        Primer really smooths skin and keeps makeup looking fresh all day. Those with dry skin will appreciate it as it also has a lightly moisturizing feel. I swear by this product because it does everything I want it to do and costs much less than others which aren't even up to par with the Ulta brand. PERFECT!!!

                  • 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!

                  • Q:

                    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. I am older, sun damage, fine lines; with redness and dark spots that need hidden
