                              • 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?

                                  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.

                                  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.
