              Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

              this is my favorite primer! adds just the right amount of tint to wear alone with finishing powder or underneath a foundation for more coverage. the packaging is terrible though... once you get towards the end it doesn't come out of the pump evenly and kind of explodes with each pump and makes a mess. and there is no way to get every last drop out so I end up wasting it! a squeeze tube would be so much better.

                      "BB" stands for "Beauty Balm". This product has multiple functions, including tinted moisturizer, skin perfector, primer, and sunscreen! It is a great option for those seeking to simplify their makeup routine. :-)

                    I just started using complexion rescue tinted hydrating gel cream in the suede. should I also be using this under it first and the veil also. Not sure first time to start using tinted cream instead of foundation but so far I love it.

                      A:

                      Because Complexion Rescue features built-in priming benefits, there is no need to use an additional primer, though you can certainly use in conjunction with Prime Time BB if that is your preference. Setting with Mineral Veil is also optional, but if you have oily skin, you may prefer to set your makeup with Mineral Veil to ensure lasting wear and to keep skin shine-free.
