Not no way, Not no how...will I ever live without this magical stuff again, that is! It does take a bit of practice to learn how to use it but once you do you will be telling all your girlfriends about it! Apply two clicks with the tip of your pinky finger and blend until clear over your eyelid, let dry and apply your shadow. Presto! Perfect eye makeup all day and all night for that matter. Your shadow and liner will not budge or crease, even in the rain! Can't say enough good things about it!

This primer goes on silky smooth and blends in great. Works great w/BE shadows but not so well with solid shadows. BUT it contains Bismuth Oxychloride, a heavy metal, which is a known skin irritant. After applying this primer my eyes began to burn about an hour later. It took me a while to figure out it was this primer- I used an eyeshadow w/o bismuth oxy directly onto my lids and was able to sleep all night w/o any irritation. Next day I wore only this primer and had to wash it off after @4hrs and it left my eyelids pink and puffy :-(
Also the applicator is useless- it clogs up and after having to wipe away a glob of dried up primer, you still need to use your fingertips to apply it evenly enough. In order to use what little is inside the applicator you need to break off the tip and use a thin concealer brush to use the rest of the product (which is approx 1/4 left) and then replace the tip and keep it sealed tight so it won't dry up. They repacked it into tubes which solves the packaging but there's still bismuth oxy in it along with many of their eyeshadows, foundations, etc :-(

      The first one I received was defective, so asked for replacement. The replacement also does not work. Both (cylinders that must be turned to push product into applicator tip) will not dispense product at all. Store sells different type of dispenser (tube) for same product and that seems to work.

            Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Eyelid Primer, .05 oz:

            I bought this mostly because my skin tone is a medium brown color and because of this I have trouble getting some colors to show on my skin. There wasn't anything about this product that I liked. First off it took forever to get the product to come out of the tip. Once it did it was very dry and impossible to spread with the applicator. I had to use my finger to spread it evenly across my eyelid. I picked up a cheaper product locally that works much better and is easy to spread. Don't waste your money on this one.

            This is the best lid primer I have ever used. It keeps my eyeshadow in place all day.The only negative I have is that once applied,it is hard to blend or remove. This feature is probably what makes it last all day.I use this everyday with eyeshadow other than Bare Minerals brand and it works great.

              This is by far the best eye shadow primer i have ever used. I like the packaging...easier to use the most. I had applied my makeup...gone out for the day, and night...slept in my makeup, and the next morning...it looked like i had just applied my eyeshadow ... definitely will continue to use this... Makes the eye color pop!

                  Just trying to apply it is difficult and stretches the delicate eyelid skin into wrinkles. Not for use for women over a certain age. Maybe good if you are young and have nice tight firm eyelids.

                  I have used this applicator in the past, and was glad to see it available again. But, this time around the product was dried out and difficult to apply. I will go back to the tube next time, although I think it is a little wasteful; you only need a small amount of product to do the job, and the tube usually dispenses more than you need, which is then wiped off and thrown away.

                    I have tried everything to prevent my eyeshadow from creasing and smearing with my very oily skin. This is the ONLY product I have found that actually does work! My makeup stays all day long, I even put it under my eyes to keep my eyeliner from running down my face, even the waterproof eyeliner smears on me. A must try for people with oily skin!!!

                    Surprisingly, this primer works well cosidering the applicator its in was defective when I received it (does not look like photo, tip was jammed inside). I am still able to twist the primer itself out and use my finger to apply it, so I've used it. I was surprised to see no creases or oily look on eyelids after 8hrs. Eyeshadow wasn't even faded. I like Bare Minerals make-up and never tried this before. I'm sure it works much better if applicator is in proper condition as far as applying w/o finger (I beleive I saw this available without this portable stick case. Drugstore.com gave me a store credit due to the defective applicator - so I'll buy this again in another form if available, or try this stick once more to see if it's easier to apply with a sponge tip that comes out of tube.

                      I did not have any irritation with this product, however, I did have issues as another reviewer with the packaging. I'm in rush in the morning and found that I have to leave the cap very loose or I can't pull it off. Very frustrating. Another note, is that I have never used any cosmetic item in two weeks, but that's all it lasted me! I would have thought I purchased a sample and not the full size product. Does not apply smooothly leaving a streaky texture. Terrible. Will not repurchase.
