    Not that silky

    I had gotten a trial size of the prime time original foundation primer. I bought the one that says original poor minimizer.

    And this one is not silky to touch as like the other one.

    I couldnt find this one below in the pic on the order page.

    Very dissatisfied and disappointed

    I’ve been using Bare Minerals since 2009. I will forever love bare minerals. It’s helped me feel more confident in my skin. It’s helped with my rosacea in highschool, college, adulthood, and now motherhood. The old original prime time was soft and buttery. The makeup stayed on my skin all day long. The new formula is sticky and absorbs way too fast! It’s nothing like the old. Now my makeup does not last all day long like it use to. I’m very dissatisfied and disappointed. I REALLY hope you bring back the old formula.

    True original prime time primer

    I am not happy. Discontinuing the original formula was the worst mistake bare minerals ever made! I’ve read the comments too so I’m not alone. I’ve tried your new ones the suck it’s not buttery smooth like the original. So I’m hoping your higher ups can see making room for new formulas by discontinuing a customer favorite is dumb and bring it back. I guess Estée Lauder will get my money for primer now when my last bottle of the “original” original gets empty. Highly disappointed

    Love This Primer !

    I have large pores on my nose and cheeks. When I use this Primer, my skin looks smoother. I use this product every day my Bare Minerals Original Loose Powder Foundation , Loose Powder Blush and Mineral Veil

    Hate the new formula!

    I hate the new formula. The old formula was smooth and buttery feely that helped apply my cream makeup smoothly. The new formula absorbs too quickly and when I apply my cream foundation it goes on terrible and isn’t even.. on the search for a new primer.
