    Too thick

    I bought this to replace a different Bare Minerals primer that appears to be discontinued. Bummer. I’m not crazy about this. It too thick and I don’t think it preps my skin well. I posted a pick of what I really wanted.

    Spackle Primer!

    This primer is WAY TOO thick and does not apply smoothly!!! And to actually get the product out of the container is worse than squeezing any type of glue out of a container. I tried to soften it with super hot water and it didn’t even affect it at all. See photo! It’s definitely going back!!!

    Primer

    I was expecting this to be more thin. It’s very thick when putting on. Just don’t like the feel of the heavy ness. I was hoping it was more like the other primer I bought couple years ago. I can’t find this, so I thought I’d try the tub one. Unfortunately I will not buy it again.

    Worst primer ever

    This is a poor replacement for the Prime Time BB cream. This stuff is like paste. The color doesn't fade to clear as it dries, either. It crumbles into pinky beige flakes on my face. It makes the Original Foundation cakey and my foundation doesn't last half as long as it does without this "primer". It accentuated my pores instead of smoothing them. It makes my skin look worse than before I applied it. Total waste of money.

    Not good

    Please bring back the original Prime Time BB cream! It was the best SPF make up extender ever. This new line is not like it at all. It is not easy to apply to my face. It doesn't smooth out facial blotches and extend make up the same way the old one did. I will be looking for other brands.

    Hello Sarah,

    Thank you for sharing your honest feedback about our Prime Time BB Cream. We understand your disappointment with the new formulation and how it differs from the previous version you loved.

    We apologize that the current product replacement has not met your expectations in terms of application, coverage, and its ability to extend the wear of your makeup. We recognize the frustration when a beloved product is reformulated, and the changes do not align with your preferences.

    Your feedback regarding the performance of the Original Prime Time BB Cream and the areas where the new formulation falls short has been carefully noted and shared with our product development team.

    At bareMinerals, we are committed to creating high-quality products that not only meet but exceed our customers' expectations. It is clear that the new Prime Time BB Cream formulation has missed the mark for many of our loyal customers, and we take this feedback seriously. Rest assured, we are actively exploring potential adjustments or alternatives that better align with your preferences and our brand's standards.
