      I usually purchase the smashbox or tarte primers but got tired of spending so much money on primer. I decided to try this brand, i figured it wouldn't be so bad. I was SOOOOO impressed with the quality of this primer. I will be buying this again for sure, and I spend so much less on a great product!

        I purchased this hoping I could find a product that worked as well as my primed and pore-less by too face but at a cheaper price point. I wish I'd saved my cash and just shelled out for the too faced brand. This leaves my skin oily and doesn't leave my face feeling smooth or covered.

                  A:

                  You can certainly use this, as it is formulated for all skin types. However, you may be interested in the Flawless Prime (Item #: 2220412), which features a hint of neutralizing green tint to cancel out skin redness:

                  However, if you are seeking an oil-free formula, you may prefer ULTA Matte Prime (Item #: 2220410), which features an oil-free formula with salicylic acid and mattifying powders to combat excess oil and blemishes and to control shine:

                  A:

                  Though both are formulated for all skin types and help create a flawless canvas for makeup application, the most notable difference between the two is that Flawless Primer (Item #: 2220412) features a neutralizing green tint that helps to diminish the appearance of skin redness. We hope this helps!
