      Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer:

      I purchased this on a whim and am glad I did. I'm new to a lot of beauty related things but I wanted to try something to brighten my pretty dull, dry, complexion. A little goes a long way and I like that it adds just enough illumination to make my skin look healthy without being too much.

        I have used a lot of primers in my day and this one is right up there with the $60 ones. I love that there is a little tint in it so I can use it as a base without foundation some days.

                          Although you can certainly use this brush if you prefer, the dual fiber bristles of the Perfecting Face Brush (Item #: 2272522) perform better with cream-textured products like Complexion Rescue, so we recommend using that one for best results! :-)

                      • Q:

                        I have large pores, oily skin and break out easily but I don't want my skin to look dull and drab which is what happens with the primer I am using now. I would love the luminous effect this would give me. Is this primer ok to use or would the oil control primer work better for me?

                          A:

                          It depends on what your main concern is; if controlling oil is your main concern, then we suggest going with the Prime Time Oil Control primer, since it will help to mattify skin and keep you shine-free. You can still achieve the luminous look using one of bareMinerals' All Over Face Colors to set your foundation, such as Pure Radiance, which features a brightening soft peach luster:
