    I have used the Prime Time without tint but I decided to try the Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer this time. I like that I can use this and not really have to worry about foundations, etc. I use as little makeup as possible.

                  I love how silky this primer is. It glides over my skin and keeps my foundation looking fresh. The "brightening" is very subtle on my fair skin, but I like the extra oomph during the fall/winter seasons.

                          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:
