                    I tried under powder foundation and liquid foundation. Its a great product, it does the job. But it's not long lasting. Past 6 hour mark my face was so shiny. I have a combination skin.

                          It could be that you are applying too much. Try applying just a pea size amount to the entire face - this should help correct the issue! :-)

                      • Q:

                        I am 55 yrs old and have been using Bare Minerals for 3 years now. I need to find a less expensive primer, I was using Bareminerals Prime time foundation primer, but it is costly now with my senior budget. This worked well for me, I have combination skin and redness and no wrinkles yet, oh and I have very very sensitive skin. I tried a new night time moisturizer and my skin broke out terribly to it. My question: what do you suggest for primer and moisturizer too?

                          This product is well-suited for those with sensitive skin. It features a fragrance-free formula and contains soothing green tea extract. If you are seeking a moisturizer to pair with this primer, the Radiant Skin Daily Face Moisturizer is an excellent choice (formulated for all skin types):
