            Use alono with matte powder bare essentials. Keeps face from being shiny most of the day. May have to "freshen" up once or twice depending on heat. Helps makeup stay put.

                Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

                I decided to try this since I started using bare minerals. It left white streaks on my face after it dried. It made my face tingle and itch. I usually use I man's undercover agent face primer. I guess I will be going back to that.

                  After searching high and low for a great primer, I finally fell in love with this one to help reduce shine while balancing my skin tone (without causing breakouts). I cannot say enough great things about this product!!!!

                  However, if you're looking for a fuller coverage primer, definitely check out Bare Essentials tinted primer :)

                        Not oil based like some primers that leave your face shiny. This has a matte effect that tones down any oiliness. Pump gives a certain amount which I love instead of having to judge how much product I am using.

                                Both Prime Time Original and Prime Time Oil Control feature clear gel formulas. If you have oily skin that is prone to breakouts, we suggest using Prime Time Oil Control.

                                A:

                                Apply one pump for an even layer of this lightweight primer all over your face. You can use your fingers, or a makeup application sponge or liquid foundation brush, if you prefer. Once dry, follow with bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation.
