    Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

    I really wanted to try a primer to calm down the red tones on my cheeks. I have Lupus & the red 'butterfly'cheeks are a symptom. Anyway, I do love Bare Minerals and their foundations/powders are one of the only brands to give me nice coverage of the red. That said, I really hated this primer because it made my pores look HUGE and gross. I also felt the texture was a little too dry. I use thick moisturizer (Philosophy TIAB), but this actually made my makeup look thick and cakey. The coverage of the red was only so-so. I returned it today and bought Ulta brand flawless finish primer, which I tried in a sample and loved the coverage and consistency (and price).

    AMAZING

    Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

    This primer is my absolute favorite! I use other primers other days and wish I hadn't. This primer works so amazingly (if that's a word) it fills in my pores SO well, and my pores are pretty big. It cancels out my redness and my makeup looks so good afterwards. I will buy this for forever (:

      I have mild Rosecea and this primer removes all the excess "pinkness" from my cheeks! A little goes a long way so it does not feel heavy on my skin, either.

          Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

          I suffer from redness (undiagnosed rosacea). I have tried different primers but this one calms the redness so it doesn't show through the makeup. It doesn't make me breakout and it's super lightweight. I bought this primer by accident. It was a blessing in disguise. I recommend to anyone with redness. This is absolutely amazing.

          This is the Holy Grail for Dark Spots

          By SamanthaKatelyn

          from Charlotte, NC

          Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

          I have dark spots and acne scars that I couldn't keep covered when using the original primer or oil control primer. Once I found this, my face was noticeably more evened out, the redness reduced, and my dark spots less noticeable. In combination with the bare minerals powder foundation and bisque concealer, I can get medium to full coverage that lasts all day!

          It is a little oily and yellow. It seemed pretty good when the sales person applied it. I don't use it.

              I have oily skin and diff. texture of skin on my face caused by burns and the product didn't stay on those areas. Stayed on non oily areas well.
              Although I do believe it would cover well on other type skin.

                Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralizing Foundation Primer:

                An Ulta associate recommended this to me to help cover redness on my checks and nose. It does not fully cover redness, but definitely works great in conjunction with foundation and eliminates the need for concealer. I'm unsure about how much it prolongs your makeup though, and it does take a while to dry after application.

                It's not bad, but I have a lot of sundamage on my face and it doesn't do much to cover it. It is just a primer, so I don't expect it to do all of the work, but I thought maybe using it first would be a good step.
