Makes my make up look bad after 30 min

    Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

    I put this on, and in 30 minutes I'm having to touch up my make up. I makes my make-up separate. YUCK!!!
    I have tried EVERY primer out there for oily skin.
    None have worked yet.
    This one is the worst. After I bought it my girl friend told me she didn't like it.
    I should have listened and returned it.. I just live pretty far from an ulta right now.

    Holy grail!

    By Pimanee

    Pros

    • Easy To Apply
    • Goes On Smoothly
    • Lightweight
    • Long-Lasting
    • Matte Finish

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Acne-Prone or Oily Skin

      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

      This is the best product for controlling my really oily skin! It keeps makeup in place all day and doesn't let my oil seep through almost all day.
      There's no such thing as a miracle product, but in combination with a good oil control routine, this has become a #1 staple.
      I don't know why this product doesn't have five stars, it's amazing.

      Best Uses

      • Oily skin

      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

      I have extremely oily skin and read mixed reviews about it. I bought this anyway simply because NOTHING else was working. I put this under my foundations and it works beautifully. I'm not as oily throughout the day and when paired with a matte or oil control foundation, it is the best product I've ever bought for my oil.

      Pricey, but it WORKS. It'd be hard to find a cheaper dupe. For now, I WILL repurchase.

      P.s I wear my makeup for at least 8+ hours each day. Although I'm not completely matte, I'm very, very close. Looks more luminous than oily.

        Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

        I bought this product because I had a sample of Original PrimeTime and loved the texture, but have issues with oiliness so I thought I'd give this a try. The texture isn't as smooth as Original and doesn't feel as good going on, but it is a good primer. After this one is gone, though, I will be going back to the Original.

        I was excited to use this because I use all of Bare Minerals foundation, but it broke me out after the first use. I switched to Lorac "I'm so Sensitive" for my everyday primer.

                Been using this product since it came out. I've tried lots of others & this one has the best light feel. It allows me to put my Bare Minerals on right after application..instead of waiting for it to dry.

                    I've used this product for a while now and I am sadly disappointed. I have normal/oily skin and my face gets extremely shiny and oily throughout the day. I was looking for a primer that would help control this and the sales associate told me this was a good buy. I do not think this product worked AT ALL. My face still looked like an oil slick when I used it.

                        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.
