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

This is a great primer for bare minerals makeup, HOWEVER the color is not that dark nor does it cover any blemishes. Yet it does make the foundation stay on and doesn't leave me as oily as other products do,nor does the color oxidize throughout the day.

                Moisturizer will cause mascara to smudge under eye. This helps to prime "over" the moisturizer, evens out my under eye skin tone and helps keep my under eye area from smudges.

                    I've only used this product for about a week, but I'm very happy with it so far! I have fairly oily skin and it does seem to help control the oil some. I've worn this alone and as a base for my bare minerals powder foundation. It gives nice, even coverage and I really like the way it makes my foundation look. It stays on all day, even after being sweaty and outside in the humid air. I had some trouble with the pump working at first, but now it's perfectly fine and I'm not quite sure what happened there...

                    • Q:

                      I wear Matte foundation in fairly light. Will this primer change the color of my makeup or does it smooth out imperfections? I do not like the original primer as it doesn't seem to stay on very long. I tried a little on my forearm and the fair seems to blend in better than the light color.

                        Hello Gorgeous! As always for anything shade related we recommend stopping by your local Ulta to get professionally matched with any of our complexion products. If that isn't feasible, then we would recommend going with the Fair shade as you can blend it with your Matte foundation.

                        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.

                        Yes, in fact, Prime Time BB Primer is intended to be used underneath your foundation. How to use: Apply one pump of primer, massaging an even layer all over your face for a skin-smoothing finish. Wear alone or under bareMinerals Foundation.
