          I had bought a primer late last year that I LOVED. It was formulated to help with redness and boy do it work. Unfortunately I lost it, it never showed up. So I went back to get another one. Not remembering exactly what it looked like I had help. This is what I received. I didn't remember that it came tinted, but it did talk about redness reduction that I thought that I just remembered wrong. Nope, the one I wanted got discontinued and this is what bare minerals put in it's place. And it doesn't do nearly the job that the other did. The redness didn't go away with either the redness formula or through the tint. While I have fair skin, what I need to put on needs to be strong enough to do the job. Otherwise I am simply layering on product that then makes me look like I'm wearing the massive amounts of makeup from the 90's. If you only need a small amount of coverage, then this should be fine. It does go on nicely. But if, like me, you need more, go with a different brand.

                    I tried using it as a foundation primer. The make-up specialist swore she loved it and highly recommended it. I didn't like the texture, the color, the feel or the look of the product on me. It seemed to "pill" when I put on my foundation.

                            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.

                            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.

If that isn't feasible, then we would recommend going with the Fair shade as you can blend it with your Matte foundation.

                              "BB" stands for "Beauty Balm". This product has multiple functions, including tinted moisturizer, skin perfector, primer, and sunscreen! It is a great option for those seeking to simplify their makeup routine. :-)
