Pair with bareMinerals bareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation and bareMinerals Matte Foundations and you'll be golden. Doesn't clog pores and looks natural.

                            The BareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer is non-comedogenic and should not cause acne. We recommend consulting with your physician with our listed ingredients in case you are concerned.

I really loved the yellow tone and am looking for an exact alternative. I bought the Prime Time Original Primer but it's no good, the texture is completely different and is colourless. Please help.

                            Hi,
                            Thank you for your question. The Bare Minerals Prime Time Primer for Oil Control has been discontinued. The New Primer that takes its place is Blemish Remedy Mattifying Prep Gel. While this is in the Blemish Remedy category, this is still a suitable product for oily skin types. The lightweight gel glides on effortlessly and immediately dries down to an invisible matte finish, prepping skin for a smooth makeup application. It is formulated with Aspen Bark and Tea Tree oil and a Peptide Complex to help promote clear healthy looking skin. It also features an oil-absorbing mineral to help keep the skin looking fresh and flawless. Hope this helps!

                          If I'm going to use a full coverage foundation would there be any benefit to using the brightening foundation primer vs the BB tinted one?

                            Hi,
                            The Brightening Primer will add a golden luminous healthy looking glow underneath your foundation even under a full coverage finish. It also helps combat dry patches, fine lines and excess oil and minimizes the appearance of large pores. The BB Primer will diminish the appearance of discoloration, uneven skin tone and imperfections while providing and SPF of 30. Hope this helps!
