      This is a great primer...lasts longer than many other prestige brands on my very sensitive combination skin and does not irritate or cause breakouts at all. Only primer that has never made me breakout

      Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer:

      I use this product daily with my bare minerals foundation. Used together my makeup stays on all day and while it helps cover my dark circles, it lets my features show through like my freckles. Other primers I've used allow for total covering of my freckles and I didn't want that. It also helps minimize the appearance of large pores and my crows feet around my eyes

          Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer:

          I use this primer all the time and I am always cutting the bottle open when the pump no longer produces primer. I swear I can get not just one to two more applications but at least 3-4 weeks worth. I was shocked the first time, now I just know that is the norm with Bare Minerals and this product. Love the product, hate the bottle it comes in.

                    Hello Madison,

                    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.
