          This is a great primer. It decreases pores and smooths skin. It helps makeup to go on much better. I highly recommend.

                I bought this because I have oily skin and large pores and wanted to try the Complexion rescue and thought it would pair well with it. What a mistake! this stuff makes my pores look even larger than usual, makes my face a greasy mess and does not keep makeup on at all. I am wondering if I got a bad batch or it just doesn't work for me. either way, I am returning it.

                              Great product for the face but wouldn't recommend use around eyes for people with sensitive skin. Application feels like water then when dry creates a great matte finish for any foundation.

                                      You can use Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer underneath any of bareMinerals' foundation formulas including bareSkin to ensure a smooth finish and mattified, prolonged wear.

                                    I currently wear the concealer as my first layer and matte powder foundation as my second layer of makeup. Would the foundation primer go on before the concealer or before the foundation?

                                      We recommend applying primer after moisturizer and before your concealer, foundation, and other makeup for best results.

                                      Both Prime Time Original and Prime Time Oil Control feature clear gel formulas. If you have oily skin that is prone to breakouts, we suggest using Prime Time Oil Control.

                                      Apply one pump for an even layer of this lightweight primer all over your face. You can use your fingers, or a makeup application sponge or liquid foundation brush, if you prefer. Once dry, follow with bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation.
