Now Available! BE Prime Time Brightening Primers + A Giveaway!


(I'm giving these away!)

UPDATE: This contest is now closed and the winner has been notified via email. Check back for a new contest starting soon!

I ordered the Bare Escentuals Prime Time Brightening Primers (Foundation and Eyelid) when they were first available in a kit on the Q. And for a long time, that was one of the only places you could pick it up. But starting in January, both Brightening Primers will be available everywhere. Some locations may even have choices of two Brightening Eye Primers - one in gold and one in pearl! I've only seen the gold, but if you've gotten your hands on the pearl, please tell me all about it!

(Eyelid Primer is on top. The Foundation Primer is on the bottom.)

While I reviewed these when I first tried them back in June, I have grown to dig them even more - especially the eye primer.

(The one I am giving away is slightly smaller.)

The Prime Time Brightening Eyelid Primer can be used by itself for an easy glow that doesn't crease or it can be used underneath shadows to give them a touch more sparkle. It isn't going to totally change the look of your favorite shadows, but it does add a little oomph. Prime Time Brightening Primer for Eyelids comes with vitamins A,C and E and is preservative-, oil- and fragrance-free. This is, hands down, the primer I have been reaching for when I want a golden sheen in my lid primer.

(The top row has no primer. The bottom row has the Brightening Primer.)

I love to use it all over my eye and just add a slightly darker crease color for a really quick look. It adds another dimension to everyday colors and it keeps my oily lids in check all day.

The original Prime Time sets the standard for silicone-based primers and the Prime Time Brightening Foundation Primer is no different. It makes your skin feel as smooth as silk and makeup goes on flawlessly. Since I have dry skin, I luerve how it makes my skin feel perfect; eliminating dry patches on my face (at least eliminating the look of dry patches on my face).

The Brightening version of the primer is very similar in feel to the original primer, but it is slightly more lotion-y and a little less gel-y. It has a very brief dry down time, only a few seconds. With a different texture from the original, it may take you a bit to get used to the feel. I find that it spreads easily and that a little goes a long way.

It also helps absorb extra oil and is infused with Vitamins C and E, like the original primer. It also still feels silky smooth on the skin, just like the original. While it doesn't add a huge amount of sparkle or golden tones to your face, it does brighten your skin slightly.

(Brightening Primer is on top, Original Prime Time is on the bottom. One is with a flash and one is without.)

Both of these primers are hitting shelves everywhere in January. This isn't going to completely change your makeup or make you look like you are nightclub bound. It will add a little boost of radiance to your skin in a very natural way. It might be just the right thing to perk up winter skin!

Wanna try it for yourself? I have a set to give away! Just leave a comment either telling me what lesson you learned this year or a change you are going to make in the new year. I'll pick someone (with the help of Random.org) on January 15th. US only please. Be sure to leave your email or way to contact you in the event you are chosen. The winner will be notified by email and must respond in 48 hours to claim the prize. Want extra entries? Promote the contest on Facebook or Twitter and leave me an extra comment telling me you shared the love. Like GR on Facebook and follow Gouldylox on Google and leave extra, extra comments! Still need more ways to enter? Submit this contest to Stumble Upon or other similar sites!

  1. A change I am going to make in the new year is to spend less money....even though that means less money on BE :(

  2. Well, my change was gonna be limiting my spending on makeup, but I'm kinda doubting that!

  3. Hi! =D This is not so much a lesson but more of a realization: I have way too much makeup and should stop buying it. But I don't think that's going to happen.

    I've also liked your post on facebook.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! My email is x4getmehn0tx@yahoo.com

  4. I've sworn to use up products before purchasing additional items. I chant this while going back to my yoga practice. Far more fulfilling than 'om'

  8. I learned that I definitely need some sort of Rx to keep my skin clear of acne. I stopped using my Rx topical retinoid and my face exploded with inflammatory acne. It will take months to heal the persistent post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. In the new year, I will consistently use my Rx medicines, even after my skin clears.

  10. A positive change I'm making in 2011 is to get more REST! If you're tired all the time even the best makeup and skincare isn't going to be effective. I'm really going to make effort to get at least 7, preferably 8 hrs sleep per night instead of my normal 4 or 5 hours. Thanks for giveaway!

  21. I learned that I really need to decide on a schedule & stick to it - my time management was lacking in 2010. I also learned that I need to exercise to feel better in my own skin.

  28. One thing I need to change this year is to take more time for myself. In taking care of everyone else--animals and people alike, I realize that I have often neglected myself. I think happens to a lot of women. I miss taking the time to really fix myself up each day. I miss make up! I'd like to try more from the BE line.

  29. Just love this new formula, but really love the new packaging for the eye primer!!!

  30. I need to follow my own instincts rather than be influenced by what looks good on others. My change is that I'll go look at things instead of hitting 'buy' online.

  41. I learned last year I should stay out of the college application process my son is working on. I messed up twice and it may have cost him being accepted. Oh dear.
    This year I will NOT help!
