Review: bareVitamins Prime Time Eyelid Primer

I'm now starting to review things i've been using before they hit pan. As i'm always so occupied in reviewing new stuffs i received.

This is my 1st time reviewing eyelid primer, i bought this from Jamilla's blog sale last year. The reason why i bought this as its Fuz HG eyelid primer, and i definitely have to give it a try! She is still raving about this eyelid primer in her recent video and categorized it under her necessities.

info extracted from Sephora:
Retail Price: USD16.00
You can get it here: bareVitamins Prime Time Eyelid Primer

What it is:
A silky eyelid primer.

What it does:
Designed especially for use with bareMinerals, Prime Time Eyelid Primer is an oil-free, fragrance-free way to maximize the color and extend the wear of your favorite bareMinerals Eyeshadows, Glimmers, and Glimpses. The gentle formula goes on sheer and lightweight yet provides heavy-duty staying power for the most vibrant and lasting color. Perfect for those days when you need all-day, all-night wear. The sheer, neutral tint doesn't interfere with your favorite colors, while the bareMinerals-infused, smoothing base keeps excess oil from affecting wear.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
With the convenient applicator, apply just a touch under your favorite bareMinerals eye color. Prime Time Eyelid Primer is allergy-tested by dermatologists.

instructions clearly printed on the packaging

its a mousse like primer

After blending, it leave a silky finish which is able to grip on the eyeshadow you applied on.

My Review:
I had been using it for the past few months, its exactly as how Sephora describe no wonder its Fuz Fav... The formula does its job in keeping my eye makeup in place throughout the day. The texture of this primer is like mousse concealer but much moist and with silky finishes. I don't have very oily lids only moderate i think and this works for me thus far. Its lightweight, maybe thats the reason why it does not crease. The packaging makes its close to winner, as its sooo portable, hygiene and safe for travel (as it will not leak at all). This would be one of my eyelid primer choice if i were to do re-purchase on.

But since i'm so hooked on cosmetics, i would try out other brands too, next on my list is Kat Von D!!

Are you using eyelid primer? which works or don't for you??


  1. Thanks for the review! I like the packaging, very convenient! I've only tried ELF's mineral eye primer and I had a sample of UDPP. The ELF primer is pretty good for only $3 and does increase the color and staying powder. Everybody raves about UDPP but I think the packaging is so poor! It does work really well but sometimes I feel like it works almost TOO well, makes blending kinda hard sometimes >_<

  2. this is my favorite primer too:) great review!

  3. Great review! I'm using UDPP sample, and I think it's pretty great :)

  4. thank you for this review! very adequate :)

  5. I'm using Loreal decrease... i think it works pretty well too :)

  6. Currently using ELF Mineral Primer... Does the job well but I would definitely love to try UDPP one day (maybe when they decide to open up a store in Aus lol) after hearing all the raves about it.

  7. Yayy!! I'm so glad you love it too~ <3

  8. Hi Karen!

    Sorry about the long absence from commenting, looking forward to catching up on all your awesome posts. :) Great review. The packaging is really nice for this primer and it's awesome that it actually works!! I have oily lids so I have a hard time with primers, thanks for the heads up.

    Love your new blog layout, very cool!

  9. Great review! I cant imagine doing makeup without a primer anymore :)

  10. great review! i like the fact that it doesnt contain any parabens

  11. i definitely need to try this after i'm done w/ my tfsi! it's both you and may's fav :)

  12. Ahhh, I want to try this but I'm so doubtful it'll work for me. I already have to layer UDPP with a MAC Paintpot to get 9 hours of crease free wear... I have such oily lids. ;_;


thank u so much for ur sweet comments!
