                      You may prefer bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer (Item #: 2244486), which features a lighter weight formula that is oil-free, mattifying, and ideal for skin prone to excess oil and/or blemishes. Both formulas create a silky smooth canvas for makeup application.
