    Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer:

    I love this primer. I use it with regular foundation. I am a photographer and my makeup rubs off easily. THis helps keep it set and gives my pores a nice smoothed over base. It's my fourth bottle and I got all my family hooked!

                            Depending on the actual amount used per day (assuming some days it may be more or less than one actual pump), this can last anywhere from 6-12 weeks.

                            The BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer would be a good option for you in addition to a setting powder or spray to help your foundation stay put. Please also note that we recommend possibly changing your moisturizing routine as your skin may need added moisture.
