Firstly, BE Sure to SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE your bottle (and bootie) before pumping. Secondly, BE prepared to fall in luv!!! This primer will end the winter and mid season blah's, your skin will simply look a little punched up, the same lovely long wear of your make up is still there and there isn't a day or season that this product won't work!! My BE foundation shade is Fairly Light and sometimes Fair -- no problems -- not too Gold or too yellow. HIGHLY Recommend!!! You won't be sorry!!
First off, let me admit to being a BE addict! I never start my day without it! And, I absolutely love regular Prime Time foundation primer, so when Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer hit the market, I was all over it. And what a disappointment it has turned out to be. It is thin, runny, and spurts out of the nozzle in an uncontrollable manner. Instead of that lovely gel consistency that is so easy to apply (in regular Prime Time Foundation Primer), this is watery and much harder to manage. Shaking the bottle has no effect (I thought perhaps the product had separated and that shaking would blend the ingredients back together). I won't be purchasing this product again.

I prefer to mix the Brighten Prime Time with my original Prime Time for a subtle brighteness.
Peggy from Polk, Pa
I love this primer, I place this under my facial foundation, so light it makes you feel like you are not wearing makeup!
Alicia from GA
It does show some shimmer, which is why I purchased, but made my dry and sensitive skin drier. Returning

I have tried many primers and this one is by far my favorite! It gives you such a nice glow without looking like you played in glitter. It love that it makes my skin feel smooth and hydrated and not sticky like so many other primers do. I have nothing negative to say about this product. : )

After cleansing, I apply under foundation. Sometimes I wear it alone. It brightens my complexion

I really thought I would like this because I love Bare Minerals products. Unfortunately, this broke me out in pimples. I also didn't notice it doing anything for my makeup. It was kind of like a pointless cream I put on my face that broke me out.

It's great to use with a bronzer for the quarantine. It's all I use most days.
Marilyn from Mesa, AZ
Great product. Works great with makeup and especially good on dry, aging skin.

This is the best primer money can buy. It's hydrating and feels like butter on your skin. Makes your foundation go on so smooth and flawless!

I use the Original Primer. I really like this Brightening primer. It comes out looking peachy. I applied it, does not look peachy or any color. Also, it's not shimmery at all. The consistency isn't as silicon as the original. So I have use two pumps to spread all over my face. Overall, my makeup looks better. My face does look brighter.
I use BM original foundation.
Kenzzzer from Sulphur, OK
Love this! Gives my skin a nice glow through my makeup. Feels so soft on your skin as well.
Casslj16 from Texas
I have tried dozens of different primers, and this one is by far the best. It helps my makeup go on smooth and gives me a radiant look. However, the bottle is so small it does not last long. I wish I was getting more for the price.

It smoothed my skin, but I didn't notice any brightening aspects. So it works as a primer and make up goes on nicely, but are there are a lot better brightening primers on the market.
beautybekka from Raleigh, NC
I bought this product because I was looking for a good facial primer; however, I regret buying this. The formula is very oily and once applied to skin it makes your face feel like greasy silicone. After it is applied and foundation is used, it does nothing for your pores, the pores are still very visible. This product also caused me to get cystic acne. EVERY TIME I USED IT and I never have cystic acne.

My first primer I've used and I love how it smooths my fine lines.
coco from Illinois
I have combination skin so around my chin area I have dry flaky skin and my nose and forehead get really oily. I bought this thinking it would help. I applied my makeup and I saw no difference at all and my skin was still flakey and you could see my pores except for on my nose it did work on there but only for a little bit . So I thought, "maybe I should give it more time". within about 1 hour my makeup was melting off my oily nose and my forehead and it was creating fine lines.
BeautyLover from Raleigh, NC
I bought this product because of all of the good reviews and an employee at ulta suggested for me to use it. This primer clogs my pores and causes the worst acne. Cystic acne. I tried to use a moisturizer before the primer to see if that would help, but it didn't. Every time I apply makeup I wash my face before bed, or once I get home for the day, this product caused breakouts hours after applied and the next morning I would have huge blemishes under the skin. Also the pump does not work on this product. It work for the first two uses and does not work anymore.
Carrie s from Jonesboro Arkansas
Tried more and less expensive always come back. Feels great and makes foundation smooth.
MCL2056 from Lincoln, NE
I use this after moisturizer and before my foundation. It does an amazing job of adding and locking in moisture. When applying foundation, there are no dry patches and it doesn't look cakey!
Ginzer/SC from South Carolina
As I said in the pros section, this product goes on very smoothly and is not sticky or yucky. And, though it does have a very significant color tone to it, the tone is not seen on the face. I really like this stuff. Just wish it had an SPF in it.
