    This is a makeup primer. I've used it before and just bought it again. It just feels amazing on the skin - like silk. Just a pea sized dab goes over the whole face.

          I use primer in the summer to help my makeup stay on a little longer in the heat and sun. I've been using about a month and feel that my foundation stays on and looks good longer during the day.

            PERFECT TO USE ON A DAILY BASIS WHEN I DON'T WANT TO WEAR A LOT OF MAKEUP AND JUST WANT A 'NATURAL' LOOK. I BLEND IT WITH A LIQUID BRONZER (OR USE BAREMINERALS POWDER BRONZER) FOR ADDED COLOR.

                      • 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.

                          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.
