    Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer:

    Ive never used a primer before so I cant compare it to others but I like it. It goes on smooth and feels good. I think it helps my BareMinerals BB foundation go on better. Doesnt seem to last all day but I have that issue with pretty much everything I wear. It seems to be gone after 4 hours.

                I use this product every morning and I've really enjoyed it. It's okay at neutralizing redness but not amazing. It goes on easily and makes my skin super soft and young looking. I love the dewy look.

                  • 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?

                      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:

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