      I have tried numerous primer to try to control my very oily skin. This is one of the best. It goes on smoothly and last for a few hours before blotting is necessary.

      I use this primer under my foundation. It does make a difference! I no longer have to reapply my makeup twice a day, nor do I have to keep pressed powder with me. I do think it is expensive, but also a great product!

                  Cons

                  • Doesn't control shine
                  • Gets Flaky

                  Best Uses

                    Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

                    This product didn't do anything it claimed to do. When applied, it left a white line around the edge of the application and if you are applying a foundation type makeup over the top, it seemed to get flaky. I'm better off just doing the regular old makeup application without the primer.

                        A:

                        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.

                        A:

                        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.
