                      I apply everyday and love the way it feels and looks. It makes applying my foundation and eyeshadow so much easier. The primer has a silky smooth feel. I would hate to run out of it.

                      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Face Primer:

                      Maybe because I am new to primer, but it feels like it's oily on my skin (and it's not) and I feel as though I can FEEL the primer sitting there as a layer on my skin, instead of feeling as though I'm not wearing any make-up. It looks great, just need to.get used to how it feels, it does brighten up my skin in prep for the BareMinerals original foundation.

                          The main difference is the finish; Original Prime Time features an invisible matte finish, while Brightening Prime Time features a luminous glow finish.

                          Absolutely! This product can be applied to bare or moisturized skin and worn alone without foundation to brighten the complexion and add an instant luminous glow.
