      I apply everyday and love the way it feels and looks. It makes applying my foundation and eyeshadow so much easier. The primer has a silky smooth feel. I would hate to run out of it.

      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Face Primer:

      Maybe because I am new to primer, but it feels like it's oily on my skin (and it's not) and I feel as though I can FEEL the primer sitting there as a layer on my skin, instead of feeling as though I'm not wearing any make-up. It looks great, just need to.get used to how it feels, it does brighten up my skin in prep for the BareMinerals original foundation.

          Specifically asked the gal if it had sparkle in it. She replied no, just had color in it to even tones. That part is fine but hate the sparkle. Would not buy again & too much money to be mistakenly told. I also find it causes makeup to look clumpy as opposed to the original

                I use this product daily and it feels great gowing on. I did think it would tint my face just a bit but it doesn't. I still would reccomend though.

                    I love the feel of this primer and how it made my skin feel smooth upon application. However it is just too silicone-based for me, and caused breakouts. I regretfully returned to Ulta with their awesome return policy, and am trying another product recommended for acne-prone skin.

                      My foundation never lasted until I used this primer. Now it stays true all day! I bought it on a whim, and absolutely love it!
