            I was not planning on buying this product when I went to ulta and has never even heard about it but I needed a primer and so I took a leap of faith and tried this one. So far so good. It makes my skin look flawless and the lasting power is pretty good.

            Not at all what I expected. Had been using NYX Angel Veil, prior to this, and will definitely go back to it. This is very greasy feeling. Can't tell how much to use. It reminds me of a thinner version of Vaseline. Will not buy again.

              I use everyday. Love the silky smooth feeling I get. Tried the name brand ones and this works better for a fraction of the price. You def can tell difference since I started using this.

                    This product is un-tinted and provides no coverage. It is designed to be used under your foundation to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles. You may prefer Flawless Prime, which features a neutralizing green tint to minimize skin redness and even skin tone:

                    This primer is formulated for all skin types including oily skin. 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:

                    It could be that you are applying too much. Try applying just a pea size amount to the entire face - this should help correct the issue! :-)

                • Q:

                  I am 55 yrs old and have been using Bare Minerals for 3 years now. I need to find a less expensive primer, I was using Bareminerals Prime time foundation primer, but it is costly now with my senior budget. This worked well for me, I have combination skin and redness and no wrinkles yet, oh and I have very very sensitive skin. I tried a new night time moisturizer and my skin broke out terribly to it. My question: what do you suggest for primer and moisturizer too?

                    This product is well-suited for those with sensitive skin. It features a fragrance-free formula and contains soothing green tea extract. If you are seeking a moisturizer to pair with this primer, the Radiant Skin Daily Face Moisturizer is an excellent choice (formulated for all skin types):
