                      Great product. Goes far. Very smooth. Helps foundation and or powder apply smoothly and evenly on skin. Much of the product gets wasted in the pump applicator tho. The trial size tube is a better choice.

                        Is this silicone free? I am asking because it has these three ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethicone.

                          The BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer can be applied with fingers. If you are looking to use an applicator, we recommend a brush similar to a flat foundation brush for the best application.

                          The BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer should create a barrier between your skin and the foundation, which should help prevent it from reacting with your natural oils.
