              I've been looking for a primer that would help even out some redness. I tried several different good brands, but they didn't give the coverage I needed. This looks very natural and smooth.

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

              I love to look and feel of this product and the sunscreen is very effective. On the downside, it is rather expensive for how briefly it lasts. In addition, due to the thickness of the primer, a lot of the product remains in the bottle and can't be removed with the pump so the last couple of weeks worth of product requires pounding the bottle and scraping out the contents with the stem of the pump.

                    • 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.

                        A:

                        Because Complexion Rescue features built-in priming benefits, there is no need to use an additional primer, though you can certainly use in conjunction with Prime Time BB if that is your preference. Setting with Mineral Veil is also optional, but if you have oily skin, you may prefer to set your makeup with Mineral Veil to ensure lasting wear and to keep skin shine-free.
