    Don't put make up on without it!

    I have used smash box and this one is just as good and costs $15 less. Purchased some for a friends birthday ..she loves it too!

    I was really disappointed with this one. I love all things mineral and love primers too (primordial cell defense and primer--discontinued by Lancome--has been my all time favorite), but this just feels like mineral oil with some powder in it. Waste of money.

      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer, Original, 1 ea:

      I tried everything with this product. With liquid foundation and without. With cream foundation and without. With powder and without. With beauty balm and without. I could not see any difference when I used bareMinerals primer. Since I paid for it and it wasn't cheap I started using it on just one side of my face and never once did I see any difference between the left side of my face and the right side.

      This made no difference at all in how my makeup looked or held up.

              Overall, this is a good primer. The only problem I always seem to have is the pump always breaks. I just unscrew the cap and put it on that way. I switch with another primer every couple of days.

                  I like this primer because it's safe to use, it goes on easily and smoothly and makes the rest of my make-up look great. I don't even feel it!

                          This is great under lightweight foundation. It helps cover inconsistent skin color and fills in the "laugh lines", skin-smoothing. I love it.
