    Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

    This has been the best primer to use to prevent my oily shine from happening in the middle of the day! Compared to Smashbox, Benefit, and the Too Faced products, this one works best. And when I say I have oily skin, I mean OILY! It's not heavy so mixing it with my foundation and a finishing powder doesn't give me that caked on look at the end of the day.
