand, but I don't always use this before applying makeup. I go for a very natural look and don't worry about concealing every flaw or contouring, so I usually don't use enough makeup to feel like I need a primer.

Review for: Bare Minerals Prime Time Foundation Primer more...
I did not like this product at all. I felt like it was greasy and thick. I felt like my makeup was slipping and sliding while applying on top of my greased up face. I was surprised at this because I've read so many reviews about this being a great product for dry skin. I would never buy this again, and would go the extra step to say this is one of my least favorite primers I've ever tried.

This is one of my top favorite primers, however, I would not recommend to people with oily skin because seems to me that it may make your face look even oiler. I have combination skin and this primer goes on so smoothly and keeps my make up looking good for most of the day.

So obsessed!! I just got into the BareMinerals line and this primer is a must-have! My makeup lasts and looks perfect all day now (before it would all look blotchy and gross) and I am so thankful this was recommended to me. I've tried other primers but this one is my favorite.

They have different formulas, you are bound to find one you love! My favorite in particular is the brightening primer. It adds a luminous dewy glow to the face that I love. I feel like my foundations blends so much easier with this primer on than if I were to not use any at all. It helps my make up stay on much longer throughout the day, and it helps me not have to touch my make up as well!

My roommate has this and I absolutely love it! I constantly go into her room to get a couple sprays, it works like magic! It does work better than any other primer that I've tried, I just haven't had enough reason to justify spending the money on it because it is rather pricey.

I got this as a free gift when buying a bunch of new makeup. I absolutely fell in love! I never used a primer before, so I didn't know what to think of it. It was the best decision I made because it kept my makeup from looking uneven. the only problem I have is that it doesn't work as well with some of the face lotions that I have, as it feels like my makeup comes off easier during the day.

I have the 'neutralizing' version of this primer. My skin is oily, but can also be combination as the seasons change, and I have to say, this primer does not do anything to help neutralize and acne or scarring, nor does it help keep my makeup smooth. I actually find it flakes off at least on my skin, so I really don't prefer the neutralizing version of this. The original formula (Clear silicone-style base) does work a lot better, but unfortunately, the NEUTRALIZING version leaves my makeup looking like it's peeling off.

I love, love, love this primer! I have very dry skin and this takes that problem out of my hands! My face does not dry out throughout the day. A little of this primer goes a long way and it really does expand the life of your daily makeup. I highly recommend this product.

Does this primer actually work? I have only had one primer actually work on my skin.

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?
