Bare Minerals Illuminating Primer

Now, I have been a huge fan and a consistent wearer of the bare minerals foundation for a long time, it must be coming up for nearly 3 years now, a long the way I have tried the different primers that go hand in hand with this foundation...

The illuminating one is the most recent purchase of mine and I must say I am very impressed so far. Unlike the other primers I have tried in the past including the neutralizing and the original one, this one leaves my skin looking very dewy and it certainly does what it says on the packet - it brightens your face up - something that I have needed lately due to the dullness of my skin.

I definitely notice whenever I change over any products that I use on my face, my skin slightly breaks out, I did have the same scenario with this one but it died down after a couple of days.

I know most people have this dilemma when switching products and everyone reacts completely different to certain products but realistically when using mineral make up - the breakouts should be minimal and it definitely was minimal.

The reason why the bare minerals primers sell so well is because you pretty much have to use some sort of primer on your face for the foundation to go on nicely and stay on all day. - this does the trick completely, it gives the foundation immense sustaining power and makes the foundation last all day, I have even come back after a night out with my make-up being on for 12+ hours and it has been still pretty much in tact.

This is my favourite primer I have used from the bare minerals collection, it's orangey, sparkly colour and creamy consistency glides on the face to leave your skin looking brighter and fresher than ever - you can see from the picture below where I have rubbed it in on my hand that it leaves a lovely summery glow.

  1. I've always wanted to try Bare Minerals. I was surprised at how well the orange tone blended in, it looks so glowy! I've just ran out of primer and this sounds perfect!

  3. A 'lovely summery glow' sounds ideal! I'm still entirely inexperienced when it comes to primers, but if I ever choose to try one, I'll be sure to give this one a go!

  7. I have the normal primer and have been thinking of getting one of their tinted ones instead. I'm glad you love it!

  8. Sounds like a great primer. I'm going to France soon so I'll definitely pop by Sephora to check out some Bare Minerals products :)
