    Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

    I tried this primer for the first time and I was looking for something to help my foundation stay on longer. I have very oily skin around my t-zone and my nose so picking the best primer is paramount in delaying mid-day oil secretion from my skin. I also have larger pores around my eyebrows and on my nose so a good filler primer is always on radar. However, this primer is a bit to greasy and does not hold all day for oily skin. The Elf mineral infused primer may actually be a step above in this category of 'slick' feeling primers. Some of the cheaper products actually give better results. If you go for this one you may have to do two applications to make sure it works for you. On another note I will review Benefit's Porefessional Primer, which is amazing!

                I loved this primer! Was debating buying a well known pricier brand but I've had such great luck with ULTA products that I gave this one a try and don't regret it. Noticed my makeup lasted much longer than usual and my face hasn't broken out.

                Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

                Honestly, in comparison to the smashbox primer, i would have to say they are equal! I don't believe in buying cheap makeup, but this worked as well! I am very happy with this, and I don't think i will buy the SmashBox one again. I have super dry skin due to my topicals that are prescribed by my dermatologist, so this works pretty well with it. Depending on the moisturizer i use, it can be flaky, but not bad at all!

                    • Q:

                      Would this be safe for under the eyes? My under eye concealer is actually a foundation (can't find anything else that works), so I figured a foundation primer might be better than an eye primer one, since they are commonly used for eyeshadow.

                        A:

                        Yes, you can apply this to the under eye area, just be careful to avoid the eyelid as well as direct contact with the eye. This product hasn't been tested for use on the eyelid, so we wouldn't suggest using it in place of an eye primer for eyeshadow, but it absolutely works to help prevent creasing of your under eye concealer as well as to help prolong its wear. Enjoy!

                      I love Ulta products and I have found their face primers and setting spraying is just as good if not better than the more, well off the charts expensive make-up. Which of the primers, Ulta brand, are not silica based. It rolls on my skin then balls up my make up and I look like a molting snake. So please direct me to the correct primer.
