                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.

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