            This primer is fantastic. I have used a wide variety of primers, including the regular BareMinerals Prime Time, but this primer trumps all! This primer helps hold my foundation as well as keeping shine down considerably.

            My daughter suggested my make up would last long if I use a primer. I pick this one because I just other Bare Minerals makeup . I can say that it does help my make up stay and help control oil. It is a bit pricey, but it does work.

                Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

                Does anyone else have had this product dry in Your face and peel off ?? I thought at first that I have waited too long to put my foundation on it but later on in the day it started to make my foundation dry up and look all weird ... It sucks bc when I bought it the first time it was great but the second time around it felt like it was a waste of money it just gets all dry and it created these white patches in my face like glue ...

                  I have oily skin even though I am a senior. When I would apply Bare Minerals powder, without primer, all my pores showed because of oil. Primer controls oil and powder goes on smoothly, stays on!

                    I was very excited when I purchased this primer, as I have very sensitive and oily, oily, oily (I really cannot stress that enough) prone skin. The primer went on ok and my makeup looked fair. About 30 minutes after applying, my oil production increased dramatically. It looked like I had rubbed lard on my skin. It also cakes up over my few little dry patches (because lucky me). There are so many better primers on the market, and with this price tag, spend a few extra dollars and try something else.

                    Does not prevent oiliness. Very unhappy!
