A must have! I use daily and it helps to keep my bare mineral product on and last all day. doesn't dry out my face or cause break outs. I was very surprised the first time I used it. I purchased from Sephora. yes I would recommend this product to everyone.
I'm not sure if it was just the primer or if it was the whole line of facial products but my face broke out each and every time I attempted to use this. It looks good on application but the breakouts were not pretty.
One of my favorite primers of all time, doesn't cling to certain areas of the skin like some products do. Lasts throughout the day and keeps makeup in place all day
I love this primer! it makes your foundation go on so nicely and it smooths out those things called fine lines!! iam light medium and i have normal to dry skin perfect those dry skin gals. Its worth the price tag and would definitely recommend it to others
The consistency is kind of weird but I guess all primers are like that. It goes on really well and doesn't make your face oily. It's fairly easy to evenly spread it around your face and neck. Overall, it's a great investment.
This is my go to primer all day everyday! It really makes your make up stay on all day. This primer works the best if you use mineral foundation, but It does work with liquid foundation but your makeup will not stay in place all day. I would definitely recommend it as an everyday primer. I will say it is a little on the expensive side but it is so worth it.
I've been using bare minerals for a month now. It's even coverage helps coverage blemish and looks natural and not caked on. I also have oily skin at the end of the day but this product seems to keep my skin non oily.
I love this stuff. My skin feels so soft every time I use it. It allows my makeup to stay on all day without the fear of it melting off especially during the summer months. It's a little pricey but it's totally worth it as you get what you pay for.

I have normal to dry skin and like the formula of this primer. I think that it helps my make-up go on smoothr but have not noticed a difference in wear time. I don't think it's a bad primer but it's not my favorite.
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?
