            • Doesn't control shine
            • Gets Flaky

            Best Uses

              Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

              This product didn't do anything it claimed to do. When applied, it left a white line around the edge of the application and if you are applying a foundation type makeup over the top, it seemed to get flaky. I'm better off just doing the regular old makeup application without the primer.

                Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer:

                This was the first primer I have tried. It did help keep my makeup on longer but it did nothing for oil control as it claimed. It did not blend with my moisturizer+sunscreen. I ended up taking it back to the store. Not worth the cost.

                  Always apply before makeup to prevent oily shine. Works great with the new Bare Minerals liquid makeup.

                    Pretty disappointed in this since it was so expensive . Applied in the morning , and by noon the shine was coming through. Had to apply powder several times throughout day to keep shine down. Avons's face prefect or works much better with all day control and it's a lot cheaper !

                          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.
