Prime Time Oil Control Foundation Primer


Monique M.

Im a little on the fence about this product. I suffer from very oily skin. I decided to try this primer since i loove BE products already. Now, I say im on the fence because I did notice my foundation stayed on a little longer, but now theres a problem. It rolls. I can touch my face and m,y foundation will roll off.

I read a review and someone stated that theres did the same. and the solution was to make sure its dry. Well I waited about 5 mins before i applied my foundation , and it still did the sam thing.

also , I noticed when its not rubbed in completely, it dried on my chin, and i had to literally peel it off..

is this happening to any one else?

This left my skin feeling tight and drawn, which I thought it meant it was working. Not so much, unfortunately. After an hour or so, my skin was as slick as if I weren't wearing any primer at all. It might work for some, but for me, I'll stick to another primer.

Didn't work for me

Nope, I felt like my Matte was going to run off my face. I use NARS primer instead. That's the best!

This product is easy to use. It is in a plastic pump vessel, one pump is enough to cover your entire face. It feels like a thin silicone. It is colourless and odorless. I just didn't like the result.

Prevent Oil and Reduces the appearance of pores!

I tried this product and I really like it. It controls the oil and reduces the appearance of pores. My foundation application (Revlon ColorStay) was smooth, not cakey. My pores..omg- disappeared and I didn't break out after using it. I really like this product. I would suggest trying it out.
