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.

I love the lasting power of this product but... i have oily skin and i feel like this makes it a bit worse... maybe its just my skin but i normally don't wear a powder over my liquid foundation but i seem to have to now! but i still love how long my makeup stays on when i use this product!!
It was okay. Not a big fan of bare minerals anyways. It did have a natural finish to it though so there is one thing I'll give it. It was also very easy to apply but it just didn't do anything special. So me personally, I won't buy it again.
I don't mind this primer. It's not nessecarily my favorite but it definitely does the trick. It is long lasting and a little goes a long way. Kind of expensive. Would probably not buy again but got this as a sample.
Excelente primer!! Y'all just don't understand. Everybody needs to try this at least once and you'll fall in love just like I did. The makeup and everything come out even after you use this. It doesn't feel as if your using allot of products on your face. It's very light and amazing.
This product is one of my favorites! I found that if you want a product that helps hide pores and makes your makeup look as natural as wearing none, this is the product you need! If you don't believe me give it a try, you will not regret it!
I never used to use a primer but I received bare minerals primer in a mystery box. It seems to make my skin softer and help my foundation set. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't like to pump out of the bottle so I have to unscrew the cap.
I love this primer. I have used other primers in the past and some flake off after applying makeup over it. But this is very light and doesn't. It gives a very smooth surface to work with and helps my makeup stay in place all day long. This is the only primer I now use. Love LOVE LOVE IT!!
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?
