Wow! I spent a long time in Sephora trying primers and then applying my Dior Purelight foundation on top. I tried Smashbox first since it's supposedly "the standard." Honestly I didn't notice any difference in how my foundation looked, it felt a little softer, that's all. Then I tried the BE and Wow! My big ol' nose pores turned into little ol' nose pores. I tried on a couple more after that just to have something to compare it to. NARS was pretty good too, but I don't think I liked it quite as well, and it cost more (although I think it was a bigger tube.) But anyway, Prime Time is a great product. My face looks airbrushed, my undereye circles are nearly invisible even though I put LESS concealer on after the primer than I normally would. I didn't keep my T-zone as dry as I would've liked, but it definately helped. I'm not too oily anyway, my main concern was by big pores, and it scored big on that count! Another great thing is that once you let it dry it stays put, I can put a liquid foundation over it with no problems whatsoever. I would've given it 5 lippies, but I took one away on account of it not holding back oilies very well.
I bought this mascara because I have very thin, short eyelashes and I was looking for something to make them look thicker and dramatic. It makes my lashes look thicker after about 3 coats, but they also look very dry and unnatural. It's not too bad about clumping, but after you use it just a few times it has lots of tiny little clumps that stick to your lashes. Not very good about seperating either, the bristles on the brush are too far apart. I prefer even Maybelline Full n' Soft to this product. I might also add that it's 1/3 the price. Overall not a completely terrible mascara, you just don't get what you deserve for the money.
