        I use this product every time I apply a full face of makeup. I really like it. Only use one pump-a little goes a long way. Allow it to dry prior to applying your foundations. I top it off with a setting spray and it lasts all day!

          I bought this product after bare minerals discontinued their neutralizing primer that I would use everyday. I thought that this would be a good aternative, but I was wrong. It made me break out like crazy, which is really strange considering bare minerals products have never made me break out before. I really wish they would bring back the neutralizing primer

            Bought for a little shimmer. Meh. Should use iridescent powder from Bare Minerals line instead. Little disappointed. Will not buy again. Still love the classic oil control primer from the line.

                A:

                Although you can certainly use this brush if you prefer, the dual fiber bristles of the Perfecting Face Brush (Item #: 2272522) perform better with cream-textured products like Complexion Rescue, so we recommend using that one for best results! :-)

            • Q:

              I have large pores, oily skin and break out easily but I don't want my skin to look dull and drab which is what happens with the primer I am using now. I would love the luminous effect this would give me. Is this primer ok to use or would the oil control primer work better for me?

              • Staff Expert

                A:

                It depends on what your main concern is; if controlling oil is your main concern, then we suggest going with the Prime Time Oil Control primer, since it will help to mattify skin and keep you shine-free. You can still achieve the luminous look using one of bareMinerals' All Over Face Colors to set your foundation, such as Pure Radiance, which features a brightening soft peach luster:
