    I really love this primer. I needed a new one and didn't want to spend $30 on a bottle so I came across this Ulta brand and I have to say Im glad I did. Long lasting, fresh, and light. Highly recommend this primer.

        Comments about ULTA Fabulous Face Foundation Primer:

        This applied nicely and felt smooth. It seemed like my foundation went on nicely on top, but the biggest problem is that my make up did not last as long as it normally does when I try other primers. Not a bad performance for the price, but personally I would spend an extra few dollars for something better.

        I have very fair skin cool skin, and this BB cream is pretty thick (almost like a light foundation) and turned me an unnatural shade of orange. If you are fair skinned, stay away.

            This is the first time I have tried a foundation primer. I was looking for something that would help make my makeup last longer, look less "caked on", and wouldn't break the bank. So far, I am very pleased with this primer. I have noticed my makeup has stayed on much longer than without it. When you initially apply it, it does feel a little greasy, however, once it dries the greasy feeling goes away and I don't even notice it on my face. I don't tend to have problems with acne or having oily skin so the greasiness might be a problem for those who do. Overall though, it is definitely worth a try if you are looking for a new primer.

              I really like this primer! It has a nice cream to powder finish. Only issue is you need to use quite a bit to cover your whole face. Makes my makeup last longer and apply smoother.

                      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! :-)

                    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):
