              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.

              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.
