      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

      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!

                  • 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:

                          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.
