Q & A

Rated 4 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by OK primer in an awful bottle This is my second favourite primer, its a bit too thick and therefore doesn't pump very well in the bottle so when it does decide to come out it goes all over me or the carpet. I don't like the texture, its too silky but the coverage is quite good. 18/07/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Great Base This is a lovely product. It glides on, covers imperfections, leaves a smooth even base tone and includes SPF. Brilliant for when I want a flawless finish with my bare minerals powders. 18/07/2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by worse packaging ever 5 star product in worse designed bottle. too frustrated using it. spurts out all over what you are wearing 2 thirds gets wasted as you cant get it out. why its not in a tube all reviews are the same bm clearly don't bother reading them such a massive shame 08/05/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Brilliant product, not so great packaging! Absolutely love this primer, buy again as soon as I run out, only problem with it is the pump :( Such a shame as it does disperse the ideal amount when it works..will it stop me from buying it though? NO! Marked it down by 1 star simply for the packing otherwise would be 5. 17/04/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth every penny! I work outside and in a very dry, dusty environment so although I have combination skin, I found I was getting dry skin. I hadn't been using a primer during the day but thought this might help and it really did. My skin stopped getting dry and looked so much better too! It does every thing you'd expect a bm primer to do- makes foundation apply and look better, makes sure foundation lasts all day and diminishes the appearance of pores and fine lines. 22/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wowowowow This is soooooo soothing and smoothing on my skin. It adds just that little extra coverage. Its weightless but looks amazing and makes foundation application so much easier. I recommend this to everyone out there 22/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Need this This is my top go to product. Even if I don't have time to put a full face of make up on I know if I put this on my skin looks smoothed out. It's a perfect base for my foundation. Couldn't live without it! 18/02/2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Primer I love this primer, I wear it daily and wouldn't be without it. Perfect under any foundation. However, I agree with other comments about the pump which lets the product down. I have learnt to unscrew the lid and use the stick as an applicator however this can sometimes be messy and is not really ideal! 17/02/2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by fantastic primer works a treat this is a great product that covers evenly and acts as a light foundation. this feels like a second skin i have tried many primers and it is nice to finally find a product that does not irritate my skin 17/02/2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by I like it! I tried this product, as I wanted to stop wearing foundation everyday and use something lighter on my skin. This product lasts so long! It gives a very nice coverage however, it can feel a little greasy on the skin. This would be amazing for someone with dry skin, but for us combo/oily skin sisters...I would perhaps suggest using the oil-control primer bare minerals have underneath this product. 16/02/2016

I find that this gives a light to medium coverage on me, but it can be built up to give a fuller coverage.

I use fairly medium too! And I think the best shade match in this primer is 'Fair' (a bM person in store colour matched me). I hope you like it - I absolutely love it!

Answer: 
I have the same t-zone issue and have been wearing the matte foundation for a while now, which I love and it certainly helped, but wasn't perfect. I started using the BB primer underneath it a week or so ago and so far I'm loving it! It's hydrating, so it helps the dry bits of my combination skin, but not oily as long as you use the right amount (about half a pump), and honestly it's helped a lot. The coverage it provides is what you'd expect from a BB creamtypething, just enough to feel comfortable by itself if you're having a good day. Also, I've noticed a reduction in oil on my face as the day goes on, and of course it makes sure that foundation etc. stays on perfectly!
Hope this has helped!

Hello,
I live in the states but my friend wants to get me a present from the uk so that's why I am on the uk website. I am a shade Bare Shell 02 in the Bareskin Brightening Serum Foundation and I am planning on tanning a bit in the summer but I heard since primers and BB creams are so sheer that they somehow change to match your color a bit.

What shade should I get?? Light??

Answer: 
Our Primers are quite good at lasting as long as your Foundation, but it's very dependant on your skin-type. Regarding the SPF, again this is all down to your skin-type so no 2 people will have the same length of protection from their SPF. We would always recommend using additional protection.
If you are able to pop into your local bareMinerals counter, you could try the new Primer on and see how long it lasts for you before purchasing.
Hope this helps.

Answer: 
I have a similar skin tone to yourself by the sounds of things. I was looking at this today and was advised the light primer. BB creams naturally darken with your skin anyway, and you can always darken your skin with a bronzer or the warmth anyway if the shade is not to your liking for some months.
Hope this helps. I'll be buying one of these on payday!

Answer: 
We would recommend using the Medium shade in our new Primer. You may find this is too light for you when you tan in the summer months, but keep an eye out as we will be launching more shades later on in the year.
