        It works just as well as some $30+ primers I've used in the past. Worked well on my large pores. Will definitely buy again.

          I have used primers that cost 3 times as much and this one works just as good. Just be carful not to overuse, or it can be a little greasy. A little goes a long way, which makes it an even better value!

            I use this product as an undereye concealer, as well as a concealer for other dark or red spots on my face. I use Bare Minerals powdered makeup. It covers well and the concealer helps make my skin look much clearer.

                        • 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.
