Love this product! Application is flawless and lasts all day. Helps prevents breakouts too. I use it before I apply my BB cream. Doesn't have to be used with bare minerals powder. One bottle lasts me almost 6 months. I would definitely recommend!
I use this every single day, with or without Bare Minerals foundation (sometimes I use a different brand). It works so well, I actually switched from Smashbox primer to this one after testing it out and realizing how big of a difference it made! I would definitely recommend it to everyone. It keeps your foundation smooth and fresh all day long.
I received a sample of this primer in a set/kit of mineral foundation that I had bought. As far as silicone type formulas go, I really enjoy this one. It's perfect under the mineral foundations from the same brand, and I have found it works well under ones I have tried as well. I would re purchase.
Thai primer is so smooth! I love using the brightening one by itself. The keeps my foundation on all day. I am normal to dry so this one works perfectly for my skin. I notice a huge difference without primer.
I've only used about a handful of primers and this only does a few things. It hides my pores perfectly until the middle of the day when I feel like I'm sweating off my make up. I use setting spray as well so maybe it's that?
Great primer to use under loose mineral make up. I also use the yellow tinted one which covers red, splotchy skin. Bought at a Bare Minerals outlet store, and it frequently co.Estes in the basic starter kit. Highly recommend Bare Minerals primer if you're doing loose powder type foundation.
Tried this product in a value set. It was only ok for me, would not re-buy however I did use the product up. I am not a regular primer user as I have not found one that is basically worth the extra step of applying it. I have normal skin, and I just did not see the benefit of this product.
Q & A
It is worth the price? I have the elf primer and would like to upgrade. Thanks!
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?
