    Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer:

    This is the first time I've tried this particular primer. Usually I use something with more tint for better coverage. However, that being said, I love this primer. I makes my skin look bright and healthy. I thought I would feel like a 13 year old girl with sparkles all over my face but that't not the case at all. I feel like my skin looks amazing and that my foundation becomes one with my skin instead of looking like its sitting on top of it. The shimmer gives a nice healthy glow. I highly recommend it.

    Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer:

    I love this primer. It makes my skin really smooth before I put my foundation on. It's tinted and it has a little shimmer to it. The shimmer isn't really noticeable once I put my foundation on, but I think that it makes my skin have less of a "flat" appearance since my foundation has a matte finish.

                          Although you can certainly use this brush if you prefer, the dual fiber bristles of the Perfecting Face Brush (Item #: 2272522) perform better with cream-textured products like Complexion Rescue, so we recommend using that one for best results! :-)

                      • Q:

                        I have large pores, oily skin and break out easily but I don't want my skin to look dull and drab which is what happens with the primer I am using now. I would love the luminous effect this would give me. Is this primer ok to use or would the oil control primer work better for me?

                          A:

                          It depends on what your main concern is; if controlling oil is your main concern, then we suggest going with the Prime Time Oil Control primer, since it will help to mattify skin and keep you shine-free. You can still achieve the luminous look using one of bareMinerals' All Over Face Colors to set your foundation, such as Pure Radiance, which features a brightening soft peach luster:
