        I bought this for the summertime to help combat my oiky summmer skin.Used this under powder foundation and liquid foundation with bad results. Even tried powder on top of my liquid foundation to set it. My skin was oiler with 2 hours more than without using this primer. I looked like I was melting. Returned for a refund.

                        Yes, Prime Time Foundation Primer should be applied to your face prior to foundation application, while Well-Rested CC Eye Primer should be applied to your under eye area and eyelids prior to eye concealer and eyeshadow application. We hope this extra info helps!

                        With typical daily usage, we estimate one bottle should last most users about 2-3 months, though this may vary due to individual factors such as amount used per application and frequency of application.
