Bare Minerals: Prime Time Primer Shadow

Sunday, 2 March 2014

"Prime Time"! Get it? Yes? Yes. Haha, don't kill me, I just had to!

Officially my first purchase from Sephora - and it won't be the last! I wish I had heeded my friend's advice and gotten gunmetal too. Actually, I'm desiring the entire range now. This has effectively converted me to the eye primer craze!

The tube is tiny at 3ml/ 0.1 fl.oz., but a little 1-2mm dot goes a long, long way!

 Great ways to wear it? Bare Minerals Prime Time in Sundance is a beautiful, rich shimmering tangerine shade. Absolutely gorgeous on warmer skintones! The tangerine brightens up the complexion, doesn't look overdone and is perfect for a daytime look. You can layer darker shadows on top to transit to night time as well.

 I love wearing this under my KATE Real Create Eyes in BR-2 (as above). The result is a beautiful, dimensional look that almost looks mildly duochrome - peach/gold, anyone? Unfortunately the camera doesn't capture the intense tangerine and the beautiful shift in colour. But we can picture it mentally, right?

Doesn't it make you want to sun-dance?  

Okay I'll stop, I can feel you cringing behind the screen.

Here, you can see it offers a solid base for your shadows. However, it doesn't really enhance their vibrancy unless the shadow is similar to the primer (e.g. Peachy/pink shadows).

  • Lasts all day - no kidding!
  • Doesn't irritate my eyes at all. Perfect
  • Highly pigmented, gorgeous colour
  • Non-sticky
Mine was a little on the dry side when I opened it (brand new). May I suggest a seal to prevent that?
Otherwise, can't think of any other cons! (Well, maybe the price to quantity ratio for heavy users)

Trust me when I say you'll love it! 

Now I'm really interested in Bare Minerals. It just might be the perfect fit for my sensitive skin/eyes/everything!
