Great product for setting make-up while minimizing pores and evening skin tone. Easy application pump. Only complaint is when product gets low it is hard to get out without opening top of lid which causes quicker drying out of product.
A little goes a long way for this primer. I use smaller than a pea size and its enough! I have large pores and this covers them up. It keeps my original powder foundation on and makes it extremely long lasting. I would definitely recommend this!
This is so smooth. I use it over moisturizer because of my dry skin, then buff my Bare Minerals make up over it, and I always get compliments on my skin. Not my make-up, my SKIN. That is how smooth this primer makes the make-up apply.
I simply will not wear make up without Prime Time. Very little product needed for full coverage, Works great around lips and eyes. Removed fine lines and gives a flawless finish. I mix just a little with my foundation for super smooth application. It is well worth the price. Make up stays put all day even in the Texas heat.
This is a fantastic product that I use anytime I wear foundation. it always the foundation to go on much smoothr and to stay put with no problems. I have used several others previously but like this the best and will re-purchase.
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?
