Review: Bare Escentuals Prime Time

I recently was looking at and came across a review for BE's new primer Prime Time. Every review I read for the product raved about how great it was. Lately I feel that my Bare Minerals foundation looks oily and shiny by the end of the day. Prime Time was created to combat this look. So I caved and bought it this weekend

The bottle only contains 1 ounce of primer :jawdrop: This is a shock specially when you see the $21 price tag. HOWEVER a little goes a loooooonnnnnnggggggg way. Literally one pump or even a little less than that will cover your entire face.


The primer dries super fast and leaves my skin feeling satiny smooth. It creates the perfect canvas for Bare Minerals. The pores on my nose :oops: at times looked BIGGER thanks to BE but the primer definitely stops that from happening. I also was able to go ALL DAY with out any gross oil slick or touch up of powder :woohoo: This is definitely a new favorite in my beauty routine

BB- I put my moisturizer on BEFORE the primer So I just had my second full day with the primer and my makeup looks just as fresh as when I put it on. No need for powder at all

What really sucks about this is that I know I'm gonna get on Sephora and NOT stop with just the primer...

I know I'm sold!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been looking for something for my oily skin and these dang oil blotters don't cut it~ well they do but it's so annoying having to blot all the time. I feel like an idiot, I had no idea that this is what BE primer was for!!! That little packet came with my starter kit and I was like huh? primer? :rotfl: Thanks for this review!!!!!! and you have awesome eyes girl!!!!

:rotfl: RCL I have posted pics before! la_c: it does not have SPF but I figure it doesnt matter since the foundation itself has SPF. Oh I went on a hike that lasted for over four hours and I wore my BE and my face did not burn once :woohoo:

JESSNESS! (I wish there were some way you could hear me saying that b/c it's very "MO-OOM! sounding!) You are gorgeous, girl! Your skin is like porcelain and your eyes are beautiful!!!!!!!!!! I'm so happy to finally be able to put a face with the name!
