Review for: BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer, 1 fl oz more...
This is such a nice, tacky, long lasting, smoothing primer! The only downfall is that you should ONLY use it with bareMinerals products. I’ve found that a lot of bareMinerals products only work well with other bareMinerals products. But I do enjoy this.
I love this bronzer because it’s so blendable, so soft and creamy even though it’s a pressed powder, it’s pigmented, and holds it’s color throughout the day! I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good bronzer. Plus, you get a lot of product in this for its price point, it’s not a bad deal!
I have two of these! One I like to use for blush and the other I like to use for bronzing! These brushes are well made, not cheaply made like some brushes you can find at the drug store. I love these brushes because of their density! They pick up a lot of product and they apply it, too! You don’t lose product with these - it doesn’t get eaten up by the bristles. I recommend trying these, for sure!
If I could give zero stars... I would. This is honestly the worst foundation I've ever used in my life. Nothing I do can make this foundation work. And your foundation should work for YOU, you should not be working for it.
I have combination skin that is sometimes a little sensitive from acne medication but gets very oily. The t-zone looks very shiny at the end of the day even after using very matte foundations and blotting and powdering throughout the day. I normally use a normal or even hydrating primer just to keep the skin balanced and prevent too much irritation and oil backlash from drying out the skin too much.
No primer I own works with this foundation. EVERY SINGLE HYDRATING AND MOISTURIZING PRIMER CANNOT COMBAT THE DRYNESS OF THIS MESS. Using a damp sponge cannot prevent the patchiness and caking of this foundation. My forehead is a desert and even layering my go-to dewy foundation on top has not helped one iota. I am a dry, deep pored, mess and there's nothing I can do about it.
I initially felt guilty about purchasing this foundation at all because it excludes people of color. But I'm extremely fair and fair neutral is a perfect match. I also have allergies and Tarte is one of the few brands that makes products that are safe for me to use. But none of that matters cause this is just pure garbage. I will forever swear by the tarte™ shape tape contour concealer but I will never purchase this foundation again. I threw it away after just 3 uses because it was so awful. Total waste of money, total disappointment. A formula change is needed immensely. The tarte™ shape tape hydrating foundation is NO better.
Always my go to highlighter! It’s highly pigmented, goes on without falling out, and lasts forever! I love how it looks reflecting in the sunlight. It’s a perfect mix of gold and pink tones, but not too much, so it’s perfect for all types of skin tones. Will have this in my collection forever!
THIS IS MY CHILD! Confirmed. Prepare for a lengthy and loving review because I could go on about this baby all day. I have been wearing double wear for more than 2 years now - we are in a committed relationship clearly! I'll speak about a few things - coverage, longevity, finish and overall effects on the skin. COVERAGE - the coverage of this baby is outstanding, I have relatively highly pigmented freckles and for full-glam I cover them, this product could cover a murder case with one layer. The longevity of this product is out of this world, it is in the name! Where I do prime and set this product, there is really no need to. I have been on nights out, come home and forgotten to remove my makeup and woken to find it literally still perfectly intact the next day - not the point, but amazing. I have tried its 'rivals' such as Armani luminous silk and honestly the coverage and longevity did not hold up any expectations in comparison to this product! The finish is definitely directed to the matte side of the spectrum, which is something I look for in a full coverage foundation as I will always be setting it with powder. Where it is definitely not a weightless foundation, I personally cannot feel it on the skin, it sets incredibly well and does not leave any tackiness or weird residue - I actually feel it is way more weightless than every other full coverage foundation I have tried, controversially. It is one of the only foundations I have found to have been friendly with the products I apply over top of the base. It works incredibly with other liquids, creams and powders. Many foundations have issues with contouring powders/bronzers over top but NOT THIS GUY. Incredible product, incredible shade range, minimal skin trauma when switching to the product from another foundation, the perfect price
If you're looking for a dewy, more natural finish then this is a beautiful foundation. Matte lovers beware! This foundation is still wearable for people with oily skin, but it does require a setting powder. Even with setting powder, it will not be matte. Instead it's more of a satin finish.
I have oily skin especially in the t-zone. Surprisingly, I can wear this foundation no problem without primer, but I do use setting powder. It gives it a glow, kind of resembling the natural oils your face produces through out the day. Without powder this foundation can be very dewy.
The staying power is amazing. It doesn't transfer much even when I blot it with tissue paper. It doesn't clump, or disintegrate throughout the day. It's a thicker formula, so it does settle into wrinkles a little bit. Thankfully the formula is very blendable even after hours of wear, so I can always buff the foundation back into the skin. It's an easy way of getting rid of the wrinkles!
The coverage is beautiful. It's enough to even out redness on the face. Prominent dark spots will be light and faded, so it’s good for acne as well! I would say it's a medium to full coverage.
I use the tone in "warm nude," and I think it is gorgeous.
I love this foundation, but it's not for everyone. The dewy finish, and its price point doesn't make it the most flattering foundation on the market, but those of us who appreciate it adore it.
My faaaaavorite foundation! It’s just as good as any other high-end brand foundation, if not better! I love the medium to full coverage and lightweight feel of this foundation. I used to be hesitant paying for something that promised to wear for a certain amount of time, but when this says 10-hour wear... it’s TRUE! I just adore this foundation, especially when it’s used overtop of the Smashbox Photo Finish Radiance Primer and applied with the SEPHORA COLLECTION Pro Airbrush #55 brush :)
