      Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

      Not the greatest primer for mattifying, however, its not the worst. It keeps me shine free for about 6 hours but after that the oil starts to show through.

      Great Primer

      By SLG

      from Wilmington, NC

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

      I have one issue, and it's that I'm not seeing oil control parts of the time. I wonder if maybe it's a lack of exfoliation or maybe my setting powder isn't doing the job. Sometimes it really works, and sometimes it doesn't. I never change my routine at all, so I will continue to use it.

                This primer is fantastic. I have used a wide variety of primers, including the regular BareMinerals Prime Time, but this primer trumps all! This primer helps hold my foundation as well as keeping shine down considerably.
