    I don't wear a lot of makeup and this is lightweight, doesn't take much time to apply, and helps what little I do apply stay on longer.

        Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

        I buy Bare Minerals because I have chemical sensitivities. The original is fine, but this smelled bad. I'd bought it because it was recommended by Ulta staff.

        When I tried to exchange it for the original, I had to pay extra because my coupon had expired. Not happy, Ulta. Will probably buy direct from Bare Minerals now.

        • Light To Medium Coverage

        Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

        I bought this having previously used and loved the original primer from Bare Minerals. I have some redness and thought the neutralizing formula might help to correct the redness as well as serve as a primer. But I think I'll go back to using the original formula. I like the coverage and staying power of the original and didn't notice really any added color correction with the "neutralizing primer".

              Smell is terrible and doesn't go on smooth like other primers I have tried. Doesn't make my makeup last and have to use more then what the lady told me. I will go back to smash box primer.

                • Q:

                  I have the regular Prime Tome primer, now you have a neutralizer. Are they the same and do you use both? The consistency of the regular seems thicker.

                    A:

                    We would recommend using one or the other, rather than using both together. The Neutralizing formula features a yellow tint that works great to cancel out skin redness, if that is a concern!
