        Best Uses

          Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Mattifying Primer, 1 ea:

          I apply this after washing my face in the morning. My first word of warning is that if you use to much when you apply, it'll leave little white streaks on your face. Yes they can be wiped off but I have to be very conscious to use just the write amount of this stuff.

          My face is fairly oil and I live in the southeast (high humidity). I take a prescriptive dermatologist prescribed med which controls most of my oil and breakouts but still like primer for setting my foundation and helping it stay on throughout the day. This stuff does an ok job for me. I'd say it does well at keeping my shine away but wish it did more to help me set my foundation. I'll continue my search to find something that controls oil and helps set foundation better.

              Went on smooth and left a nice texture, but it didn't slow down the oiliness of my skin at all, and my face was all shiny in no time at all. I was hoping this product would be the perfect pair for the Bare Minerals powder that I use and like, because my only complaint with the powder is it doesn't do much to prevent shine, but I was disappointed.

                I put this on after moisturizing and before powder makeup. It really does work to make my pores smaller. Wish it kept the shine off my oily skin a bit better, but I do like the way my skin looks!

                      Comments about bareMinerals Prime Time Oil Control Mattifying Primer, 1 ea:

                      Overall, I am very happy with this product! I do find it works the best with bare minerals makeup, but it is just fine with any other foundations I use. It is a little pricey for the size, BUT it lasts a lot longer than you would expect. A little bit goes a long way.....and when I say a little bit, I mean it. You'd be surprised how long you can get it to last if you don't over-use it.

                      It obviously won't keep you matte all day, but it does a pretty good job! It definitely minimizes the shine....even long into the day.

                      Definitely worth giving it a try! There are other primers out there that are made to reduce shine/oil and I've found they can be very drying - this one doesn't do that.
