        Comments about BareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer:

        I have recently begun using the primer daily. When I first bought, it worked well and was dispensed from the pump as a gel. Within a couple of days, it began coming out of the pump as a thin oily clear substance. I took it back and exchanged it. I was told I needed to mix it together, but Ulta exchanged it anyway. Thank you, Ulta. The second bottle stayed together and worked beautifully until I finished the bottle. It was definitely over a month or more. Now I have a third bottle and on the second day, it's com8ng out as oil. I did try mixing it up and it seems ok, but I'm not sure I'll buy Bare Minerals Primer again.

                Love this product!! Just make sure if buying the tinted one it's the right color. Bought medium, bottle stated medium but had light primer inside. Still an amazing product for long lasting coverage.

                      Depending on the actual amount used per day (assuming some days it may be more or less than one actual pump), this can last anywhere from 6-12 weeks.
