Most Helpful Positive Review No More Winter Blahs!!
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!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Disappointed in new brightening primer
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.
Reviewed by 712 customers I like it. My makeup looks better, my face is brightened
RaeKn from Wyoming
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.
I would buy this again!

Love this! Gives my skin a nice glow through my makeup. Feels so soft on your skin as well.
Great product but bottle too small
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.
I buy this product again and again
Patricia from Liverpool ny
I have tried many primers but alwsys come back to this one its hydrating without being oily evens out the skin tone. I use complexion rescue over it finish with the mineral powder foundation skin looked flawless and I am 63 years oldies
MnNice from MN
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.
Oily formula, causes cystic acne
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.
World definitely buy again

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.
BEWARE OF CLOGGING PORES
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.

Tried more and less expensive always come back. Feels great and makes foundation smooth.
Love this primer!
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!
It/s a keeper
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.
GOOD BUT NOT GREAT
dawn from indiana
glides on easily and is moisturizing but doesn't have the staying power --- i still prefer tarte's bb tinted treatment primer to this
Caly from Houston, Texas
I could not get anything out of the bottle. Pump would not work
ari from Orange County
My favorite primer ever. Pricey but worth it.
This is one of the best products i use.
Marie from Syracuse, n y
I will continue to purchase this product.
Grammy from Tulsa
My most important makeup item. I sometimes use it alone.
Helps my makeup stay on all day!
KateHop1019 from Evansville, IN
This primer helps my Bare Minerals powder stay on all day! It's lightweight, moisturizes, and doesn't break out my sensitive face. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great primer!
So happy I bought!
Carrie from Lexington sc
Such a great primer and gives you the brightening you need..in juatvthe right amounts! Can use alone or under your make up...it goes on so smooth and dries evenly! I absolutely love this product!💖
I do but this item again and again
Marie from Syracuse, ny
I use this product daily. With foundation,, BB or tinted moisturiser.
Jen from FL
Left my skin oily.....would not recommend. I love Bare Minerals products but this one was very disappointing.
I would buy this product again.
Ebear from Chicago IL
Use ss a light foundation. Love the feel of my skin when I put it on.
Half of bottle unusable!
lrns from STL
I've been using this for about 4-5 months now and it's always been kind of difficult getting product out of the bottle despite shaking it up to help mix it together. Looked in the bottle yesterday and it's still about half full, just with gunks of product that's unable to get out of the pump! I would reconsider getting this if they change the packaging to a tube, but as it stands that's a ton of wasted product. Otherwise, helped blur imperfections on my face and helped my BareMinerals foundation apply super smooth.
Love this product
BC RN from Enid, OK
Often times I just use this and blush. No foundation needed
Wouldn't be without it
Classy gram from Tulsa
Frequently use it alone without foundation
