Most Helpful Positive Review Brings Your Eyes and Eye Colors to Life
You only need a VERY small amount of this primer. Not even a pea sized amount. Just a tiny amount. It spreads easily, goes on smooth and lasts all day. I took a flight at 5:30am and it's 10:43pm now and it has held up all day long. It's my first time trying eyelid primer EVER and I'm really impressed. It's good for making your eye colors come out and show up better on your eyes. I highly recommend this product. There are other eyelid primers, but I haven't had the experience with them so I tried the original just to try it out. It's great and it doesn't crease or clump up. Try it! It's a small bottle when you get it, but it will last a long time if you use it sparingly as it should be used. I added a photo for you all to see the size and also took the cap off in a second photo so you can see what it looks like on the inside as well.
Most Helpful Critical Review eyelid primer
I love Bare Escentuals products! I have loved the eyelid primer for several years but I do not think the new eyelid primer in the tube as opposed to the stick that you wind up is as good. I bought it in the tube and it doesn't dry to the matte finish that stays all day. My oily eyelids seem to come through this new stuff by the end of the day. I have been buying the old eyelid primer wherever I can find it.

Deb from Georgia
I could never wear eyeshadow because it did not stay on and would end up as a crease on my eyelids. This product eliminates that. I still don't have occasion to wear much shadow but this is great for eyeliner too.
Bellajmarie from Michigan
I'm always on the search for "wow factors" when purchasing cosmetics. Unfortunately, Prime Time eyelid primer isn't it. There are other brands that perform as well as BM primer....for less cost. I can't be angry about size of tube, I (we) are fully aware that the tube contains 3ml of product. Reading details are important. However, good reviews here and elsewhere prompted me to purchase a lid primer with "wow factor" according to reviews, ...willing to spend more for such a tiny amount. Disappointed.
However, I still LOVE AND ADORE loose mineral eye color in shade Nude Beach!! The glitter is pulverized and not chunky, perfect for my mature eyes! Still waiting on perfect lid primer!
Monica from Fayetteville, AR
I really like Bare Minerals.
Donya from Silver spring
When I use this eye primer I know my eye shadow will not crease. A little bit goes a long way. Used other primers and always came back to it.
But the new packaging is cheap. This is the second time bought it and a slit opens up by where you twist the cap on. So when you squeeze, the primer comes out the hole it's supposed to and the slit.
Not recommended for dry or sensitive skin
Laura from WA
The product functions well as a primer and may work well for people with oily lids, but I would not recommend for dry skin. I have dry lids and the primer caused skin flaking which is not something that any other primer I've tried has caused. The primer additionally emphasized the texture of the flaking. The tube also feels like a sample size, which isn't a problem for me because it takes me over a year to get through a tube of eye primer but it just isn't worth the price tag.
Favorite eyelid primer
Ghickscars from Tuscola, Michigan
I love this stuff! I've tried other brands but I always end up back with this. When I wear this my eyeshadow does not crease. You don't need a ton but don't skimp on it either.
I would try something else next time
Kat from Seattle
I bought this because of the good ingredients, and coming from a brand I trust. This is the first eye primer I've bought, so I don't have much to compare it to.
That being said, it felt super rich applying it on, and the shadow stuck fast! This made my eyelids look and feel dry, and made the skin look older. Might just be a primer thing, so I'll give a different one a go next time.
Used to love, now it irritates eyes
Marissam from Wisconsin
I used this for years and then took a break and used the urban decay eye primer. Recently I bought this again and now it majorly irritates my eyes. I thought it was other products at first bc why would my old favorite be the problem but through trial and error it was definitely this. Bummed bc I really did like it and it made my eyeshadow last but obviously can't use anymore. Wish products would stay the same.
I will be buying this again!
Kaleigh from Grand Rapids, mi
I recently purchased this primer and I'm blown away... I've been getting creases in my eye makeup and this product takes care of that. I use it in the morning and it lasts all day... and night apparently.. I fell asleep with my makeup on (bad I know) and it still looked good in the morning !! Buy this !
Love this! But super small
Jess from Indiana
I didn't realize the size of the tube!! But this works perfectly!! Love it! 9 hour day with eyeshadow and NO CREASES!
Love this product!
Nonnee4 from Fresno, CA
I'm on tube #25 of this product. I used to get shadow creases on my eyelids, but no more. My eye makeup looks the same at night as it did when I first applied it in the morning. This is the BEST primer ever and I've tried several.
A great primer, took a star off for skimpy product size
Dingus from WA
Give product a minute to dry down, gets a bit tackier as it dries out. The product is deceptively thin and smooth but holds on to eye shadow very well. Because it's not very pigmented, this product is best used for a natural blended look or with heavily pigmented shadows and concealer on top if you are going for something more vivid.
Best Product to Keep mascara on your lashes and makeup on yo
Frances from Pomona, CA
I use on eyelids and lashes before applying eye makeup. Product is the best! Keeps eye shadow and mascara on your eyes all day and night, even if you take a nap during the day
To much money for not enough of a mediocre product
Level from Annapolis, MD
I was blown. Ay when the box arrive and there was a tiny tube inside. (I'll attach a photo, I put my mechanical pencil next to it for proportion). I tried it a few days and it was ineffective, not only could I not see a difference but by the next time I checked the mirror about 6 hours later, it had sort of crackled on my lids. I know my skin is dry so I tried more moisture the next time and that didn't work any better. Let's see if you post this review. I won't be a repeat customer.

I have problems with sparkly eyeshadow. It helps with eyeshadow fallout.
murry144 from Iowa
I bought the Prime Time Eyeshadow Primer and really like how my Bare Minerals eyeshadow stays on with the primer. Will definitely buy again.
Best eye primer ever!
Dee Kay from Chicago
Eye shadow stays put and doesn't crease! Cannot be without it! Highly recommend!
Used this product for years. Works perfectly.
Lisa T from Stafford Township, NJ
For years I tried to find a product that would help my eyeshade not crease. THIS IS IT!!!
Rose M from Baltimore Md.
I have been using this for about a month. I really like it. My eye shadow stays on all day and stays in pleace without smearing.
Love this product
Lstar from Florida
Best primer ever!
Meg from Colorado
I've been on the hunt for a good primer — Too Faced, MAC, NYX, Smashbox, etc. — and I thought I'd try this one because the reviews were so positive. I tested it on a wedding just to see how long it would last. It lasted maybe three hours before it creased and disappeared. Terrible. Don't even consider buying it. Try something else.
Best eyelid primer on the market!
Julie from San Antonio
This product is amazing just a little bit on your eyelid and your eyeshadow will not clump.
Virginia from Houma LA
this is a great product it keeps my eye makeup on until I remove it there is so smearing or fading I have sensitive skin and this is the only eye lid primer I can use without causing irritation to my eyes. wish you could keep it in stock at the store location.
I have been using this for years and nothing is better
Busy working Mom from Snydertown, PA
I received this as a sample many years ago now, and have been using it ever since. It makes even cheap eyeshadow last all day. The tube is well worth the cost, as you only need a little bit.
chiqui from Altamonte Springs
This primer helps the eyeshadow stay all day without creasing. It also enhances the colors! Very good product.
