      Love the look and feel! The light color works well for me. I have very sensitive skin that is prone to rosacea. I use this mainly for the spf and the smoothing effect. I buff lightly over it with the Bare Pro in Aspen. Beautiful look!

        Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

        I use this product daily as it has great spf and a little color to help even out my complexion. I wear it alone or use it as a primer for the rest of my makeup.
        It is not thick like a foundation and should not be expected to have super coverage like foundation would. If I have any blemishes, I use concealer and/or powder over this product.
        I love it!!

          I have been using the product for over a year now and love it under my foundation. It makes a great base to prepare your skin for either powder or liquid foundation. It is sheer coverage. On days I am hanging out around the house, I wear it alone for minimal coverage.

                  • Q:

                    Would you recommend this product for oily skin? I wear the matte foundation and have tried the primer and primer for oily skin several times with no luck and the makeup didn't seem to stay on all day with using it. I am really just trying to find something to help with oily skin that will allow my makeup to stay on throughout the day without having my face look like a greasy mess.

                  • Q:

                    I am curious what consistency this product is supposed to be? The samples in the store are very liquidly. The product I bought is extremely think so much so that the pump does not work. I can't tell if I have bought old product that was returned to the store and put back on the shelf or it the samples have something added to them to make them so fluid. The difference between the two is extreme.

                  • Q:

                    I wear Matte foundation in fairly light. Will this primer change the color of my makeup or does it smooth out imperfections? I do not like the original primer as it doesn't seem to stay on very long. I tried a little on my forearm and the fair seems to blend in better than the light color.

                      Hello Gorgeous! As always for anything shade related we recommend stopping by your local Ulta to get professionally matched with any of our complexion products. If that isn't feasible, then we would recommend going with the Fair shade as you can blend it with your Matte foundation.
