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 stuff worked really well! My makeup lasted through a 12 hour day and I only had to touch up once or twice. I loved how smooth and velvety the product felt on my skin!

I bought a sample of this on my last makeup binge, and I can't wait to buy more of it! It keeps my makeup right where I need it to be throughout the day and doesn't make my skin dry or oily. LOVE it.

Helps make your skin flawless. I am a big fan of Bare Minerals and for the first time tried their foundation primer and fell in love with it. It helps me to hide my acne marks on my acne marks.. ;)

The feeling of your skin after you use this primer is so great! A really nice smooth silicone feeling that helps apply my BareMinerals Original foundation even better! Totally recommend for dry skin.

I got the kind for oily skin and it worked well for smoothing out my skin, though it was not too long lasting and after a few hours my skin looked really oily and my foundation started to separate.

This primer was super oily. If you have a problem with this, then this primer is NOT for you. This stuff did not keep my foundation on at all. What a let down, especially for the money I spent on it.

Definitely a favorite! This isn't very mattifying - but it does smooth the look of pores and even our skin's texture. It's silky smooth on the skin! If you have combination skin this will work well for you! Definitely a repurchase❤️️

I cant review to see if the foundation lasts long or not because i couldn't keep it on my face. doesn't feel nice on the skin, it kind of just sits there and doesn't blend with the skin, also feels greasy. maybe its not for my skin?

I love this primer. It is not to heavy like some primers, when you put it on it makes your skin super soft. I can definitely see a difference with coverage when applying Prime Time vs. not applying

It blurs imperfections, creates a really smooth layer over your skin, a little goes a long way, and it lasts a good while! I would recommend, but you could get the same performance for cheaper from a different brand I'm sure.

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?
