|bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralising Foundation Primer* - £17|
I hope you're all having a good start to the week and not suffering too much from the Monday Morning Blues. I'm going to London with my school on Thursday and I'm quite excited (mainly for the coach journey though - I'm not so excited for the filling in of various worksheets, when I could be visiting Victoria's Secret!) but today has gone so painfully slow! Today I have a review on the bareMinerals Prime Time Neutralising Foundation Primer.What do bareMinerals say about this primer?
"Create a silky, smooth canvas for a flawless foundation application with Prime TimeTM Neutralizing Foundation Primer. With its color-correcting yellow base and light-reflective pigments, this innovative foundation primer immediately neutralizes the appearance of discoloration, uneven skin tone and redness for brighter, younger-looking skin. Our mineral-infused formula glides on seamlessly, combatting flaky dryness, rough patches and uneven skin texture.”
I totally agree. This primer is supposed to neutralise skin tones with its yellow colour correcting base, which looks quite scary when you first see it, but when it is massaged into the skin it looks just like your skin - but better. Although the swatch of it blended in on my hand is the best example, it definitely gets rid of my redness and discolouration which I don't have too much of and I only wish that I had this product when I had eczema on my face! It completely smooths out my skin ready for foundation, and actually does completely glide over all of my dry patches! It also doesn't break me out which is good! You really don't need much of it either, the amount I have on my hand in the picture above is more than enough to cover my whole face, so you really get what you pay for!
It also makes my foundation last a good while, longer than without a primer! It has come in especially helpful with the weather warming up, it stops my make up from melting off my face, and I rarely need to touch up throughout the day! On no makeup makeup days I have been using this on it's own with concealer just to even out my skin tone and it gives a really nice, natural finish, perfect for summer!
Although it's not a problem for me, the downside that people could find with the Prime Time Foundation Primer is the smell. It's similar to the MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation smell, although the Prime Time Primer isn't as strong and it's more pleasant, but I know some people aren't fond of that smell, or fragranced products in general, but it doesn't bother me at all and I actually quite like it because once you put it on it's not detectable on the skin at all!
Overall, I love this primer and although I have only tried one other (Gosh Velvet Touch Primer) the Prime Time Primer is pretty much holy grail!
Have you tried this primer? What are your thoughts?
Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed!
