      Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

      This product was hard to get out of the bottle, the pump was aweful. No matter how much I shook it or let it sit, it would just pump air the first few, then barely get enough product or the product would shoot out across the bathroom. It went on smoothly, but I was oily so quickly, and my makeup broke up under it. This really didn't do anything for me.

      Separated

      By gabrielle

      from ma

      Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

      I tried this and it was separated out into an oily mess. The pump would send a spray of brown oil all over my bathroom when I tried to use it. No amount of shaking would right it. I was extremely disappointed. I tried it many times and it was always the same result.

        Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time BB Primer-Cream Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30:

        I absolutely love this product. The only bad thing would be trying to use the whole thing. The pump part doesn't go down to the bottom of the bottle, I usually end up using a makeup brush to get the rest out.

            You only need a tiny amount, so it lasts a long time. It tints just enough that I can get away without further foundation coverage (weekends). It goes on smoothly and evenly - not streaky. I use it under Bare Minerals foundation, as well as other cream foundations / CC creams.

                Only complaint is it dry out and gets thick and clumpywhen about a 1/4 left will scrape out and add moisturizer to it so I can use it all!

                • Q:

                  Are the only differences between this and the Prime Time Original Foundation Primer that this is tinted and has SPF? Does it feel the same and perform the same as the Prime Time Original Foundation Primer under powder foundation? I have used the the Prime Time Foundation Primer and loved it. I like the idea of adding tint and SPF, but only if it feels and performs the same. Thanks.

                    It is always possible to have slight variation with shades, however this seems unusual. We recommend reaching out to the brand directly with your proof of purchase if you are concerned. Otherwise, you can return the product if you are within the ULTA return policy.
