            Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Face Primer:

            I used to use the regular Prime Time Face Primer, but found this shortly after I turned 50 and decided I could use all the brightening I could get. I do feel that it makes my foundation go on much smoother.

                    Love the feel of this as I spread it on. It only takes a tiny bit but gives good coverage. It feels so silky!

                    I use this right before I put on any makeup and love the bright, natural glow it gives my face. Its very portable, which I like. But a bit pricey for a small bottle.

                      I use this product by itself just to cover up some of the redness I have. I always use this product under my foundation. I love the way I seem to have a glow not a shiny face.

                        What is the difference between this and the original primer?

                          The main difference is the finish; Original Prime Time features an invisible matte finish, while Brightening Prime Time features a luminous glow finish.

                          Absolutely! This product can be applied to bare or moisturized skin and worn alone without foundation to brighten the complexion and add an instant luminous glow.
